Non-equilibrium phase transition in ultrarelativistic heavy ion collisions

Objective

Experiments with ultra relativistic heavy ion collisions are performed with the aim to study the phase diagram of strongly interacting matter and the phase transition into a deco fined phase. The properties of the matter determine the collective dynamical evolution of the system produced in the collision. There are indications that due to rapid expansion of the system the possible deco fined phase can be super cooled and a rapid decomposition may occur. We will study this scenario and investigate its consequences for the harmonic observable. In particular, we will focus on implications for the fluctuations of the multiplicity as a function of rapidity, chemical composition of the produced harmonic gas, the phase space density of peons, and the two-particle correlations.
