Wigner functions in high energy physics

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Recent developments are (meta)reviewed in the applications of Wigner functions to describe the observed single-particle spectra and two-particle Bose-Einstein (or Hanbury Brown - Twiss) correlations in high energy particle and nuclear physics, with examples from hadron-proton and Pb + Pb collisions at CERN SPS.
