Abstract

A primary goal of high-enery heavy ion physics is to create and study the quark-gluon plasma (QGP), a phase of matter in which partonic- instead of hadronic- degrees of freedom describe the system. Several transport, hydrodynamic, and nucleation theories1,2,3,4 suggest that energy densities achieved in central collisions between heavy ions at AGS energies may be sufficient to create the QGP.
