Author(s): Chun-Jian Zhang and Jun XuWith the parameters fitted by the particle multiplicity, the energy density at chemical freeze-out, and the charged particle elliptic flow, we have studied the eff … - High-mass twin stars with a multipolytrope equation of state

Author(s): D. E. Alvarez-Castillo and D. B. BlaschkeWe show that in the three-polytrope model of Hebeler et al. [Astrophys. J. 773, 11 (2013)] for the neutron star equation of state (EoS) at supersatu … - Estimating the charm quark diffusion coefficient and thermalization time from $D$ meson spectra at energies available at the BNL Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider and the CERN Large Hadron Collider

Author(s): Francesco Scardina, Santosh K. Das, Vincenzo Minissale, Salvatore Plumari, and Vincenzo GrecoWe describe the propagation of charm quarks in the quark-gluon plasma (QGP) by means of a Boltzm … - Correlation functions of net-proton multiplicity distributions in Au + Au collisions at energies available at the BNL Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider from a multiphase transport model

Author(s): Yufu Lin, Lizhu Chen, and Zhiming LiFluctuations of conserved quantities are believed to be sensitive observables to probe the signature of the QCD phase transition and critical point. It w … - Consistent optical potential for incident and emitted low-energy $α$ particles. II. $α$ emission in fast-neutron-induced reactions on Zr isotopes

Author(s): V. Avrigeanu and M. AvrigeanuBackground: Challenging questions of the $α$-particle optical-model potential (OMP) are still pointed out by recent high-precision measurements of $α$-induced r … - Spins of complex fragments in binary reactions within a dinuclear system model

Author(s): H. Paşca, Sh. A. Kalandarov, G. G. Adamian, and N. V. AntonenkoThe average angular momenta and widths of the spin distributions of reaction products are calculated within the dinuclear syst …
