Studying the phi meson in nuclear matter in a transport approach
In this presentation I will report on an ongoing project, attempting to simulate pA reactions in which the $\phi$ meson is produced in nuclei, making use of a transport approach . Comparisons between obtained dilepton spectra and experimental data of the E325 experiment at KEK  will be made and an outlook for the ongoing E16 experiment at J-PARC will be given.
