We generalize the derivation of viscous anisotropic hydrodynamics from kinetic theory to allow for non-zero particle masses. The macroscopic theory is obtained by taking moments of the Boltzmann equation after expanding the distribution function around a spheroidally deformed local momentum distribution whose form has been generalized by the addition of a scalar field that accounts non-perturbatively (i.e. already at leading order) for bulk viscous effects. Hydrodynamic equations for the…

( 3+1 )-dimensional anisotropic fluid dynamics with a lattice QCD equation of state
Anisotropic hydrodynamics improves upon standard dissipative fluid dynamics by treating certain large dissipative corrections nonperturbatively. Relativistic heavy-ion collisions feature two such

Latest developments in anisotropic hydrodynamics
We discuss the leading order of anisotropic hydrodynamics expansion. It has already been shown that in the (0+1) and (1+1)-dimensional cases it is consistent with the second order viscous
Dynamical systems and nonlinear transient rheology of the far-from-equilibrium Bjorken flow
In relativistic kinetic theory, the one-particle distribution function is approximated by an asymptotic perturbative power series in the Knudsen number which is divergent. For the Bjorken flow, we
Anisotropic nonequilibrium hydrodynamic attractor
We determine the dynamical attractors associated with anisotropic hydrodynamics (aHydro) and the DNMR equations for a 0+1d conformal system using kinetic theory in the relaxation time approximation.
Anisotropic hydrodynamics with a scalar collisional kernel
Prior studies of non-equilibrium dynamics using anisotropic hydrodynamics have used the relativistic Anderson-Witting scattering kernel or some variant thereof. In this paper, we make the first study
Recent progress in anisotropic hydrodynamics
The quark-gluon plasma created in a relativistic heavy-ion collisions possesses a sizable pressure anisotropy in the local rest frame at very early times after the initial nuclear impact and this
Far-from-equilibrium attractors and nonlinear dynamical systems approach to the Gubser flow
The non-equilibrium attractors of systems undergoing Gubser flow within relativistic kinetic theory are studied. In doing so we employ well-established methods of nonlinear dynamical systems which
