Abstract:

It is demonstrated that there exists a direct correlation between the chemical freeze-out point and the softest point of the equation of state where the pressure divided by the energy density, [iopmath latex="$p(\varepsilon)/\varepsilon$"] p()/ [/iopmath] , has a minimum. A dynamical model is given as an example where the passage of the softest point coincides with the condition for chemical freeze-out, namely an average energy per hadron of [iopmath latex="$ \approx$"] [/iopmath] 1 GeV. The sensitivity of the result to the equation of state used is discussed.
