Partonic transport description of heavy ion collisions Conference Paper uri icon


  • Transport models that take into account non-equilibrium partonic dynamics of relativistic heavy ion collisions are useful tools for relating the properties of the produced partonic matter to the experimental observables. In this talk, we review results obtained from some of the transport models, particularly the multiphase AMPT transport model, regarding the partonic effects on observables from relativistic heavy ion collisions. Also discussed are recent results from the AMPT model for the dependence of the ratio of parton hexadecupole flow to the square of its elliptic flow on the parton collision number and the separation distribution of pion pairs emitted from a heavy ion collision. 2007 IOP Publishing Ltd.
