Abstract. The WA97 experiment has measured the transverse mass $({m_{\mathrm T}})$ spectra for negative hadrons ($\mathrm{h}^-$) and strange particles produced at mid–rapidity in Pb–Pb collisions. The increased statistics of analysed data samples allowed us to perform a study of the spectra of ${\rm K_S^0}$, $\mathrm{\Lambda}$, $\mathrm{\Xi}$, $\mathrm{\Omega}$ and $\mathrm{h}^-$ as a function of the collision centrality. The data, which correspond to the most central 40% of the total inelastic… Expand
Study of the transverse mass spectra of strange particles in Pb–Pb collisions at 158 A GeV/c
The NA57 experiment has collected high statistics, high purity samples of K0S and Λ, Ξ and Ω hyperons produced in Pb–Pb collisions at 158 A GeV/c. In this paper we present a study of the transverseExpand
Hadron resonance probes of QGP
We discuss the indirect and direct role of the short-lived resonances as probes of QGP freeze-out process. The indirect effect is the distortion of stable single particle yields and spectra byExpand
