Rapidity particle spectra in sudden hadronization of QGP

  title={Rapidity particle spectra in sudden hadronization of QGP},
  author={Jean Letessier and Johann Rafelski},

We show that the remaining internal longitudinal flow of colliding quarks in nuclei offers a natural explanation for the diversity of rapidity spectral shapes observed in Pb--Pb 158AGeV nuclear collisions. Thus QGP sudden hadronization reaction picture is a suitable approach to explain the rapidity spectra of hadrons produced.

Search for QGP and thermal freeze-out of strange hadrons

After reviewing the observables of QGP we perform an analysis of m⊥ spectra of strange hadrons measured as function of centrality in 156 A GeV Pb-Pb interactions. We show that there is a good

Sudden hadronization in relativistic nuclear collisions

A mechanical instability criterion for sudden hadronization of dense matter fireballs formed in 158A GeV Pb-Pb collisions is formulated and it is demonstrated that the required deep quark-gluon-plasma supercooling prior to suddenHadronization has occurred.

Pion and thermal photon spectra as a possible signal for a phase transition.

Within the model, recent data for S+Au at 200[ital A] GeV can only be understood if a scenario with a phase transition (possibly to a quark-gluon plasma) is assumed.

String formation in sheared polymer blends: coalescence, breakup, and finite size effects.

A droplet-string transition in concentrated polymer blends which occurs when the size of the dispersed droplets becomes comparable to the gap width between the shearing surfaces is discovered.
