Overview of electromagnetic probe production in ultra-relativistic heavy ion collisions

An introductory overview of electromagnetic probe production in ultra-relativistic heavy ion collisions is provided. Experimental evidence supporting the production of thermal photons and dileptons

Exploring theoretical uncertainties in the hydrodynamic description of relativistic heavy-ion collisions

We explore theoretical uncertainties in the hydrodynamic description of relativistic heavy-ion collisions by examining the full non-linear causality conditions and quantifying the second-order

Holographic photon production in heavy ion collisions

A bstractThe thermal-photon emission from strongly coupled gauge theories at finite temperature is calculated using holographic models for QCD in the Veneziano limit (V-QCD). The emission rates are

Electromagnetic Radiation from QCD Matter: Theory Overview

Thermal photons as a sensitive probe of $$\alpha $$-cluster in C + Au collisions at the BNL Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider

Different orientations of $\alpha$-clustered carbon nuclei colliding with heavy ions can result in a large variation in the value of anisotropic flow. Thus, photon flow observables from clustered

Viscous photons in relativistic heavy ion collisions

Theoretical studies of the production of real thermal photons in relativistic heavy ion collisions at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) are performed. The space-time evolution of the

Production of photons in relativistic heavy-ion collisions

In this work it is shown that the use of a hydrodynamical model of heavy-ion collisions which incorporates recent developments, together with updated photon emission rates, greatly improves agreement

The standard model for relativistic heavy-ion collisions and electromagnetic tomography

This thesis focuses on developing a standard theoretical framework to study the bulk dynamics and electromagnetic probes of ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions, which are presently studied

Thermal Photon Radiation in High Multiplicity p+Pb Collisions at the Large Hadron Collider.

This work presents the first calculation, in the hydrodynamic framework, of thermal photon radiation from such small collision systems, which can serve as a signature of the existence of a hot quark-gluon plasma during the evolution of these small collision Systems, as well as validate hydrod dynamic behavior in small systems.

Importance of the Bulk Viscosity of QCD in Ultrarelativistic Heavy-Ion Collisions.

We investigate the consequences of a nonzero bulk viscosity coefficient on the transverse momentum spectra, azimuthal momentum anisotropy, and multiplicity of charged hadrons produced in heavy ion

Electromagnetic radiation from matter under extreme conditions

The production of real and virtual photons in relativistic heavy-ion collisions is studied. Low-pT photons, dominated by hadron gas contributions, are evaluated within a massive Yang-Mills approach,

Jet energy loss, photon production, and photon-hadron correlations at RHIC

Jet energy loss, photon production and photon-hadron correlations are studied together at high transverse momentum in relativistic heavy-ion collisions at RHIC energies. The modification of hard jets

Dilepton Production in Heavy-Ion Collisions

The properties of electromagnetic radiation from hot fireballs as created in ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions are reviewed. We first outline how the medium effects in the electromagnetic
