Identified Particle Measurements at RHIC: Elucidating Hadronization Mechanisms for Bulk Partonic Matter

  • Paul Sorensen
Article

Summary

Measurements of identified particle momentum spectra at √{<i>sNN</i>} = 200 GeV are reviewed. Emphasis is placed on the azimuthal dependence and the centrality dependence of hadron yields at intermediate transverse momentum (1.5 < <i>pT</i> < 5 GeV/c). The first measurements of the fourth harmonic term (<i>v</i>4) in the azimuthal variation of identified particle yields are shown. The recombination mechanism of hadron formation provides a consistent description of the dependence of these measurements on particle-type.
