    • "Inspecting the extracted statistical model parameters as a function of center of mass energy, two characteristic features arose: (i) The baryon chemical potential drops monotonically with increasing energy and (ii) the temperature initially increases but appears to level off at center of mass energies per colliding nucleon pair of about 20 GeV at a temperature around 160 MeV. This led to a prediction for LHC [8] that chemical freeze-out would occur at µ b = 0.8 "

    ABSTRACT: The most recent data from the CERN LHC are compared with calculations within the statistical hadronization model. The parameters temperature und baryon chemical potential are fitted to the data. The best fit yields a temperature of 156 MeV, slightly below the expectation from RHIC data. Proton yields are nearly three standard deviations below this fit and possible reasons are discussed.
