Abstract

We study as function of energy strangeness created in relativistic heavy ion collisions. We consider statistical hadronization with chemical freeze-out in both equilibrium and nonequilibrium. We present strangeness per baryon and per entropy in the energy range of SPS and RHIC. A baryon density independent evaluation of the kaon to pion ratio is presented.
