The dynamics of partons, hadrons and strings in relativistic nucleus-nucleus collisions is analyzed within the novel Parton-Hadron-String Dynamics (PHSD) transport approach, which is based on a dynamical quasiparticle model for partons (DQPM) matched to reproduce recent lattice-QCD results including the partonic equation of state in thermodynamic equilibrium. Scalarand vector-interaction densities are extracted from the DQPM as well as effective scalarand vector-mean fields for the partons. The… CONTINUE READING
