A simple power-law growth of charged-particle multiplicities near midrap-idity in central Au+Au collisions at √ sNN = 56 and 130 GeV, recently measured at RHIC, is derived. We give predictions for the central particle densities up to √ sNN = 1800 GeV. A strong growth of the Au+Au densities above those for p(p) − p collisions is predicted. Charged-particle… (More)
