Bimodalities : a survey of experimental data and models

Olivier Lopez, Marie-France Rivet

Published 2006-11-10Version 1

Bimodal distributions of some chosen variables measured in nuclear collisions were recently proposed as a non ambiguous signature of a first order phase transition in nuclei. This section presents a compilation of both theoretical and experimental studies on bimodalities performed so far, in relation with the liquid-gas phase transition in nuclear matter.
