- Bose-Einstein correlation functions which are in good agreement with pion data can be calculated from an event generator. Here pion and (preliminary) kaon data from CERN experiment NA44 are compared to the calculations. The dynamics of 200 GeV/nucleon ³²S + Pb collisions are calculated, without correlations due to interference patterns of a many-body wavefunction for identical particles, using the Relativistic Quantum Molecular Dynamics model (RQMD). The model is used to generate the phase-space coordinates of the emitted hadrons at the time they suffer their last strong interaction (freeze-out). Using the freeze-out position and momentum of pairs of randomly selected identical particles, a two-particle symmetrized wave-function is calculated and used to add two-body correlations. Details of the technique have been described previously. The method is similar to that used in the Spacer program.
