Transport properties of the quark-gluon plasma

Abstract Transport properties of a thermal medium determine how its conserved charge densities (for instance the electric charge, energy or momentum) evolve as a function of time and eventually relax

Holographic approach to quark–gluon plasma in heavy ion collisions

We review recent applications of the dual holographic approach to describing the quark–gluon plasma observed in high-energy collisions of relativistic heavy nuclei. Holography and AdS/CFT duality

Transport coefficients in Yang-Mills theory and QCD.

An analytic fit formula for the temperature dependence of η/s over the whole temperature range from a glueball resonance gas at low temperatures, to a high-temperature regime consistent with perturbative results is provided.

The state-of-the-art results from lattice simulations are reviewed and they are connected to the experimental information from the relativistic heavy ion collider and the large hadron collider to gain an unprecedented understanding of the properties of quark-gluon plasma.

Transport properties of the fluid produced at relativistic heavy-ion collider

It is by now well known that the relativistic heavy-ion collisions at RHIC, BNL have produced a strongly interacting fluid with remarkable properties, among them the lowest ever observed ratio of the

Properties of the Quark Gluon Plasma from Lattice QCD

Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) is the theory of the strong interaction, the theory of the interaction between the constituents of composite elementary particles (hadrons). In the low energy regime of

Study of shear viscosity of SU(2)-gluodynamics within lattice simulation

A bstractThis paper is devoted to the study of two-point correlation function of the energy-momentum tensor 〈T12T12〉 for SU(2)-gluodynamics within lattice simulation of QCD. Using multilevel

Quark-flavor dependence of the shear viscosity in a quasiparticle model

We study the temperature-dependence of the shear viscosity to entropy density ratio in pure Yang-Mills theory and in QCD with light and strange quarks within kinetic theory in the relaxation time

Transport coefficients of two-flavor quark matter from the Kubo formalism

The transport coefficients of quark matter at nonzero chemical potential and temperature are computed within the two-flavor Nambu–Jona-Lasinio model. We apply the Kubo formalism to obtain the thermal

Energy-momentum tensor correlators and viscosity

Collective flow has been observed in heavy ion collisions, with a large anisotropic component, and ideal hydrodynamic calculations had significant successful in describing the distribution of

Heavy quark diffusion from the lattice

We study the diffusion of heavy quarks in the quark gluon plasma using the Langevin equations of motion and estimate the contribution of the transport peak to the Euclidean current-current

Transport coefficients of a gluon plasma.

The results show that the ratio of the shear Viscosity to the entropy is less than one and the bulk viscosity is consistent with zero in the region 1.4 < or = T/T(c), where a new state of matter is being pursued in BNL RHIC experiments.

Energy-momentum tensor correlators and spectral functions

We calculate the thermal Euclidean correlators and the spectral functions of the energy-momentum tensor for pure gauge theories, including at non-zero spatial momentum, at leading order in

The formalism needed to extract transport coefficients from SU(3) gluon thermodynamics on Euclidean lattices is discussed and a Monte Carlo simulation has been performed to study the behavior of thermal correlation functions of the energy-momentum tensor.

Bulk viscosity of QCD matter near the critical temperature

Kubo's formula relates bulk viscosity to the retarded Green's function of the trace of the energy-momentum tensor. Using low energy theorems of QCD for the latter we derive the formula which relates

Spectral sum rules for the quark-gluon plasma

We derive sum rules involving the spectral density of the stress-energy tensor in N = 4 super-Yang-Mills theory and pure Yang-Mills theory. The sum rules come from the hydrodynamic behavior at small

Flow at the SPS and RHIC as a quark-gluon plasma signature.

With the EOS fixed from SPS data, predictions at RHIC are quantified where the quark-gluon plasma (QGP) pressure is expected to drive additional radial and elliptic flows and the strong elliptic flow observed in the first RHIC measurements does not conclusively signal this nascent QGP pressure.
