Anonymous (not verified) An Initial State with shear and vorticity for non-central heavy ion collisions V.K. Magas FQA, University of Barcelona Recent experimental and theoretical developments indicate that a strong initial angular momentum, which is present in non-central collisions, has to be taken into account for a detailed simulation of the reactions. As a consequence of this large initial angular momentum we observe not only a overall system rotation, but also a strong fluid shear in the initial state, which leads to large flow vorticity and subsequent particle polarization: a significant Λ polarization was detected and analyzed in detail in the RHIC BES program [1].

More than 15 years ago an effective string rope model was proposed [2] to construct nucleus-nucleus collision initial state for realistic 3+1D relativistic fluid dynamical models. This model reflected correctly not only the energy-momentum, but also angular momentum, conservations, initial shear flow and local vorticity [3]. On the other hand, recent developments in parton kinetic and field dominance models provide a rather different initial state configuration, more compact for non-central collisions, see for example [4], what makes us revisit the our initial state model in that direction [5].

Anonymous (not verified) Testing Dark Energy using spectroscopic galaxy surveys: BAO and RSD Hector Gil Marin ICCUB In this talk I will review the state-of-the-art techniques for measuring the expansion of the Universe using massive spectroscopic galaxy surveys datasets, focusing on the Baryon Acoustic Oscillation (BAO) and Redshift Space Distortion (RSD) techniques. I will also present the most relevant results from BOSS and eBOSS surveys, and the forecasts for upcoming surveys Euclid and DESI.
