Abstract:

Since 2010, STAR Collaboration has been investigating the QCD phase structure, especially the search for QCD critical point, with the Beam Energy Scan (BES) program at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) in Brookhaven National Laboratory. Over a wide energy range from 3 GeV to 200 GeV Au+Au collisions, the RHIC BES program has recorded the world’s most precise data.

In this talk, I will present selected results from the first phase of the Beam Energy Scan with focus on collective dynamics and fluctuations in high-energy nuclear collisions. Physics implications of these results and future prospects, especially the QCD phase structure at the high baryon density region, will be discussed.
