Description

After summarizing basic motivations for considering the heavy quark kinetic equilibration rate in thermal QCD, we discuss recent progress in estimating this quantity from the lattice. In particular, corrections suppressed by O(T/M), relevant particularly for charm quarks and originating from the magnetic part of a coloured Lorentz force, are extracted.
