Abstract

Transverse mass spectra of pions, kaons, and protons from the symmetric heavy-ion collisions 200 A GeV S + S and 158 A GeV Pb + Pb, measured in the NA44 focusing spectrometer at CERN, are presented. The mass dependence of the slope parameters provides evidence of collective transverse flow from expansion of the system in heavy-ion induced central collisions.
