Abstract

The exploration of the phase diagram of strongly interacting matter, particularly the study of the phase transition from hadronic to partonic matter and the search for a hypothetical critical endpoint of the first order transition line, is one of the most challenging tasks in present heavy ion physics.

New results on chemical (particle ratio), transverse momentum, multiplicity and azimuthal angle fluctuations are presented. We also discuss their connection to the onset of deconfinement and to the critical endpoint.

Keywords: nucleus-nucleus collisions; fluctuations; critical point
