Charged particle ratio fluctuation as a signal for quark-gluon plasma

  • Jeon, C Koch
  • Published 2000 in Physical review letters


In this Letter we argue that the event-by-event fluctuations of the ratio of the positively charged and the negatively charged pions provide a signal for a quark-gluon plasma. The fact that quarks carry fractional charges is ultimately responsible for this distinct signal.
