The charged-particle multiplicities produced in inelastic interactions of16O ions at 3.7 and 60A GeV with emulsion nuclei are investigated and compared with theoretical predictions. Results from the interaction with CNO and AgBr target nuclei are analysed in terms of negative binomial (NB) distribution. Data from other nucleus-emulsion collision experiments have been used to fit an empirically proposed relationship for the average value of total charged multiplicity as a function of the geometrically determined number of interacting nucleons.
