Description

We calculate explicitly the thermal quark propagator in presence of magnetic field that is relevant for heavy ion collision experiments at RHIC and LHC. Using this propagator, we calculate the momentum dependent polarization tensor and discuss the relevant collective excitations. Using the same, we also evaluate the thermal photon rate of quark matter in presence of magnetic field. We estimate the photon flux for ultra strong magnetic field that will be of relevance for RHIC and LHC.
