Title: Applications of Accelerated Quantum Dynamics to Hadronic Physics

Abstract: Utilizing the Unruh effect, and the associated temperature, I will present an effective Fermi theory of acceleration-induced interactions. This accelerated quantum dynamics provides a framework for computing a wide class of observables to probe the physics of high acceleration. General expressions for the emission rate, multiplicity, power, spectra, and displacement law of particles undergoing time-dependent acceleration and transitioning into a final state of arbitrary particle number will be presented. As potential applications, I will show how this formalism may have applications to thermal particle production in hadronic collisions and quark gluon plasmas.
