Abstract
The multiplicity of inclusive photons has been measured on an event-by-even t basis for 158.A GeV Pb induced reactions on Ni, Nb, and Pb targets. The s ystematics of the pseudorapidity densities at midrapidity (rho(max)) and th e width of the pseudorapidity distributions have been studied for varying c entralities for these collisions. A power law fit to the photon yield as a function of the number of participating nucleons gives a value of 1.12 +/- 0.03 for the exponent. The mean transverse momentum, [p(T)], of photons det ermined from the ratio of the measured electromagnetic transverse energy an d photon multiplicity, remains almost constant with increasing rho(max). Re sults are compared with model predictions. (C) 1999 Published by Elsevier S cience B.V. All rights reserved.
