ABSTRACT In the calculation of the K+-nucleus cross sections, the coupling of the mesons exchanged between the K+ and the target nucleons to the polarization of the Fermi and Dirac seas has been taken into account. This polarization has been calculated in the one-loop approximation but summed up to all orders (RPA approximation). For this calculation a density-dependent relativistic NN interaction reproducing the saturation curve of a Dirac-Brueckner calculation providing a good description of nuclear matter has been used. The agreement with experiment is considerably improved.

    ABSTRACT: We investigate K+-nucleus elastic scattering at intermediate energies within a microscopic optical model approach using the current K+-nucleon (KN) phase shifts from the Center for Nuclear Studies of the George Washington University as primary input. The KN phase shifts are used to generate Gel'fand-Levitan-Marchenko real and local inversion potentials. These potentials are supplemented with a short-range, complex separable term in such a way that the corresponding unitary and nonunitary KN S matrices are exactly reproduced. These KN potentials allow us to calculate all needed on- and off-shell contributions of the t matrix, the driving effective interaction in the full-folding K+-nucleus optical model potentials reported here. Elastic scattering of positive kaons from 6Li, 12C, 28Si, and 40Ca are studied at beam momenta in the range 400 1000 MeV/c, leading to a fair description of most differential and total cross section data. To complete the analysis of the full-folding model, three kinds of simpler trho calculations are considered and the results are discussed.

    ABSTRACT: Medium effects on the interaction of K and overlineK mesons with nucleons are reviewed. Recent K + nuclear data confirm that conventional multiple scattering models fail to describe the interaction of K mesons for incoming momenta p L = 400 - 800 MeV/c, suggesting a particular form of density dependence for the K nuclear optical potential. K - atom strong-interaction data, fitted using a density dependent nuclear optical potential which respects the low-density theorem, require an appreciably stronger attraction than that obtained using a V opt = tp form, of order 180 ± 20 MeV at nuclear-matter density. The relationship of this result to the physics of the Λ(1405) overlineKN unstable bound state is clarified, and the prospects of meeting the conditions for K - condensation in high-density matter are discussed.

    ABSTRACT: Coupled-channels calculations for the elastic and inelastic scattering of K+ at 715 MeV/c by 6Li and 12C at 635, 715 and 800 kaon Lab momenta have been analysed. The optical potentials of 12C and 6Li are calculated in terms of the alpha-particle and deuteron optical potentials. Good fits to the experimental data and phenomenological calculations are obtained for 6Li and 12C nuclei.
