Coalescence of minijet partons with partons from the quark-gluon plasma formed in relativistic heavy ion collisions is suggested as the mechanism for production of hadrons with intermediate transverse momentum. The resulting enhanced antiproton and pion yields at intermediate transverse momenta give a plausible explanation for the observed large antiproton to pion ratio. With further increasing momentum, the ratio is predicted to decrease and approach the small value given by independent…

Large proton and antiproton enhancement with respect to pions has been observed at intermediate transverse momentum p T 2-5 GeV/c in Au+Au collisions at RHIC. To investigate the possible source of

The intermediate pT region (2–5 GeV/c) in central Au+Au collisions at RHIC has a rich physics content. The (anti)proton to pion ratio at the intermediate pT gives us a powerful tool to investigate
