# Reduced $\sigma$-meson mass and in-medium S-wave $\pi-\pi$ correlations

Abstract : The influence of a dropping sigma-meson mass on previously calculated in-medium pion-pion correlations in the J=I=0 (sigma-meson) channel is investigated. It is found that the invariant-mass distribution around the vacuum threshold experiences a further strong enhancement with respect to standard many-body effects. The relevance of this result for the explanation of recent $A(\pi,2\pi)X$ data is pointed out.
