Title:
Orbital Angular Momentum and Fluid Vorticity in Relativistic Heavy Ion Collisions

Abstract:
This thesis focuses on studying the dynamics of relativistic heavy-ion collisions at intermediate collision energies, whose experiments were presently conducted in the Beam Energy Scan (BES) program at the Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collider (RHIC). Building upon the open-source theoretical framework iEBE-MUSIC, we implement the calculation of the flow vorticity tensor $omega^{munu}$ and its associated coupling terms in the evolution of viscous shear stress tensor and bulk viscous pressure during the hydrodynamic simulations. Using this numerical framework, we make a quantitative analysis of the longitudinal and transverse dynamics of the fireballs created in the heavy-ion collisions with experimental measurements at RHIC. Off-central collisions, coincide with large angular momentum. We explore the evolution of the system's global angular momentum and four types of local flow vorticity during the hydrodynamic evolution.
