Abstract
An event-by-event analysis of the azimuthal angular correlation with respec t to the reaction plane has been carried out for K+ and pi(+) emission near mid-rapidity in 158 A . GeV Pb + Pb collisions. In semi-central collisions , K+ mesons are found to be preferentially emitted out of the reaction plan e, while pi(+) mesons are emitted in the reaction plane. The results sugges t that the kaon emission is influenced by in-medium potential effects in ad dition to collective flow effects. (C) 1999 Published by Elsevier Science B .V. All rights reserved.
