Abstract

We introduce the seminal developments in the theory and experiments of electromagnetic probes for the study of the dynamics of relativistic heavy-ion collisions and quark–gluon plasma.

Keywords

Large Hadron Collider Quark Matter Direct Photon Photon Production Hadronic Matter 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.

Notes

Acknowledgments

This write-up is based on the notes taken by RC and LB from the lectures given by DKS at the QGP Winter School 2008  at Jaipur. We thank the organizers for their warm hospitality. The work discussed here has benefited from discussions and ollaborations with colleagues over many years and from many countries, and we take this opportunity to thank all of them and also to apologize to those whose work may not have found mention in these introductory lectures as this write-up is not intended to be a review.

Finally, we thank the organizers for their patience and for giving us extra time to complete this write-up.
