We discuss the shortcomings of a formula that has been used in the literature to compute the number of photons emitted by a hot or dense system during a finite time, and show that the transient effects it predicts for the photon rate are unphys ical. Electromagnetic radiation has long been thought to be a good pr be of the early stages of heavy ion collisions [1]. In recent years, a new “re al-time” approach has been proposed in order to compute out-of-equilibrium effects fo r photon production… CONTINUE READING
