Spectral function of fermions in a highly occupied non-Abelian plasma
We develop a method to obtain fermion spectral functions non-perturbatively in a non-Abelian gauge theory with high occupation numbers of gauge fields. After recovering the free field case, weExpand
Evolution of initial stage fluctuations in the glasma
We perform a calculation of the oneand two-point correlation functions of energy density and axial charge deposited in the glasma in the initial stage of a heavy ion collision at finite proper time.Expand


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
Classical gluodynamics of high energy nuclear collisions: an erratum and an update
Abstract We comment on the relation of our previous work on the classical gluodynamics of high energy nuclear collisions to recent work by Lappi [Phys. Rev. C 67 (2003) 054903]. While our results forExpand
Collective non-Abelian instabilities in a melting color glass condensate.
First results for (3 + 1)D simulations of SU(2) Yang-Mills equations for matter expanding into the vacuum after a heavy ion collision are presented and the numerical ratio gamma/kappa0 is compared to the corresponding value predicted by the hard thermal loop formalism for anisotropic plasmas.

Overpopulated gauge fields on the lattice
We study nonequilibrium dynamics of SU(2) pure gauge theory starting from initial over-population, where intense classical gauge fields are characterized by a single momentum scale Q_s.Expand
Broken boost invariance in the Glasma via finite nuclei thickness
Abstract We simulate the creation and evolution of non-boost-invariant Glasma in the early stages of heavy ion collisions within the color glass condensate framework. This is accomplished byExpand
Non-perturbative computation of gluon mini-jet production in nuclear collisions at very high energies
At very high energies, in the infinite momentum frame and in light-cone gauge, a hard scale proportional to the high parton density arises in QCD. In an effective theory of QCD at small x, this scaleExpand
Soft amplitudes in hot gauge theories: A general analysis
Abstract A systematic method for the calculation of amplitudes in hot gauge theories is developed. It is necessary to distinguish between hard momenta (of order T ) and soft momenta (of order gT ).Expand
Kinetic theory of nonthermal fixed points in a Bose gas
We outline a kinetic theory of non-thermal fixed points for the example of a dilute Bose gas, partially reviewing results obtained earlier, thereby extending, complementing, generalizing andExpand
Imprints of fluctuating proton shapes on flow in proton-lead collisions at the LHC
Abstract Results for particle production in s = 5.02 TeV p + Pb collisions at the Large Hadron Collider within a combined classical Yang–Mills and relativistic viscous hydrodynamic calculation areExpand
Simulating collisions of thick nuclei in the color glass condensate framework
We present our work on the simulation of the early stages of heavy-ion collisions with finite longitudinal thickness in the laboratory frame in $3+1$ dimensions. In particular we study the effects ofExpand
