Does $\eta/s$ depend on the EoS?
Pasi Huovinen (Institute of Physics Belgrade)
Extracting the shear viscosity of
quark-gluon plasma from experimental data has been one of the major goals
of heavy-ion physics, leading to very low values of 1-$2/4\pi$. Most of
these works have been done using by now outdated EoS parametrizations, and
I'll discuss how and whether the use of a contemporary EoS affects the
extracted EoS in a full-fledged Bayesian analysis. I will also discuss
whether the minimum value of $\eta/s$ depends on how the temperaturedependence
of $\eta/s$ is parametrised.
