We solve analytically the ellipsoidally expanding fireball hydrodynamics with source terms in the momentum and energy equations, using the non-relativistic approximation. We find that energy transport for high-ptjets of gluons to the medium leads to a transient, exponential inflation of the fireballs created in high energy heavy ion collisions. In this transient, inflatory period, the slopes of the single particle spectra are exponentially increasing, while the HBT radius parameters are… Expand
