Charge particle universal rapidity scaling in and Au + Au collisions at relativistic energies and its partonic origin
The BRAHMS and PHOBOS collaborations recently revisited the limiting fragmentation shown in the charged particle pseudorapidity density distribution in Au + Au collisions at RHIC energies. The PHOBOS


Poincaré covariant particle dynamics. I. Intranuclear cascade model.
To analyze the high energy heavy ion reactions performed at Lawrence Berkeley BEVALAC, Brookhaven AGS, and CERN SPS, a dynamical model that is entirely Poincar\'e covariant is presented that makes possible a relativistic extension of the cascade concept without losing its inherent simplicity.
Dynamical parton distributions of the proton and small-x physics
AbstractThe perturbative properties of parton distributions generated radiatively from a valence-like input at some low resolution scale are discussed with the aim of explaining the physical aspects
Causality and relativistic effects in intranuclear cascade calculations
Two main goals are pursued in this work. The first one is concerned with the relativistic effects in high energy nuclear collisions, when noninvariance of simultaneity is taken into account. It is
Initial state radiation effects onW and jet production
A model for initial state parton showers, previously presented briefly, is here discussed in more detail. Experimentally, the transverse momentum spectrum ofW andZ, and the associated jet activity,
