NA61/SHINE is, at the moment, the only multipurpose fixed-target facility studying particle production properties at p+p and A+A at the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron. The main goals of the NA61/SHINE strong-interactions program are to discover the critical point of strongly interacting matter as well as to study the properties of produced particles relevant for the study of the onset of deconfinement - the transition between the state of hadronic matter and the quark-gluon plasma., An analysis of hadron production properties is performed in nucleus-nucleus, proton-proton, and proton-nucleus interactions as a function of collision energy and size of the colliding nuclei to achieve these goals.
The NA61/SHINE results from a strong interaction measurement program will be presented. In particular, the latest results from different reactions p+p, Be+Be, Ar+Sc, and Pb+Pb on hadron spectra and fluctuations will be discussed. The NA61/SHINE results will be compared with worldwide experiments and predictions of various theoretical models, like EPOS, PHSD, UrQMD, and others.
