• Discovering Partonic Rescattering in Light Nucleus Collisions 

      Huss, Alexander; Kurkela, Eero Aleksi; Mazeliauskas, Aleksas; Paatelainen, Risto; van der Schee, Wilke; Wiedemann, Urs Achim (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021-05)
      We demonstrate that oxygen-oxygen collisions at the LHC provide unprecedented sensitivity to parton energy loss in a system whose size is comparable to those created in very peripheral heavy-ion collisions. With leading ...
    • Matching the Nonequilibrium Initial Stage of Heavy Ion Collisions to Hydrodynamics with QCD Kinetic Theory 

      Kurkela, Aleksi; Mazeliauskas, Aleksas; Paquet, Jean-Francois; Schlichting, Sören; Teaney, Derek (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-03)
      High-energy nuclear collisions produce a nonequilibrium plasma of quarks and gluons which thermalizes and exhibits hydrodynamic flow. There are currently no practical frameworks to connect the early particle production in ...
    • Nonperturbative analysis of the electroweak phase transition in the two Higgs doublet model 

      Andersen, Jens Oluf; Gorda, Tyler; Helset, Andreas; Niemi, Lauri; Tenkanen, Tuomas V.I.; Tranberg, Anders; Vuorinen, Aleksi; Weir, David J. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018-11)
      We perform a nonperturbative study of the electroweak phase transition (EWPT) in the two Higgs doublet model (2HDM) by deriving a dimensionally reduced high-temperature effective theory for the model, and matching to known ...
    • Soft Interactions in Cold Quark Matter 

      Gorda, Tyler; Kurkela, Eero Aleksi; Paatelainen, Risto; Säppi, Saga; Vuorinen, Aleksi (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021-10)
      Accurate knowledge of the thermodynamic properties of zero-temperature, high-density quark matter plays an integral role in attempts to constrain the behavior of the dense QCD matter found inside neutron-star cores, ...
