• Flow Components and Initial State CM Fluctuations 

      Csernai, Laszlo; Skålvik, Astrid Marie; Wang, Du-Juan; Magas, Volodymyr; Stöcker, Horst; Strottman, Daniel D.; Cheng, Yun; Yan, Yu-Liang (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2012)
      At the LHC, the strong collective flow is observed in Pb+Pb collisions, as shown by the azimuthal correlations in the transverse-momentum distributions of the produced particles. We calculate flow components in a relativistic ...
    • Flow vorticity in peripheral high-energy heavy-ion collisions 

      Csernai, Laszlo; Magas, Volodymyr; Wang, Du-Juan (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2013-03-22)
      Vorticity development is studied in the reaction plane of peripheral relativistic heavy-ion reactions where the initial state has substantial angular momentum. The earlier predicted rotation effect and Kelvin Helmholtz ...
    • New method to detect rotation in high-energy heavy-ion collisions 

      Csernai, Laszlo; Svelle, Sindre; Wang, Du-Juan (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014-03-31)
      With increasing beam energies the angular momentum of the fireball in peripheral heavy-ion collisions increases, and the proposed differential Hanbury Brown and Twiss analysis is able to estimate this angular momentum ...
    • Rotation and Turbulence in Peripheral Heavy Ion Collisions 

      Wang, Du-Juan (Doctoral thesis, 2014-12-16)
      In our computational fluid dynamics (CFD) calculations the Kelvin-Helmholtz instability (KHI) starts to develop in peripheral collisions. At high energies the shear viscosity of the Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP) flow is becoming ...
    • Rotation and Turbulent Instability in Peripheral Heavy Ion Collisions 

      Csernai, Laszlo; Wang, Du-Juan (Conference object; Peer reviewed, 2014-04-29)
      In recent years fluid dynamical processes became a dominant direction of research in high energy heavy ion reactions. The Quark-gluon Plasma formed in these reactions has low viscosity, which leads to significant fluctuations ...
    • Rotation in an exact hydrodynamical model 

      Csernai, Laszlo; Wang, Du-Juan; Csörgo, T. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014-08-01)
      We study an exact and extended solution of the fluid dynamical model of heavy ion reactions and estimate the rate of slowing down of the rotation due to the longitudinal and transverse expansion of the system. The initial ...
    • Turbulence, Vorticity and Lambda Polarization 

      Csernai, Laszlo; Becattini, Francesco; Wang, Du-Juan (Conference object; Peer reviewed, 2014)
      Present highest energy heavy ion experiments show the dominance of the fluid dynamical processes. The possibility of new collective phenomena, rotation and turbulence occurs, which were known only in macroscopic systems ...
    • Viscous potential flow analysis of peripheral heavy ion collisions 

      Wang, Du-Juan; Néda, Zoltán; Csernai, Laszlo (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2013-02-19)
      The conditions for the development of a Kelvin-Helmholtz instability (KHI) for the quark-gluon plasma (QGP) flow in a peripheral heavy ion collision is investigated. The projectile and target side particles are separated ...
    • Vorticity in peripheral collisions at the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research and at the JINR Nuclotron-based Ion Collider fAcility 

      Csernai, Laszlo; Wang, Du-Juan; Bleicher, Marcus; Stöcker, Horst (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014-08-29)
      The flow vorticity development is studied in the reaction plane of peripheral relativistic heavy-ion reactions at energies just above the threshold of the transition to a quark-gluon plasma (QGP). Earlier calculations at ...
    • Λ polarization in peripheral heavy ion collisions 

      Becattini, Francesco; Csernai, Laszlo; Wang, Du-Juan (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2013-09-13)
      We predict the polarization of Λ and Λ¯ hyperons in peripheral heavy ion collisions at ultrarelativistic energy, based on the assumption of local thermodynamical equilibrium at the freeze-out. The polarization vector is ...
