Does quark-gluon plasma feature an extended hydrodynamic regime?

  title={Does quark-gluon plasma feature an extended hydrodynamic regime?},
  author={Weiyao Ke and Yi Yin},
We investigate the response of the near-equilibrium quark-gluon plasma (QGP) to perturbation at non-hydrodynamic gradients. We propose a conceivable scenario under which sound mode continues to dominate the medium response in this regime. Such a scenario has been observed experimentally for various liquids and liquid metals. We further show this extended hydrodynamic regime (EHR) indeed exists for both the weakly-coupled kinetic equation in the relaxation time approximation (RTA) and the…

Recent developments aimed at understanding whether, and if so how, systems that produce relatively few particles and are only one to a few times the size of a proton, can behave like fluids are described.

Towards the Little Bang Standard Model

I review recent progress in developing a complete dynamical model for the evolution of the Little Bang fireballs created in relativistic heavy-ion collisions, and using the model to extract the

Damping of hard excitations in strongly coupled N = 4 plasma

: The damping of high momentum excitations in strongly coupled maximally supersymmetric Yang-Mills plasma is studied. Previous calculations of the asymptotic behavior of the quasinormal mode spectrum

Relativistic Hydrodynamics: A Singulant Perspective

There is growing evidence that the hydrodynamic gradient expansion is factorially divergent. We advocate for using Dingle’s singulants as a way to gain analytic control over its large-order behaviour

Convergence of hydrodynamic modes: insights from kinetic theory and holography

We study the mechanisms setting the radius of convergence of hydrodynamic dispersion relations in kinetic theory in the relaxation time approximation. This introduces a qualitatively new feature with

Hydrodynamic gradient expansion in linear response theory

One of the foundational questions in relativistic fluid mechanics concerns the properties of the hydrodynamic gradient expansion at large orders. Studies of expanding systems arising in heavy-ion

Hydrodynamization and nonequilibrium Green’s functions in kinetic theory

Non-equilibrium Green's functions provide an efficient way to describe the evolution of the energy-momentum tensor during the early time pre-equilibrium stage of high-energy heavy ion collisions.

Flow in AA and pA as an interplay of fluid-like and non-fluid like excitations

To study the microscopic structure of quark–gluon plasma, data from hadronic collisions must be confronted with models that go beyond fluid dynamics. Here, we study a simple kinetic theory model that

The complex life of hydrodynamic modes

We study analytic properties of the dispersion relations in classical hydrody- namics by treating them as Puiseux series in complex momentum. The radii of convergence of the series are determined by

Short-Wavelength Collective Excitations in Liquid Rubidium Observed by Coherent Neutron Scattering

The short-wavelength collective excitations in liquid rubidium at 320 K have been studied by coherent neutron scattering. For values of
