Long-time tails in the SYK chain from the effective field theory with a large number of derivatives

- Physics

Characteristics of thermalization of boost-invariant plasma from holography.

- Physics, MedicinePhysical review letters

A sizable anisotropy in the energy-momentum tensor at thermalization is observed, which suggests that effective thermalization in heavy-ion collisions may occur significantly earlier than true thermalization.

Hydrodynamics Beyond the Gradient Expansion: Resurgence and Resummation.

- Physics, MedicinePhysical review letters

This Letter considers the Müller-Israel-Stewart theory applied to a longitudinally expanding quark-gluon plasma system and identifies hydrodynamics as a universal attractor without invoking the gradient expansion, giving strong evidence for the existence of this attractor.

It has recently been understood that the hydrodynamic series generated by the M\"uller-Israel-Stewart theory is divergent, and that this large order behaviour is consistent with the theory of…
