Kaon dispersion relation and flow in relativistic heavy-ion collisions. Academic Article uri icon


  • Within the framework of a relativistic transport model (ART) for heavy-ion collisions at AGS energies, we examine the effects of a kaon dispersion relation on the transverse flow of kaons and their transverse momentum and azimuthal angle distributions. We find that the transverse flow is the most sensitive observable for studying the kaon dispersion relation in dense medium.
