    • Abstract

       

      The free energy of a quark-gluon plasma fireball in the hadronic medium is calculated in the Ramanathan et al statistical model after incorporating the effect of curvature. The result with the inclusion of curvature is found to produce significant improvements in all the parameters we calculated with respect to the earlier results. The surface tension with this curvature effect is found to be $0.17 T_{c}^{3}$ , which is two times the earlier value of surface tension which is $0.078 T_{c}^{3}$ , and this new result is nearly close to the lattice value $0.24 T_{c}^{3}$. As far as transition is concerned, a thermodynamic variable like entropy shows weakly first-order phase transition and it shows continuity in the behaviour of specific heat.
