11 Andrzej Rybicki, Kraków, 6 Feb 2007 Theory

12 Andrzej Rybicki, Kraków, 6 Feb 2007 t = t E Model of peripheral collision: the spectator systems are modelled as two spheres; the pion emission region is reduced to a single point in space; the emission time t E is a free parameter. A.Rybicki, A.Szczurek, nucl-th/ , to appear in PRC, 2007 A.Szczurek, A.Rybicki, A.Górski, nucl-th/ , to appear in J. Phys. G, 2007

14 Andrzej Rybicki, Kraków, 6 Feb 2007 Conclusions The interplay between strong and electromagnetic interactions results in visible distortions of the ratios measured in high energy heavy-ion collisions. These distortions bring new information on the dynamics of the collision.
