We present a fully three-dimensional model providing initial conditions for energy and conserved charge density distributions in heavy ion collisions at RHIC Beam Energy Scan (BES) collision energies [1,2]. The model includes the dynamical deceleration of participating nucleons or valence quarks. It provides a realistic estimation of the initial baryon stopping during the early stage of...

Experimentally locating the QCD critical point is one of the important scientific goals for the relativistic heavy-ion collision program, with potential connections to a plethora of deep questions on the phase diagram of nuclear matter. I will first argue based on simple parametric reasonings that there shall emerge a set of new dynamical degrees of freedom for the system evolving near the...

In this talk, I will give an overview of the recent experimental results from RHIC towards the search for the chiral and vortical effects in p/d+Au, Au+Au and U+U collisions. I will mostly focus on the results from the STAR experiment, RHIC BES program and briefly discuss the plans for the recent Isobar run at RHIC.

We will present lattice QCD results on the chiral crossover temperature of QCD for moderately large baryon chemical potential. Firstly, we will present a precise measurement of the QCD pseudo-critical temperature at zero baryon chemical potential, obtained from several chiral susceptibilities. Then we will present results on the QCD pseudo-critical temperature at non-zero baryon chemical...
