Reaction dynamics in collisions of antiprotons on nuclei is investigated within the Lanzhou quantum molecular
dynamics model. The reaction channels of elastic scattering, annihilation, charge exchange and inelastic
collisions of antiprotons on nucleons have been included in the model. Dynamics on particle production, in
particular pions, kaons, antikaons and hyperons, is investigated in collisions of p on 12C, 20Ne, 40Ca and 181Ta
from low to high incident momenta. It is found that the annihilations of p on nucleons are of importance to the
dynamics of particle production in phase space. Hyperons are mainly produced via meson induced reactions on
nucleons and strangeness exchange collisions, which lead to delayed emission in antiproton-nucleus collisions.
