Does an f-Meson Behave like a Massive Graviton?

We study the reaction π- p →f0 n to see whether an f-meson couples to the conserved energy momentum tensor and thus behaves like a massive graviton. Detailed experiments on the differential cross-sections for the reaction π- p →f0 n at extremely small momentum transfers and large energies seem to be useful to answer the question.
