Nucleon-nucleon collision density

Can someone help me derive expression for nucleon-nucleon collision density as a function of transverse plane coordinates (ultra-relativistic heavy ion collisions) using Wood-Saxon nuclear densities( ...

Advantages of high-energy heavy-ion collisions over proton-proton collisions?

Some high-energy experiments (RHIC, LHC) use ion-ion collisions instead of proton-proton collisions. Although the total center-of-mass energy is indeed higher than p-p collisions, it might happen that ...
