Large energy deposition from LHC quenching jets restarted interest
to shock formation. Shocks also have theoretical significance as
the simplest out-of-equilibrium setting without time dependence.
While weak shocks have small gradients and can be
treated hydrodynamically in the Navier-Stokes (NS) approximation,
the ones without a small parameter (strong shocks) needs other methods.
Two...

Collective flow measurements continue to play an important role in ongoing efforts to map out the temperature dependence of the transport coefficient $\frac{\eta}{s}(T)$, for the strongly interacting matter produced in heavy ion collisions at RHIC. Recently, PHENIX has performed a detailed set of measurements of the higher-order flow coefficients ($v_{n}$ for n=2,3,4), for both inclusive and...

Global and collective dynamics

Oral Presentation

A primary goal of the RHIC Beam Energy Scan (BES) is to search for evidence of a transition
between a hadron gas and a Quark Gluon Plasma. The dependence of $v_{1}$ and higher flow
harmonics on system size and beam energy may be sensitive to the degrees of
freedom in the system, as a consequence of early pressure gradients and a potential softening in
the equation of state. In this talk,...

Global and collective dynamics

Oral Presentation

We present a systematic study on the evolution of hadron spectra and their azimuthal anisotropy from the lowest collision energy studied at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), √s = 7.7A GeV, to the highest energy reachable at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), √s = 5500A GeV [1]. As the collision energy increases, the resulting increases of the initial temperature, and fireball lifetime,...

The particle spectrum from RHIC and LHC can be decomposed into harmonic series that defines the dipolar flow $v_1$, the elliptic flow $v_2$, the triangular flow $v_3$, and $v_4$, and $v_5$ etc. To understand the origin of higher order harmonics, we extend the linear response formalism for anisotropic flow to include the non-linear response which results from the interactions between the lowest...

Global and collective dynamics

Oral Presentation

We present a general derivation of relativistic fluid dynamics from the relativistic Boltzmann equation using the method of moments [1]. The main difference between our approach and the traditional 14-moment approximation is that we do not close the fluid-dynamical equations of motion by truncating the expansion of the single-particle momentum distribution function. Instead, we keep all the...
