Abstract

The transverse polarization of lambda produced in relativistic nucleus - nucleus collisions is determined. The effect from the interaction between spin moment and magnetic field is corrected. The near zero transverse polarization and non - correlation between transverse polarization and transverse momentum are obtained and compared to ones obtained from the nucleus - nucleus interactions at lower energies. This comparison shows that the production mechanism of lambda in the relativistic nucleus - nucleus collisions is different from one in the nucleus - nucleus reactions at lower energies.
