On Heavy Quarks in the Quark-Gluon Plasma and String Theory

15 September in 11:30

Oleg Andreev

I will discuss two issues related to heavy quarks in the strongly coupled quark gluon plasma from the string theory viewpoint. I begin with the expectation value of the Polyakov loop in the deconfined phase or, equivalently, the heavy quark free energy at finite temperature. Then, I continue with the relation between the drag force coefficient and the spatial string tension.

Seminars are held on Fridays in the conference hall of Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics in Chernogolovka, beginning at 11:30.
