Simple kinetic-theory tests of dissipative and anisotropic hydrodynamics
We solve the one-dimensional boost-invariant Boltzmann equation in the re- laxation time approximation and compare the results with the predictions of dissipative and anisotropic hydrodynamics. We
Exact solution of the (0+1)-dimensional Boltzmann equation for a massive gas
We solve the one-dimensional boost-invariant kinetic equation for a relativistic massive system with the collision term treated in the relaxation time approximation. The result is an exact integral
Analytical attractor and the divergence of the slow-roll expansion in relativistic hydrodynamics
We find the general analytical solution of the viscous relativistic hydrodynamic equations (in the absence of bulk viscosity and chemical potential) for a Bjorken expanding fluid with a constant
Exact solutions of the (0+1)-dimensional kinetic equation in the relaxation time approximation
We present exact solutions of the (0+1)-dimensional kinetic equation for a massive gas in the relaxation time approximation. At first, we analyse the case of classical statistics and argue that the
Improved anisotropic hydrodynamics ansatz
We introduce an improved form for the anisotropic hydrodynamics distribution function which explicitly takes into account the free-streaming and equilibrating contributions separately. We demonstrate
Introduction to Hydrodynamics
We give a pedagogical review of relativistic hydrodynamics relevant to relativistic heavy ion collisions. Topics discussed include linear response theory derivation of 2nd order viscous hydrodynamics
Transport coefficients in ultrarelativistic kinetic theory
A spatially-periodic longitudinal wave is considered in relativistic dissipative hydrodynamics. At sufficiently small wave amplitudes, an analytic solution is obtained in the linearised limit of the


Testing viscous and anisotropic hydrodynamics in an exactly solvable case
We exactly solve the one-dimensional boost-invariant Boltzmann equation in the relaxation time approximation for arbitrary shear viscosity. The results are compared with the predictions of viscous
Dissipative Dynamics of Highly Anisotropic Systems
Relativistic dissipative hydrodynamics from kinetic theory with relaxation-time approximation
Starting from Boltzmann equation with relaxation time approximation for the collision term and using Chapman-Enskog like expansion for distribution function close to equilibrium, we derive
Conformal Relativistic Viscous Hydrodynamics: Applications to RHIC
A new set of equations for relativistic viscous hydrodynamics that captures both weak-coupling and strong-coupling physics to second order in gradients has been developed recently. We apply this
Highly anisotropic and strongly dissipative hydrodynamics for early stages of relativistic heavy-ion collisions
We introduce a new framework of highly anisotropic hydrodynamics that includes dissipation effects. Dissipation is defined by the form of the entropy source that depends on the pressure anisotropy
Dissipative relativistic fluid dynamics: a new way to derive the equations of motion from kinetic theory.
This work rederive the equations of motion of dissipative relativistic fluid dynamics from kinetic theory using the second moment of the Boltzmann equation, and shows that, for the one-dimensional scaling expansion, the method is in better agreement with the solution obtained from the BoltZmann equation.

Relativistic viscous hydrodynamics, conformal invariance, and holography
We consider second-order viscous hydrodynamics in conformal field theories at finite temperature. We show that conformal invariance imposes powerful constraints on the form of the second-order
Highly-anisotropic hydrodynamics in 3+1 space-time dimensions
Recently formulated model of highly-anisotropic and strongly dissipative hydrodynamics is used in 3+1 dimensions to study behavior of matter produced in ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions. We
Non-boost-invariant motion of dissipative and highly anisotropic fluid
The recently formulated framework of anisotropic and dissipative hydrodynamics (ADHYDRO) is used to describe non-boost-invariant motion of the fluid created at the early stages of heavy-ion
