Abstract

The early stage of a high multiplicity pp, pA and AA collisions is represented by a nearly quarkless, hot, deconfined pure gluon plasma. According to pure YangMills lattice gauge theory, this hot pure glue matter undergoes, at a high temperature, Tc = 270 MeV, a first-order phase transition into a confined Hagedorn glueball fluid. This new scenario should be characterized by a suppression of high pT photons and dileptons, baryon suppression and enhanced strange meson production. We propose to observe this newly predicted class of events at the Large Hadron Collider and the Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collider.
