The String Model of Nuclear Scattering: Theoretical Concepts

  • K. Werner
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 333)


The early universe was probably a hot and dense “fireball” of quarks and gluons, before, due to expansion and cooling, hadrons emerged. Presently, there are considerable efforts to create such a “quark-gluon plasma” (QGP) in nucleus-nucleus scattering at ultrarelativistic energies (≫1 GeV per nucleon)1.
