The First fm/c of Heavy-Ion Collisions

We present an introductory review of the early time dynamics of high-energy heavy-ion collisions and the kinetics of high temperature QCD. Expand abstract.

Nucleon spin polarization in intermediate-energy heavy-ion collisions

Based on a spin-dependent Boltzmann-Uehling-Uhlenbeck transport model with spin-dependent potentials incorporated using the lattice Hamiltonian method, we have studied the global spin polarization perpendicular to the reaction plane as well as the local spin polarization in the longitudinal direction...

Experimental searches for the chiral magnetic effect in heavy-ion collisions

The chiral magnetic effect (CME) in quantum chromodynamics (QCD) refers to a charge separation (an electric current) of chirality imbalanced quarks generated along an external strong magnetic field. Expand abstract.

First fragmentation function measurements from full jet reconstruction in heavy-ion collisions at $\sqrt{s_{_{\rm NN}}}=200$ GeV by STAR

Measurements of inclusive hadron suppression and di-hadron azimuthal correlations in ultra-relativistic nuclear collisions at RHIC have provided important insights into jet quenching in hot QCD matter, but are limited in their sensitivity due to well-known biases. Expand abstract.

Longitudinal dependence of open heavy flavor $R_\text{AA}$ in relativistic heavy-ion collisions

Effective-energy universality approach describing total multiplicity centrality dependence in heavy-ion collisions

The recently proposed participant dissipating effective-energy approach is applied to describe the dependence on centrality of the multiplicity of charged particles measured in heavy-ion collisions at the collision energies up to the highest LHC energy of 5 TeV. Expand abstract.

Pseudo-rapidity dependent hydrodynamic response in heavy-ion collisions

We propose a differential hydrodynamic response relation, $V_2(\zeta)=\int d\xi G(\zeta-\xi) \mathcal{E}_2(\xi)$, to describe the formation of a pseudo-rapidity dependent elliptic flow in heavy-ion collisions, in response to a fluctuating three-dimensional initial density profile. Expand abstract.

Azimuthal charged particle correlations as a probe for local strong parity violation in heavy-ion collisions

One of the most interesting and important phenomena predicted to occur in heavy-ion collisions is the local strong parity violation. Expand abstract.

Searching for New Long Lived Particles in Heavy Ion Collisions at the LHC

Our results suggest that collisions of ions lighter than lead, which are currently under discussion in the heavy ion community, are well-motivated from the viewpoint of searches for New Physics. Expand abstract.
