Thermalization of gluons at RHIC including gg ↔ ggg interactions in a parton cascade

Abstract

Employing a newly developed pQCD inspired parton cascade we simulate the space time evolution of gluons which are produced initially in a heavy ion collision at RHIC energy. The inelastic gg ↔ ggg interactions are for the first time implemented obeying full detailed balance. The numerical results show that thermalization of gluons is mainly driven by the… (More)
