The aim of the NA61/SHINE strong interaction programme is to explore the phase diagram of strongly interacting matter. The main physics goals are the study of the onset of deconfinement and the search for the critical point of strongly interacting matter. These goals are pursued by performing an beam momentum (13A - 158A GeV/c) and system size (p+p, p+Pb, Be+Be, Ar+Sc, Xe+La) scan. This...

The study of event-by-event fluctuations of identified hadrons may reveal the degrees of freedom of the strongly interacting matter created in heavy-ion collisions and reflect the underlying dynamics of the system. The observable νdyn, which is given in terms of the moments of identified-particle multiplicity distributions, is used to quantify the magnitude of the dynamical fluctuations in...
The intriguing possibility of Bose-Einstein condensation of pions (BEC) at the LHC [1-3] is examined with the use of higher order moments of the multiplicity distribution. The scaled variance, skewness and kurtosis are calculated for the pion system in and out of chemical equilibrium. The effects of resonance decays are estimated. The obtained results show the possibility to see a significant...

We study the production of (anti-) strange and multi-strange hadrons in heavy-ion collisions from FAIR/NICA to LHC energies within the Parton-Hadron-String Dynamics (PHSD) microscopic transport approach, which contains the partonic and hadronic dynamics. By showing the channel decomposition for the strangeness production we demonstrate how with increasing energy the production in the QGP...
