We extend a semi-analytical model that includes the finite nuclear thickness to calculate the energy density (cid:15) ( t ) and conserved-charge densities including the net-baryon density n B ( t ) produced at mid-spacetime-rapidity in central Au+Au collisions. Assuming the formation of a quark-gluon plasma with an ideal gas equation of state of either quantum or Boltzmann statistics or with a lattice QCD-based equation of state, we extract the temperature T and chemical potentials µ B , µ Q and…
