Transverse energy and charged-particle multiplicity at various centralities at RHIC: Statistical model estimates

Quark-Gluon-Plasma Thermalization

Abstract.

The transverse energy and the charged-particle multiplicity at midrapidity are evaluated in a single-freeze-out model for different centrality bins at RHIC at \( \sqrt{{s_{NN}}}\) = 130 and 200GeV. The predictions of the model are done at the freeze-out parameters determined earlier from measured particle yields and pT spectra. The results agree qualitatively well with the experimental data.
