Finite Size Effects in the Deconfinement Transition
The concepts of quark confinement and asymptotic freedom inherent in models of strongly interacting matter at the sub-hadronic level have lead to a great deal of interest in the associated deconfinement phase transition, i.e. the transition from a gas of Hadrons to a hot plasma of deconfined quarks and gluons. The possibility of obtaining energy densities which are large enough to cause deconfinement in ultra-relativistic heavy ion collisions has acted as one of the main stimuli to interest in such collisions, from both the experimental and theoretical points of view.
