Parton rescattering and colour screening in Au+Au collisions at RHIC


Journal Article

We study the microscopic dynamics of quarks and gluons in relativistic heavy ion collisions in the framework of the Parton Cascade Model. We use lowest order perturbative QCD cross sections with fixed lower momentum cutoff p Tmin. We calculate the time evolution of the Debye-screening mass μD for Au+Au collisions at √s = 200 GeV per nucleon pair. We also determine the energy density reached through hard and semi-hard processes at RHIC and analyze the extent of perturbative rescattering among partons. © 2003 Elsevier Science E.V.
