Momentum Distribution Functions in Quark-Gluon Plasma
Abstract: Based on the constituent quasiparticle model of the quark-gluon plasma (QGP), the Wigner function is presented in the form of a color path integral. The Monte Carlo calculations of the quark and gluon densities, pair correlation functions and the momentum distribution functions for strongly coupled QGP plasma in thermal equilibrium at barion chemical potential equal to zero have been carried out. Analysis of the pair correlation functions points out on arising glueballs and related gluon bound states. Comparison results between the momentum distribution functions and Maxwell-Boltzmann distributions show the significant influence of the interparticle interaction on the high energy asymptotics of the momentum distribution functions resulting in the appearance of quantum “tails”.
