1:30 pm:

A theoretical framework for the calculation of transport coefficients of

hadronic matter at finite temperature is presented. The framework is

based on the quasi-particle picture. It allows for an arbitrary number of hadron species with point-like interactions, and allows for both elastic and inelastic collisions. Detailed balance is ensured. The particles have temperature dependent masses arising from mean field or potential effects, which maintains self-consistency between the equation of state and the transport coefficients. An application to the linear sigma model is given.
