About this book

This exhaustive survey is the result of a four year effort by many leading researchers in the field to produce both a readable introduction and a yardstick for the many upcoming experiments using heavy ion collisions to examine the properties of nuclear matter.

The books falls naturally into five large parts, first examining the bulk properties of strongly interacting matter, including its equation of state and phase structure. Part II discusses elementary hadronic excitations of nuclear matter, Part III addresses the concepts and models regarding the space-time dynamics of nuclear collision experiments, Part IV collects the observables from past and current high-energy heavy-ion facilities in the context of the theoretical predictions specific to compressed baryonic matter. Part V finally gives a brief description of the experimental concepts.

The book explicitly addresses everyone working or planning to enter the field of high-energy nuclear physics.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The Compressed Baryonic Matter (CBM) Physics Book is based on an impressive number of high-quality contributions authored by leading scientists in the field. These contributions represent forefront research on diverse aspects of strongly interacting matter. While covering the topic from a broad perspective, the overall coherence of the material is still maintained. … Summaries of each part highlight the main points with topical foci that may serve as quick reference.” (T. C. Mohan, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1221, 2011)
