New forms of QCD matter discovered at RHIC
Abstract We discuss two special limiting forms of QCD matter which may be produced at RHIC. We conclude from the available empirical evidence that an equilibrated, but strongly coupled quark–gluonExpand

Abstract We summarize recent developments in identifying the ground state of dense baryonic matter and beyond. The topics include deconfinement from baryonic matter to quark matter, a diquarkExpand

Probing the Frontiers of QCD
With the energy scales opened up by RHIC and LHC the age of high-pT physics is upon us. This has created new opportunities and novel mysteries, both of which will be explored in this thesis. TheExpand
Ultrarelativistic heavy ion collisions: the first billion seconds
Abstract I first review the early history of the ultrarelativistic heavy ion program, starting with the 1974 Bear Mountain Workshop, and the 1983 Aurora meeting of the U.S. Nuclear ScienceExpand
Zooming in on the Quark Gluon Plasma
Abstract Over the last thirty years, heavy ion experiments have recorded a wealth of data ranging from collisions of nuclei from S N N = 2  GeV up to the highest energy of 200 GeV as provided by theExpand
Five years of tracking heavy ion collisions at RHIC
Abstract Five years have passed since the first collisions of Au nuclei at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) on Long Island. With nucleon–nucleonExpand

Abstract The reasons which lead one to expect that, at high enough density and (or) high enough temperature, a new form of matter—the quark-gluon plasma-should exist, are reviewed and discussed. ItExpand
