Özet

At LHC energies, the Lorentz factor will be 3400 for Pb + Pb collisions, and the electromagnetic interactions will play important roles. The cross sections for the electromagnetic particle productions are very large and cannot be ignored for the lifetimes of the beams and background. In this article, we are going to study some of the electromagnetic processes at the RHIC and the LHC and show the cross section calculations of the electron-positron pair production with the giant dipole resonance of the ions.
