Nonrelativistic rescattering effects on two-particle correlation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We derive a general formula for the two-particle correlation function when the produced particles are allowed to elastically rescatter in the medium. We then specialize to rescattering centres that are localized static potentials. With a Gaussian source distribution, we calculate the corrections for R out and Rside. The ratio Rout/ Rside increases with momentum from below to above unity. An example for kaon interferometry is given with some specific numbers.
