Abstract

The production of strange mesons in collisions of Ar+KCl at a kinetic beam energy of 1.756 A GeV is studied within a transport model of Boltzmann-Ühling-Uhlenbeck type. In particular, Φ, K+, and K- yields and spectra are compared to the data measured recently by the HADES Collaboration and the Φ yield measured previously by the FOPI Collaboration. Our results are in agreement with these data, thus presenting an interpretation of the subleading role of Φ decays into K-'s and confirming the importance of the strangeness-exchange channels for K- production.
