Title: "Extracting the Diffusivity of Light Quarks in the Quark Gluon Plasma from Heavy-Ion Collisions"

Abstract: The diffusivity and viscosity are the two most fundamental transport coefficients of the quark-gluon plasma. Whereas viscosity has attracted enormous attention, the diffusivity has garnered less attention because it has been seen as less experimentally accessible. In this talk, experimental measurements of correlations based on local charge conservation, especially those involving kaons, will be shown to be sensitive to the diffusivity. It will be demonstrated that with careful modeling and analysis the diffusivity might be extracted at the 50% or factor of 2 level, which is similar to the degree to which the shear viscosity has been constrained.
