Nuclear Fireballs in Heavy Ion Collisions

  • I. Montvay
Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS, volume 2)


The properties of nuclear fireballs produced in energetic heavy ion collisions are considered. Questions concerning hadrochemical equilibrium and possible phase transitions are dealt with in more detail.
