Hydrodynamic Fluctuations in Heavy Ion Collisions

Juan Torres (CSIC / Universidad Autonoma de Barcelona)

I will describe a model for the thermal conductivity in the vicinity of the QCD critical point, that takes the correct critical exponents. Using the boost invariant Bjorken model, I will study hydrodynamic fluctuations and the effect of thermal conductivity on correlation functions in heavy ion collisions. Finally, I will show the two-particle correlation function that is seen to be significantly influenced by the presence of the critical point.
