Abstract

We perform quantum calculations of fluctuations of the electromagnetic fields in AA collisions at RHIC and LHC energies. The analysis is based on the fluctuation–dissipation theorem. We find that in the quantum picture the field fluctuations are very small. They turn out to be much smaller than the predictions of the classical Monte Carlo simulation with the Woods–Saxon nuclear density.
