Heavy quarks thermalization in heavy-ion ultrarelativistic collisions: elastic or radiative?

Abstract : We present a dynamical model of heavy quark evolution in the quark–gluon plasma (QGP) based on the Fokker–Planck equation. We then apply this model to the case of ultrarelativistic nucleus–nucleus collisions performed at RHIC in order to investigate which experimental observables might help to discriminate the fundamental process leading to thermalization.
