Coarse Graining in Hydrodynamics and Effects of FluctuationsOct 14 2013We address the physical meaning of hydrodynamic approach related with the coarse graining scale in the frame work of variational formulation. We point out that the local thermal equilibrium does not necessarily play a critical role in the description ... More
Navier-Stokes Equation by Stochastic Variational MethodMay 31 2011Aug 24 2011We show for the first time that the stochastic variational method can naturally derive the Navier-Stokes equation starting from the action of ideal fluid. In the frame work of the stochastic variational method, the dynamical variables are extended to ... More
Anisotropy of Low Energy Direct Photons in Relativistic Heavy Ion CollisionsMay 17 2016Jul 19 2016We investigate the behavior of low energy photons radiated by the deceleration processes of two colliding nuclei in relativistic heavy ion collisions using the Wigner function approach for electromagnetic radiation fields. The angular distribution reveals ... More
