Non-conformal attractor behavior is studied by solving non-conformal second order viscous hydrodynamics with respect to boost-invariant plasmas. Numerical solutions of the relative decay rate of the enthalpy density, the inverse shear and bulk Reynolds numbers, all exhibit universal patterns towards an ideal fluid description at late stages, demonstrating the existence of non-conformal hydrodynamic attractor. However, as a generic feature, the non-conformal hydrodynamic attractor emerges only… Expand

Using and comparing kinetic theory and second-order Chapman-Enskog hydrodynamics, we study the non-conformal dynamics of a system undergoing Bjorken expansion. We use the concept of ‘free-streamingExpand
Relativistic hydrodynamic attractors with broken symmetries: non-conformal and non-homogeneous

Early- and Late-Time Behavior of Attractors in Heavy-Ion Collisions.
In Israel-Stewart theory (IS) and kinetic theory where the universal attractor extends to arbitrarily early times, it is shown that all initial conditions approach the attractor at early times by a power law while their approach is exponential at late times. Expand
Non-perturbative rheological behavior of a far-from-equilibrium expanding plasma
Abstract For the Bjorken flow we investigate the hydrodynamization of different modes of the one-particle distribution function by analyzing its relativistic kinetic equations. We calculate theExpand
Relativistic Fluid Dynamics Far From Local Equilibrium.
The framework of fluid dynamics far from local equilibrium for a conformal system is introduced, and the hydrodynamic attractor solutions for resummed Baier-Romatschke-Son-Starinets-Stephanov theory, kinetic theory in the relaxation time approximation, and strongly coupled N=4 super Yang-Mills theory are identified for a system undergoing Bjorken flow.
