Nuclear effects in prompt photon production at the Large Hadron Collider


We present a detailed study of prompt photon production cross section in heavyion collisions in the central rapidity region at energy of √ s = 5.5 TeV, appropriate to LHC experiment. We include the next-to-leading order radiative corrections, O(αemα 2 s), nuclear shadowing and the parton energy loss effects. We find that the nuclear effects reduce the… (More)
