The aim of this book is to provide the next generation of young researchers with a broad and reasonably self-contained introduction to the physics of heavy-ion collisions and the quark gluon plasma (QGP), featuring material beyond what is normally found in more basic graduate textbooks.For each of the essential aspects ' QCD thermodynamics and global features of the QGP, nuclear hydrodynamics, electromagnetic probes, Jet and Quarkonium production, Color Glass condensates and the QCD-Gravity connection - the present volume gathers an extensive, pedagogical lecture that surveys both theory and experiment, to the degree available. A particular feature of this volume is that all lectures have been written with the active assistance of selected students present at the course, with the aim to ensure the adequate level and coverage for the intended readership.We will use the NA60 detector and procedures, as used in the running period of year 2002, as a concrete example for illustrating some ... Finally, before physics results can be extracted, a Monte Carlo simulation needs to be made, generating the physics sources ... 1, consisted of a hadron absorber, eight multi- wire proportional chambers (MWPC), four trigger hodoscopes (R1aR4) and an air- core magnet (ACM). ... 1 Schematic representation of the 17m long muon spectrometer.
