QCD School in Les Houches: Introduction


Hadronic collisions at the LHC and QCD at high density

Centre de Physique des Houches, France - Mar 25 - Apr 4, 2008

Ecole de Physique des Houches
Côte des Chavants
74310 Les Houches

More details on:

Description and Main topics

This school will be mostly directed at PhD students and postdocs, but also to established researchers who want to get acquainted with these aspects of QCD.

  • QCD at high parton density and the nuclear wavefunction at small x

  • Initial conditions in hadronic and nuclear collisions

  • Thermalization, instabilities, and turbulence

  • Kinetic theory

  • Hydrodynamics

  • QCD at finite temperature

  • AdS/CFT and the physics of a strongly coupled quark-gluon plasma

  • Hard probes, jet quenching

  • Correlations and fluctuations

  • Experimental results from RHIC and prospects for the LHC

In addition, a number of more specialized topics will be addressed in the form of seminars.
