Reaching for the early time with far-from-equilibrium attractors


Abstract: The identification of attractor behavior offers some hope for a conceptually straightforward albeit simplified picture of quark-gluon plasma physics following a relativistic heavy-ion collision. The strong longitudinal expansion which characterizes the dynamics - at least in some model systems - leads to attractor behavior already at very early times. This expansion-driven universality makes it possible to connect features of the system at asymptotically small times to observables that reflect late time physics. I will review some of these developments, including recent work aiming at exploring features of early-times. I will also d ...
