Abstract:The Interacting Gluon Model (IGM) is a tool designed to study energy flow, especially stopping and leading particle spectra, in high energy hadronic collisions. In this model, valence quarks fly through and the gluon clouds of the hadrons interact strongly both in the soft and in the semihard regime. Developing this picture we arrive at a simple description of energy loss, given in terms of few parameters, which accounts for a wide variety of experimental data. This text is a survey of our main results and pre… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
