Extraction of the specific shear viscosity of quark-gluon plasma from two-particle transverse momentum correlations
The specific shear viscosity, η/s, of the quark-gluon plasma formed in ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions at RHIC and LHC is estimated based on the progressive longitudinal broadening of
Jet Quenching in The Most Vortical Fluid: A Holographic Approach
The STAR collaboration at the RHIC facility has recently announced the exciting discovery of direct evidence for extremely large vorticity in the Quark-Gluon Plasma generated in peripheral

Jet measurements in heavy ion physics
A hot, dense medium called a quark gluon plasma (QGP) is created in ultrarelativistic heavy ion collisions. Early in the collision, hard parton scatterings generate high momentum partons that
Wilson loops in heavy ion collisions and their calculation in AdS/CFT
Expectation values of Wilson loops define the nonperturbative properties of the hot medium produced in heavy ion collisions that arise in the analysis of both radiative parton energy loss and
Numerical magneto-hydrodynamics for relativistic nuclear collisions
We present an improved version of the ECHO-QGP numerical code, which self-consistently includes for the first time the effects of electromagnetic fields within the framework of relativistic
Angular momentum conservation in heavy ion collisions at very high energy
The effects of angular momentum conservation in peripheral heavy ion collisions at very high energy are investigated. It is shown that the initial angular momentum of the quark-gluon plasma should
