Talk Investigating Dynamics and the EOS with Correlations Dynamics and the Equation of State (2/2)

Finite viscosity affects the evolution of the fireball created in energetic nuclear collisions. A recent attempt of the CERES experiment to extract viscosity from pion source radii in central lead-gold collisions at the CERN SPS will be presented. The unexpected result, the limitations of the method, and the possible ways out will be discussed.
