In this talk, I will summarize recent theoretical efforts to understand the flow measurements in the BNL Beam Energy Scan (BES) program. The measured bulk flow observables at these collision energies and their collision energy dependence has not been understood on a quantitative level yet. This motivates us to improve our current theoretical modeling for the heavy-ion collisions at these low...
25. Properties of the QGP and its hadronization based on correlation and fluctuation measurements at RHIC and the LHC
Rene Bellwied (University of Houston (US))
I will review the latest results from RHIC and LHC on correlation and fluctuation measurements. I will relate the deduced transport properties of the QGP to possible mechanisms of hadronization in the QCD crossover region, which manifest themselves in higher order fluctuations. Comparisons of lattice QCD and statistical equilibrium's models might allow us to shed light on the transition...

I will review recent experimental progress in studying collective phenomena in small colliding systems with high-multiplicity final state at RHIC and the LHC.

The *hydrodynamic fluctuations* are thermal fluctuations arising in the event-by-event hydrodynamic evolution of the system, and they have effects on heavy-ion observables such as the higher harmonics $v_n$. To quantitatively determine the matter properties such as the shear viscosity and the relaxation times, it is needed to take into account the hydrodynamic fluctuations as well as the...

Recent data from the beam-energy scan at RHIC has shown interesting behavior in the region of large baryon densities, where a significant increase in the net-proton kurtosis has been reported. We model the dynamical QCD phase transition in heavy-ion collisions using chiral fluid dynamics. This model is able to describe relevant nonequilibrium effects that other hydrodynamic models lack. We...
