NAVARRA, F. S.. Learning hydrodynamics with Yogiro Hama. Braz. J. Phys. [online]. 2007, vol.37, n.1a, pp.1-4. ISSN 0103-9733. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-97332007000100003.
As part of the celebration of his 70th birthday, I review the works done in collaboration with Prof. Yogiro Hama and try to recover the history of some of his ideas concerning the formation of a fluid in high energy hadronic collisions, its expansion and dissociation. I show how these ideas evolved and how they are relevant for understanding the present experimental data.
Keywords : Relativistic hydrodynamics; Multiparticle production; High energy hadronic collisions.
