Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Study Institute on [title], held in Bodrum, Turkey, Sept.-Oct. 1993. Leading researchers present new material and new results with regard to hot and dense nuclear matter. Essentially, they investigate how matter may have been formed and what its properties were just fractions of a second after the big bang, after the inflationary phase of the creation of the universe was over. Among the specific topics: the hydrodynamic model for high-energy heavy ion reactions; multifragmentation; antisymmetrized molecular dynamics; chiral dynamics in dense matter; and quantum dynamics in phase space.
