How to work with RHIC (Really Highly Interesting Collider)

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Some issues pertinent to the design of collider rings for relativistic heavy ions are presented. Experiments at such facilities are felt to offer the best chance for creating in the laboratory a new phase of subatomic matter, the quark-gluon plasma. It appears possible to design a machine with sufficient luminosity, even for the heaviest nuclei in nature, to allow a thorough exploration of the production conditions and decay characteristics of quark-gluon plasma. Specific features of the proposed Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collider (RHIC) at BNL are discussed with an eye toward implications for experiment.
