Space-time evolution of bulk QCD matter at RHIC


Journal Article

We introduce a combined fully three-dimensional macroscopic/microscopic transport approach employing relativistic 3D-hydrodynamics for the early, dense, deconfined stage of the reaction and a microscopic non-equilibrium model for the later hadronic stage where the equilibrium assumptions are not valid anymore. Within this approach we study the dynamics of hot, bulk QCD matter, which is being created in ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions at RHIC. In particular, we perform a detailed analysis of the reaction dynamics, hadronic freeze-out, transverse flow and elliptic flow. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2007.
