  title={Dilepton signals in heavy-ion collisions at the CERN SPS},
  author={Carlos Lourenço},
This paper overviews the main results on dilepton and heavy flavour production in heavy ion collisions, obtained in measurements done at the CERN SPS, over the last few years. The presently available results are very interesting, indicating the production of a new state of matter in central Pb-Pb collisions at SPS energies. However, important questions remain open. New and improved measurements are needed to confirm beyond reasonable doubt the formation of a deconfined state of matter in heavy… CONTINUE READING
