What do we learn from strangeness at RHIC?


Journal Article

I discuss strangeness as a tool for studying the reaction and hadronization dynamics of relativistic heavy-ion collisions at RHIC. In particular, I focus on quark-number scaling of elliptic flow as a tool to determine the nature of hadronization as well as to quantify the amount of collective flow the strange quarks carry and discuss the use of (multi-)strange hadron radial flow and interferometry for characterizing the collective expansion and emitting source dimensions of a hadronizing quark-gluon-plasma. © 2005 IOP Publishing Ltd.
