High Baryon Densities Achievable in the Fragmentation Regions of High Energy Heavy-Ion Collisions

In high energy heavy-ion collisions, the two colliding nuclei pass through each other leaving behind an almost baryon-free central region. Most of the baryon charges are carried away by the receding nuclear remnants. During the collisions, a large amount of kinetic energy is deposited in the central region where a new form of matter called quark-gluon plasma is formed. At the same time, the colliding nuclei are highly compressed, resulting in very high baryon densities in the nuclear remnants. In this talk, I will explore the high baryon density achievable in the nuclear remnants and study the hydrodynamic evolution of the high baryon density matter.

This seminar was originally scheduled for September 10.
