Experiments with the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) will begin December 1999. RHIC consists of two superconducting rings capable of accelerating and storing Au beams of 100 GeV/nucleon and proton beams of 250 GeV. Four experiments are being prepared for RHIC; STAR, PHENIX, PHOBOS, and BRAHMS. These detector systems are designed to search for signals of the quark gluon plasma in Au-Au collisions. A spin physics program using polarized protons will also be carried out at RHIC. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    The connection between effective-actions and generalizations of Nambu-Jona-Lasinio models is discussed. We suggest the possibility of creation in the early Universe of stable domains of radius a few kilometers wide. Such domains should appear dark to an external observer. The insulation of the...

    We study the behavior of the pion dispersion relation in a pion medium at finite density and temperature, introducing a chemical potential to describe the finite pion number density. Such description is particularly important during the hadronic phase of a relativistic heavy-ion collision,...
