# THERMINATOR: THERMal heavy-IoN generATOR

## Description

Abstract THERMINATOR is a Monte Carlo event generator designed for studying of particle production in relativistic heavy-ion collisions performed at such experimental facilities as the SPS, RHIC, or LHC. The program implements thermal models of particle production with single freeze-out. It performs the following tasks: (1) generation of stable particles and unstable resonances at the chosen freeze-out hypersurface with the local phase-space density of particles given by the statistical distribution f... Title of program: THERMINATOR Catalogue Id: ADXL_v1_0 Nature of problem Statistical models have proved to be very useful in the description of soft physics in relativistic heavy-ion collisions [2]. In particular, with a few physical input parameters, such as the temperature, chemical potentials, and velocity of the collective flow, the models reproduce the observed particle abundances [3-15], the transverse-momentum spectra [16], balance functions [17,18], or the elliptic flow [19,20] in both non-strange and strange sectors. The key element of the approach is the in ...
