Sifting through the remnants of heavy-ion collisions for observables sensitive to the nuclear equation of state Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Heavy-ion collisions provide an important probe of the nuclear equation of state. However, the dependence of different observables on the underlying interaction is not always clearly defined. A multidimensional analysis technique has been used to discriminate the observables sensitive to the asymmetry energy based on the results from Constrained Molecular Dynamics and a Stochastic Mean Field model. This multidimensional technique can be used to enhance our analysis of experimental observables and, thus, improve our ability to constrain the nuclear equation of state. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.
