Deconstructing the quark-gluon plasma

from American Physical Society

Quark-gluon plasmas result from relativistic collisions of atomic nuclei and is a state of matter that exists but mere fractions of a second before the strong force condenses the quarks and gluons into protons, neutrons and other stable hadrons. QGP is thought to be the primordial state of matter that existed just at the instant of the Big Bang. Using various known results from lattice quantum chromodynamics simulations, a researcher from Michigan State University has proposed a precise relationship between the charge correlations of the quarks and gluons and statistical correlations between the spatial distributions of the measured hadrons. The proposal, published in Physical Review Letters, can in principle be tested against data from experiments at the Large Hadron Collider and the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider. more
