Title: Refractive Distortions of Two-Particle Correlations

Abstract

Using optical model calculations it has recently been shown that refractive phenomena from the collective mean field can significantly alter the sizes inferred from two-pion correlations. We demonstrate that such effects can be accounted for in classical calculations if mean field effects are included.
