Anisotropic Hydrodynamics: Three Lectures
Anisotropic hydrodynamics is a non-perturbative reorganization of relativistic hydrodynamics that takes into account the large momentum-space anisotropies generated in ultrarelativistic heavy-ion
Closing the equations of motion of anisotropic fluid dynamics by a judicious choice of a moment of the Boltzmann equation
In Moln\'ar et al. [Phys. Rev. D 93, 114025 (2016)] the equations of anisotropic dissipative fluid dynamics were obtained from the moments of the Boltzmann equation based on an expansion around an
Applying Bayesian parameter estimation to relativistic heavy-ion collisions: simultaneous characterization of the initial state and quark-gluon plasma medium
We quantitatively estimate properties of the quark-gluon plasma created in ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions utilizing Bayesian statistics and a multiparameter model-to-data comparison. The
Derivation of anisotropic dissipative fluid dynamics from the Boltzmann equation
Fluid-dynamical equations of motion can be derived from the Boltzmann equation in terms of an expansion around a single-particle distribution function which is in local thermodynamical equilibrium,
Second-order ( 2 + 1 ) -dimensional anisotropic hydrodynamics
We present a complete formulation of second-order $(2+1)$-dimensional anisotropic hydrodynamics. The resulting framework generalizes leading-order anisotropic hydrodynamics by allowing for deviations
Transport coefficients for bulk viscous evolution in the relaxation-time approximation
Department of Physics, Kent State University, Kent, Ohio 44242, USA(Dated: July 29, 2014)We derive the form of the viscous corrections to the phase-space distribution function due to bulkviscous
Determining Fundamental Properties of Matter Created in Ultrarelativistic Heavy-Ion Collisions
Posterior distributions for physical parameters describing relativistic heavy-ion collisions, such as the viscosity of the quark-gluon plasma, are extracted through a comparison of hydrodynamic-based
Transport Coefficients of Bulk Viscous Pressure in the 14-moment approximation
We compute the transport coefficients that appear in the fluid-dynamical equations for the bulk viscous pressure and shear-stress tensor using the 14-moment approximation in the limit of small, but
New High-Resolution Central Schemes for Nonlinear Conservation Laws and Convection—Diffusion Equations
It is proved that a scalar version of the high-resolution central scheme is nonoscillatory in the sense of satisfying the total-variation diminishing property in the one-dimensional case and the maximum principle in two-space dimensions.
