Anomalons, Honey and Glue in Nuclear Collisions

  • M. Gyulassy
Part of the NATO Advanced Science Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 104)


In these lectures, I will cover three rapidly evolving areas of current research in the field of high energy nuclear collisions. Extensive reviews of additional topics can be found in Refs. 1 and 2. The topics covered here address the following questions:
  1. i.

    Do novel nuclear states exist?

  2. ii.

    Do nuclei flow like honey?

  3. iii.

    Can a quark-gluon plasma be produced?
