Soft to Hard Probes: From RHIC to LHC

Measurements of inclusive particle production in p+p and heavy ion collisions at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) show exciting new experimental features. These measurements, via the large energy deposited and the large number of particles produced, show evidence of a dense, opaque, low-viscosity, pre-hadronic state -the Quark Gluon Plasma. I will discuss the implications of these results and the motivation they provide for further studies at the Large Hadron Collider. Erkcan Ozcan, University College London
