Extract the s quarks pT distributions from high stat. W f data?
If baryons of pT are mostly formed from coalescence of partons at pT/3 and mesons of pT are mostly formed from coalescence of partons at pT/2 [1,2,3]

i.e. the hadronic evolution process have been added to the hydrodynamic models as an afterburner and have been shown to significantly alter the spectra shapes of ordinary hadrons. T. Hirano et al., Phys. Rev. C 77, 044909 (2008)
Can our derived quark distributions, representing a cumulative effect from initial conditions through partonic evolution, be used to determine the final-state hadron momentum distribution?

It can faithfully reproduce the data at intermediate pT.
An essential ingredient in Reco./Coa. model calculation: the distribution of effective constituent quarks that readily turn into hadron.
Our approach in complement with the constituent quark number scaling in elliptic flow provides a means to measure quantitative parton distributions at hadronization.
