Theory Seminar - Maneesha Pradeep

On Monday, April 22, at 1 p.m., Maneesha Pradeep of the University of Maryland will present "Maximum-Entropy Freeze-Out in Heavy-Ion Collisions" via Zoom.

We kindly ask all attendees to provide their full name when entering the event. If attendees have questions for the speaker, please introduce yourself before asking the question.

Abstract: Understanding the equation of state (EoS) and the phase diagram of QCD is one of the grand visions of heavy-ion collision experiments. The key to unraveling the phase diagram lies in the event-by-event fluctuations of particle multiplicities, which are sensitive to thermodynamic properties. Connecting the particle observables to QCD EoS, often involving a procedure known as freeze-out, is a non-trivial step. We propose a generalization to the half-a-century-old Cooper-Frye freeze-out prescription via the maximum-entropy approach. This generalization allows us to connect the predictions of hydrodynamics with experimental measurements of fluctuations in a way that fulfills the conservation laws on an event-by-event basis.
