Quantum Boltzmann evolution of the Quark-Gluon Plasma

Presented by Mr. William GRUNOW on 5 Jul 2016 from 11:30 to 11:50
Type: Oral Presentation
Track: Track G - Theoretical and Computational Physics

Abstract

The rapid equilibration of the Quark-Gluon Plasma, produced in nucleus-nucleus collisions in a far-from-equilibrium initial state, seems to be difficult to understand theoretically. One reason could be that almost all existing approaches based on the relativistic Boltzmann equation neglect quantum-statistics features of the quarks and gluons. Against this background we put forward a novel Monte-Carlo method to solve the Boltzmann equation, with quantum effects included.
