Q. What is the matter (in the sense

of many body system) in which

“building blocks” play

a fundamental role?

This is the question

which I would like to

address in this lecture.

  • Understanding of QCD matter under extreme conditions (high T and low nB)
    • Confinement, chiral symmetry breaking
    • Relevant to early universe
    • Unique opportunity
  • Understanding of hadrons and nuclei at very high collision energy
    • Universal behavior (color glass condensate)

in heavy ion collisions.

Collective flow is a key to see whether

local thermalization is achieved.

  • After some initial time, space-time evolution of created matter is described by hydrodynamics reasonably well.
  • What happens at first contact? (Or how does the hadron/nucleus look at very high energy?)
  • If we would know the particle/entropy production at first contact, how does the QCD matter under local equilibrium form?
