Global fluid fits to identified particle transverse momentum spectra from heavy-ion collisions at the Large Hadron Collider

Transverse momentum spectra of identified particles produced in heavy-ion collisions at the Large Hadron Collider are described with relativistic fluid dynamics. We perform a systematic comparison of experimental data for pions, kaons and protons up …

Initial conditions for hydrodynamics from weakly coupled pre-equilibrium evolution

We use effective kinetic theory, accurate at weak coupling, to simulate the preequilibrium evolution of transverse energy and flow perturbations in heavy-ion collisions. We provide a Green function which propagates the initial perturbations to the …
