“Critical Dynamics and Search for QCD Critical Point”

Dynamical properties of a system near the critical point are sensitive to the critical correlation length. Understanding critical dynamics is crucial for searching for CD critical point in heavy-ion collision program. I report recent theoretical develop-ments on studying dynamical properties of QCD matter near the critical point. In particular, I will discuss the real time evolution of critical fluctuations in QCD critical regime. I will also report the dependence of the heavy quark drag force coefficient on the critical correlation length. The implications of our studies on search for QCD critical point and their connection to condensed matter systems near the critical point will also be discussed.
