Particle ratios in energetic hadron collisions

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    We construct a simple statistical model in order to estimate, for very energetic collisions, the ratios of particles with various quantum numbers produced with center-of-mass momenta less than a few GeV. Two conclusions are that (1) isobar decay can account for a large fraction of the SU(3) violation observed experimentally, and (2) at high transverse momentum the dominance of pions diminishes.
