# Aspects of Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collisions

@article{Wolschin2020AspectsOR, title={Aspects of Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collisions}, author={Georg Wolschin}, journal={Universe}, year={2020} }

The rapid thermalization of quarks and gluons in the initial stages of relativistic heavy-ion collisions is treated using analytic solutions of a nonlinear diffusion equation with schematic initial conditions, and for gluons with boundary conditions at the singularity. On a similarly short time scale of t ≤ 1 fm/c, the stopping of baryons is accounted for through a QCD-inspired approach based on the parton distribution functions of valence quarks, and gluons. Charged-hadron production is…
