  • The very strong electromagnetic fields present in ultraperipheral relativistic heavy-ion collisions lead to important higher-order effects of the electromagnetic interaction. These multi-photon exchange processes are studied using perturbation theory and the sudden or Glauber approximation. In many important cases, the multi-photon amplitudes factorize into independent single-photon amplitudes. These amplitudes have a common impact parameter vector, which induces correlations between the… CONTINUE READING
