QCD and Heavy Ions: an overview :  QCD and Heavy Ions: an overview D. Kharzeev BNL XXXIX Rencontres de Moriond, March 28 - April 4 2004 Outline:  Outline QCD of strong color fields: parton saturation and Color Glass Condensate Manifestations of CGC at RHIC: hadron multiplicities high pT suppression at forward rapidity Future tests: RHIC, LHC, eRHIC From CGC to Quark-Gluon Plasma QCD and the classical limit:  QCD and the classical limit QCD = Quark Model + Gauge Invariance For , .i Classical dynamics applies when the action is large: => Need weak coupling and strong fields Asymptotic freedom and the classical limit of QCD:  Asymptotic freedom and the classical limit of QCD Classical limit S>>1 requires weak coupling and strong fields; Large distances: strong fields but large coupling… Is there a place for classical methods? Parton saturation and the classical limit of QCD:  Parton saturation and the classical limit of QCD At small Bjorken x, hard processes develop over .large longitudinal distances All partons contribute coherently => at sufficiently small x and/or .large A strong fields, weak coupling! The phase diagram of high energy QCD:  The phase diagram of high energy QCD … no numbers yet, but they will follow Non-linear effects in the QCD evolution:  Non-linear effects in the QCD evolution QCD evolution equations (DGLAP, BFKL) predict an increase of parton densities at small Bjorken x, in agreement with experiment; at “sufficiently small” x and/or large A non-linear effects must become important (GLR; MQ; JIMWLK; ILM). At large , equations can be written in a closed form - BK (dipole scatterings are assumed to be independent - similar to the mean field approximation in statistical physics) but correlations may be important - see e.g. E.Iancu, A.H.Mueller, hep-ph/0309276; A.H.Mueller, A.I.Shoshi, hep-ph/0402193 CGC and total multiplicities in Au-Au:  CGC and total multiplicities in Au-Au CGC predicts very simple dependence of multiplicity .on atomic number A / Npart: Almost like in “wounded nucleon” and string-based models; Agrees unexpectedly well with “soft + hard” parameterizations (note: total multiplicities are dominated by small transverse momenta => classical dynamics applicable) Slide9:  dNch/dh @ h=0 vs Energy Parton interactions at RHIC .are coherent ! Centrality dependence of hadron multiplicity:  Centrality dependence of hadron multiplicity => Talk by D. Hofman Centrality dependence at different energies:  Centrality dependence at different energies Initial state parton saturation? :  Initial state parton saturation? QM2002: nucl-ex/0212009 l~0.25 from fits to HERA data: xG(x)~x-l Describes energy dependence correctly!

B523 (2001) 79 Au + Au at 130 GeV We need a simpler system such as d + Au in order to understand a complex system Au + Au The results of d+Au are crucial for testing the saturation approach PHOBOS Coll., R.

Schiff, D.T. Son, PLB502(2001)51; 539(2002)46; … From CGC to Quark Gluon Plasma:  From CGC to Quark Gluon Plasma L. McLerran, T. Ludlam, Physics Today, October 2003 Signatures of the Quark Gluon Plasma:  Signatures of the Quark Gluon Plasma O jet quenching suppression of heavy quarkonia collective flow fluctuations and correlations dilepton and photon enhancement particle abundancies exotica: DCC, parity violation, … The discovery of high pT suppression at RHIC:  The discovery of high pT suppression at RHIC => Talk by D. d’Enterria What happens at higher transverse momenta?:  What happens at higher transverse momenta? PHENIX and STAR extend measurements to ~ 10 GeV Centrality Dependence vs pT:  Centrality Dependence vs pT Phobos Phobos Is this the jet quenching in QGP?:  Is this the jet quenching in QGP? Bjorken; Gyulassy, Wang; Baier, Dokshitzer, Mueller, Peigne, Schiff; Wiedemann, Salgado; Vitev, Levai, … Very likely; .but could there be alternative explanations? (2002)lternative DK, Levin, McLerran hep-ph/0210332 Yes, possibly: 1) Small x evolution leads to .the modification of gluon propagators - “anomalous dimension”: 2) Qs is the only relevant dimensionful parameter in the CGC; .thus everything scales in the ratio 3) Since Tthe A-dependence is changed => Npart scaling! D-Au collisions: suppression or enhancement? :  D-Au collisions: suppression or enhancement? RdAu vs pT:  RdAu vs pT Central Au+Au Phobos p+p vs. d+Au:  p+p vs. d+Au Azimuthal correlations are qualitatively consistent Quantitative evaluation will constrain Nuclear kT from initial state multiple scattering Shadowing Models that predict “monojets” due to initial state effects ruled out No “data manipulation” D. Hardtke, STAR Coll. => Talk by F. Wang Conclusion: high pT suppression is a final-state effect:  Conclusion: high pT suppression is a final-state effect Can one prove that it is due to a radiative jet energy loss In the Quark-Gluon Plasma? Quite likely: one possibility is to use the heavy quarks Radiation off heavy quarks is suppressed (“dead cone”) => less quenching On the other hand, D mesons have about the same size as .pions and kaons, and so in the hadron absorption scenario .the suppression should be the same Yu.Dokshitzer, DK ‘01 => Talk by N. Armesto However, the arguments for the CGC-caused ,suppression should hold for sufficiently small x;:  However, the arguments for the CGC-caused ,suppression should hold for sufficiently small x; Does this happen at RHIC? Study the forward rapidity region: Moving to y=+4 from y=0 increases the saturation scale .by factor of three RHIC results: Talks by B. Cole, E. Kistenev, M. Liu, F. Wang Expectations for RdAu at large rapidity:  Expectations for RdAu at large rapidity Agreement on the presence of suppression due to the quantum Small x evolution in the CGC picture: DK, E.

Liu d+Au RCP at forward rapidities:  d+Au RCP at forward rapidities PT [GeV/c] RCP Au-Side RCP shows almost no variation with centrality d-side is interesting: more central is more suppressed L.Barnby, STAR, QM’04 d Au spectra at (not so) forward rapidity:  d Au spectra at (not so) forward rapidity P. Steinberg, PHOBOS, QM’04 Rapidity dependence of RdAu:  Rapidity dependence of RdAu Is this “just shadowing”?:  Is this “just shadowing”? Yes, it is - shadowing is the deviation of nuclear parton distributions from the nucleon’s ones. CGC is a theory of shadowing Conventional parameterizations of shadowing have so far failed in describing the rapidity and centrality dependence of the data (EKS, de Florian, Accardi-Gyulassy,… Some approaches (e.g. HIJING shadowing) describe suppression at y=3, but also predict it at y=0. NB:approaches relating shadowing to diffraction should work Further tests of quantum evolution in the CGC :  Further tests of quantum evolution in the CGC Back-to-back correlations for jets separated by several units of rapidity are very sensitive to the evolution effects A.H.Mueller,H.Navelet and to the presence of CGC DK, E.Levin,L.McLerran, hep-ph/0403271 Open charm, dileptons, photons DK, K.Tuchin, hep-ph/0310.. in the forward region R.Baier,A.H.Mueller,D.Schiff, hep-ph/0403201 Phase diagram of high energy QCD :  Phase diagram of high energy QCD Summary:  Summary High energy heavy ion program allows to study QCD in the domains of high parton density (small x, large A) and high energy density Novel exciting effects have been observed in Au-Au and forward d-Au interactions; they point towards the collective partonic behavior and non-linear dynamics at small x Back-up slides:  Back-up slides Slide41:  d Au Phenix Preliminary Stopped Hadrons!
