Abstract (data abstract)
The transverse mass spectra and midrapidity yields for $\Xi$s and $\Omega$s are presented. For the 10% most central collisions, the $\bar{\Xi}^+/h^-$ ratio increases from the Super Proton Synchrotron to the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider energies while the $\Xi^-/h^-$ stays approximately constant. A hydrodynamically inspired model fit to the $\Xi$ spectra, which assumes a thermalized source, seems to indicate that these multistrange particles experience a significant transverse flow effect, but are emitted when the system is hotter and the flow is smaller than values obtained from a combined fit to $\pi$, $K$, $p$, and $\Lambda$s.
