Abstract: Parton cascade is a microscopic transport approach for the study of thespace-time evolution of the Quark-Gluon Plasma produced in relativistic heavyion collisions and its experimental manifestations.
In the following, partoncascade calculations on elliptic flow and thermalization will be discussed.Dynamical evolution is shown to be important for the production of ellipticflow including the scaling and the breaking of the scaling of elliptic flow.The degree of thermalization is estimated using both an elastic parton cascadeand a radiative transport model.
A longitudinal to transverse pressure ratio,$P L-P T\approx 0.8$, is shown to be expected in the central cell in centralcollisions.
This provides information on viscous corrections to the idealhydrodynamical approach.
