Development of a freeze-out surface for 3+1 dimensional hydrodynamics

By Maciej Andrzej Stankiewicz

Abstract

Includes bibliographical references (leaves 65-67).A review of a macroscopic description of heavy ion collisions is presented, with focus on hydrodynamics. The various models are discussed and motivation is provided for using full 3+ 1 dimensional hydrodynamics. Numerical freeze-out is then discussed, and a numerical development of the freeze-out hypersurface is presented. Possible algorithmic extensions are described
