Probing Δ resonance production in Au+Au collisions at 1 GeV/nucleon


Journal Article

We investigate the possibility of creating a new form of highly excited nuclear matter, Δ-matter, in heavy ion collisions at 1 GeV/nucleon. Enough Δ-resonances are produced to show collective effects. Maximum densities for the resonances around 50% ground state density of nuclear matter are reached. We propose two decisive experiments, namely the resonance mass shift (nucleon-pion correlations) and the Δ-flow, to investigate collective properties of the Δ resonance in relativistic heavy ion collisions. © 1994.
