Magnetic field effects on photon emission in intermediate energy heavy-ion collisions
Abstract.Photon production cross section in heavy-ion collisions is estimated by employing the elementary process of proton-neutron bremsstrahlung in a Boltzmann-Uehling-Uhlenbeck model. With taking
A systematic study of magnetic field in Relativistic Heavy-ion Collisions in the RHIC and LHC energy regions
The features of magnetic field in relativistic heavy-ion collisions are systematically studied by using a modified magnetic field model in this paper. The features of magnetic field distributions in

A pedagogical review of various properties of the electromagnetic fields, the anomalous transport phenomena, and their experimental signatures in heavy-ion collisions is given.
Effect of Giant Resonances on Fluctuations of Electromagnetic Fields in Heavy Ion Collisions
We perform quantum calculations of fluctuations of the electromagnetic fields in AA collisions at RHIC and LHC energies. Calculations are performed with the help of the fluctuation–dissipation
Mapping the electromagnetic fields of heavy-ion collisions with the Breit-Wheeler process
Ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions are expected to produce the strongest electromagnetic fields in the known Universe. These highly-Lorentz contracted fields can manifest themselves as linearly
Thermal photons from gluon fusion with magnetic fields
We compute the production of thermal photons in relativistic heavy-ion collisions by gluon fusion in the presence of an intense magnetic field, and during the early stages of the reaction. This
The respond of the electric and magnetic fields of quark gluon plasma in heavy ion collisions
In this work, we investigate the electromagnetic respond of the quark gluon plasma during the motion of a resistive fluid in the presence of coupled transverse electric and magnetic fields. We


Charge separation effect in relativistic heavy ion collisions
In this paper, we discuss alternative means of measuring the possible presence of local parity violation in relativistic heavy ion collisions. We focus on the phenomenon of charge separation and
Estimate of the magnetic field strength in heavy-ion collisions
Magnetic fields created in the noncentral heavy-ion collision are studied within a microscopic transport model, namely the Ultrarelativistic Quantum Molecular Dynamics model (UrQMD). Simulations were
Charge fluctuations from the chiral magnetic effect in nuclear collisions
We derive a nonlocal effective Lagrangian for the chiral magnetic effect. An electric field is generated by winding number fluctuations of the nonabelian gauge field in the presence of a strong
Synchrotron radiation by fast fermions in heavy-ion collisions
We study the synchrotron radiation of gluons by fast quarks in strong magnetic field produced by colliding relativistic heavy ions. We argue that due to high electric conductivity of plasma, the
Observation of charge-dependent azimuthal correlations and possible local strong parity violation in heavy-ion collisions
Parity (P)-odd domains, corresponding to nontrivial topological solutions of the QCD vacuum, might be created during relativistic heavy-ion collisions. These domains are predicted to lead to charge
Remarks on possible local parity violation in heavy ion collisions
In this Rapid Communication we discuss some observations concerning the possible local parity violation in heavy ion collisions recently announced by the STAR Collaboration. Our results can be
Effects of momentum conservation and flow on angular correlations observed in experiments at the BNL Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider
Correlations of azimuthal angles observed at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider have gained great attention due to the prospect of identifying fluctuations of parity-odd regions in the field sector
Triangularity and Dipole Asymmetry in Heavy Ion Collisions
We introduce a cumulant expansion to parametrize possible initial conditions in relativistic heavy ion collisions. We show that the cumulant expansion converges and that it can systematically
