Description

SMASH (Simulating Many Accelerated Strongly-interacting Hadrons) is a new hadronic transport model designed to describe the non-equilibrium evolution of heavy-ion collisions. We discuss two different strangeness production mechanisms: one based on resonances and another one using forced canonical thermalization. Comparisons to experimental data from elementary and heavy-ion collisions are shown.
