Samapan Bhadury (IFT UJ)


Intertwined chiral restoration and spin polarization".


The physics of the recently observed spin polarization of hadrons in heavy-ion collisions is still ambiguous and is under intense investigation. The evolution of the medium is governed by QCD. Thus, it is necessary to incorporate the equation of state (EoS) for the hot QCD medium in our theory. This can be achieved by considering an effective model with a spacetime-dependent mass. Hence, we start from the semiclassical expansion of the Wigner function for spin-1/2 particles, whose kinetic equation is obtained from the NJL model. We find the gradient of the effective mass can be interpreted as a source of the spin polarization. This is also consistent with the conservation of total angular momentum. While, under the simple boost-invariant dynamics the effective mass depends only on proper time and consequently decouples from the dynamics of spin, an extension to non-boost invariant expansion, shows a non-trivial connection between the spin polarization and chiral restoration.


The speaker will be on-site, local participants are invited to meet in the seminar room D-2-02.
