The search for the critical point of the QCD phase diagram will be the main focus of the Beam Energy Scan program (BES) II of the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at the Brookhaven National Lab., where collisions of gold nuclei will be measured at lower center of mass energies, in the range between 10 to 20 GeV/A. This lower energy collisions added to measurements of fixed target collisions will provide access to a much higher barionic density region in the QCD phase diagram. Moreover, new experiments such as CBM at FAIR in Germany and NICA in Russia will also probe the high barionic density region of the QCD phase diagram, hence, it is safe to say that the understanding of the QCD phase diagram in this region will be of great importance, to the field of high energy nuclear physics.In this research project, we propose to study several topics related to the hydrodynamical behavior of the Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP) in the presence of high barionic density. In addition to developing the high density scenario in the relativistic hydrodynamical equations, we intend to study the effects to various possible observables, though the implementation of the solutions in a simulation code (MUSIC). Another topic that will be investigated is the evolution of fluctuations of the initial condition (considering thermal, velocity and pressure fluctuations) though the hydrodynamical expansion and what happens in systems out of equilibrium.
