Description 1 online resource (xv, 652 pages) : illustrations
Contents Total cross sections and diffraction -- Inclusive and exclusive data analysis in LPS, event shape -- Three-particle exclusive final states -- Single-particle inclusive distributions -- Early models -- Fragmentation models -- Correlations and fluctuations, the formalism -- final-state multiplicity -- Experimental results on correlations -- Multiplicity fluctuations and intermittency -- Bose-einstein correlations
Summary This book gives a comprehensive account of the development and present status of the field of soft (i.e. non-perturbative) phenomena encountered in the production of (multi- ) hadronic final states by the collision of various types of particles at high energies. Phenomenological models used to describe the data are in general inspired by Quantum Chromo Dynamics (QCD) and the book repeatedly crosses the border if at all existent between soft (non-perturbative) and hard (perturbative) QCD
