Multiplicity distributions and event-by-event multiplicity fluctuations in AuAu collisions at energies in future heavy-ion experiment at the Facility for Anti-proton and Ion Research (FAIR) are investigated. Events corresponding to FAIR energies are simulated in the frame work of Ultra Relativistic Quantum Molecular Dynamics (URQMD) model. It is observed that the mean and the width of multiplicity distributions monotonically increase with beam energy. The trend of variations of dispersion with

The multiplicity distributions in various centrality bins as well as for full event samples are observed to obey Koba, Nielsen and Olesen (KNO) scaling. The trends of variations of scaled variance with beam energy are also found to support the KNO scaling predictions for larger collision centrality. The findings also reveal that the statistical fluctuations in 5% centrality-bin width appear to be under control.
