Longitudinal oscillations in a classical Yang-Mills plasma
- 26 Downloads
An analytical approach to the non linear system describing classical 1D longitudinal oscillations in an SU(2) plasma is proposed. A physical interpretation is given for two distinct “Abelian” and “non-Abelian” phases of the non-linear oscillations. Numerical estimates of meaningful physical quantities are made. Analytical results are extended to the physically more relevant SU(3) case, for which numerical simulations have been also carried out.
