Abstract

Simple, self-similar, analytic solutions of (1 + 1)-dimensional relativistic hydrodynamics are presented, generalizing the Hwa-Bjorken boost-invariant solution to inhomogeneous rapidity distributions. These solutions are generalized also to (1 + 3)-dimensional, cylindrically symmetric firetubes, corresponding to central collisions of heavy ions at relativistic bombarding energies.
