"The equation of state of dense nuclear matter from heavy-ion collisions"

Dr. Agnieszka Sorensen, University of Washington Dept. of Physics, and Institute of Nuclear Theory (INT)

In this talk I will discuss progress on constraining the equation of state (EOS) of symmetric dense nuclear matter, as described in arXiv:2208.11996. The study uses hadronic transport simulations with parametrizable mean-field interactions together with flow data from the STAR experiment at the center-of-mass energies of 3.0 and 4.5 GeV to constrain the EOS through Bayesian analysis. I will discuss the findings in the context of other known constraints from heavy-ion collisions and neutron star studies. I will also outline developments in state-of-the-art hadronic transport codes necessary to fully utilize the potential of the forthcoming data from the BES-II FXT program at RHIC to constrain the EOS of symmetric dense nuclear matter.
