Abstract

We performed coupled-channel calculations for the nonperturbative description of electron-positron pair production in relativistic heavy ion collisions. For the system U92++U92+ at Elab=10 GeV/nucleon and impact parameter b=386 fm we obtained probabilities for pair production with inner-shell capture that exceed the results of first order perturbation theory by two orders of magnitude.
