I will discuss the basic theory and phenomenology used to describe the physics of heavy ion collisions. This includes the color glass condensate and glasma, viscous fluid dynamics, perturbative methods to describe hard probes and jets, and various aspects of the theory of electromagnetic probes and heavy quarks. This overview cannot be comprehensive but is aimed at introducing the basic concepts.

In this talk we will discuss the recent progresses on the study of phase structure of matter with the QCD degrees of freedom in high-energy nuclear collisions. I will focus on the energy dependence of the measurements of collectivity and high moments from high-energy nuclear collisions.

The standard model of bulk particle production in nucleus-nucleus collisions involves the formation of a transient fluid. I show that generic patterns are expected on this basis alone, and observed in data. I also define the terminology which is commonly used in talks at Quark Matter conferences.

I will make an overview of the theoretical side of the beam-energy scan program in the context of the QCD phase diagram. I will clarify what is established about hot and dense matter of QCD (especially about the chemical-freezeout curve) and what still awaits further investigations including the modern lattice-QCD simulations. I also briefly mention on the initial dynamics of the...

In this lecture I will discuss some of the basic considerations in the study of "hard probes" in nuclear collisions from an experimentalists point of view. The lecture will cover four aspects: What are hard probes and why are we interested in them? How do we detect these probes in experiment? What have we learned about QGP and its effects on hard probes? What are the prospects for QGP...
