Title: Holographic heavy ion collisions with baryon charge

Abstract

We numerically simulate collisions of charged shockwaves in Einstein-Maxwell theory in anti-de Sitter space as a toy model of heavy ion collisions with non-zero baryon charge. The stress tensor and the baryon current become well described by charged hydrodynamics at roughly the same time. The effect of the charge density on generic observables is typically no larger than 15%. Finally, we find significant stopping of the baryon charge and compare our results with those in heavy ion collision experiments.
