Work done in collaboration with

Van Hees, Ko, Levai, Rapp

Zimanyi 75 Memorial , July 2007 – Budapest (Hungary)

First proceedings on QGP

I looked at…

Before instead

I was working on RMFT

“In the ALCOR model we assume that just before the hadronization the dense matter can be described as a mixture of dressed up, massive quarks andantiquarks. The effetive mass of the gluons at this point is much larger than that of the quarks [9], consequently the gluon fission into quark-antiquark pairs is enhanced and massive gluons disappear from the mixture.”

Use medium and not vacuum

and energy loss takes over above.

A message from the early stage

PHENIX, PRL (07)

Coalescence scaling

Enhancement of v2

- nq - not a mass effect
- Most of flow is partonic

v2 develops t<5fm

Hydro & cascade

x - p correlation neglected

x-p correlation in Greco-Ko-Levai

still small scaling violation

Ok, but this is really too naive… (!?)

already included

Greco-Ko-Levai, PRC68 & 70

(less important at high pT)

high pT no problem …

but at lower pT

is not so drammatic

- Resonances
- Wave function finite width
- Gluons
- ALCOR, TAMU-coalescence : mass suppressed, splitting, quark dressing
- Higher-Fock state, Fries-Muller-Bass, PLB618 (05)

- 4) Energy Conservation
- not large 17% in PRC68, resonances decay & v2
- Ravagli-Rapp arXiv:0705.0021 for v2(KET)

- 5)Entropy Conservation
- 15% like energy – Dynamical coalescence V(r,T)

- 6) Relation to jet-like correlations
- Fries et al.,PRL94 but need of transport description
- 7) Space-momentum correlations affect v2 scaling
- (Pratt-Pal PRC71, Molnar nucl-th/0408044, Greco-Ko nucl-th/0505061 )
- (At LHC they will still be so nice ?!)

Greco-Ko, PRC 70 (03)

About Energy & Entropy …

- On v2 it is mainly a shift in pt ->KET
- v2 pions from rho decay
(Greco-Ko-Levai, PRC68&70)

- Q value effect in a Boltzmann approach

- v2 pions from rho decay
- (Ravagli-Rapp, arXiv:0705.0021 [hep-ph] )

- Entropy- Energy Conservation

- 15% violation, No factor 2 :
- resonances
- mass of the particle
- degeneracies

Greco-Ko-Levai, PRC68

But, the energy is not conserved !

Dynamical coalescence

with interaction effects

can conserve the entropy …

Deeper questions… and difficult answers

- Dynamical coalescence (no sudden f.o. - Molnar-QM05)
- Where is confinement ?
- V(r,T) (beyond sudden approx.) especially for heavy quarks - lQCD
- 3) How to go from thermal to chiral masses?
- Although thermal quark mass does not breal chiral Symmetry and similar magnitude
- of both quantities near Tc may facilitate the formation of hadrons from 2- and
- 3-quark clusters ( Heinz and Levai, PRC57).
- 4) Quasiparticle with spectral function
- quark mass distribution (Zimanyi-Birò-Levai, JPG31 (05) 771)
- -> good p,p specra and ratio

- Take home messages from the light sector
- Hadronization from 2-3 body phase SPACE (pT< 5-6 GeV):
- dense medium decrease vacuum role
- massive quarks close in phase space
- hadrons at pt comes from quarks pt/n (change of soft scale)

- Universal elliptic flow (dynamical quarks “visible”):
- carried by quarks
- enhanced by coalescence

Ok, but can it describe RAA and v2?

Summary

- Coalescence from a bulk consistent with exp. and hydro
- Yields, ratios, D-fluctuations
- RAA, Rcp,V2/nq vs pT

- Beyond naïve coalescence -> better data description
- 3D, resonances, wave function, Fock states, energy conservation

- RAA - v2e anti-correlation for HQ entails:
- presence of Q-q resonances (lQCD)

- Similar RAA & v2 at RHIC- LHC:
- if from RHIC to LHC a new QGP phase is created !

- Consistency of D and J/Y with one underlying distribution ?!
- better insight into coalescence at low pT– V(r,T)

RAA & v2 for D/B mesons at LHC

- D and B via coalescence+ fragmentation!
- coalescence leads to increase both RAA and v2

What happens at higher energy - LHC?

- Uncertainties:
