We compute by numerical integration of the Dirac equation the number of quark‐antiquark pairs produced in the classical color fields of colliding ultrarelativistic nuclei. The back‐reaction of the created pairs on the color fields is not taken into account. While the number of qq̄ pairs is parametrically suppressed in the coupling constant, we find that in this classical field model it could even be compatible with the thermal ratio to the number of gluons.
