Role of the a1 meson in dilepton production from hot hadronic matter. Academic Article uri icon


  • Dilepton production from hot hadronic matter is studied in an effective chiral Lagrangian with pions, mesons, and a1 mesons. We find that the production rates from reactions that involve axial-vector mesons dominate over contributions from all other reactions when the dilepton invariant mass is above 1.5 GeV. 1994 The American Physical Society.
