K+ production in baryon-baryon and heavy-ion collisions
MetadataShow full item record
Kaon production cross sections in nucleon-nucleon, nucleon-Delta, and Delta-Delta interactions are studied in a boson exchange model. For the latter two interactions, the exchanged pion can be on-mass shellonly contributions due to a virtual pion an included via the Peierls method by taking into account the finite Delta width. With these cross sections and also those for pion-baryon interactions, subthreshold kaon production from heavy-ion collisions is studied in the relativistic transport model.
