The 60th birthday of Johann Rafelski was celebrated during the Strangeness in Quark Matter 2011 in Krakow. Johann was born in Krakow and he initiated the series of the SQM conferences. This report, which briefly presents my personal view on a history of multi-particle production in high energy collisions, is dedicated to Johann.

Multiplicity distributions and fluctuations in proton-proton and heavy-ion collisions
It has been investigated how the multiplicity distributions and fluctuations have been explained in LHC energies and how small-x helps to find information on initial states. Expand
