We investigate the consequences of long range rapidity correlations in the Glasma. Particles produced locally in the transverse plane are correlated by approximately boost invariant flux tubes of… (More)

A consistent treatment of both multiple scattering and small x quantum evolution effects on pair production in high energy pA collisions is feasible in the framework of the Color Glass Condensate… (More)

In this paper, we calculate the cross-section for the photoproduction of quark-antiquark pairs in the peripheral collision of ultra-relativistic nuclei, by treating the color field of the nuclei… (More)

The purpose of this paper is to explain the discrepancies existing in the literature relative to e+e− pair production in peripheral heavy ion collisions at ultra-relativistic energies. A… (More)

In this note, we discuss the derivation of a formula that has been used in the literature in order to compute the number of photons emitted by a hot or dense system during a finite time. Our… (More)

We discuss the shortcomings of a formula that has been used in the literature to compute the number of photons emitted by a hot or dense system during a finite time, and show that the transient… (More)

This writeup is a compilation of the predictions for the fort hcoming Heavy Ion Program at the Large Hadron Collider, as presented at the CER N Theory Institute ’Heavy Ion Collisions at the LHC Last… (More)

In this series of three lectures, we discuss several aspects of high energy scattering among hadrons in Quantum Chromodynamics. The first lecture is devoted to a description of the parton model,… (More)

The Color Glass Condensate (CGC) predicts the form of the nuclear wavefunction in QCD at very small x. Using this, we compute the wavefunction for the collision of two nuclei, infinitesimally in the… (More)

In this paper, we derive a simple sum rule satisfied by the gluon spectral function at finite temperature. This sum rule is useful in order to calculate exactly some integrals that appear frequently… (More)
