  • Light charged particles emitted at about 90 deg. in the frame of the projectile-like fragment in semiperipheral collisions of {sup 93}Nb+{sup 93}Nb at 38A MeV give evidence for the occurrence, in the same class of events, of two different production mechanisms. This is demonstrated by differences in the kinetic energy spectra and in the isotopic composition of the particles. The emission with a softer kinetic energy spectrum and a low N/Z ratio for the hydrogen isotopes is attributed to an evaporation process. The harder emission, with a much higher N/Z ratio, can be attributed to a midvelocity process consisting ofmore » a nonisotropic emission, on a short time-scale, from the projectile-like fragment.« less

  • The dynamics of partons in ultrarelativistic [sup 197]Au+[sup 197]Au collisions in the future collider experiments at the BNL Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider and the CERN Large Hadron Collider during the first 3 fm/[ital c] is simulated in full six-dimensional phase space within a parton cascade model to compute the entropy production and the space-time-dependent energy densities, temperatures, etc., in the central collision region. The partons' evolution from preequilibrium towards the formation of a thermalized quark-gluon plasma is investigated and compared to the Bjorken scenario. Moreover, an equation of state is extracted together with initial conditions for the further hydrodynamical space-timemore » evolution of the matter. For central [sup 197]Au+[sup 197]Au collisions with [radical][ital s] =200--6300[ital A] GeV the predictions for the energy densities and associated temperatures at [ital t]=3 fm/[ital c] after the first instant of the collisions are [var epsilon]=15--31 GeV/fm[sup 3] and [ital T]=297--343 MeV, respectively. The multiplicity of final pions from the plasma is estimated from the amount of entropy produced, yielding a huge [ital dN][sup ([pi])]/[ital dy][congruent]1900--3400.« less

  • The boundary of a boson system plays an important role in determining the momentum distribution of the bosons. For a boson system with a cylindrical boundary, the momentum distribution is enhanced at high transverse momenta but suppressed at low transverse momenta, relative to a Bose-Einstein distribution. The boundary effects on systems of massless gluons and massive pions are studied. For gluons in a quark-gluon plasma, the presence of the boundary may modify the signals for the quark-gluon plasma. For pions in a pion system in heavy-ion collisions, Coulomb final-state interactions with the nuclear participants in the vicinity of the centralmore » rapidity region further modify the momentum distribution at low transverse momenta. By including both the boundary effect and the Coulomb final-state interactions we are able to account for the behavior of the [pi][sup [minus]] transverse momentum spectrum observed in many heavy-ion experiments, notably at low transverse momenta.« less
