Event-by-event fluctuations

Published Web Location
No data is associated with this publication.

The physics of event by event fluctuations in heavy ion collisions is discussed. It is argued that fluctuations are indeed a new tool to investigate the properties of the matter created in these conditions. An example is given to show how charge fluctuations can be utilized to detect the presence of a quark gluon plasma. It is indicated that the measurement of momentum fluctuations can give an idea about the heat capacity of the systems.
