Dynamical mass generation by spontaneous Chiral Symmetry breaking –m q 10 MeV (current quark mass) –m u,d m p,n / MeV (constituent quark mass) mass shift !?

Leichte Mesonen (M<<1 GeV),, K Keine Paritätsdupletts z.B. M( ) M(a 1 ) Durch Kopplung der Quarks an die virtuellen Quark-Antiquarkpaare des chiralen Kondensats erhalten sie dynamisch eine Masse (1232) (1600) k, p,n N (1440) N (1520) M [GeV] 0 1 a1a1 Vakuum 0 Mesonen Baryonen k, p,n N (1440) N (1520) M [GeV] 0 1 a1a1 Mesonen Baryonen 0 k, N (1440) N (1520) M [GeV] 0 1 Mesonen Baryonen a1a1 p,n 0

28 Dubna, November 2003Joachim Stroth Summary Dielectrons are ideal probes for the dense phase of nuclear matter. Creation and propagation well understood (QED). High penetrability The disadvantage of small branching ratios can partly be compensated by using state of the art micro electronics First results of the HADES spectrometer are arriving Conduct systematic investigation of heavy collisions up to 2 GeV/u Complemented by a series of experiments using proton and pion beams The future accelerator facility will provide ideal conditions to create nuclear matter at the highest densities HADES can cover beam energies up to 8 GeV/u Conceptually new technique for dielectron spectroscopy with CBM
