    We calculate the effect of many-body interactions in nuclear matter on the spectral function of ρ\rho and ω\omega meson. In particular, we focus on the role played by baryon resonances in this context.Comment: 4 pages, 4 figures, to be published in proceedings of the Third International Conference on Perspectives on Hadronic Physics, 7 - 11 May 2001, Miramare-Trieste, Ital

    We investigate the coupling of vector mesons with nucleons to nucleon resonances in an isospin-selective VMD approach and explore the in-medium properties of vector mesons.Comment: 8 pages, 2tables, 4 figures, invited talk at NSTAR 2001, Workshop on the Physics of Excited Nucleons, University of Mainz, Germany, March 7-10, 2001.
