The hydrodynamical model is frequently employed to describe multiparticle production processes in hadronic collisions [1]. In particular, it predicts characteristic flowsignatures as “fingerprints” for non-trivial equations of state of hot and dense matter [2]. Such equations of state can occur when the effective potential, obtained by integrating out some degrees of freedom, exhibits features characteristic of a phase transition in thermodynamics [3]. More specifically, if there exist two (or… CONTINUE READING
