Abstract

We present a nonperturbative dynamical study of dilepton and vector meson production in heavy-ion collisions from 1 to 2 GeV/A bombarding energies incorporating all known sources relevant in this energy range. The dynamical evolution of the nucleus-nucleus collision is described by a transport equation of the Boltzmann-Uehling-Uhlenbeck type evolving phase-space distribution functions for nucleons, baryon resonances, pions, η's, ρ's and σ's with their isospin degrees of freedom. We investigate in particular the sensitivity of the calculated yields to predicted changes of the ρ and ω mesons in dense matter.
