Gravitational-Wave Constraints on the Neutron-Star-Matter Equation of State.
It is concluded that the maximal radius of a 1.4-solar-mass neutron star is 13.6 km, and that the smallest allowed tidal deformability of a similar-mass star is Λ(1.4  M_{⊙})=120.4%. Expand
Cold quark matter
We perform an O({alpha}{sub s}{sup 2}) perturbative calculation of the equation of state of cold but dense QCD matter with two massless and one massive quark flavor, finding that perturbation theoryExpand
Evidence for quark-matter cores in massive neutron stars
The theory governing the strong nuclear force—quantum chromodynamics—predicts that at sufficiently high energy densities, hadronic nuclear matter undergoes a deconfinement transition to a new phaseExpand
Constraining Neutron Star Matter with Quantum Chromodynamics
In recent years, there have been several successful attempts to constrain the equation of state of neutron star matter using input from low-energy nuclear physics and observational data. WeExpand
Thermalization in weakly coupled nonabelian plasmas
A bstractWe investigate how relativistic, nonabelian plasmas approach equilibrium in a general context. Our treatment is entirely parametric and for small Yang-Mills coupling α. First we studyExpand
Isotropization and Hydrodynamization in Weakly Coupled Heavy-Ion Collisions.
We numerically solve the (2+1)-dimensional effective kinetic theory of weak coupling QCD under longitudinal expansion, relevant for early stages of heavy-ion collisions. We find agreement withExpand
Interacting quark matter equation of state for compact stars
Lattice QCD studies of thermodynamics of hot quark-gluon plasma (QGP) demonstrate the importance of accounting for the interactions of quarks and gluons, if one wants to investigate the phaseExpand
Future physics opportunities for high-density QCD at the LHC with heavy-ion and proton beams.
The future opportunities for high-density QCD studies with ion and proton beams at the LHC are presented. Four major scientific goals are identified: the characterisation of the macroscopic longExpand
Neutron star structure from QCD
Abstract.In this review article, we argue that our current understanding of the thermodynamic properties of cold QCD matter, originating from first principles calculations at high and low densities,Expand
Analytic structure of nonhydrodynamic modes in kinetic theory
How physical systems approach hydrodynamic behavior is governed by the decay of nonhydrodynamic modes. Here, we start from a relativistic kinetic theory that encodes relaxation mechanisms governed byExpand
