Título: Probing the Quark Gluon Plasma with Correlation Functions
Conferenciante: Claude A. Pruneau, Wayne State University
Día: Jueves 30 de Noviembre (atención día inusual)
Lugar: Seminario de Física Teórica I
Studies of heavy-ion collisions at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (Brookhaven National Laboratory) and the Large Hadron Collider (CERN) have enabled the discovery of a form of matter known as Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP) believed to have had a fleeting existence during the first micro-second of the Universe. The focus of recent investigations involves measurements of the properties of this QGP such as its shear and bulk viscosity, its heat capacity, conductivity, and transport properties. Efforts to determine these quantities proceed largely by means of correlation function measurements. I will present evidence for the production of a QGP based on such correlation functions and discuss current efforts towards the determination, in particular, of the QGP shear viscosity.
