3+1d quasiparticle anisotropic hydrodynamics for ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions

Triangle Nuclear Theory Colloquium
Michael Strickland (Kent State University)

Anisotropic hydrodynamics is a non-perturbative reorganization of relativistic hydrodynamics that takes into account the large momentum-space anisotropies generated in ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions. As a result, it allows one to extend the regime of applicability of hydrodynamic treatments to situations that can be quite far from isotropic thermal equilibrium. In this talk, I review the basic ideas of the anisotropic hydrodynamics framework and recent progress made in phenomenological applications.
