Abstract

The investigation of hot and dense nuclear matter in ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions in general1, 2, 3, and the search for a deconfinement phase transition from hadronic to quark matter in particular4, 5, 6, 7, is one of the currently fastest moving research fields of nuclear physics. Hadron abundances and ratios have been suggested as possible signatures for exotic states and phase transitions in dense nuclear matter. In addition they have been applied to study the degree of chemical equilibration in a relativistic heavy-ion reaction. Bulk properties like temperatures, entropies and chemical potentials of highly excited hadronic matter have been extracted assuming thermal and chemical equilibrium8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14.
