The various experimental data at AGS, SPS and RHIC energies on hadron particle yields for central heavy ion collisions are investigated by employing a generalized statistical density operator, that allows for a well-defined anisotropic local momentum distribution for each particle species, specified by a common streaming velocity parameter. The individual particle ratios are rather insensitive to a change in this new intensive parameter. This leads to the conclusion that the reproduction of…

Hagedorn states and thermalization
In recent years Hagedorn states have been used to explain the physics close to the critical temperature within a hadron gas. Because of their large decay widths these massive resonances lower η/s to
