By colliding heavy ions at high energies, physicists are able to "break up" nuclear particles like protons and neutrons and create a hot "subatomic soup", the quark-gluon plasma (QGP). In recent years, there have been significant interests and progress on the spin degrees of freedom in the QGP fluid. In particular, novel transport phenomena arise from the nontrivial interplay between quark...

In relativistic heavy ion collisions (HIC), not only a strong magnetic field but also strong vorticity could be generated. Recent observations of the polarization of Lambda hyperons have triggered intensive studies for vorticity-induced polarization and spin dynamics in relativistic fluids. However, more recent studies suggest that the spin polarization could be possibly led by non-equilibrium...
22. Relativistic quantum molecular dynamics approach for heavy-ion collisions at high baryon density region
Prof. Yasushi Nara (Akita International University)
A new N-body non-equilibrium transport model based on the relativistic quantum molecular dynamics (RQMD) is developed for the simulations of high energy heavy ion collisions at high baryon density regions. In this approach, hadrons interact via the sigma-omega fields in the mean-field approximation as well as the hard two-body scatterings which produce the strings and hadronic resonances in...
