- The interferometry volume only slightly increases with collision energy (due to the long-radius growth) for the central collisions of the same nuclei.
Explanation:

- only slightly increases and is saturated due to limiting Hagedorn temperature TH =Tc (B = 0).
- grows with

- Possible increase of the interferometry volume with due to geometrical volume grows is mitigated by more intensive transverse flows at higher energies:
, is inverse of temperature

- Why does the intensity of flow grow?
More more initial energy density more (max) pressure pmax

BUT the initial acceleration is ≈ the same

HBT puzzle Intensity of collective flows grow

Time of system expansion grows:

Initial flows (< 1-2 fm/c) develop

Hydro-kinetic approach

- MODEL
- is based on relaxation time approximation for relativistic finite expanding system;
- provides evaluation of escape probabilities and deviations (even strong)
- of distribution functions [DF] from local equilibrium;
- 3. accounts for conservation laws at the particle emission;
- Complete algorithm includes:
- solution of equations of ideal hydro;
- calculation of non-equilibrium DF and emission function in first approximation;
- solution of equations for ideal hydro with non-zero left-hand-side that
- accounts for conservation laws for non-equlibrated process of the system
- which radiated free particles during expansion;
- Calculation of “exact” DF and emission function;
- Evaluation of spectra and correlations.

- The relatively small increase of interferometry radii with energy, as compare with expectations, are caused by
- increase of transverse flow due to longer expansion time;
- developing of initial flows at early pre-thermal stage;
- more hard transition EoS, corresponding to cross-over;
- non-flat initial (energy) density distributions, similar to Gaussan;
- early (as compare to CF-prescription) emission of hadrons, because
escape probability account for whole particle trajectory in rapidly expanding surrounding (no mean-free pass criterion for freeze-out)

- The hydrokinetic approach to A+A collisions is proposed. It allows one to describe the continuous particle emission from a hot and dense finite system, expanding hydrodynamically into vacuum, in the way which is consistent with Boltzmann equations and conservation laws, and accounts also for the opacity effects.
