Physics at RHIC (Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider): What do we want to know, and what do we want to measure

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The main features of nuclear collisions that are to be measured at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) are briefly surveyed. The main questions to be addressed in studying such collisions are stated, along with some possible experimental ways of addressing these questions. The features of relativistic heavy ion collisions discussed are: macroscopic size and collective behavior, energy density, thermal equilibrium, initial temperature, chemical equilibrium, color deconfinement, and plasma expansion and hadronization.
