Zapraszamy na seminarium 25.10.2022

Dear All,


we have the pleasure to invite you to the Particle Theory Seminar on Tuesday, October 25 at 12:15, which will be given by


Giorgio Torrieri (Campinas University)




“The hidden gauge symmetry of relativistic dissipative hydrodynamics “


Abstract: The observation, in hadronic collisions, of "ideal fluid" type behavior in systems of a comparatively small number of particles, presents a conceptual puzzle, since the way we usually derive hydrodynamics is via approximating "many" particles as a continuum. I will argue that making sense of this requires re-deriving relativistic hydrodynamics as a "bottom-up" theory, with no reference to microscopic physics except the local emergence of a thermalized system. We attempt to do this using basic statistical mechanics, and find the appearance of a gauge-like redundancy hidden within relativistic dissipative hydrodynamics, arising from the fluctuation-dissipation theorem. This might lead to the apparently counter-intuitive conclusion that in the small viscosity limit it might indeed be that smaller systems could thermalize faster.


The seminar will be on-site in the seminar room D-2-02.
