Redistribution of strangeness between quark-gluon plasma and hadronic gas

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

21 Scopus citations


In a baryon-rich hadronic gas s-quarks, unlike antistrange quarks, can be found in baryonic degrees of freedom. This abundance asymmetry induces an associated asymmetry in the otherwise symmetric quark-gluon plasma section of the fireball volume. The magnitude of this effect is established as a function of thermodynamic variables and experimental consequences are explored.
