Abstract

We report a simple analytical solution for the velocity u of the transverse flow of quark-gluon plasma at a hadronization front in Bjorken’s scenario. We establish scaling properties of the transverse flow as a function of the expansion time. We present simple scaling formula for the expansion velocity distribution.
