The NA61/SHINE experiment at the CERN SPS pursues a rich program of strong interactions. The main physics goals of this program are the study of properties of the onset of deconfinement and search for the signatures of the critical point of strongly interacting matter by performing the two-dimensional scan in a broad region of energy (beam momentum 13A-158A GeV/c) and system size (p+p, Be+Be, Ar+Sc and Xe+La). Recent NA61/SHINE results on particle spectra and event-by-event fluctuations in p+p…

Isentropic evolution of the matter in heavy-ion collisions and the search for the critical endpoint
We study the isentropic evolution of the matter produced in relativistic heavy-ion collisions for various values of the entropy-per-baryon ratio of interest for the ongoing and future experimental


Recent results from NA61/SHINE
Abstract The NA61/SHINE fixed-target experiment at the CERN SPS studies the onset of deconfinement and searches for the critical point of strongly interacting matter by measuring hadron production as
Energy and system size dependence of chemical freeze-out in relativistic nuclear collisions
We present a detailed study of chemical freeze-out in p-p, C-C, Si-Si, and Pb-Pb collisions at beam momenta of 158A GeV as well as Pb-Pb collisions at beam momenta of 20A, 30A, 40A, and 80A GeV. By
Event-by-Event Fluctuations in Heavy Ion Collisions and the QCD Critical Point
The event-by-event fluctuations of suitably chosen observables in heavy ion collisions at CERN SPS, BNL RHIC, and CERN LHC can tell us about the thermodynamic properties of the hadronic system at
Multiplicity and transverse momentum fluctuations in inelastic proton–proton interactions at the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron
Measurements of multiplicity and transverse momentum fluctuations of charged particles were performed in inelastic p+p interactions at 20, 31, 40, 80, and 158 $$\text{ GeV }\!/\!c$$GeV/c beam
Critical fluctuations of the proton density in A+A collisions at 158A GeV
We look for fluctuations expected for the QCD critical point using an intermittency analysis in the transverse momentum phase space of protons produced around midrapidity in the 12.5 % most central
Critical point of QCD at finite T and mu, lattice results for physical quark masses
A critical point (E) is expected in QCD on the temperature (T) versus baryonic chemical potential (μ) plane. Using a recently proposed lattice method for μ≠0 we study dynamical QCD with nf=2+1
Critical opalescence in baryonic QCD matter.
We show that critical opalescence, a clear signature of second-order phase transition in conventional matter, manifests itself as critical intermittency in QCD matter produced in experiments with
