Relativistic heavy ion collisions and the nuclear equation of state

D. Extreme States and Decay Modes in Nuclei
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 279)

Abstract

Central collisions between heavy nuclei in the relativistic regime have been systematically investigated at the Bevalac in Berkeley by a joint GSI-LBL-collaboration during the last years with 4π-detector devices, the LBL-Streamer Chamber and the GSI-Plastic Ball. These investigations have provided strong evidence for the compression of nuclear matter by a factor of up to 4. Moreover they have shown a collective flow of nuclear matter as predicted by hydrodynamical models. Many features of the space-time development of these reactions have been investigated and compared with theoretical predictions. The analysis of recent results give evidence for a rather stiff equation of state in contrast to considerations from astrophysical models for neutron star formation.
