Interfacing the initial stage with fluid dynamics

ATLAS measurements of dimuons produced via $\gamma\gamma$ scattering processes in inelastic, non-ultra-peripheral Pb+Pb collisions at 5.02 TeV are presented using an integrated luminosity of 1.9 nb$^{−1}$. The $\gamma\gamma \rightarrow \mu^{+}\mu^{-}$ pairs are identified via selections on pair momentum asymmetry and acoplanarity, and the contribution from the heavy flavor decay background is...

The last decade of hadron spectroscopy has unveiled a wealth of states that do not have the properties expected of particles composed of 2 or 3 valence quarks.

Among the most intriguing of these exotics is the X(3872), which various models attempt to describe as a hadronic molecule, a compact tetraquark, an unexpected charmonium state, or their mixtures. Production in heavy ion collisions, as...

We present a new Monte Carlo that generates events based on statistics specified with any 1-point and 2-point function, including arbitrary correlations. Such a code can be useful for quickly generating events when analytic formulas are known (for example from recent derivations of CGC fluctuations), and for use in Bayesian analyses, where the initial state can be characterized by...

We develop a framework to simulate the 3+1D dynamics of the initial energy deposition in heavy-ion collisions by taking into account the finite longitudinal extent of the colliding nuclei in the Color-Glass Condensate framework. Based on a simple model for the color charge distributions of the colliding nuclei, we demonstrate how the boost-invariant limit is recovered at high energies along...

In 1974, J. L. Anderson and H. R. Witting proposed the Relaxation Time Approximation (RTA) to the relativistic Boltzmann equation [1], following all the development already made in the non-relativistic case by Bhatnagar, Gross and Krook [2]. This approximation is used in several fields of physics and has been recently employed to study the hydrodynamization of the matter produced in...
