Effect of flow on the caloric curve for finite nuclei

In a finite temperature Thomas-Fermi theory, we construct caloric curves for finite nuclei enclosed in a freeze-out volume a few times the normal nuclear volume, with and without inclusion of flow. Without flow the caloric curve indicates a smooth liquid-gas phase transition, whereas with flow the transition may be very sharp. We discuss these results in the context of two recent experiments, one for a heavy symmetric system (Au+Au at 600A MeV) and the other for a highly asymmetric system (Au+C at 1A GeV) where different behaviors in the caloric curves are seen. 1997 The American Physical Society.
