Does hydro work at LHC 5 The ALICE experiment suggests that the quark-gluon plasma remains a strongly coupled liquid, even at temperatures that are 30% greater than what was available at RHIC.

Summary-1 Yu.S., Nazarenko, Karpenko: Acta Phys.Polon. B40 1109 (2009) 14 The initial transverse flow in thermal matter as well as its anisotropy are developed at pre-thermal - either partonic, string or classical field (glasma) - stage with even more efficiency than in the case of very early perfect hydrodynamics. Such radial and elliptic flows develop no matter whether a pressure already established. The general reason for them is an essential finiteness of the system in transverse direction. The anisotropy of the flows transforms into asymmetry of the transverse momentum spectra only of (partial) thermalization happens. So, the results, first published in 2006, show that whereas the assumption of (partial) thermalization in relativistic A + A collisions is really crucial to explain soft physics observables, the hypotheses of early thermalization at times less than 1 fm/c is not necessary.
15 Akkelin, Yu.S. PRC 81, 064901 (2010) If some model (effective QCD theory) gives us the energy-momentum tensor at time, one can estimate the flows and energy densities at expected time of thermalization, using hydrodynamic equation with (known) source terms. This phenomenological approach is motivated by Boltzmann equations, accounts for the energy and momentum conservation laws and contains two parameters: supposed time of thermalization and initial relaxation time. where IC:Eqs: Matching of nonthermal initial conditions and hydrodynamic stage

Cooper-Frye prescription (CFp) t z t r CFp gets serious problems: Freeze-out hypersurface contains non-space-like sectors artificial discontinuities appears across Sinyukov (1989), Bugaev (1996), Andrelik et al (1999); cascade models show that particles escape from the system about whole time of its evolution. Hybrid models (hydro+cascade) and the hydro method of continuous emission starts to develop.
Hybrid models: HYDRO + UrQMD ( Bass, Dumitru (2000) ) t z t r The problems: the system just after hadronization is not so dilute to apply hadronic cascade models; hadronization hypersurface contains non-space-like sectors (causality problem: Bugaev, PRL 90, 252301, 2003); The average energy density and pressure of input UrQMD gas should coincide with what the hadro gas has just before switching. At r-periphery of space-like hypsurf. the system is far from l.eq. t HYDRO UrQMD The initial conditions for hadronic cascade models should be based on non-local equilibrium distributions

Continuous Emission Hydrokinetic approach t x F. Grassi, Y. Hama, T. Kodama (1995) The evolution of the single finite system of hadrons cannot be split into the two compo- nents: expansion of the interacting locally equi- librated medium and a free stream of emitted particles, which the system consists of. Such a splitting, accounting only for the momentum- energy conservation law, contradicts the unde- rlying dynamical equations such as a Boltzmann one. Yu.S., Akkelin, Hama: PRL 89, 052301 (2002 )
Yu.S., Akkelin, Hama: PRL 89, 052301 (2002); + Karpenko: PRC 78, 034906 (2008). Hydro-kinetic approach MODEL is based on relaxation time approximation for emission function of relativistic finite expanding system; provides evaluation of emission function based on escape probabilities with account of deviations (even strong) of distribution functions [DF] from local equilibrium; o accounts for conservation laws: back reaction of the particle emission to the hydro-evolution at the particle emission; Complete algorithm includes: solution of equations of ideal hydro; calculation of non-equilibrium DF and emission function in first approximation; solution of equations for ideal hydro with non-zero left-hand-side that accounts for conservation laws for non-equilibrium process of the system which radiated free particles during expansion; Calculation of exact DF and emission function; Evaluation of spectra and correlations.

Equation of state in non-equilibrated zone EoS MeV Pressure and energy density of multi- component Boltzmann gas At hypersurface the hadrons are in chemical equilibrium with some barionic chemical potential which are defind from particle number ratio (conception of chemical freeze-out). Below we account for the evolution of all N densities of hadron species in hydro calculation with decay resonances into expanding fluid, and compute EoS dynamically for each chemical composition of N sorts of hadrons in every hydrodynamic cell in the system during the evolution. Using this method, we do not limit ourselves by chemically frozen or chemically equilibrated evolution, keeping nevertheless thermodynamically consistent scheme.
EoS used in HKM calculations for the top RHIC energy The gray region consists of the set of the points corresponding to the different hadron gas compositions at each occurring during the late nonequilibrium stage of the evolution.
88 System's decoupling and spectra formation Emission function For pion emission is the total collision rate of the pion, carrying momentum p with all the hadrons h in the system in a vicinity of point x. is the space-time density of pion production caused by gradual decays during hydrodynamic evolution of all the suitable resonances H including cascade decays The cross-sections in the hadronic gas are calculated in accordance with UrQMD.
PARAMETERS for the RHIC TOP ENERGY In CGC approach at RHIC energies this energy density corresponds to the value Fitting parameter at In CGC approach at RHIC energies the value is used (T. Lappi, J.Phys. G, 2008) Max initial energy density Initial transverse flows Glauber IC 16.5 GeV/fm 3 0.22 CGC IC 19.5 GeV/fm 3 0.21 Parameter absorbs unknown portion of the prethermal flows, the viscosity effects in the QGP and, in addition, the event-by-event fluctuations of the initial conditions which also lead to an increase of the effective transverse flows in the observed inclusive spectra.

Conclusion for RHIC The HKM allows one to restore the initial conditions and space-time picture of the matter evolution in central Au + Au collisions at the top RHIC energy. The analysis, which is based on a detailed reproduction of the pion and kaon momentum spectra and measured femtoscopic scales, demonstrates that basically the pictures of the matter evolution and particle emission are similar at both Glauber and CGC IC with, however, different initial maximal energy densities: it is about 20% more for the CGC IC. The process of decoupling the fireballs created in Au + Au collision lasts from about 8 to 20 fm/c, more than half the fireballs total lifetime. The temperatures in the regions of the maximal emission are different at the different transverse momenta of emitting pions: T 75–110 MeV for pT = 0.2 GeV/c and T 130–135 MeV for pT = 1.2GeV/c. A comparison of the pion and kaon emissions at the same transverse mass demonstrates the similarity of the positions of emission maxima, which could point out to the reason for an approximate m T -scaling.

essentially non-flat initial energy density distributions (Gaussian, Glauber, CGC); more hard transition EoS, corresponding to cross-over (not first order phase transition!); fairly strong transverse flow at the late stage of the system evolution. It is caused by: developing of flows at very early pre-thermal stage; additional developing of transv. flow due to shear viscosity (Teaney, 2003); effective increase of transv. flow due to initially bumping structure (Grassy, Hama, Kodama – 2008) ; + correct description of evolution and decay of strongly interacting and chemically/thermally non-equilibrated system after hadronisation! Karpenko, Yu.S. PRC 81, 054903 (2010) The following factors allows to describe the space- time scales of emission and Rout/Rside ratio: Akkelin, Hama, Karpenko, Yu.S, PRC 78, 034906 (2008)

Nantes July 15, 2009 108 Role of non-dissipative stage in formation of large Vint at LHC
Conclusion for femtoscopy at LHC The main mechanisms, that were considering as explaning the paradoxical behavior of the interferometry scales, are conformed experimentally by ALICE LHC. In particular, decrease of ratio with growing energy and saturation of the ratio at large energies happens due to a magnification of positive correlations between space and time positions of emitted pions and a developing of pre-thermal collective transverse flows. Some underestimate of overall value of the radii (interferometry volume probably can be solved in HKM by switching to UrQMD at the temperatures 130-140 MeV. Viscosity in QGP should be included in the model. Non-thermal stage at the late times play an important role at LHC. Event by event analysis.

Generalized Cooper-Frye prescription: IF for each momentum p, there is a region of r where the emission function has a sharp maximum with temporal width. The width of the maximum, which is just the relaxation time ( inverse of collision rate), should be smaller than the corresponding temporal homogeneity length of the distribution function: (1% accuracy!!!) Then the momentum spectra can be presented in Cooper-Frye form despite it is, in fact, not sadden freeze-out and the decaying region has a finite temporal width. Also, what is important, such a generalized Cooper-Frye representation is related to freeze-out hypersurface that depends on momentum p and does not necessarily encloses the initially dense matter.

Dnepropetrovsk May 3 2009 NPQCD-2009 121 Conditions for the utilization of the generalized Cooper-Frye prescription i)For each momentum p, there is a region of r where the emission function has a sharp maximum with temporal width. ii) The width of the maximum, which is just the relaxation time ( inverse of collision rate), should be smaller than the corresponding temporal homogeneitylength of the distribution function: 1% accuracy!!! iii) The contribution to the spectra from the residual region of r where the saddle point method is violated does not affect essentially the particle momentum spectrum. Then the momentum spectra can be presented in Cooper-Frye form despite it is, in fact, not sadden freeze-out and the decaying region has a finite temporal width. Also, what is very important, such a generalized Cooper-Frye representation is related to freeze-out hypersurface that depends on momentum p and does not necessarily encloses the initially dense matter. iiii) The escape probabilities for particles to be liberated just from the initial hyper-surface t0 are small almost in the whole spacial region (except peripheral points)
122 Conclusions The CFp might be applied only in a generalized form, accounting for the direct momentum dependence of the freeze-out hypersurface corresponding to the maximum of the emission function at fixed momentum p in an appropriate region of r.
