I study the enhancement of the photon production rate from gluon fusion processes, with and without thermal effects, in semicentral heavy ion collisions, where a sizable magnetic field is present.

Many observations have indicated that the fragmentation functions in nucleus-nucleus collisions are softened compared to that in proton-proton collisions. Different theoretical models have been proposed in order to describe the observed phenomena. For a deeper insight into the underlying physics and better constraints for the extracted parameters of the medium formed in nucleus-nucleus...

We calculate the cross section for production of three partons in scattering of (real or virtual) photons on a proton or nucleus target at high energy using the Color Glass Condensate formalism. We investigate the azimuthal angular correlations among the three produced partons and show that they are a sensitive probe of saturation dynamics. We outline how this cross section can be used to...
