Probing Nuclear PDF and Gluon Saturation At The LHC with Forward Direct Photons

In relativistic nuclear collisions some of the important aspects to be addressed are the effects of the nuclear PDF and the gluon saturation. In the LHC the best way to address these questions is by means of pA collisions and in particular through the measurement of direct photon production in the forward direction. In order to achieve this measurement a… CONTINUE READING
