Abstract
As a result of multiple minijet production, initial conditions of the QCD plasma formed in ultrarelativistic nuclear collisions may be inhomogeneous, with large fluctuations of the local energy density (hot spots),and turbulent, with a chaotic initial transverse velocity field. Assuming rapid local thermalization, the evolution of such plasmas iscomputed using longitudinal boostinvariant (3+1)dimensional hydrodynamics. We compare the evolution in case that the speed of sound in the plasma is constant to one resulting from an equation of state involving a strong firstorder transition, with a minimum of the velocity ofsound as a function of energy density, We find that azimuthally asymmetric fluctuations and correlations of the transverse energy flow, dE(perpendicular to)/dy d phi, can develop in both cases due to the initial inhomogeneities. Hot spots also enhance significantly highk(perpendicular to) direct photon yields, In the case with a phase transition,the hadronization surface evolves into an unusual foamlike structure. Also in that case, we find that hadronization is considerably delayed relative to the ideal gas case, just as previous studies have found for homogeneous initial conditions. The timedelay signature of a rapid crossover transition region in the QCD equation of state (as observable via meson interferometry) is thus found to be remarkably robust to uncertainties in the initial conditions in heavyion reactions.
