Title: Measurement of meson resonance production in $$\pi ^- + C$$ interactions at SPS energies: The NA61/SHINE Collaboration

Abstract

Here, we present measurements of $$\rho^0$$, $$\omega$$ and K$$^{*0}$$ spectra in $$\pi^{-} + $$C production interactions at 158 GeV/c and $$\rho^0$$ spectra at 350 GeV/c using the NA61/SHINE spectrometer at the CERN SPS. Spectra are presented as a function of the Feynman's variable $$x_\text{F}$$ in the range $$0 < x_\text{F} < 1$$ and $$0 < x_\text{F} < 0.5$$ for 158 GeV/c and 350 GeV/c respectively. Furthermore, we show comparisons with previous measurements and predictions of several hadronic interaction models. Our measurements are essential for a better understanding of hadronic shower development and for improving the modeling of cosmic ray air showers.
