Abstract

We describe how the abundance and distribution of hyperon resonances can be used to probe freeze-out conditions. We demonstrate that resonance yields allow us to measure the time scales of chemical and thermal freeze-outs. This should permit a direct differentiation between the explosive, sudden and staged adiabatic freeze-out scenarios. We then discuss the meaning of recent experimental results and suggest further measurements.
