We use the Hamiltonian formulation of kinetic theory to perform a stability analysis of non-thermal fixed points in a non-Abelian plasma. We construct a perturbative expansion of the Fokker-Planck collision kernel in an adiabatic approximation and …

The formalism of Baier-Dokshitzer-Mueller-Peigné-Schiff and Zakharov determines modifications of parton splittings in the QCD plasma that arise from medium-induced gluon radiation. Here, we extend this BDMPS-Z formalism to medium-modifications of the …

By including the recently introduced thermal shear term that contributes to the spin polarization vector at local equilibrium, we determine longitudinal polarization of $\Lambda$ hyperons emitted from a hot and rotating hadronic medium using the …

In this work we analyze the reliability of several techniques for computing jet and hadron spectra at different collision energies. This is of particular relevance for discovering energy loss in the upcoming oxygen-oxygen (OO) run at the LHC, for …

With current high precision collider data, the reliable estimation of theoretical uncertainties due to missing higher orders (MHOs) in perturbation theory has become a pressing issue for collider phenomenology. Traditionally, the size of the MHOs is …

Motivated by recent interest in collectivity in small systems, we calculate the harmonic flow response to initial geometry deformations within weakly coupled QCD kinetic theory using the first correction to the free-streaming background. We derive a …

In relativistic nuclear collisions the production of hadrons with light (u,d,s) quarks is quantitatively described in the framework of the Statistical Hadronization Model (SHM). Charm quarks are dominantly produced in initial hard collisions but …

We demonstrate that oxygen-oxygen (OO) collisions at the LHC provide unprecedented sensitivity to parton energy loss in a system whose size is comparable to those created in very peripheral heavy-ion collisions. With leading and next-to-leading order …

Medium induced parton energy loss is not conclusively established neither in very peripheral heavy-ion collisions nor in proton-ion collisions. However, the standard interpretation of azimuthal momentum anisotropies in theses systems implies some …

Heavy-ion collisions at BNL's Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collider (RHIC) and CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) provide strong evidence for the formation of a quark-gluon plasma, with temperatures extracted from relativistic viscous hydrodynamic …
