One of the physics goals of the NA61/SHINE collaboration at the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron is to study the phase diagram of hadronic matter. To this end, a series of heavy ion collision measurements are performed. It is believed that above a certain collision energy and system size a phase transition between hadronic matter and quark-gluon plasma occurs. A number of observables has been developed to determine which of the phases was created at the early stage of the collision. This report…

A Schematic Model of Baryons and Mesons

If we assume that the strong interactions of baryons and mesons are correctly described in terms of the broken "eightfold way", we are tempted to look for some fundamental explanation of the

Parton ladder splitting and the rapidity dependence of transverse momentum spectra in deuteron-gold collisions at the BNL Relativistic Heavy ion Collider

We present a phenomenological approach (EPOS), based on the parton model, but going much beyond by incorporating elastic and inelastic parton ladder splitting. Based on this model, we try to

On the early stage of nucleus-nucleus collisions

A statistical model of the early stage of central nucleus–nucleus (A+A) collisions is developed. We suggest a description of the confined state with several free parameters fitted to a compilation of
