The origin of transverse flow at the SPS


Journal Article

We study the transverse expansion in central Pb + Pb collisions at the CERN SPS. Strong collective motion of hadrons can be created. This flow is mainly due to meson baryon rescattering. It allows to study the angular distribution of intermediate mass meson baryon interactions. © 1999 Published by Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
