Fluctuations and Fermi-Dirac Correlations in e+e- annihilation

Talk presented at XXXVI Int. Symp. on Multiparticle Dynamics, Paraty, Brazil, 2 - 8 Sept. 2006


In this talk I first present a short review of fluctuations in $e^+e^-$-annihilations. I then describe some new results on FD correlations. Experimental analyses of $pp$ and $\Lambda\Lambda$ correlations indicate a very small production radius. This result relies very strongly on comparisons with MC simulations. A study of the approximations and uncertainties is these simulations imply that it is premature to draw such a conclusion from the data.
