 A Fluid of Quarks and Gluons
The advent of particle colliders, such as the LHC at CERN or RHIC in Brookhaven, allow us to study nuclear matter under extreme conditions. By colliding highly accelerated ions, those machines create the so-called quark--gluon plasma which can tell us more about the fundamental forces of nature, the structure of matter itself, and the early universe.
In this talk, we will learn about colliders and the stunning features of this plasma that emerges from the collision of two "solid' ions, including recent results on proton+proton collisions at the LHC.
