Experimental signatures of anomaly induced disoriented chiral condensate formation


Journal Article

We discuss characteristic experimental signatures related to the formation of domains of disoriented chiral condensate triggered by the axial anomaly in relativistic heavy-ion collisions. We predict that the enhancement of the fraction of neutral pions compared to all pions depends on the angle of emission with respect to the scattering plane and is concentrated at small transverse momentum and small rapidity in the center-of-mass frame. The anisotropy with respect to the reaction plane is also observable in the inclusive photon distribution.
