Abstract
Direct photons are a powerful tool for elucidating the properties of the hot QCD matter in heavy-ion collisions. They are conventionally estimated by taking into account prompt photon contributions in proton-proton collisions and thermal and prompt photon contributions in heavy-ion collisions. However, there could also be other sources of photons such as pre-equilibrium photons. I investigate prompt, pre-equilibrium and thermal photons and their effects on the direct photon $p_T$ spectra at the CERN Large Hadron Collider energies.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and readers, and in "proceeding" format which is more detailed and complete.
