Abstract
The Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) has made it possible to study hadronic matter under unprecedented conditions in terms of temperature and energy density. Global variables are essential for the characterization of nuclear collisions at ultra-relativistic energies. The PHENIX experiment has several detectors which provide information about the global properties and hence the initial conditions, such as energy density, reached in these collisions. The results discussed here are charged particle multiplicity, transverse energy, net charge fluctuations and fluctuations in mean p<sub>T</sub>
