Evolution of Partonic and Hadronic Matter in Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collisions

Caption

Figure: Snapshots of the baryon energy density distribution in the PHSD model at the time t = 3 and 6 fm/c for Au+Au collisions and collision energy 11.5 GeV. The energy density scale is given on the right side in GeV/fm3. The solid curves display parton density levels for 0.6 and 0.01 partons/fm3. The arrows show the local velocity of baryonic matter.
