Holography under extreme conditions

Project description

Studying the strange properties of quark-gluon plasma

Quark-gluon plasma (QGP) filled the entire universe the moment before matter was created. Today, its properties and mechanisms of fast onset (still unexplained) are studied by theoretical physicians in the experimental research taking place at the Large Hadron Collider and Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider. The close-to-perfectly-fluid nature of QGP has been proved. However, its mechanism of emergence from hadronic collisions or the liquid-like behaviour of small systems emerging from proton-proton collisions are yet to be explained. The EU-funded ExHolo project aims to create a dynamical picture of the thermalisation of out-of-equilibrium matter into hydrodynamic fields. It will use a novelty framework and real-time approach for studying dynamics of hot matter out of equilibrium to tag the QGP properties of heavy-ion collisions.
