From p+p to Pb+Pb Collisions: Wounded Nucleon versus Statistical Models

  title={From p+p to Pb+Pb Collisions: Wounded Nucleon versus Statistical Models},
  author={Marek Gazdzicki},
System size dependence of hadron production properties is discussed within the Wounded Nucleon Model and the Statistical Model in the grand canonical, canonical and micro-canonical formulations. Similarities and differences between predictions of the models related to the treatment of conservation laws are exposed. A need for models which would combine a hydrodynamicallike expansion with conservation laws obeyed in individual collisions is stressed.

Brief History of the Search for Critical Structures in Heavy-ion Collisions
The paper briefly presents history, status, and plans of the search for the critical structures - the onset of fireball, the onset of deconfinement, and the deconfinement critical point - in highExpand


Onset of deconfinement in nucleus-nucleus collisions: Review for pedestrians and experts
Evidence for the energy threshold of creating the quark-gluon plasma in nucleusnucleus collisions, the so-called onset of deconnement, has been found by the energy scan program of the NA49 experimentExpand

In hybrid models, which combine hydrodynamical and transport approaches to describe different stages of heavy-ion collisions, conversion of fluid to individual particles, particlization, is aExpand
Strongly intensive quantities
Analysis of fluctuations of hadron production properties in collisions of relativistic particles profits from use of measurable intensive quantities which are independent of system size variations.Expand
Normalization of strongly intensive quantities
A special normalization is proposed for strongly intensive quantities used in the study of event-by-event fluctuations in high energy collisions. It ensures that these measures are dimensionless andExpand
