The quark gluon plasma: Lattice computations put to experimental test
Heavy-ion collisions; lattice quantum chromodynamics; fluctuations; flow; transport; coefficients
I describe how lattice computations are being used to extract experimentally relevant features of the quark gluon plasma. I deal specifically with relaxation times, photon emissivity, strangeness yields, event-by-event fluctuations of conserved quantities and hydrodynamic flow. Finally I give evidence that the plasma is rather liquid-like in some ways.
