Abstract

Starting from the recognition that hadrons are not produced smoothly at phase transition, the fluctuation of spatial patterns is investigated by finding a measure of the voids that exhibits scaling behavior. The Ising model is used to simulate a crossover in quark-hadron phase transition. A threshold in hadron density is used to define a void. The dependence of the scaling exponents on that threshold is found to provide useful information on some properties of the hadronization process. The complication in heavy-ion collision introduces the possibility of configuration mixing, which can also be studied in this approach. Numerical criteria on the scaling exponents have been found that can be used to discriminate phase-transition processes from other hadronization processes having nothing to do with critical phenomena.
