Net baryon density in Au+Au collisions at the relativistic heavy ion collider.


Journal Article

We calculate the net-baryon rapidity distribution in Au+Au collisions at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) in the framework of the parton cascade model (PCM). Parton rescattering and fragmentation leads to a substantial increase in the net-baryon density at midrapidity over the density produced by initial primary parton-parton scatterings. The PCM is able to describe the measured net-baryon density at RHIC.
