Abstract

Collisions of two nuclei at ultra-relativistic energy such as in RHIC and/or LHC are expected to lead to a new state of matter, usually referred to as Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP). Although there is a fair amount of controversy about the exact nature of the phase transition from hadrons to QGP, there is little doubt that QGP has been found.
