Ultrarelativistic heavy ion collisions are useful “tools” to investigate the hot and dense nuclear matter. Particle abundances and ratios have been suggested as possible signatures for exotic states and phase transitions in dense nuclear matter. We used a microscopic transport model to calculate the particle ratios and multiplicities from Au-Au collisions, and compared the preliminary results with the statistical model.
