Abstract

Hadron production in soft hadronic collisions is successfully described by a longitudinal excitation and subsequent decay of color flux tubes. We consider the dynamics of interacting unstable strings as a generalization designed forhA andAA interactions at ultrarelativistic energies. The constituent quarks at the ends of the decaying strings and the produced hadrons can interact with the surrounding matter. The effect of secondary interactions in molecular dynamics calculations forAA collisions at CERN energies (200A GeV) can be seen in an enhancement of transverse energy, particle production and the mean transverse momenta. The results agree very well with the experimental measurements at ultrarelativistic beam energies inpp, hA and the recentAA collisions.
