29th Johns Hopkins Workshop on current problems in particle theory: strong matter in the heavens

JHW2005 - (other jhw conferences)
1-3 August
Budapest, Hungary
There were important developments in the physics of heavy ions during the past few years. Both developments in the theory, notably, advances in non-perturbative Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD)and in experiments, results from the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), now suggest very strongly that there exists a new phase of matter: the quark-gluon plasma. This fact is of tremendous importance both in our understanding of high energy nuclear phenomena on earth and also, it changes our thinking about compact heavy objects in the sky, such as neutron stars, black holes, etc. The talks given at the workshop explored various aspects of these developments both from the point of view of experimentalists as well as astrophysicists and cosmologists.
