Abstract: Experimental results concerning the kaon yield in the reaction d + Be → K ± (0 ◦ )+ X for values of the cumulative variable x c in the range between 0.88 and 1.37 are presented. Values in the region of x c ≥ 1 correspond to short nucleon – nucleon distances (deuteron-core region) at which nucleon wave functions begin overlapping each other, forming a cluster ( fl ucton) where the hadron-matter density is higher than the average matter density in the nucleus. The behavior of the K + /K − yield ratio in this region may be interpreted within the hypothesis that the quark sea in nuclei becomes harder because of the presence of a fl ucton component in nuclear matter.
