Overview Talk Relativistic Heavy Ion Physics Friday Morning


Prof. Pawel Danielewicz (Michigan State University)


Transport theory is a common tool in drawing conclusions from energetic nuclear reactions. Successes and struggles of the theory will be discussed. Currently, a new precision of the theory is demanded as efforts are under way to learn about symmetry energy at supranormal densities and to extrapolate from laboratory measurements to neutron star properties. The project of transport code comparisons will be, in particular, discussed, aiming at enhanced precision of the inferences from data. In the project, the researchers from around the world test their codes in simplified situations, against each other and against benchmark results that can be calculated by other methods. Sensitivity to physical inputs of interest to the experiments is being assessed and uncertainties tied to technical details are quantified.
