Add to Calendar 12/10/2018 1:00 pm 12/10/2018 America/Chicago Medium and High Energy Physics Seminar: James Nagle "Creating circular, elliptical, and triangular droplets of quark-gluon plasma" DESCRIPTION:

The creation of quark-gluon plasma that flows as a nearly perfect fluid in collisions of heavy nuclei at RHIC and the LHC is now well established. Recently similar experimental signatures have been observed in p+A and even p+p collisions at similar energies. We detail the experimental results from a geometry engineering program with collisions of p+Au, d+Au, and 3He+Au at RHIC. We then walk through a critical analysis of various theoretical interpretations of the experimental data.
