Theoretical Overview of Quark Gluon Plasma

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

4 Scopus citations


The quark gluon plasma created in high energy nuclear collisions has been found to be strongly coupled. Interesting avenues for theoretical studies of this matter are presented along with implications for heavy ion collisions, for neutron stars, and for cosmology.
