Probes of the quark-gluon plasma and plasma instabilities
Penetrating probes in heavy-ion collisions, like jets and photons, are sensitive to the transport coefficients of the produced quark-gluon plasma, such as shear and bulk viscosity. Quantifying this
Heavy quarks in turbulent QCD plasmas
Abstract.The quark-gluon plasma, which is produced at an early stage of ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions, is expected to be initially strongly populated with chromodynamic fields. We address
QCD thermalization: Ab initio approaches and interdisciplinary connections
Heavy-ion collisions at BNL's Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider and CERN's Large Hadron Collider provide strong evidence for the formation of a quark-gluon plasma, with temperatures extracted from
Impact of momentum anisotropy and turbulent chromo-fields on thermal particle production in quark–gluon-plasma medium
Momentum anisotropy present during the hydrodynamic evolution of the Quark–Gluon Plasma (QGP) in RHIC may lead to the chromo-Weibel instability and turbulent chromo-fields.The dynamics of the quark
Stability of classical chromodynamic fields
A system of gluon fields generated at the earliest phase of relativistic heavy-ion collisions can be described in terms of classical fields. Numerical simulations show that the system is unstable but
Screening properties of quark-gluon plasma obtained from distribution and correlation functions of the constituent quasiparticle model
Based on the constituent quasiparticle model of quark-gluon plasma (QGP), the matrix elements of the density operator and the Wigner function in the color phase space are presented in form of color
Quasiparticle properties of nonequilibrium gluon plasma
We apply classical gluodynamics to early stages of ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions. We start by going through the space-time evolution of ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions in the color
Non-equilibrium hydrodynamics of the quark-gluon plasma
My dissertation is about the formulation and application of anisotropic hydrodynamics as a successful non-equilibrium hydrodynamics model for studying the QGP. For this purpose, I introduce the basic

Quark-Gluon-Plasma Instabilities in Discretized Hard-Loop Approximation
Non-abelian plasma instabilities have been proposed as a possible explanation for fast isotropization of the quark-gluon plasma produced in relativistic heavy-ion colli- sions. We study the real-time

QCD plasma instabilities and bottom-up thermalization
We study the role of QCD plasma instabilities in non-equilibrium quark-gluon plasmas. First, we argue that such instabilities must drastically modify the ``bottom-up'' thermalization scenario for
