At the sqrt(sNN)=200 GeV top beam energy of the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), collisions of two 197-Au nuclei result in dense and strongly interacting systems of partons at high temperatures, T, and low baryo-chemical potentials, muB. In central collisions, these systems hadronize at (muB,T) values near (~20,~160) MeV via a crossover-type transition. Systems formed at larger...

In this talk, we examine some of proposed experimental signals for the QCD end point and QCD phase transition. We then argue that final interaction effects are very important in relating physical quantities around the end point or in the quark-gluon plasma to experimental observables. Finally, we show that it is possible to reconstruct baryon number cumulants at chemical freezeout from...
