Holography and offcenter collisions of localized shock waves
Abstract
Using numerical holography, we study the collision, at nonzero impact parameter, of bounded, localized distributions of energy density chosen to mimic relativistic heavy ion collisions, in strongly coupled N=4 supersymmetric YangMills theory. Both longitudinal and transverse dynamics in the dual field theory are properly described. Using the gravitational description, we solve 5D Einstein equations with no dimensionality reducing symmetry restrictions to find the asymptotically antide Sitter spacetime geometry. Here, the implications of our results on the understanding of early stages of heavy ion collisions, including the development of transverse radial flow, are discussed.
