    The vast amount of $c\\overline{c}$ production that can be recorded by the LHCb detector makes it an ideal environment to study the hadronic production of charmed baryons, along with the properties of their decays. We briefly describe the LHCb experiment and the triggering mechanisms it uses for recording charm production. Previous charmed baryon results from LHCb are detailed, with a description of the future plans for the charmed baryon programme.

    We discuss the significance of charm baryon spectroscopy in hadron physics and review the recent developments of the spectra of charmed baryons in lattice calculations. Special emphasis is given on the recent studies of highly excited charm baryon states. Recent precision lattice measurements of the low lying charm and bottom baryons are also reviewed.

    The spectrum of doubly and triply heavy baryons remains experimentally unexplored to a large extent. Although the detection of such heavy particle states may lie beyond the reach of exper- iments for some time, it is interesting compute this spectrum from QCD and compare results between lattice calculations and continuum theoretical models. Several lattice calculations ex- ist for both doubly and triply charmed as well as doubly and triply bottom baryons. Here, we present preliminary results from the first lattice calculation of doubly and triply heavy baryons including both charm and bottom quarks. We use domain wall fermions for 2+1 flavors (up down and strange) of sea and valence quarks, a relativistic heavy quark action for the charm quarks, and non-relativistic QCD for the heavier bottom quarks. We present preliminary results for the ground state spectrum.

  4. Photoproduction of charmed baryons

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The results of a search for the photoproduction of charmed baryons in the broad-band neutral beam at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory are reported. The lowest lying charmed baryon (Λ/sub c/+) is observed through its decay to p-anti K0. The cross section times branching ratio of γ + C → Λ/sub c/+ + X, γ + C → p + anti K0 is measured to be sigma B = 3 nanobarns/nucleon. The total error on this measurement is estimated to be -20% to +40%. The mass of the Λ/sub c/+ is found to be 2.284 +- 0.001 GeV/c2, in good agreement with the Mark II result from SPEAR. Upper limits (90% confidence level) are set on sigma B for the modes Λ0π, Λ0πππ, pKπ

  5. Hyperon AND Hyperon Resonance Properties From Charm Baryon Decays At BaBar

    This report describes studies of hyperons and hyperon resonances produced in charm baryon decays at BABAR. Using two-body decays of the {Xi}{sub c}{sup 0} and {Omega}{sub c}{sup 0}, it is shown, for the first time, that the spin of the {omega}{sup -} is 3/2. The {Omega}{sup -} analysis procedures are extended to three-body final states and properties of the {Xi}(1690){sup 0} are extracted from a detailed isobar model analysis of the {Lambda}{sub c}{sup +} {yields} {Lambda}{bar K}{sup 0}K{sup +} Dalitz plot. The mass and width values of the {Xi}(1690){sup 0} are measured with much greater precision than attained previously. The hypothesis that the spin of the {Xi}(1690) resonance is 1/2 yields an excellent description of the data, while spin values 3/2 and 5/2 are disfavored. The {Lambda}a{sub 0}(980){sup +} decay mode of the {Lambda}{sub c}{sup +} is observed for the first time. Similar techniques are then used to study {Xi}(1530){sup 0} production in {Lambda}{sub c}{sup +} decay. The spin of the {Xi}(1530) is established for the first time to be 3/2. The existence of an S-wave amplitude in the {Xi}{sup -}{pi}{sup +} system is shown, and its interference with the {Xi}(1530){sup 0} amplitude provides the first clear demonstration of the Breit-Wigner phase motion expected for the {Xi}(1530). The {Xi}{sup -}{pi}{sup +} mass distribution in the vicinity of the {Xi}(1690){sup 0} exhibits interesting structure which may be interpreted as indicating that the {Xi}(1690) has negative parity.

    In this work, we evaluate the lifetimes of the doubly charmed baryons cc+, cc++, and Ωcc+. We carefully calculate the non-spectator contributions at the quark level, where the Cabibbo-suppressed diagrams are also included. The hadronic matrix elements are evaluated in the simple non-relativistic harmonic oscillator model. Our numerical results are generally consistent with that obtained by other authors who used the diquark model. However, all the theoretical predictions on the lifetimes are one order larger than the upper limit set by the recent SELEX measurement. This discrepancy would be clarified by the future experiment. If more accurate experiment still confirms the value of the SELEX collaboration, there must be some unknown mechanism to be explored.

  9. Quark model calculation of charmed baryon production by neutrinos

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We study the neutrino production of 25 low-lying charmed baryon resonances in the four flavour quark model. The mass difference of ordinary and charmed quarks is explicitly taken into account. The quark model is used to determine the spectrum of the charmed baryon resonances and the q2 = 0 values of the weak current transition matrix elements. These transition matrix elements are then continued to space-like q2-values by a generalized meson dominance ansatz for a set of suitably chosen invariant form factors. We find that the production of the L = 0 states C0, C1 and C1* is dominant, with the C0 produced most copiously. For L = 1, 2 the Jsup(P) = 3/2- 5/2+ charm states are dominant. We give differential cross sections, total cross sections and energy integrated total cross sections using experimental neutrino fluxes. (orig./BJ)

    In the framework of dispersion relation technique the relativistic three-quark equations including heavy quarks are found. The approximate solutions of the relativistic three-particles equations based on the extraction of leading singularities of amplitudes are obtained. The mass values of S-wave multiplets of charmed baryons are calculated.

    In this paper, we discuss reactions involving charmed baryons to explore their unique features. A well known phenomenon, the separation of the two internal motions of the ρ and λ types of a three-quark system is revisited. First we discuss the mass spectrum of low lying excitations as function of the heavy quark mass, smoothly connecting the SU (3) and heavy quark limits. The properties of these modes can be tested in the production and decay reactions of the baryons. For production, we consider a one step process which excites dominantly λ modes. We find abundant production rates for some of the excited states. For decay, we study a pion emission process which provides a clean tool to test the structure of heavy quark systems due to the well controlled low energy dynamics of pions and quarks. Both production and decay of charmed baryons are issues for future experiments at J-PARC.

    We present the ground and excited state spectra of singly, doubly and triply charmed baryons by using dynamical lattice QCD. A large set of baryonic operators that respect the symmetries of the lattice and are obtained after subduction from their continuum analogues are utilized. Using novel computational techniques correlation functions of these operators are generated and the variational method is exploited to extract excited states. The lattice spectra that we obtain have baryonic states with well-defined total spins up to 7/2 and the low lying states remarkably resemble the expectations of quantum numbers from SU(6) x O(3) symmetry. Various energy splittings between the extracted states, including splittings due to hyperfine as well as spin-orbit coupling, are considered and those are also compared against similar energy splittings at other quark masses.

    We calculate the masses of baryons containing one, two, or three heavy quarks using lattice QCD. We consider all possible combinations of charm and bottom quarks, and compute a total of 36 different states with $J^P = \\frac12^+$ and $J^P = \\frac32^+$. We use domain-wall fermions for the up, down, and strange quarks, a relativistic heavy-quark action for the charm quarks, and nonrelativistic QCD for the bottom quarks. Our analysis includes results from two different lattice spacings and seven different pion masses. We perform extrapolations of the baryon masses to the continuum limit and to the physical pion mass using $SU(4|2)$ heavy-hadron chiral perturbation theory including $1/m_Q$ and finite-volume effects. For the 14 singly heavy baryons that have already been observed, our results agree with the experimental values within the uncertainties. We compare our predictions for the hitherto unobserved states with other lattice calculations and quark-model studies.

    We report results of a study of doubly charmed baryons and charmed strange baryons. The analysis is performed using a 980 fb^-1 data sample collected with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e^+e^- collider. We search for doubly charmed baryons Xi_cc^+(+) with the Lambda_c^+K^-pi^+(pi^+) and Xi_c^0pi^+(pi^+) final states. No significant signal is observed. We also search for two excited charmed strange baryons, Xi_c(3055)^+ and Xi_c(3123)^+ with the Sigma_c^++(2455)K^- and Sigma_c^++(2520)K^- final states. The Xi_c(3055)^+ signal is observed with a significance of 6.6 standard deviations including systematic uncertainty, while no signature of the Xi_c(3123)^+ is seen. We also study properties of the Xi_c(2645)^+ and measure a width of 2.6 +- 0.2 (stat) +- 0.4 (syst) MeV/c^2, which is the first significant determination.

  1. Strong BBP couplings for the charmed baryons

    CERN Document Server

    Verma, R C; Verma, R C; Khanna, M P

    1995-01-01

    According to the Coleman-Glashow null theorem if all the symmetry breaking effects belong to the same regular representation (octet in the case of SU(3) and {\\bf 15} in the case of SU(4)) and are generated in a tadpole type mechanism, the strangeness changing (charm changing) weak transitions generated through the S_{6} (S_{9}) tadpole must vanish. Exploiting this null result, we find relations between the BBP coupling constants which allow us to write the coupling constants in terms of two parameters and baryon masses. Fixing these two parameters ( g_{NN\\pi} and g_{\\Lambda \\Sigma \\pi}) from experiments, we estimate the remaining coupling constants.

    2007-10-15

    In this dissertation I describe a study of double-charm and charm-strange baryons based on data collected with the BABAR Detector at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. In this study I search for new baryons and make precise measurements of their properties and decay modes. I seek to verify and expand upon double-charm and charm-strange baryon observations made by other experiments. The BABAR Detector is used to measure subatomic particles that are produced at the PEP-II storage rings. I analyze approximately 300 million e+e- {yields} c{bar c} events in a search for the production of double-charm baryons. I search for the double-charm baryons {Xi}{sup +}{sub cc} (containing the quarks ccd) and {Xi}{sup ++}{sub cc} (ccu) in decays to {Lambda}{sup +}{sub c}K{sup -}{pi}{sup +} and {Lambda}{sup +}{sub c}K{sup -}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup +}, respectively. No statistically significant signals for their production are found, and upper limits on their production are determined. Statistically significant signals for excited charm-strange baryons are observed with my analysis of approximately 500 million e+e- {yields} c{bar c} events. The charged charm-strange baryons {Xi}{sub c}(2970){sup +}, {Xi}{sub c}(3055){sup +}, {Xi}{sub c}(3123){sup +} are found in decays to {Lambda}{sup +}{sub c}K{sup -}{pi}{sup +}, the same decay mode used in the {Xi}{sup +}{sub cc} search. The neutral charm-strange baryon {Xi}{sub c}(3077){sup 0} is observed in decays to {Lambda}{sup +}{sub c}K{sub 8}{pi}{sup -}. I also search for excited charm-strange baryon decays to {Lambda}{sup +}{sub c}K{sub 8}, {Lambda}{sup +}{sub c}K{sup -}, {Lambda}{sup +}{sub c}K{sub 8}{pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup +}, and {Lambda}{sup +}{sub c}K{sup -}{pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup +}. No significant charm-strange baryon signals a f h these decay modes. For each excited charm-strange baryon state that I observe, I measure its mass, natural width (lifetime), and production rate. The properties of these excited charm-strange baryons and their

  3. Magnetic moments of charm baryons in chiral perturbation theory

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Magnetic moments of the charm baryons of the sextet and of the 3*-plet are re-evaluated in the framework of Heavy Hadron Chiral Perturbation Theory (HHCPT). NRQM and broken SU(4) unitary symmetry model are used to obtain tree-level magnetic moments. Calculations of a unitary symmetry part of one-loop contributions to magnetic moments of the charm baryons are performed in detail in terms of the SU(4) couplings of charm baryons to Goldstone bosons. The relations between the magnetic moments of the sextet 1/2 baryons with the one-loop corrections are shown to coincide with the NRQM relations. The correspondence between HHCPT results and those of NRQM and unitary symmetry model is discussed. It is shown that one-loop corrections can effectively be absorbed into the tree-level formulae for the magnetic moments of the charm baryons in the broken SU(4) unitary symmetry model and partially in the NRQM.

    The SELEX experiment (E781) at Fermilab has observed two statistically compelling high mass states near 3.6 GeV/c{sup 2}, decaying to {Lambda}{sub c}{sup +} K{sup -} {pi}{sup +} and {Lambda}{sub c}{sup +} K{sup -} {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup +}. These final states are Cabibbo-allowed decay modes of doubly charmed baryons {Xi}{sub cc}{sup +} and {Xi}{sub cc}{sup ++}, respectively. The masses are in the range expected from theoretical considerations, but the spectroscopy is surprising. SELEX also has weaker preliminary evidence for a state near 3.8 GeV/c{sup 2}, a high mass state decaying to {Lambda}{sub c}{sup +} K{sup -} {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup +}, possibly an excited {Xi}{sub cc}{sup ++} (ccu*). Data are presented and discussed.

    2006-07-07

    The physics of this note is divided into two parts. The first part measures the {Lambda}{sub c} {yields} {pi}kp continuum momentum spectrum at a center of mass energy of 10.54 GeV/c. The data sample consists of 15,400 {Lambda}{sub c} baryons from 9.46 fb{sup -1} of integrated luminosity. With more than 13 times more data than the best previous measurement, we are able to exclude some of the simpler, one parameter fragmentation functions. In the second part, we add the {Lambda}{sub c} {yields} K{sup 0}p mode, and look for events with a {Lambda}{sub c}{sup +} and a {bar {Lambda}}{sub c}{sup -} in order to look for ''popcorn'' mesons formed between the baryon and antibaryon. We add on-resonance data, with a kinematic cut to eliminate background from B decays, as well as BaBar run 3 and 4 data to increase the total data size to 219.70 fb{sup -1}. We find 619 events after background subtraction. After a subtraction of 1.06 {+-} .09 charged pions coming from decays of known resonances to {Lambda}{sub c} + {eta}{pi}, we are left with 2.63 {+-} .21 additional charged pions in each of these events. This is significantly higher than the .5 popcorn mesons per baryon pair used in the current tuning of Pythia 6.2, the most widely used Monte Carlo generator. The extra mesons we find appear to be the first direct evidence of popcorn mesons, although some of them could be arising from hypothetical unresolved, unobserved charmed baryon resonances contributing decay mesons to our data. To contribute a significant fraction, this hypothesis requires a large number of such broad unresolved states and seems unlikely, but can not be completely excluded.

    The physics of this dissertation is divided into two parts. The first part measures the Λc → pi kp continuum momentum spectrum at a center of mass energy of 10.54 GeV/c, which is just below the Υ(4s) resonance. The data sample consists of 15,400 Λc baryons from 9.46 fb-1 of integrated luminosity collected with the BaBar detector at the PEP-II asymmetric B factory at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. With more than 13 times more data than the best previous measurement, we are able to exclude some of the simpler, one parameter fragmentation functions. In the second part, we add the Λc → K0p mode, and look for events with a Λc+ and a Λ c- in order to look for "popcorn" mesons formed between the baryon and antibaryon. We add on-resonance data, with a kinematic cut to eliminate background from B decays, as well as BaBar run 3 and 4 data to increase the total data size to 219.70 fb-1. We find 619 events after background subtraction. After a subtraction of 1.06+/-.09 charged pions coming from decays of known resonances to Λc + npi, we are left with 2.63+/-.21 additional charged pious in each of these events. This is significantly higher than the .5 popcorn mesons per bayon pair used in the current tuning of Pythia 6.2, the most widely used Monte Carlo generator. The extra mesons we find appear to be the first direct evidence of popcorn mesons, although some of them could be arising from hypothetical unresolved, unobserved charmed baryon resonances contributing decay mesons to our data. To contribute a significant fraction, this hypothesis requires a large number of such broad unresolved states and seems unlikely, but can not be completely excluded.

  7. Baryon Spectroscopy and Resonances

    2011-12-01

    A short review of current efforts to determine the highly excited state spectrum of QCD, and in particular baryons, using lattice QCD techniques is presented. The determination of the highly excited spectrum of QCD is a major theoretical and experimental challenge. The experimental investigation of the excited baryon spectrum has been a long-standing element of the hadronic-physics program, an important component of which is the search for so-called 'missing resonances', baryonic states predicted by the quark model based on three constituent quarks but which have not yet been observed experimentally. Should such states not be found, it may indicate that the baryon spectrum can be modeled with fewer effective degrees of freedom, such as in quark-diquark models. In the past decade, there has been an extensive program to collect data on electromagnetic production of one and two mesons at Jefferson Lab, MIT-Bates, LEGS, MAMI, ELSA, and GRAAL. To analyze these data, and thereby refine our knowledge of the baryon spectrum, a variety of physics analysis models have been developed at Bonn, George Washington University, Jefferson Laboratory and Mainz. To provide a theoretical determination and interpretation of the spectrum, ab initio computations within lattice QCD have been used. Historically, the calculation of the masses of the lowest-lying states, for both baryons and mesons, has been a benchmark calculation of this discretized, finite-volume computational approach, where the aim is well-understood control over the various systematic errors that enter into a calculation; for a recent review. However, there is now increasing effort aimed at calculating the excited states of the theory, with several groups presenting investigations of the low-lying excited baryon spectrum, using a variety of discretizations, numbers of quark flavors, interpolating operators, and fitting methodologies. Some aspects of these calculations remain unresolved and are the subject of

    The structure of baryon resonance in coupled-channel meson-baryon scattering is studied from the viewpoint of chiral dynamics. The meson-baryon scattering amplitude can be successfully described together with the properties of the resonance in the scattering, by implementing the unitarity condition for the amplitude whose low energy structure is constrained by chiral theorem. Recently, there have been a major progress in the study of the structure of the resonance in chiral dynamics. We revie...

    We observe a signal for the doubly charmed baryon Xi_cc^+ in the charged decay mode Xi_cc^+ --> Lambda_c^+ K- pi+ in data from SELEX, the charm hadro-production experiment at Fermilab. We observe an excess of 15.9 events over an expected background of 6.1 \\pm 0.5 events, a statistical significance of 6.3sigma. The observed mass of this state is (3519 \\pm 1) MeV/c^2. The Gaussian mass width of this state is 3MeV/c^2, consistent with resolution; its lifetime is less than 33fsec at 90% confidence.

    We present the ground and excited state spectra of doubly charmed baryons from lattice QCD with dynamical quark fields. Calculations are performed on anisotropic lattices of size 16^3 X 128, with inverse spacing in temporal direction 1/a_t = 5.67(4) GeV and with a pion mass of about 390 MeV. A large set of baryonic operators that respect the symmetries of the lattice yet which retain a memory of their continuum analogues are used. These operators transform as irreducible representations of SU(3) symmetry for flavor, SU(4) symmetry for Dirac spins of quarks and O(3) for spatial symmetry. The distillation method is utilized to generate baryon correlation functions which are analysed using the variational fitting method to extract excited states. The lattice spectra obtained have baryonic states with well-defined total spins up to 7/2 and the pattern of low lying states does not support the diquark picture for doubly charmed baryons. On the contrary the calculated spectra are remarkably similar to the expectatio...

    This study presents the ground and excited state spectra of doubly charmed baryons from lattice QCD with dynamical quark fields. Calculations are performed on anisotropic lattices of size 16³ × 128, with inverse spacing in temporal direction at⁻¹=5.67(4) GeV and with a pion mass of about 390 MeV. A large set of baryonic operators that respect the symmetries of the lattice yet which retain a memory of their continuum analogues are used. These operators transform as irreducible representations of SU(3)F symmetry for flavor, SU(4) symmetry for Dirac spins of quarks and O(3) for spatial symmetry. The distillation method is utilized to generate baryon correlation functions which are analyzed using the variational fitting method to extract excited states. The lattice spectra obtained have baryonic states with well-defined total spins up to 7/2 and the pattern of low-lying states does not support the diquark picture for doubly charmed baryons. On the contrary the calculated spectra are remarkably similar to the expectations from models with an SU(6)×O(3) symmetry. Various spin-dependent energy splittings between the extracted states are also evaluated.

    We investigate the decays of the charmed baryons aiming at the systematic understanding of hadron internal structures based on the quark model by paying attention to heavy quark symmetry. We evaluate the decay widths from the one pion emission for the known excited states, \\Lambda_c^*(2595), \\Lambda_c^*(2625), \\Lambda_c^*(2765), \\Lambda_c^*(2880) and \\Lambda_c^*(2940), as well as for the ground states \\Sigma_c(2455) and \\Sigma_c^*(2520). The decay properties of the lower excited charmed baryons are well explained, and several important predictions for higher excited baryons are given. We find that the axial-vector type coupling of the pion to the light quarks is essential, which is expected from chiral symmetry, to reproduce the decay widths especially of the low lying \\Lambda_c^* baryons. We emphasize the importance of the branching ratios of \\Gamma(\\Sigma_c^*\\pi)/\\Gamma(\\Sigma_c\\pi) for the study of the nature of higher excited \\Lambda_c^* baryons.

    The SELEX experiment (E781) at Fermilab has candidates for high mass states decaying to Lambda_c+ K- pi+ and Lambda_c+ K- pi+ pi+, Cabibbo-allowed decay modes of doubly-charmed baryons Xi_cc+ and Xi_cc++. The masses are consistent with theoretical considerations, but the spectroscopy is surprising. Limited lifetime information suggests that tau_{Xi_cc++} \\sim tau_{Xi_cc+}.

  14. Exotic charmed baryon production in ultrarelativistic heavy ion collisions

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The authors investigate multi-heavy baryon formation in Au + Au collision using an extended version of the combinatoric break up model for rehadronization. A penalty factor, p, is introduced to characterize the coalescence probability of a light quark with a heavy one. At LHC energy large production rate is found for certain multi-heavy baryons and mesons such as Ωccc, Ξcc, J/Ψ and suppression for Λc, D. They speculate also on the possible existence of a heavy bottom-charm six-quark baryon. A semiclassical and a gaussian estimate reveal that the octet-octet bbb-cc configuration can be energetically favored with respect to the singlet-singlet one

    Assuming a heavy quark-light diquark picture, we systematically study the mass spectra and strong decays of $1P$ and $2S$ charm and charm-strange baryons by the nonrelativistic constituent quark models. Most of the existing charm and charm-strange baryons can be well explained as $1P$ and $2S$ states in the diquark picture. As for the well-determined states, including $\\Sigma_c(2455)^{0,+,++}$, $\\Sigma_c(2520)^{0,+,++}$, $\\Xi^\\prime_c(2580)^{0,+}$, $\\Xi_c(2645)^{0,+}$, $\\Lambda_c(2595)^+$, $\\Lambda_c(2625)^+$, $\\Xi_c(2790)^{0,+}$, and $\\Xi_c(2815)^{0,+}$, the theoretical results are in good agreement with the experimental data. $\\Sigma_c(2800)^{0,+,++}$ can be assigned to a $\\Sigma_{c2}(3/2^-)$ or $\\Sigma_{c2}(5/2^-)$ state. We prefer to interpret the signal $\\Sigma_c(2850)^0$ as a $2S(1/2^+)$ state although the possibility can not be thoroughly excluded at present that this is the same state as $\\Sigma_c(2800)^0$. $\\Lambda_c(2765)^+$ (or $\\Sigma_c(2765)^+$) could be explained as the $\\Lambda_c^+(2S)$ state a...

  16. Progress Toward Understanding Baryon Resonances

    CERN Document Server

    Crede, Volker

    2013-01-01

    The composite nature of baryons manifests itself in the existence of a rich spectrum of excited states, in particular in the important mass region 1-2 GeV for the light-flavoured baryons. The properties of these resonances can be identified by systematic investigations using electromagnetic and strong probes, primarily with beams of electrons, photons, and pions. After decades of research, the fundamental degrees of freedom underlying the baryon excitation spectrum are still poorly understood. The search for hitherto undiscovered but predicted resonances continues at many laboratories around the world. Recent results from photo- and electroproduction experiments provide intriguing indications for new states and shed light on the structure of some of the known nucleon excitations. The continuing study of available data sets with consideration of new observables and improved analysis tools have also called into question some of the earlier findings in baryon spectroscopy. Other breakthrough measurements have be...

    2015-01-01

    Potential models of the interaction between a charmed baryon ($Y_c$) and the nucleon ($N$) are constructed on the basis of a long-range meson ($\\pi$ and $\\sigma$) exchange potential as well as a short-distance quark exchange interaction. The quark cluster model is used to evaluate the short-range repulsion between $Y_c$ and $N$, while the meson exchange potentials are modified by a form factor at short distances. We determine the cutoff parameters of the form factors so as to fit the $NN$ scattering data with the same approach. The ground state charmed baryons, $\\Lambda_c$, $\\Sigma_c$ and $\\Sigma_c^*$, are included as $Y_c$, and channel couplings of relevant $Y_c N$ channels are taken into account. We propose four sets of parameters (a -- d), among which the most attractive potential (d) predicts bound $\\Lambda_c N$ $J^\\pi= 0^+$ and $1^+$ states. In order to apply the potential to a many-body problem, we construct an effective $\\Lambda_c N$ one-channel potential for the parameter set (d). It is applied to the...

    A search for the doubly charmed baryon $\\Xi_{cc}^{+}$ in the decay mode $\\Xi_{cc}^{+} \\to \\Lambda_c^+ K^- \\pi^+$ is performed with a data sample, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 0.65 fb$^{-1}$, of $pp$ collisions recorded at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV. No significant signal is found in the mass range 3300--3800 MeV$/c^2$. Upper limits at the 95\\% confidence level on the ratio of the $\\Xi_{cc}^{+}$ production cross-section times branching fraction to that of the $\\Lambda_c^+$, $R$, are given as a function of the $\\Xi_{cc}^{+}$ mass and lifetime. The largest upper limits range from $R<1.5 \\times 10^{-2}$ for a lifetime of 100 fs to $R<3.9 \\times 10^{-4}$ for a lifetime of 400 fs.

    We discuss recent calculations of electromagnetic form factors and strong decay widths of nucleon and delta resonances. The calculations are done in a collective constituent model of the nucleon, in which the baryons are interpreted as rotations and vibrations of an oblate top.

  20. Study of B-Meson Decays to Final States with a Single Charm Baryon

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Majewski, Stephanie A. [Stanford Univ., CA (United States)

    2007-08-01

    A study of B-meson decays to final states with a single charm baryon is presented based on data recorded by the BABAR detector at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. Although the B meson is the lightest bottom-flavored meson, it is heavy enough to decay to a baryon made of three quarks and an antibaryon made of three antiquarks. By studying the baryonic weak decays of the B meson, we can investigate baryon production mechanisms in heavy meson decays. In particular, we measure the rates of the decays B- → Λ+c$\\bar{p}$π- and $\\bar{B}$0 → Λ+c$\\bar{p}$. Comparing these rates, we confirm an observed trend in baryonic B decays that the decay with the lower energy release, B- → Λ+c$\\bar{p}$π-, is favored over $\\bar{B}$0 → Λ+c$\\bar{p}$. The dynamics of the baryon-antibaryon (Λ+c$\\bar{p}$) system in the three-body decay also provide insight into baryon-antibaryon production mechanisms. The B- → Λ+c$\\bar{p}$π- system is a laboratory for searches for excited #c baryon states; we observe the resonant decays B- → Σc(2455) 0$\\bar{p}$ and B- → Σc(2800) 0$\\bar{p}$. This is the first observation of the decay B- → Σc(2800) 0$\\bar{p}$; however, the mass of the observed #c(2800)0 state is inconsistent with previous measurements. Finally, we examine the angular distribution of the B- → Σc(2455) 0$\\bar{p}$ decays and measure the spin of the B- → Σc(2455) 0$\\bar{p}$ baryon to be J = 1/2, as predicted by the quark model.

  1. Production of charmed baryon $\\Lambda_c(2940)^+$ at PANDA

    2011-01-01

    In this work we evaluate the production rate of the charmed baryon $\\Lambda_c(2940)^+$ at PANDA. For possible assignments of $\\Lambda_c(2940)^+$: $J^P=1/2^\\pm$, $3/2^\\pm$ and $5/2^\\pm$, the total cross section of $p\\bar{p}\\to \\bar{\\Lambda}_c \\Lambda_c(2940)^+$ is estimated, which may exceed 1 nb. With the designed luminosity ($2\\times10^{-32}$cm$^{-2}$/s) of PANDA, our estimate indicates that ten thousand events per day if $\\Lambda_c(2940)^+$ is of $J^P=1/2^+$ or $10^8$ per day if it is of $J^P=5/2^+$ can be expected. Those values actually set the lower and upper limits of the $\\Lambda_c(2940)^+$ production. In addition, we present the Dalitz plot and carry out a rough background analysis of the $\\Lambda_c(2940)^+$ production in the $p\\bar{p}\\to D^0 p\\bar{\\Lambda}_c$ and $p\\bar{p}\\to \\Sigma_c^{0,++}\\pi^{+,-}\\bar{\\Lambda}_c$ processes, which would provide valuable information for accurate determination of the $\\Lambda_c(2940)^+$ identity.

  2. Search for the Charmed Strange Baryon A$^{o}$

    CERN Multimedia

    2002-01-01

    The aim of the experiment is to search for inclusive production of the charmed strange baryon A|0 using @S|- with a momentum of 135 GeV/c on a Be-target. A|0 with lab-momenta between 70-120 GeV/c will be accepted, corresponding to X(A|0) $>$ 0.5. \\\\ \\\\ The apparatus is a modified version of the one used for WA42. The incoming @S|- are identified by a DISC Cerenkov counter. The A|0 detection is restricted to decay channels which contains only charged particles in the final state (e.g. A|0 @A @L K|-@p|+). \\\\ \\\\ The decay products are analysed in a magnetic spectrometer equipped with multiwire proportional chambers (B,C,D,E) and drift chambers (DC). Two multicell gas Cerenkov counters (C1,C2) allow the separation of K's and p's from @p's. A second magnet (SM2) reduces the geometrical overlap of @p's and heavier particles in the Cerenkov counters due to their different momentum spectra. The scintillator hodoscopes H^4 and H^5 and the chambers E and F behind SM2 allow a geometrical correlation of tracks with the C...

    We present the first evidence for B semileptonic decays into the charmed baryon {Lambda}{sub c}{sup +} based on 420 fb{sup -1} of data collected at the {Upsilon}(4S) resonance with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II e{sup +}e{sup -} storage rings. Events are tagged by fully reconstructing one of the B mesons in a hadronic decay mode. We measure the relative branching fraction {Beta}({bar B} {yields} {Lambda}{sub c}{sup +} X{ell}{sup -}{bar {nu}}{sub {ell}})/{Beta}({bar B} {yields} {Lambda}{sub c}{sup +}/{bar {Lambda}}{sub c}{sup -}X) = (3.2 {+-} 0.9{sub stat.} {+-} 0.9{sub syst.})%. The significance of the signal including the systematic uncertainty is 4.9 standard deviations.

  4. Masses of doubly charmed baryons in the extended on-mass-shell renormalization scheme

    CERN Document Server

    Sun, Zhi-Feng

    2016-01-01

    In this work, we investigate the mass corrections of the doubly charmed baryons up to $N^2LO$ in the extended-on-mass-shell (EOMS) renormalization scheme, comparing with the results of heavy baryon chiral perturbation theory. We find that the terms from the heavy baryon approach are a subset of those obtained in the EOMS scheme. By fitting the lattice data, we can determine the parameters $\\tilde{m}$, $\\alpha$, $c_1$ and $c_7$ from the Lagrangian, while in the heavy baryon approach no information on $c_1$ can be obtained from the baryons mass. Correspondingly, the masses of $m_{\\Xi_{cc}}$ and $m_{\\Omega_{cc}}$ are predicted, in the EOMS scheme, extrapolating the results from different values of the charm quark and the pion masses of the lattice QCD calculations.

    2007-10-30

    We present a study of excited charm-strange baryon states produced in e{sup +}e{sup -} annihilations at or near a center-of-mass energy of 10.58 GeV, in a data sample with an integrated luminosity of 384 fb{sup -1} recorded with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II e+e storage rings at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. We study strong decays of charm-strange baryons to {Lambda}{sub c}{sup +}K{sub S}{sup 0}, {Lambda}{sub c}{sup +}K{sup -}, {Lambda}{sub c}{sup +}K{sup -}{pi}{sup +}, {Lambda}{sub c}{sup +}K{sub S}{sup 0}{pi}{sup -}, {Lambda}{sub c}{sup +}K{sub S}{sup 0}{pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup +}, {Lambda}{sub c}{sup +}K{sup -}{pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup +}. This study confirms the existence of the states {Xi}{sub c}(2980){sup +}, {Xi}{sub c}(3077){sup +}, and {Xi}{sub c}(3077){sup -}, with a more accurate determination of the {Xi}{sub c}(2980){sup +} mass and width. We also present evidence for two new states, {Xi}{sub c}(3055){sup +} and {Xi}{sub c}(3123){sup +}, decaying through the intermediate resonant modes {Sigma}{sub c}(2455){sup ++}K{sup -} and {Sigma}{sub c}(2520){sup ++}K{sup -}, respectively. For each of these baryons, we measure the yield in each final state, determine the statistical significance, and calculate the product of the production cross-section and branching fractions. We also measure the masses and widths of these excited charm-strange baryons.

    We search for the production of doubly charmed baryons in e^+e^- annihilations at or near a center-of-mass energy of 10.58 GeV, in a data sample with an integrated luminosity of 232 fb^-1 recorded with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II storage ring at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. We search for Xi_cc^+ baryons in the final states Lambda_c^+K^-pi^+ and Xi_c^0pi^+, and Xi_cc^++ baryons in the final states Lambda_c^+K^-pi^+pi^+ and Xi_c^0pi^+pi^+. We find no evidence for the production of doubly charmed baryons.

    A study of quasielastic production of charmed baryons in charged- current interactions of neutrinos with the nuclear emulsion target of CHORUS is presented. In a sample of about 46 000 interactions located in the emulsion, candidates for decays of short-lived particles were identified by using new automatic scanning systems and later confirmed through visual inspection. Criteria based both on the topological and kinematical characteristics of quasielastic charm production allowed a clear separation between events of this type and those in which charm is produced in deep inelastic processes. A final sample containing 13 candidates consistent with quasielastic production of a charmed baryon with an estimated background of 1.7 events was obtained. At the average neutrino energy of 27 GeV the cross-section for the total quasielastic production of charmed baryons relative to the nu N charged-current cross-section was measured to be sigma (QE)/ sigma (CC)=(0.23/sub -0.06//sup +0.12 /(stat)/sub -0.03//sup + /0/sup ....

    The masses of the low-lying strange and charm baryons are evaluated using two degenerate flavors of twisted mass sea quarks for pion masses in the range of about 260 MeV to 450 MeV. The strange and charm valence quark masses are tuned to reproduce the mass of the kaon and D-meson at the physical point. The tree-level Symanzik improved gauge action is employed. We use three values of the lattice spacing, corresponding to {beta}=3.9, {beta}=4.05 and {beta}=4.2 with r{sub 0}/a=5.22(2), r{sub 0}/a=6.61(3) and r{sub 0}/a=8.31(5) respectively. We examine the dependence of the strange and charm baryons on the lattice spacing and strange and charm quark masses. The pion mass dependence is studied and physical results are obtained using heavy baryon chiral perturbation theory to extrapolate to the physical point.

  10. Flavor structure of $\\Lambda$ baryons from lattice QCD - from strange to charm

    $\\Lambda$ baryons of spin-parity $\\frac{1}{2}^{\\pm}$ with either a strange or charm valence quark are studied in full 2+1 flavor lattice QCD. Multiple $SU(3)$ singlet and octet operators are employed to generate the desired single baryon states on the lattice. Via the variational method, the couplings of these states to the different operators provide information about the flavor structure of the $\\Lambda$ baryons. We make use of the gauge configurations of the PACS-CS collaboration and chirally extrapolate the results for the masses and $SU(3)$ flavor components to the physical point. We furthermore gradually change the hopping parameter of the heaviest quark from strange to charm to study how the properties of the $\\Lambda$ baryons evolve as a function of the heavy quark mass. It is found that the baryon energy levels increase almost linearly with the quark mass. Meanwhile, the flavor structure of most of the states remains stable, with the exception of the lowest $\\frac{1}{2}^{-}$ state, which changes from...

    We compute the mass spectrum for strange/charmed baryons in the partially quenched approach using N_f=2 twisted mass QCD configurations. We investigate two main issues: the size of lattice artefacts using three values of the lattice spacing (the smallest of which is approximately 0.05 fm) and the dependence of baryon masses on meson (or quark) masses. We thus perform a global fit in order to extrapolate simultaneously to the continuum limit and to the physical point. We estimate the masses of Omega_{sss}, Xi_{dss}, Lambda_{uds}, Omega_{ccc}, Xi_{dcc}, Lambda_{udc}.

    2013-01-01

    We present the ground and excited state spectra of doubly and triply-charmed baryons by using lattice QCD with dynamical clover fermions. A large set of baryonic operators that respect the symmetries of the lattice and are obtained after subduction from their continuum analogues are utilized. Using novel computational techniques correlation functions of these operators are generated and the variational method is exploited to extract excited states. The lattice spectra that we obtain have baryonic states with well-defined total spins up to 7/2 and the low lying states remarkably resemble the expectations of quantum numbers from SU(6) $\\otimes$ O(3) symmetry. Various energy splittings between the extracted states, including splittings due to hyperfine as well as spin-orbit coupling, are considered and those are also compared against similar energy splittings at other quark masses. Using those splittings for doubly-charmed baryons, and taking input of experimental $B_c$ meson mass, we predict the mass splittings...

    We report the first observation of an excited singly-charm baryon OmegaC* (css) in the radiative decay OmegaC0 Gamma, where the OmegaC0 baryon is reconstructed in the decays to the final states Omega-pi+, Omega-pi+pi0, Omega-pi+pi-pi+, and Cascade-K-pi+pi+. This analysis is performed using a dataset of 230.7 fb$-1} collected by the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy B Factory at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. The mass difference between the OmegaC* and the OmegaC0 baryons is measured to be 70.8 +/- 1.0 (stat) +/- 1.1 (syst) MeV/c2. We also measure the ratio of inclusive production cross sections of OmegaC* and OmegaC0 in e+e- annihilation.

    Using data collected in the region of the Υ(4S) resonance with the CLEO II detector operating at the Cornell Electron Storage Ring (CESR), we present the first observation of B mesons decaying into the charmed strange baryons Ξ0c and Ξ+c . We find 79±27 Ξ0c and 125±28 Ξ+c candidates from B decays, leading to product branching fractions of B(bar B→Ξ0cX)B(Ξ0c→Ξ-π+)= (0.144±0.048 ±0.021) x10-3 and B(bar B→Ξ+cX)B(Ξ+C→ Ξ-π+π+) =(0.453± 0.096+0.085-0.065)x 10-3 . copyright 1997 The American Physical Society

  17. Results on charmed baryons and mesons from the SLAC-LBL Mark II detector at SPEAR

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Results from the SLAC-LBL Mark II detector at SPEAR are presented. A few of the very recent results are emphasized, namely: (1) The observation of charmed baryons; a signal Λ/sub c/ → pK-π+ and the charge conjugate of that channel, anti Λ/sub c/ → anti pK+π- are now established. Some evidence also exists for other channels, K/sub S/p, Λπ+, etc. (2) The study of charmed mesons. Here some new hadronic decay modes are mentioned, and the Cabibbo-suppressed decay modes. (3) The D+ - D0 lifetime ratio; evidence is presented that the D+ has a longer lifetime than the D0 by about a factor of three, although the statistical error is fairly large on this number

  19. Exotic baryon resonances in the Skyrme model

    Diakonov, Dmitri

    2008-01-01

    We outline how one can understand the Skyrme model from the modern perspective. We review the quantization of the SU(3) rotations of the Skyrmion, leading to the exotic baryons that cannot be made of three quarks. It is shown that in the limit of large number of colours the lowest-mass exotic baryons can be studied from the kaon-Skyrmion scattering amplitudes, an approach known after Callan and Klebanov. We follow this approach and find, both analytically and numerically, a strong Theta+ resonance in the scattering amplitude that is traced to the rotational mode. The Skyrme model does predict an exotic resonance Theta+ but grossly overestimates the width. To understand better the factors affecting the width, it is computed by several methods giving, however, identical results. In particular, we show that insofar as the width is small, it can be found from the transition axial constant. The physics leading to a narrow Theta+ resonance is briefly reviewed and affirmed.

    We report measurements of the charm-anticharm production asymmetries for $\\Lambda_c^+$, $\\Sigma_c^{++}$, $\\Sigma_c^0$, $\\Sigma_c^{++*}$, $\\Sigma_c^{0*}$, and $\\Lambda_c^+(2625)$ baryons from the Fermilab photoproduction experiment FOCUS (E831). These asymmetries are integrated over the region where the spectrometer has good acceptance. In addition, we have obtained results for the photoproduction asymmetries of the $\\Lambda_c$ baryons as functions of $p_L$, $p_T^2$, and $x_F$. The integrated asymmetry for $\\Lambda_c^+$ production, $(\\sigma_{\\Lambda_c^+} - \\sigma_{\\Lambda_c^-}) / (\\sigma_{\\Lambda_c^+} + \\sigma_{\\Lambda_c^-})$, is $0.111 \\pm 0.018 \\pm 0.012$, significantly different from zero. The asymmetries of the excited states are consistent with the $\\Lambda_c$ asymmetry.

    Longitudinal and transverse transition form factors for most of the four-star nucleon resonances have been obtained from high-quality cross section data and polarization observables measured at MAMI, ELSA, BATES, GRAAL and CEBAF. As an application, we further show how the transition form factors can be used to obtain empirical transverse charge densities. Contour plots of the thus derived densities are shown and compared for the Roper and S11 nucleon resonances.

    The hadronic decay widths and some ratios of branching fractions of the newly observed charmed strange baryons, $\\Xi_c(3055)^0$, $\\Xi_c(3055)^+$ and $\\Xi_c(3080)^+$ are calculated in a $^3P_0$ model. In the calculation, they are considered as $34$ kinds of $D-wave$ charmed strange baryons. Among these assignments, $\\Xi_c(3055)^0$ and $\\Xi_c(3055)^+$ are very possibly a $J^P={1\\over 2}^+$ isospin partners: $\\Xi_{c1}^{' }(\\frac{1}{2}^+)$. In this assignment, the predicted ratios $\\Gamma(\\Xi_c(3055)^0 \\to \\Lambda D^0 )/ \\Gamma(\\Xi_c(3055)^0 \\to \\Sigma_c^{+}K^-)=5.08$ and $\\Gamma(\\Xi_c(3055)^+ \\to \\Lambda D^+ )/ \\Gamma(\\Xi_c(3055)^+ \\to \\Sigma_c^{++}K^-)=4.69$. The results agree well with recent experimental data from Belle. $\\Xi_c(3080)^+$ is possibly a $\\check\\Xi_{c1}^{\\ 0}(\\frac{1}{2}^+)$ with $J^P={1\\over 2}^+$, which has a larger decay width in $\\Lambda D^+$ mode.

    2016-08-01

    The axial couplings of the low lying baryons are evaluated using a total of five ensembles of dynamical twisted mass fermion gauge configurations. The simulations are performed using the Iwasaki gauge action and two degenerate flavors of light quarks, and a strange and a charm quark fixed to approximately their physical values at two values of the coupling constant. The lattice spacings, determined using the nucleon mass, are a =0.082 fm and a =0.065 fm , and the simulations cover a pion mass in the range of about 210 MeV to 430 MeV. We study the dependence of the axial couplings on the pion mass in the range of about 210 MeV to 430 MeV as well as the SU(3) breaking effects as we decrease the light quark mass toward its physical value.

  6. Measurement of the Λc charmed baryon production and the study of the Λc baryon semi-leptonic decays by the DELPHI experiment at LEP

    By using the data accumulated in the DELPHI experiment from 1992 to 1994 we present the results of the production rate measurement of Λc charmed baryons generated in the bb-bar and cc-bar events. For these measurements we reconstructed entirely the Λc baryons decaying in pKπ. Then we select a set of bottom baryons Λb0 by means of its semi-leptonic decays in Λc+l-νl-bar. The study of distribution of these events as a function of the transfer momentum allowed estimating for the first time the slope of the Λb0 form factor. (author)

    We obtain the properties of charmed mesons in dense matter using a coupled-channel approach which accounts for Pauli blocking effects and meson self-energies in a self-consistent manner. We study the behaviour of dynamically-generated baryonic resonances together with the open-charm meson spectral functions in this dense nuclear environment. We discuss the implications of the in-medium properties of open-charm mesons on the $D_{s0}(2317)$ and the predicted X(3700) scalar resonances, and on the formation of $D$-mesic nuclei.

    We predict several new bound states and resonances for B-pion, B-Kaon, and B-D S-wave elastic scattering, within the same model which was recently employed to explain the D*sJ(2317)+ meson. In the charm-nonstrange sector we find a (virtual ?) bound state close to the B-pion threshold, and moreover two nearby resonances of comparable width in the range 5.9 to 6.1 GeV. We obtain bound states B*s0(5570) in b-sbar and B*c0(6490) in bbar-c, as well as resonances at higher energies. No JP=0+ states are found at 5.6 GeV (in bbar-u/d), at 5.7 GeV (in b-sbar), or at 6.1 GeV (in bbar-c), where they are predicted from pure confinement.

    The s-wave interaction of anti DΛ{sub c}, anti DΣ{sub c}, anti D{sup *}Λ{sub c}, anti D{sup *}Σ{sub c} and anti DΣ{sub c}{sup *}, anti D{sup *}Σ{sub c}{sup *}, is studied within a unitary coupled channels scheme with the extended local hidden gauge approach. In addition to the Weinberg-Tomozawa term, several additional diagrams via the pion exchange are also taken into account as box potentials. Furthermore, in order to implement the full coupled channels calculation, some of the box potentials which mix the vector-baryon and pseudoscalar-baryon sectors are extended to construct the effective transition potentials. As a result, we have observed six possible states in several angular momenta. Four of them correspond to two pairs of admixture states, two of anti DΣ{sub c} - anti D{sup *}Σ{sub c} with J = 1/2, and two of anti DΣ{sub c}{sup *} - anti D{sup *}Σ{sub c}{sup *} with J = 3/2. Moreover, we find a anti D{sup *}Σ{sub c} resonance which couples to the anti DΛ{sub c} channel and one spin degenerated bound state of anti D{sup *}Σ{sub c}{sup *} with J = 1/2,5/2. (orig.)

  15. The hidden charm pentaquarks are the hidden color-octet $uud$ baryons?

    The $I(J^P)={1\\over 2}({1\\over 2}^-)$, ${1\\over 2}({3\\over 2}^-)$, and ${1\\over 2}({5\\over 2}^-)$ $uudc\\overline{c}$ pentaquarks are investigated by the quark cluster model. This model, which reproduces the mass spectra of the color-singlet $S$-wave $q^3$ baryons and $q\\overline{q}$ mesons, also enables us to evaluate the quark interaction in the color-octet $uud$ configurations. It is shown that the color-octet isospin-${1\\over 2}$ spin-${3\\over 2}$ $uud$ configuration gains attraction. The $uudc\\overline{c}$ states with this configuration cause structures around the $\\Sigma_c{}^{(*)}\\overline{D}{}^{(*)}$ thresholds: one bound state, two resonances, and one large cusp are found. We argue that the negative parity pentaquark found by the LHCb experiments may be given by these structures.

  17. Time delayed K sup + N reactions and exotic baryon resonances

    Kelkar, N G; Khemchandani, K P

    2003-01-01

    Evidence and hints, from both the theoretical and experimental sides, of exotic baryon resonances with B = S, have been with us for the last 30 years. The poor status of the general acceptance of these Z* resonances is partly due to the prejudice against penta-quark baryons and partly due to the opinion that a proof of the existence of exotic states must be rigorous. This can refer to the quality and amount of data gathered, and also to the analytical methods applied in the study of these resonances. It then seems mandatory that all possibilities and aspects be exploited. We do that by analysing the time delay in K sup + N scattering, encountering clear signals of the exotic Z* resonances close to the pole values found in partial wave analyses.

  18. Electroproduction of Baryon Resonances and Strangeness Suppression

    Santopinto, E; Tecocoatzi, H Garcia

    2016-01-01

    We describe the electroproduction ratios of baryon-meson states from nucleon using an extension of the quark model that takes into account the sea. As a result we provide, with no adjustable parameters, the predictions of ratios of exclusive meson-baryon final states: Lambda K , Sigma K, p pion, and n pion. These predictions are in agreement with the new Jlab experimental data showing that sea quarks play an important role in the electroproduction. We also predicted further ratios of exclusive reactions that can be measured and tested in future experiments. In particular, we suggested new experiments on deuterium and tritium. Such measurements can provide crucial test of different predictions concerning the structure of nucleon and its sea quarks helping to solve an outstanding problem. Finally, we computed the so called strangeness suppression factor, lambda s, that is the suppression of strange quark-antiquarks compared to nonstrange pairs, and we found that our finding with this simple extension of the qua...

    We report the first observation of the decay $\\Lambda^{+}_{c} \\rightarrow p K^{+} \\pi^{-}$ using a 980 $\\mathrm{fb^{-1}}$ data sample collected by the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy $e^{+}e^{-}$ collider. This is the first doubly Cabibbo-suppressed decay of a charmed baryon to be observed. We measure the branching ratio of this decay with respect to its Cabibbo-favored counterpart to be $\\mathcal{B}(\\Lambda^{+}_{c} \\rightarrow p K^{+} \\pi^{-})/\\mathcal{B}(\\Lambda^{+}_{c} \\rightarrow p K^{-} \\pi^{+})=(2.35\\pm0.27\\pm0.21)\\times10^{-3}$, where the uncertainties are statistical and systematic, respectively.

    We report the first observation of the decay Λ_{c}^{+}→pK^{+}π^{-} using a 980  fb^{-1} data sample collected by the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e^{+}e^{-} collider. This is the first observation of a doubly Cabibbo-suppressed decay of a charmed baryon. We measure the branching ratio of this decay with respect to its Cabibbo-favored counterpart to be B(Λ_{c}^{+}→pK^{+}π^{-})/B(Λ_{c}^{+}→pK^{-}π^{+})=(2.35±0.27±0.21)×10^{-3}, where the uncertainties are statistical and systematic, respectively.

    1998-01-01

    In this two part series a chiral confining model of baryons is used to describe low--lying negative parity resonances $N^*$, $\\Delta^*$, $\\Lambda^*$ and $\\Sigma^*$ in the mean field approximation. A physical baryon in this model consists of interacting valence quarks, mesons and a color and chiral singlet hybrid field coexisting inside a dynamically generated confining region. This first paper presents the quark contribution to the masses and wave functions of negative parity baryons calculated with an effective spin--isospin dependent instanton induced interaction. It does not include meson exchanges between quarks. The three--quark wave functions are used to calculate meson--excited baryon vertex functions to lowest order in meson--quark coupling. When the baryons are on mass--shell each of these vertex functions is a product of a coupling constant and a form factor. As examples, quark contributions to $N^*$ hadronic form factors as well as axial coupling constants are extracted from the vertex functions an...

    A resonance search has been made in the D^*+/- p^-/+ invariant-mass spectrum with the ZEUS detector at HERA using an integrated luminosity of 126 pb^-1. The decay channels D^*+ -> D^0 pi^+_s -> (K^- pi^+) pi^+_s and D^*+ -> D^0 pi^+_s -> (K^- pi^+ pi^+ pi^-) pi^+_s (and the corresponding antiparticle decays) were used to identify D^*+/- mesons. No resonance structure was observed in the D^*+/- p^-/+ mass spectrum from more than 60000 reconstructed D^*+/- mesons. The results are not compatible with a report of the H1 Collaboration of a charmed pentaquark, Theta^0_c.

    A search for charmed baryons decaying to $D^0 p$ reveals two states: the $\\Lambda_c(2880)^+$ baryon and a previously unobserved state at a mass of [$2939.8\\pm 1.3 \\text{(stat.)}\\pm 1.0 \\text{(syst.)}$]~\\mevcc and with an intrinsic width of [$17.5\\pm 5.2 \\text{(stat.)}\\pm 5.9 \\text{(syst.)}$]~\\mev. Consistent and significant signals are observed for the $K^-\\pi^+$ and $K^-\\pi^+\\pi^-\\pi^+$ decay modes of the $D^0$ in 287 ${\\rm fb}^{-1}$ annihilation data recorded by the BaBar detector at a center-of-mass energy of 10.58~${\\rm GeV}/c^2$. There is no evidence in the $D^+ p$ spectrum of doubly-charged partners. The mass and intrinsic width of the $\\Lambda_c(2880)^+$ baryon and relative yield of the two baryons are also measured.

  4. Masses of charm and beauty baryons in the constituent quark model

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The masses of the ground state heavy baryons are studied using the hypercentral approach. The considered potential is a combination of Coulombic, linear confining and harmonic oscillator terms. An improved form of the hyperfine interaction and isospin dependent quark potential is introduced. By solving the Schroedinger equation for three particles system, we calculate the ground state masses of the baryons containing one, two and three heavy quarks. The obtained results are very close to the ones obtained in experiments or in the other works. (author)

    In this work we construct a chiral SU(3) Lagrangian with D mesons of spin JP=0- and JP=1- and charmed baryons of spin JP=1 /2+ and JP=3 /2+. There are 42 leading two-body counterterms involving two charmed baryon fields and two D meson fields in the constructed Lagrangian. The heavy-quark spin symmetry leads to 35 sum rules, while the large-Nc operator analysis predicts 29 at the next-to leading order of the 1 /Nc expansion. The combination of the sum rules from both the heavy-quark symmetry and the large-Nc analysis results in 38 independent sum rules, which reduces the number of free parameters in the chiral Lagrangian to only four. This is a remarkable result demonstrating the consistency of the heavy-quark symmetry and large-Nc operator analysis.

    We construct, in the work, chiral $SU(3)$ Lagrangian with $D$ mesons of spin $J^P=0^-$ and $J^P=1^-$ and charmed baryons of spin $J^P=1/2^+$ and $J^P=3/2^+$. There are 42 leading two-body counter-terms involving two charmed baryon fields and two $D$ meson fields in the constructed Lagrangian. The heavy-quark spin symmetry leads to 35 sum rules while the large-$N_c$ operator analysis predicts 29 ones at the next-to leading order of $1/N_c$ expansion. The combination of the sum rules from both the heavy-quark symmetry and the large-$N_c$ analysis results in 38 independent sum rules which reduces the number of free parameters in the chiral Lagrangian down to 4 only. This is a remarkable result demonstrating the consistency of the heavy-quark symmetry and large-$N_c$ operator analysis.

    We investigate the possibility to study the charmed baryon $\\Lambda_c(2940)$ by kaon-induced reaction on a proton target. By assuming the $\\Lambda_c(2940)$ as a $pD^{*0}$ molecular state with spin-parity $J^{p}=1/2^{\\pm}$, an effective Lagrangian approach was adopted to calculate the cross section, the $D^0p$ invariant mass spectrum and Dalitz plot of the $\\Lambda(2940)$ production. The total cross section of the $K^{-}p\\to\\Lambda_c(2940)D_s^{-}$ reaction is found at an order of magnitude about 10 $\\mu$b. By considering the sub sequential decay $\\Lambda_c(2940)\\to{}D^0p$ with contributions from the $\\Lambda_c(2286)$ and the $\\Sigma_c(2455)$ as background, the $K^{-}p\\to{}D_{s}^{-}D^{0}p$ reaction are studied. It is found that the $\\Lambda_c(2940)$ is produced mainly at forward angles. The $\\Lambda_c(2940)$ signal is predicted to be significant in the $D^0p$ invariant mass spectrum and the Dalitz plot of the $K^{-}p\\to{}D_{s}^{-}D^{0}p$ reaction. The results suggest that it is promising to study the $\\Lambda_c...

    We present first results for masses of positive and negative parity excited baryons in lattice QCD using an O(a^2) improved gluon action and a Fat Link Irrelevant Clover (FLIC) fermion action in which only the irrelevant operators are constructed with fat links. The results are in agreement with earlier calculations of N^* resonances using improved actions and exhibit a clear mass splitting between the nucleon and its chiral partner, even for the Wilson fermion action. The results also indicate a splitting between the lowest J^P = 1/2^- states for the two standard nucleon interpolating fields.

  10. Baryon resonances without quarks: A chiral soliton perspective

    1987-03-01

    In many processes involving low momentum transfer it is fruitful to regard the nucleon as a soliton or ''monopole-like'' configuration of the pion field. In particular, within this framework it is possible to obtain detailed predictions for pion-nucleon scattering amplitudes and for properties of baryon resonances. One can also derive model-independent linear relations between scattering amplitudes, such as ..pi..N and anti KN. A short survey of some recent results is given, including comparison with experimental data.

  11. Charmed and strange baryon production in 29 GeV electron positron annihilation

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This dissertation presents measurements of the production rates of baryons with different strangeness and spin. The analyses presented here use data taken with the Mark III detector at the PEP storage ring, operating at a center of mass energy of 29 GeV. The Ξ/sup /minus// production rate is measured to be 0.017 +- 0.004 +- 0.004 per hadronic event, Ω/sup /minus// production is measured to be 0.014 +- 0.006 +- 0.004 per hadronic event, and Ξ*0 production is less than 0.006 per hadronic event at a 90% confidence level. These measurements place strong constraints on models of baryon production. In particular, the unexpectedly high rate of Ω/sup /minus// production is difficult to explain in any diquark based model. Semileptonic Λ/sub c/+ decays have also been observed. Because neither the branching ratios nor the production rate are well known, it is difficult to interpret these results. However, they do indicate that the branching ratio for Λ/sub c/+ → Λlν may be higher than previous experimental measurements. 85 refs., 45 figs., 12 tabs

    In this paper we examine the interaction of DN and D* N states, together with their coupled channels, by using an extension of the local hidden gauge formalism from the light meson sector, which is based on heavy quark spin symmetry. The scheme is based on the use of the impulse approximation at the quark level, with the heavy quarks acting as spectators, which occurs for the dominant terms where there is the exchange of a light meson. The pion exchange and the Weinberg-Tomozawa interactions are generalized and with this dynamics we look for states generated from the interaction, with a unitary coupled channels approach that mixes the pseudoscalar-baryon and vector-baryon states. We find two states with nearly zero width, which are associated to the Λ{sub c} (2595) and Λ{sub c} (2625). The lower state, with J{sup P} = 1/2{sup -}, couples to DN and D* N, and the second one, with J{sup P} = 3/2{sup -}, to D* N. In addition to these two Λ{sub c} states, we find four more states with I = 0, one of them nearly degenerate in two states of J{sup P} = 1/2, 3/2. Furthermore we find three states in I = 1, two of them degenerate in J = 1/2, 3/2. (orig.)

    We study the properties of strange and charm mesons in hot and dense matter within a self-consistent coupled-channel approach for the experimental conditions of density and temperature expected for the CBM experiment at FAIR/GSI. The in-medium solution at finite temperature accounts for Pauli blocking effects, mean-field binding of all the baryons involved, and meson self-energies. We analyze the behaviour in this hot and dense environment of dynamically-generated baryonic resonances together with the evolution with density and temperature of the strange and open-charm meson spectral functions. We test the spectral functions for strange mesons using energy-weighted sum rules and finally discuss the implications of the properties of charm mesons on the D_{s0}(2317) and the predicted X(3700) scalar resonances.

    We present a formulation of the compositeness for baryonic resonances in order to discuss the meson-baryon molecular structure inside the resonances. For this purpose, we derive a relation between the residue of the scattering amplitude at the resonance pole position and the two-body wave function of the resonance in a sophisticated way, and we define the compositeness as the norm of the two-body wave functions. As applications, we investigate the compositeness of the $\\Delta (1232)$, $N (1535)$, and $N (1650)$ resonances from precise $\\pi N$ scattering amplitudes in a unitarized chiral framework with the interaction up to the next-to-leading order in chiral perturbation theory. The $\\pi N$ compositeness for the $\\Delta (1232)$ resonance is evaluated in the $\\pi N$ single-channel scattering, and we find that the $\\pi N$ component inside $\\Delta (1232)$ in the present framework is nonnegligible, which supports the previous work. On the other hand, the compositeness for the $N (1535)$ and $N (1650)$ resonances ...

    Two structures are observed close to the kinematic threshold in the Ξ(b)(0)π(-) mass spectrum in a sample of proton-proton collision data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.0  fb(-1), recorded by the LHCb experiment. In the quark model, two baryonic resonances with quark content bds are expected in this mass region: the spin-parity J(P)=(1/2)(+) and J(P)=(3/2)(+) states, denoted Ξ(b)('-) and Ξ(b)(*-). Interpreting the structures as these resonances, we measure the mass differences and the width of the heavier state to be m(Ξ(b)('-))-m(Ξ(b)(0))-m(π(-))=3.653±0.018±0.006  MeV/c(2), m(Ξ(b)(*-))-m(Ξ(b)(0))-m(π(-))=23.96±0.12±0.06  MeV/c(2), Γ(Ξ(b)(*-))=1.65±0.31±0.10  MeV, where the first and second uncertainties are statistical and systematic, respectively. The width of the lighter state is consistent with zero, and we place an upper limit of Γ(Ξ(b)('-))<0.08  MeV at 95% confidence level. Relative production rates of these states are also reported.

    Two structures are observed close to the kinematic threshold in the Ξ(b)(0)π(-) mass spectrum in a sample of proton-proton collision data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.0  fb(-1), recorded by the LHCb experiment. In the quark model, two baryonic resonances with quark content bds are expected in this mass region: the spin-parity J(P)=(1/2)(+) and J(P)=(3/2)(+) states, denoted Ξ(b)('-) and Ξ(b)(*-). Interpreting the structures as these resonances, we measure the mass differences and the width of the heavier state to be m(Ξ(b)('-))-m(Ξ(b)(0))-m(π(-))=3.653±0.018±0.006  MeV/c(2), m(Ξ(b)(*-))-m(Ξ(b)(0))-m(π(-))=23.96±0.12±0.06  MeV/c(2), Γ(Ξ(b)(*-))=1.65±0.31±0.10  MeV, where the first and second uncertainties are statistical and systematic, respectively. The width of the lighter state is consistent with zero, and we place an upper limit of Γ(Ξ(b)('-))<0.08  MeV at 95% confidence level. Relative production rates of these states are also reported.

  20. Resonant scattering and charm showers in ultrahigh-energy neutrino interactions

    Electron antineutrinos with energy of about 7 x 10 to the 6th GeV have much-enhanced cross sections due to W-boson production off electrons. Possible signals due to cosmic-ray sources are estimated. Higher-energy antineutrinos can efficiently produce a W accompanied by radiation. Another possibility, which could lead to shadowing at modest depths, is resonant production of a charged Higgs particle. The importance of muon production by charm showers in rock is pointed out.

  1. Baryon resonances in pion- and photon-induced hadronic reactions

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The aim of the present work is the analysis of the baryon spectrum in the medium-energy regime. At those energies, a perturbative treatment of Quantum Chromodynamics, that is feasible in the high-energy regime, is not possible. Chiral perturbation theory, the low-energy effective theory of the strong interaction, is limited to the lowest excited states and does not allow to analyze the complete resonance region. For the latter purpose, dynamical coupled-channel approaches provide an especially suited framework. In the present study, we apply the Juelich model, a dynamical coupled-channel model developed over the years, to analyze pion- and photon-induced hadronic reactions in a combined approach. In the Juelich model, the interaction of the mesons and baryons is built of t- and u-channel exchange diagrams based on an effective Lagrangian. Genuine resonances are included as s-channel states. The scattering potential is unitarized in a Lippmann-Schwinger-type equation. Analyticity is preserved, which is a prerequisite for a reliable extraction of resonance parameters in terms of pole positions and residues in the complex energy plane. Upon giving an introduction to the subject in Chap. 1 and showing selected results in Chap. 2, we will describe the simultaneous analysis of elastic πN scattering and the reactions π-p → ηn, K0Λ, K+Σ-, K0Σ0 and π+p→K+Σ+ within the Juelich framework in Chap. 3. The free parameters of the model are adjusted to the GWU/SAID analysis of elastic πN scattering and, in case of the inelastic reactions, to experimental data. Partial waves up to J=9/2 are included and we consider the world data set from threshold up to E∝2.3 GeV. We show our fit results compared to differential and total cross sections, to polarizations and to measurements of the spin-rotation parameter. Finally, we present the results of a pole search in the complex energy plane of the scattering amplitude and discuss the extracted resonance spectrum in the

    We study the interaction of the octet of vector mesons with the decuplet of baryons using Lagrangians of the hidden gauge theory for vector interactions. The unitary amplitudes in coupled channels develop poles that can be associated with some known baryonic resonances, while there are predictions for new ones at the energy frontier of the experimental research. The work offers guidelines on how to search for these resonances. (orig.)

    We investigate the structure of heavy baryons containing a charm or a bottom quark. We employ a constituent quark model successful in the description of the baryon-baryon interaction which is consistent with the light baryon spectra. We solve exactly the three-quark problem by means of the Faddeev method in momentum space. Heavy baryon spectrum shows a manifest compromise between perturbative and nonperturbative contributions. The flavor dependence of the one-gluon exchange is analyzed. We assign quantum numbers to some already observed resonances and we predict the first radial and orbital excitations of all states with $J=1/2$ or 3/2. We combine our results with heavy quark symmetry and lowest-order SU(3) symmetry breaking to predict the masses and quantum numbers of six still non-measured ground-state beauty baryons.

  5. Baryon resonances in the mean field approach and a simple explanation of the Theta+ pentaquark

    2008-01-01

    We suggest to classify baryon resonances as single-quark states in a mean field, and/or as its collective excitations. Identifying the Roper resonance N(1440), the nucleon resonance N(1535), and the singlet hyperon Lambda(1405) as single-quark excitations, we find that there must be an exotic S=+1 baryon resonance Theta+ (the "pentaquark") with a mass about 1440+1535-1405=1570 MeV and spin-parity one-half-plus. We argue that Theta+ is an analog of the Gamov--Teller excitation long known in nuclear physics.

    We report on some ideas concerning the nature of the X(3872) resonance and the need for approximately equal charged and neutral components of $D \\bar{D}^* +cc$. Then we discuss how some hidden charm states are obtained from the interaction between vector mesons with charm and can be associated to some of the charmonium-like X,Y,Z states. Finally we discuss how the nature of these states could be investigated through different types of radiative decay.

  7. Penta-quark States with Strangeness, Hidden Charm and Beauty

    The classical quenched quark models with three constituent quarks provide a good description for the baryon spatial ground states, but fail to reproduce the spectrum of baryon excited states. More and more evidences suggest that unquenched effects with multi-quark dynamics are necessary ingredients to solve the problem. Several new hyperon resonances reported recently could fit in the picture of penta-quark states. Based on this picture, some new hyperon excited states were predicted to exist; meanwhile with extension from strangeness to charm and beauty, super-heavy narrow $N^*$ and $\\Lambda^*$ resonances with hidden charm or beauty were predicted to be around 4.3 and 11 GeV, respectively. Recently, two of such $N^*$ with hidden charm might have been observed by the LHCb experiment. More of those states are expected to be observed in near future. This opens a new window in order to study hadronic dynamics for the multi-quark states.

This is the first observation of a doubly Cabibbo-suppressed decay of a charmed baryon. We measure the branching ratio of this decay with respect to its Cabibbo-favored counterpart to be B(Λ+c→pK+π-)/B(Λ+c→pK-π+)=(2.35±0.27±0.21)×10-3, where the uncertainties are statistical and systematic, respectively.

    The production of D*(2010)+ and J/ψ mesons and of prompt leptons has been investigated in e+e- interactions at the Υ(1S) resonance energy. The data were collected at the storage ring DORIS II at DESY with the ARGUS detector. We obtain upper limits of BRdir(Υ(1S)→D*(2010)±+X)p>0.2) and BRdir(Υ(1S)→J/ψ+X)-3, both at the 90% confidence level. From the prompt lepton analysis, a model dependent limit of BRdir(Υ(1S)→Yc+X)c denoting a charm-containing particle) is derived. (orig.)

  14. The melting and abundance of open charm hadrons

    2014-10-01

    Full Text Available Ratios of cumulants of conserved net charge fluctuations are sensitive to the degrees of freedom that are carriers of the corresponding quantum numbers in different phases of strong interaction matter. Using lattice QCD with 2+1 dynamical flavors and quenched charm quarks we calculate second and fourth order cumulants of net charm fluctuations and their correlations with other conserved charges such as net baryon number, electric charge and strangeness. Analyzing appropriate ratios of these cumulants we probe the nature of charmed degrees of freedom in the vicinity of the QCD chiral crossover region. We show that for temperatures above the chiral crossover transition temperature, charmed degrees of freedom can no longer be described by an uncorrelated gas of hadrons. This suggests that the dissociation of open charm hadrons and the emergence of deconfined charm states sets in just near the chiral crossover transition. Till the crossover region we compare these lattice QCD results with two hadron resonance gas models—including only the experimentally established charmed resonances and also including additional states predicted by quark model and lattice QCD calculations. This comparison provides evidence for so far unobserved charmed hadrons that contribute to the thermodynamics in the crossover region.

    A lattice QCD study of the strong decay width and coupling constant of decuplet baryons to an octet baryon-pion state is presented. The transfer matrix method is used to obtain the overlap of lattice states with decuplet baryon quantum numbers on the one hand and octet baryon-pion quantum numbers on the other as an approximation of the matrix element of the corresponding transition. By making use of leading-order effective field theory, the coupling constants as well as the widths for the various decay channels are determined. The transitions studied are Δ →π N , Σ*→Λ π , Σ*→Σ π and Ξ*→Ξ π . We obtain results for two ensembles of Nf=2 +1 dynamical fermion configurations: one using domain wall valence quarks on a staggered sea at a pion mass of 350 MeV and a box size of 3.4 fm and a second one using domain wall sea and valence quarks at pion mass 180 MeV and box size 4.5 fm.

    The role played by baryonic resonances in the production of final states containing strangeness for proton-proton reactions at 3.5 GeV measured by HADES is discussed by means of several very different measurements. First the associate production of Δ resonances accompanying final states with strange hadrons is presented, then the role of interferences among N{sup *} resonances, as measured by HADES for the first time, is summarised. Last but not least the role played by heavy resonances, with a mass larger than 2 GeV/c{sup 2} in the production of strange and non-strange hadrons is discussed. Experimental evidence for the presence of a Δ(2000){sup ++} are presented and hypotheses are discussed employing the contribution of similar objects to populate the excesses measured by HADES for the Ξ in A+A and p+A collisions and in the dilepton sector for A+A collisions. This extensive set of results helps to better understand the dynamic underlaying particle production in elementary reactions and sets a more solid basis for the understanding of heavy ion collisions at the same energies and even higher as planned at the FAIR facility.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We show that the radiative corrections containing terms up to order αq/πM1 for unpolarized semileptonic decays of baryons with positron emission can be obtained by simply reversing the sign of the axial-vector form factors in the corresponding final expressions of such decays with electron emission. This rule is valid regardless of the final kinematical variables chosen and of the particular Lorentz frame in which the final results are required

    We report on mass and lifetime measurements of several ground state charmed and bottom baryons, using a data sample corresponding to 9.6 fb-1 from pp ¯ collisions at √s =1.96 TeV and recorded with the Collider Detector at Fermilab. Baryon candidates are reconstructed from data collected with an online event selection designed for the collection of long-lifetime heavy-flavor decay products and a second event selection designed to collect J/ψ→ μ+μ- candidates. First evidence for the process Ωb-→Ωc0π- is presented with a significance of 3.3σ. We measure the following baryon masses: M(Ξc0) =2470.85±0.24(stat)±0.55(syst) MeV/c2,M(Ξc+)=2468.00±0.18(stat)±0.51(syst) MeV/c2,M(Λb)=5620.15±0.31(stat)±0.47(syst) MeV/c2,M(Ξb-)=5793.4±1.8(stat)±0.7(syst) MeV/c2,M(Ξb0)=5788.7±4.3(stat)±1.4(syst) MeV/c2,andM(Ωb-)=6047.5±3.8(stat)±0.6(syst) MeV/c2. The isospin splitting of the Ξb-,0 states is found to be M(Ξb-)-M(Ξb0)=4.7±4.7(stat)±0.7(syst) MeV /c2. The isospin splitting of the Ξc0,+ states is found to be M(Ξc0)-M(Ξc+)=2.85±0.30(stat)±0.04(syst) MeV /c2. The following lifetime measurements are made: τ(Λb)=1.565±0.035(stat)±0.020(syst) ps ,τ(Ξb-)=1.32±0.14(stat)±0.02(syst) ps ,τ(Ωb-)=1.66-0.40+0.53(stat)±0.02(syst) ps

  20. Pion-nucleon scattering in covariant baryon chiral perturbation theory with explicit Delta resonances

    We present the results of a third order calculation of the pion-nucleon scattering amplitude in a chiral effective field theory with pions, nucleons and delta resonances as explicit degrees of freedom. We work in a manifestly Lorentz invariant formulation of baryon chiral perturbation theory using dimensional regularization and the extended on-mass-shell renormalization scheme. In the delta resonance sector, the on mass-shell renormalization is realized as a complex-mass scheme. By fitting the low-energy constants of the effective Lagrangian to the S- and P -partial waves a satisfactory description of the phase shifts from the analysis of the Roy-Steiner equations is obtained. We predict the phase shifts for the D and F waves and compare them with the results of the analysis of the George Washington University group. The threshold parameters are calculated both in the delta-less and delta-full cases. Based on the determined low-energy constants, we discuss the pion-nucleon sigma term. Additionally, in order to determine the strangeness content of the nucleon, we calculate the octet baryon masses in the presence of decuplet resonances up to next-to-next-to-leading order in SU(3) baryon chiral perturbation theory. The octet baryon sigma terms are predicted as a byproduct of this calculation.

  1. The radiative charmed baryon decay $\\Xi_{c2}^{0}$ --> $\\Xi_{c1}^{0}$ $\\gamma$

    V-spin symmetry (s \\leftrightarrow d symmetry) forbids the radiative decay \\Xi_{c2}^{0*} \\rightarrow \\Xi_{c1}^0 \\gamma in the SU(3) limit. The quark mass term breaks V-spin symmetry and the leading nonanalytic contribution to the radiative decay amplitude is computable in heavy baryon chiral perturbation theory. The radiative decay branching ratio is determined by the coupling constant g_2 and at leading order in chiral perturbation theory is given by Br(\\Xi_{c2}^{0*} \\rightarrow \\Xi_{c1}^0 \\gamma) = 1.0\\times 10^{-3} g_2^2. Measurement of this branching fraction will determine |g_2|.

  2. Hadron resonance gas and mean-field nuclear matter for baryon number fluctuations

    CERN Document Server

    Fukushima, Kenji

    2014-01-01

    We give an estimate for the skewness and the kurtosis of the baryon number distribution in two representative models; i.e., models for a hadron resonance gas and relativistic mean-field nuclear matter. We emphasize formal similarity between these two descriptions. The hadron resonance gas leads to a deviation from the Skellam distribution if quantum statistical correlation is taken into account at high baryon density, but this effect is not strong enough to explain fluctuation data seen in the beam-energy scan at RHIC/STAR. In the calculation of mean-field nuclear matter the density correlation with the vector \\omega-field rather than the effective mass with the scalar \\sigma-field renders the kurtosis suppressed at higher baryon density so as to account for the observed behavior of the kurtosis. We finally discuss the difference between the baryon number and the proton number fluctuations from correlation effects in isospin space. Our numerical results suggest that such effects are only minor even in the cas...

  3. New Exotic Meson and Baryon Resonances from Doubly Heavy Hadronic Molecules.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Karliner, Marek; Rosner, Jonathan L

    2015-09-18

    We predict several new exotic doubly heavy hadronic resonances, inferring from the observed exotic bottomoniumlike and charmoniumlike narrow states X(3872), Z_{b}(10610), Z_{b}(10650), Z_{c}(3900), and Z_{c}(4020/4025). We interpret the binding mechanism as mostly molecularlike isospin-exchange attraction between two heavy-light mesons in a relative S-wave state. We then generalize it to other systems containing two heavy hadrons which can couple through isospin exchange. The new predicted states include resonances in meson-meson, meson-baryon, baryon-baryon, and baryon-antibaryon channels. These include those giving rise to final states involving a heavy quark Q=c,b and antiquark Q[over ¯]^{'}=c[over ¯],b[over ¯], namely, DD[over ¯]^{*}, D^{*}D[over ¯]^{*}, D^{*}B^{*}, B[over ¯]B^{*}, B[over ¯]^{*}B^{*}, Σ_{c}D[over ¯]^{*}, Σ_{c}B^{*}, Σ_{b}D[over ¯]^{*}, Σ_{b}B^{*}, Σ_{c}Σ[over ¯]_{c}, Σ_{c}Λ[over ¯]_{c}, Σ_{c}Λ[over ¯]_{b}, Σ_{b}Σ[over ¯]_{b}, Σ_{b}Λ[over ¯]_{b}, and Σ_{b}Λ[over ¯]_{c}, as well as corresponding S-wave states giving rise to QQ^{'} or Q[over ¯]Q[over ¯]^{'}.

    In these lectures I make an introduction to chiral unitary theory applied to the meson-baryon interaction and show how several well-known resonances are dynamically generated, and others are predicted. Two very recent experiments are analyzed, one of them showing the existence of two (1405) states and the other one providing support for the (1520) resonance as a quasi-bound state of $\\sum (1385) $. The use of chiral Lagrangians to account for the hadronic interaction at the elementary level introduces a new approach to deal with the modification of meson and baryon properties in a nuclear medium. Examples of it for $\\bar{K}$, and modification in the nuclear medium are presented.

  5. Compatibility of Quark and Resonant Picture Excited Baryon Multiplets in 1/N_c

    2003-01-01

    We demonstrate that the two major complementary pictures of large N_c baryon resonances--as single-quark orbital excitations about a closed-shell core [giving SU(2N_F) x O(3) multiplets], and as resonances in meson-baryon scattering amplitudes--are completely compatible in a specific sense: Both pictures give rise to a set of multiplets of degenerate states, for which any complete spin-flavor multiplet within one picture fills the quantum numbers of complete multiplets in the other picture. This result is demonstrated by: (i) straightforward computation of the lowest multiplets in both pictures; (ii) a study of the nature of quark excitations in a hedgehog picture; (iii) direct group-theoretical comparison of the constraints in the two pictures.

    The cross section for the reaction ep-->e(')ppi(+)pi(-) was measured in the resonance region for 1.4resonant structures not visible in previous experiments. The comparison of our data to a phenomenological prediction using available information on N(*) and Delta states shows an evident discrepancy. A better description of the data is obtained either by a sizable change of the properties of the P13(1720) resonance or by introducing a new baryon state, not reported in published analyses.

    The data on the charge-exchange reaction K^+Xe --> K^0 p Xe, obtained with the bubble chamber DIANA, are reanalyzed using increased statistics and updated selections. Our previous evidence for formation of a narrow pK^0 resonance with mass near 1538 MeV is confirmed and reinforced. The statistical significance of the signal reaches some 8\\sigma (6\\sigma) when estimated as S/\\sqrt{B} (S/\\sqrt{B+S}).

    With data taken by SELEX, which accumulated data during the 1996-1997 fixed target run at Fermilab, we study the production of charmed hadrons on copper and carbon targets with Sigma-, p, pi-, and pi+ beams. Parameterizing the production cross section A^alpha, A being the atomic number, we determine alpha for D+, D0, Ds+, D+(2010), Lambda_c+, and their respective anti-particles, as a function of their transverse momentum pt and scaled longitudinal momentum xF. Within our statistics there is no dependence of alpha on xF for any charm species for the interval 0.1charm production by pion beams is alpha_{meson}=0.850+/-0.028. This is somewhat larger than the corresponding average alpha_{baryon}=0.755+/-0.016 for charm production by baryon beams (Sigma-, p).

  12. Excited mass spectra of Σ+c baryon

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Baryons are strongly interacting fermions made up of three quarks. Recently, many of single charm baryons are discovered by different colliders like CLEO, Belle, BABAR, etc. Among different phenomenological Quark models, we practise on Hypercentral Constituent Quark Model (hCQM) with coulomb plus power potential. The methodology of single charmed Baryon Σ+c is derived in the paper. Our predictions for charmed baryon masses are matched with other theoretical prediction as well as known experimental data. The obtained results are used for constructing the heavy baryon Regge trajectories in the (nr, M2)

    We report on baryon resonance production and decay in proton-proton collisions at a kinetic energy of $3.5$ GeV based on data measured with HADES. The exclusive channels $pp \\rightarrow np\\pi^{+}$ and $pp \\rightarrow pp\\pi^{0}$ as well as $pp \\rightarrow ppe^{+}e^{-}$ are studied simultaneously for the first time. The invariant masses and angular distributions of the pion-nucleon systems were studied and compared to simulations based on a resonance model ansatz assuming saturation of the pion production by an incoherent sum of baryonic resonances (R) with masses $<2~$ GeV/$c^2$. A very good description of the one-pion production is achieved allowing for an estimate of individual baryon-resonance production-cross-sections which are used as input to calculate the dielectron yields from $R\\rightarrow pe^+e^-$ decays. Two models of the resonance decays into dielectrons are examined assuming a point-like $RN \\gamma^*$ coupling and the dominance of the $\\rho$ meson.

    2016-01-01

    We present the results of a third order calculation of the pion-nucleon scattering amplitude in a chiral effective field theory with pions, nucleons and delta resonances as explicit degrees of freedom. We work in a manifestly Lorentz invariant formulation of baryon chiral perturbation theory using dimensional regularization and the extended on-mass-shell renormalization scheme. In the delta resonance sector, the on mass-shell renormalization is realized as a complex-mass scheme. By fitting the low-energy constants of the effective Lagrangian to the $S$- and $P$-partial waves a satisfactory description of the phase shifts from the analysis of the Roy-Steiner equations is obtained. We predict the phase shifts for the $D$ and $F$ waves and compare them with the results of the analysis of the George Washington University group. The threshold parameters are calculated both in the delta-less and delta-full cases. Based on the determined low-energy constants, we discuss the pion-nucleon sigma term. Additionally, in ...

  16. Doubly Heavy Tetraquarks and Baryons

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2014-04-01

    Full Text Available During the last three years strong experimental evidence from B and charm factories has been accumulating for the existence of exotic hadronic quarkonia, narrow resonances which cannot be made from a quark and an antiquark. Their masses and decay modes show that they contain a heavy quark-antiquark pair, but their quantum numbers are such that they must also contain a light quark-antiquark pair. The theoretical challenge has been to determine the nature of these resonances. The main possibilities are that they are either "genuine tetraquarks", i.e. two quarks and two antiquarks within one confinement volume, or "hadronic molecules" of two heavy-light mesons. In the last few months there as been more and more evidence in favor of the latter. I discuss the experimental data and its interpretation and provide fairly precise predictions for masses and quantum numbers of the additional exotic states which are naturally expected in the molecular picture but have yet to be observed. In addition, I provide arguments in favor of the existence of an even more exotic state – a hypothetical deuteron-like bound state of two heavy baryons. I also consider “baryon-like" states QQ' q¯q¯′$\\bar q\\bar q\\prime $, which if found will be direct evidence not just for near-threshold binding of two heavy mesons, but for genuine tetraquarks with novel color networks. I stress the importance of experimental search for doubly-heavy baryons in this context.

    New cross sections for the reaction e p-->e p eta are reported for total center of mass energy W = 1.5--1.86 GeV and invariant momentum transfer Q2 = 0.25--1.5 (GeV/c)(2). This large kinematic range allows extraction of important new information about response functions, photocouplings, and eta N coupling strengths of baryon resonances. Newly observed structure at W approximately 1.65 GeV is shown to come from interference between S and P waves and can be interpreted with known resonances. Improved values are derived for the photon coupling amplitude for the S11(1535) resonance. PMID:11290228

    The SELEX experiment (E781) at Fermilab is a 3-stage magnetic spectrometer for the high statistics study of charm hadroproduction out to large x_F using 600 GeV Sigma^-, p and pi beams. The main features of the spectrometer are: high precision silicon vertex system, broad-coverage particle identification with TRD and RICH, 3-stage lead glass photon detector. Preliminary results on differences in hadroproduction characteristics of charm mesons and Lambda_c^+ for x_F>0.3 are reported. For baryon beams there is a striking asymmetry in the production of baryons compared to antibaryons. Leading particle effects for all incident hadrons are discussed.

    We study the dependence on the quark mass of the compositeness of the lowest-lying odd parity hyperon states. Thus, we pay attention to $\\Lambda-$like states in the strange, charm and beauty, sectors which are dynamically generated using a unitarized meson-baryon model. In the strange sector we use an SU(6) extension of the Weinberg-Tomozawa meson-baryon interaction, and we further implement the heavy-quark spin symmetry to construct the meson-baryon interaction when charmed or beauty hadrons are involved. In the three examined flavor sectors, we obtain two $J^P=1/2^-$ and one $J^P=3/2^-$ $\\Lambda$ states. We find that the $\\Lambda$ states which are bound states (the three $\\Lambda_b$) or narrow resonances (one $\\Lambda(1405)$ and one $\\Lambda_c(2595)$) are well described as molecular states composed of $s$-wave meson-baryon pairs. The $\\frac{1}{2}^-$ wide $\\Lambda(1405)$ and $\\Lambda_c(2595)$ as well as the $\\frac{3}{2}^-$ $\\Lambda(1520)$ and $\\Lambda_c(2625)$ states display smaller compositeness and so they...

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Basic characteristics of charmed particles obtained up to the middle of 1981 are discussed in the survey. Stated in brief are main predictions of the theory on charmed particles properties. Experimental data on masses, decay modes and lifetimes of D and F mesons as well as charmed baryons are considered. Basic experiments are described. It is pointed out that in the experiments single and pair production events as well as charmed particle decay have been observed. The charmed particles lifetime lies within the limits of 10-12 - 10-13C. The lifetime of D+- mesons is approximately three times longer than the D0 mesons lifetime. The lifetime of F mesons and Λsub(e) baryons is close to D0 mesons lifetime

Associative production of Σ*+-(1385) with show protons has been studied for the first time. The experimental data are compared in detail with the Lund fragmentation model. The first experimental estimates are obtained for parameters describing suppression of 1 spin sea diquarks as compared with 0 spin diquarks, and of strange sea diquarks as compared with non-strange diquarks

  9. Exotic pentaquarks as Gamov--Teller resonances

    CERN Document Server

    Diakonov, Dmitri

    2009-01-01

    If the number of colors Nc is taken large, baryons and their excitations can be considered in a mean-field approach. We argue that the mean field in baryons breaks spontaneously the spherical and SU(3) flavor symmetries, but retains the SU(2) symmetry of simultaneous rotations in space and isospace. The one-quark and quark-hole excitations in the mean field, together with the SU(3) rotational bands about them determine the spectrum of baryon resonances, which turns out to be in satisfactory accordance with reality when one puts Nc=3. A by-product of this scheme is a confirmation of the light pentaquark baryon Theta+ = uudds-bar as a typical Gamov--Teller resonance long known in nuclear physics. An extension of the same large-Nc logic to charmed (and beauty) baryons leads to a prediction of a decapenta (15)-plet of charmed pentaquarks, two of which, Theta++_c = cuuds-bar and Theta+_c = cudds-bar, may be light and stable with respect to strong decays, and should be looked for.

    The CP violation in charm quarks has always been thought to be extremely small. So, looking at particle decays involving matter and antimatter, the LHCb experiment has recently been surprised to observe that things might be different. Theorists are on the case.   The study of the physics of the charm quark was not in the initial plans of the LHCb experiment, whose letter “b” stands for “beauty quark”. However, already one year ago, the Collaboration decided to look into a wider spectrum of processes that involve charm quarks among other things. The LHCb trigger allows a lot of these processes to be selected, and, among them, one has recently shown interesting features. Other experiments at b-factories have already performed the same measurement but this is the first time that it has been possible to achieve such high precision, thanks to the huge amount of data provided by the very high luminosity of the LHC. “We have observed the decay modes of t...

    SVD-2 experiment data have been analyzed to search for an exotic baryon state, the $\\Theta^+$-baryon, in a $pK^0_s$ decay mode at $70 GeV/c$ on IHEP accelerator. The reaction $pA \\to pK^0_s+X$ with a limited multiplicity was used in the analysis. The $pK^0_s$ invariant mass spectrum shows a resonant structure with $M=1526\\pm3(stat.)\\pm 3(syst.) MeV/c^2$ and $\\Gamma < 24 MeV/c^2$. The statistical significance of this peak was estimated to be of $5.6 \\sigma$. The mass and width of the resonance is compatible with the recently reported $\\Theta^+$- baryon with positive strangeness which was predicted as an exotic pentaquark ($uudd\\bar{s}$) baryon state. The total cross section for $\\Theta^+$ production in pN-interactions for $X_F\\ge 0$ was estimated to be $(30\\div120) \\mu b$ and no essential deviation from A-dependence for inelastic events $(\\sim A^{0.7})$ was found.

    The inclusive reaction $p A \\to pK^0_s + X$ was studied at IHEP accelerator with $70 GeV$ proton beam using SVD-2 detector. Two different samples of $K^0_s$, statistically independent and belonging to different phase space regions were used in the analyses and a narrow baryon resonance with the mass $M=1523\\pm 2(stat.)\\pm 3(syst.) MeV/c^2$ was observed in both samples of the data

    $\\Lambda^+_c$ hypernuclei are expected to have binding energies and other properties similar to those of strange hypernuclei in view of the similarity between the quark structures of the strange and charmed hyperons, namely $\\Lambda(uds)$ and $\\Lambda^+_c (udc)$. One striking difference however occurs in their mesonic decays, as there is almost no Pauli blocking in the nucleonic decay of a charm hypernucleus because the final-state nucleons leave the nucleus at high energies. The nuclear medium nevertheless affects the mesonic decays of charm hypernucleus because the nuclear mean fields modify the masses of the charm hyperon. In the present communication we present results of a first investigation of the effects of finite baryon density on different weak mesonic decay channels of the $\\Lambda^+_c$ baryon. We found a non-negligible reduction of the decay widths as compared to their vacuum values.

    The spectra of baryonic systems with strangeness, charm and bottom are considered within a ''rigid oscillator'' version of the bound state soliton model. The static properties of multiskyrmions, of baryon number up to B=8, are calculated using the recently suggested rational map ansaetze as starting field configurations. The property of binding of flavoured mesons by an SU(2) skyrmion is proved rigorously within this model. Binding energy estimates are made of the states with largest isospin which can appear as negatively charged nuclear fragments and for states with zero isospin - fragments of ''flavoured'' nuclear matter. It is shown that for all types of flavour and for vertical stroke F vertical stroke {<=}2 the isoscalar baryonic systems have a better chance to be stable against strong and electromagnetic interactions than those with nonzero isospin. Baryonic systems with charm or bottom quantum numbers are found to be bound more than strange baryonic systems. (orig.)

    Using data from proton-antiproton collisions at Ecms=1.96 TeV recorded by the CDF II detector at the Fermilab Tevatron, evidence for the excited resonance state Lambda_b* is presented in its Lambda_b0 pi+ pi- decay, followed by the Lambda_b0 -->Lambda_c+ (-->proton K- pi+) pi- decays. The analysis is based on a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 9.6/fb collected by an online event selection based on charged-particle tracks displaced from the proton-antiproton interaction point. The significance of the observed signal is 3.5 Gaussian sigmas. The mass of the observed state is found to be 5919.22 +- 0.84 MeV in agreement with similar findings in proton-proton collision experiments.

    By extending the SU(3) flavour symmetry breaking expansion from up, down and strange sea quark masses to partially quenched valence quark masses we propose a method to determine charmed quark hadron masses including possible QCD isospin breaking effects. Initial results for some open charmed pseudoscalar meson states and singly and doubly charmed baryon states are encouraging and demonstrate the potential of the procedure. Essential for the method is the determination of the scale using singlet quantities, and to this end we also give here a preliminary estimation of the recently introduced Wilson flow scales.

    EPECUR experimental setup is aimed at the search of narrow resonant states by precision measurement of differential and total reaction cross sections of pion-nucleon interaction with 1 MeV pion energy steps. In five years passed from the idea of the experiment till the start of the data taking in April of 2009, a new apparatus was build from scratch at the universal beam line 322 of ITEP proton synchrotron U-10. The setup is essentially a non-magnetic spectrometer with a liquid hydrogen target based on the large aperture drift chambers with hexagonal structure. The unique properties of the beam line allow individual pion momentum measurement with the accuracy better than 0.1%. The momentum tagging is done with 1 mm pitch proportional chambers located in the first focus of the beam line. The design of numerous subsystems of the setup is based on modern electronic components including microprocessors and FPGA. All the subsystems are tuned and tested both individually and as parts of the whole working setup. The...

    We study the details and time dependence of particle production in nuclear collisions at a fixed target beam energy of $E_{\\mathrm{lab}}= 1.76$ A GeV with the UrQMD transport model. We find that the previously proposed production mechanism for multi strange hadrons, $\\phi$ and $\\Xi$, are possible due to secondary interactions of incoming nuclei of the projectile and target with already created nuclear resonances, while the Fermi momenta of the nuclei play only a minor role. We also show how the centrality dependence of these particle multiplicities can be used to confirm the proposed mechanism, as it strongly depends on the number of participants in the reaction. Furthermore we investigate the time dependence of particle production in collisions of Ca+Ca at this beam energy, in order to understand the origins of the apparent chemical equilibration of the measured particle yields. We find that indeed the light hadron yields appear to be in equilibrium already from the very early stage of the collision while in...

  4. A Relativistic Model for the Electromagnetic Structure of Baryons from the 3rd Resonance Region

    Ramalho, G

    2016-01-01

    We present some predictions for the $\\gamma^\\ast N \\to N^\\ast$ transition amplitudes, where $N$ is the nucleon, and $N^\\ast$ is a nucleon excitation from the third resonance region. First we estimate the transition amplitudes associated with the second radial excitation of the nucleon, interpreted as the $N(1710)$ state, using the covariant spectator quark model. After that, we combine some results from the covariant spectator quark model with the framework of the single quark transition model, to make predictions for the $\\gamma^\\ast N \\to N^\\ast$ transition amplitudes, where $N^\\ast$ is a member of the $SU(6)$-multiplet $[70,1^-]$. The results for the $\\gamma^\\ast N \\to N(1520)$ and $\\gamma^\\ast N \\to N(1535)$ transition amplitudes are used as input to the calculation of the amplitudes $A_{1/2}$, $A_{3/2}$, associated with the $\\gamma^\\ast N \\to N(1650)$, $\\gamma^\\ast N \\to N(1700)$, $\\gamma^\\ast N \\to \\Delta(1620)$, and $\\gamma^\\ast N \\to \\Delta(1700)$ transitions.

  5. Baryons from quantum mechanics on the Lie group u(3)

    CERN Document Server

    Trinhammer, Ole L

    2011-01-01

    We develop a hamiltonian framework on the Lie group u(3), which we call allospace and which is supposed to carry all the colour dynamics needed to describe the baryon spectrum. The energy eigenstates of our particular Schr\\"odinger equation tends to predict realistically all certain baryon resonances in the NDelta sector. The grouping and number of resonances is predicted by the model from a single fitting of the ground state N(939). The Hamiltonian also contains terms from the group space Laplacian to take care of the superimposed hypercharge and isospin flavour structure. Scarce neutral flavour singlet resonances are predicted and may show up around 4500 MeV in neutron diffraction dissociation experiments above the threshold in the free charm system Sigmacplus(2455)Dminus . We give a controversial prediction of the neutron-proton mass difference as originating in a period doubling of certain parametric states. The group space dynamics communicates with real space via the exterior derivative which projects o...

    We report on the EMMI Rapid Reaction Task Force meeting 'Resonances in QCD', which took place at GSI October 12-14, 2015 (Fig.~1). A group of 26 people met to discuss the physics of resonances in QCD. The aim of the meeting was defined by the following three key questions; what is needed to understand the physics of resonances in QCD?; where does QCD lead us to expect resonances with exotic quantum numbers?; and what experimental efforts are required to arrive at a coherent picture? For light mesons and baryons only those with up, down and strange quark content were considered. For heavy-light and heavy-heavy meson systems, those with charm quarks were the focus.This document summarizes the discussions by the participants, which in turn led to the coherent conclusions we present here.

  8. Exclusive charm production in pbar p collisions at s^1/2 <15 GeV

    CERN Document Server

    Titov, A I

    2008-01-01

    We discuss the open charm production in peripheral reactions $\\bar pp\\to \\bar Y_cY_c$ and $\\bar pp\\to M_c\\bar M_c$, where $Y_c$ and $M_c$ stand for $\\Lambda_c^+,\\Sigma_c^+$ and $D,D^*$, respectively, at $\\sqrt{s}\\lesssim 15$ GeV, which corresponds to the energy range of FAIR. Our consideration is based on the topological decomposition of the planar quark and diquark diagrams which allows to estimate consistently meson and baryon exchange trajectories and energy scale parameters as well. The spin dependence is determined by the effective interaction of lowest exchanged resonance. Unknown parameters are fixed by an independent analysis of open strangeness production in $\\bar pp\\to \\bar YY$ and $\\bar pp\\to \\bar KK$ reactions and of SU(4) symmetry. We present the corresponding cross sections and longitudinal double-spin asymmetries for exclusive binary reactions with open charm mesons and baryons in the final state. The polarization observables have a non-trivial $t$ and $s$ dependence which is sensitive to detai...

  9. Spectrum of heavy baryons in the quark model

    CERN Document Server

    Yoshida, Tetsuya; Hosaka, Atsushi; Oka, Makoto; Sadato, Katsunori

    2015-01-01

    Single- and double- heavy baryons are studied in the constituent quark model. The model Hamiltonian is chosen as a standard one with two exceptions : (1) The color-Coulomb term depend on quark masses, and (2) an antisymmetric $LS$ force is introduced. Model parameters are fixed by the strange baryon spectra, $\\Lambda$ and $\\Sigma$ baryons. The masses of the observed charmed and bottomed baryons are, then, fairly well reproduced. Our focus is on the low-lying negative-parity states, in which the heavy baryons show specific excitation modes reflecting the mass differences of heavy and light quarks. By changing quark masses from the SU(3) limit to the strange quark mass, further to the charm and bottom quark masses, we demonstrate that the spectra change from the SU(3) symmetry patterns to the heavy quark symmetry ones.

  10. Measurement of the tensor analyzing power Ayy in the inelastic scattering of deuterons in the vicinity of excitation of baryonic resonances

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The tensor Ayy and vector Ay analyzing powers in the inelastic scattering of deuterons with a momentum of 4.5 GeV/c on beryllium at an angle of ∝80 mr in the vicinity of baryonic resonance excitation have been measured. The Ayy data being in good agreement with the previous results obtained at a zero angle demonstrate an approximate t scaling up to ∝-0.9 (GeV/c)2. The results of the experiment are compared with the predictions of the multiple-scattering and ω-meson exchange models. (orig.)

    We study the mass spectra of hidden-charm pentaquarks having spin $J = {1\\over2},{3\\over2},{5\\over2}$ and quark contents $uud c \\bar c$. We systematically construct all the relevant local hidden-charm pentaquark currents, and select some of them to perform QCD sum rule analyses. We find that the $P_c(4380)$ and $P_c(4450)$ can be identified as hidden-charm pentaquark states composed of an anti-charmed meson and a charmed baryon. We also find the lowest-lying hidden-charm $J^P = 1/2^-$ pentaquark state of mass $4.33^{+0.17}_{-0.13}$ GeV, while the $J^P = 1/2^+$ mass prediction of 4.7--4.9 GeV is significantly higher. Similarly, the lowest-lying hidden-charm $J^P = 3/2^-$ pentaquark state mass is $4.37^{+0.18}_{-0.13}$ GeV, consistent with the $J^P = 3/2^-$ $P_c(4380)$, while the $J^P = 3/2^+$ is also significantly higher with a mass above 4.6 GeV. The hidden-charm $J^P = 5/2^-$ pentaquark state mass is 4.5--4.6 GeV, slightly larger than the $J^P = 5/2^+$ $P_c(4450)$.

    In this talk I report on recent work related to the dynamical generation of baryonic resonances, some made up from pseudoscalar meson-baryon, others from vector meson-baryon and a third type from two meson-one baryon systems. We can establish a correspondence with known baryonic resonances, reinforcing conclusions previously drawn and bringing new light on the nature of some baryonic resonances of higher mass.

  13. Possible Indication of Narrow Baryonic Resonances Produced in the 1720-1790 MeV Mass Region

    Signals of two narrow structures at M=1747 MeV and 1772 MeV were observed in the invariant masses M_{pX} and M_{\\pi^{+}X} of the pp->ppX and pp->p\\pi^{+}X reactions respectively. Many tests were made to see if these structures could have been produced by experimental artefacts. Their small widths and the stability of the extracted masses lead us to conclude that these structures are genuine and may correspond to new exotic baryons. Several attempts to identify them, including the possible "missing baryons" approach, are discussed.

    2016-01-01

    The relevance of chiral symmetry in baryons is highlighted in three examples in the nucleon spectroscopy and structure. The first one is the importance of chiral dynamics in understanding the Roper resonance. The second one is the role of chiral symmetry in the lattice calculation of $\\pi N \\sigma$ term and strangeness. The third one is the role of chiral $U(1)$ anomaly in the anomalous Ward identity in evaluating the quark spin and the quark orbital angular momentum. Finally, the chiral effective theory for baryons is discussed.

    Vertex operators for photo- and electro-production of baryon states with arbitrary spin-parity, $ \\gamma + N\\to B(J^P)$, are constructed. The operators obey gauge invariance and analyticity constraints. Analyticity is realized as a requirement of the generalized Siegert theorem for vertex form factors.

    Two reactions, pp->ppX and pp->p\\pi^+X, are used to study the 1.47baryonic mass range. Three different final states are considered in the invariant masses: N^* or \\Delta^+, p\\pi^0, and p\\eta. The last two channels are defined by software cuts applied to the missing mass of the first reaction. Several narrow structures are extracted with widths \\sigma(\\Gamma) varying between 3 and 9 MeV. Some structures are observed in one channel but not in others. Such nonobservation may be due either to the spectrometer momenta limits or to the physics (e.g. no such disintegration channel is allowed from the narrow state considered). We tentatively conclude that the broad Particle Data Group (PDG) baryonic resonances N(1520)D13, N(1535)S11, Delta(1600)P33, and N(1675)D15 are collective states built from several narrow and weakly excited resonances, each having a (much) smaller width than the one reported by PDG.

    Photoproduction of the charmonium-like state $Z_{c}(4200)$ and the charmed baryon $\\Lambda_{c}^{\\ast }(2940)$ is investigated with an effective Lagrangian approach and the Regge trajectories applying to the COMPASS experiment. Combining the experimental data from COMPASS and our theoretical model we estimate the upper limit of $\\Gamma_{Z_{c}(4200)\\rightarrow J/\\psi \\pi }$ to be of about 37 MeV. Moreover, the possibility to produce $\\Lambda_{c}^{\\ast }(2940)$ at COMPASS is discussed. It seems one can try to search for this hadron in the missing mass spectrum since the $t$-channel is dominating for the $\\Lambda_{c}^{\\ast }(2940)$ photoproduction.

    In the large N limit cold dense nuclear matter must be in a lattice phase. This applies also to holographic models of hadron physics. In a class of such models, like the generalized Sakai-Sugimoto model, baryons take the form of instantons of the effective flavor gauge theory that resides on probe flavor branes. In this paper we study the phase structure of baryonic crystals by analyzing discrete periodic configurations of such instantons. We find that instanton configurations exhibit a serie...

  4. Heavy baryon production and decay

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The branching ratio B(Λc→pK-π+) normalizes the production and decay of charmed and bottom baryons. At present, this crucial branching ratio is extracted dominantly from bar B→baryons analyses. This paper questions several of the underlying assumptions and predicts sizable bar B→D(*)N bar N'X transitions, which were traditionally neglected. It predicts B(Λc→pK-π+) to be larger (0.07±0.02) than the world average. Some consequences are briefly mentioned. Several techniques to measure B(Λc→pK-π+) are outlined with existing or soon available data samples. By equating two recent CLEO results, an appendix obtains B(D0→K-π+)=0.035±0.002, which is somewhat smaller than the current world average. copyright 1998 The American Physical Society

  5. The possibility to measure the magnetic moments of short-lived particles (charm and beauty baryons) at LHC and FCC energies using the phenomenon of spin rotation in crystals

    The use of spin rotation effect in bent crystals for measuring the magnetic moment of short-lived particles in the range of LHC and FCC energies is considered. It is shown that the estimated number of produced baryons that are captured into a bent crystal grows as ∼γ 3 / 2 with increasing particle energy. Hence it may be concluded that the experimental measurement of magnetic moments of short-lived particles using the spin rotation effect is feasible at LHC and higher energies (for LHC energies, e.g., the running time required for measuring the magnetic moment of Λc+ is 2 ÷ 16 hours).

    Heavy flavor baryons containing single and double charm (beauty) quarks with light flavor combinations are studied using the hypercentral description of the three-body problem. The confinement potential is assumed as hypercentral Coulomb plus power potential with power index . The ground state masses of the heavy flavor, $J^{P} = \\dfrac{1}{2}^{+}$ and $\\dfrac{3}{2}^{+}$ baryons are computed for different power indices, starting from 0.5 to 2.0. The predicted masses are found to attain a saturated value in each case of quark combinations beyond the power index = 1.0.

    This paper gives an overview of charm physics. It is a lecture write-up aimed at students with a minimum of prior knowledge in particle physics, but at the same time provides a state-of-the art review of the field. The main focus is on mixing and CP violation, which is a field with ever growing attention since first evidence for charm mixing was observed in 2007. Other areas covered are charm spectroscopy, production, as well as rare decays.

    In this study, a search is presented for the decay Υ(1S)→γA0, A0 → cc¯, where A0 is a candidate for the CP-odd Higgs boson of the next-to-minimal supersymmetric standard model. The search is based on data collected with the BABAR detector at the Υ(2S) resonance. A sample of Υ(1S) mesons is selected via the decay Υ(2S) → π+π Υ(1S). The A0 → cc¯ decay is identified through the reconstruction of hadronic D0, D+, and D*(2010)+ meson decays. No significant signal is observed. The measured 90% confidence-level upper limits on the product branching fraction B(Υ(1S) → γA0)×B(A0 → cc¯) range from 7.4×10–5 to 2.4×10–3 for A0 masses from 4.00 to 8.95 GeV/c2 and 9.10 to 9.25 GeV/c2, where the region between 8.95 and 9.10 GeV/c2 is excluded because of background from Υ(2S) → γχbJ(1P), χbJ(1P) → γΥ(1S) decays.

    We report on measurements of the differential cross section d σ /d Ω and the first measurement of the analyzing power Ay in the Δ (1232 ) excitation energy region of the reaction p p →{pp } sπ0 where {pp } s is a S10 proton pair. The experiment has been performed with the ANKE spectrometer at COSY-Jülich. The data reveal a peak in the energy dependence of the forward {pp } s differential cross section, a minimum at zero degrees of its angular distribution, and a large analyzing power. The results present a direct manifestation of two two-baryon resonance-like states with JP=2- and 0- and an invariant mass of 2.2 GeV /c2.

    The abundant $\\psi'$ events have been collected at the Beijing Electron Positron Collider-II (BEPCII) which would undoubtedly provide us with a great opportunity to study the more attractive charmonium decays.

Similarly, by using the product of $\\chi_{cJ}$ from $\\psi'$ radiative decay, we may confirm it or find some extra new resonances. Here, we provide explicit partial wave analysis formulae for the most interesting channel $\\psi'\\to\\gamma\\chi_{c0}\\to \\gamma p K^- \\overline{\\Lambda}$.

    The production of charmed and beauty hadrons in proton-proton and proton-antiproton collisions at high energies is analyzed within the modified quark-gluon string model (QGSM) including the internal motion of quarks in colliding hadrons. It is shown that using both the QGSM and NLO QCD one can describe these experimental data rather successfully in a wide region of transverse momenta. We also present some predictions for the future experiments on the beauty baryon production in pp collisions at LHC energies and on the charmed meson production in p-bar p reactions at GSI energies.

    We study possible baryon molecules in the non-strange heavy baryon spectrum. We include configurations with a heavy-meson and a light baryon. We find several structures, in particular we can understand the Λc(2940) as a D*N molecule with JP = 3/2- quantum numbers.

    We determine the charm quark mass $\\hat{m}_c$ from QCD sum rules of moments of the vector current correlator calculated in perturbative QCD at ${\\cal O} (\\hat\\alpha_s^3)$. Only experimental data for the charm resonances below the continuum threshold are needed in our approach, while the continuum contribution is determined by requiring self-consistency between various sum rules. Existing data from the continuum region can then be used to bound the theoretic uncertainty. Our result is $\\hat{m}_c(\\hat{m}_c) = 1272 \\pm 8$~MeV for $\\hat\\alpha_s(M_Z) = 0.1182$.

    In the framework of one-pion-exchange (OPE) model, we study the hidden-charm and charm-strange molecular pentauqark systems composed of a heavy baryon $(\\Sigma_c, \\Sigma_c^*)$ and a vector meson $(\\bar{K}^*, \\bar{D}^*)$. We take into account the S-D mixing in our calculation and explain the observed $P_c(4380)$ and $P_c(4450)$ as the $\\Sigma_c\\bar{D}^*$ molecular state with $(I=1/2,J=3/2)$ and the $\\Sigma_c^*\\bar{D}^*$ molecular state with $(I=1/2,J=5/2)$, respectively. Moreover, we predict two other hidden-charm molecular pentaquarks with configurations $\\Sigma_c\\bar{D}^*$ $(I=3/2, J=1/2)$ and $\\Sigma_c^*\\bar{D}^*$ $(I=3/2, J=1/2)$ and two charm-strange molecular pentaquarks $P_{cs}(3340)$ and $P_{cs}(3400)$ corresponding to the $\\Sigma_c\\bar{K}^*$ configuration with $I(J^P)=\\frac{1}{2}(\\frac{3}{2}^-)$ and the $\\Sigma_c^*\\bar{K}^*$ configuration with $I(J^P)=\\frac{1}{2}(\\frac{5}{2}^-)$, respectively.

  18. Heavy Baryons in a Quark Model

    2007-11-14

    A quark model is applied to the spectrum of baryons containing heavy quarks. The model gives masses for the known heavy baryons that are in agreement with experiment, but for the doubly-charmed baryon $\\Xi_{cc}$, the model prediction is too heavy. Mixing between the $\\Xi_Q$ and $\\Xi_Q^\\prime$ states is examined and is found to be small for the lowest lying states. In contrast with this, mixing between the $\\Xi_{bc}$ and $\\Xi_{bc}^\\prime$ states is found to be large, and the implication of this mixing for properties of these states is briefly discussed. We also examine heavy-quark spin-symmetry multiplets, and find that many states in the model can be placed in such multiplets.

    We present a qualitative analysis of the gross features of baryon spectroscopy (masses and form factors) in terms of various exactly solvable models. It is shown that a collective model, in which baryon resonances are interpreted as rotations and vibrations of an oblate symmetric top, provides a good starting point for a more detailed quantitative study.

    The inclusive reaction $p A \\to pK^0_s + X$ was studied at IHEP accelerator with $70 GeV/c$ proton beam using SVD-2 detector. Two different samples of $K^0_s$, statistically independent and belonging to different phase space regions, were used in the analyses and a narrow baryon resonance with the mass $M=1523\\pm 2(stat.)\\pm 3(syst.) MeV/c^2$ was observed in both samples of the data. The combined statistical significance was estimated to be of 8.0 (392 signal over 1990 background events). Using the part of events reconstructed with better accuracy the width of resonance was constrained to $\\Gamma \\approx 0.1$}, that qualitatively agrees to a Regge-based model predictions. A new cross section estimate of $\\sigma \\cdot BR(\\Theta^+ \\to pK^0) = 4.9 \\pm 1.0(stat.) \\pm 1.5(syst.) \\mu b/nucleon$ for $x_F > 0$ was obtained.

    A partial-wave analysis was performed on elastic ..pi../sup +/p data between 1400 and 2200 MeV, using principles of analyticity (to select and amalgamate data), causality and unitarity together with Barrelet zeros are the resonating waves between 1500 and 1800 MeV examined in detail, and it is shown how a new resolution of the discrete ambiguity gives, for the S31 and D33 resonances, different parameters than found in an earlier resolution using less accurate information. In either case, mass degeneracy of these resonances is observed in agreement with general considerations regarding smooth zero trajectories. 18 references.

    2016-01-01

    We present the first predictions for sub-threshold open charm and charmonium production in nuclear collisions. The production mechanism is driven by multi-step scatterings of nucleons and their resonance states, accumulating sufficient energy for the production of $J/\\Psi$ and $\\Lambda_c + \\bar{D}$. Our results are of particular importance for the CBM experiment at FAIR, as they indicate that already at the SIS100 accelerator one can expect a significant number of charmed hadrons to be produced. This opens new possibilities to explore chram dynamics and the formation of charm (super-) nuclei.

    In this talk we present an approach to the Λb → J/ψK- p reaction, where we look at the invariant mass of K- p and also πΣ, with a view to determine the shape and production rate of the Λ(1405) resonance. We compare the results obtained with the analysis of the same reaction, made a posteriori by the LHCb collaboration, in which two pentaquark states were claimed. At the same time we show the results of another work, prompted by the findings of the LHCb collaboration, where we show that there is consistency with the results obtained in the study of the Λb → J/ψK- p reaction with other results previously reported about a hidden charm baryon state.

  5. Pentaquark Θ+, constituent quark structures, and prediction of charmed Θc0 and bottomed Θb+

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The newly observed Θ+ resonance is believed to be a pentaquark with the constituent quarks uudds-bar. There are a few options for the constituent quark structure. Some advocate diquark-diquark-antiquark (ud)-(ud)-s-bar while others favor diquark-triquark (ud)-(uds-bar) structure. We use the color-spin hyperfine interaction to examine the energy levels of these structures, and we find that the diquark-diquark-antiquark structure is slightly favored. We proceed to write down the flavor triplet and antisextet of the charmed or bottomed exotic baryons with internal qqqqQ-bar quarks. We also estimate the mass of Θc0 and Θb+

    2013-04-18

    The present work investigates the vacuum properties of the hyperon resonances {Sigma}(1385){sup +} and {Lambda}(1405). For this purpose, p+p reactions at 3.5 GeV kinetic beam energy were analyzed. By using simulations and a special background method, the Breit-Wigner mass and width of the {Sigma}(1385){sup +} could be determined. Furthermore, its production dynamics were studied in different angular distributions. In this context indications were found that the {Sigma}(1385){sup +} partially stems from the decay of a heavy {Delta}-resonance. The investigation of the {Lambda}(1405) was based on similar analysis methods. After acceptance and efficiency corrections, the spectral shape of the {Lambda}(1405) could be extracted. Here a mass shift of this particle to masses below 1400 MeV/c{sup 2} was found. This might reveal important information about the two pole structure of the {Lambda}(1405) and its influence on the low energy anti KN interaction.

    A narrow pKo resonance with mass of 1537 +- 2 MeV/c^2 has been observed in the charge-exchange reaction K+n->KoP on a neutron bound in the Xenon nucleus. Visible width of the peak is consistent with being entirely due to instrumental smearing and allows to place an upper limit on intrinsic width Gamma KoP on a bound neutron.

    In the large N limit cold dense nuclear matter must be in a lattice phase. This applies also to holographic models of hadron physics. In a class of such models, like the generalized Sakai-Sugimoto model, baryons take the form of instantons of the effective flavor gauge theory that resides on probe flavor branes. In this paper we study the phase structure of baryonic crystals by analyzing discrete periodic configurations of such instantons. We find that instanton configurations exhibit a series of "popcorn" transitions upon increasing the density. Through these transitions normal (3D) lattices expand into the transverse dimension, eventually becoming a higher dimensional (4D) multi-layer lattice at large densities. We consider 3D lattices of zero size instantons as well as 1D periodic chains of finite size instantons, which serve as toy models of the full holographic systems. In particular, for the finite-size case we determine solutions of the corresponding ADHM equations for both a straight chain and for a 2...

We also discuss the two charged exotic resonances Z_b with quantum numbers of a (b bbar u ddbar) tetraquark, very recently reported by Belle in the channel [Upsilon(nS) \\pi^+, n=1,2,3]. Among possible implications are deeply bound I=0 counterparts of the Z_b-s and existence of a Sigma_b^+ Sigma_b^- dibaryon, a "beauteron".

    We study a Skyrme-type model with a potential term motivated by Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs), which we call the BEC Skyrme model. We consider two flavors of the model, the first is the Skyrme model and the second has a sixth-order derivative term instead of the Skyrme term; both with the added BEC-motivated potential. The model contains toroidally shaped Skyrmions and they are characterized by two integers P and Q, representing the winding numbers of two complex scalar fields along the toroidal and poloidal cycles of the torus, respectively. The baryon number is B=PQ. We find stable Skyrmion solutions for P=1,2,3,4,5 with Q=1, while for P=6 and Q=1 it is only metastable. We further find that configurations with higher Q>1 are all unstable and split into Q configurations with Q=1.

Through these transitions normal (3D) lattices expand into the transverse dimension, eventually becoming a higher dimensional (4D) multi-layer lattice at large densities. We consider 3D lattices of zero size instantons as well as 1D periodic chains of finite size instantons, which serve as toy models of the full holographic systems. In particular, for the finite-size case we determine solutions of the corresponding ADHM equations for both a straight chain and for a 2D zigzag configuration where instantons pop up into the holographic dimension. At low density the system takes the form of an "abelian anti- ferromagnetic" straight periodic chain. Above a critical density there is a second order phase transition into a zigzag structure. An even higher density yields a rich phase space characterized by the formation of multi-layer zigzag structures. The finite size of the lattices in the transverse dimension is a signal of an emerging Fermi sea of quarks. We thus propose that the popcorn transitions indicate the onset of the "quarkyonic" phase of the cold dense nuclear matter.

    Inclusive charm meson production cross sections in the deep inelastic scattering and photoproduction regimes are compared with QCD leading and next-to-leading (NLO) calculations. The NLO predictions are significantly below the data in some parts of the measured kinematic range. Angular distributions of dijet events with charm show clear evidence for the existence of charm originating from the incoming photon. The charm fragmentation function is measured for the first time at HERA. Various fragmentation ratios and the fragmentation fractions of the low-lying charm hadrons are determined and compared to previous e+e- results.

    Klein, Christoph

    2011-09-23

    Transitions of charmed hadrons are of significant importance, since they provide possibilities to extract the CKM matrix elements V{sub cd} and V{sub cs} from experimental data as well as interesting channels to search for new physics effects. However, quarks are bound in hadrons, and it is necessary to describe this effect in a reliable way, to study the underlying flavour dynamics. For this, one has to use nonperturbative tools, to determine the corresponding transition amplitudes. The results of such calculations can furthermore be of use, to test the predictions of QCD and to contribute to a deeper understanding of the structure of hadrons. In this thesis two topics are investigated using the method of QCD light-cone sum rules (LCSRs). The first topic consists in the form factors of the semileptonic decays D {yields} {pi}l{nu}{sub l} and D {yields} Kl{nu}{sub l}, for which new results are calculated using up-to-date input values. Since LCSRs are not applicable in the whole range of kinematics, they are extrapolated by the use of appropriate parametrisations and the results agree well with experimental data. The second topic are the transitions of charmed baryons to a nucleon. Here the corresponding transition form factors and in addition the hadronic {lambda}{sub c}D{sup (*)}N and {sigma}{sub c}D{sup (*)}N coupling constants are calculated - the latter by the consideration of double dispersion relations. These coupling constants are of special interest for the description of hadronic interactions, like open charm production in proton-antiprotoncollisions. Furthermore there appears the problem, that both parity states of a baryon contribute to the considered functional representation, for which a consistent way to separate them is presented. (orig.)

    2010-02-01

    A baryon is a hadron containing three quarks in a combination of up, down, strange, charm, or bottom. For prediction of the baryon energy spectrum, a baryon is modeled as a three-body system with the interacting forces coming from a set of two-body potentials that depend on the distance between the quarks, the spin-spin and spin-orbit angular momentum coupling terms, and a tensor term. Techniques and equations are derived from Todorov's work on constraint dynamics and the quasi-potential equation together with Two Body Dirac equations developed by Crater and Van Alstine, and adapted to this specific problem by further use of Sazdjian's N-body constraints dynamics for general confined systems. Baryon spectroscopy results are presented and compared with experiment. Typically, a best fit method is used in the analyses that employ several different algorithms, including a gradient approach, Monte Carlo modeling, and simulated annealing methods. )

A window in the decay distribution, where physics beyond the Standard Model could be measured is identified. Exemplary, we study effects of leptoquark models.

    The integrated branching fraction of the process B→ X s l + l - is dominated by resonance background from narrow charmonium states, such as B→ X s ψ→ X s l + l -, which exceeds the non-resonant charm-loop contribution by two orders of magnitude. The origin of this fact is discussed in view of the general expectation of quark-hadron duality. The situation in B→ X s l + l - is contrasted with charm-penguin amplitudes in two-body hadronic B decays of the type B→ π π, for which it is demonstrated that resonance effects and the potentially non-perturbative cbar{c} threshold region do not invalidate the standard picture of QCD factorization. This holds irrespective of whether the charm quark is treated as a light or a heavy quark.

  1. CP violation with beautiful baryons

    CP violation can be studied in modes of charmed or bottom baryons when a decay process is compared with its charge-conjugated partner. It can show up as a rate asymmetry and in a study of other decay parameters. Neither tagging nor time-dependences are required to observe CP violation with modes of baryons, in contrast to the conventional B{sup 0} modes. Numerous modes of bottom baryons have the potential to show large CP-violating effects within the Standard Model. Those effects can be substantial for modes with a D{sup 0}, which is seen in a final state that can also be fed from {anti D}{sup 0}. For instance, a comparison of the {Lambda}{sub b}{yields}{Lambda}D{sub CP}{sup 0} with the anti {Lambda}{sub b}{yields} anti {Lambda}D{sub CP}{sup 0} process can show sizeable CP violation. Here D{sub CP}{sup 0} denotes CP eigenstates of D{sup 0}, which occur at a few percent. Six related processes, such as {Lambda}{sub b}{yields}{Lambda}D{sup 0}, {Lambda}{sub b}{yields}{Lambda}{anti D}{sup 0}, {Lambda}{sub b}{yields}{Lambda}D{sub CP}{sup 0}, and their charge-conjugated counterparts, can extract {phi}, which is the most problematic angle of the unitarity triangle and which is conventionally probed with the B{sub s}{yields}{rho}{sup 0} K{sub S} asymmetry. Here D{sup 0} and anti D{sup 0} are identified by their charged kaon or lepton.

    We present results on the masses of the low-lying baryons using ten ensembles of gauge configurations with $N_f =2+1+1$ dynamical twisted mass fermions, at three values of the lattice spacing, spanning a pion mass range from about 210 MeV to about 430 MeV. The strange and charm quark masses are tuned to approximately their physical values. We examine isospin symmetry breaking effects on the baryon mass and the dependence on the lattice spacing. After taking the continuum limit we use chiral perturbation theory to extrapolate to the physical vlaue of the pion mass for all forty baryons. We provide predictions for the masses of doubly and triply charmed baryons that have not yet been measured experimentally.

    The properties of strange ($K$, $\\bar K$ and $\\bar K^*$) and open-charm ($D$, $\\bar D$ and $D^*$) mesons in dense matter are studied using a unitary approach in coupled channels for meson-baryon scattering. In the strangeness sector, the interaction with nucleons always comes through vector-meson exchange, which is evaluated by chiral and hidden gauge Lagrangians. For the interaction of charmed mesons with nucleons we extend the SU(3) Weinberg-Tomozawa Lagrangian to incorporate spin-flavor symmetry and implement a suitable flavor symmetry breaking. The in-medium solution for the scattering amplitude accounts for Pauli blocking effects and meson self-energies. On one hand, we obtain the $K$, $\\bar K$ and $\\bar K^*$ spectral functions in the nuclear medium and study their behaviour at finite density, temperature and momentum. We also make an estimate of the transparency ratio of the $\\gamma A \\to K^+ K^{*-} A^\\prime$ reaction, which we propose as a tool to detect in-medium modifications of the $\\bar K^*$ meson....

  4. Dynamically Generated Open and Hidden Charm Meson Systems

    The lowest order chiral Lagrangian successfully applied to study the interaction of the SU(3) octet of pseudo-scalar mesons is generalized to include all mesons from the SU(4) 15-plet of pseudo-scalar mesons. Exchanges of heavy vector mesons, which are indirectly taken into account via this approach, are suppressed. Unitarization in coupled channels leads to dynamical generation of resonances in the open and hidden charm sectors. In particular, for reasonable values of the input, a new narrow scalar resonance in the hidden charm sector appears with a mass of 3.7 GeV.

  5. Suppressed Charmed B Decay

    Snoek, Hella Leonie [Vrije Univ., Amsterdam (Netherlands)

    This thesis describes the measurement of the branching fractions of the suppressed charmed B0 → D*- a0+ decays and the non-resonant B0 → D*- ηπ+ decays in approximately 230 million Υ(4S) → B$\\bar{B}$ events. The data have been collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II B factory at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center in California. Theoretical predictions of the branching fraction of the B0 → D*- a{sub 0}+ decays show large QCD model dependent uncertainties. Non-factorizing terms, in the naive factorization model, that can be calculated by QCD factorizing models have a large impact on the branching fraction of these decay modes. The predictions of the branching fractions are of the order of 10-6. The measurement of the branching fraction gives more insight into the theoretical models. In general a better understanding of QCD models will be necessary to conduct weak interaction physics at the next level. The presence of CP violation in electroweak interactions allows the differentiation between matter and antimatter in the laws of physics. In the Standard Model, CP violation is incorporated in the CKM matrix that describes the weak interaction between quarks. Relations amongst the CKM matrix elements are used to present the two relevant parameters as the apex of a triangle (Unitarity Triangle) in a complex plane. The over-constraining of the CKM triangle by experimental measurements is an important test of the Standard Model. At this moment no stringent direct measurements of the CKM angle γ, one of the interior angles of the Unitarity Triangle, are available. The measurement of the angle γ can be performed using the decays of neutral B mesons. The B0 → D*- a0+ decay is sensitive to the angle γ and, in comparison to the current decays that are being employed, could significantly

    We discuss properties of baryon resonances belonging to the Nucleon, Delta, Sigma, Lambda, Xi and Omega families in a collective string-like model for the nucleon, in which the radial excitations are interpreted as rotations and vibrations of the string configuration. We find good overall agreement with the available data. The main discrepancies are found for low lying S-wave states, in particular N(1535), N(1650), Sigma(1750), Lambda*(1405), Lambda(1670) and Lambda(1800).

    2005-01-01

    A study of quasi elastic charm production in charged current neutrino-nucleon scattering is presented. A sample of about 1.3 million interactions recorded with the NOMAD detector in the CERN SPS wide band neutrino beam has been searched for quasi elastically produced charmed baryons ( L+c,Sc and S*c ). The search has been performed in two exclusive decay channels of the L+c, both including a L . Also, the semi-inclusive decay channels L+c,Sc,S *c→L+X have been studied. Kinematic selection criteria have been chosen in order to obtain samples enriched with quasi elastic charm events. Signal efficiencies and background expectations have been estimated by Monte Carlo simulations. The observed number of events in each searched channel has been found to agree with the background expectation from charged and neutral current reactions and an upper limit for the cross section has been derived. For the quasi elastic charm production cross section averaged over the neutrino energy spectrum (&lan...

We discuss the importance of the quark mass, the scale choice and the parton densities on the estimate of the uncertainty. We conclude that due to the small charm quark mass, which amplifies the effect of the other parameters in the calculation, the uncertainty on the total charm cross section is difficult to quantify.

    A summary is given of the 5th International Conference on Hyperons, Charm and Beauty Hadrons held in Vancouver, Canada, June 25th to 29th, 2002. This series of conferences began in 1995 in Strasbourg, France, in large part through the efforts of A. Fridman, to whose memory this talk is dedicated. Topics reviewed include kaon and hyperon physics, charm and beauty production and decays, heavy baryons, the physics of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix and CP violation, and precision electroweak analyses. An attempt is made to combine a review of the high points of the conference with a more general overview of the field and its prospects.

  15. Calculation of baryon masses in quantum chromodynamics

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The polarization operator of quark currents with the baryon quantum numbers is considered in quantum chromodynamics. The non-zero mean vacuum of the field operator products are taken into account. The sum rules are obtained assuming that in the virtuality region approximately 1 GeV, among the mean vacuum values violating the chiral invariance, the most important is . Saturating these sum rules by the lowest baryonic states one is able to calculate the masses of the isobar Δ and nucleon N, Msub(Δ) 1.4 GeV, Msub(N) = 1 GeV, up to 15 % through the known value . The mass splitting in the baryonic decuplet Msub(Σ*) - Msub(Δ) = 125 MeV is calculated in the first order in the current strange quark mass msub(s) = 150 MeV. Certain results for that baryonic resonances have been obtained

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Ever since the discovery of charmed mesons in electron-positron annihilations at SLAC and DESY, a considerable effort has gone into looking for them in other types of reactions. Both neutrino interactions and photoproduction have provided further data on the production and decay of D mesons, but little has emerged concerning purely hadronic studies.some results from a CERN/Collège de France/Heidelberg/Karlsruhe collaboration using the Split Field Magnet at the CERN Intersecting Storage Rings (ISR) now show definite signs of D meson production in proton-proton collisions

  19. Charm photoproduction via fragmentation

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The next-to-leading open charm production in γp collisions is calculated within the perturbative fragmentation functions formalism, to allow resummation of αslog(p2T/m2) terms. In the large pT region (pT>m) the result is consistent with the fixed order NLO calculation, small discrepancies being found for very large differ in the definition and the relative contribution of the direct and resolved terms, but essentially agree on their sum. The resummation is found to lead a reduced sensitivity to the choice of the renormalization/ factorization scale

    The partial decay width $R_c$ of the $Z$ into $c\\bar{c}$ quark pair and the number of charm quarks $n_c$ per $b$ decay are measured with the DELPHI detector at \\mbox{LEP 1}. Particle identification provides clear $D^0$, $D^+$, $D_s^+$ and $\\Lambda_c^+$ signatures. The charm hadron production rate is measured in each channel by a fit to the scaled energy, impact parameter information and the invariant mass spectrum. Two measurements of $R_c$ are presented, from the $D^{*+}$ production rate and from the overall charm counting, including strange charm baryon production, in $c\\bar{c}$ events. The multiplicity $n_c$, which includes hidden $c\\bar{c}$ and strange charm baryon production, is inferred from the charm counting in $b\\bar{b}$ events. The final results are $R_c = 0.1665 \\pm 0.0095$ and $n_c = 1.166 \\pm 0.086$.

    New results presented by the LHCb collaboration on the decay of particles containing a “charm” quark delve deeper into the mystery of matter-antimatter asymmetry.   A view of the LHCb experimental cavern. (Photo: Maximilien Brice/CERN) One of the biggest challenges in physics is to understand why everything we see in our universe seems to be formed only of matter, whereas the Big Bang should have created equal amounts of matter and antimatter. CERN’s LHCb experiment is one of the best hopes for physicists looking to solve this longstanding mystery. At the VIII International Workshop on Charm Physics, which took place in Bologna earlier this month, the LHCb Collaboration presented the most precise measurement to date of a phenomenon called Charge-Parity (CP) violation among particles that contain a charm quark. CP symmetry states that laws of physics are the same if a particle is interchanged with its anti-particle (the “C” part) and if its spatia...

    In a previous work we presented a theoretical analysis of the $\\Lambda_b \\to J/\\psi K^- p$ reaction from where a recent experiment by the LHCb collaboration at CERN claimed the existence of two hidden charm pentaquarks, $P_c(4380)^+$ and $P_c(4450)^+$. In that work we focused only on the $\\Lambda(1405)$ and $P_c(4450)^+$ signals and discussed the possible explanation of this pentaquark state within the picture of a dynamical meson-baryon molecule made up mostly from $\\bar D^* \\Sigma_c$ and $\\bar D^* \\Sigma^*_c$ components. In the present work we improve upon the previous one by considering the total $K^- p$ and $J/\\psi p$ data including all the relevant resonances contributing to the spectra, and discuss the possible nature of both $P_c(4380)^+$ and $P_c(4450)^+$. We also discuss several important topics, like the effect of a contact term in the reaction, neglected in the analysis of the original experimental work, the viability of reproducing the data without the $P_c(4380)^+$ and the possible quantum number...

  4. Dense Baryonic Matter

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Experiments on strangeness production in nucleus-nucleus collisions at SIS energies address fundamental aspects of modern nuclear physics: the determination of the nuclear equation-of-state at high baryon densities and the properties of hadrons in dense nuclear matter. Experimental data and theoretical results will be reviewed. Future experiments at the FAIR accelerator aim at the exploration of the QCD phase diagram at highest baryon densities. The proposal for the Compressed Baryonic Matter (CBM) experiment will be presented. (author)

    Cheng, H Y; Cheng, Hai-Yang; Yang, Kwei-Chou

    2002-01-01

    We present a systematical study of two-body and three-body charmless baryonic B decays. Branching ratios for two-body modes are in general very small, typically less than $10^{-6}$, except for the decays with a $\\Delta$ resonance in the final state. For example, the branching ratio of the tree-dominated decay $B^-\\to p \\bar\\Delta^{--}$ can be as large as $1\\times 10^{-5}$, and the penguin-dominated decay $B^-\\to\\Sigma^+\\bar\\Delta^{--}$ is at the level of $1\\times 10^{-6}$. For three-body modes we focus on octet baryon final states. The leading three-dominated modes are $\\bar B^0\\to p\\bar n\\pi^-(\\rho^-), n\\bar p\\pi^+(\\rho^+)$ with a branching ratio of order $4\\times 10^{-6}$ for $\\bar B^0\\to p\\bar n\\pi^-$ and $1\\times 10^{-5}$ for $\\bar B^0\\to p\\bar n\\rho^-$. The first measurement of the penguin-dominated decay $B^-\\to p\\bar pK^-$ by Belle indicates that the $q^2$ dependence of heavy-to-light baryon form factors is favored to be of the monopole form. While the penguin-dominated decays $B^-\\to p\\bar p K^{-(*)}$...

  6. New results on CLEO`s heavy quarks - bottom and charm

    While the top quark is confined to virtual reality for CLEO, the increased luminosity of the Cornell Electron Storage Ring (CESR) and the improved photon detection capabilities of the CLEO`s {open_quotes}heavy{close_quotes} quarks - bottom and charm. I will describe new results in the B meson sector including the first observation of exclusive b {yields} ulv decays, upper limits on gluonic penguin decay rates, and precise measurements of semileptonic and hadronic b {yields} c branching fractions. The charmed hadron results that are discussed include the observation of isospin violation in D{sub s}*{sup +} decays, an update on measurements of the D{sub s}{sup +} decay constant, and the observation of a new excited {Xi}{sub c} charmed baryon. These measurements have had a large impact on our understanding of heavy quark physics.

    2008-01-01

    We present recent results from BABAR experiment for D0-D0 mixing measurements. Mixing parameters can be measured in different ways using different D0 decay modes, here we discuss the most sensitive analyses such as DO→K+π- where we had the first evidence of charm mixing, the measurement of the ratio of lifetimes of the decays DO→K+K-and DO→π- relative to D0→K-π+, the time dependent Dalitz plot analysis of D0→K+π-π0.New limits on CP-violating time-integrated asymmetries in D0→K+K- and D0→π+π- are also discussed. The analyses presented are based on 384 fb-1 data collected with the BABAR detector at the PEP-Ⅱ asymmetric B Factory.

  8. Charm photoproduction via fragmentation

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The next-to-leading open charm production in γp collisions is calculated within the Perturbative Fragmentation Functions formalism, to allow resummation of αs log(pT2/m2) terms. In the large pT region (pT>m) the result is consistent with the fixed order NLO calculation, small discrepancies being found for very large pT and at the edge of phase space. The two approaches differ in the definition and the relative contribution of the direct and resolved terms, but essentially agree on their sum. The resummation is found to lead to a reduced sensitivity to the choice of the renormalization/factorization scale. (orig.)

  9. Calculation of hadronic transition amplitudes in charm physics

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Transitions of charmed hadrons are of significant importance, since they provide possibilities to extract the CKM matrix elements Vcd and Vcs from experimental data as well as interesting channels to search for new physics effects. However, quarks are bound in hadrons, and it is necessary to describe this effect in a reliable way, to study the underlying flavour dynamics. For this, one has to use nonperturbative tools, to determine the corresponding transition amplitudes. The results of such calculations can furthermore be of use, to test the predictions of QCD and to contribute to a deeper understanding of the structure of hadrons. In this thesis two topics are investigated using the method of QCD light-cone sum rules (LCSRs). The first topic consists in the form factors of the semileptonic decays D → πlνl and D → Klνl, for which new results are calculated using up-to-date input values. Since LCSRs are not applicable in the whole range of kinematics, they are extrapolated by the use of appropriate parametrisations and the results agree well with experimental data. The second topic are the transitions of charmed baryons to a nucleon. Here the corresponding transition form factors and in addition the hadronic ΛcD(*)N and ΣcD(*)N coupling constants are calculated - the latter by the consideration of double dispersion relations. These coupling constants are of special interest for the description of hadronic interactions, like open charm production in proton-antiprotoncollisions. Furthermore there appears the problem, that both parity states of a baryon contribute to the considered functional representation, for which a consistent way to separate them is presented. (orig.)

  11. Measurement of the cross section of charmed hadrons and the nuclear dependence alpha

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Blanco-Covarrubias, E.Alejandro; /San Luis Potosi U.

    2009-12-01

    With data from the SELEX experiment we study charm hadro-production. We report the differential production cross sections as function of the longitudinal and transverse momentum, as well as for two different target materials, of 14 charmed hadron and/or their decay modes. This is the most extensive study to date. SELEX is a fixed target experiment at Fermilab with high forward acceptance; it took data during 1996-1997 with 600 GeV/c {Sigma}{sup -} and {pi}{sup -}, and 540 GeV/c proton and {pi}{sup +} beams. It used 5 target foils (two copper and three diamond). We use the results to determine {alpha}, used in parametrizing the production cross section as {infinity} A{sup {alpha}}, where A is the mass number of the target nuclei. We found within our statistics that {alpha} is independent of the longitudinal momentum fraction x{sub F} in the interval 0.1 < x{sub F} < 1.0, with {alpha} = 0.778 {+-} 0.014. The average value of {alpha} for charm production by pion beams is {alpha}{sub meson} = 0.850 {+-} 0.028. This is somewhat larger than the corresponding average {alpha}{sub baryon} = 0.755 {+-} 0.016 for charm production by baryon beams ({Sigma}{sup -} and protons).

We report the differential production cross sections as function of the longitudinal and transverse momentum, as well as for two different target materials, of 14 charmed hadron and/or their decay modes. This is the most extensive study to date. SELEX is a fixed target experiment at Fermilab with high forward acceptance; it took data during 1996-1997 with 600 GeV/c Σ- and π-, and 540 GeV/c proton and π+ beams. It used 5 target foils (two copper and three diamond). We use the results to determine α, used in parametrizing the production cross section as ∞ Aα, where A is the mass number of the target nuclei. We found within our statistics that α is independent of the longitudinal momentum fraction xF in the interval 0.1 < xF < 1.0, with α = 0.778 ± 0.014. The average value of α} for charm production by pion beams is α meson = 0.850 ± 0.028. This is somewhat larger than the corresponding average αbaryon = 0.755 ± 0.016 for charm production by baryon beams (Σ- and protons).

    Bijker, R

    1999-01-01

    We discuss recent calculations of the mass spectrum, electromagnetic and strong couplings of baryon resonances. The calculations are done in a collective constituent model for the nucleon, in which the resonances are interpreted as rotations and vibrations of a symmetric top with a prescribed distribution of the charge and magnetization. We analyze recent data on eta-photo- and eta-electroproduction, and the tensor analyzing power in deuteron scattering.

The calculated charge radius of the show that kaon loop effects can play a significant role in the neutron electric form factor. Furthermore. we derive generalized Caldi-Pagels relations between various charge radii which are free of chiral loop effects.

    2004-01-01

    We explore the usefulness of the existing relations between the S-matrix and time delay in characterizing baryon resonances in pion-nucleon scattering. We draw attention to the fact that the existence of a positive maximum in time delay is a necessary criterion for the existence of a resonance and should be used as a constraint in conventional analyses which locate resonances from poles of the S-matrix and Argand diagrams. The usefulness of the time delay plots of resonances is demonstrated through a detailed analysis of the time delay in several partial waves of πN elastic scattering.

  17. Suppressed decay into open charm for the Y(4260) being an hybrid

    2005-01-01

    We investigate the Y(4260) resonance recently discovered by the Babar collaboration. We propose the observation of its decay into J/psi pi pi and its non observation into open charm as a consequence of it being a charmonium hybrid state with a magnetic constituent gluon. We prove a selection rule forbidding its decay into two S-wave charmed mesons in any potential model. We suggest a generalisation of the selection rule based only on the heavy quark nature of the charm.

    Burmistrov, L; Ivanov, Yu; Massacrier, L; Robbe, P; Scandale, W; Stocchi, A

    2016-01-01

    The magnetic moments of baryons containing u,d and s quarks have been extensively studied and measured. The experimental results are all obtained by a well-assessed method that consists in measuring the polarisation vector of the incoming particles and the precession angle when the particle is travelling through an intense magnetic field. The polarization is evaluated by analysing the angular distribution of the decay products. No measurement of magnetic moments of charm or beauty baryons (and τ leptons) has been performed so far. The main reason is the lifetimes of charm/beauty baryons, too short to measure the magnetic moment by standard techniques. Historically, the prediction of baryon magnetic moments was one of the striking successes of the quark model. The importance of the measurement of heavy quark magnetic moment is to test the possibility that the charmed and/or beauty quarks has an anomalous magnetic moment, arising if those quarks are composite objects. Measurements on magnetic moments of heav...

  19. decays to baryons

    Indian Academy of Sciences (India)

    Torsten Leddig

    2012-11-01

    From inclusive measurements, it is known that about 7% of all mesons decay into final states with baryons. In these decays, some striking features become visible compared to mesonic decays. The largest branching fractions come with quite moderate multiplicities of 3–4 hadrons. We note that two-body decays to baryons are suppressed relative to three- and four-body decays. In most of these analyses, the invariant baryon–antibaryon mass shows an enhancement near the threshold. We propose a phenomenological interpretation of this quite common feature of hadronization to baryons.

  20. The Role and Detectability of the Charm Contribution to Ultra High Energy Neutrino Fluxes

    CERN Document Server

    Gandhi, Raj; Watanabe, Atsushi

    2009-01-01

    It is widely believed that charm meson production and decay may play an important role in high energy astrophysical sources of neutrinos, especially those that are baryon-rich, providing an environment conducive to pp interactions. Using slow-jet supernovae (SJS) as an example of such a source, we study the detectability of high-energy neutrinos, paying particular attention to those produced from charmed-mesons. We highlight important distinguishing features in the ultra-high energy neutrino flux which would act as markers for the role of charm in the source. In particular, charm leads to significant event rates at higher energies, after the conventional (pi, K) neutrino fluxes fall off. We calculate event rates both for a nearby single source and for diffuse SJS fluxes for an IceCube-like detector. By comparing muon event rates for the conventional and prompt fluxes in different energy bins, we demonstrate the striking energy dependence in the rates induced by the presence of charm. We also show that it lead...

  1. Lattice calculation of nonleptonic charm decays

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The decays of charmed mesons into two body nonleptonic final states are investigated. Weak interaction amplitudes of interest in these decays are extracted from lattice four-point correlation functions using a effective weak Hamiltonian including effects to order Gf in the weak interactions yet containing effects to all orders in the strong interactions. The lattice calculation allows a quantitative examination of non-spectator processes in charm decays helping to elucidate the role of effects such as color coherence, final state interactions and the importance of the so called weak annihilation process. For D → Kπ, we find that the non-spectator weak annihilation diagram is not small, and we interpret this as evidence for large final state interactions. Moreover, there is indications of a resonance in the isospin 1/2 channel to which the weak annihilation process contributes exclusively. Findings from the lattice calculation are compared to results from the continuum vacuum saturation approximation and amplitudes are examined within the framework of the 1/N expansion. Factorization and the vacuum saturation approximation are tested for lattice amplitudes by comparing amplitudes extracted from lattice four-point functions with the same amplitude extracted from products of two-point and three-point lattice correlation functions arising out of factorization and vacuum saturation

  2. Mass and magnetic dipole moment of negative parity heavy baryons with spin--3/2

    2015-01-01

    We calculate the mass and residue of the heavy spin--3/2 negative parity baryons with single heavy bottom or charm quark by the help of a two-point correlation function. We use the obtained results to investigate the diagonal radiative transitions among the baryons under consideration. In particular, we compute corresponding transition form factors via light cone QCD sum rules which are then used to obtain the magnetic dipole moments of the heavy spin--3/2 negative parity baryons. We remove the pollutions coming from the positive parity spin--3/2 and positive/negative parity spin--1/2 baryons by constructing sum rules for different Lorentz structures. We compare the results obtained with the existing theoretical predictions.

    It is proposed that a Tau Charm Factory represents a natural extension of CEBAF into higher energy domains. The exciting nature of the physics of charm quarks and tau leptons is briefly reviewed and it is suggested that the concept of a linac-ring collider as a Tau Charm Factory at CEBAF should be seriously studied.

    The experimental data of BELLE Collaboration on the exclusive charmed meson pair production in the process of monophotonic $e^+e^-$-annihilation ($e^+e^-\\to \\gamma^* \\to D\\bar D$) has been studied. It has been shown that these data is described satisfactorily in the frame work of constituent quark model. Our studies have demonstrated that the central production process $e^+e^-\\to e^+e^-\\gamma\\gamma \\to e^+e^-D\\bar D +X$ and the process of monophotonic $e^+e^-$-annihilation yield comparable numbers of the charmed meson pairs.

    The integrated branching fraction of the process B{yields}X{sub s}l{sup +}l{sup -} is dominated by resonance background from narrow charmonium states, such as B{yields}X{sub s}{psi}{yields}X{sub s}l{sup +}l{sup -}, which exceeds the non-resonant charm-loop contribution by two orders of magnitude. The origin of this fact is discussed in view of the general expectation of quark-hadron duality. The situation in B{yields}X{sub s}l{sup +}l{sup -} is contrasted with charm-penguin amplitudes in two-body hadronic B decays of the type B{yields}{pi}{pi}, for which it is demonstrated that resonance effects and the potentially non-perturbative c anti c threshold region do not invalidate the standard picture of QCD factorization. This holds irrespective of whether the charm quark is treated as a light or a heavy quark. (orig.)

    We determine the strong couplings of three mesons that involve, at least, one $\\eta_c$ or $J/\\psi$ meson, within the framework of a constituent-quark model by means of relativistic dispersion formulations. For strong couplings of $J/\\psi$ mesons to two charmed mesons, our approach leads to predictions roughly twice as large as those arising from QCD sum rules.

    The LHCb Collaboration at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN discovered two pentaquark states P_{c}(4380) and P_{c}(4450). These two hidden-charm states are interpreted as the loosely bound Σ_{c}(2455)D^{*} and Σ_{c}^{*}(2520)D^{*} molecular states in the boson exchange interaction model, which provides an explanation for why the experimental width of P_{c}(4450) is much narrower than that of P_{c}(4380). The discovery of the new resonances P_{c}(4380) and P_{c}(4450), indeed, opens a new page for hadron physics. The partners of P_{c}(4380) and P_{c}(4450) should be pursued in future experiments.

  10. Properties of excited charm and charm-strange mesons

    Science.gov (United States)

    Godfrey, Stephen; Moats, Kenneth

    2016-02-01

    We calculate the properties of excited charm and charm-strange mesons. We use the relativized quark model to calculate their masses and wave functions that are used to calculate radiative transition partial widths and the 3P0 quark-pair-creation model to calculate their strong decay widths. We use these results to make quark model spectroscopic assignments for recently observed charm and charm-strange mesons. In particular, we find that the properties of the DJ(2550 )0 and DJ*(2600 )0 are consistent with those of the 2 1S0 (c u ¯) and the 2 3S1 (c u ¯) states respectively, and the D1*(2760 )0, D3*(2760 )-,and DJ(2750 )0with those of the 1 3D1 (c u ¯), 1 3D3 (d c ¯), and 1 D2(c u ¯) states respectively. We tentatively identify the DJ*(3000 )0 as the 1 3F4 (c u ¯ ) and favor the DJ(3000 )0 to be the 3 1S0 (c u ¯ ) although we do not rule out the 1 F3 and 1 F3' assignment. For the recently observed charm-strange mesons we identify the Ds1 *(2709 )±,Ds1 *(2860 )-,andDs3 *(2860 )-as the 2 3S1 (c s ¯), 1 3D1 (s c ¯), and 1 3D3 (s c ¯) states respectively and suggest that the Ds J(3044 )± is most likely the Ds 1(2 P1' ) or Ds 1(2 P1) state although it might be the Ds2 *(2 3P2 ) with the D K final state too small to be observed with current statistics. Based on the predicted properties of excited states, that they do not have too large a total width and that they have a reasonable branching ratio to simple final states, we suggest states that should be able to be found in the near future. We expect that the tables of properties summarizing our results will be useful for interpreting future observations of charm and charm-strange mesons.

  11. Measurement of the semi-leptonic branching ratio and the baryonic contribution in b quark disintegrations

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The b quark semi-leptonic branching ratios are measured using the hadronic events containing one or two leptons. 950 000 Z0 hadronic disintegrations were obtained in the DELPHI experiment during 1991-1992. Thus one of the elements of the CKM matrix may be determined. Using information contained in hadron jets with two opposite-sign leptons, the cascade ratios of the beauty hadron semi-leptonic disintegrations are evaluated. The baryon production rate in beauty events is analyzed, and the charmed Lambda baryon production cross-section is measured. 93 figs., 23 tabs., 75 refs

    Wang, Guang-Juan; Ma, Li; Liu, Xiang; Zhu, Shi-Lin

    2016-01-01

    The magnetic moment of a baryon state is an equally important dynamical observable as its mass, which encodes crucial information of its underlying structure. According to the different color-flavor structure, we have calculated the magnetic moments of the hidden-charm pentaquark states with $J^P={\\frac{1}{2}}^{\\pm}$, ${\\frac{3}{2}}^{\\pm}$, ${\\frac{5}{2}}^{\\pm}$ and ${\\frac{7}{2}}^{+}$ in the molecular model, the diquark-triquark model and the diquark-diquark-antiquark model respectively. Although a good description for the pentaquark mass spectrum and decay patterns has been obtained in all the three models, different color-flavor structures lead to different magnetic moments, which can be used to pin down their inner structures and distinguish various models.

  13. Hierarchy of lifetimes of charmed and beautiful hadrons

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Pre-asymptotic corrections to total hadronic widths of weak decays of charmed and beautiful hadrons are considered. The main emphasis is put on effects due to the spectator quark. The so called hybrid logarithms emerging from the domain of momenta R-2 2 Q2 (R is the hadronic size, mQ is the heavy quark mass) are taken into account, a new element of the analysis. For chamed hadrons the pre-asymptotic corrections are of order unity, and the corresponding estimates of non leptonic widths are of semiquantitative character. The hierarchy of hadronic widths for D, F mesons and Λc, Ξc(A), Ωc baryons is establish. The lifetime of Ωc0 turns out to be the smallest. The difference in lifetimes of beautiful hadrons is predicted to be definitely less than a few percent

  14. Doubly Heavy Tetraquarks and Baryons

    CERN Document Server

    Karliner, Marek

    2014-01-01

    During the last three years strong experimental evidence from $B$ and charm factories has been accumulating for the existence of exotic hadronic quarkonia, narrow resonances which cannot be made from a quark and an antiquark. Their masses and decay modes show that they contain a heavy quark-antiquark pair, but their quantum numbers are such that they must also contain a light quark-antiquark pair. The theoretical challenge has been to determine the nature of these resonances. The main possibilities are that they are either "genuine tetraquarks", i.e. two quarks and two antiquarks within one confinement volume, or "hadronic molecules" of two heavy-light mesons. In the last few months there as been more and more evidence in favor of the latter. I discuss the experimental data and its interpretation and provide fairly precise predictions for masses and quantum numbers of the additional exotic states which are naturally expected in the molecular picture but have yet to be observed. In addition, I provide argument...

    We show that in a quark model scheme the use of a screened potential, suggested by lattice QCD, instead of an infinitely rising one with the interquark distance, provides a more adequate description of the high-energy baryon spectrum. In particular an almost perfect parallelism between the predicted and observed number of states comes out throwing new light about the so-called missing resonance problem.

    1979-05-01

    A remeasurement of the resonance near E/sub cm/ = 3.77 GeV in the e/sup +/e/sup -/ annihilation is presented. The properties of the resonance are used to deduce branching fractions of charmed mesons into hadronic final states. Several previously unseen decay modes are reported. Decays into Cabibbo suppressed final states are observed. The inclusive properties of D meson decays are studied, including strangeness and charged particle multiplicity. The semileptonic branching fractions for D/sup 0/ and D/sup -+/ are measured, providing a determination of the relative lifetimes of these particles.

    We derive an energy bound for a `baryonic' D5-brane probe in the $adS_5\\times S^5$ background near the horizon of $N$ D3-branes. Configurations saturating the bound are shown to be 1/4 supersymmetric $S^5$-wrapped D5-branes with $N$ singularities at arbitrary positions. Previous results for $N$ coincident singularities are recovered as a special case. We derive a similar energy bound for a `baryonic' M5-brane probe in the background of $N$ M5-branes. Configurations saturating the bound are again 1/4 supersymmetric and, in the $adS_7\\times S^4$ near-horizon limit, provide a worldvolume realization of the `baryon string' vertex of the (2,0)-supersymmetric six-dimensional conformal field theory on coincident M5-branes. For the full M5-background we find a worldvolume realization of the Hannany-Witten effect in M-theory.

  19. Baryon production at PEP

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Measurements of inclusive Λ + anti Λ production for 1.0 less than or equal to p less than or equal to 10.0 GeV/c and p + anti p production for 0.4 less than or equal to p less than or equal to 2.0 GeV/c show significant baryon production in e+e- annihilation at E/sub cm/ = 29 GeV. Λ + anti Λ production represents 0.2 Λ's or anti Λ's per PEP event while the observed p + anti p production implies all baryon-antibaryon pair production is occurring at least as often as 0.6 per event, depending on the yet to be measured p + anti p production at high momentum. Comparisons are made with the first theoretical attempts to account for baryon production at these energies

  20. Open questions in charm decays deserving an answer

    Bigi, Ikaros I

    1994-01-01

    A list is given of those open questions concerning the dynamics of charm decays where there exists a strong need for an answer. Such a need is based on lessons to be learnt about QCD -- either in their own right or for a better understanding of B physics -- or on searches for New Physics with a small background from the Standard Model. The major items on this list are: lifetimes of the \\Xi _c^{0,+} baryons; semileptonic branching ratios of D_s, \\Lambda _c and \\Xi _c hadrons and absolute branching ratios for those states; radiative decays D\\rightarrow \\gamma K^*,\\, \\gamma \\rho /\\omega , \\, D_s \\rightarrow \\gamma \\phi /\\omega ,\\, D\\rightarrow l^+l^-K/K^*; D^0-\\bar D^0 oscillations down to a sensitivity below 10^{-4} and CP asymmetries in non-leptonic D decays down to 0.1\\%. Ongoing and already approved experiments will produce important new insights, which are unlikely to provide sufficient answers to all these questions yet. It is discussed how a third-generation fixed-target experiment like CHARM2000 or a \\ta...

  1. The Static Baryon Potential

    2002-01-01

    Using state of the art lattice techniques we investigate the static baryon potential. We employ the multi-hit procedure for the time links and a variational approach to determine the ground state with sufficient accuracy that, for distances up to $\\sim 1.2$ fm, we can distinguish the $Y$- and $\\Delta$- Ans\\"atze for the baryonic Wilson area law. Our analysis shows that the $\\Delta$-Ansatz is favoured. This result is also supported by the gauge-invariant nucleon wave function which we measure for the first time.

  2. ARGUS results on beauty and charm

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Using the ARGUS detector at the e+e- storage ring DORIS II at DESY new results on beauty and charm physics have been obtained. With more data an update on B0B-bar0 mixing is given for the mixing parameter r = (21±6) %. The investigation of the decay B-bar0 → D*+l-ν allows a determination of the Kobayashi-Maskawa element |Vcb| = 0.052±0.011. The lifetime ratio of charged and neutral B mesons is measured to be τB+/τB0 = 1.00±0.23±0.14. In semileptonic B decays, as well as in exclusive B decays, no significant signals are found for b→u or b→s transitions. In charm physics, the spin of the D*(2459) is shown to be J=2. The enhancement, previously known as the D*(2420), seen in the final state D*(2010)+π-, is resolved into two relatively narrow resonances separated in mass by approximately 40 MeV/c2. The results of a decay angular analysis are in good agreement with the interpretation of the two states as L=1 D mesons of spin-parities 1+ and 2+. The charged isospin partner of the D*(2459)0 is observed at a mass of (2469±4±6) MeV/c2, decaying to D0π+. The isospin mass splitting is measured to be (14±5±8) MeV/c2. Finally, the first excited P-wave Ds meson has been observed in the decay D*s(2536) → D*+Ks0. (author)

    We report the measurements of $\\Sigma (1385)$ and $\\Lambda (1520)$ production in $p+p$ and $Au+Au$ collisions at $\\sqrt{s_{NN}} = 200$ GeV from the STAR collaboration. The yields and the transverse momentum spectra are presented and discussed in terms of chemical and thermal freeze-out conditions and compared to model predictions. Thermal and microscopic models do not adequately describe the yields of all the resonances produced in central $Au+Au$ collisions. Our results indicate that there may be a time-span between chemical and thermal freeze-out during which elastic hadronic interactions occur.

    Current issues and problems in the physics of ground- and excited-state baryons are considered, and are classified into those which should be resolved by CEBAF in its present form, and those which may require CEBAF to undergo an energy upgrade to 8 GeV or more. Recent theoretical developments designed to address these problems are outlined.

  7. Spontaneous Baryogenesis without Baryon Isocurvature

    CERN Document Server

    De Simone, Andrea

    2016-01-01

    We propose a new class of spontaneous baryogenesis models that does not produce baryon isocurvature perturbations. The baryon chemical potential in these models is independent of the field value of the baryon-generating scalar, hence the scalar field fluctuations are blocked from propagating into the baryon isocurvature. We demonstrate this mechanism in simple examples where spontaneous baryogenesis is driven by a non-canonical scalar field. The suppression of the baryon isocurvature allows spontaneous baryogenesis to be compatible even with high-scale inflation.

    Flavor changing neutral currents (FCNCs) in the charm system are highly suppressed in the standard model (SM). The theoretical strategies used to suppress FCNCs induced by supersymmetry in the strange and beauty systems need not apply to the charm system. The charm changing neutral current decay D^0-> mu^+ mu^- is studied phenomenologically in the framework of supersymmetric extensions of the standard model. It is found that the decay branching ratio can be enhanced to about 10^{-10}, by havi...

    We review the original goals of charm hadroproduction experiments at fixed target energies, initially intended to explore perturbative QCD at the charm mass scale. High- statistics studies with π- beams suggest strong non-perturbative effects at large xF. Recent results from proton and Σ- beams show further systematics of non-perturbative behavior. This review summarizes the systematics of these effects as developed for different charm hadrons and different beam particles

  11. CP Asymmetries in Many-Body Final States in Beauty & Charm Transitions

    CERN Document Server

    Bigi, I I

    2015-01-01

    Our community has focused on two-body final states (FS) in $B$ & $D$ decays. The SM produces at least the leading source of CP violation in $B$ transitions; none has been established yet in charm decays. It is crucial to measure three- and four-body FS with accuracy and to compare with predictions based on refined theoretical tools. Correlations between different FS based on CPT invariance are often not obvious, how to apply them and where. We have to probe regional asymmetries and use refined parametrization of the CKM matrix. One uses (broken) U- & V-spin symmetries for spectroscopy. The situations with weak decays of hadrons are much more complex. The impact of strong re-scattering is large, and it connects U- \\& V-spin symmetries. Drawing diagrams often does not mean we understand the underlying dynamics. We have to probe the decays of beauty \\& charm baryons. I discuss the `strategies' more than the `tactics'.

    A detailed study of the impact of the data collected by the European Muon Collaboration (EMC) on the parton distribution function (PDF) of the charm quark is presented. The analysis is performed in the NNPDF framework, and the charm PDF is freely parametrized on equal footing as light quark and gluon distributions. We find that variations in the treatment of EMC data do not modify the charm PDF and do not affect our previous conclusion on the presence of an intrinsic component in the charm PDF.

    Electromagnetic resonance properties are uniquely defined at the pole and do not depend on the separation of the resonance from background or the decay channel. Photon-nucleon branching ratios are nowadays often quoted at the pole, and we generalize the considerations to the case of virtual photons. We derive and compare relations for nucleon to baryon transition form factors both for the Breit-Wigner and the pole positions. Using the MAID2007 and SAID SM08 partial wave analyses of pion electroproduction data, we compare the $G_M$, $G_E$, and $G_C$ form factors for the $\\Delta(1232)$ resonance excitation at the Breit-Wigner resonance and pole positions up to $Q^2=5$ GeV$^2$. We also explore the $E/M$ and $S/M$ ratios as functions of $Q^2$. For pole and residue extraction, we apply the Laurent + Pietarinen method.

  15. Effective Degrees of Freedom in Baryon Spectroscopy

    Science.gov (United States)

    Santopinto, E.; Ferretti, J.

    2016-10-01

    Three quark and quark-diquark models are characterized by several missing resonances, even if in the latter case the state space is a reduced one. Moreover, even quark-diquark models show some differences in their predictions for missing states. After several years of discussion, we still do not know whether baryons can be completely described in terms of three quark models or if diquark correlations have to be taken into account; another possibility, suggested in Santopinto (Phys Rev C 72:022201, 2005), Ferretti et al. (Phys Rev C 83:065204, 2011) and Galatà and Santopinto (Phys Rev C 86:045202, 2012), is that the previous pictures (three-quark and quark-diquark) represent the dominant descriptions of baryons at different energy scales. New experiments may be planned at Jlab (JLab12), Bes, Belle and LHCb in order to answer this fundamental open question.

While magnetic fields can couple states of different spin, we show that, because of Fermi statistics, this coupling of different spin states does not involve baryon-number--changing transitions and, therefore, a two-state analysis ignoring spin is sufficient even in the presence of electromagnetic fields. We also enumerate the conditions necessary for...

  19. Bottom Baryon Decays to Pseudoscalar Meson and Pentaquark

    CERN Document Server

    Cheng, Hai-Yang

    2015-01-01

    Based on SU(3) flavor symmetry, we decompose the decay amplitudes of bottom baryon decays to a pseudoscalar meson and an octet or a decuplet pentaquark in terms of three invariant amplitudes $T_1$ and $T_{2,3}$ corresponding to external $W$-emission and internal $W$-emission diagrams, respectively. For antitriplet bottom baryons $\\Lambda_b^0,\\Xi_b^0$ and $\\Xi_b^-$, their decays to a decuplet pentaquark proceed only through the internal $W$-emission diagram. Assuming the dominance from the external $W$-emission amplitudes, we present an estimate of the decay rates relative to $\\Lambda_b^0\\to P_p^+K^-$, where $P_p^+$ is the hidden-charm pentaquark with the same light quark content as the proton. Hence, our numerical results will provide a very useful guideline to the experimental search for pentaquarks in bottom baryon decays. For example, $\\Xi_b^0\\to P_{\\Sigma^+}K^-$, $\\Xi_b^-\\to P_{\\Sigma^-}\\bar K^0$, $\\Omega_b^-\\to P_{\\Xi^-}\\bar K^0$ and $\\Omega_b^-\\to P_{\\Xi^0}K^-$ may have rates comparable to that of $\\Lam...

    We extend an earlier study of the baryon magnetic moments in chiral perturbation theory by the explicit inclusion of the spin-3/2 decuplet resonances. We find that the corrections induced by these heavier degrees of freedom are relatively small in a covariant framework where unphysical spin-1/2 modes are removed. Consequently, implementing the leading SU(3)-breaking corrections given by both the baryon and decuplet contributions, we obtain a description of the baryon-octet magnetic moments that is better than the Coleman-Glashow relations. Finally, we discuss the uncertainties and compare between heavy baryon and covariant approaches.

    1998-01-01

    We show that the presence of residual Bose-Einstein correlations may affect the resonant contribution of hadronic charm decays where two identical pions appear in the final state. The distortion of the phase space of the reaction would be visible in the dalitz plot. The decay D+ --> K- pi+ pi+ is discussed but results can be generalized to any decay with identical bosons.

    This note presents a collection of mass distributions for dimuons and charm hadrons collected by the LHCb experiment between 2011 and 2015. 1.2 billion dimuons and 1.4 billion charm hadrons have been collected during this data-taking period

  6. A tau -- charm -- factory at Argonne

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Depending on the beam energy setting, the τ -- charm -- factory will be optimized to study physics with τ leptons, with charmed mesons, or with charmonium states. This report gives a short overview of the physics of these topics. Also discussed are the detectors and the costs associated with this project

  7. Charm and beauty physics at Fermilab

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The status of charm and beauty physics studies at Fermilab is reviewed. Data from fixed target experiments on charm production, semi-leptonic decay, and Cabibbo suppressed decays as well as charmonium studies in antiproton annihilation are described. In addition beauty results from CDF and E653 are reviewed and prospects for studies of B physics at collider detectors are discussed

  8. Photoproduction of charmed mesons: study of charmed mesons decays involving two charged kaons in the final state

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We present a study of charmed mesons decays involving two charged kaons in the final state. The experimental results are obtained from the data of the CERN NA14/2 experiment in a photon beam of mean energy 90 GeV. The main component of the apparatus is a silicon vertex detector made of an active target and a telescope of microstrips planes, the high spatial resolution of which allows to separate vertices and to measure the charmed mesons distance of flight. An electromagnetic calorimeter enables us to search for decay modes involving a π0. We have observed the charmed mesons D0, D+, Ds+ and their antiparticles in six different decay modes, two of which are new: Φπ+ π- and Φπ+π0. The results obtained on branching ratios are in agreement with theoretical predictions except those on the Φπ+π0 mode for which the predictions on the resonant mode Φp+ are not reproduced by the data

  9. Evidence for the Heavy Baryon Resonance State Lambda b*0 Observed with the CDF II Detector, and Studies of New Particle Tracking Technologies Using the LANSCE Proton Beam

    Science.gov (United States)

    Palni, Prabhakar

    To discover and probe the properties of new particles, we need to collide highly energetic particles. The Tevatron at Fermilab has collided protons and anti-protons at very high energies. These collisions produce short lived and stable particles, some known and some previously unknown. The CDF detector is used to study the products of such collisions and discover new elementary particles. To study the interaction between high energy charged particles and the detector materials often requires development of new instruments. Thus this dissertation involves a measurement at a contemporary experiment and development of technologies for related future experiments that will build on the contemporary one. Using data from proton-antiproton collisions at sqrt(s) = 1.96TeV recorded by the CDF II detector at the Fermilab Tevatron, evidence for the excited resonance state Lambda_b. *0 is presented in its Lambda_b. 0 pi. + pi. - decay,followed by the Lambda_b. 0 -> Lambda_c. + pi. - and Lambda_c. + -> p K. - pi. +decays. The analysis is based on a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 9.6 fb. -1 collected by an online event selection process basedon charged particle tracks displaced from the proton-antiproton interaction point. The significance of the observed signal is 3.5sigma The mass of the observed state is found to be 5919.22 +/- 0.76 MeV/c 2 in agreement with similar findings in proton-proton collision experiments. To predict the radiation damage to the components of new particle tracking detectors, prototype devices are irradiated at test beam facilities that reproduce the radiation conditions expected. The profile of the test beam and the fluence applied per unit time must be known. We have developed a technique to monitor in real time the beam profile and fluence using an array of pin semiconductor diodes whose forward voltage is linear with fluence over the fluence regime relevant to, for example, silicon tracking detectors in the LHC upgrade era

    We review recent developments in the study of excited baryon spectroscopy in lattice QCD. After introducing the basic methods used to extract masses from correlation functions, we discuss various interpolating fields and lattice actions commonly used in the literature. We present a survey of results of recent calculations of excited baryons in quenched QCD, and outline possible future directions in the study of baryon spectra.

    2015-01-01

    Recent progress in lattice calculations of properties of open-charm mesons, both regular and exotic, is reviewed, with an emphasis on spectroscopy. After reviewing recent calculations of excited state energy levels I will discuss progress in extracting hadronic masses and widths of charmed states from Lattice QCD simulations including low-lying scattering channels directly, to determine phase shift data and bound state/ resonance properties. With regard to other properties results from recent calculations of the $DD^*\\pi$ and $DD\\rho$, $D^*D^*\\rho$ couplings are presented. Beyond regular mesons, searches for explicitly exotic (tetraquark) states are also reviewed.

  13. Dark photons from charm mesons at LHCb

    CERN Document Server

    Ilten, Philip; Williams, Mike; Xue, Wei

    2015-01-01

    We propose a search for dark photons $A^{\\prime}$ at the LHCb experiment using the charm meson decay $D^*(2007)^0 \\!\\to D^0 A^{\\prime}$. At nominal luminosity, $D^{*0} \\!\\to D^0 \\gamma$ decays will be produced at about 700kHz within the LHCb acceptance, yielding over 5 trillion such decays during Run 3 of the LHC. Replacing the photon with a kinetically-mixed dark photon, LHCb is then sensitive to dark photons that decay as $A^{\\prime}\\!\\to e^+e^-$. We pursue two search strategies in this paper. The displaced strategy takes advantage of the large Lorentz boost of the dark photon and the excellent vertex resolution of LHCb, yielding a nearly background-free search when the $A^{\\prime}$ decay vertex is significantly displaced from the proton-proton primary vertex. The resonant strategy takes advantage of the large event rate for $D^{*0} \\!\\to D^0 A^{\\prime}$ and the excellent invariant mass resolution of LHCb, yielding a background-limited search that nevertheless covers a significant portion of the $A^{\\prime}...

  14. Susuks (charm needles) in the craniofacial region

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We conducted a study to determine the numbers of susuks (charm needles) and their distribution in the craniofacial region of susuk wearers, and the sex, racial affiliation, and age of the wearers. In addition, we sought to determine whether the presence of susuks posed any potential hazard to patients undergoing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). We studied various radiographs of 33 susuk wearers (age range, 33-69 years) and investigated the most common sites of insertion in the craniofacial region. A susuk was also suspended inside a 1.5-T MRI machine to determined whether it was attracted by the machine's magnet. The largest number of susuks that we observed in the craniofacial region was 39 pins, and susuks were particularly numerous in Malay Muslim women. Other sites with susuks were the maxillofacial region (except the temporomandibular region) and the forehead. The susuks showed no ferromagnetic characteristics. As susuks are made from gold, they are generally biocompatible with human tissue and do not cause problems to their wearers. Gold and the other minor metal constituents found in susuks have no ferromagnetic characteristics and therefore pose no hazard to patients undergoing MRI. (author)

    2000-01-01

    The algebraic treatment of baryons is extended to strange resonances. Within this framework we study a collective string-like model in which the radial excitations are interpreted as rotations and vibrations of the strings. We derive a mass formula and closed expressions for strong and electromagnetic decay widths and use these to analyze the available experimental data.

  16. Dynamical Structure of Baryons

    CERN Document Server

    Aleksejevs, A

    2013-01-01

    Compton scattering offers a unique opportunity to study the dynamical structure of hadrons over a wide kinematic range, with polarizabilities characterizing the hadron active internal degrees of freedom. We present calculations and detailed analysis of electric and magnetic and the spin-dependent dynamical polarizabilities for the lowest in mass SU(3) octet of baryons. These extensive calculations are made possible by the recent implementation of semi-automatized calculations in chiral perturbation theory which allows evaluating polarizabilities from Compton scattering up to next-to-the-leading order. The dependencies for the range of photon energies covering the majority of the meson photoproduction channels are analyzed.

    The CHARM 2010 meeting had over 30 presentations of experimental results, plus additional future facilities talks just before this summary talk. Since there is not enough time to even summarize all that has been shown from experiments and to recognize all the memorable plots and results - tempting as it is to reproduce the many clean signals and data vs theory figures, the quantum correlations plots, and the D-mixing plots before and after the latest CLEO-c data is added. So, this review will give only my personal observations, exposing my prejudices and my areas of ignorance, no doubt. This overview will be at a fairly high level of abstraction - no re-showing individual plots or results. I ask the forgiveness of those who will have been slighted in this way - meaning all the presents.

  19. Charmed Mesons Produced in e+e- Annihilation

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Goldhaber, G.; Wiss, J. E.

    1980-12-01

    We shall begin our review by summarizing the first experimental indications for the existence of charm as obtained from experiments in e{sup +}e{sup -} annihilation. This will include a brief discussion of the role of charm in the understanding of the {psi} mesons, as well as the unraveling of the intricate structure present in the e{sup +} e{sup -} total hadronic cross section. Next we shall discuss the discovery of the D{sup 0}, and D{sup +}, and detail those properties crucial to their identification as charmed particles. Following will be a review of the properties of the D{sup 0} and D{sup +} learned through studies at the {psi}(3770) resonance, Compelling evidence will be summarized indicating that this state decays nearly exclusively into D{bar D}, thus making it particularly useful in establishing inclusive and exclusive D branching fractions. Our discussion of branching fractions will include two particularly important D decay modes, D{sup 0}{yields}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -} and D{sup 0}{yields}K{sup +}{sup -}. These processes are suppressed relative to D{sup 0}{yields}K{sup -}{pi}{sup +} in the standard charm model, and thus serve as a critical test of that theory. This will be followed by a discussion of the D semileptonic decay modes which provide useful information on the D{sup 0} and D{sup +} lifetimes. Turning our attention to the data collected beyond the {psi}(3770) we will discuss the properties and production mechanisms of the excited charm mesons, the D*{sup 0} and the D*{sup +}. D production just above the {psi}(3770) appears to be dominated by the three quasi-two-body processes e{sup +} e{sup -} {yields} D{bar D}, D*{bar D} + {bar D}*D, and D*{bar D}*, in accordance with early theoretical predictions. The relative amounts of each process, on the other hand, is somewhat surprising, and has led to considerable theoretical speculation. Finally, we will summarize evidence for the existence of the F meson which is as yet not on as solid a footing as

  1. Baryons in Holographic QCD

    CERN Document Server

    Nawa, K; Suganuma, H; Kojo, Toru; Nawa, Kanabu; Suganuma, Hideo

    2006-01-01

    We study the baryon in holographic QCD with $D4/D8/\\bar{D8}$ multi-$D$ brane system. In holographic QCD, the baryon appears as a topologically non-trivial chiral soliton in a four-dimensional effective theory of mesons. We call this topological soliton as Brane-induced Skyrmion. Some review of $D4/D8/\\bar{D8}$ holographic QCD is presented from the viewpoints of recent hadron physics and phenomenologies. Four-dimensional effective theory with pions and $\\rho$ mesons is uniquely derived from the non-abelian Dirac-Born-Infeld (DBI) action of $D8$ brane with $D4$ supergravity background, without small amplitude expansion of meson fields to discuss chiral solitons. For the hedgehog configuration of pion and $\\rho$-meson fields, we derive the energy functional and the Euler-Lagrange equation of Brane-induced Skyrmion from the meson effective action induced by holographic QCD. Performing the numerical calculation, we obtain the pion profile $F(r)$ and the $\\rho$-meson profile $G(r)$ of the Brane-induced Skyrmion, an...

  2. Baryon stopping probes deconfinement

    Science.gov (United States)

    Wolschin, Georg

    2016-08-01

    Stopping and baryon transport in central relativistic Pb + Pb and Au + Au collisions are reconsidered with the aim to find indications for the transition from hadronic to partonic processes. At energies reached at the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron ( √{s_{NN}} = 6.3-17.3 GeV) and at RHIC (62.4 GeV) the fragmentation-peak positions as obtained from the data depend linearly on the beam rapidity and are in agreement with earlier results from a QCD-based approach that accounts for gluon saturation. No discontinuities in the net-proton fragmentation peak positions occur in the expected transition region from partons to hadrons at 6-10GeV. In contrast, the mean rapidity loss is predicted to depend linearly on the beam rapidity only at high energies beyond the RHIC scale. The combination of both results offers a clue for the transition from hard partonic to soft hadronic processes in baryon stopping. NICA results could corroborate these findings.

  3. Baryons with two heavy quarks

    CERN Document Server

    Kiselev, V V

    2002-01-01

    We consider general physical characteristics of doubly heavy baryons: the spectroscopy in the framework of potential approach and sum rules of QCD, mechanisms of production in various interactions on the basis of fragmentation model with account of preasymptotic corrections caused by higher twists over the transverse momentum of baryon, inclusive decays and lifetimes in the operator product expansion over the inverse powers of heavy quark masses as well as the exclusive decays in the sum rules of QCD. We generalize the methods developed in the effective theory of heavy quarks towards the description of systems with two heavy quarks and a single light quark. The calculations are presented for the masses, decay widths and yields of baryons with two heavy quarks in the running and planned experimental facilities. We discuss the prospects of search for the baryons and possibilities of experimental observation. The most bright physical effects concerning these baryons as well as their position in the system for th...

    1996-01-01

    In a data sample of approximately four million hadronic Z decays recorded with the ALEPH detector from 1990 to 1995, a search for the strange b baryon Xi_b is performed with a study of Xi-lepton correlations. Forty-four events with same sign Xi- l- combinations are found whereas 8.4 are expected based on on the rate of opposite sign Xi- l+ combinations. This significant excess is interpreted as evidence for Xi_b semileptonic decays. The measured product branching ratio is: Br( b -> Xi_b) Br( Xi_b -> Xc X l- nu) Br( Xc -> Xi- X') = (5.4 +/- 1.1(stat) +/- 0.8(syst) ) 10**-4 per lepton species, averaged over electrons and muons, with Xc a charmed baryo\\ n. The Xi_b lifetime is measured to be : tau = 1.35 (+0.37 -0.28 (stat)) (+0.15 -0.17 (syst)) ps.

  5. B decays to open charm

    CERN Document Server

    Haines, Susan Carol

    2016-01-01

    Studies of $B$ meson decays to states involving open charm mesons in data recorded by the LHCb experiment have resulted in first observations of several new decay modes, including $B_s^{0} \\rightarrow D_s^{*\\mp} K^{\\pm}$, $B_s^{0} \\rightarrow \\overline{D}^{0} K_S^{0}$ and $B^{+} \\rightarrow D^{+} K^{+} \\pi^{-}$ decays. An upper limit has been placed on the branching fraction of $B_s^{0} \\rightarrow \\overline{D}^{0} f_0(980)$ decays. Measurements of other branching fractions, such as those of $B_s^{0} \\rightarrow D_s^{(*)+} D_s^{(*)-}$ decays, are the most precise to date. Additionally, amplitude analyses of $B^{0} \\rightarrow \\overline{D}^{0} \\pi^{+} \\pi^{-}$ and $B^{0} \\rightarrow \\overline{D}^{0} K^{+} \\pi^{-}$ decays have been performed, alongside the first $CP$ violation analysis using the Dalitz plot of $B^{0} \\rightarrow D K^{+} \\pi^{-}$ decays.

  6. Unique surgical tool as an iatromagic charm.

    2010-12-01

    Papyri are writings made on special sheets made out of reeds grown on the banks of the river Nile. The Authors comment on the relationship between a ritual text and surgical therapy with an exploration of an ancient charm as recorded in a Greek written papyrus stored in the Medicea Laurenziana Library papyri collection. This charm was presumably intended to act apotropaically, rendering harmless the aggressive surgical tool by means of still keeping its therapeutic value and thereby affording healing protection. This ritual charm acts as a "therapeutic medium" to help the surgical procedure useful to cut or to excise the uvula. The surgical power of stafillotomos is linked to the protective power of the iatromagic charm, giving the chance to analyze ancient data and to suggest a possible shape of the original scalpel.

  8. Electromagnetic properties of baryons

    Static observables of bound state systems in field theoretic descriptions are usually extracted from form factors in the limit of vanishing squared four-momentum transfer of the probing exchange particle. On the other hand, static properties in nonrelativistic quantum mechanics can be formulated by means of expectation values involving essentially scalar products of wave functions. The main objective of this work is to show that a synthesis of both approaches is indeed possible - at least if certain restrictions are made to the kind of interactions between the constituents of the bound system - leading to new insights into the structure of static properties. The focus lies especially on the charge radii and magnetic moments of baryons described within a covariant constituent quark model having its field theoretic foundations in the Bethe-Salpeter equation. The current matrix element in the Breit frame between the vertex functions is derived. The charge radius and magnetic moment of a bound three-fermion system is then derived by starting from their usual definition from form factors and in case of the charge radius also from the well-known radius of a charge distribution in classical electrodynamics. In both cases the static limit at the photon point is taken analytically and subsequently the integration over the relative energy variables is done. Finally the vertex functions are replaced by Salpeter amplitudes and the expression is symmetrized over the three fermions. The final results express the charge radius and magnetic moment of the three-fermion system as expectation values with respect to Salpeter amplitudes. The numerical implementation of the analytic results is done within a covariant constituent quark model with quark confinement and a residual instanton interaction accounting for the fine structure of the observed mass spectra. The Salpeter amplitudes which where obtained by solving the Salpeter equation are used to compute the expectation values of

    The motivation most often cited in searches for D0-anti-D0 mixing and CP-violation in charm system lies with the possibility of observing a signal from new physics which dominates that from the Standard Model. We review recent theoretical predictions and experimental constraints on D0-anti-D0 mixing parameters. We also discuss the current status of searches for CP-violation in charmed meson transitions, as well as some recent theoretical ideas.

  15. Search for Hidden-Charm Pentaquark with CLAS12

    CERN Document Server

    Kubarovsky, V

    2016-01-01

    LHCb recently announced the discovery of two exotic structures in the $J/\\psi + p$ decay channel, which have been referred to as charmonium-pentaquark states. Resolving between the models and clarifying the nature of the discovered hidden-charm pentaquark peaks, and possibly searching for similar peaks with other quantum numbers, requires further experimental studies. The states were observed in the decay mode $J/\\psi+p$. Thus, it is natural to expect that these pentaquarks can be produced in the photoproduction process $\\gamma+p\\to P_c\\to J/\\psi+p$ where these states will appear as s-channel resonances at photon energy around 10 GeV. The energy and luminosity of the CLAS12 photon beam permit the detailed studies of the production and decay properties of the pentaquark resonances. By this reason the pentaquark search at Jefferson Laboratory looks extremely attractive.

  16. Study of Baryon Spectroscopy Using a New Potential Form

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    L. I. Abou-Salem

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available In the present work, the nonrelativistic quark model is applied to study baryon systems, where the constituent quarks are bound by a suitable hyper central potential. We proposed a new phenomenological form of the interaction potential, digamma-type potential. Using the Jacobi coordinates, the three-body wave equation is solved numerically to calculate the resonance states of the N, Δ, Λ, and Σ baryon systems. The present model contains only two adjustable parameters in addition to the quark masses. Our theoretical calculations are compared to the available experimental data and Cornell potential results. The description of the spectrum shows that the ground states of the considered light and strange baryon spectra are in general well reproduced.

The significance of the signal corresponds to 7.7{sigma} and the {Xi}{sub b}{sup -} mass is measured to be 5792.9{+-}2.5(stat.){+-}1.7(syst.) MeV/c{sup 2}. In addition we observe four resonances in the {Lambda}{sub b}{sup 0}{pi}{sup {+-}} spectra, consistent with the bottom baryons {Sigma}{sub b}{sup (*){+-}}. All observations are in agreement with theoretical expectations.

  18. Quark-model interactions for complete baryon octet

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Baryon-baryon interactions for the complete baryon octet (B8) are investigated in a unified framework of the resonating-group method, in which the spin-flavor SU6 quark-model wave functions are employed. Model parameters are determined to reproduce properties of the nucleon-nucleon system and the low-energy cross section data for the hyperon-nucleon interaction. We then proceed to explore B8B8 interactions in the strangeness S=-2, -3 and -4 sectors. The S-wave phase-shift behavior and total cross sections are systematically understood by 1) the spin-flavor SU6 symmetry, 2) the special role of the pion exchange and 3) the flavor symmetry breaking.

    We examine the decays of nonstrange baryons to the final states $\\Delta\\pi$, $N\\rho$, $N\\eta$, $N\\eta^\\prime$, $N\\omega$, $N1/2^+(1440)\\pi$, and $\\Delta3/2^+(1600)\\pi$, in a relativized pair-creation($^3P_0$) model which has been developed in a previous study of the $N\\pi$ decays of the same baryon states. As it is our goal to provide a guide for the possible discovery of new baryon states at CEBAF and elsewhere, we examine the decays of resonances which have already been seen in the partial-wave analyses, along with those of states which are predicted by the quark model but which remain undiscovered. The level of agreement between our calculation and the available widths from the partial-wave analyses is encouraging.

  1. Baryon Spectroscopy - Recent Results from the CBELSA/TAPS Experiment

    CERN Document Server

    Hartmann, Jan

    2016-01-01

    One of the remaining challenges within the standard model is to gain a good understanding of QCD in the non-perturbative regime. One key step toward this aim is baryon spectroscopy, investigating the spectrum and the properties of baryon resonances. To get access to resonances with small $\\pi N$ partial width, photoproduction experiments provide essential information. In order to extract the contributing resonances, partial wave analyses need to be performed. Here, a complete experiment is required to unambiguously determine the contributing amplitudes. This involves the measurement of carefully chosen single and double polarization observables. The CBELSA/TAPS experiment with a longitudinally or transversely polarized target and an energy tagged, linearly or circularly polarized photon beam allows the measurement of a large set of polarization observables. Due to its good energy resolution, high detection efficiency for photons, and the nearly complete solid angle coverage it is ideally suited for the measur...

  2. Decay and spectra of baryons especially beauty baryons

    Science.gov (United States)

    Kalman, C. S.

    1996-06-01

    Masses and decays of the baryons are considered. The entire spectroscopy of baryons containing u,d,s,c and b quarks is calculated using the five quark masses and only four additional parameters describing the potential between the baryons. This potential is taken to be a short-range Coulomb potential together with a long-range linear potential modified by a harmonic-oscillator potential. Decays are studied using the quark pair creation model of Le Yaouanc et. al. The pair strength γ is replaced by kγ . This and the meson radius are the only parameters used in the calculation of the decays. Overall, we have a useful model, employing a small number of parameters, yet capable of yielding a description of the baryons in good accord with experimental data.

  3. Decays of J/psi (3100) to baryon final states

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We present results for the decays of psi(3100) into baryon and hyperon final states. The sample studied here consists of 1.3 million produced psi decays. The decays into nonstrange baryons agree well with currently established results, but with better statistics. In addition, significant resonance formation in multibody final states is observed. The decay psi → anti ppγ, the first direct photon decay of the psi involving baryons in the final state, is presented and the theoretical implications of the decays are briefly explored. Several new decays of the psi involving strange baryons are explored, including the first observations of three body final states involving hyperons. The I-spin symmetry of the strong decay psi → baryons has clearly been observed. The reduced matrix elements for psi → B anti B are presented for final states of different SU(3) content. The B8 anti B8 results are in excellent agreement with the psi being an SU(3) singlet as are the results for psi → B10 anti B10. We present the first evidence for the SU(3) violating decays of the type psi → B8 anti B10 + c.c.. Angular distributions for psi → B8 anti B8 are presented and compared with theoretical predictions. Statistics are limited, but the data tends to prefer other than a 1 + Cos2theta distribution

  4. Baryon mapping of quark systems

    CERN Document Server

    Sambataro, M

    1995-01-01

    We discuss a mapping procedure from a space of colorless three-quark clusters into a space of elementary baryons and illustrate it in the context of a three-color extension of the Lipkin model recently developed. Special attention is addressed to the problem of the formation of unphysical states in the mapped space. A correspondence is established between quark and baryon spaces and the baryon image of a generic quark operator is defined both in its Hermitian and non-Hermitian forms. Its spectrum (identical in the two cases) is found to consist of a physical part containing the same eigenvalues of the quark operator in the cluster space and an unphysical part consisting only of zero eigenvalues. A physical subspace of the baryon space is also defined where the latter eigenvalues are suppressed. The procedure discussed is quite general and applications of it can be thought also in the correspondence between systems of 2n fermions and n bosons.

    We calculate the mass spectra of the singly charmed baryons ($\\Lambda_{c}^{+}$, $\\Sigma_{c}^{0}$, $\\Xi_{c}^{0}$ and $\\Omega_{c}^{0}$) using Hypercentral constituent quark model(hCQM). The hyper color coloumb plus linear potential is used to calculate the masses of positive(upto $J^{p}=\\frac{7}{2}^{+}$) and negative parity(upto $J^{p}=\\frac{9}{2}^{-}$) excited states. The spin-spin, spin-orbital and tensor interaction terms are also incorporated for mass spectra. We have compared our results with other theoretical predictions and Lattice QCD for each baryons. Moreover, the known experimental results are also reasonably closed to our predicted masses. By using the radial and orbital excitation, we construct Regge trajectories for the baryons in (n,$M^{2}$) plane and find their slopes and intercepts. The other properties like, magnetic moments, radiative transitions and radiative decay widths of these baryons are also calculated successfully.

  7. Baryon wave function in large-Nc QCD: universality, nonlinear evolution equation and asymptotic limit

    CERN Document Server

    Pobylitsa, P V

    2004-01-01

    The 1/Nc expansion is formulated for the baryon wave function in terms of a specially constructed generating functional. The leading order of this 1/Nc expansion is universal for all low lying baryons [including the O(1/Nc)and O(1)excited resonances] and for baryon-meson scattering states. A nonlinear evolution equation of Hamilton-Jacobi type is derived for the generating functional describing the baryon distribution amplitude in the large-Nc limit. In the asymptotic regime this nonlinear equation is solved analytically. The anomalous dimensions of the leading twist baryon operators diagonalizing the evolution are computed analytically up to the next-to-leading order of the 1/Nc expansion.

    In this article we have provided certain details of a nuclear-matter computation, based on the Brueckner-Bethe-Goldstone theory of nuclear reaction, which leads to an equation of state for matter in the density region of 10 to 500 trillion g/cu cm. We also explore the possibilities that at very high baryon densities or for very short baryon separations, the net baryon-baryon interaction may be negligible so that the results of dynamical models, like the statistical bootstrap model and the dual-resonance model, may be applicable to the study of dense baryon matter. Several plausible equations of state are constructed, and their effect on the limiting mass of the neutron star is examined.

We investigate a collective model in which the nucleon is regarded as a rotating and vibrating oblate top with a prescribed distribution of charges and magnetization.

    2016-01-01

    In this contribution we discuss recent results in light quark baryon spectroscopy involving CLAS data and higher level analysis results from the partial wave analysis by the Bonn-Gatchina group. New baryon states were discovered largely based on the open strangeness production channels $\\gamma p \\to K^+ \\Lambda$ and $\\gamma p \\to K^+ \\Sigma^0$. The data illustrate the great potential of the kaon-hyperon channel in the discovery of higher mass baryon resonances in s-channel production. Other channels with discovery potential, such as $\\gamma p \\to p \\omega$ and $\\gamma p \\to \\phi p$ are also discussed. In the second part I will demonstrate on data the sensitivity of meson electroproduction to expose the active degrees of freedom underlying resonance transitions as a function of the probed distance scale. For several of the prominent excited states in the lower mass range the short distance behavior is described by a core of three dressed-quarks with running quark mass, and meson-baryon contributions make up si...

    Results on vector meson, and strange and charmed-baryon production are presented for data taken during the period 1982--1986 using the TPC/2γ detector at PEP. Vector mesons (ρ0, K* and φ) with 0, 1 and 2 strange quarks are used to obtain redundant measures of strange-quark suppression and of the vector to pseudoscalar ratio in hadronization. Measurements of the production rates of Λ, Ξ-, Ω and Ξ*0 hyperons and for the Λc and of rapidity correlations between Λ bar Λ pairs provide sensitive tests of baryon production in fragmentation models. In addition, two- and three-particle correlations between like sign pions provide further evidence for the Bose-Einstein effect in e+e- interactions including the relativistic motion of particle sources. 9 refs., 7 figs

    We present searches for rare or forbidden charm decays of the form X{sub c}{sup +} {yields} h{sup {+-}}{ell}{sup {-+}}{ell}{sup ({prime})+}, where X{sub c}{sup +} is a charm hardron (D{sup +}, D{sub s}{sup +}, or {Lambda}{sub c}{sup +}), h{sup {+-}} is a pion, kaon, or proton, and {ell}{sup ({prime}){+-}} is an electron or muon. The analysis is based on 384 fb{sup -1} of e{sup +}e{sup -} annihilation data collected at or close to the {Upsilon}(4S) resonance with the BABAR detector at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. No significant signal is observed for any of the 35 decay modes that are investigated. We establish 90% confidence-level upper limits on the branching fractions between 1 x 10{sup -6} and 44 x 10{sup -6} depending on the channel. In most cases, these results represent either the first limits or significant improvements on existing limits for the decay modes studied.

  19. Many-Body Coulomb Gauge Exotic and Charmed Hybrids

    CERN Document Server

    Llanes-Estrada, F J; Llanes-Estrada, Felipe J.; Cotanch, Stephen R.

    2001-01-01

    Utilizing a QCD Coulomb gauge Hamiltonian with linear confinement specified by lattice, we report a relativistic many-body calculation for the light exotic and charmed hybrid mesons. The Hamiltonian successfully describes both quark and gluon sectors, with vacuum and quasiparticle properties generated by a BCS transformation and more elaborate TDA and RPA diagonalizations for the meson ($q\\bar{q}$) and glueball ($gg$) masses. Hybrids entail a computationally intense relativistic three quasiparticle ($q\\bar{q}g$) calculation with the 9 dimensional Hamiltonian matrix elements evaluated variationally by Monte Carlo techniques. Our new TDA spectrum for the nonexotic $1^{--}$ charmed ($c\\bar{c}$ and $c\\bar{c}g$) system provides an explanation for the overpopulation of the observed $J/\\psi$ states. For the important $1^{-+}$ light exotic channel we obtain hybrid masses above 2 $GeV$, in broad agreement with lattice and flux tube models, indicating that the recently observed resonances at 1.4 and 1.6 $GeV$ are of di...

    Charmed tetraquarks $T_{cc}=(cc\\bar{u}\\bar{d})$ and $T_{cs}=(cs\\bar{u}\\bar{d})$ are studied through the S-wave meson-meson interactions, $D$-$D$, $\\bar{K}$-$D$, $D$-$D^{*}$ and $\\bar{K}$-$D^{*}$, on the basis of the (2+1)-flavor lattice QCD simulations with the pion mass $m_{\\pi} \\simeq $410, 570 and 700 MeV. For the charm quark, the relativistic heavy quark action is employed to treat its dynamics on the lattice. Using the HAL QCD method, we extract the S-wave potentials in lattice QCD simulations, from which the meson-meson scattering phase shifts are calculated. The phase shifts in the isospin triplet ($I$=1) channels indicate repulsive interactions, while those in the $I=0$ channels suggest attraction, growing as $m_{\\pi}$ decreases. This is particularly prominent in the $T_{cc} (J^P=1^+,I=0)$ channel, though neither bound state nor resonance are found in the range $m_{\\pi} =410-700$ MeV. We make a qualitative comparison of our results with the phenomenological diquark picture.

Using the HAL QCD method, we extract the S-wave potentials in lattice QCD simulations, from which the meson-meson scattering phase shifts are calculated. The phase shifts in the isospin triplet (I=1) channels indicate repulsive interactions, while those in the I=0 channels suggest attraction, growing as mπ decreases. This is particularly prominent in the Tcc (JP=1+,I=0) channel, though neither bound state nor resonance are found in the range mπ=410-700 MeV. We make a qualitative comparison of our results with the phenomenological diquark picture.

  2. Baryons and baryonic matter in four-fermion interaction models

    Urlichs, K.

    2007-02-23

    In this work we discuss baryons and baryonic matter in simple four-fermion interaction theories, the Gross-Neveu model and the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model in 1+1 and 2+1 space-time dimensions. These models are designed as toy models for dynamical symmetry breaking in strong interaction physics. Pointlike interactions (''four-fermion'' interactions) between quarks replace the full gluon mediated interaction of quantum chromodynamics. We consider the limit of a large number of fermion flavors, where a mean field approach becomes exact. This method is formulated in the language of relativistic many particle theory and is equivalent to the Hartree-Fock approximation. In 1+1 dimensions, we generalize known results on the ground state to the case where chiral symmetry is broken explicitly by a bare mass term. For the Gross-Neveu model, we derive an exact self-consistent solution for the finite density ground state, consisting of a one-dimensional array of equally spaced potential wells, a baryon crystal. For the Nambu- Jona-Lasinio model we apply the derivative expansion technique to calculate the total energy in powers of derivatives of the mean field. In a picture akin to the Skyrme model of nuclear physics, the baryon emerges as a topological soliton. The solution for both the single baryon and dense baryonic matter is given in a systematic expansion in powers of the pion mass. The solution of the Hartree-Fock problem is more complicated in 2+1 dimensions. In the massless Gross-Neveu model we derive an exact self-consistent solution by extending the baryon crystal of the 1+1 dimensional model, maintaining translational invariance in one spatial direction. This one-dimensional configuration is energetically degenerate to the translationally invariant solution, a hint in favor of a possible translational symmetry breakdown by more general geometrical structures. In the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model, topological soliton configurations induce a finite baryon

    Bottom-meson decays with baryons show two unusual features—the branching fractions are enhanced for multibody decays and the baryon-antibaryon subsystem recoils against the other decay products—and their reasons are not yet well understood. Moreover, measurements using explicit reconstruction techniques constitute only about 1% out of about 8% of such decays. This Dissertation reports the study of ten bottom-meson decays (labeled 0– 9) to a proton-antiproton pair, a charm meson, and a system of up to two pions, using the BABAR Experiment’s 455×106 BB pairs produced with the PEP-II asymmetric-energy e+e- collider at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center.

    We measure the baryons contained in both the stellar and hot-gas components for 12 galaxy clusters and groups at z ∼ 0.1 with M = 1-5 × 10{sup 14} M {sub ☉}. This paper improves upon our previous work through the addition of XMM-Newton X-ray data, enabling measurements of the total mass and masses of each major baryonic component—intracluster medium, intracluster stars, and stars in galaxies—for each system. We recover a mean relation for the stellar mass versus halo mass, M{sub ⋆}∝M{sub 500}{sup −0.52±0.04}, that is 1σ shallower than in our previous result. We confirm that the partitioning of baryons between the stellar and hot-gas components is a strong function of M {sub 500}; the fractions of total mass in stars and X-ray gas within a sphere of radius r {sub 500} scale as f{sub ⋆}∝M{sub 500}{sup −0.45±0.04} and f{sub gas}∝M{sub 500}{sup 0.26±0.03}, respectively. We also confirm that the combination of the brightest cluster galaxy and intracluster stars is an increasingly important contributor to the stellar baryon budget in lower halo masses. Studies that fail to fully account for intracluster stars typically underestimate the normalization of the stellar baryon fraction versus M {sub 500} relation by ∼25%. Our derived stellar baryon fractions are also higher, and the trend with halo mass weaker, than those derived from recent halo occupation distribution and abundance matching analyses. One difference from our previous work is the weak, but statistically significant, dependence here of the total baryon fraction upon halo mass: f{sub bary}∝M{sub 500}{sup 0.16±0.04}. For M {sub 500} ≳ 2 × 10{sup 14}, the total baryon fractions within r {sub 500} are on average 18% below the universal value from the seven year Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) analysis, or 7% below for the cosmological parameters from the Planck analysis. In the latter case, the difference between the universal value and cluster baryon fractions is

    2008-07-15

    One of the interesting questions of Quantum Chromodynamics, the theory that governs the interactions between quarks and gluons, has been whether it is possible to observe hadrons which can not be explained as a combination of only two or three valence quarks. In numerous searches the existence of these exotic hadrons could not be confirmed. Recently, calculations based on the quark soliton model predicted the narrow exotic baryons {theta}{sup +} and {xi}{sup --}. A narrow resonance identified as the {theta}{sup +} was observed by several experiments at the predicted mass of 1540 MeV, but later followed by several dedicated experiments that could not confirm these positive results. At the HERMES experiment a search for the quasi-real photoproduction of the exotic baryon {theta}{sup +} on a deuterium target and the subsequent decay through pK{sup 0}{sub S} {yields} p{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -} revealed a narrow resonance in the pK{sup 0}{sub S} invariant mass distribution at 1528 MeV. In the search for the corresponding antiparticle {xi}{sup --} the result is consistent with zero events. In this thesis we present the search for the exotic baryon {xi}{sup --} on a deuterium target in the data sample used for the observation of the {theta}{sup +}. An upper limit on the cross section of the exotic baryon {xi}{sup --} is determined. The search for the exotic baryon {theta}{sup +} on hydrogen and deuterium targets at the HERMES experiment is extensively discussed. The event mixing method can be used to estimate the distribution of background events. Several difficulties with this method were addressed, but the background description in the case of the exotic baryon {theta}{sup +} remains unconvincing. Between the years 2002 and 2005 the HERMES experiment operated with a magnetic holding field around the hydrogen target. A method for the reconstruction of displaced vertices in this field was developed. The data collected during the years 2006 and 2007 offer an integrated

In numerous searches the existence of these exotic hadrons could not be confirmed. Recently, calculations based on the quark soliton model predicted the narrow exotic baryons Θ+ and Ξ--. A narrow resonance identified as the Θ+ was observed by several experiments at the predicted mass of 1540 MeV, but later followed by several dedicated experiments that could not confirm these positive results. At the HERMES experiment a search for the quasi-real photoproduction of the exotic baryon Θ+ on a deuterium target and the subsequent decay through pK0S → pπ+π- revealed a narrow resonance in the pK0S invariant mass distribution at 1528 MeV. In the search for the corresponding antiparticle Ξ-- the result is consistent with zero events. In this thesis we present the search for the exotic baryon Ξ-- on a deuterium target in the data sample used for the observation of the Θ+.

    We review selected highlights on charm and beauty production at RHIC from p+p, d+Au and A+A collisions at {radical}(s{sub NN})=200GeV, and compare them to model calculations. We focus on two particular issues, jet quenching and quarkonia. Anomalous energy loss (jet quenching) of quarks passing through the dense and hot matter built in heavy ion collisions is one of the outstanding discoveries made at RHIC. This phenomenon allows for an estimate of the initial gluon density. Furthermore, color screening of hidden charm and beauty states is a key signature of the QCD phase transition, allowing an estimate of the initial temperature. We present results on the flavour dependence of jet quenching. Heavy flavour production in A+A as compared to p+p collisions will be discussed for open and hidden charm.

    Full Text Available We discuss charm production at the LHC. The production of single cc¯$car c$ pairs is calculated in the kt-factorization approach. We use Kimber-Martin-Ryskin unintegrated gluon distributions in the proton. The hadronization is included with the help of Peterson fragmentation functions. Transverse momentum and pseudorapidity distributions of charmed mesons are presented and compared to recent results of the ALICE, LHCb and ATLAS collaborations. Furthermore we discuss production of two pairs of cc¯ $car c$ within a simple formalism of double-parton scattering (DPS. Surprisingly large cross sections, comparable to single-parton scattering (SPS, are predicted for LHC energies. We discuss perspectives how to identify the double scattering contribution. We predict much larger cross section for large rapidity distance between charm quarks from different hard parton scatterings compared to single scattering.

  9. Charm photoproduction at 20 GeV

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Sixty-two events have been observed in an exposure of the SLAC Hybrid Facility to a backward scattered laser beam. Based on 22 neutral and 21 charged decays the charmed meson lifetimes have been measured to be tausub(D)o = (6.8sub(-1.8)sup(+2.3)) x 10-13s, tausub(D)+- = (7.4sub(-2.0)sup(+2.3)) x 10-13s and their ratio tausub(D)+-/tausub(D)o = 1.1sub(-0.3)sup(+0.6). The inclusive charm cross section at a photon energy of 20 GeV has been measured to be (56sub(-23)sup(+24) nb). Evidence is presented for a non D D component to charm production, consistent with 35 +- 20% Λ+sub(c) production and some D*+- production. No unambiguous F decays have been found. (author)

  10. Hadroproduction characteristics of charm and beauty

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In this article the authors review the present status of their knowledge on the hadroproduction characteristics of charm and beauty. During a brief description of the properties of all charm and beauty particles reportedly observed in hadron-hadron experiments they discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the various experimental techniques. In particular they emphasise the quantitative problems associated with nuclear target experiments and show the progress that is being made in understanding the A-dependence problem. Focussing on charm cross sections the authors see that the data are becoming sufficiently good to give us a reliable and coherent picture which provides a serious test of the QCD fusion model. This same fusion model is then used with existing beauty cross section determinations to make some extrapolations. Finally, a few remaining puzzles and curiosities are underlined

    2015-11-20

    We propose a new method for determining the coupling of the Higgs boson to charm quarks, via Higgs production in association with a charm-tagged jet: pp→hc. As a first estimate, we find that at the LHC with 3000 fb^{-1}, it should be possible to derive a constraint of order one, relative to the standard model (SM) value of the charm Yukawa coupling. As a by-product of this analysis, we present an estimate of the exclusive pp→hD^{(*)} electroweak cross section. Within the SM, the latter turns out to be not accessible at the LHC even in the high-luminosity phase. PMID:26636844

    The photoproduction of beauty and charm quarks at the ep collider HERA are presented. The b-quarks production was investigated in the bb → eeX' channel and the differential production cross section was measured as a function of the average transverse momentum of the beauty quarks down to the threshold. The cross section of D* meson decaying in the golden channel was determined both inclusively and in D*-tagged dijet events. Exploiting the characteristics of the heavy-flavoured hadron decays, beauty and charm quark cross sections were also measured in dijet events using secondary vertices or semi-muonic decays.

  15. CP violation in charm decays at CDF

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Exploiting the full Run II data sample collected by the CDF trigger on displaced vertices, we present a search for CP violation in neutral D mesons decays to hadronic final states. We use the strong D∗+ → D0π+ (and c.c.) decay to identify the flavor of the charmed meson at production time and exploit CP conserving strong c¯c pair-production in p¯p collisions. The results are the world’s most precise measurements to date and confirm the presence of sizable CP-violating effects in the charm sector as recently observed by the LHCb collaboration.

  16. Baryon Transition in Holographic QCD

    CERN Document Server

    Li, Siwen

    2015-01-01

    We propose a mechanism of holographic baryon transition in the Sakai-Sugimoto (SS) model: baryons in this model can jump to different states under the mediated effect of gravitons (or glueballs by holography). We consider a time-dependent gravitational perturbation from M5-brane solution of D=11 supergravity and by employing the relations between 11D M-theory and IIA string theory, we get its 10 dimensional counterpart in the SS model. Such a perturbation is received by the D4-branes wrapped on the $S^{4}$ part of the 10D background, namely the baryon vertex. Technically, baryons in the SS model are described by BPST instanton ansatz and their dynamics can be analyzed using the quantum mechanical system in the instanton's moduli space. In this way, different baryonic states are marked by quantum numbers of moduli space quantum mechanics. By holographic spirit, the gravitational perturbation enters the Hamiltonian as a time-dependent perturbation and it is this time-dependent perturbative Hamiltonian produces ...

  17. Quark confinement mechanism for baryons

    Goncharov, Yu P

    2013-01-01

    The confinement mechanism proposed earlier and then successfully applied to meson spectroscopy by the author is extended over baryons. For this aim the wave functions of baryons are built as tensorial products of those corresponding to the 2-body problem underlying the confinement mechanism of two quarks. This allows one to obtain the Hamiltonian of the quark interactions in a baryon and, accordingly, the possible energy spectrum of the latter. Also one may construct the electric and magnetic form factors of baryon in a natural way which entails the expressions for the root-mean-square radius and anomalous magnetic moment. To ullustrate the formalism in the given Chapter for the sake of simplicity only symmetrical baryons (i.e., composed from three quarks of the same flavours) $\\Delta^{++}$, $\\Delta^{-}$, $\\Omega^-$ are considered. For them the masses, the root-mean-square radii and anomalous magnetic moments are expressed in an explicit analytical form through the parameters of the confining SU(3)-gluonic fi...

    We study the three-body $\\Lambda_b$ decays of $\\Lambda_b\\to J/\\psi pM$ with $M=K^-$ and $\\pi^-$. The two new states ${\\cal P}_{c1}\\equiv {\\cal P}_c(4380)^+$ and ${\\cal P}_{c2}\\equiv {\\cal P}_c(4450)^+$ observed recently as the resonances in the $J/\\psi p$ invariant mass spectrum of $\\Lambda_b\\to J/\\psi p K^-$ can be identified to consist of five quarks, $uudc\\bar c$, being consistent with the existence of the pentaquark states. We argue that, in the doubly charmful $\\Lambda_b$ decays of $\\Lambda_b\\to J/\\psi pK^-$ through $b\\to c\\bar c s$, apart from those through the non-resonant $\\Lambda_b\\to pK^-$ and resonant $\\Lambda_b\\to \\Lambda^*\\to pK^-$ transitions, the third contribution with the non-factorizable effects is not the dominant part for the resonant $\\Lambda_b\\to K^-{\\cal P}_{c1,c2}, {\\cal P}_{c1,c2}\\to J/\\psi p$ processes, such that we propose that the ${\\cal P}_{c1,c2}$ productions are mainly from the charmless $\\Lambda_b$ decays through $b\\to \\bar u u s$, in which the $c\\bar c$ content in ${\\cal P}_{c...

In order to determine the $14$ low-energy constants, we perform a simultaneous fit of the $n_f=2+1$ lattice QCD data from the PACS-CS, QCDSF-UKQCD, and HSC Collaborations, taking finite-volume corrections into account self-consistently.

By solving the kinetic equations for charm quark and charmonium distributions in Pb+Pb collisions, we calculate the global and differential nuclear modification factors RAA (Npart) and RAA (pt) for J / ψ s. Due to the thermal charm production in hot medium, the charmonium production source changes from the initially created charm quarks at SPS, RHIC and LHC to the thermally produced charm quarks at Future Circular Collider (FCC), and the J / ψ suppression (RAA 1) at FCC at low transverse momentum.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The angular dependence of the tensor Ayy and vector Ay analyzing powers in the inelastic scattering of deuterons with a momentum of 9.0 GeV/c on hydrogen and carbon has been measured. The range of measurements corresponds to the baryonic resonance excitation with masses of ∼2.2-2.6 GeV/c2. The Ayy data, being in good agreement with the previous results, demonstrate an approximate t scaling up to -1.5 (GeV/c)2. The large values of Ay show a significant role of the spin-dependent part of the elementary amplitude of the NN → NN* reaction. The results of the experiment are compared with model predictions of the plane-wave impulse approximation

    CERN Document Server

    Kalashnikova, Yu S

    1996-01-01

    The QCD-motivated constituent string model is extended to consider the baryon. The system of three quarks propagating in the confining background field is studied in the Wilson loop approach, and the effective action is obtained. The resulting Lagrangian at large interquark distances corresponds to the Mercedes Benz string configuration. Assuming the quarks to be heavy enough to allow the adiabatic separation of quark and string junction motion and using the hyperspherical expansion for the quark subsystem we write out and solve the classical equation of motion for the junction. We quantize the motion of the junction and demonstrate that the account of these modes leads to the effective "swelling" of the baryon in comparison with the standard potential picture. We discuss the effects of the finite gluonic correlation length which do not affect the excited states but appear to be substantial for the baryonic ground state, reducing the "swelling" considerably and leaving room to the short range Coulomb force in...

    2016-01-01

    A density-dependent effective potential for the baryon-baryon interaction in the presence of the (hyper)nuclear medium is constructed, based on the leading (irreducible) three-baryon forces derived within SU(3) chiral effective field theory. We evaluate the contributions from three classes: contact terms, one-pion exchange and two-pion exchange. In the strangeness-zero sector we recover the known result for the in-medium nucleon-nucleon interaction. Explicit expressions for the Lambda-nucleon in-medium potential in (asymmetric) nuclear matter are presented. Our results are suitable for implementation into calculations of (hyper)nuclear matter. In order to estimate the low-energy constants of the leading three-baryon forces we introduce the decuplet baryons as explicit degrees of freedom and construct the relevant terms in the minimal non-relativistic Lagrangian. With these, the constants are estimated through decuplet saturation. Utilizing this approximation we provide numerical results for the effect of the ...

    We find explicit probe D3-brane solutions in the infrared of the Maldacena-Nunez background. The solutions describe deformed baryon vertices: q external quarks are separated in spacetime from the remaining N-q. As the separation is taken to infinity we recover known solutions describing infinite confining strings in ${\\mathcal{N}}=1$ gauge theory. We present results for the mass of finite confining strings as a function of length. We also find probe D2-brane solutions in a confining type IIA geometry, the reduction of a G_2 holonomy M theory background. The interpretation of these solutions as deformed baryons/confining strings is not as straightforward.

In particular, the behavior of the mass and residue of the $\\Delta$, $\\Sigma^{*}$, $\\Xi^{*}$ and $\\Omega$ baryons with respect to temperature are analyzed taking into account the additional operators coming up in the Wilson expansion at finite temperature. It is found that the mass and residue of these particles remain overall unaffected up to $T\\simeq150~MeV$ but, after this point, they start to diminish, considerably.

The idea that the scale symmetry breaking of QCD is responsible for the spontaneous breaking of chiral symmetry is presented along the similar spirit of Freund-Nambu model. The incorporation of dilaton field in the hidden local symmetric parity doublet model is briefly sketched with the possible role of dilaton at high density baryonic matter, the emergence of linear sigma model in dilaton limit.

    A review is provided of open charm and beauty production at HERA and its description by perturbative QCD (pQCD). Four years after the end of the data taking there is still a steady flow of new charm and beauty results from HERA. Among the results reported here are the first combined H1 and ZEUS measurements on the contribution from charm production to deep inelastic scattering (DIS), represented by the structure function F{sub 2}{sup cc{sup {sup M{sup a{sup c{sup r{sup o{sup n{sup }}}}}}}}}, as well as new precise results on the corresponding structure function for beauty production, F{sub 2}{sup bb{sup {sup M{sup a{sup c{sup r{sup o{sup n{sup }}}}}}}}}. Furthermore the situation of charm and beauty production in the photoproduction kinematic regime is reviewed. Since it is a related field also the first hadroproduction results from LHC are presented. A brief outlook is given on open heavy flavour prospects at possible future ep colliders, with a focus on the LHeC.

    We report the preliminary measurement by the FOCUS Collaboration (E831 at Fermilab) of masses and widths of the L=1 charm mesons $D_2^{*0}$ and $D_2^{*+}$. The fit of the invariant mass distribution requires an additional term to account for a broad structure over background.

  14. Neutrinos from charm production in the atmosphere

    Atmospheric neutrinos are produced in interactions of cosmic rays with Earth's atmosphere. At very high energy, the contribution from semi-leptonic decays of charmed hadrons, known as the prompt neutrino flux, dominates over the conventional flux from pion and kaon decays. This is due to the very short lifetime of the charmed hadrons, which therefore do not lose energy before they decay. The calculation of this process is difficult because the Bjorken-x at which the parton distribution functions are evaluated is very small. This is a region where QCD is not well understood, and large logarithms must be resummed. Available parton distribution functions are not known at such small x and extrapolations must be made. Theoretically, the fast rise of the structure functions for small x ultimately leads to parton saturation. This contribution describes the 'ERS' [1] calculation of the prompt neutrino flux, which includes parton saturation effects in the QCD production cross section of charm quarks. The ERS flux calculation is used by e.g. the IceCube collaboration as a standard benchmark background. We are now updating this calculation to take into account the recent LHC data on the charm cross section, as well as recent theoretical developments in QCD. Some of the issues involved in this calculation are described.

They are at least one order of magnitude larger than a simple scaling of the branching fraction of J/ψ/ψ(3686→BB¯.

  18. Quark-model baryon-baryon interaction and its applications to hypernuclei

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The quark-model baryon-baryon interaction fss2, proposed by the Kyoto-Niigata group, is a unified model for the complete baryon octet (B8=N, Λ, Σ and Ξ), which is formulated in a framework of the (3q)-(3q) resonating-group method (RGM) using the spin-flavor SU6 quark-model was functions and effective meson-exchange potentials at the quark level. Model parameters are determined to reproduce properties of the nucleon-nucleon system and the low-energy cross section data for the hyperon-nucleon scattering. Due to the several improvements including the introduction of vector-meson exchange potentials, fss2 has achieved very accurate description of the NN and YN interactions, comparable to various one-boson exchange potentials. We review the essential features of fss2 and our previous model FSS, and their predictions to few-body systems in confrontation with the available experimental data. Some characteristic features of the B8B8 interactions with the higher strangeness, S = -2, -3, -4, predicted by fss2 are discussed. These quark-model interactions are now applied to realistic calculations of few-body systems in a new three-cluster Faddeev formalism which uses two-cluster RGM kernels. As for the few-body systems, we discuss the three-nucleon bound states, the ΛNN-ΣNN system for the hypertriton, the ααΛ system for Λ9Be, and the ΛΛα system for ΛΛ6He. (author)

To relate the baryon octets, a model based on the SU(3) flavor symmetry is used and the SU(3) breaking effects are also considered. Assuming the electric and magnetic form factors are equal (|GE | = |GM |), a global fit including the interference between the QED process and the resonant process is performed.

They are at least one order of magnitude larger than a simple scaling of the branching fraction of J / ψ / ψ (3686) → B B bar .

    In this review, we discuss some interesting issues in charm physics, which is full of puzzles and chal- lenges. So far in this field, there exist many problems which have not obtained satisfactory answers yet as more unexpected phenomena Continue to be observed at the current facilities of high energy physics. Charm physics may become an ideal place for searching new resonances and studying non-perturbative QCD effects, moreover it is probably an area for exploring new physics beyond the Standard Model. More data will be available at the BE- SIII, B-factories, LHC and even the future ILC, which may open a wide window to a better understanding of its nature.

    2016-01-01

    Beauty baryons are being observed in large number in the LHCb detector. The rich kinematics of their multibody decays are therefore becoming accessible and provide us with new opportunities to search for CP violation. We analyse the angular distributions of some three- and four-body decays of spin-$1/2$ baryons using the Jacob-Wick helicity formalism. The asymmetries that provide access to small differences of CP-odd phases between decay amplitudes of identical CP-even phases are notably discussed. The understanding gained on processes featuring specific resonant intermediate states allows us to establish which asymmetries are relevant for what purpose. It is for instance shown that some CP-odd angular asymmetries measured by the LHCb collaboration in the $\\Lambda_b \\to \\Lambda\\,\\varphi \\to p\\,\\pi\\, K^+ K^-$ decay are expected to vanish identically.

    2016-01-01

    We have constructed an equation of state which smoothly interpolates between an excluded volume hadron resonance gas at low energy density to a plasma of quarks and gluons at high energy density. This crossover equation of state agrees very well with lattice calculations at both zero and nonzero baryon chemical potential. We use it to compute the variance, skewness, and kurtosis of fluctuations of baryon number, and compare to measurements of proton number fluctuations in central Au-Au collisions as measured by the STAR collaboration in a beam energy scan at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider. The crossover equation of state can reproduce the data if the fluctuations are frozen out at temperatures well below than the average chemical freeze-out.

    We report an observation of new bottom baryons produced in pp collisions at the Tevatron. Using 1.1 fb(-1) of data collected by the CDF II detector, we observe four Lambda b 0 pi+/- resonances in the fully reconstructed decay mode Lambda b 0-->Lambda c + pi-, where Lambda c+-->pK* pi+. We interpret these states as the Sigma b(*)+/- baryons and measure the following masses: m Sigma b+=5807.8 -2.2 +2.0(stat.)+/-1.7(syst.) MeV/c2, m Sigma b- =5815.2+/-1.0(stat.)+/-1.7(syst.)

  7. Corroboration of the new nuclear force in baryon-baryon scattering

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A new nuclear theory based on exponentially decreasing inverse-square-law static nuclear force is considered. It uses theoretical constants, corresponding vector potential and the Dirac-Pauli equation with resulting equivalent Schroedinger potential. More than hundred comparisons with the experiment have been made, 9/10 of them in the area of baryon-baryon scattering. A complete coincidence with the experiment for np-scattering in non-resonance area from 3 MeV to the relativistic limit 50 MeV is obtained. In agreement with the experiment the total cross-sections for nn, pp, λp and σ+p scattering coincide in the range of the graphic curve width. Some shortcomings of the quantum theory of scattering under 20 MeV are pointed out. They require measurements with polarized beams or special calculations taking into account decreasing of the effective scattering cross-section after the spin orientation. Preliminary estimations show that in the range of 1-45 MeV the spin turns at nucleon interaction of 1.3-0.6 fm. For lower energies the inversion take place at larger distances between nucleons. It is concluded that the theory copes successfully with the experiment in the range of applicability of the quantum mechanical methods. (author). 3 figs, 19 refs

    Thermalization is one of the key questions in understanding the matter created in Au+Au collisions at RHIC. Heavy-flavor quark collectivity could be used to indicate the degree of thermalization of the light-flavor quarks. Heavy quark energy loss could give important information on color charge density of the medium. Direct reconstruction of open charm hadrons is essential for these measurements. The Heavy Flavor Tracker (HFT) is a proposed upgrade of the STAR experiment. Full GEANT simulation of tracking with HFT was performed, showing its excellent capability to reconstruct open charm hadrons in broad p_T range at midrapidity. Estimated errors on measurement of D0 meson v_2 and R_{CP} are presented.

    Following the intriguing hints of deviations from the Standard Model in rare B meson decays, searches for rare and forbidden decays of charm hadrons become a hot topic again. We present recent results on Flavour Changing Neutral Current $D^{0}\\rightarrow\\mu^+ \\mu^-$, $D^0 \\rightarrow\\mu^+\\mu^- \\pi^+ \\pi^-$, $D^{\\pm}_{(s)}\\rightarrow \\pi^{\\pm} \\mu^+\\mu^-$ and LFV $D^{\\pm}_{(s)}\\rightarrow \\pi^{\\mp}\\mu^{\\pm}\\mu^{\\pm}$ obtained at LHCb.

    We formulate lattice fermions in a way that encompasses Wilson fermions as well as the static and non-relativistic approximations. In particular, we treat $m_qa$ systematically ($m_q$ is the fermion mass) showing how to understand the Wilson action as an effective action for systems with $\\vek{p}\\ll m_q$. The results show how to extract matrix elements and the spectrum from simulations with $m_qa\\approx1$, which is relevant for the charm quark.

  12. New Physics from rare decays of charm

    2016-01-01

    Abundance of charm data in the current and future low energy flavor experiments makes it possible to study rare decays of D-mesons with ever increased precision. I discuss theoretical implications of derived constraints on New Physics models from these transitions. I argue that those constraints could be competitive with results of direct searches for New Physics particles (including Dark Matter) at the Large Hadron Collider.

    Since the discovery of the first charmed meson in 1976, many open-charm and open-bottom mesons were observed. In 2003 two narrow charm-strange states $D_{s0}^*(2317)$ and $D_{s1}(2460)$ were discovered by the BaBar and CLEO Collaborations, respectively. After that, more excited heavy mesons were reported. In this work, we review the experimental and theoretical progress in this field.

    We search for the charmed pentaquark candidate reported by the H1 collaboration, the Theta_c(3100)^0, in e^+e^- interactions at a center-of-mass (c.m.) energy of 10.58 GeV, using 124~fb-1 of data recorded with the BaBar detector at the PEP-II e^+e^- facility at SLAC. We find no evidence for such a state in the same pD^{*-} decay mode reported by H1, and we set limits on its production cross section times branching fraction into pD^{*-} as a function of c.m. momentum. The corresponding limit on its total rate per e^+e^- -> qqbar event, times branching fraction, is about three orders of magnitude lower than rates measured for the charmed Lambda_c and Sigma_c baryons in such events.

  15. Looking for a hidden-charm pentaquark state with strangeness S =-1 from Ξb- decay into J /ψ K-Λ

    Assuming that the recently observed hidden-charm pentaquark state, Pc(4450 ) , is of molecular nature as predicted in the unitary approach, we propose to study the decay of Ξb-→J /ψ K-Λ to search for the strangeness counterpart of the Pc(4450 ) . There are three ingredients in the decay mechanism: the weak decay mechanism, the hadronization mechanism, and the final state interactions in the meson-baryon system of strangeness S =-2 and isospin I =1 /2 and of the J /ψ Λ . All these have been tested extensively. As a result, we provide a genuine prediction of the invariant mass distributions where a strangeness hidden-charm pentaquark state, the counterpart of the Pc(4450 ) , can be clearly seen. The decay rate is estimated to be of similar magnitude as the Λb0→J /ψ K-p measured by the LHCb Collaboration.

  16. Charmed particle lifetimes. [Review, six quark model

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    1979-01-01

    Conventional estimates are reviewed for charmed particle lifetimes. Free-quark models give values of (a few) x 10/sup -13/ sec to (a few) x 10/sup -12/ sec. The shorter of these values also follows from an extrapolation based on D ..-->.. Ke/sup nu/. Possible differences among the lifetimes and production rates of D/sup 0/, D/sup +/, F/sup +/, C/sub 0//sup +/, the heavy lepton tau, and the fifth quark b are discussed. Extreme values of mixing angles in a six-quark model could extend charmed particle lifetimes by a factor of at most three from the above estimates, while shorter lifetimes than those predicted could occur for some species like D/sup 0/ or F/sup +/ if their nonleptonic decays were enhanced. The predictions are discussed in the light of some current experimental results, and it is estimated that sigma(pp ..-->.. charm) approx. = 10 ..mu..b at 400 GeV/c. 95 references.

  17. How much charm can PANDA create?

    At the future PANDA experiment at the FAIR facility in Darmstadt, proton-antiproton collisions will be studied at an energy up to {approx_equal}5.5 GeV, which suffices to produce charmed hadron pairs like D anti D or {Lambda}{sub c} anti {Lambda}{sub c}. Their yet unknown production cross sections are of special interest for flavour physics, since they could provide higher statistics for the investigation of charmed hadrons, if large enough. Importantly they also give the opportunity to study fundamental interaction dynamics of hadrons and its connection to QCD. It is a difficult task to predict these cross sections, since the energy here is still slightly above the production threshold and so not easily accessible to perturbative QCD. We describe the process by a model based on the effective exchange of intermediating hadrons according to Regge theory. An important ingredient are process-dependent coupling constants between certain hadrons, which we calculate using the method of QCD light-cone sum rules. Making use of the Regge model we give an improved estimate of the cross sections for exclusive open charm production at PANDA energies.

  18. Charm CPV and rare decays at LHCb

    Morello, Michael Joseph

    2016-01-01

    Charm physics has been playing all along a role in particle physics, by contributing to the for-mulation of the Standard Model (SM) as it is known nowadays. The level of attention on it has tremendously increased in recent years because of the first experimental observations of the slow mixing rate of the $D^0 − \\overline{D}^0$ flavour oscillations, providing definitely a full range of probes, entirely complementary to the $B$ and $K$ mesons, for mixing and $CP$- violation. In fact the charm quark is the only up-type quark that manifests flavour oscillations. Only in recent years it has been possible to collect huge and very clean samples of $D$ meson decays, several orders of magnitude larger in size than in the past, allowing also for the first time approaching the small SM expectations for $CP$-violation below the $10^{−3}$ level. Thus, the dynamics of the charm quark can be probed for the presence of New Physics with negligible SM “background”, since any generic non-SM contribu-tion would naturall...

  19. Open charm tomography of cold nuclear matter

    Vitev, I; Johnson, M B; Qiu, J W

    2006-01-01

    We study the relative contribution of partonic sub-processes to D meson production and D meson-triggered inclusive di-hadrons to lowest order in perturbative QCD. While gluon fusion dominates the creation of large angle DD-bar pairs, charm on light parton scattering determines the yield of single inclusive D mesons. The distinctly different non-perturbative fragmentation of c quarks into D mesons versus the fragmentation of quarks and gluons into light hadrons results in a strong transverse momentum dependence of anticharm content of the away-side charm-triggered jet. In p+A reactions, we calculate and resum the coherent nuclear-enhanced power corrections from the final state partonic scattering in the medium. We find that single and double inclusive open charm production can be suppressed as much as the yield of neutral pions from dynamical high-twist shadowing. Effects of energy loss in p+A collisions are also investigated phenomenologically and may lead to significantly weaker transverse momentum dependenc...

  20. Lifetimes of charm and beauty hadrons

    Science.gov (United States)

    Bellini, G.; Bigi, I. I.; Dornan, P. J.

    1997-10-01

    Major breakthroughs have been achieved in the determination of the lifetimes of charm and beauty hadrons. Much larger data samples than previously have become available and new experimental devices and techniques have been developed and employed. The lifetimes of all weakly decaying singly charmed hadrons have been measured, some with an accuracy of a few percent. The difference in the shortest lifetime - τ(Ω c) - and the longest one - τ( D+) - is given by a factor of close to ten. The experimental status of beauty lifetimes, while less complete, has still reached a new level of quality and is now better than 5% for the commoner states. New theoretical tools, based mainly on heavy quark expansions, have been developed; they incorporate as well as transcend earlier phenomenological descriptions. The observed pattern in the charm lifetime ratios is reproduced in a semi-quantitative manner as well as could be expected; as far as the beauty lifetime ratios are concerned some problems may well be emerging. The maturity level achieved in the measurements bodes quite well for future challenges where reliable and efficient tracking of the decay vertices will be crucial.

  1. Strange Baryon to Meson Ratio

    CERN Document Server

    Cuautle, Eleazar

    2013-01-01

    We present a model to compute baryon and meson transverse momentum distributions, and their ratios, in relativistic heavy-ion collisions. The model allows to compute the probability to form colorless bound states of either two or three quarks as functions of the evolving density during the collision. The qualitative differences of the baryon to meson ratio for different collision energies and for different particle species can be associated to the different density dependent probabilities and to the combinatorial factors which in turn depend on whether the quarks forming the bound states are heavy or light. We compare to experimental data and show that we obtain a good description up to intermediate values of $pt$.

    2007-01-01

    We review our attempts to discover lost baryons at low redshift with ``X-ray forest'' of absorption lines from the warm-hot intergalactic medium. We discuss the best evidence to date along the Mrk 421 sightline. We then discuss the missing baryons in the Local Group and the significance of the z=0 absorption systems in X-ray spectra. We argue that the debate over the Galactic vs. extragalactic origin of the z=0 systems is premature as these systems likely contain both components. Observations with next generation X-ray missions such as Constellation-X and XEUS will be crucial to map out the warm-hot intergalactic medium.

  4. Measurement of Charm Meson Lifetimes

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We report measurements of the D0 , D+ , and D+s meson lifetimes using 3.7 fb-1 of e+e- annihilation data collected near the Υ(4S) resonance with the CLEO detector. The measured lifetimes of the D0 , D+ , and D+s mesons are 408.5±4.1+3.5-3.4 fs , 1033.6±22.1+9.9-12.7 fs , and 486.3±15.0+4.9-5.1 fs . The precision of these lifetimes are comparable to those of the best previous measurements, and the systematic errors are very different. In a single experiment we find that the ratio of the D+s and D0 lifetimes is 1.19±0.04 . copyright 1999 The American Physical Society

  5. Addendum: Triton and hypertriton binding energies calculated from SU_6 quark-model baryon-baryon interactions

    CERN Document Server

    Fujiwara, Y; Kohno, M; Miyagawa, K

    2007-01-01

    Previously we calculated the binding energies of the triton and hypertriton, using an SU_6 quark-model interaction derived from a resonating-group method of two baryon clusters. In contrast to the previous calculations employing the energy-dependent interaction kernel, we present new results using a renormalized interaction, which is now energy independent and reserves all the two-baryon data. The new binding energies are slightly smaller than the previous values. In particular the triton binding energy turns out to be 8.14 MeV with a charge-dependence correction of the two-nucleon force, 190 keV, being included. This indicates that about 350 keV is left for the energy which is to be accounted for by three-body forces.

    The need for dark matter is briefly reviewed. A wealth of observational information points to the existence of a non-baryonic component. To the theoretically favoured candidates today belong axions, supersymmetric particles, and to some extent massive neutrinos. The theoretical foundation and experimental situation for each of these is reviewed. In particular, indirect detection methods of supersymmetric dark matter are described.

  7. Smallness of tree-dominated charmless two-body baryonic B decay rates

    Cheng, Hai-Yang; Chua, Chun-Khiang

    2015-02-01

    The long-awaited baryonic B decay B¯0→p p ¯ was recently observed by LHCb with a branching fraction of order 1 0-8. All the earlier model predictions are too large compared with experiment. In this work, we point out that for a given tree operator Oi, the contribution from its Fiertz transformed operator, an effect often missed in the literature, tends to cancel the internal W -emission amplitude induced from Oi. The wave function of low-lying baryons is symmetric in momenta and the quark flavor with the same chirality but antisymmetric in color indices. Using these symmetry properties and the chiral structure of weak interactions, we find that half of the Feynman diagrams responsible for internal W emission cancel. Since this feature holds in the charmless modes but not in the charmful ones, we advocate that the partial cancellation accounts for the smallness of the tree-dominated charmless two-body baryonic B decays. This also explains why most previous model calculations predicted too large rates as the above consideration was not taken into account. Finally, we emphasize that, contrary to the claim in the literature, the internal W -emission tree amplitude should be proportional to the Wilson coefficient c1+c2 rather than c1-c2.

    By fitting simultaneously the values of {xi}=1/N{sub c} and {alpha}{sub s}(m{sub c}{sup 2}) on the inclusive rates of the Cabibbo allowed decays D, F{yields}PP and D{yields}PV, which are independent of the final state interactions, we find {xi}=0 and {alpha}{sub s}(m{sub c}{sup 2})=0.44. In order to explain the rescattering of the final states produced in the non-leptonic decays of charmed D-particles and to make theoretical predictions for all the exclusive channels, we propose a rescattering model based on the production of resonances in SU(3)-symmetry. In the PP sector we predict a new multiplet of meson resonances 0{sup +} which allows us with few free parameters, to obtain a satisfactory agreement between theoretical predictions and experimental data. Unfortunately, such an agreement cannot be obtained in the PV sector, for which the presence of other rescattering effects is needed to balance the exotic channel D{sup +}{yields}PV. In the PV sector we do not use any free parameter. Finally, we also make predicitions for the Cabibbo allowed decay channels B{yields}PP, PV, without considering in this case the final state interactions, because of the high energy of the decay products.

  10. Transport coefficients of heavy baryons

    Tolos, Laura; Torres-Rincon, Juan M.; Das, Santosh K.

    2016-08-01

    We compute the transport coefficients (drag and momentum diffusion) of the low-lying heavy baryons Λc and Λb in a medium of light mesons formed at the later stages of high-energy heavy-ion collisions. We employ the Fokker-Planck approach to obtain the transport coefficients from unitarized baryon-meson interactions based on effective field theories that respect chiral and heavy-quark symmetries. We provide the transport coefficients as a function of temperature and heavy-baryon momentum, and analyze the applicability of certain nonrelativistic estimates. Moreover we compare our outcome for the spatial diffusion coefficient to the one coming from the solution of the Boltzmann-Uehling-Uhlenbeck transport equation, and we find a very good agreement between both calculations. The transport coefficients for Λc and Λb in a thermal bath will be used in a subsequent publication as input in a Langevin evolution code for the generation and propagation of heavy particles in heavy-ion collisions at LHC and RHIC energies.

  11. Measurement of charm and beauty production in deep inelastic scattering at HERA

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In this thesis two measurements of heavy quark production in deep inelastic scattering at HERA are presented. Cross sections for the production of heavy quarks can be calculated in quantum chromodynamics (QCD). The heavy quark masses represent hard scales, which allow to apply perturbative methods. Charm production has been measured with the ZEUS detector using an integrated luminosity of 120 pb-1. The hadronic decay channels D+ → K0Sπ+, Λ+c → pK0S and Λ+c → Λπ+ were reconstructed. The presence of a neutral strange hadron in the final state reduces the combinatorial background and extends the measured sensitivity into the region pT(D+, Λ+c) T2 (D+), η(D+), Q2 and x for the production of D+ mesons are in reasonable agreement with predictions from perturbative QCD. The fraction of c quarks hadronising into Λ+c baryons was extracted from a combination of both investigated Λ+c decay channels. The result is consistent with a previous measurement in the photoproduction regime and with the average e+e- value. The production of charm and beauty quarks has been measured with the ZEUS detector using the data collected between 2004 and 2007. This data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 354 pb-1. The charm and beauty contents in events with a jet were determined using the decay-length significance and invariant mass of the reconstructed secondary decay vertices. Differential cross sections in EjetT, ηjet, Q2 and x are in reasonable agreement with predictions for perturbative QCD. The open charm and beauty contributions to the inclusive proton structure function F2 were extracted from double differential cross sections in x and Q2. The obtained Fcantic2 and Fbantib2 values are in good agreement with previous measurements and theoretical predictions. This measurement represents the most precise determination of Fbantib2 at the HERA collider in a large part of the accessible phase space.

  12. A New Method for Obtaining the Baryons Mass under the Killingbeck Plus Isotonic Oscillator Potentials

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available The spectrum of ground state and excited baryons (N, Δ, Λ, Σ, Ξ, and Ω particles has been investigated by using nonrelativistic quantum mechanics under the Killingbeck plus isotonic oscillator potentials. Using the Jacobi coordinates, anzast method, and generalized Gürsey Radicati (GR mass formula the three-body-wave equation is solved to calculate the different states of the considered baryons. A comparison between our calculations and the available experimental data shows that the position of the Roper resonances of the nucleon, the ground states, and the excited multiplets up to three GeV are in general well reproduced. Also one can conclude that the interaction between the quark constituents of baryon resonances could be described adequately by using the combination of Killingbeck and isotonic oscillator potentials form.

  13. Baryons with Two Heavy Quarks as Solitons

    1994-01-01

    Using the chiral soliton model and heavy quark symmetry we study baryons containing two heavy quarks. If there exists a stable (under strong interactions) meson consisting of two heavy quarks and two light ones, then we find that there always exists a state of this meson bound to a chiral soliton and to a chiral anti-soliton, corresponding to a two heavy quark baryon and a baryon containing two heavy anti-quarks and five light quarks, or a ``heptaquark".

  14. The Heavy Baryon Physics by means LEP

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This report describes the experimental research about the heavy baryons which were obtained in the last decade at LEP. The most important among them concern the lifetimes of beauty baryons. The methods of theoretical description of heavy hadrons together with the LEP experimental apparatus are also discussed. Heavy baryon studies are shown in a broader perspective of other LEP results: the test of the standard model and the latest measurements concerning the beauty mesons. (author)

  15. High-accuracy measurement of the π-p total cross section for the search of narrow baryon resonances with masses between 2,16 GeV/c2 and 5,2 GeV/c2

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The principle of the apparatus and of the momentum measurement, and the resonance detection ranges with which the study deals are presented. The acquisition systems includes a micro-computer μA. An on-line acquisition program has been developed. The principle of narrow resonance detection consists in measuring their σsub(TOT) or excitation function without taking into account systematic errors from one data acquisition to another one; this excitation function is obtained from raw data without substracting the effect of empty target. The e-, K-, antip contamination is measured. The corrections to one-line measurements consist, on one hand, of the unefficiency, and on the other hand of the overefficiency of the muon detector. Finally, the study deals with the search of N* and Δ resonances

    Inclusive studies of the electron content, kaon content, and associated electron-kaon content of the decays of D mesons and other charmed particles produced in electron-positron annihilation are presented. At the psi(3772) resonance the following inclusive branching ratios for D meson decays to charged kaons were measured. Also at the psi(3772) resonance the average semileptonic branching ratio for D/sup 0/ and D/sup +/ decays to electrons has been measured to be .076 +- .028. The average semileptonic branching ratio of charmed particles produced in e/sup +/e/sup -/ annihilation at center-of-mass energies from 3.9 to 7.4 GeV is found to be equal within errors to that of the D's. At all energies the electron momentum spectra are consistent with a combination of the decays D ..-->.. Ke nu and D ..-->.. K*e nu. 84 references.

    Kim, H -Ch; Göke, K

    2007-01-01

    We report the recent results of the magnetic transitions and axial-vector transitions of the baryon antidecuplet within the framework of the chiral quark-soliton model. The dynamical model parameters are fixed by experimental data for the magnetic moments of the baryon octet, for the hyperon semileptonic decay constants, and for the singlet axial-vector constant. The transition magnetic moments $\\mu_{\\Lambda\\Sigma}$ and $\\mu_{N\\Delta}$ are well reproduced and other octet-decuplet and octet-antidecuplet transitions are predicted. In particular, the present calculation of $\\mu_{\\Sigma\\Sigma^*}$ is found to be below the upper bound $0.82\\mu_N$ that the SELEX collaboration measured very recently. The results explains consistently the recent findings of a new $N^*$ resonance from the GRAAL and Tohoku LNS group. We also obtain the transition axial-vector constants for the $\\Theta^+\\to KN$ from which the decay width of the $\\Theta^{+}$ pentaquark baryon is determined as a function of the pion-nucleon sigma term $\\Si...

  20. The baryon spectroscopy from J/psi decays

    2000-01-01

    J/psi decay at Beijing Electron-Positron Collider (BEPC) is well known as the best place for looking for glueballs. But in fact it is also an excellent place for studying N sup * and hyperon physics. For J/psi -> N Nbar pi and N Nbar pi pi, the pi N and pi pi N systems are limited to be pure isospin ((1)/(2)) due to isospin conservation. This is a big advantage in studying N* resonances from J/psi decays, compared with the pi N and gamma N experiments which suffer difficulty on the isospin decomposition of 1/2 and 3/2. There are also plenty other decay modes of J/psi involving baryon-antibaryon pairs plus mesons which can be used to study N* and hyperon resonances, e.g., looking for the 'missing' N* states from J/psi -> pbarp omega, pbarp eta', pK sup - Lbar, etc.; studying N sup * (1535) -> eta p from J/psi -> pbarp eta and studying LAMBDA(1405) -> SIGMA pi from J/psi -> LAMBDA Sbar sup -pi sup +. It provides a new way to study the internal structure of baryon resonances. The newest progress and outlook in t...

  1. Baryon spectroscopy - Recent results from the CBELSA/TAPS experiment

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hartmann, Jan

    2016-05-01

    One of the remaining challenges within the standard model is to gain a good understanding of QCD in the non-perturbative regime. One key step toward this aim is baryon spectroscopy, investigating the spectrum and the properties of baryon resonances. To get access to resonances with small πN partial width, photoproduction experiments provide essential information. In order to extract the contributing resonances, partial wave analyses need to be performed. Here, a complete experiment is required to unambiguously determine the contributing amplitudes. This involves the measurement of carefully chosen single and double polarization observables. The CBELSA/TAPS experiment with a longitudinally or transversely polarized target and an energy tagged, linearly or circularly polarized photon beam allows the measurement of a large set of polarization observables. Due to its good energy resolution, high detection effciency for photons, and the nearly complete solid angle coverage, it is ideally suited for the measurement of photoproduction of neutral mesons decaying into photons. Recent results for various double polarization observables in π0 and η photoproduction and their impact on the partial wave analysis are discussed.

    The need for dark matter is briefly reviewed. A wealth of observational information points to the existence of a non-baryonic component. To the theoretically favoured candidates today belong axions, supersymmetric particles, and to some extent massive neutrinos. The theoretical foundation and experimental situation for each of these is reviewed. In particular, indirect detection methods of supersymmetric dark matter are described. Present experiments are just reaching the required sensitivity to discover or rule out some of these candidates, and major improvements are planned over the next few years.

    An extensive study of the e{sup +}e{sup -}{yields}pp{sup Macron }BABAR cross section data is presented.

Other e{sup +}e{sup -} {yields} baryon-antibaryon cross sections show a similar behavior near threshold.

    CERN Document Server

    2001-01-01

    This book describes baryon models constructed from quarks, mesons and chiral symmetry. The role of chiral symmetry and of quark model structure with SU(6) spin-flavor symmetry are discussed in detail, starting from a pedagogic introduction. Emphasis is placed on symmetry aspects of the theories. As an application, the chiral bag model is studied for nucleon structure, where important methods of theoretical physics, mostly related to the semiclassical approach for a system of strong interactions, are demonstrated. The text is more practical than formal; tools and ideas are explained in detail w

    We perform a lattice study of heavy baryons, containing one ($\\Lambda_b$) or two $b$-quarks ($\\Xi_b$). Using the quenched approximation we obtain for the mass of $\\Lambda_b$ $$ M_{\\Lambda_b}= 5.728 \\pm 0.144 \\pm 0.018 {\\rm GeV}.$$ The mass splitting between the $\\Lambda_b$ and the B-meson is found to increase by about 20\\% if the light quark mass is varied from the chiral limit to the strange quark mass.

    Selected new results from the H1 and ZEUS collaborations on ep interactions at 300-318 GeV centre-of-mass energy are presented. The full pre-upgrade integrated luminosity of HERA of 110 pb-1 is used. Charm cross sections are measured up to high values of xB and Q2 and are found to be well described by NLO QCD in the 3 flavour scheme. Orbitally excited D mesons are observed; radial excitations are searched for, but are not seen. The first b cross section measurement is confirmed with a lifetime based method, establishing the excess over NLO QCD. (author)

    In this article,we assume that the Ds(2700) is a tetraquark state,which consists of a scalar diquark and a vector antidiquark,and calculate its mass with the QCD sum rules.The numerical result indicates that the mass of the vector charmed tetraquark state is about Mv = (3.75±0.18) GeV or Mv = (3.71±0.15) GeV from different sum rules,which is about 1 GeV larger than the experimental data.Such tetraquark component should be very small in the Ds(2700).

    2012-01-01

    The LHCb experiment is a general purpose forward spectrometer operating at the Large Hadron Collider, optimized for the study of B and D hadrons. LHCb recorded 1.0 fb$^{-1}$ of integrated luminosity during 2011 data taking, collecting unprecedented large samples of B decays to final states involving charmed mesons. These decays offer several complementary measurements of CP violation and CKM matrix parameters, and serve as a laboratory for testing effective theories of hadron decays. We present a selection of new world leading results in these types of decays, including first observations of new modes, world best branching ratio measurements and studies of resonant substructures.

  11. Conformal symmetry and light flavor baryon spectra

    CERN Document Server

    Kirchbach, M

    2010-01-01

    The degeneracy among parity pairs systematically observed in the N and Delta spectra is interpreted as signature for conformal symmetry realization in the light flavor baryon sector in consequence of AdS/CFT. The case is made by showing that all the observed N and Delta resonances with masses below 2500 MeV distribute fairly well over the first levels of a unitary representation of the conformal group, a representation that covers the spectrum of a quark-diquark system, placed directly on the AdS_5 cone, conformally compactified to R^1*S^3. The free geodesic motion on the S^3 manifold is described by means of the scalar conformal equation there, which is of the Klein-Gordon type. The equation is then gauged by the "curved" Coulomb potential that has the form of a cotangent function. Conformal symmetry is not exact, this because the gauge potential slightly modifies the conformal centrifugal barrier of the free geodesic motion. Thanks to this, the degeneracy between P11-S11 pairs from same level is relaxed, wh...

Some of the physical implications of these results are also discussed. (orig.)

  16. Exploring the simplest purely baryonic decay processes

    CERN Document Server

    Geng, C Q; Rodrigues, Eduardo

    2016-01-01

    We propose to search for purely baryonic decay processes at the LHCb experiment. In particular, we concentrate on the decay $\\Lambda_b^0\\to p\\bar pn$, which is the simplest purely baryonic decay mode, with solely spin-1/2 baryons involved. We predict its decay branching ratio to be ${\\cal B}(\\Lambda_b^0\\to p\\bar pn)=(2.0^{+0.3}_{-0.2})\\times 10^{-6}$, which is sufficiently large to make the decay mode accessible to LHCb. Though not considered in general, purely baryonic decays could shed light on the puzzle of the baryon number asymmetry in the universe by means of a better understanding of the baryonic nature of our matter world. As such, they constitute a yet unexplored class of decay processes worth investigating. Our study can be extended to the purely baryonic decays of $\\Lambda_b^0\\to p\\bar p \\Lambda$, $\\Lambda_b^0\\to \\Lambda \\bar p\\Lambda$ and $\\Lambda_b^0\\to \\Lambda\\bar \\Lambda\\Lambda$, as well as other similar anti-triplet $b$-baryon decays, such as $\\Xi_b^{0,-}$.

  1. Baryon symmetric big bang cosmology

    Science.gov (United States)

    Stecker, F. W.

    1978-01-01

    Both the quantum theory and Einsteins theory of special relativity lead to the supposition that matter and antimatter were produced in equal quantities during the big bang. It is noted that local matter/antimatter asymmetries may be reconciled with universal symmetry by assuming (1) a slight imbalance of matter over antimatter in the early universe, annihilation, and a subsequent remainder of matter; (2) localized regions of excess for one or the other type of matter as an initial condition; and (3) an extremely dense, high temperature state with zero net baryon number; i.e., matter/antimatter symmetry. Attention is given to the third assumption, which is the simplest and the most in keeping with current knowledge of the cosmos, especially as pertains the universality of 3 K background radiation. Mechanisms of galaxy formation are discussed, whereby matter and antimatter might have collided and annihilated each other, or have coexisted (and continue to coexist) at vast distances. It is pointed out that baryon symmetric big bang cosmology could probably be proved if an antinucleus could be detected in cosmic radiation.

  2. A Heavy Baryonic Galactic Disc

    CERN Document Server

    Davies, Jonathan

    2012-01-01

    We investigate the possibility that the observed rotation of galaxies can be accounted for by invoking a massive baryonic disc with no need for non-baryonic dark matter or a massive halo. There are 5 primary reasons for suggesting this: 1. there are well known disc surface mass density distributions that naturally produce the observed rotation curves of galaxies. 2. there are a number of rotation curve `puzzles' that cannot be explained by a massive dark matter halo i.e. the success of maximum disc fitting, HI gas scaling to the observed rotation, the disc/halo conspiracy and the interpretation of the Tully-Fisher relation. 3. recent 21cm observations show an almost constant HI surface density and a distinct `cut-off' or edge to galactic discs. We explain this constant surface density in terms of either an optical depth effect or the onset of molecular gas formation and hence the possibility of considerably more gas existing in galaxies. We suggest that the HI cut-off does indeed mark the edge of the galactic...

  3. Strange decays of nonstrange baryons

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The strong decays of excited nonstrange baryons into the final states ΛK, ΣK, and for the first time into Λ(1405)K, Λ(1520)K, Σ(1385)K, ΛK*, and ΣK*, are examined in a relativized quark pair creation model. The wave functions and parameters of the model are fixed by previous calculations of Nπ and Nππ, etc., decays. The results show that it should be possible to discover several new negative parity excited baryons and confirm the discovery of several others by analyzing these final states in kaon production experiments. They also establish clear predictions for the relative strengths of certain states to decay to Λ(1405)K and Λ(1520)K, which can be tested to determine if a three-quark model of the Λ(1405)K is valid. The authors results compare favorably with the results of partial wave analyses of the limited existing data for the ΛK and ΣK channels. They do not find large ΣK decay amplitudes for a substantial group of predicted and weakly established negative-parity states, in contrast to the only previous work to consider decays of these states into the strange final states ΛK and ΣK

    2016-01-01

    We show that the masses of the lowest-lying heavy baryons can be very well described in a pion mean-field approach. We consider a heavy baryon as a system consisting of the $N_c-1$ light quarks that induce the pion mean field, and a heavy quark as a static color source under the influence of this mean field. In this approach we derive a number of \\textit{model-independent} relations and calculate the heavy baryon masses using those of the lowest-lying light baryons as input. The results are in remarkable agreement with the experimental data. In addition, the mass of the $\\Omega_b^*$ baryon is predicted.

Our results rely on the relativistic chiral Lagrangian and large-$N_c$ sum rule estimates of the counter terms relevant for the baryon masses at N$^3$LO. A partial summation is implied by the use of physical baryon and meson masses in the one-loop contributions to the baryon self energies. A simultaneous description of the lattice results of the BMW, LHPC, PACS and HSC groups is achieved. We predict the pion- and strangeness sigma terms and the pion-mass dependence of the octet and decuplet ground states at different strange quark masses.

  6. CP violation and mixing in charm decays at Belle

    We have searched for CP violation of charmed mesons in the decays D {yields} K{sup 0}{sub S} P, where D denotes D{sup 0}, D{sup +} and D{sub s}{sup +}, and P denotes the pseudo-scalar mesons {pi}{sup +}, K{sup +}, {pi}{sup 0}, {eta} and {eta}'. No evidence of CP violation in these decays is observed. We have measured the CP asymmetry difference between the Cabibbo suppressed decay D{sup +} {yields} {phi} {pi}{sup +} and the Cabibbo favored D{sub s}{sup +} {yields} {phi} {pi}{sup +} decays. The measured asymmetry is corrected for the residual asymmetry due to detector effects, and the contributions of both CP and forward-backward asymmetries are determined. We also present a measurement of D{sup 0}-anti-D{sup 0} mixing parameters in three-body D{sup 0} decays using a time-dependent Dalitz plot analysis. These results are obtained on a large data sample collected at and near the {Upsilon}(4S) resonance with the Belle detector operating at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e{sup +} e{sup -} collider.

  7. The Italian Tau/charm project

    Full Text Available A τ/charm Factory, an e + e- collider with very high luminosity at the 2–4.6 GeV center of mass energy, to be built on the Rome University at Tor Vergata campus, was studied by the Consortium Nicola Cabibbo Laboratory and the INFN Frascati Laboratories. This project is the natural evolution of the flagship Italian project SuperB Factory, funded by the Italian Government in 2010 with a budget that turned out to be insufficient to cover the total costs of the project. The study of rare events at the τ/charm energy was already planned as a Phase-II of SuperB [1]. This design keeps all the unique features of SuperB, including the polarization of the electron beam, with the possibility to take data in a larger energy range, with reduced accelerator dimensions and construction and operation costs. A Report on the accelerator design has been published in September 2013 [2].

  8. Charm and beauty structure of the proton

    2007-01-01

    This paper will review the data collected by the H1 and ZEUS Collaborations concerning the production of heavy quarks (charm and beauty) at the electron-proton collider HERA. Heavy quark production is an important testing ground for quantum chromodynamics (QCD), because QCD calculations are expected to be reliable if a hard scale is present in the process. In heavy quarks production a hard scale is provided by the quark mass. Moreover heavy quarks production can give direct access to the gluon density in the proton due to the fact that it proceeds, in QCD, almost exclusively via photon-gluon fusion, where a photon from the incoming electron interacts with a gluon in the proton giving an heavy quark-anti-quark pair. Results will be shown both for deep-inelastic scattering (DIS), where the virtuality of the exchanged boson Q**2 is large, and photo-production, where the Q**2 is equal to zero. Various experimental techniques are used in order to select charm and beauty events, ranging from the measurement of D* c...

  9. Charm mixing in the framework of HQE

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Bobrowski, Markus; Lenz, Alexander [Universitaet Regensburg (Germany)

    2010-07-01

    In this talk we issue the quark-level analysis of meson-antimeson mixing in the charm system. Although a naive application of the heavy-quark-expansion (HQE) approach to D{sup 0} mesons fails to reproduce the experimental width differences by orders of magnitude, we argue that currently there seem to be no indications for a complete breakdown of HQE-based techniques in the leading dimensions 6 and 7. The smallness of current quark-level based theory predictions can be understood as a result of efficient GIM interference between numerically rather large diagrams; any mechanism, which helps to lift this suppression, could possibly serve as a solution to this problem: This may be new physics modifications of CKM couplings or enhancement of SU(3){sub F} symmetry breaking. Within the Standard Model, GIM lifting is sometimes supposed to come along with the cutting of internal quark loops in dimension 9 and 12 of the HQE. Reliable results for the quark-level expectation could finally provide a test of quark-hadron duality in the charm sector.

  10. Rare and Challenging Charm Decays at LHCb

    CERN Document Server

    Greening, Ed

    This thesis presents two studies of charged charm meson decays using proton-proton collision data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3 fb$^{-1}$, recorded by the LHCb experiment. A search for $D^+_{(s)} \\to \\pi^+ \\mu^+ \\mu^-$ decays is performed. Rare decays of charged charm mesons have not previously been observed unlike their counterpart $B$ meson and kaon decays. Such decays are $c \\to u$ quark transitions and take place via loop diagrams within the Standard Model. Measurements of their branching fractions are an indirect test of New Physics, whose virtual contributions may enhance such quantities. No signals are observed and the 90% (95%) $CL$ limits on the branching fractions, the most stringent to date, are found to be, \\begin{eqnarray*} \\mathcal{B}(D^+ \\to \\pi^+ \\mu^+ \\mu^-) < 2.9 \\, (3.3) \\times 10^{-8},\\\\ \\mathcal{B}(D^+_{s} \\to \\pi^+ \\mu^+ \\mu^-) < 1.76 \\, (1.91) \\times 10^{-7}. \\end{eqnarray*} The charge asymmetry measurement of $D^+ \\to \\pi^+ \\pi^0$ using $\\pi^0 \\to e^+ e^- \\gamma...

  11. B Decay Charm Counting Via Topological Vertexing

    CERN Document Server

    Chou, Aaron Sze Ting

    2002-01-01

    We present a new and unique measurement of the branching fractions of b hadrons to states with 0, 1, and 2 open charm hadrons, using a sample of 350,000 hadronic Z0 decays collected during the SLD/SLC 97–98 run. The analysis takes advantage of the excellent vertexing resolution of the VXD3, a pixel-based CCD vertex detector, which allows the separation of B and cascade D decay vertices. A fit of the vertex count and the decay length distributions to distribution shapes predicted by Monte Carlo simulation allows the extraction of the inclusive branching fractions. We measure: BRB→0D X=3.7±1.1 stat±2.1 syst% BRB→2D X=17.9±1.4 stat±3.3 syst% where B, and D represent mixtures of open b and open c hadrons. The corresponding charm count, Nc = 1.188 ± 0.010 ± 0.040 ± 0.006 is consistent with previous measurement averages but slightly closer to theoretical expectations.

  12. Heavy Exotic Molecules with Charm and Bottom

    CERN Document Server

    Liu, Yizhuang

    2016-01-01

    We revisit the formation of pion-mediated heavy-light exotic molecules with both charm and bottom and their chiral partners under the general strictures of both heavy-quark and chiral symmetry. The chiral exotic partners with good parity formed using the $(0^+, 1^+)$ multiplet are about twice more bound than their primary exotic partners formed using the $(0^-,1^-)$ multiplet. The chiral couplings across the multiplets $(0^\\pm, 1^\\pm)$ cause the chiral exotic partners to unbind, and the primary exotic molecules to be about twice more bound, for $J\\leq 1$. Our multi-channel coupling results show that only the charm isosinglet exotic molecules with $J^{PC}=1^{++}$ binds, which we identify as the reported neutral $X(3872)$. Also, the bottom isotriplet exotic with $J^{PC}=1^{+-}$ binds, which we identify as a mixture of the reported charged exotics $Z^+_b(10610)$ and $Z^+_b(10650)$. The bound isosinglet with $J^{PC}=1^{++}$ is suggested as a possible neutral $X_b(10532)$ not yet reported.

    We calculate the rotational-vibrational spectrum in the BPS Skyrme model for the hedgehog skyrmion with baryon number one. The resulting excitation energies for the nucleon and delta Roper resonances are slightly above their experimental values. Together with the fact that in the standard Skyrme model these excitation energies are significantly lower than the experimental ones, this provides strong evidence for the conjecture that the inclusion of the BPS Skyrme model is necessary for a successful quantitative description of physical properties of baryons and nuclei.

  15. Associated charm production in neutrino-nucleus interactions

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In this paper a search for associated charm production both in neutral and charged current ν-nucleus interactions is presented. The improvement of automatic scanning systems in the CHORUS experiment allows an efficient search to be performed in emulsion for short-lived particles. Hence a search for rare processes, like the associated charm production, becomes possible through the observation of the double charm-decay topology with a very low background. About 130000 ν interactions located in the emulsion target have been analysed. Three events with two charm decays have been observed in the neutral-current sample with an estimated background of 0.18±0.05. The relative rate of the associated charm cross-section in deep inelastic ν interactions, σ(c anti cν)/σNCDIS=(3.62+2.95-2.42(stat)±0.54(syst)) x 10-3 has been measured. One event with two charm decays has been observed in charged-current νμ interactions with an estimated background of 0.18±0.06 and the upper limit on associated charm production in charged-current interactions at 90% C.L. has been found to be σ(c anti cμ-)/σCC-4.

  16. A Determination of the Charm Content of the Proton

    2016-01-01

    We present an unbiased determination of the charm content of the proton, in which the charm parton distribution function (PDF) is parametrized on the same footing as the light quarks and the gluon in a global PDF analysis. This determination relies on the calculation of deep-inelastic structure functions in the FONLL scheme, generalized to account for massive charm-initiated contributions. In contrast to the usual situation in which the charm PDF is assumed to be generated perturbatively by pair radiation off gluons and light quarks, vanishing at a scale set by the value of the charm mass m_c, we find that the fitted charm PDF vanishes within uncertainties at a scale Q~1.5 GeV for all x~0.1 and low scales does not vanish, but rather has an "intrinsic" component, very weakly scale dependent and almost independent of the value of m_c, carrying about 1% of the total momentum of the proton. The uncertainties in all other PDFs are only slightly increased by the inclusion of fitted charm, while the dependence of th...

    2003-10-06

    We review the current status of flavor-changing neutral currents in the charm sector. We focus on the standard-model predictions and identify the main sources of theoretical uncertainties in both charm mixing and rare charm decays. The potential of these observables for constraining short-distance physics in the standard model and its extensions is compromised by the presence of large nonperturbative effects. We examine the possible discovery windows in which short-distance physics can be tested and study the effects of various extensions of the standard model. The current experimental situation and future prospects are reviewed.

  18. Opportunities for high-sensitivity charm physics at Fermilab

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The CO initiative under consideration at Fermilab makes feasible a charm experiment reconstructing >109 charm decays, four orders - of magnitude beyond the largest extant sample. The experiment might commence data-taking as early as 1999. In addition to programmatic charm physics such as spectroscopy, lifetimes, and QCD tests, it will have significant new-physics reach in the areas of CP violation, flavor-changing neutral-current and lepton-number-violating decays, and Do bar D bar o mixing, and should observe direct CP violation in Cabibbo-suppressed D decays if it occurs at the level predicted by the Standard Model

  19. Charm current-current correlators in twisted mass lattice QCD

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The current correlator method has been shown to be a practical tool to extract the charm quark mass and strong coupling constant from Lattice QCD data as an alternative to the sum rule approach using experimental electron-positron annihilation cross section data. We report on the progress of an investigation of charm current-current correlators in Nf=2 Twisted Mass Lattice QCD. Upon determining the temporal moments of the current correlators we compare to the low-energy expansion of the moments in perturbative QCD and calculate the charm quark mass and strong coupling constant and in case of the vector current correlator directly compare both methods.

  20. Diquark model of the baryon spectrum

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The presence of a coherent diquark structure within baryons has been suggested, both as a computational tool for simplifying some types of baryon calculations, and as an explanation for scaling violations in deep inelastic scattering. In this paper we consider the implications of the diquark hypothesis for baryons spectroscopy. Treating the diquark as an s-wave bound state of two quarks reduces the problem of three-body quark excitations within baryons to that of a two-body quark-diquark interaction. The spin-dependent excitation levels of the quark-diquark system can then be calculated in perturbative QCD, using a non-relativistic one-gluon-exchange approximation. The spectrum generated by this model differs from the conventional symmetric quark model spectrum in several crucial respects. Firstly, spin-orbit mass splitting between baryons is easily accommodated in the diquark picture, unlike the conventional model, where it must be cancelled ad hoc in order to obtain a reasonable fit to the mass spectrum. Secondly, the QCD parameters needed to fit the baryon spectrum in the diquark model are essentially the same as those used in the meson spectrum. This allows us to give a unified description of spin-dependent forces in mesons and baryons, which has not been possible in the symmetric quark model. We conclude with a qualitative discussion of spin-independent (multiple gluon exchange) forces in the diquark model, using effective confining potentials of the form, V(r) approx. r/sup n/. 28 references

    Recently observed increase of direct CP asymmetry in charm meson nonleptonic decays is difficult to explain within the SM. If this effect is induced by new physics, this might be investigated in other charm processes. We propose to investigate new CP violating effects in rare decays $D \\to P \\ell^+ \\ell^-$, which arise due to the interference of resonant part of the long distance contribution and the new physics affected short distance contribution. Performing a model independent analysis, we...

  2. Dense detector for baryon decay

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Our studies indicate that the dense detector represents a potentially powerful means to search for baryon decay and to study this process, if it occurs. The detector has good angular resolution and particle identification properties for both showering and non-showering events. Its energy resolution is particularly good for muons, but pion, electron and photon energies can also be measured with resolutions of at least 25 percent (standard deviation). The dense detector has strong logistical advantages over other proposed schemes. These advantages imply not only a lower cost but also faster construction and higher reliability. A particular advantage is that the dense detector can be prototyped in order to optimize its characteristics prior to the construction of a large module. Subsequent modules can also be added easily, while the initial detector continues operation

  3. Holography, charge and baryon asymmetry

    CERN Document Server

    Mongan, T R

    2009-01-01

    The holographic principle indicates the finite number of bits of information available on the particle horizon describes all physics within the horizon. Linking information on the horizon with Standard Model particles requires a holographic model describing constituents (preons) of Standard Model particles in terms of bits of information on the horizon. Standard Model particles have charges 0, 1/3, 2/3 or 1 in units of the electron charge e, so bits in a preon model must be identified with fractional charge. Energy must be transferred to change the state of a bit, and labeling the low energy state of a bit e/3n and the high energy state -e/3n amounts to defining electric charge. Any such charged preon model will produce more protons than anti-protons at the time of baryogenesis and require baryon asymmetry. It will also produce more positrons than electrons, as suggested by astrophysical measurements.

    The hot, diffuse gas that fills the largest overdense structures in the Universe -- clusters of galaxies and a web of giant filaments connecting them -- provides us with tools to address a wide array of fundamental astrophysical and cosmological questions via observations in the X-ray band. Clusters are sensitive cosmological probes. To utilize their full potential for precision cosmology in the following decades, we must precisely understand their physics -- from their cool cores stirred by jets produced by the central supermassive black hole (itself fed by inflow of intracluster gas), to their outskirts, where the infall of intergalactic medium (IGM) drives shocks and accelerates cosmic rays. Beyond the cluster confines lies the virtually unexplored warm IGM, believed to contain most of the baryonic matter in the present-day Universe. As a depository of all the matter ever ejected from galaxies, it carries unique information on the history of energy and metal production in the Universe. Currently planned ma...

  5. The baryon spectrum and the hypercentral Constituent Quark Model

    CERN Document Server

    Giannini, M M

    2015-01-01

    The description of the baryon spectrum is performed using the hypercentral Consituent Quark Model (hCQM), mainly in comparison with the harmonic oscillator (h.o.). Recentlly many new states, at various levels of confidence have been observed, leading to a softening of the missing resonance problem in the case of positive parity states. However, the number of negative states is higher that predicted by the commonly used h.o. scheme and therefore one is forced to take into account also the higher energy shells, which contain an overall number of states much greater than the observed one. It is shown that, thanks to the peculiar level scheme of the hCQM, the recently observed negative parity states can be considered as belonging to the lower shells, keeping the missing resonance problem within more acceptable limits.

A crucial ingredient for the proper matching is the first complete treatment of baryon wave function renormalization in heavy baryon chiral perturbation theory.

  7. General solution of superconvergent sum rules for scattering of I=1 reggeons on baryons

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Superconvergent sum rules for reggeon-particle scattering are applied to scattering of reggeons αi (i=π, ρ, A2) with isospin I=1 on baryons with strangeness S=-1. The saturation scheme of these sum rules is determined on the basis of experimental data. Two series of baryon resonances with arbitrary isospins I and spins J=I+1/2 and J=I-1/2 are predicted. A general solution for vertices of interaction of these resonances with αi is found. Predictions for coupling vertices BαiB'(B, B'=Λ, Σ, Σ*) agree well with the experiment. It is shown that the condition of sum rules saturation by minimal number of resonances brings to saturation schemes resulting from experimental data. A general solution of sum rules for scattering of αi reggeons on Ξ and Ω hyperons is analyzed

  8. Baryon-Baryon Interactions ---Nijmegen Extended-Soft-Core Models---

    Science.gov (United States)

    Rijken, T. A.; Nagels, M. M.; Yamamoto, Y.

    We review the Nijmegen extended-soft-core (ESC) models for the baryon-baryon (BB) interactions of the SU(3) flavor-octet of baryons (N, Lambda, Sigma, and Xi). The interactions are basically studied from the meson-exchange point of view, in the spirit of the Yukawa-approach to the nuclear force problem [H. Yukawa, ``On the interaction of Elementary Particles I'', Proceedings of the Physico-Mathematical Society of Japan 17 (1935), 48], using generalized soft-core Yukawa-functions. These interactions are supplemented with (i) multiple-gluon-exchange, and (ii) structural effects due to the quark-core of the baryons. We present in some detail the most recent extended-soft-core model, henceforth referred to as ESC08, which is the most complete, sophisticated, and successful interaction-model. Furthermore, we discuss briefly its predecessor the ESC04-model [Th. A. Rijken and Y. Yamamoto, Phys. Rev. C 73 (2006), 044007; Th. A. Rijken and Y. Yamamoto, Ph ys. Rev. C 73 (2006), 044008; Th. A. Rijken and Y. Yamamoto, nucl-th/0608074]. For the soft-core one-boson-exchange (OBE) models we refer to the literature [Th. A. Rijken, in Proceedings of the International Conference on Few-Body Problems in Nuclear and Particle Physics, Quebec, 1974, ed. R. J. Slobodrian, B. Cuec and R. Ramavataram (Presses Universitè Laval, Quebec, 1975), p. 136; Th. A. Rijken, Ph. D. thesis, University of Nijmegen, 1975; M. M. Nagels, Th. A. Rijken and J. J. de Swart, Phys. Rev. D 17 (1978), 768; P. M. M. Maessen, Th. A. Rijken and J. J. de Swart, Phys. Rev. C 40 (1989), 2226; Th. A. Rijken, V. G. J. Stoks and Y. Yamamoto, Phys. Rev. C 59 (1999), 21; V. G. J. Stoks and Th. A. Rijken, Phys. Rev. C 59 (1999), 3009]. All ingredients of these latter models are also part of ESC08, and so a description of ESC08 comprises all models so far in principle. The extended-soft-core (ESC) interactions consist of local- and non-local-potentials due to (i) one-boson-exchanges (OBE), which are the members of nonets of

    We numerically simulate collisions of charged shockwaves in Einstein-Maxwell theory in anti-de Sitter space as a toy model of heavy ion collisions with non-zero baryon charge. The stress tensor and the baryon current become well described by charged hydrodynamics at roughly the same time. The effect of the charge density on generic observables is typically no larger than 15\\%. %The rapidity profile of the charge is wider than the profile of the local energy density. We find significant stopping of the baryon charge and compare our results with those in heavy ion collision experiments.

    We study baryons in an AdS/CFT model of QCD by Sakai and Sugimoto, realized as small instantons with fundamental string hairs. We introduce an effective field theory of the baryons in the five-dimensional setting, and show that the instanton interpretation implies a particular magnetic coupling. Dimensional reduction to four dimensions reproduces the usual chiral effective action, and in particular we estimate the axial coupling $g_A$ between baryons and pions and the magnetic dipole moments, both of which are proportional to $N_c$. We extrapolate to finite $N_c$ and discuss subleading corrections.

The baryon asymmetry in the universe is generated by resonant decays of heavy Kaluza-Klein scalars that are copies of the standard model Higgs. Discrete exchange symmetries between the throats are responsible for establishing two key features of the model. First, they ensure a near degeneracy of the scalar masses and thus a resonant decay of the scalars. This allows for Dirac leptogene...

  12. A spectral representation for baryon to meson and baryon to photon transition distribution amplitudes

    CERN Document Server

    Pire, Bernard; Szymanowski, Lech

    2010-01-01

    We construct a spectral representation for the transition distribution amplitudes (TDAs), i.e. matrix elements of three quark correlators which arise e.g. in the description of baryon to meson and baryon to photon transitions within the factorization approach to hard exclusive reactions. We generalize for these quantities the notion of double distributions introduced in the context of generalized parton distributions. We propose the generalization of A.Radyushkin's factorized Ansatz for the case of baryon to meson and baryon to photon TDAs. Our construction opens the way to modeling of baryon to meson and baryon to photon TDAs in their complete domain of definition and quantitative estimates of cross-sections for various hard exclusive reactions.

  13. New scenarios for hard-core interactions in a hadron resonance gas

    Satarov, L M; Alba, P; Gorenstein, M I; Stoecker, H

    2016-01-01

    The equation of state of a baryon-symmetric hadronic matter with hard-sphere interactions is studied. It is assumed that mesons are point-like, but baryons and antibaryons have the same hard-core radius rB. Three possibilities are considered: 1) the baryon-baryon and antibaryon-baryon interactions are the same; 2) baryons do not interact with antibaryons; 3) the baryon-antibaryon and meson-(anti)baryon interactions are negligible. By choosing the parameter rB=0.3-0.6 fm, we calculate the nucleon to pion ratio as a function of temperature and perform the fit of hadron yields measured in central Pb+Pb collisions at the bombarding energy Ecm=2.76 TeV per nucleon pair. New nontrivial effects in the interacting hadron resonance gas at temperatures 150-200 MeV are found.

More work is needed both experimentally and theoretically to understand if the Standard Model description of these rare FCNC processes is correct.

    The LHCb experiment covers a unique kinematic range at the LHC. With its excellent vertex resolution and particle identification it has very good capabilities for heavy quark production measurements. In this contribution we report on open charm production in inelastic pp collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV. Cross-sections have been determined for D{sup 0}/D{sup 0}, D{sup *{+-}}, D{sup {+-}}, and D{sub s}{sup {+-}} in bins of transverse momentum and rapidity in the region 0

    The production of $J/\\psi$ mesons accompanied by open charm, and of pairs of open charm hadrons are observed in pp collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV using an integrated luminosity of $355pb^{-1}$ collected with the LHCb detector. Model independent measurements of absolute cross-sections are given together with ratios to the measured $J/\\psi$ and open charm cross-sections. The properties of these events are studied and compared to theoretical predictions.

  18. Neutron-antineutron Oscillation and Baryonic Majoron: Low Scale Spontaneous Baryon Violation

    We discuss a possibility that baryon number $B$ is spontaneously broken at low scales, of the order of MeV or even smaller, so that the neutron-antineutron oscillation can be induced at the experimentally accessible level. An associated Goldstone particle, baryonic majoron, can have observable effects in neutron to antineutron transitions in nuclei or dense nuclear matter. By extending baryon number to $B-L$ symmetry, baryo-majoron can be identified with the ordinary majoron associated with t...

  19. Masses and magnetic moments of ground-state baryons in covariant baryon chiral perturbation theory

    We report on some recent developments in our understanding of the light-quark mass dependence and the SU(3) flavor symmetry breaking corrections to the magnetic moments of the ground-state baryons in a covariant formulation of baryon chiral perturbation theory, the so-called EOMS formulation. We show that this covariant ChPT exhibits some promising features compared to its heavy-baryon and infrared counterparts.

  20. A Program for Baryon Generation and Its Applications to Baryon Fragmentation in DIS

    In an earlier paper, we discuss the ``popcorn'' model for baryon production in quark and gluon jets, and present an improved model (which we call Modified Popcorn Scenarium, MOPS). In this paper we give a manual to the MC program based on MOPS, and also discuss the application of the model to baryon fragmentation, i.e. fragmentation of strings originally contaning a diquark. Model predictions for baryon production in DIS are compared with data.
