In high-energy heavy-ion collisions, the magnetic field is very strong right after the nuclei penetrate each other and a nonequilibrium system of quarks and gluons builds up. Even though quarks might not be very abundant initially, their dynamics must necessarily be influenced by the Lorentz force. Employing the (3+1)-d partonic cascade Boltzmann approach to multiparton scatterings (BAMPS), we show that the circular Larmor movement of the quarks leads to a strong positive anisotropic flow of… 

Magnetic fields in heavy ion collisions: flow and charge transport

At the earliest times after a heavy-ion collision, the magnetic field created by the spectator nucleons will generate an extremely strong, albeit rapidly decreasing in time, magnetic field. The

Magnetic field in expanding quark-gluon plasma

Intense electromagnetic fields are created in the quark-gluon plasma by the external ultrarelativistic valence charges. The time evolution and the strength of this field are strongly affected by the

Effect of intense magnetic fields on reduced-magnetohydrodynamics evolution in sNN=200 GeV Au + Au collisions

We investigate the effect of large magnetic fields on the $2+1$ dimensional reduced-magnetohydrodynamical expansion of hot and dense nuclear matter produced in $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}$ = 200 GeV Au+Au

Transverse expansion of hot magnetized Bjorken flow in heavy ion collisions

We argue that the existence of an inhomogeneous external magnetic field can lead to radial flow in transverse plane. Our aim is to show how the introduction of a magnetic field generalizes the

Transverse expansion of (1 + 2) dimensional magneto-hydrodynamics flow with longitudinal boost invariance

In the present work, we investigate the effects of magnetic field on expanding hot and dense nuclear matter as an ideal fluid. We consider QGP, on the particular case of a (1 + 2) dimensional

Transverse expansion of ideal-magneto-hydrodynamics flow in (1+2D) Bjorken scenario

In the present work, we investigate the effect of an external magnetic field on the dimensional magnetohydrodynamical expansion of hot and dense nuclear matter as an ideal fluid with infinite

Magneto-vortical evolution of QGP in heavy ion collisions

The interplay of magnetic field and thermal vorticity in a relativistic ideal fluid might generate fluid vorticity during the fluid evolution provided the flow fields and the entropy density of the

Relativistic dynamics of point magnetic moment

The covariant motion of a classical point particle with magnetic moment in the presence of (external) electromagnetic fields is revisited. We are interested in understanding extensions to the Lorentz

Relativistic non-resistive viscous magnetohydrodynamics from the kinetic theory: a relaxation time approach

We derive the relativistic non-resistive, viscous second-order magnetohydrodynamic equations for the dissipative quantities using the relaxation time approximation. The Boltzmann equation is solved
