PHQMD Model for the Formation of Nuclear Clusters and Hypernuclei in Heavy Ion Collisions


A new n-body dynamic transport approach, PHQMD (Parton-Hadron-Quantum-Molecular-Dynamics), is used to describe heavy-ion collisions and the formation of clusters and hypernuclei. The first results are presented from using PHQMD to study the rates of production of strange hadrons, nuclear clusters, and hypernuclei in elementary and heavy-ion collisions at NICA energies. The sensitivity of bulk observables toward the hard and soft equations of state in the PHQMD model is investigated.
