Terrestrial Mini-Bang: Transmuting a Color Glass Condensate into Quark Gluon Plasma at RHIC – Raju Venugopalan

Location: Rockefeller 221

The Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory is currently completing run 5. We discuss some of the remarkable and unexpected results emerging from experiments on Gold-Gold collisions at the ultrarelativistic energies of RHIC as well as results from Deuteron-Gold and Proton-Proton collisions at the same energies. Together, they provide a compelling (if not completely understood) picture of

a) the quark-gluon matter produced at RHIC and, unexpectedly,
b) a description of the matter constituting the wavefunction of a high energy hadron as a Color Glass Condensate.
