Bose-Einstein final state symmetrization for event generators of heavy ion collisions

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The current relativistic heavy ion program at CERN and BNL aims at investigating the equilibration properties of hadronic matter at extreme temperatures and densities where quarks and gluons are expected to be the physically relevant degrees of freedom for particle production processes. The theoretical discussion of these collision systems is complicated by their mesoscopic character. They are not sufficiently small to allow for an analytical description in terms of elementary processes. They are not sufficiently large to take a description in terms of macroscopic observables for granted. Even if simple thermodynamically of hydrodynamically inspired models account for the data, the ... continued below

Description

The current relativistic heavy ion program at CERN and BNL aims at investigating the equilibration properties of hadronic matter at extreme temperatures and densities where quarks and gluons are expected to be the physically relevant degrees of freedom for particle production processes. The theoretical discussion of these collision systems is complicated by their mesoscopic character. They are not sufficiently small to allow for an analytical description in terms of elementary processes. They are not sufficiently large to take a description in terms of macroscopic observables for granted. Even if simple thermodynamically of hydrodynamically inspired models account for the data, the task remains to understand the microscopic origin of their success, and to establish to what extent such an agreement is necessary or accidental. The authors discuss algorithms which allow to calculate identical two-particle correlations from numerical simulations of relativistic heavy ion collisions. A toy model is used to illustrate their properties.
