Lattice gauge description of colliding nuclei

Published

Journal Article

We propose a novel formalism for simultaneously describing both the hard and soft parton dynamics in ultrarelativistic collisions of nuclei. The emission of gluons from the initially coherent parton configurations of the colliding nuclei and low-p1 colour coherence effects are treated in the framework of a Yang-Mills transport equation on a coupled lattice-particle system. A collision term is added to the transport equation to account for the remaining intermediate and high-p1 interactions in an infrared finite manner.
