Description

We give a preliminary estimate of the shear viscosity and the sound attenuation length in a pure SU(3) gluon plasma, using an improved anisotropic gauge action. We use Wilson-flow for anisotropy tuning, shifted boundary conditions for renormalization, and a multilevel algorithm for the measurement of the energy-momentum tensor correlators. We also look at the continuum limit of the momenta of the spectral function by using $N_t=10,12,16$ lattices.
