Intermittency in multiparticle production at ultra-relativistic heavy ion collisions

AbstractScaled factorial moments were calculated for multiplicity distributions in the pseudorapidity intervals of secondary particles produced by the interactions of 16O beams at 60 and 200 GeV/n, 32S at 200 GeV/n and protons at 800 GeV/c in nuclear emulsion. The extracted moments exhibit a power-law dependence on the pseudorapidity bin size, which is consistent with intermittent behavior. At a given incident energy, the intermittency strength decreases with the increase in multiplicity.

An analysis of multiplicity dependence on pseudorapidity intervals at high energy collisions

AbstractPseudorapidity-interval dependence of multiplicity distributions of shower particles produced in high energy interactions of protons at 800 GeV, 4He at ≈ 11A GeV, and 28Si at 14.5A GeV in nuclear emulsions have been investigated. The multiplicity distributions and correlated moments are parametrised successfully in terms of a negative binomial distribution (NBD). The heavy-ion data for NBD agree well with the predictions of the multistring Monte Carlo code VENUS.

Liquid-gas coexistence in 208Pb-emulsion interactions at 160A GeV

AbstractThe charge distribution of multifragments of the 208Pb beam at 160A GeV in nuclear emulsion has been fitted with a power-law. The moments of the resulting nuclear charged fragment distribution dis provide strong evidence that nuclear matter possesses critical point observables. The values of the critical exponents (γ, β and τ) extracted from the 208Pb beam are compared with the values for the 197Au beams at 10.6A GeV and 1A GeV. These values are very close to those for a liquid-gas system.

Fluctuations and clustering in relativistic heavy ion interactions

AbstractThe method of scaled factorial moments is used to study the fluctuations in the nuclear fragmentations of 197Au at 10.6 A·GeV by disentangling the peripheral from more central events. Intermittent behavior is found only in the midcentral processes. Clustering size distributions also exhibit power-law behavior. These observations indicate that the nuclear system might have gone through a phase transition.

Hadron production by 150 GeV muons in nuclear emulsion☆

AbstractThis paper reports measurements of the hadrons produced in the inelastic scattering of 150 GeV positive muons in nuclear emulsion. Multiplicity distributions of secondary particles are given and are compared with the results of pion and proton interactions in emulsion at different energies. We find similarities as well as differences between muon and hadron collisions with nuclei.
