Confronting LHC data with the statistical hadronization model
The most recent data from the CERN LHC are compared with calculations within the statistical hadronization model. The parameters temperature und baryon chemical potential are fitted to the data. TheExpand

Comparison of Chemical Freeze-Out Criteria in Heavy-Ion Collisions
One of the most remarkable results to emerge from heavy-ion collisions over the past two decades is the striking regularity shown by particle yields at all energies. This has led to several veryExpand

Thermodynamics of two flavor QCD to sixth order in quark chemical potential
We present results of a simulation of two flavor QCD on a 16{sup 3}x4 lattice using p4-improved staggered fermions with bare quark mass m/T=0.4. Derivatives of the thermodynamic grand canonicalExpand

Hadron production in Au - Au collisions at RHIC
Abstract We present an analysis of particle production yields measured in central Au–Au collisions at RHIC in the framework of the statistical thermal model. We demonstrate that the modelExpand

Production of deuterons, tritons, He 3 nuclei, and their antinuclei in pp collisions at s =0.9, 2.76, and 7 TeV
Invariant differential yields of deuterons and antideuterons in pp collisions at s = 0.9, 2.76 and 7 TeV and the yields of tritons, He3 nuclei, and their antinuclei at s = 7 TeV have been measuredExpand

UNIFIED DESCRIPTION OF FREEZE-OUT PARAMETERS IN RELATIVISTIC HEAVY ION COLLISIONS
It is shown that the chemical freeze-out parameters obtained at CERN/SPS, BNL/AGS and GSI/SIS energies all correspond to a unique value of 1 GeV per hadron in the local rest frame of the system,Expand

The thermal model on the verge of the ultimate test: particle production in Pb–Pb collisions at the LHC
We investigate the production of hadrons in nuclear collisions within the framework of the thermal (or statistical hadronization) model. We discuss the light-quark hadrons as well as charmonium andExpand

Production rate of hard thermal photons and screening of quark mass singularity
AbstractThe emission of hard real photons from a quark-gluon plasma at high temperatures is studied. At lowest order the QCD processes for quark-antiquark annihilation $$(q\bar q \to \gamma g)$$ andExpand

Statistical hadronization of charm in heavy ion collisions at SPS, RHIC and LHC
Abstract We study the production of charmonia and charmed hadrons in nucleus–nucleus collisions at SPS, RHIC, and LHC energies within the framework of the statistical hadronization model. ResultsExpand
