Title of Talk: Charm and beauty in heavy-ion collisions

Abstract: Heavy-ion collision experiments allow us to study nuclear matter under extreme conditions. At these high temperatures, quarks and gluons exist in a deconfined phase which we call quark-gluon plasma. Among all particles produced in the collision, heavy quarks (i.e. charm and beauty) play a special role: they experience all the stages of the expanding plasma and thus are powerful tools to study its transport properties. The modeling of the heavy-quark dynamics in the plasma has challenged the community for years. In this talk we will give an overview of experimental results of heavy flavors that motivate a fluid-dynamic description of the dynamics of heavy quarks in the quark-gluon plasma.

Venue (HYBRID-EVENT): Goldene Box, Physikalisches Institut, INF 226, 69120 Heidelberg AND all talks will also be streamed via the permanent Zoom-link:

The main idea of the CRC 1225 Lunch Seminars is to bring together all scientists involved in our collaboration on a regular basis to allow exchange and discussion even outside one’s own research topics. We therefore invite all PIs and working group members of the CRC 1225 ISOQUANT to participate in the Lunch Seminars and to use this opportunity for getting to know each other, fruitful discussions and valuable exchange.

The seminar will take place in presence in accordance with the current COVID-19 regulations for on-site events (Please wear a FFP2 mask or surgical mask if the minimum distance of 1.5m can not be guaranteed).
