Abstract

We study the production of spin-one mesons in high-energy heavy-ion collisions with peripheral kinematics in the framework of quantum electrodynamics (QED). The cross sections of the production of a single vector meson and of two different ones are presented. The explicit dependence on the virtuality of the intermediate vector meson is obtained within a quark model. The effect of Reggeization of the intermediate vector-meson state in the case of the production of two vector mesons is taken into account.
