Relaxation time for the alignment between the spin of a finite-mass quark/antiquark and the thermal vorticity in relativistic heavy-ion collisions

19 May 2020 Ayala Alejandro de la Cruz David Hernández L. A. Salinas Jordi

We study the relaxation time required for the alignment between the spin of a finite-mass quark/antiquark and the thermal vorticity, at finite temperature and baryon chemical potential, in the context of relativistic heavy-ion collisions. The relaxation time is computed as the inverse of the total reaction rate that in turn is obtained from the imaginary part of the quark/antiquark self-energy... (read more)
