Phenomenology of Relativistic Heavy Ion Collisions University of Sao Paulo
This course is a topical review of relativistic heavy-ion collisions. The objective is to survey the major topics in the field, in as much depth as time allows.
This course will give a broad understanding of the history and current state of the field of heavy-ion collisoins. It will be useful for anyone doing research in the field, or anyone with such an interest.
Each student choose a topic of interest, among those discussed in the course, and present a seminar.
1. Introduction to heavy-ion collisions i. motivation ii. description of experiments and facilities 2. Bulk physics i. Measurements _ single particle observables, 2-particle correlations (ridge, integrated and differential vn, rn, PCA analysis), multiparticle correlations (cumulants, mixed harmonic correlations) ii. Theory _ relativistic hydrodynamics, freeze-out, hadronic physics, full simulations of heavy-ion collisions, early and recent results. 3. Physics of the initial state i. Saturation physics, low-x, Color Glass Condensate ii. Thermalization / isotropization 1. Weak coupling approaches 2. Strong coupling approaches
