# Diffusion processes involving multiple conserved charges: A study from kinetic theory and implications to the fluid-dynamical modeling of heavy ion collisions

@article{Fotakis2020DiffusionPI, title={Diffusion processes involving multiple conserved charges: A study from kinetic theory and implications to the fluid-dynamical modeling of heavy ion collisions}, author={Jan A. Fotakis and Moritz Greif and Carsten Greiner and Gabriel S. Denicol and Harri Niemi}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2020}, volume={101}, pages={076007} }

The bulk nuclear matter produced in heavy ion collisions carries a multitude of conserved quantum numbers: electric charge, baryon number, and strangeness. Therefore, the diffusion processes associated to these conserved charges cannot occur independently and must be described in terms of a set of coupled diffusion equations. This physics is implemented by replacing the traditional diffusion coefficients for each conserved charge by a diffusion coefficient matrix, which quantifies the coupling… Expand

It is demonstrated that the diffusion currents do not depend only on gradients of their corresponding charge density, but that the different diffusion charge currents are coupled, and the baryon diffusion current is strongly affected by bARYon charge gradients but also by its coupling to gradients in strangeness.
