Scenario of instabilities driven equilibration of the quark-gluon plasma

  • St. Mrówczyński
QNP 2006

Abstract.

Due to anisotropic momentum distribution the parton system produced at the early stage of relativistic heavy-ion collisions is unstable with respect to the magnetic plasma modes. The instabilities isotropize the system and thus speed up the process of its equilibration. The scenario of instabilities-driven isotropization is reviewed.
