The scaled factorial moment, which is a statistical tool for measuring large local fluctuations of dynamical origin, has been utilized to probe the distribution of secondary particles produced in -AgBr interactions at 60 GeV/n. The analysis indicates the occurrence of a non-thermal phase transition in case of pionisation in heavy-ion interactions at extremely high energy.
