We discuss the exact solution of the classical relativistic equations of motion for an action corresponding to nucleons interacting with massive scalar and vector meson fields. This model−the classical analogue of the quantum hadrodynamics of Serot and Walecka−provides a manifestly Lorentz covariant approach to heavy‐ion collisions, allows for nonequilibrium phenomena, interactions of correlated nucleon clusters, and particle production, and is valid when interaction times are short. We present an analysis of the nonlocality inherent in the model and discuss effects arising from the finite size of a nucleon.
