  author={Gouranga C. Nayak},
We study dilepton production from a thermally equilibrating quark-gluon plasma expected to be formed in ultra relativistic heavy-ion collisions, within the color flux-tube model. We have solved the Boltzmann equation with Non-abelian features explicitly incorporated. Quark and antiquark distribution functions, used to calculate the dilepton emission rate, are defined in an extended phase space of dimension 14, in SU(3). We find enhancement of dileptons with low transverse momentum, and… CONTINUE READING
