Quark-gluon plasma tomography
Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) is a primordial state of matter, which consists of interacting free quarks and gluons. QGP likely existed immediately after the Big Bang, and this extreme form of matter is today created in Little Bangs, ultrarelativistic collisions of heavy nuclei at RHIC and LHC experiments. Studying the QGP created in these collisions may enable us to learn about the properties of matter at its most basic level.
QGP physics is a new, interdisciplinary, scientific field, which combines modern nuclear physics, high energy physics and plasma physics. In this talk, we will give a brief overview of the QGP, as well as introduce our theoretical approaches to study this exciting new form of matter.
