[virtual NT/RIKEN seminar] Does eta/s depend on EoS?

by Pasi Huovinen (Institute of Physics Belgrade)




Extracting the shear viscosity of quark-gluon plasma from experimental
   data has been one of the major goals of heavy-ion physics, leading to
   very low values of eta/s = 1-2/4pi. Most of these works have been done
   using by now outdated EoS parametrization, and I'll discuss how and
   whether the use of contemporary EoS affects the extracted EoS in a
   full-fledged Bayesian analysis. I will also discuss whether the minimum
   value of eta/s depends on how the temperature dependence of eta/s is
