Abstract

We consider the ratio of particle abundances radiated from quark-gluon plasma above mean thermal energy and point out signigicant differences expected as compared with global particle yields. Two microscopic processes leading to medium to high E abundances are quantitatively considered and the means of determining the plasma baryochemical potential are discussed. Strong anomalies in strange antibaryon spectra are found, characteristic of the formation of quark-gluon plasma.
