Abstract

The propagation of σ-meson in nuclear matter is studied in the Walecka model, by assuming that the sigma couples to a pair of nucleon-antinucleon states and to particle-hole states. The in-medium effect of σ-ω mixing is also studied. For completeness, the coupling of sigma to two virtual pions was also considered. It is found that the σ-meson mass decreases with respect to its value in vacuum and that the contribution of the σ-ω mixing effect on the mass shift is relatively small. © Indian Academy of Sciences.
