~ 27 (20) for p (pbar)

N(p) > N(pbar) systematically

Over the full phase space:

K+/+ = 16.6 1.5 % (syst)

Why this behavior ?

evolves like net-proton

High energy density

Gluon saturation describes data, though not uniquely

70% of energy available for particle production

Source (nearly) same over >1 unit rapidity

High pT suppression persists to high y in Au+Au

Grows vs y in d+Au
