Properties of strange and heavy mesons in nuclear matter

This paper investigates the properties of strange (kaon) and heavy (charm and bottom) mesons when embedded in nuclear matter, using a quark-based model called the Quark Meson Coupling model. The interactions of the light quark constituents with scalar and vector meson fields in the nuclear medium modify the masses and excitation energies of the mesons. Isospin effects are studied in both symmetric and asymmetric nuclear matter.
