Abstract:

We show that the size distributions of fragments created by high energy nuclear collisions are remarkably well reproduced within the framework of a parameter free percolation model. We discuss two possible scenarios to explain this agreement and suggest that percolation could be an universal mechanism to explain the fragmentation of simple fluids. Experiments with atomic clusters would help to confirm this hypothesis.
