Collective behaviour has been observed in hadronic measurements of high multiplicity proton+lead collisions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), as well as in (proton, deuteron, helium-3)+gold collisions at the Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collider (RHIC). To better understand the evolution dynamics and the properties of the matter created in these small systems, a systematic study of the soft hadronic observables together with electromagnetic radiation from these collisions is performed, using a… 

Small System Collectivity in Relativistic Hadronic and Nuclear Collisions

The bulk motion of nuclear matter at the ultrahigh temperatures created in heavy ion collisions at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider and the Large Hadron Collider is well described in terms of

Anisotropic flow of photons in relativistic heavy ion collisions

Electromagnetic radiations are one of the potential probes to study the initial state of the hot and dense quark-gluon plasma (QGP) produced during the collision of heavy nuclei at relativistic

Recent results from small collision systems at RHIC and LHC indicate that many of the signatures of collective behavior observed in AA collisions are also present in small systems in

Running the gamut of high energy nuclear collisions

We present calculations of bulk properties and multiparticle correlations in a large variety of collision systems within a hybrid formalism consisting of IP-Glasma initial conditions, MUSIC viscous

Recent developments aimed at understanding whether, and if so how, systems that produce relatively few particles and are only one to a few times the size of a proton, can behave like fluids are described.

Influence of electromagnetic fields in proton-nucleus collisions at relativistic energy

We study proton-gold collisions at RHIC energy $\sqrt{s_{NN}}=200$ GeV within the Parton-Hadron-String Dynamics (PHSD) off-shell transport approach, investigating the influence of the intense

Collectivity of heavy mesons in proton-nucleus collisions

Using a model based on the color glass condensate framework and the dilute-dense factorization, we systematically study the azimuthal angular correlations between a heavy flavor meson and a light



Thermal Photon Radiation in High Multiplicity p+Pb Collisions at the Large Hadron Collider.

This work presents the first calculation, in the hydrodynamic framework, of thermal photon radiation from such small collision systems, which can serve as a signature of the existence of a hot quark-gluon plasma during the evolution of these small collision Systems, as well as validate hydrod dynamic behavior in small systems.


Hadron-hadron (h-h) collisions at high energies are investigated in the ultra-relativistic quantum molecular dynamics (UrQMD) approach. This microscopic transport model describes the phenomenology of

The standard model for relativistic heavy-ion collisions and electromagnetic tomography

This thesis focuses on developing a standard theoretical framework to study the bulk dynamics and electromagnetic probes of ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions, which are presently studied

Collective dynamics in high-energy proton-nucleus collisions

We analyze the proton-lead collisions at the CERN Large Hadron Collider energy of sNN=5.02 TeV in the three-stage approach, previously used to successfully describe the relativistic A-A collisions.

In this work it is shown that the use of a hydrodynamical model of heavy-ion collisions which incorporates recent developments, together with updated photon emission rates, greatly improves agreement

Theoretical studies of the production of real thermal photons in relativistic heavy ion collisions at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) are performed. The space-time evolution of the

We perform 3+1D viscous hydrodynamic calculations of proton-lead and lead-lead collisions at top LHC energy. We show that existing data from high-multiplicity p-Pb events can be well described in
