Strangeness in relativistic heavy ion collisions
Abstract Abundances of strange antibaryons formed in nuclear collisions at above 10 GeV/A are considered as a most accessible diagnostic tool for the study of the possible formation and physicalExpand
Particle production in highly excited matter
Seven years after the first experiments in the new subfield of nuclear physics known as the highly relativistic heavy ion physics, the NATO Advanced Study Institute on [title] was held at Il Ciocco,Expand
ALICE: Physics Performance Report, Volume II
ALICE is a general-purpose heavy-ion experiment designed to study the physics of strongly interacting matter and the quark–gluon plasma in nucleus–nucleus collisions at the LHC. It currently involvesExpand
Strangeness production in the quark gluon plasma
Abstract It is shown that perturbative QCD predicts abundant strange quark production in the plasma created in high energy nuclear collisions. Considering further the strange particle production inExpand
Observation of cold nuclear fusion in condensed matter
When a current is passed through palladium or titanium electrodes immersed in an electrolyte of deuterated water and various metal salts, a small but significant flux of neutrons is detected. FusionExpand
Hadron production and phase changes in relativistic heavy-ion collisions
Abstract.We study soft hadron production in relativistic heavy-ion collisions in a wide range of reaction energy, 4.8 GeV < $ \sqrt{{s_{{\rm NN}}}}$ < 200 GeV, and make predictions about yields ofExpand
Strangeness Production in the Quark-Gluon Plasma
Rates are calculated for the processes gg..-->..ss-bar and uu-bar, dd-bar..-->..ss-bar in highly excited quark-gluon plasma. For temperature T> or =160 MeV the strangeness abundance saturates duringExpand
Enhanced $J/\psi$ production in deconfined quark matter
In high energy heavy ion collisions at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven and the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, each central event will contain multiple pairs of heavy quarks.Expand
Heavy-ion collisions at the LHC-Last call for predictions
This writeup is a compilation of the predictions for the forthcoming Heavy Ion Program at the Large Hadron Collider, as presented at the CERN Theory Institute 'Heavy Ion Collisions at the LHC - LastExpand
