Rapidity profiles from 3+1D Glasma simulations with finite longitudinal thickness

We present our progress on simulating the Glasma in the early stages of heavy ion collisions in a non-boost-invariant setting. Our approach allows us to describe colliding nuclei with finite

3-D structure of the Glasma initial state: Breaking boost-invariance by collisions of extended shock waves in classical Yang-Mills theory

We simulate the 3+1 D classical Yang-Mills dynamics of the collisions of longitudinally extended nuclei, described by eikonal color charges in the Color Glass Condensate framework. By varying the

Simulations of the Glasma in 3+1D.

The Glasma is a gluonic state of matter which can be created in collisions of relativistic heavy ions and is a precursor to the quark-gluon plasma. The existence of this state is a prediction of the

Progress on 3+1D Glasma simulations

An improved scheme cures the numerical Cherenkov instability and paves the way for simulations at higher energies used at LHC.

Linearly polarized gluons and axial charge fluctuations in the glasma

We calculate of the one- and two-point correlation functions of the energy density and the divergence of the Chern-Simons current in the nonequilibrium Glasma state formed in a high-energy nuclear

Heavy quark diffusion in an overoccupied gluon plasma

Abstract We extract the heavy-quark diffusion coefficient κ and the resulting momentum broadening 〈p2〉 in a far-from-equilibrium non-Abelian plasma. We find several features in the time dependence

The energy-momentum tensor at the earliest stage of relativistic heavy-ion collisions

Nuclear collisions at high energies produce a gluon field that can be described using the Colour Glass Condensate (CGC) effective theory at proper times $$\tau \lesssim 1$$ τ ≲ 1  fm. The theory can

  • Physics
  • 2021
We conduct classical statistical simulations for SU(2) gauge theories in a 2+1 dimensional Bjorken expanding space-time with a particular interest in the dynamical behaviour at large time scales.

Spacetime structure of (3+1)D color fields in high energy nuclear collisions

We perform an analytic calculation of the color fields in heavy-ion collisions by considering the collision of longitudinally extended nuclei in the dilute limit of the Color Glass Condensate effective



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 of

3D glasma initial state for relativistic heavy ion collisions

We extend the impact-parameter-dependent Glasma model to three dimensions using explicit small-x evolution of the two incoming nuclear gluon distributions. We compute rapidity distributions of

Fluctuating glasma initial conditions and flow in heavy ion collisions.

We compute initial conditions in heavy ion collisions within the color glass condensate framework by combining the impact parameter dependent saturation model with the classical Yang-Mills

Gluon production at high transverse momentum in the McLerran-Venugopalan model of nuclear structure functions.

The production of high transverse momentum gluons in the McLerran-Venugopalan model of nuclear structure functions is considered and the nuclear target size dependence of the distribution of produced glUons is computed.

Gluon production from non-Abelian Weizsäcker-Williams fields in nucleus-nucleus collisions.

There is a solution of the equations of motion for the two nucleus scattering problem where the fields are time and rapidity independent before the collision and after the collision the solution depends on proper time, but is independent of rapidity.
