The multiplicity of charged particles in the central rapidity region has been measured by the NA57 experiment in Pb-Pb collisions at the CERN SPS at two beam momenta: 158 A GeV/c and 40 A GeV/c. The value of dN(ch)/d eta at the maximum has been determined and its behaviour as a function of centrality has been studied in the centrality range covered by NA57 (about 50% of the inelastic cross section). The multiplicity increase is compatible with a logarithmic dependence on the centre of mass energy. The results are compared with those from other experiments and with the VENUS and RQMD models.

Abstract

The multiplicity of charged particles in the central rapidity region has been measured by the NA57 experiment in Pb-Pb collisions at the CERN SPS at two beam momenta: 158 A GeV/c and 40 A GeV/c. The value of dN(ch)/d eta at the maximum has been determined and its behaviour as a function of centrality has been studied in the centrality range covered by NA57 (about 50% of the inelastic cross section). The multiplicity increase is compatible with a logarithmic dependence on the centre of mass energy. The results are compared with those from other experiments and with the VENUS and RQMD models.
