The Nuclear Theory Group at Brookhaven National Laboratory is a world leader in High Energy Nuclear Physics. We have a vigorous research program, aimed at understanding the fundamental structure of matter. We maintain a synergy with the experimental program at RHIC; with the research done by RIKEN-BNL Center; and with the Lattice Gauge Theory and High Energy Theory Groups.
Hydro simulation of a single Au+Au collision. Shown is the energy density in the transverse plane.
Charge separation effect — domain walls that separate the region of θ≠0 from the outside vacuum with θ=0 become charged in the presence of an external magnetic field, with the surface charge density ~eθ/Π·eΒ/2Π.
This illustrates the degree of fluctuations and shows how the correlation length decreases dynamically with increasing rapidity Y. More information on the calculation
