dc.description.abstract The main focus of this article is to obtain various transport coefficients for a hot QCD medium that is likely to be produced while colliding two heavy nuclei ultra-relativistically. The technical approach adopted here is the semiclassical transport theory. The away-from-equilibrium linearized transport equation has been set up by employing the Chapman-Enskog technique from the kinetic theory of a many-particle system with a collision term that includes the binary collisions of quarks/antiquarks and gluons. In order to include the effects of a strongly interacting, thermal medium, a quasi-particle description of a realistic hot QCD equation of state has been employed through the equilibrium modeling of the momentum distributions of gluons and quarks with nontrivial dispersion relations while extending the model for finite but small quark chemical potential. The effective coupling for strong interaction has been redefined following the charge renormalization under the scheme of the quasi-particle model. The consolidated effects on transport coefficients are seen to have a significant impact on their temperature dependence. Finally, the relative significances of momentum and heat transfer, as well as the charge diffusion processes in hot QCD, have been investigated by studying the ratios of the respective transport coefficients indicating different physical laws.
