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…

Evolution of critical fluctuations in a heavy-ion collision scenario
Abstract We study fluctuations of the sigma field and the net-baryon number on the crossover side of the critical point within the model of nonequilibrium chiral fluid dynamics (NχFD). Herein, the
Diffusive dynamics of critical fluctuations near the QCD critical point
A quantitatively reliable theoretical description of the dynamics of fluctuations in nonequilibrium is indispensable in the experimental search for the QCD critical point by means of
Evolution of Non-Gaussian Hydrodynamic Fluctuations.
TLDR
A Wigner transform for multipoint correlators is introduced and a diagrammatic technique in which the leading order contributions are given by tree diagrams is developed, obtaining the evolution equations for non-Gaussian cumulants to the lead order of the systematic expansion in the magnitude of thermal fluctuations.
Hydrodynamics with parametric slowing down and fluctuations near the critical point
The search for the QCD critical point in heavy-ion collision experiments requires dynamical simulations of the bulk evolution of QCD matter as well as of fluctuations. We consider two essential
The kurtosis of the chiral order parameter and its relevance for heavy-ion collisions
We investigate higher cumulants of the sigma field as the chiral order parameter at the QCD phase transition. We derive a thermodynamic expression for the skewness and kurtosis from susceptibilities
QCD equation of state matched to lattice data and exhibiting a critical point singularity
We construct a family of equations of state for QCD in the temperature range 30MeV≤T≤800MeV and in the chemical potential range 0≤μB≤450MeV. These equations of state match available lattice QCD
Net-proton number fluctuations in the presence of the QCD critical point
Event-by-event fluctuations of the net-proton number studied in heavy-ion collisions provide an important means in the search for the conjectured critical end point (CP) in the QCD phase diagram. We
Broadening of the chiral critical region in a hydrodynamically expanding medium
Abstract.We investigate higher cumulants of the sigma field as the chiral order parameter at the QCD phase transition. We derive a thermodynamic expression for the skewness and kurtosis from
Phenomena at the QCD phase transition in nonequilibrium chiral fluid dynamics (N$\chi$ FD)
Abstract.Heavy-ion collisions performed in the beam energy range accessible by the NICA collider facility are expected to produce systems of extreme net-baryon densities and can thus reach yet
Critical dynamics of relativistic diffusion
We study the dynamics of self-interacting scalar fields with Z2 symmetry governed by a relativistic diffusion equation in the vicinity of a critical point. We calculate spectral functions of the
