A-dependence of φ-meson production in p + A collisions

Regular Article - Theoretical Physics

Abstract

A systematic analysis of the A-dependence of φ-meson production in proton-nucleus collisions is presented. We apply different formalisms for the evaluation of the φ-meson distortion in nuclei and discuss the theoretical uncertainties of the data analysis. The corresponding results are compared to theoretical predictions. We also discuss the interpretation of the extracted results with respect to different observables and provide relations between frequently used definitions. The perspectives of future experiments are evaluated and estimates based on our systematical study are given.
