The quark-gluon plasma: collective dynamics and hard thermal loops
Abstract We present a unified description of the high temperature phase of QCD, the so-called quark–gluon plasma, in a regime where the effective gauge coupling g is sufficiently small to allow forExpand

Nonperturbative renormalization group and momentum dependence of n-point functions. I.
We present an approximation scheme to solve the nonperturbative renormalization group equations and obtain the full momentum dependence of the n-point functions. It is based on an iterative procedureExpand

Nonperturbative renormalization group and momentum dependence of n-point functions. II.
In a companion paper [Blaizot, Phys. Rev. E 74, 051116 (2006)], we have presented an approximation scheme to solve the nonperturbative renormalization group equations that allows the calculation ofExpand

Bose–Einstein condensation and thermalization of the quark–gluon plasma
Abstract In ultra-relativistic heavy ion collisions, the matter formed shortly after the collision is a dense, out of equilibrium, system of gluons characterized by a semi-hard momentum scale Q s .Expand

Quark production, Bose–Einstein condensates and thermalization of the quark–gluon plasma
Abstract In this paper, we study the thermalization of gluons and N f flavors of massless quarks and antiquarks in a spatially homogeneous system. First, two coupled transport equations for gluonsExpand

Fluid dynamics of out of equilibrium boost invariant plasmas
Abstract By solving a simple kinetic equation, in the relaxation time approximation, and for a particular set of moments of the distribution function, we establish a set of equations which, on theExpand

Renormalization of Φ-derivable approximations in scalar field theories
Abstract We discuss the renormalization of Φ -derivable approximations for scalar field theories. In such approximations, the self-energy is obtained as the solution of a self-consistent equationExpand
