Title: Energy deposited by a quark moving in an N=4 super Yang-Mills plasma

Abstract

We evaluate the energy-momentum tensor of a massive quark as it moves through an N=4 SYM quark-gluon plasma at constant velocity. We find that in the near-quark region, where the dynamics is expected to be dominated by dissipative behavior, the energy density may be quantitatively characterized by a transient at velocities above the speed of sound of the plasma.
