Collinear photon emission from the quark-gluon plasma: the light-cone path integral formulation
PACS: 12.38.-t
We give a simple physical derivation of the photon emission rate from the weakly coupled quark-gluon plasma connected with the collinear processes q\rightarrow \gamma q and q\bar{q}\rightarrow \gamma. The analysis is based on the light-cone path integral approach to the induced radiation. Our results agree with that by Arnold, Moore and Yaffe (AMY) obtained using the real-time thermal perturbation theory. It is demonstrated that the solution of the AMY integral equation is nothing but the time-integrated Green's function of the light-cone path integral approach written in the momentum representation.
