Abstract
Localized fluctuations in the multiplicity of charged particles and photons produced in central 158A GeV/c Pb+Pb collisions are studied. The charged v ersus neutral correlations in common eta-phi phase space regions of varying azimuthal size are analyzed by two different methods. The analysis provide s a model-independent demonstration of nonstatistical fluctuations in both charged particle and photon multiplicities in limited azimuthal regions. Ho wever, no correlated charge-neutral fluctuations are observed, contrary to expectations for the production of a disoriented chiral condensate. The res ult is not explained by the widely used VENUS model.
