The fluctuating shape of the proton

Four examples of the gluon distribution inside a proton at high energies in the IP-Glasma model with geometric proton fluctuations constrained by experimental data on exlcusive diffractive vector meson production. For more information see arXiv:1603.04349.

Comparing free streaming to hydro evolution

2+1D Classical Yang-Mills (left) and hydrodynamic simulation (right) of the same initial condition in a heavy-ion collision. The classical Yang-Mills simulation becomes freely streaming after approximately 0.2 fm/c. Shown is the energy density in the transverse plane. For more information on the simulations refer to arXiv:1009.3244 and arXiv:1202.6646.

MUSIC transverse plane energy density after evolution

Hydro simulation of a single Au+Au collision. Shown is the energy density in the transverse plane. For more information on the simulation refer to arXiv:1009.3244.

JIMWLK evolution in rapidity of Wilson line correlators

Shown is the rapidity evolution of the correlator of two Wilson lines, one being at the center, the other at position (x,y). This illustrates the degree of fluctuations and shows how the correlation length decreases dynamically with increasing rapidity Y.
For more information on the calculation refer to arXiv:1108.4764.

Effect of shear viscosity in a heavy-ion collision event

Shown is the time evolution of the energy density distribution in the transverse plane at zero space-time rapidity.
Left: Ideal hydrodynamics. Right: Viscous hydrodynamics with shear viscosity to entropy density ratio = 0.16.
For more information on the simulation refer to arXiv:1109.6289.

MUSIC single event isothermal contours

Hydro simulation of a single Au+Au collision. Shown are contours of constant temperature in x, y, and z coordinates. For more information on the simulation refer to arXiv:1009.3244.

MUSIC isothermal contours

Hydro simulation of a Au+Au collision at impact parameter b=2.4fm using a lattice equation of state. Shown is a view towards the z-x-plane of contours of constant temperature ranging from 130 MeV (blue) to 240 MeV (red). For more information on the simulation refer to arXiv:1004.1408.

MARTINI movies

Hard parton (p_T>4 GeV, |y|< 1) tracks in the transverse plane with temperature profile in the background (brighter=hotter). We used impact parameter b=7.5 fm. Gluons are shown in red, all light quarks in blue. Energy tranferred in elastic and radiative processes is proportional to the radius of the blobs that appear when a process occurs.
For more information on the simulation see arXiv:0909.2037. [click on picture to see movie]

Side view. Note that due to time dilation interactions happen later in lab time for partons with larger rapidity. For more information on the simulation see arXiv:0909.2037. [click on picture to see movie]

Parton tracks in MARTINI (teaser)

Projections of tracks of light quarks and gluons with E>4T on the transverse plane. Point sizes indicate strength of energy loss at that position, color code indicates time. Au+Au collision with impact parameter b=2.4 fm, partons have p_T>5 GeV. Simulation includes radiative (AMY) and elastic processes.

Energy loss calculation

The animation above shows the evolution of the momentum distribution of a hard parton passing through a brick of QGP at constant temperature (T=200 MeV (left) and T=300 MeV (right)). The initial quark of energy E=10 GeV loses energy due to gluon radiation and elastic collisions. Results for purely radiative energy loss (green) are shown together with combined radiative and collisional energy loss, where two different implementations of the collisional loss were used. An approximation using mean energy loss accompanied by a diffusion term (blue) and the complete leading order expression (red). See arXiv:0901.3498 for details.

Chromo-Weibel instability

Click on the image to see the animated version. It shows the filamentation during the unstable growth of the chromo-magnetic and -electric fields in an anisotopic plasma, before the system becomes turbulent. The left panel shows the current in the x-direction, the other panels show the three color components (SU(2) simulation) of the chromo-magnetic field in y-direction. See arXiv:0810.4306 and arXiv:0710.1223 for details. [click on picture to see animation]
