  • Research on pQCD Tomography and AdS Holography of strongly coupled Quark Gluon Plasmas
  • The CERN LHC chapter in high energy nuclear physics
  • was openned November 2010 at CERN with a Pb+Pb 2.76 ATeV mini-Bang 2.2 times ''louder'' than measured before in Au+Au 0.20 ATeV at RHIC/BNL! The quark gluon plasma form of matter discovered at RHIC, is heated at LHC to the highest temperature, T ~ 5 trillion deg Kelvin ever studied in the laboratory on "large" 10-12 cm nuclear spacetime scales . BNL RHIC commisioned in 2000 continues to map out the physics of QGP formation and dynamics in the QCD deconfinement transition temperature range T=1-4 trillion deg Kelvin.


    The Columbia University Nuclear Theory group works on the theory of such extremely hot and ultra-dense states of (Quantum Chromodynamic QCD) strongly interacting matter. We predict a wide range of observables to help diagnose the properties of that new form of matter via relativistic nuclear reactions.
