Quark and Gluon Degrees of Freedom in High-Energy Heavy Ion Collisions Conference Paper uri icon


  • I discuss some recent progress in our understanding of high energy nuclear collisions. I will focus on two topics which I was lucky to co-pioneer in the recent past. One is recombination of quarks and its interpretation as a signal for deconfinement, the second is electromagnetic radiation from jets passing through a quark gluon plasma.
