Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 92)


The experiments and results for positron production in superheavy collision systems are briefly described. A simple parametrization exhibits the main dynamical features of the process and relates the data to vacancy production and monopole internal electron and pair conversion.
