Inflation of fireballs, the gluon wind and the homogeneity of the HBT radii at RHIC


We solve analytically the ellipsoidally expanding fireball hydrodynamics with source terms in the momentum and energy equations, using the non-relativistic approximation. We find that energy transport from high pt jets of gluons to the medium leads to a transient, exponential inflation of the fireballs created in high energy heavy ion collisions. In this… (More)
