In these lectures I review the foundations and the applications of the statistical hadronization model to elementary and relativistic heavy ion collisions. The role of strangeness production and the general interpretation of results is addressed. 
Statistical Hadronization and Holography
In this paper we consider some issues about the statistical model of the hadronization in a holographic approach. We introduce a Rindler like horizon in the bulk and we understand the string breakingExpand
Hadron yields and the phase diagram of strongly interacting matter
Abstract This paper presents a brief review of the interpretation of measurements of hadron yields in hadronic interactions within the framework of thermal models, over a broad energy range (from SISExpand
Modeling a realistic dynamical model for high energy heavy ion collisions
In this article, we outline the modeling of a realistic dynamical model for comprehensive description of high energy heavy ion collisions. Comparing theoretical calculations and experimental data atExpand
Investigating the QCD phase diagram with hadron multiplicities at NICA
Abstract.We discuss the potential of the experimental programme at NICA to investigate the QCD phase diagram and particularly the position of the critical line at large baryon-chemical potential withExpand
Multi-particle correlations in transverse momenta from statistical clusters
Abstract We evaluate n -particle ( n = 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 ) transverse momentum correlations for pions and kaons following from the decay of statistical clusters. These correlation functions could provideExpand
On the history of multi-particle production in high energy collisions
The 60th birthday of Johann Rafelski was celebrated during the Strangeness in Quark Matter 2011 in Krakow. Johann was born in Krakow and he initiated the series of the SQM conferences. This report,Expand
A Monte-Carlo generator for statistical hadronization in high energy e+e− collisions
We present a Monte-Carlo implementation of the Statistical Hadronization Model in e+e− collisions. The physical scheme is based on the statistical hadronization of massive clusters produced by theExpand
Self-Organized Criticality
We apply the concept of self-organized criticality in statistical physics to the study of multihadron production in high energy collisions.
MCSTHAR++, a Monte Carlo code for the microcanonical hadronization
MCSTHAR++ is a new Monte Carlo code implementing the Statistical Hadronization Model. This model assumes that hadronization proceeds through the microcanonical decay of massive extended clusters.Expand
A comparative analysis of statistical hadron production
We perform a systematic comparison of the statistical model parametrization of hadron abundances observed in high-energy pp, AA and e+e− collisions. The basic aim of the study is to test if theExpand


Concepts of Heavy-Ion Physics
In these lectures I present the key ideas driving the field of relativistic heavy-ion physics and develop some of the theoretical tools needed for the description and interpretation of heavy-ionExpand
Inclusive Spectra and Quantum Stochastic Processes
We try to explain the apparently "thermal" shape of the inclusive transverse momentum spectrum. We conjecture that prior to the collision, parton-parton interactions generate a kind of a stochasticExpand
The thermal production of strange and non-strange hadrons in e+e− collisions
The thermal multihadron production observed in different high energy collisions poses two basic problems. (1) Why do even elementary collisions with comparatively few secondaries (e+e− annihilation)Expand
Centrality dependence of strangeness production in heavy-ion collisions as a geometrical effect of core–corona superposition
Abstract It is shown that data on strange particle production as a function of centrality in Au–Au collisions at s NN = 200 GeV can be explained with a superposition of emission from a hadron gas atExpand
Chemical freeze-out in ultrarelativistic heavy ion collisions at s NN =130 and 200 GeV
A comprehensive and detailed analysis of hadronic abundances measured in Au-Au collisions at RHIC at √S NN = 130 and 200 GeV is presented. The rapidity densities measured in the central rapidityExpand
Strangeness Saturation: Energy- and System-Size Dependence
Relativistic heavy-ion collisions lead to a final state which has a higher degree of strangeness saturation than those of elementary collisions. A systematic analysis of this phenomenon, based on theExpand
Measurements of Phi Meson Production in Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collisions at the BNL Relativistic Heavy ION Collider (RHIC)
We present results for the measurement of phi meson production via its charged kaon decay channel phi -> K(+) K(-) Au + Au collisions at root S(NN) = 62.4, 130, and 200 GeV, and in p + p and d + AuExpand
Quantum Theory of Fields
To say that this is the best book on the quantum theory of fields is no praise, since to my knowledge it is the only book on this subject. But it is a very good and most useful book. The original wasExpand
