The NA57 experiment studies the production of strange and multi-strange baryons and antibaryons in ultrarelativistic nucleus-nucleus collisions at the SPS. The main aim of NA57 is to investigate the behaviour of the enhancement of the production of particles with strangeness \s\=1,2,3 in nucleus-nucleus collisions at the variation of the energy and of the centrality of the collision defined e.g. as the number of participant nucleons. We shall recall the main features of the experimental set-up, and we shall illustrate the collected data samples and the status of their analysis.

Abstract

The NA57 experiment studies the production of strange and multi-strange baryons and antibaryons in ultrarelativistic nucleus-nucleus collisions at the SPS. The main aim of NA57 is to investigate the behaviour of the enhancement of the production of particles with strangeness \s\=1,2,3 in nucleus-nucleus collisions at the variation of the energy and of the centrality of the collision defined e.g. as the number of participant nucleons. We shall recall the main features of the experimental set-up, and we shall illustrate the collected data samples and the status of their analysis.
