Modeling the space-time evolution of ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions
Abstract: Understanding the different stages of ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions is essential in extracting the properties of the quark-gluon plasma. In this seminar talk I will review our perturbative QCD based model for the initial production of matter which is combined with a hydrodynamical framework for the subsequent space-time evolution. Finally, I will compare the results from the model with experimental data from RHIC and LHC based on which we can constrain the shear viscosity of the QCD matter.

Sound modes and two-stream instability in a relativistic superfluid
Abstract: Relativistic superfluids are most likely present in the interior of compact stars, in nuclear matter and/or quark matter. I will discuss a field-theoretical approach to superfluidity and how it is connected to the usual two-fluid picture developed by Landau for superfluid helium. I will then show some applications of this approach, most notably the two sound modes for all temperatures and the so-called two-stream instability that is known from plasma physics and that may be relevant for compact star phenomenology.
