Departure from the hadronic scenario at CERN SPS

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A review of results from heavy ion experiments at CERN SPS is presented, with an emphasis on the data from Pb induced interactions. Special focus is put on the most significant surprises: anomalous J/{Psi} suppression, change in the spectral shapes of e{sup +}e{sup {minus}} mass distributions in the vector meson domain, and enhanced strange hadron production. Implications of these findings for understanding collision dynamics and, in particular, their role in the search for the new phase of matter, are discussed.
