I compute the first viscous correction to the thermal distribution function. With this correction, I calculate the effect of viscosity on spectra, elliptic flow, and HBT radii. Indicating the breakdown of hydrodynamics, viscous corrections become of order one for pT ∼ 1.5 GeV. Viscous corrections to HBT radii are particularly large and reduce the outward… CONTINUE READING
