Journal Club 17: Multiplicities from black-hole formation in heavy-ion collisions

Mr. Mohammad Ghaemmaghami from IPM


On this week journal club, Mr Mohammad Ghaemmaghami will review the following paper:
Title: Multiplicities from black-hole formation in heavy-ion collisions.
Abstract: The formation of trapped surfaces in the head-on collision of shock waves in conformal and non-conformal backgrounds is investigated. The backgrounds in-clude all interesting confining and non-confining backgrounds that may be relevant for QCD. Several transverse profiles of the shocks are investigated including distri-butions that fall-off as powers or exponentials. Different ways of cutting-off the UV contributions (that are expected to be perturbative in QCD) are explored. Under some plausible simplifying assumptions our estimates are converted into predictions for multiplicities for heavy-ion collisions at RHIC and LHC.
