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


  • 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.
