Abstract The realistic equation of state of strongly interacting matter, that has been successfully applied in the recent hydrodynamic studies of hadron production in relativistic heavy-ion collisions at RHIC, is used in the Friedmann equation to determine the precise time evolution of thermodynamic parameters in the early Universe. A comparison with the results obtained with simple ideal-gas equations of state is made. The realistic equation of state describes a crossover rather than the first… Expand

TLDR
This work investigates the hydrodynamic evolution of the system formed in ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions and finds that an appropriate choice of the initial condition, specifically a simple two-dimensional Gaussian profile for the transverse energy, leads to a uniform description of soft observables measured at the relativisticheavy-ion collider.
