# Antiproton-nucleus collisions simulation within a kinetic approach with relativistic mean fields - Nuclear Theory

Abstract: The Giessen Boltzmann-Uehling-Uhlenbeck transport model with relativisticmean fields is used to simulate $\bar p$-nucleus collisions. Antiprotonabsorption cross sections and momentum distributions of annihilation productsare calculated by varying the $\bar p$ coupling strength to the mean mesonfields. Parameters of the antiproton-nucleus optical potential are extractedfrom the comparison of the model calculations with experimental data.
