Abstract We study the behavior of the ρ vector mass in the context of the almost baryon-free environment of an ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collision. We show that ρ scattering within the hadronic phase of the collision leads to a temperature dependent, decrease of its intrinsic mass at rest, compared to the value in vacuum. The main contributions arise from s-channel scattering with pions through the formation of a 1 resonances as well as with nucleons through the formation of even parity… Expand
