Nucleus-Nucleus Collisions at High Energies

  • Martin A. Faessler
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 130)

Abstract

Nucleus-nucleus interactions at high energies (say, above 100 GeV incoming energy) are very complicated. Even the simpler nucleon-nucleon interaction has resisted a quantitative explanation, so far. Why do we investigate very complex reactions if the simpler reactions of the same kind are not understood?
