Summary

Structure of the nucleus at high-energy and the very dense nuclear matter is studied in this project. In particular, we look for signatures of saturation phenomena which should limit the growth of the nuclear density at large energies. This work allows us to constrain the initial state of heavy ion and proton-nucleus collisions, which is necessary in order to properly interpret experimental measurements. This project makes also theoretical preparations for a future electron ion collider which will make precision measurements of the
structure of the high-energy nuclei.
