In case you wonder…

Page 3: Quark Matter 2005 Theoretical  Summary

What we need from theory…

New ideas – good and bad. Diligent work on good old ideas. Safe disposal of bad old ideas.

Make sense of data. Suggest new experimental tests

and analyses.

2. Fields will persist at late times and counteract viscosity effects (Pzz P):

Thermalization by “black magic”

Interpretation of external fields as temperature

B. Müller, W. Greiner, J. Rafelski [Phys. Lett. A 63 (1977) 181]

“We show that average excitation of the vacuum state in the presence of an external electric field can be described by an effective temperature kT = eE/(2πm).”

Quantum fields in accelerated frames appear thermal with T = a/2.

Application to AA collisions suggests “thermalization” time t ~ /Qs (Kharzeev).

Not quite clear how far it carries:

Problems even in QED, because a = F/m, and forces (except gravity) distinguish particles by their charge. Temperature does not.

Moreover, QCD radiation can be generated by “rotation” rather than acceleration of color charges.

Interesting, but not entirely new

concept

Page 9: Quark Matter 2005 Theoretical  Summary

Other new ideas

Jet-induced Mach cones ( Ruppert’s talk) DWBA treatment of FSI in HBT (Cramer) includes last inelastic

interaction of emitted particles (not kinetics!) Correct Vopt ? Consistent ? Apply to other hadrons.

Recombination (hard-soft) as medium contribution to fragmentation function (E. Wang).

(AND NOT SO GOOD)

OLD IDEAS

Page 11: Quark Matter 2005 Theoretical  Summary

3-D Hydrodynamics

New 3-D relativistic hydro code (SPheRIO) with continuous freeze-out available (Hama).

3-D hydro code with partial hadrochemical equilibrium (Hirano). Understanding of v2() requires improved treatment of hadronic freeze-out.

3-D hydro code with transition to hadronic cascade at Tf < Tc (“hydro+micro” approach – Nonaka).

We now need to see systematic studies of AA phenomenology: flow, hadron spectra, imbedded hard probes (photons, jets).

Immediate goal is determination of EOS and s(x,t) from data. How far can we go without QGP viscosity?

Scattering on “D-meson” like bound states in the plasma (Rapp). Radiative energy loss implies RAA(e) > 2RAA() (Djordjevic).

Parton cascade with gg ggg and detailed balance equilibrates rapidly (Xu). More efficient than tr would naively suggest.

Are parton cascades with huge ’s (Molnar, Zhang) really telling us anything useful, except the obvious, or are they misleading?

Review of status of CGC field (Itakura)

Relevant to forward hadron production in d+Au (Jalilian-Marian) ?

Quark pair production in strong CGC fields (Lappi): Very efficient – maybe more light quarks than gluons ! Most pairs produced by colliding gluon CGC sheets, not equilibrating gluon fields.

EM probes

Beautiful review (Gale) – little to add. Photons: Good (improvable) theory can be a powerful tool ! Lepton pairs: The fun starts now !

Can we rule out certain models, e.g. mass shift only?

NA60 Courtesy: R. Rapp Useful to incorporate general predictions of QCD (no m without ) and to explore implication for broader questions:

What is the path to chiral symmetry restoration and deconfinement?

Jets & energy loss

Medium modified splitting functions in MLLA (Borghini): Excellent description of STAR data !

Di-hadron fragmentation functions (Majumder). Quantitative predictions for LHC from RHIC (Armesto).

Flow effects can be important: Longitudinal flow (Bjorken or not) Transverse flow, for tangential

emission Important to compare calculations

Not unlike calculation of gluon structure function, maybe moments are calculable using euclidean techniques.

Charmonium Review of J/ suppression theory

(Nardi). Still no generally accepted

theoretical framework. Since mc sets a hard scale, eikonal techniques (as in parton energy loss) might serve as basis of unified framework.

No quantitative agreement between lattice (spectral function) and potential approaches to disappearance of heavy quarkonia (Mocsy, Petreczky).

Detailed calculations of J/ regeneration are needed.

Plenty of room for improvements !

Don’t get confused by irritating details….the obvious may be true!

Baryons compete with mesons

Recombination always dominates over fragmentation for thermal quark spectrum.

Page 28: Quark Matter 2005 Theoretical  Summary

Hadronization Question of joint or separate

chemical and kinetic freeze-out remains unresolved (Florkowski).

Need to do sophisticated freeze-out calculations using opacity, reach a consensus on freeze-out physics. Does a fit of the spectrum with T =

109 MeV really make sense? Could we detect m shift or change

in medium?

PHENIX

Data suggest s = 1 at RHIC. But excellent fits with s > 2 exist (Letessier & Rafelski). And s can be different in QGP and HG Determine s as function of pT ?

Explore QCD phase diagram as function of s (Taylor expansion?). Could influence order of transition (just like Nf)!

Page 29: Quark Matter 2005 Theoretical  Summary

Recombination

Recombination model works amazingly well: Transition to common RAA at pT ~ 6 GeV/c. Systematic deviation from quark number scaling in v2 predicted from

higher Fock space admixture is observed (at 5% level - Sorensen). Dihadron correlations (Bass) Pedastal and correlation effect (Hwa)

Seen (STAR) !

Determine s from multiplicity and upper limit on T from photon spectrum.

OR:

Page 33: Quark Matter 2005 Theoretical  Summary

Measuring s and Entropy is related to produced particle number and is conserved

in the expansion of the (nearly) ideal fluid: dN/dy → S → s = S/V.

Two approaches:1) Use inferred particle numbers at chemical freeze-out from statistical

model fits of hadron yields;2) Use measured hadron yields and HBT system size parameters as kinetic

freeze-out (Pratt & Pal).

Good news: results agree within errors: dS/dy = 5100 ± 400 for Au+Au (6% central, 200 GeV/NN)

→ s = (dS/dy)/(R20) = 33 ± 3 fm-3 (at 0 = 1 fm/c)

Energy density from parton energy loss ?
