    Statistical hadronisation phenomenology

    The analyses of hadron production in the framework of the statistical hadronisation model are reviewed. The analysis of average multiplicities in collisions at relatively low centre-of-mass energy confirms previous findings, namely the universality of hadronisation temperature and of strange to non-strange quark production rate. The study of transverse momentum spectra of identified hadrons allows a further determination of the hadronisation temperature which is found to be compatible with that obtained from fits to average multiplicities.Comment: 5 pages, 4 .eps figures, talk given at Statistical QCD, Bielefeld, August 2001, to appear in the proceeding

    Polarization in relativistic heavy ion collisions: a theoretical perspective

    Full text link
    We review the theoretical framework for the calculation of particle polarization in relativistic heavy ion collisions within the hydrodynamical model. The covariant decomposition of the mean spin vector is presented and open theoretical issues addressed.Comment: 6 pages, talk given at Strangeness in Quark Matter conference, Utrecht, July 10-15 201

    A Monte-Carlo generator for statistical hadronization in high energy e+e- collisions

    Get PDF
    We present a Monte-Carlo implementation of the Statistical Hadronization Model in e+e- collisions. The physical scheme is based on the statistical hadronization of massive clusters produced by the event generator Herwig within the microcanonical ensemble. We present a preliminary comparison of several observables with measurements in e+e- collisions at the Z peak. Although a fine tuning of the model parameters is not carried out, a general good agreement between its predictions and data is found.Comment: 19 pages, 28 figures, 6 tables. v2: added sections on comparison between the Statistical Hadronization Model and the Cluster Model and on the interplay between Herwig cluster splitting algorithm and Statistical Hadronization Model predictions. Fixed typos and references added. Version accepted for publication in EPJ

    Strangeness production in a constituent quark model

    Full text link
    We develop a model to calculate strangeness production in both elementary and heavy ion collisions, within the framework of a statistical approach to hadronisation. Calculations are based on the canonical partition function of the thermal Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model with exact conservation of flavor and color. It turns out that the growth of strange quarks production in heavy ion collisions is due to the initial excess of non-strange matter over antimatter, whereas a suppression occurs for elementary collisions, owing to the constraint of exact quantum charges conservation over small volumes.Comment: 7 pages, 3 figures, Proceedings of the GISELDA Meeting held in Frascati, 14-18 January 200
