Low Pt Physics and Compact Detectors at Rhic and LHC
Once RHIC and LHC become operational they will open up a new window into the nature and properties of matter at the highest energy and baryon densities. The interesting physics that will be encountered is impossible to predict. For this reason it is important that the experimental program study all aspects of the collisions produced by these colliders. It is not feasible to build a single detector which detects, identifies and measures well all the produced particles, thus every planned detector must make choices and compromises.
