In these lectures I introduce aspects of current theory used to interpret the preliminary data on ultra-relativistic nuclear collisions at RHIC energies in terms of the physical properties of QCD matter at extreme densities. Topics covered include: What are the physics questions at SPS and RHIC?, Geometrical vs Dynamical features of A+A, the interplay of… (More)
