One- and two-dimensional analysis of the factorial moments in 200 GeV/nucleon p, O16, and S32 interactions with Ag and Br nuclei
Scaled factorial moments, corrected for the shape of the single-particle pseudorapidity distribution, are analyzed in pseudorapidity and in two-dimensional (pseudorapidity and azimuth angle) space. An intermittent, power-law growth of the moments with decreasing bin size is found, with two-dimensional analysis revealing a much stronger effect than for one-dimensional for nucleus-nucleus data. The intermittent patterns are more evident for proton-nucleus than for nucleus-nucleus collisions, with the heaviest nucleus, S32, showing the weakest effect. © 1989 The American Physical Society.
