We consider the evolution of a parton plasma created in Au+Au collisions at LHC and at RHIC energies. Using Boltzmann equation, relaxation time approximation and perturbative QCD, we show the physics of both thermal and chemical equilibration in a transparent manner. In particular, we show inelastic processes are, contrary to common assumption, more… (More)
