Triple-gluon and triple-quark elastic scatterings and early thermalization

Quark-Gluon-Plasma Thermalization

Abstract.

Three-gluon to three-gluon scatterings lead to rapid thermalization of gluon matter created in central Au-Au collisions at RHIC energies. Thermalization of quark matter is studied from three-quark to three-quark scatterings.
