The PHOBOS experiment at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC)
has collected datasets of Au+Au, Cu+Cu, d+Au and p+p collisions
in the center of mass energy range spanning from 19 GeV/nucleon to 200
GeV/nucleon. The almost full angular coverage of the PHOBOS detector
allows one to study particle production over 10 units pseudorapidity.
Reconstruction and identification of charged particles in the spectrometer
is possible down to very low transverse momenta.
In this conference report, properties of the strongly interacting
Quark-Gluon Plasma (sQGP) created in the nucleus-nucleus collisions
at the highest energy available in laboratory are discussed.
Results from the PHOBOS experiment on jet suppression, very low
particle production and elliptic flow are shown.
Emphasis is put on the most recent studies of the correlations
of charged particles with respect to a high- trigger
particle, elliptic flow fluctuations and two particle correlations.
Key words: jet quenching, two particle correlations, elliptic flow, flow fluctuations
