It has recently been realized that the Balitsky-JIMWLK equations have serious shortcomings as equations to be used in small-x evolution near the unitarity limit. A recent generalization of the Balitsky equations has been given which corrects these shortcomings. In this paper we present an equivalent discussion, but in terms of the JIMWLK equation where we… (More)
We present a possible scaling solution to pre-equilibrium evolution which interpolates between the instability present in the dense gluon system produced immediately after a heavy ion collision and the final equilibration which occurs later. Our solution depends on a single parameter δ. Depending on the value of δ, our proposed solution matches onto the… (More)
In the initial stage of the bottom-up picture of thermalization in heavy ion collisions, the gluon distribution is highly anisotropic which can give rise to plasma instability. This has not been taken account in the original paper. It is shown that in the presence of instability there are scaling solutions, which depend on one parameter, that match smoothly… (More)
In this study, researchers conducted literature reviews to support or invalidate 14 theorems of the Axiomatic-General Systems Behavioral Theory (A-GSBT) as they applied to an educational context. Researchers investigated the following three questions: 1) Which theorems could possibly be applied to educational systems? 2) Are there empirical studies that… (More)
We calculate the change in the effective mass and width of a Z boson in the environment of a quark-gluon plasma under the conditions expected in Pb-Pb collisions at the LHC. The change in width is predicted to be only about 1 MeV at a temperature of 1 GeV, compared to the natural width of 2490±7 MeV. The mass shift is even smaller. Hence no observable… (More)
We investigate Kolmogorov wave turbulence in QCD or, in other words, we calculate the spectrum of gluons as a function of time, f k (t), in the presence of a source which feeds in energy density in the infrared region at a constant rate. We find an early, an intermediate and a late time form for the gluon spectrum. Wave turbulence in QCD turns out to be… (More)
Recently Kovner and Lublinsky proposed a set of equations which can be viewed as dual to JIMWLK evolution. We show that these dual equations have a natural dipole-like structure, as conjectured by Kovner and Lublin-sky. In the high energy large N c limit these evolution equations reduce to equations previously derived in the dipole model. We also show that… (More)
We calculate the order α s finite temperature correction to dilepton production in quark-gluon plasma arising from the two-loop photon self-energy diagrams for high invariant mass M ≫ T .
