Abstract
We measured the invariant mass spectra of electron-positron pairs in the ta rget rapidity region of 12-GeV p + A reactions. We have observed a signific ant difference in the mass spectra below the omega mason between p + C and p + Cu interactions. This difference indicates that the spectral shape of m asons is modified at normal nuclear-matter density.
