Viewing the Chemical Evolution of the QGP, S. Pratt, Dept. of Physics And Astronomy, Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan USA − Identifying the microscopic degrees of freedom of the QGP constitutes one of the principal challenges of Relativistic Heavy Ion Collisions.  In this talk, I will show how to use make a link direct link between long-range correlations, measured by STAR and ALICE, and charge-charge fluctuations measured by lattice gauge theory.  These correlations provide insight into whether quarks move independently in the QGP.  In addition to identifying the degrees of freedom, I will explain how experimental correlations might validate or disprove the canonical understanding of the chemical evolution of a heavy-ion collision.
