Abstract

The main task of the NICA/MPD physics program is a study of the properties of nuclear matter under extreme conditions achieved in collisions of heavy ions. These properties can reveal themselves through different probes, the most promising among those being the lepton-antilepton pairs and strange hadrons. In this paper the MPD performance for measuring the electron-positron pairs and strange particles (Λ, Ξ and Ω hyperons and their antiparticles \(\overline \Lambda \), \({\overline \Xi ^ + }\) and \({\overline \Omega ^ + }\) as well as hypernuclei 3 Λ Λ) in central Au + Au collisions at NICA energies is presented.
