Overview Talk Tuesday Morning


Prof. Marcus Bleicher (Univ. Frankfurt)


We present results on the sub- and near threshold production of multi-strange hadrons and of charmed hadrons. These particle allow to explore multi-step processes in dense hadronic matter. We provide an alternative explanation for the observed transparency ratios and show how the observed enhanced Cascade production at HADES energies can be explained. For the near and subtrehsold production of charmed hadrons, we present the first estimates for the SIS-100 energies, indicating that charm studies might still be feasable, even without SIS-300.
