### Towards Collisions of Inhomogeneous Shockwaves in AdS *[Cross-Listing]*

(0 votes over all institutions)

We perform a numerical simulation of the evolution of inhomogeneities with transverse profile in a collision of gravitational shockwaves in asymptotically anti-de Sitter spacetime. This constitutes a step closer towards an accurate holographic description of the thermalization of a strongly coupled plasma, which can model the dynamics of heavy ion collisions. The results indicate that previous calculations of the thermalization time may have been underestimates.
