In this paper, we proposed to study the phase transition process to use the new pair of variables, the temperature T and the cumulative number nc (T,nc). We considered the transverse energy spectra of protons and π−-mesons produced in π−-C interactions at 40 GeV/c as a function of cumulative number nc (or four-dimensional momentum transfer t) and the baryonic chemical potential μb(√t). Obtained results indicate the possible appearance of QCD phase transition of nuclear matter.
