Transport Model with Quasipions
MetadataShow full item record
We extend the normal transport model to include the medium effect on pions by treating them as quasiparticles. The property of the quasipion is determined using the delta-hole model. Modelling heavy-ion collisions at intermediate energies with the new transport equations, we find that it leads to an enhanced production of pions with low kinetic energies. This gives a plausible explanation for the observed enhancement of soft pions in the Bevalac experiments.
