Physics and signatures of the quark-gluon plasma

Journal Article (Review;Journal)

This is a critical review of the various observables that have been proposed to signal the change from dense hadronic matter to a quark-gluon plasma at high temperature or baryon density. I discuss current models of quark-gluon plasma formation in relativistic heavy-ion collisions and analyse the virtues and ambiguities of various signatures.
