Perfect Fluid (s)QGP Core • Ideal hydro description of the QGP phase • Necessary to gain integrated v2 2. Dissipative Hadronic Corona • Boltzmann description of the hadron phase • Necessary to gain enough radial flow • Necessary to fix particle ratio dynamically 3. Glauber Type Initial Condition • Diffuseness of initial geometry A Lack of each pillar leads to discrepancy! pT Spectra for identified hadrons from QGP Hydro+Hadronic Cascade dN/dy and dN/dpT are o.k. by hydro+cascade. Caveat: Other components such as recombination and fragmentation should appear in the intermediate-high pT regions. Discussions: Hadronic Dissipation • Hybrid Model: QGP Fluid + Hadronic Gas + Glauber I.C. ComparisonTry to draw • Hydro Model: information on hadron gas QGP Fluid + Hadronic Fluid + Glauber I.C. Key technique in hydro: •Partial chemical equilibrium in hadron phase •Particle ratio fixed at Tch Chemical equilibrium changes dynamics. TH and K.Tsuda(’02),TH and M.Gyulassy(’06) Hadronic Dissipation Suppresses Differential Elliptic Flow Difference comes from dissipation only in the hadron phase •Relevant parameter: Gs/t Teaney(’03) •Dissipative effect is not so large due to small expansion rate (1/tau ~ 0.05-0.1 fm-1) Caveat: Chemically frozen hadronic fluid is essential in differential elliptic flow.
