QCD plasma instability and thermalisation at heavy ion collisions
Presenter: Kari Rummukainen — University of Oulu
Dietrich Bödeker, Kari Rummukainen
Plasma instabilities may play a significant role in thermalising the QCD plasma in heavy ion collisions. We numerically investigate the instabilities in QCD using an effective theory for real-time evolution of the soft gauge field modes. With suitable initial conditions, we observe a strong instability which rapidly produces a quasi-thermal distribution of the soft modes.
