- A general overview of the field of high-energy nuclear collisions studied from light particle spectra, pions, kaons, lambdas, protons, deuterons, and light composite fragments is given. Specifically, the basic reaction mechanism that determines the main features of particle emission such as the energy and angular distributions, the multiplicity, the production rate, the projectile and target mass dependences, the beam-energy dependences, etc. are discussed. Very general features of high-energy nuclear collisions are described. The major question is what characterizes these collisions. Proton emission is discussed since the proton is the dominant particle emitted at a large angle. The mechanism of composite-fragment formation is discussed. Also pion production and strange particle production are considered.
