The experimental multiplicity distributions of relativistic shower particles emitted in forward (\(\theta _{lab} < 90\)) and backward (\(\theta _{lab} \ge 90\)) hemispheres produced in the interactions of \(^{32}S\) projectile with CNO, AgBr and Em are presented and analyzed. The experimental results have been compared with the data generated with the computer code FRITIOF based on Lund Monte Carlo Model. The dependence of \(<N_F>\) and \(<N_B>\) on \(N_h\) has been described by a linear linear relation in which the data is found to exhibit a positive correlation.



We would like to express our thanks to Professor P.L. Jain of SUNY at Buffalo, USA for providing the exposed and developed emulsion plates for the present analysis. The corresponding author of this paper Mir Hashim Rasool acknowledges Dr. Shakil Ahmad for his help in generating events using FRITIOF model.
