DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Mubarak Alqahtani (Kent State University)\nWe presen
t the first comparisons of experimental data with phenomenological results
from 3+1d quasiparticle anisotropic hydrodynamics (aHydroQP). We compare
charged-hadron multiplicity\, identified-particle spectra\, identified-pa
rticle average transverse momentum\, charged-particle elliptic flow\, and
identified-particle elliptic flow produced in LHC 2.76 TeV Pb+Pb collision
s. The dynamical equations used for the hydrodynamic stage utilize non-co
nformal aHydroQP. The resulting aHydroQP framework naturally includes bot
h shear and bulk viscous effects in addition to higher-order non-linear tr
ansport coefficients. The 3+1d aHydroQP evolution obtained is self-consis
tently converted to hadrons using anisotropic Cooper-Frye freezeout perfor
med on a fixed-energy-density hypersurface. The final production and deca
ys of the primordial hadrons are modeled using a customized version of THE
RMINATOR 2. In this first study\, we utilized smooth Glauber-type initial
conditions and a single effective freeze-out temperature $T_{\\rm FO} = 1
30$ MeV with all hadronic species in full chemical equilibrium. With this
rather simple setup\, we find a very good description of many heavy-ion o
bservables.\n\nhttps://agenda.infn.it/event/12163/contributions/12518/

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Seyong Kim (Sejong University)\nAnnihilation of heav
y particles in thermal environment (e.g.\, quarkonium decay in Quark-Gluon
Plasma and heavy dark matter particle annihilation in early universe) is
influenced by long distance non-perturbative effect because multple exchan
ges of light particle between slow-moving incoming heavy particle is possi
ble. Previously\, we found that the existence of bound states in thermal Q
CD can lead to large enhancement for S-wave pair annihilation of\nheavy qu
ark and heavy anti-quark in QGP by lattice NRQCD measurement. We continue
our study of thermally averaged Sommerfeld factor\, and here we report on
our recent lattice calculation of the Sommerfeld factor for P-wave channel

study the properties of the dense SU(2) QCD. The\nlattice simulations are
carried out with improved gauge action and\nsmaller lattice spacing as com
pared to our previous work. This allowed us to approach closer to the cont
inuum limit and reach larger densities without lattice artifacts. We measu
red string tension and Polyakov loop as functions of chemical potential an
d temperature. At sufficiently large baryon density and zero temperature w
e observe confinement/deconfinement transition which manifests itself as a
vanishing of the string tension and rising of the Polyakov loop.\n\nhttps

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Atsushi Nakamura (FEFU)\nCanonical approach is a way
to map QCD at imaginary chemical potential regions to the real ones. The
essential idea is simple: Z(¥mu\,T) = ¥sum_n Z_n (exp(¥mu/T))^n\, wher
e Z_n\, the canonical partition functions\, do not depend on ¥mu. We con
struct Zn in the imaginary ¥mu regions\, and we can calculate Z(¥mu\,T)
at any real ¥mu.\nSince Z_n drops very fastly as |n| increases\, and we m
ust fight against the overlap problem\, we need several algorithmic and co
mputational tricks\, such as a multi-precision calculation. \nIn Vladivos
tok\, we have investigated the sources of unstable Z_n\, and developed me
thods to overcome them. I will report these studies and the outcomes\, es
pecially those for comparison of heavy ion collision experiment.\n\nhttps:

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Vasily Sazonov (LPT Orsay\, Université Paris-Sud)\n
Motivated by the recent discovery of the $SU(2N_F)$ symmetric degeneracy i
n the spectrum of QCD with truncated low modes of the Dirac operator\, we
derive Ward identities associated to $SU(2N_F)$-transformations in the lim
it of vanishing quark masses. Low temperature QCD is not invariant under t
he $SU(2N_F)$-transformations due to the non-invariance of the classical a
ction and the path integral measure\, its part related to chiral symmetry
is broken spontaneously. We show that\, when the quark condensate vanishes
at sufficiently high temperature or when it is removed artificially\, the
restoration of chiral symmetry leads to the simplification of the $SU(2N_
F)$-Ward identities. The simplified Ward identities look like they would b
e if $SU(2N_F)$ is preserved by the classical action and path integral mea
sure.\n\nhttps://agenda.infn.it/event/12163/contributions/12508/

librium conditions\, the standard hydrodynamic equations are\nexpected to
receive corrections from the non-ideal non-dissipative terms of the\nstres
s-energy tensor. \n\nWe show how these corrections can be obtained in a s
ystematical way by\nperforming a perturbative expansion around the homogen
eous global equilibrium\ncondition for small values of acceleration and vo
rticity. The final outcome is\nthat the thermodynamic coefficients associa
ted with these corrections can be\nexpressed in term of euclidean correlat
ors of the stress-energy tensor operator\nand the generators of the Lorent
z group.\n\nThese correlators can in principle be estimated nonperturbativ
ely by lattice\nQCD techniques and we will present the analytic results th
at can be obtained in\ntwo cases: a free scalar charged field and a free D

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Pavel Buividovich (Regensburg University)\nWe demons
trate that non-Abelian lattice field theories such as principal chiral mod
el and pure lattice gauge theory in the large-N limit admit infrared-finit
e weak-coupling expansion in powers of coupling and logs of coupling\, rem
iniscent of re-summed series in thermal field theory and resurgent trans-s
eries without exponential terms. Such a double-series structure arises due
to the bare mass term proportional to the coupling constant\, which stems
from the Jacobian in the path integral measure and is absent in the scale
-invariant classical action. This term renders the perturbative expansion
infrared-finite even for an infinite lattice size\, which allows to sample
it using Diagrammatic Monte-Carlo. On the exactly solvable example we dem
onstrate that this expansion incorporates the non-perturbative mass gap. W
e then develop a DiagMC algorithm for sampling planar diagrams in the prin
cipal chiral model and numerically demonstrate the convergence of our expa
nsion for up to 12 leading orders\, which is the practical limit set by th
e increasingly strong sign problem at high orders. We find reasonably good
agreement with conventional Monte-Carlo\, extrapolated to infinite N. Fin
ally\, we comment on the applicability of our approach to planar QCD at ze

problems for our present understanding of the QCD phase diagram\, which
are not fully settled in lattice simulations. We will present a theoreti
cal analysis based on Ward Identities which sheds light on this issue and
where partner degeneration is systematically studied and connected with p
hysical processes for the full scalar/pseudoscalar $U(3)$ meson nonets.
Model-independent results are derived\, which in addition allow to unde
rstand the temperature dependence of lattice screening masses through par
ticular quark condensate combinations. Their realization in $U(3)$ Chiral
perturbation Theory will also be described. Special attention will be pai
d to the role of the thermal $f_0(500)$ state to describe lattice data
for the scalar susceptibility through thermal corrections to its pole pa
rameters generated from unitarized pion scattering.\n\nhttps://agenda.in

stems are among the strongest sources of gravitational waves and among the
main targets for ground-based gravitational-wave interferometers Advanced
LIGO and Virgo. The observation of these events in the gravitational-wave
window can provide us with unique information on neutron stars' masses\,
radii\, and spins\, including the possibility to set strong constraints o
n the unknown equation of state of matter at supranuclear densities. A cru
cial and necessary step for the development of gravitational-wave astronom
y with these sources is the precise knowledge of the dynamics of the sourc
es and of the emitted waveforms. I will talk about recent developments on
the modeling of gravitational waves from neutron star mergers using numeri
cal simulations in general relativity\, focusing on how these observations
can constrain extreme density matter.\n\nhttps://agenda.infn.it/event/121

not taken into account by the Langevin algorithm\, which is probabilistic\

first-principle lattice study of continuity conjecture in $2d$ $SU(N) \\ti
mes SU(N)$ Principal Chiral Model (PCM) on $\\mathbb{R} \\times S^1$ with
respect to circumference $L$ of $S^1$ in the presence of $Z(N)$-preserving
twist. The twist can be considered as analogous to Twisted Eguchi-Kawai r
eduction in lattice gauge theory. We study static correlation length and f
ind that it exhibits a peak at finite value of $\\rho \\equiv N L$\, the s
hape of which shows no dependence on $N$ if considered as a function of $\
\rho$. The peak separates two regions: $\\rho \\rightarrow \\infty$ where
static correlation length matches zero temperature value with periodic bou
ndary conditions and $\\rho \\rightarrow 0$ where it significantly decreas
es. Without twist we find a signature for large $N$ finite-temperature tra
nsition where correlation length demonstrates a peak enhancing with $N$. U
sing Gradient flow we study non-perturbative content of the theory and fin
d that this transition sets up at the point where typical size of uniton\,
unstable saddle point of PCM\, becomes comparable to $L$. After imposing
the twist saddle points become stable and effectively $1d$ in the region $
\\rho \\rightarrow 0$\, whereas in the opposite limit they resemble to $2d
$ profile of unitons with periodic boundary conditions. The position of th
e peak in correlation length with twisted boundary conditions seems to coi
ncide with the moment when $2d$ saddle points transform into effectively $
1d$. Our findings suggest possible crossover at finite value of $\\rho$ wh
ich might have impact on continuity conjecture in twisted PCM.\n\nhttps://

Quark Gluon Plasma. These interactions are so large that indicate that the
QGP close to the deconfining transition may no be well approximated by a
gas of quasiparticles. This has highlighted the need to develop new tools
able to describe real-time processes in non-abelian gauge theory plasmas w
ithout quasiparticles. Holography provides such a tool. In this talk I wi

gauge/gravity duality that shed light on how strongly coupled plasma is p

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Igor Shovkovy (Arizona State University)\nChiral sym
metry and its breaking play a profound role in the theory of strong intera
ctions. Over the years\, numerous advances have been made in understanding
the dynamics responsible for chiral symmetry breaking in vacuum and its r
estoration at high temperatures. One of the instructive tools in studying
the underlying physics is a strong background magnetic field. On the one h
and\, such a field acts as a catalyst by helping the symmetry breaking via
the dimensional reduction and an increased density of low-energy states.
On the other\, the confinement is eroded by an enhanced screening from the
low-energy states in the strong magnetic field. The outcome is a subtle i
nterplay between the two competing dynamics that I will attempt to review.
I will also discuss the recent advances in pseudo-relativistic condensed
matter systems\, in which chirality plays an equally important role and a
number of interesting phenomena could be realized in the presence of stron
g magnetic fields.\n\nhttps://agenda.infn.it/event/12163/contributions/124

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Shailesh Chandrasekharan (Duke University)\nHamilton
ian lattice field theories provide an alternate approach to study traditio
nal Lagrangian lattice field theories in the strongly interacting regime.
These formulations are more commonly used in condensed matter physics and
may be more natural in theories at finite densities. They can be formulate
d both in discrete and continuous time. In the continuous time formulation
they can help in reducing the fermion doubling problem. Some new sign pro
blems are also solvable within this approach. In the discrete time formula
tion they are very similar to traditional Lagrangian lattice field theorie
s but with unconventional actions. Unfortunately\, traditional Monte Carlo
methods for Hamiltonian lattice field theories seem to scale rather poorl
y with system size. Here we show that by using ideas of fermion bags we ca
n design algorithms that help speed up these calculations and allow us to
go to large lattices for the first time. Using this approach we compute cr
itical exponents of the 2+1d Gross-Neveu model with Nf=1\, which was impos

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Matti Jarvinen (Ecole Normale Superieure\, Paris)\nL
attice simulations have shown recently that\, contrary to earlier expectat
ions\, the chiral condensate is suppressed with growing magnetic field nea
r the chiral and deconfinement transition temperatures of QCD\, a phenome
non now known as “Inverse Magnetic Catalysis”. V-QCD is a holographic
model for QCD\, which fully includes the backreaction of the quarks to the
gluonic degrees of freedom. I demonstrate that this holographic model rep
roduces the inverse magnetic catalysis\, and provides a good qualitative m
atch with lattice results for the condensate and related observables. In p
articular\, the inverse catalysis is enhanced with increasing number of fl
avors\, in agreement with lattice data. I will also comment on the predict
ions of the model at finite chemical potential and magnetic field.\n\nhttp

gauge theory for two values of temperature T = 1.68T c and 2.24T c on the
lattice. The correlators are measured using energy-momentum tensor operat

correlators including a conserved charge (energy or momentum) are constant
s as is consistent with the energy-momentum conservation. It is also check

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Asobu Suzuki (University of Tsukuba)\n$B_{K}$ is a p
arameter which is related with the Kaon mixing and is one of the targets o
f Lattice QCD.\nNaive calculation of $B_{K}$ with the Wilson fermion is d
ifficult because the chiral symmetry is explicitly broken.\nIn this study
we shall present on our calculation of $B_{K}$ with the Wilson fermion by
applying the gradient flow method both to the gauge and quark fields.\nOur
study is based on a fact that the chiral symmetry is restored if we apply
the gradient flow to the Wilson fermion and take the continuum limit with
out bothering the UV divergence.\nThis property is already observed for pr
actical numerical simulation in Phys. Rev. D 95\, 054502 (2017)\, where th
e chiral Ward-Takahashi relation is effectively restored for the topologic
al susceptibility.\nIn our study we expect the same good property even for
the four fermi operators used for $B_{K}$.\n\nhttps://agenda.infn.it/even

discuss the dependence of chiral condensates and susceptibilities on the m

ransition. The lattice simulations were performed using standard staggered
fermions and the plaquette action with spatial sizes $N_s$ = 16 and 24 a
nd a fixed temporal size $N_t$ = 4. The value of the quark mass was chosen
such \nthat the system undergoes a first order chiral phase transition w
ith zero magnetic field.\nWe find that the quark chiral condensate undergo
es magnetic catalysis in the whole temperature region\, and the first orde
r phase transition becomes stronger as magnetic field increases. The under

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Shreyansh Shankar Dave (Institute of Physics)\nVery
strong magnetic fields can arise in noncentral heavyion collisions at
ultra relativistic energies\, which may not decay quickly in a conductin
g plasma. We carry out relativistic magnetohydrodynamics (RMHD) simulati
ons to study the effects of this magnetic field on the evolution of the pl
asma and on resulting flow fluctuations in the ideal RMHD limit. Our resul
ts show that magnetic field leads to enhancement in elliptic flow\, though
in general effects of magnetic field on elliptic flow are very complex. I
nterestingly\, we find that magnetic field in localized regions can tempor
arily increase in time as evolving plasma energy density fluctuations lead
to reorganization of magnetic flux. This can have important effects on ch
iral magnetic effect. Magnetic field has nontrivial effects on the power
spectrum of flow fluctuations. For very strong magnetic field case one se
es a pattern of evenodd difference in the power spectrum of flow coeffic
ients arising from reflection symmetry about the magnetic field direction
if initial state fluctuations are not dominant. We discuss the situation o
f nontrivial magnetic field configurations arising from collision of defor
med nuclei and show that it can lead to anomalous elliptic flow. Special (
crossed bodybody) configurations of deformed nuclei collision can lead t
o presence of quadrupolar magnetic field which can have very important eff
ects on the rapidity dependence of transverse expansion (similar to beam f
ocusing from quadrupole fields in accelerators). We also show the possibil
ity of the dynamo like effects in the presence of (CFL) superfluid vortex
(which may arise in low energy collisions experiments e.g. FAIR and NICA)
in our RMHD simulations.\n\nhttps://agenda.infn.it/event/12163/contributio

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Davide De Boni (Swansea University)\nWhat is the dyn
amics of heavy quarks and antiquarks in a quark gluon plasma? Can heavy-qu
ark bound states (quarkonia) dissociate? Can they (re)combine?\nThese are
the questions that this paper aims to address by investigating a Lindblad
equation that describes the quantum dynamics of the heavy particles in the
medium.\nThe Lindblad equations for a heavy quark and a heavy quark-antiq
uark pair are derived from the gauge theory after a chain of well defined
approximations. In this exploratory work the attention is restricted to th
e case of an abelian plasma\, but the extension to the non-abelian case is
feasable.\nA one-dimensional simulation of the Lindblad equation for a he
avy quark-antiquark pair is performed to extract information about bound-s
tate dissociation\, recombination and quantum decoherence. All these pheno
mena strongly depend on the imaginary part of the inter-quark potential ap

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Ali Davody (Institute of Theoretical Physics\, Regen
sburg University\, 93040 Regensburg\, Germany)\nWe study the long waveleng
th excitations in rotating QCD fluid coupled\nto an external magnetic fiel
d at finite vector and axial charge densities. We first find the generaliz
ation of the both well-known Chiral Magnetic Wave (CMW) and Chiral Vortica
l Wave (CVW)\, separately. It turns out that at µ5 = 0 and in the absence
of rotation\, there exist two CMWs which propagate in the same and in the
opposite directions of the magnetic field with the same velocities. Howev
er when µ5 6= 0\, one of the CMW modes propagates faster than the other a
nd additionally\, they do not necessarily propagate in the opposite direct
ions. The similar situation happens for the two CVWs in the rotating fluid
at finite axial chemical potential. We then show that in general\, when t
he fluid is either rotating and is coupled to a magnetic field\,\nthe CMW
and the CVW mix with each other and make the Chiral Magnetic-Vortical\nWav
e (CMVW). The resultant coupled waves have generally different velocities
compared to the sum of velocities of the individual waves. We also find an
other excitation in the QCD plasma\; the so-called Chiral Alfv´en Wave (C
AW)\, an analogue of what as recently found in a chiral fluid with single
chirality. We specifically show that in contrast to the latter case\, the
CAWs in QCD fluid may propagate only when both the vector and axial charge
densities are non-vanishing. Furthermore\, while the velocity of CAWs in
a chiral fluid with single chirality depends on the coefficient of a gravi
tational anomaly\, we show that in QCD fluid\, it depends on the coefficie
nts of both chiral and gravitational anomalies.\n\nhttps://agenda.infn.it/

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Kouji Kashiwa (Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Phys
ics\, Kyoto University)\nIn this talk\, I will report recent progress of o
ur study on the confinement-deconfinement transition in QCD from topologic
al view points. We have proposed a new determination of the confinement-de
confinement transition by using the imaginary chemical potential. The imag
inary chemical potential can be interpreted as the Aharonov-Bohm phase and
then an analogy of the topological order suggests that the Roberge-Weiss
endpoint would define the deconfinement temperature. Based on the topologi
cal property\, we can construct a new quantity which describes the confine
ment-deconfinement transition. This quantity is defined as the integral of
the quark number susceptibility along the closed loop of the dimensionles
s imaginary chemical potential.\n\nhttps://agenda.infn.it/event/12163/cont

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Eduardo Follana (Universidad de Zaragoza)\nWe discus
s two methods for simulating systems with a\n"theta-like" term in the acti
on\, and that therefore suffer from a\nsevere sign problem. Both methods a
re based on simulations at\nimaginary values of the "theta-like" parameter
\, where the sign problem\nis absent. We show the results of implementing
the methods in a\nvariety of physical systems\, and we analyze their appli
cability and\nshortcomings. We also present preliminary results on the Sch
winger\nmodel with a theta term\, and we discuss the prospects for simulat
ing\nQCD with a non-zero theta angle.\n\nhttps://agenda.infn.it/event/1216

SUMMARY:Fast Hydrodynamization of Non-conformal Holographic Shockwaves

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Maximilian Attems (University of Barcelona)\nEver si
nce fast hydrodynamization has been observed in heavy ion collisions the u
nderstanding of the early out-of-equilibrium stage of such collisions has
been a topic of intense research. We use the gauge/gravity duality to mode
l the creation of a strongly coupled Quark-Gluon plasma in a non-conformal
gauge theory. This numerical relativity study is the first non-conformal
holographic simulation of a heavy ion collision and reveals the existence
of new relaxation channels due to the presence of non-vanishing bulk visco
sity. We study collisions at different energies in gauge theories with dif
ferent degrees of non-conformality and compare three relaxation times whic
h can occur in different orderings: the hydrodynamization time (when hydro
dynamics becomes applicable)\, the EoSization time (when the average press
ure approaches its equilibrium value) and the condensate relaxation time (
when the expectation value of a scalar operator approaches its equilibrium
value). We find that these processes can occur in several different order
ings. Finally\, I will discuss a new example of the applicability of hydr
odynamics to systems with large gradients. We show that the time evolutio
n and saturation of the spinodal instability (corresponding to black brane
s afflicted by the Gregory-Laflamme instability in the gravity dual) are a
ccurately described by second-order hydrodynamics\, where a set of locally
unstable states with a first-order thermal phase transition settle down t
o a static\, inhomogeneous configuration.\n\nhttps://agenda.infn.it/event/
