# Real time evolution of non-Gaussian cumulants in the QCD critical regime

@article{Mukherjee2015RealTE, title={Real time evolution of non-Gaussian cumulants in the QCD critical regime}, author={Swagato Mukherjee and Raju Venugopalan and Yi Yin}, journal={Physical Review C}, year={2015}, volume={92}, pages={034912} }

In this study, we derive a coupled set of equations that describe the nonequilibrium evolution of cumulants of critical fluctuations for spacetime trajectories on the crossover side of the QCD phase diagram. In particular, novel expressions are obtained for the nonequilibrium evolution of non-Gaussian skewness and kurtosis cumulants. UBy utilizing a simple model of the spacetime evolution of a heavy-ion collision, we demonstrate that, depending on the relaxation rate of critical fluctuations…
