Název anglicky / Title English: Electromagnetic processes at STAR experiment

Osnova / Outline:
Colliding heavy ion beams offer a wide variety of opportunities to probe elemental electromagnetic interactions of photons on another photons or on nuclei. The interactions take place at ultimate energies under a well defined experimental conditions.

The thesis will involve contribution to analysis of ultra-peripheral collisions, the means to achieve the experimental conditions for electromagnetic interactions. Emphasis is given to photonuclear
reactions, studied in coordination with dedicated working group within STAR experiment.

Plán práce:
Říjen/Listopad: General introduction to STAR experiment and data analysis
Listopad/Prosinec: Introduction to specific analysis tools, reproduction of several basic results
Prosinec/Leden: Writing down first parts of the thesis, talk at the winter workshop
Únor/Duben: Running the analysis, evaluating physics impact of the results
Duben/Květen: Writing down the thesis
