Abstract:

We report the first account of a cluster fragmentation study involving high energy cluster-cluster collisions in which all the fragments of each collision occurring in the experiment are mass analyzed on an event by event basis. This allows an unbiased look at the true nature of fragmentation including a statistical analysis in terms of fluctuations in the fragment size distribution.
