- The multifragmentation of gold nuclei at 1 GeV/nucleon has been studied using reverse kinematics. The moments of the resulting charged fragment distribution have been analyzed using methods borrowed from percolation theory. These moments provide clear evidence for critical behavior occurring in a system of about 200 nucleons. The critical exponents extracted from the data are close to those of liquid-gas systems.
