TEMPERATURE AND DENSITY DEPENDENCE OF PROPERTIES OF NUCLEAR MATTER DEDUCED FROM HEAVY ION COLLISIONS Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • Heavy-ion collision experiments are often employed to determine properties of nuclear matter under extreme conditions of temperature and density. This has been the subject of many investigations in recent decades, since understanding the equation of state of hot nuclear matter is very important in the study supernovae, neutron stars and nuclei. We present a short and limited review of the theoretical and experimental status of determining the temperature and density of the disassembling hot nucleus from ratios of the yields of emitted fragments. © 2010 American Institute of Physics.
