Title: Constraining Relativistic Hydrodynamic Behavior in Nuclear Collisions

 

Abstract: Hydrodynamics is a ubiquitous phenomenon in nature.  It also provides a remarkably powerful description of the space-time evolution of relativistic nuclear collisions.  Nevertheless, understanding its success in such systems is far from trivial.  To date, several indicators have been developed to quantitatively assess the validity of relativistic hydrodynamics quite generally, including systematic expansions in deviations from local equilibrium, expansions in thermodynamic gradients, and constraints imposed by relativistic causality.  In this talk, I will discuss some recent progress in exploring the applicability of relativistic hydrodynamics to both small and large nuclear collisions, using a number of these quantitative indicators to assess its validity.  I will focus in particular on recent findings concerning large violations of causality in state-of-the-art numerical simulations of p+Pb, O+O, and Pb+Pb collisions at the LHC.  I will also discuss some of the implications of these findings for further constraining our understanding of nuclear collision evolution.
