    The dynamical coupled channel approach of Matsuyama, Sato, and Lee is used to study the $\\omega$--meson production induced by pions and photons scattering from the proton. The parameters of the model are fixed in a two-channel (\\omega N,\\pi N) calculation for the non-resonant and resonant contributions to the $T$ matrix by fitting the available unpolarized differential cross section data. The polarized photon beam asymmetry is predicted and compared to existing data.

    The photoproduction of {omega} mesons on LH{sub 2}, C and Nb has been measured for incident photon energies from 900 to 1300MeV using the CB/TAPS detector at ELSA. The {omega} lineshape does not show any significant difference between the LH{sub 2} and the Nb targets. The experiment was motivated by transport calculations that predicted a sensitivity of the {omega} lineshape to in-medium modifications near the production threshold on a free nucleon of E{sub {gamma}}{sup lab}=1109 MeV. A comparison with recent calculations is given. (orig.)

    The TOF spectrometer is an external experiment fed by the proton accelerator COSY, which is located at the Forschungszentrum Juelich, Germany. While this detector does not utilize a magnetic field for particle identification, it, however, stands out for its high acceptance (approx. 2π in the laboratory frame) and versatility. TOF measures the velocity-vectors of all charged particles, which then are used to completely reconstruct the event pattern. Due to the modular design of the TOF detector, its components can be assembled to ideally match different experimental requirements. This makes it a multipurpose device, which has shown results for many hadronic channels, starting from the pion threshold up to excess energies as high as 1GeV. One of the experimental programs is dedicated to the ω meson production. In proton-proton interactions, this channel has remained largely unstudied until the late 1990s. Then, first experimental data in the direct vicinity of the threshold and at an excess energy of ε=320 MeV became available. We have published data on ω production for two (intermediate) excess energies of ε=93 MeV and ε=173 MeV. In parallel, a considerable interest on the part of theory arose, since the reaction dynamics of ω-meson production in nucleon-nucleon collisions has an impact on many fields of modern physics. For example, there is an ongoing discussion whether 'missing resonances' may (help to) explain the phenomena observed in dense matter. These resonances would couple to the pω, but not to the pπ channel. Although predicted by many authors, until now no pω resonance was found experimentally; the strangeness content of the nucleon is still an open question. One possible key to an answer is the ratio of the total cross sections of ω to φ - mesons, which experimentally is about a factor of seven larger than simple SU predictions (often referred to as 'violation of the OZI-rule'). However, this comparison is only valid assuming similar

    The inclusive production of the omega(782) vector meson in hadronic Z decays is measured and compared to model predictions. The analysis is based on 4 million hadronic Z decays recorded by the ALEPH detector between 1991 and 1995. The production rate for x_p = p_meson/p_beam > 0.05 is measured in the omega -> pi^+ pi^- pi^0 decay mode and found to be 0.585 +- 0.019_stat +- 0.033_sys per event. Inclusive eta meson production is also measured in the same decay channel for x_p > 0.10, obtaining 0.355 +- 0.011_stat +- 0.024_sys per event. The branching ratio for omega -> mu^+ mu^- is investigated. A total of 18.1 +- 5.9 events are observed, from which the muonic branching ratio is measured for the first time to be BR(omega -> mu^+ mu^-) = (9.0 +- 2.9_stat +- 1.1_sys)*10^-5.

    Properties of the omega meson were studied from the reaction K/sup -/ + p yields LAMBDA + omega in a 72-in. hydrogen bubble chamber. The momentum of the K/sup -/ mesons was 1.2 to 1.75 Bev/c. The mass of the omega meson is found to be 782 Mev with a width, predominated by three-meson( pi ) decay mode, estimated to be less than 4 Mev. Branching ratios for omega -meson decay into pi /sup +/ pi /sup -/ pi /sup o/, pi /sup o/ gamma , pi /sup +/ i/ sup -/, and e/sup +/e/sup -o/ were determined. (R.E.U.)

    The inclusive production of the omega(782) vector meson in hadronic Z decays is studied and compared to model predictions. The analysis is based on 1,005,535 hadronic Z decays recorded by the ALEPH detector in the 1992 and 1993 running periods of LEP. Decays of the omega -> pi^+ pi^- pi^0 are reconstructed for x_p > 0.05, where x_p = p/p_{beam}. For this momentum range the omega production rate is measured to be 0.633 +- 0.025(stat) +- 0.056(sys) per event. An extrapolation to x_p = 0 yields a total production rate of 1.061 +- 0.041(stat) +- 0.093(sys) +- 0.042(extrap) per event.

    The study of meson production in proton-proton collisions in the energy range up to one GeV above the production threshold provides valuable information about the nature of the nucleon-nucleon interaction. Theoretical models describe the interaction between nucleons via the exchange of mesons. In such models, different mechanisms contribute to the production of the mesons in nucleon-nucleon collisions. The measurement of total and differential production cross sections provide information which can help in determining the magnitude of the various mechanisms. Moreover, such cross section information serves as an input to the transport calculations which describe e.g. the production of e{sup +}e{sup -} pairs in proton- and pion-induced reactions as well as in heavy ion collisions. In this thesis, the production of {omega} and {eta} mesons in proton-proton collisions at 3.5 GeV beam energy was studied using the High Acceptance DiElectron Spectrometer (HADES) installed at the Schwerionensynchrotron (SIS 18) at the Helmholtzzentrum fuer Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt. About 80 000 {omega} mesons and 35 000 {eta} mesons were reconstructed. Total production cross sections of both mesons were determined. Furthermore, the collected statistics allowed for extracting angular distributions of both mesons as well as performing Dalitz plot studies. The {omega} and {eta} mesons were reconstructed via their decay into three pions ({pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup 0}) in the exclusive reaction pp {yields} pp{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup 0}. The charged particles were identified via their characteristic energy loss, via the measurement of their time of flight and momentum, or using kinematics. The neutral pion was reconstructed using the missing mass method. A kinematic fit was applied to improve the resolution and to select events in which a {pi}{sup 0} was produced. The correction of measured yields for the effects of spectrometer acceptance was done as a function of four

    Rare charmless hadronic B decays are particularly interesting because of their importance in understanding the CP violation, which is essential to explain the matter-antimatter asymmetry in our universe, and of their roles in testing the ''effective'' theory of B physics. The study has been done with the BABAR experiment, which is mainly designed for the study of CP violation in the decays of neutral B mesons, and secondarily for rare processes that become accessible with the high luminosity of the PEP-II B Factory. In a sample of 89 million produced B{bar B} pairs on the BABAR experiment, we observed the decays B{sup 0} {yields} {omega}K{sup 0} and B{sup +} {yields} {omega}{rho}{sup +} for the first time, made more precise measurements for B{sup +} {yields} {omega}h{sup +} and reported tighter upper limits for B {yields} {omega}K* and B{sup 0} {yields} {omega}{rho}{sup 0}.

    The inclusive cross section for !(783) meson production by 515 GeV/c $\\pi^{-}$ beam incident on Be and Cu targets has been measured as a function of transverse momentum (pT ). The data were collected during the 1990 run of experiment E706 at Fermilab. The E706 trigger selected events containing high pT electromagnetic showers detected in a nely segmented lead liquid argon calorimeter. The ! mesons were reconstructed in the neutral decay mode $\\omega \\to \\pi^{0}\\gamma$. Results are reported averaged over the center of mass rapidity interval -0.5 < y < 0.75, and in the transverse momentum range from 3.5 to 8 GeV/c. The $\\gamma$ to $\\pi^0$ production ratio was measured and used to obtain the ratio of vector to pseudoscalar mesons directly produced in the fragmentation process. Measurements are compared with HERWIG 5.7 Monte Carlo results, and with data from other experiments. The nuclear dependence of ! meson production is also discussed

    The NA50 experiment is one of the experiment using the SPS (Super Proton Synchrotron) beam at CERN (european laboratory for particle physics). One of the common aim of the SPS experiment is to look for the existence of a new state of the nuclear matter: the quark-gluon plasma. Among the proposed signatures of the quark-gluon plasma is the enhanced production of particles containing strange quarks. In the current work, the NA50/NA38 experiment data are analysed and the relative production of the {phi} and {rho} + {omega} mesons are obtained from Pb-Pb collisions at 158 and S-U at 200 GeV per nucleon. The measured ({phi}/({rho} +{omega})){mu}{mu} ratio as a function of the transverse mass does not present any unexpected behavior, however, central collisions as compared to peripheral collisions show an increase by a factor 1.7. The {phi} and {rho}+{omega} multiplicities are extracted for the Pb-Pb collisions and show that the enhancement of the ({phi}/({rho}+{omega})){mu}{mu} ratio is due to the {phi} meson production increase. The evolution of the {phi} meson multiplicity, versus the number of participant nucleus (N{sub part}), is different from that of the multi-strange baryons. The effective temperatures are deduced from the study of the {phi} and {rho} + {omega} production cross sections with respect to the transverse mass and compared to those obtained by other experiments and other particles. An additional study is done to extract the K/{pi} ratio versus N{sub part}. (authors)

Five single-spin and three double-spin azimuthal asymmetries were measured in the range of photon virtuality $1~(\\mathrm{GeV}/\\mathit{c})^2 < Q^2 < 10~(\\mathrm{GeV}/\\mathit{c})^2$, Bjorken scaling variable $0.003 < x_{\\mathit{Bj}} < 0.3$ and transverse momentum squared of the $\\omega$ meson $0.05~(\\mathrm{GeV}/\\mathit{c})^2 < p_{T}^{2} < 0.5~(\\mathrm{GeV}/\\mathit{c})^2$. The measured asymmetries are sensitive to the nucleon helicity-flip Generalised Parton Distributions (GPD) $E$ that are related to the orbital angular momentum of quarks, the chiral-odd GPDs $H_{T}$ that are related to the transversity Parton Distribution Functions, and the sign of the $\\pi\\omega$ transition form factor. The results are compared to recent calculations of a GPD-based model.

  14. Exclusive Backward-Angle Omega Meson Electroproduction

    Exclusive meson electroproduction at different squared four-momenta of the exchanged virtual photon, Q2 , and at different four-momentum transfers, t and u, can be used to probe QCD's transition from hadronic degrees of freedom at the long distance scale to quark-gluon degrees of freedom at the short distance scale. Backward-angle meson electroproduction was previously ignored, but is anticipated to offer complimentary information to conventional forward-angle meson electroproduction studies on nucleon structure. This work is a pioneering study of backward-angle ω cross sections through the exclusive 1H(e, e'p)ω reaction using the missing mass reconstruction technique. The extracted cross sections are separated into the transverse (T), longitudinal (L), and LT, TT interference terms. The analyzed data were part of experiment E01-004 (Fπ-2), which used 2.6-5.2 GeV electron beams and HMS+SOS spectrometers in Jefferson Lab Hall C. The primary objective was to detect coincidence π in the forward-angle, where the backward-angle omega events were fortuitously detected. The experiment has central Q2 values of 1.60 and 2.45 GeV2 , at W = 2.21 GeV. There was significant coverage in phi and epsilon, which allowed separation of σT,L,LT,TT . The data set has a unique u coverage of -u ~ 0, which corresponds to -t > 4 GeV2 . The separated σT result suggest a flat ~ 1/Q1.33±1.21 dependence, whereas sigma_L seems to hold a stronger 1/Q9.43±6.28 dependence. The σL/σT ratio indicate σT dominance at Q2 = 2.45 GeV2 at the ~90% confidence level. After translating the results into the -t space of the published CLAS data, our data show evidence of a backward-angle omega electroproduction peak at both Q2 settings. Previously, this phenomenon showing both forward and backward-angle peaks was only observed in the meson

    The production of rho omega and phi vector-mesons, detected through their mumu decay channel, is studied in p-W, S-S, S-Cu and S-U reactions at 200 GeV/c per nucleon incident momentum. Their inclusive cross-sections are determined in various transverse momentum intervals and their dependence on the projectile and target mass numbers is investigated. The relative yield B/sub mumu/sigma/sub phi //(B/sub mumu/sigmaas a function of the transverse momentum, p/sub T /, and of the collision centrality. While this ratio exhibits no significant dependence with p/sub T/, it clearly increases with the centrality of the collision. Effective temperatures deduced from the transverse mass spectra, dsigma/dM/sub T/, lead to values of Trho +omega equal or slightly higher than T/sub phi/. Both these effective temperatures smoothly increase from p-W to S-U reactions.

    We present the results of searches for B decays to charmless two-body final states containing eta(') or omega mesons, based on 20.7 fb(-1) of data collected with the BABAR detector. We find the branching fractions Beta(B(+)-->eta(')K(+)) = (70+/-8+/-5) x 10(-6), Beta(B(0)-->eta(')K(0)) = (42(+13)(-11) +/- 4) x 10(-6), and Beta(B(+)-->omega pi(+)) = (6.6(+2.1)(-1.8) +/- 0.7) x 10(-6), where the first error quoted is statistical and the second is systematic. We give measurements of four additional modes for which the 90% confidence level upper limits are Beta(B(+)-->eta(')pi(+)) omega K(+)) omega K(0)) omega pi(0)) < 3 x 10(-6).

  2. A search for non-$q\\bar{q}$ mesons at the CERN Omega Spectrometer

    CERN Document Server

    1999-01-01

    The non-Abelian nature of QCD suggests that particles that have a gluon constituent, such as glueballs or hybrids, should exist. Experiments WA76, WA91 and WA102 have performed a dedicated search for these states in central production using the CERN Omega Spectrometer. Several non-qqbar candidates have been observed. This paper presents a study of central meson production as a function of the difference in transverse momentum (dPT) of the exchanged particles which shows that undisputed qqbar mesons are suppressed at small dPT whereas the glueball candidates are enhanced.

    The modifications of hadronic properties caused by an ambient nuclear medium are investigated within the scope of QCD sum rules. This is exemplified for the cases of the {omega} meson, the nucleon and the D meson. By virtue of the sum rules, integrated spectral densities of these hadrons are linked to properties of the QCD ground state, quantified in condensates. For the cases of the {omega} meson and the nucleon it is discussed how the sum rules allow a restriction of the parameter range of poorly known four-quark condensates by a comparison of experimental and theoretical knowledge. The catalog of independent four-quark condensates is covered and relations among these condensates are revealed. The behavior of four-quark condensates under the chiral symmetry group and the relation to order parameters of spontaneous chiral symmetry breaking are outlined. In this respect, also the QCD condensates appearing in differences of sum rules of chiral partners are investigated. Finally, the effects of an ambient nuclear medium on the D meson are discussed and relevant condensates are identified. (orig.)

    1994-01-01

    By means of the thermofield dynamical theory, the effective mass of omega meson is calculated by summing the bubble diagrams. It is found that the formula for the effective mass of the ρ meson can also be used to describe the ω meson in the low density region, but the parameter n and the critical temperature T c depend on the density. The temperature and density dependence of one omega exchage potential of nucleon-nucleon interaction are given. The conjecture of Brown and Rho about the effective masses of mesons is discussed

  6. Charmed meson production at LHCb

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Müller, Dominik

    2016-01-01

    Measurements of charm meson production are important tests for QCD predictions and LHCb is uniquely suited to perform these measurements in the forward region. This paper summarises recent charm meson production measurements performed by LHCb of J/ψ and open charm mesons and the associated production of ϒ and open charm mesons. The J/ψ and open charm meson measurements are performed with data recorded in Run 2 of the Large Hadron Collider. With proton-proton collisions at √s = 13 TeV, these open a new regime in which QCD predictions for charm meson production may be precisely tested. Furthermore, ratios of cross-sections at different centre-of-mass energies benefit of cancellation of both experimental and theoretical uncertainties, providing a new sensitive test of the QCD calculations. Measurements of ϒ and open charm meson associated production are performed using √s = 7 TeV and √s = 8 TeV data and constitute the first observation of this production channel.

    We explore the feasibility to study exclusive meson production (EMP) in hard muon-proton scattering at the COMPASS experiment. These measurements constrain the off-forward parton distributions (OFPD's) of the proton, which are related to the quark orbital contribution to the proton spin.

    The production of $\\omega(782)$meson has been measured at mid-rapidity in pp collisions at $\\sqrt{s}$ = 7 TeV with the ALICE detector at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The particles are reconstructed in the $\\omega\\rightarrow\\pi^{0}\\pi^{+}\\pi^{-}$ decay channel. A data sample with an integrated luminosity of 6 nb$^{-1}$ has been used to measure the invariant differential cross section of the $\\omega$ meson and the $p_{T}$-differential $\\omega /\\pi^{0}$ ratio in the transverse momentum range $2<$p_{T}$<17$ GeV/$c$. The measured cross section and the $\\omega /\\pi^{0}$ ratio are found to be in agreement with predictions of PYTHIA and PHOJET events generators. Furthermore, the $\\omega /\\pi^{0}$ ratio is consistent with previous measurements by other experiments at lower energies within uncertainties.

  12. Deeply virtual and exclusive electroproduction of omega mesons

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Morand, L.

    2005-01-01

    The exclusive omega electroproduction off the proton was studied in a large kinematical domain above the nucleon resonance region and for the highest possible photon virtuality (Q 2 ) with the 5.75 GeV beam at CEBAF and the CLAS spectrometer. Cross sections were measured up to large values of the four-momentum transfer (-t 2 ) to the proton. The contributions of the interference terms sigma TT and sigma TL to the cross sections, as well as an analysis of the omega spin density matrix, indicate that helicity is not conserved in this process. The t-channel pi 0 exchange, or more generally the exchange of the associated Regge trajectory, seems to dominate the reaction γ* p → omega p, even for Q 2 as large as 5 GeV 2 . Contributions of handbag diagrams, related to Generalized Parton Distributions in the nucleon, are therefore difficult to extract for this process. Remarkably, the high-t behavior of the cross sections is nearly Q 2 -independent, which may be interpreted as a coupling of the photon to a point-like object in this kinematical limit

    The exclusive omega electroproduction off the proton was studied in a large kinematical domain above the nucleon resonance region and for the highest possible photon virtuality (Q{sup 2}) with the 5.75 GeV beam at CEBAF and the CLAS spectrometer. Cross sections were measured up to large values of the four-momentum transfer (-t < 2.7 GeV{sup 2}) to the proton. The contributions of the interference terms sigma{sub TT} and sigma{sub TL} to the cross sections, as well as an analysis of the omega spin density matrix, indicate that helicity is not conserved in this process.

    We present a study of the inclusive $\\omega$ and $\\eta^{\\prime}$ production based on 3.1 million hadronic Z decays recorded with the L3 detector at LEP during 1991--1994. The production rates per hadronic Z decay have been measured to be $1.17 \\pm 0.17 $ $\\omega$ mesons and $0.25 \\pm 0.04 $ $\\eta^{\\prime}$ mesons. The production rates and the differential cross sections have been compared with predictions of the JETSET and the HERWIG Monte Carlo models. We have observed that the differential cross sections can be described by an analytical quantum chromodynamics calculation. \\end{document}

    The photoproduction of omega mesons on the proton ({gamma}p {yields} {omega}p) directly at the production threshold was investigated during the first phase of the CB-ELSA experiment in Bonn. In experiments directly at the threshold the protons are strongly focussed in forward direction due to kinematic reasons. Therefore the forward detector, a large area time of flight detector, plays a prominent role and there is a detailed description of the reconstruction and measuring capabilities of this spectrometer.

    The helicity density matrix elements rho[00] of rho(770)+- and omega(782) mesons produced in Z decays have been measured using the OPAL detector at LEP. Over the measured meson energy range, the values are compatible with 1/3, corresponding to a statistical mix of helicity -1, 0 and +1 states. For the highest accessible scaled energy range 0.3 < x_E < 0.6, the measured rho[00] values of the rho(770)+- and the omega are 0.373 +- 0.052 and 0.142 +- 0.114, respectively. These results are compared to measurements of other vector mesons.

    In the present work exclusive φ meson leptoproduction at HERMES experiment in DESY was studied using the data collected at HERA accelerator in the period from 1998 till 2000 and from 2006 till 2007 years. In the analysis unpolarized and longitudinally polarized hydrogen and deuteron targets were used, the beam consisted of longitudinally polarized leptons. Via measurement of the angular and momentum distribution of the φ meson decay products 23 spin density matrix elements (SDMEs) for the φ meson were obtained. The number of SDMEs was defined by the experiment conditions, e.g. by the beam and target polarization directions. For the mentioned time period φ meson SDMEs were defined at HERMES for the first time. The quantities U 1 , U 2 and U 3 which can be used to check presence of unnatural parity exchange (UPE) mechanism in phi meson production were calculated from SDMEs. All the results were obtained in 3 kinematic bins of Q 2 , 4 kinematic bins of t' and for the integrated kinematics. No statistically significant difference between the results for hydrogen and deuteron targets was observed. The UPE quantities were found to be zero within 2 σ for the integrated kinematics, indicating negligible contribution of UPE for the φ meson production which is in agreement with theory predictions. The test of s-channel helicity conservation hypothesis via comparison of corresponding SDME values showed helicity conservation for the φ meson production.

    Hard exclusive electroproduction of $\\omega$ mesons is studied with the HERMES spectrometer at the DESY laboratory by scattering 27.6 GeV positron and electron beams off a transversely polarized hydrogen target. The amplitudes of five azimuthal modulations of the single-spin asymmetry of the cross section with respect to the transverse proton polarization are measured. They are determined in the entire kinematic region as well as for two bins in photon virtuality and momentum transfer to the nucleon. Also, a separation of asymmetry amplitudes into longitudinal and transverse components is done. These results are compared to a phenomenological model that includes the pion pole contribution. Within this model, the data favor a positive $\\pi\\omega$ transition form factor.

    Electroproduction of the omega meson was investigated in the p(e,e'p)omega reaction. The measurement was performed at a 4-momentum transfer Q2 ∼ 0.5 GeV2. Angular distributions of the virtual photon-proton center-of-momentum cross sections have been extracted over the full angular range. These distributions exhibit a strong enhancement over t-channel parity exchange processes in the backward direction. According to a newly developed electroproduction model, this enhancement provides significant evidence of resonance formation in the gamma* p -> omega p reaction channel

The data were recorded with the BABAR detector and correspond to 88.9 x 10 6 B(bar B) pairs produced in e + e - annihilation at the Υ(4S) resonance. They find statistically significant signals for all three channels: Β(B + → ωπ + ) = (5.4 ± 1.0 ± 0.5) x 10 -6 , Β(B + → ωK + ) = (5.0 ± 1.0 ± 0.4) x 10 -6 , and Β(B 0 → ωK 0 ) = (5.3 -1.2 +1.4 ± 0.5) x 10 -6 . They also measure time-integrated charge asymmetries Α ch (B + → ωπ + ) = 0.04 ± 0.17 ± 0.01 and Α ch (B + → ωK + ) = -0.05 ± 0.16 ± 0.01

    The purpose of the ALICE experiment at the LHC is the study of the Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP) formed in ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions, a state of matter in which quarks and gluons are deconfined. The properties of this state of strongly-interacting matter can be accessed through the study of light vector mesons ($\\rho$, $\\omega$ and $\\phi$). Indeed, the strange quark content ($s\\bar{s}$) of the $\\phi$ meson makes its study interesting in connection with the strangeness enhancement observed in heavy-ion collisions. Moreover, $\\rho$ and $\\omega$ spectral function studies give information on chiral symmetry restoration. Vector meson production in pp collisions is important as a baseline for heavy-ion studies and for constraining hadronic models. We present results on light vector meson production obtained with the muon spectrometer of the ALICE experiment in pp collisions at $\\sqrt{s}$=7 TeV. Production ratios, integrated and differential cross sections for $\\phi$ and $\\omega$ are presented. Those result...

    It is shown that J/PSI production in hadronic interactions is dominated by central production from sea quarks even at beam momenta as low as 40 GeV/c. All known experimental data on inclusive vector meson production support the hypothesis that cross sections obtained from meson-nucleon and nucleon-nucleon interactions have to be compared in the quark C.M. system. With the distinction of sea quark and valence quark interactions in the additive quark model a consistent description of inclusive rho, K*, PHI and J/PSI production in hadronic interactions. A natural connection of inclusive rho 0 production cross sections in anti pp, pp and πp interactions is obtained. (orig.) [de

    In a joint experiment the TAPS and CERES collaborations have studied the production of the neutral mesons $\\pi^{0}$, $\\eta$ and $\\omega$ in 450 GeV $p$-Be and $p$-Au collisions at the CERN SPS. The mesons were identified by their $\\pi^{0} \\rightarrow \\gamma\\gamma, \\eta \\rightarrow \\gamma\\gamma$, and $\\omega \\rightarrow \\pi^{0}\\gamma$ decay modes. The cross sections were measured down to very low $p_{T}$ ($\\geq$ 20 MeV/c) near mid-rapidity $(3.0omega$ cross sections are smaller than expected from extrapolations of earlier data to low $p_{T}$. Integrated over all $p_{T}$, the ratios $\\eta/\\pi^{0}$ and $\\omega/\\pi^{0}$ are lower by about 25% compared to previously published values. The reduction may be attributed to the large number of low $p_{T}$ pions from decays of heavier mesons. In addition, we have studied the dependence of neutral meson production on the mass of the nuclear target and find it in good agreement with previous measurements of charged mesons.

    Full Text Available Exclusive ω meson production is studied by the COMPASS Collaboration using the CERN 160 GeV/c muon beam and a transversely polarised proton target. Single-spin and double-spin asymmetries are measured, some of which are sensitive to the Generalised Parton Distributions E that are related to quark orbital angular momenta. The results, which are sensitive also to the pion-pole contribution to the production mechanism, are compared to the predictions of a phenomenological model.

    Incani, Elisa; Usai, Gianluca

    Low-mass vector mesons ($\\rho$, $\\omega$ and $\\phi$) give us information on the hot and dense state of strongly interacting matter produced in heavy ion collisions. In fact, in the QGP an enhancement of the strange particle production should be present (strangeness enhancement), which means a N$\\phi$ /N$\\rho+\\omega$ ratio increasing in A-A collisions with respect to pp collisions; pp collisions provide a reference for these studies. Vector meson production in pp collisions is also useful by itself, to study soft Quantum ChromoDynamics (QCD) in the LHC energy range, since calculations in this regime are based on QCD inspired phenomenological models that must be tuned to the data. The ALICE experiment at the LHC can access vector mesons produced at forward rapidity through their decays in muon pairs. We will show the ratio $N\\phi$ /N$\\rho+\\omega$ vs pT, the ratios $\\sigma_\\rho/\\sigma_\\omega$ and $\\sigma_\\phi/\\sigma_\\omega$, and the $\\phi$ and $\\omega$ pT and rapidity differential cross sections for the data sam...

    This image is of real particle tracks taken from the CERN 2 m liquid hydrogen bubble chamber and shows the production and decay of a negative omega particle. A negative kaon enters the chamber which decays into many particles, including a negative omega that travels a short distance before decaying into more particles. The invention of bubble chambers in 1952 revolutionized the field of particle physics, allowing real tracks left by particles to be seen and photographed by expanding liquid that had been heated to boiling point.

The data derive from the experiment E769 - Hadroproductlon of Charm at Fermilab. The experimental apparatus is described together with the following analysis. Starting from a sample of -1500 D mesons in the range of $O< x_{f} <1$, the data are found to be well described by the parameterization $\\sigma_{A}$ = $\\sigma_{O}$ , with $\\alpha = 0.99 \\pm 0.03$.

  16. Studies on inclusive meson resonance and particle production

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Saarikko, Heimo

    1978-01-01

    Production and decay of meson resonances are studied in medium energy meson-proton collisions. Strong evidence is found that hadronic collisions are dominated by resonance production. Especially the vector mesons have often large inclusive cross sections, typically of the order of few millibarns at the present energies. In all, a majority of pions and kaons appear to be decay products of resonances or other unstable particles. The detailed kinematics of the parent resonance's decays is found to play an important role in determining inclusive pion spectra. The squared transverse momentum distributions of hadrons heavier than the pion appear to have in common an exponential behaviour, with a universal slope for the esponential fall-off. The observed vector meson yields suggest that only a small fraction of the direct lepton production observed at large transverse momentum in nucleon-nucleon interactions is accounted for by the ''old'' vector mesons. An attempt has been made to separate out the central production and fragmentation components of the meson production. Both the central production and the fragmentation of the incoming meson are found to be important mechanisms in the non-strange meson production whereas the central production of strange meson resonances is rare at our energies. The ratios of the observed meson yields are found to be generally in good agreement with a simple quark-counting model. (author)

  18. Test of OZI violation in vector meson production with COMPASS

    Bernhard, Johannes

    2011-01-01

    The COMPASS experiment at CERN SPS completed its data taking with hadron beams ($p,\\pi, K$) in the years 2008 and 2009 by collecting a large set of data using different targets (H$_{2}$, Pb, Ni, W). These data are dedicated to hadron spectroscopy, where the focus is directed to the search for exotic bound states of quarks and gluons (hybrids, glueballs). The production of such states is known to be favoured in glue-rich environments, e.g. so-called OZI-forbidden processes. The OZI rule postulates that processes with disconnected quark line diagrams are forbidden. On the one hand, the study of the degree of OZI violation in vector meson production yields the possibilty to learn more about the involved production mechanisms. On the other hand it helps to understand the nucleon's structure itself. Contrary to former experiments, the large data sample allows for detailed studies in respect to Feynman's variable $x_{F}$. We present results from the ongoing analysis on the comparison of $\\omega$ and $\\phi$ vector m...

    The production of charmed mesonsmathop {D^0 }limits^{( - )} , D ± , and D *± is studied in a sample of 478,000 hadronic Z decays. The production rates are measured to be 10052_2005_Article_BF01559519_TeX2GIFE1.gif begin{gathered} {Γ (Z to D^{* ± } X)}/{Γ _{had }} = 0.187 ± 0.015(exp .) ± 0.013(BR), \\ {Γ (Z to D^ ± X)}/{Γ _{had }} = 0.251 ± 0.026(exp .) ± 0.025(BR), \\ {Γ (Z to mathop {D^0 }limits^{( - )} X)}/{Γ _{had }} = 0.518 ± 0.052(exp .) ± 0.035(BR), \\ where the errors from this analysis are separated from those coming from the D branching ratios (BR). The D *± momentum distribution is extracted separately forZ to cbar c andZ to bbar b events with the help of event shape variables. It is consistent with the prediction of the JETSET Monte Carlo program after adjustment of the charm fragmentation function. Constraining the shape of theZ to bbar b contribution, the average fraction of the beam energy taken by a D * meson produced in the fragmentation of a charm quark is extracted by a parametric fit to be c =0.495±0.011±0.007. Evidence for D **0 ( D 1(2420)0 and/or D {2/*}(2460)0) production is found in theD^{* ± } π ^ mp channel, accounting for a fraction (18±5±2)% of all D *± production. The relative production of vector and pseudoscalar mesons is dicussed, together with the possible effects of D ** production. The c-quark forward-backward Z-pole asymmetry is detrmined from that of high momentum D *± to be A {/FB 0,c }=(7.7±4.4)%.

  20. Production of φ-Mesons in anti NN-Annihilation

    Recent results from the experiments on the φ-meson production in the annihilation of stopped antiprotons have demonstrated a significant (by a factor of 30-50) violation of the OZI rule. Experimental information on the φ-meson production is discussed and possible theoretical explanations of the strong OZI rule violation are reviewed. 37 refs., 4 figs., 2 tabs

  1. Meson Form Factors and Deep Exclusive Meson Production Experiments

    Pion and kaon electroproduction data play a unique role in Nature and our understanding of them is essential for explaining hadron structure. Precision longitudinaltransverse separated pion and kaon cross sections are of particular interest. They allow for the extraction of meson form factors and validation of understanding of hard exclusive and semi-inclusive reactions (π+, K+, π0, γ) towards 3D hadron imaging and potential future flavor decomposition. We review recent data and present prospects for deep exclusive pion and kaon electroproduction at the 12 GeV Jefferson Lab including the prospects to use projected charged- and neutral pion data to further determine the spin, charge-parity and flavor of GPDs, including the helicity-flip GPDs.

    The concept of Generalized Parton Distributions (GPDs) combines the two-dimensional spatial information, given by form factors, with the longitudinal momentum information from the PDFs. Thus, GPDs provide a three-dimensional 'tomography' of the nucleon. Furthermore, according to Ji's sum rule, the GPDs H and E enable access to the total angular momenta of quarks, antiquarks and gluons. While H can be approached using electroproduction cross section, hard exclusive meson production off a transversely polarized target can help to constrain the GPD E. At the COMPASS experiment at CERN, two periods of data taking were performed in 2007 and 2010, using a longitudinally polarized 160 GeV/c muon beam and a transversely polarized NH{sub 3} target. This talk introduces the data analysis of the process μ + p → μ' + p' + V, and recent results are presented.

    2002-01-01

    In Fermilab experiment E835 a search has been performed for two w(782) vector meson decays of charmonium produced via $p\\bar{p}$ annihilation. All states with even charge conjugation quantum number are theoretically accessible via $ww$. No charmonium signals were clearly visible. The large nonresonant continuum from fjp annihilation to ww was observed to be predominantly pseudoscalar. 903 upper limit confidence intervals were calculated for $B(\\eta_c \\to $ww$)$ assuming various phase shifts, $\\delta$, between the resonant and nonresonant $ww$ production giving a range from 0.543 for $\\delta$ = 180° to 18% for $\\delta$ = 0°. Upper limits on $B(\\bar{p}p \\to \\eta^{\\prime}_c$) x $B(\\eta^{\\prime}_c \\to ww$) are also given over a range of assumed masses and widths for the $\\eta^{\\prime}_c$.

    1986-01-01

    Inclusive φ meson production has been measured for 100 GeV/c and 200 GeV/c incident π - , anti p and K - , and for 120 GeV/c and 200 GeV/c incident π + , p and K + , using a Be target. A total of 630,000 φ mesons has been recorded in the kinematic range 0 F F and dσ/dp T 2 . The longitudinal momentum distributions show that the strange valence quarks of the incident K mesons play an important role in φ meson production, even at small x F . The decay angular distribution of the φ meson is evaluated in the Gottfried-Jackson frame and is expressed in the elements of the density matrix. There is a small but significant cos 2 θ GJ dependence for small p T , which decreases for increasing p T . (Auth.)

    The production probability of π-mesonic atom in high-energy nuclear collisions is estimated by a coalescence model. The production cross section is calculated for p + Ne and Ne + Ne systems at 2.1 GeV/A and 5.0 GeV/A beam energy. It is shown that nuclear fragments with larger charge numbers have the advantage in the formation of π-mesonic atoms. The cross section is proportional to Z 3 and of the order of magnitude of 1 ∼ 10 μb in all the above cases. The production cross sections of K-mesonic atoms are also estimated. (author)

    1976-01-01

    The production of the phi meson and its decay mode into K + K - was investigated in a π - p → phi n reaction using a double arm effective mass spectrometer. Multiwire proportional chambers were deployed as particle detectors and a magnet provided momentum identification. Total cross sections were measured to be 18.5 +- 6, 24.1 +- 7, 25.1 +- 8.2 and 21.3 +- 7 μb for pion beam momenta of 1.6, 1.7, 1.8, and 2.0 GeV√c respectively and an upper limit of 15 μb was set for the 2.2 GeV/c point. These results coupled with other experiments done at higher energies show a strong energy dependence for this production process. Differential cross sections dsigma/dΩ were measured and cos THETA distributions in the center of mass system were consistent with isotropic production implying a flat differential cross section with respect to t. Although the statistics were quite an improvement on previous data they did not permit a thorough investigation of the decay density matrix elements. However, decay angular distributions in the Gottfried-Jackson frame were also presented

    We have analyzed backward meson production in {pi}{sup +}p reactions at 20 GeV/c, which were measured in the CERN {Omega} spectrometer triggered by a fast proton (p{sub f}), in experiment WA 56. Production via baryon exchange of quasi-two-body final states {Delta}{sup ++}(1232) rho{sup 0}(770), {Delta}{sup ++}(1232) f{sub 2}(1270) and {Delta}{sup ++}(1232) rho{sub 3}{sup 0}(1690) is clearly identified. The density matrix elements of meson resonances and of {Delta}{sup ++}(1232) are analyzed. We have observed also the reactions {pi}{sup +}p->{Delta}{sup ++}(1232){pi}{sup 0} and {pi}{sup +}p->{Delta}{sup ++}(1232){omega} in the p{sub f}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup 0} and p{sub f}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -}{pi}{sup 0} final states.

    Production of charmed mesons in γγ-interactions at PETRA energies has been observed in the TASSO detector. Cross sections for inclusive D *± and D 0 anti D 0 production have been measured. Neutral and charged meson pairs are estimated to be produced with comparable cross sections, and their sum to account for a sizeable function of σ tot (γγ→hadrons) near the canti c threshold.

    We discuss the possibility of the asymmetry in D - /D + production from π - beams, being a direct consequence of the properties of the light quark fragmentation function into heavy mesons. The main features of the asymmetry, as a function of x F , are easily described. An integrated sum rule for the D - , D + multiplicity difference is presented. Predictions for the asymmetry in B meson production are given. (orig.)

    {rho}{sub 0} - {omega} mixing effect on direct CP violation in B decay into vector mesons is one of the main studies of this work. The first part is dedicated to the calculation of the decay amplitudes of the channels B {yields} V{rho}{sup 0}({omega}) which have been represented by a model. We have used the helicity formalism. In such a way branching ratios and asymmetries depending on form factor models and other parameters are predicted. Direct CP violation appears at several levels: in branching ratios, in angular distributions and in differential asymmetry as a function of {rho}{sup 0} - {omega} mass. The dominance of the longitudinal polarization in the studied channels is confirmed by Babar and Belle experimental results. We calculated too the strong phase and the ratio of Penguin to Tree amplitudes for each channel. In a second part, was developed an analysis of the channel B{sup 0} {yields} K{sup *0}{rho}{sup 0}({omega}) in the framework of LHCb experiment. It will start in 2007 and is dedicated to b flavor study and CP violation. The realistic analysis which has been performed shows that this channel is not appropriate to observe {rho}{sup 0} - {omega} mixing effect on asymmetry in LHCb, while the {rho}{sup +}{rho}{sup 0}({omega}) channel, for which we have predicted a branching ratio value confirmed by Babar and Belle, is much more promising.

    Exotic hybrid mesons H, with quantum numbers J{sup PC} = 1{sup -+} may be copiously produced in the hard exclusive processes {gamma}{sup *}(Q{sup 2}){gamma} {yields} H and {gamma}{sup *}(Q{sup 2})P(p) {yields} HP(p') because they have a leading twist distribution amplitude with a sizable coupling constant f{sub H}, which may be estimated through QCD sum rules.

    Garcon, M.; Morand, L.; Dore, D.; Laget, J.-M.; Morrow, S.; Sabatie, F.

    2005-01-01

    Exclusive ω electroproduction off the proton was measured at the highest possible four-momentum transfer with the (close to) 6 GeV beam now available at CEBAF. Cross sections are presented, together with an analysis of the ω spin density matrix elements. Indications are that π 0 exchange in the t-channel (or rather the exchange of the corresponding saturating Regge trajectory) seems to dominate the process γ*p → ωp, even for photon virtuality Q 2 as large as 5 GeV 2 . Contributions of the handbag type, related to Generalized Parton Distributions in the nucleon, are therefore difficult to extract from this particular process

  16. Production of polarized vector mesons off nuclei

    Kopeliovich, B. Z.; Nemchik, J.; Schmidt, Ivan

    2007-01-01

    Using the light-cone QCD dipole formalism we investigate manifestations of color transparency (CT) and coherence length (CL) effects in electroproduction of longitudinally (L) and transversally (T) polarized vector mesons. Motivated by forthcoming data from the HERMES experiment we predict both the A and Q 2 dependence of the L/T ratios for ρ 0 mesons produced coherently and incoherently off nuclei. For an incoherent reaction the CT and CL effects add up and result in a monotonic A dependence of the L/T ratio at different values of Q 2 . In contrast, for a coherent process the contraction of the CL with Q 2 causes an effect opposite to that of CT and we expect quite a nontrivial A dependence

    The exclusive photoproduction of {Upsilon} has been studied with the ZEUS detector in ep collisions at HERA. The exponential slope, b, of the |t|-dependence of the cross section, where t is the squared four-momentum transfer at the proton vertex, has been measured. This constitutes the first measurement of the |t|-dependence of the {gamma}p{yields}{Upsilon}p cross section. The differential crosssections as a function of t at lower energies of {gamma}p centre-of-mass has been studied in exclusive diffractive photoproduction of J/{psi} mesons with the H1 detector. The exclusive electroproduction of two pions has been measured by the ZEUS experiment. The two-pion invariant-mass distribution is interpreted in terms of the pion electromagnetic form factor, assuming that the studied mass range includes the contributions of the {rho}, {rho} Prime and . {rho}'' vector-meson states.

    The P/V ratio of directly produced pseudoscalar (P) to vector (V) mesons is analysed using the data on the K S 0 and K * (892) total inclusive cross sections in pp, π + p and K ± p reactions. The indication for a change of P/V from a value of about 1 at low energies, where the fragmentation processes dominate, to a value of 1/3, suggested by spin-statistics, at high energies is discussed.

    1995-02-01

    Recently, the study of pion production in few-nucleon systems has been advanced considerably, mainly due to experiments using internal targets in stored, cooled beams. Experimental progress has inspired theoretical insights: from measurements close to threshold we have learned that an enhancement of the axial charge caused by heavy-meson exchange significantly contributes to pion production. The study of the production of pions, as well as heavier mesons, with stored polarized beams and polarized internal targets is likely to heave important consequences for our understanding of the nuclear force.

    The LHC opens a new kinematical regime at high energy, where several questions related to the description of the high-energy regime of the Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) remain without satisfactory answers. Some open questions are the search for non-q-bar q resonances, the determination of the spectrum of q-bar q states and the identification of states with anomalous {gamma}{gamma} couplings. A possible way to study these problems is the study of meson production in two-photon interactions. In this contribution we calculate the meson production in two-photon interactions at LHC energies considering proton - proton collisions and estimate the total cross section for the production of the mesons {pi}, a, f, {eta} and {chi}.

    1950-01-01

    In the bombardment of nuclei by 330-Mev x-rays, multiple gamma-rays are emitted. From their angular correlation it is deduced that they are emitted in pairs in the disintegration of neutral particles moving with relativistic velocities and therefore of intermediate mass. The neutral mesons are produced with cross sections similar to those for the charged mesons and with an angular distribution peaked more in the forward direction. The production cross section in hydrogen and the production cross section per nucleon in C and Be are comparable.

    We present a theoretical study of exotic hybrid meson (J PC =1 -+ ) production in photon-photon collisions where one of the photons is deeply virtual, including twist two and twist three contributions. We calculate the cross section of this process, which turns out to be large enough to imply sizeable counting rates in the present high luminosity electron-positron colliders. We emphasize the importance of the πη decay channel for the detection of the hybrid meson candidate π 1 (1400) and calculate the cross section and the angular distribution for πη pair production in the unpolarized case. This angular distribution is a useful tool for disentangling the hybrid meson signal from the background. Finally, we calculate the single spin asymmetry associated with one initial longitudinally polarized lepton. (orig.)

    Quasiexclusive neutral meson production in pN-interactions is studied in experiments with the SPHINX facility operating in a proton beam from the IHEP accelerator (E{sub p}=70 GeV). The cross sections and the parameters of the differential distributions for {pi}{sup 0}, {omega}, {eta} and K{sup 0} production in the deep fragmentation region (x{sub F}>0.79/0.86) are presented. The results show that such proton quasiexclusive reactions with baryon exchange may be promising in searches for exotic mesons. (orig.) 20 refs.

    In the present work the electroproduction for diffractive ρ and ϕ mesons by considering AdS/QCD correspondence and Color Glass Condensate (CGC) approximation are studied with respect to the associated dipole cross section, whose parameters are studied and analysed in the framework of the configurational entropy. Our results suggest different quantum states of the nuclear matter, showing that the extremal points of the nuclear configurational entropy is able to reflect a true description of the ρ and ϕ mesons production, using current data concerning light quark masses. During the computations parameters, obtained in fitting procedure, coincide to the experimental within ∼ 0.1%.

    A nonperturbative dynamical study of dilepton an vector meson production in heavy-ion collisions from 1 to 2 GeV/A bombarding energies is presented incorporating all known sources relevant in this energy range. The dynamical evolution of the nucleus-nucleus collision is described by a transport equation of the Boltzmann-Uehling-Uhlenbeck type evolving phase-space distribution functions for nucleons, baryon resonances, pions, η's, ρ's and σ's with their isospin degrees of freedom. In particular, the sensitivity of the calculated yields to predicted changes of the ρ and ω mesons in dense matter is investigated. (author)

The estimations of the production cross section at e + e - colliders, in hadronic and neutrino interactions are obtained. A real possibility to observed B c mesons at LEP and also at hadron colliders (σ(B c )/σ(bb-bar)∼10 -3 ) has been pointed out. The importance of observing the annihilation decay channels of B c -mesons: B c →τν τ (Br(B c →τν τ )=1.5-2%), and B c →ΦD s , B C →DK etc, has been emphasized. 25 refs.; 16 figs.; 5 tabs

    This thesis describes an experiment studying the inclusive reaction hadron + Be → phi + anything → K + + K - + anything in 100 GeV/c, 120 GeV/c and 200 GeV/c hadron interactions. A total of 8x10 6 events were recorded using both positively and negatively charged unseparated hadron beams supplied by the CERN SPS. The experiment made use of an intelligent on-line event selection system based on micro-processors (FAMPs) in conjunction with a system of large MWPCs to increase the number of phi-events recorded per unit time. In 32 days of data taking over 600,000 phi-mesons were recorded onto magnetic tape. The physics motivation for collecting a large statistics sample of inclusive phi-mesons was the investigation of the inclusive phi-meson production mechanism and phi-spectroscopy. (Auth.)

    2008-01-01

    We have constructed a Lagrangian model with a coupling of σ and ω mesons in the relativistic mean-field theory. Properties of finite nuclei and nuclear matter are explored with the new Lagrangian model SIG-OM. The study shows that an excellent description of binding energies and charge radii of nuclei over a large range of isospin is achieved with SIG-OM. With an incompressibility of nuclear matter K=265 MeV, it is also able to describe the breathing-mode isoscalar giant monopole resonance energies appropriately. It is shown that the high-density behaviour of the equation of state of nuclear and neutron matter with the σ-ω coupling is much softer than that of the non-linear scalar coupling model

    1985-01-01

    Possibilities of observing abundances of phi mesons and narrow hadronic pairs, as results of QGP and Chiral transitions, are considered for nucleus-nucleus interactions. Kinematical requirements in forming close pairs are satisfied in K+K decays of S(975) and delta (980) mesons with small phi, and phi (91020) mesons with large PT, and in pi-pi decays of familiar resonance mesons only in a partially restored chiral symmetry. Gluon-gluon dominance in QGP can enhance phi meson production. High hadronization rates of primordial resonance mesons which form narrow hadronic pairs are not implausible. Past cosmic ray evidences of anomalous phi production and narrow pair abundances are considered.

    The production rates of the orbitally excited Ds** mesons, Ds1 and Ds2*, are measured with the 4.1 million hadronic Z decays recorded by the ALEPH detector during 1991--1995. The Ds** mesons are reconstructed in the decay modes Ds1+ -> D*+ K0, Ds1+ -> D*0 K+ and Ds2*+ -> D0 K+. The production rate of the Ds1 is measured to be n(Z->Ds1+-)=(0.52+-0.09+-0.06)%, under the assumption that the two considered decay modes of the Ds1 saturate the branching ratio. The production rate of the Ds2* is determined to be n(Z->Ds2*+-)=(0.83+-0.29+0.07-0.13)%, assuming that the branching fraction of the decay Ds2*+ -> D0 K+ is 45%. The production rates in Z->cc and Z->bbar decays are measured separately.

    Recent experimental and theoretical advances in investigating electromagnetic meson production reactions in the nucleon resonance region are reviewed. The article gives a description of current experimental facilities with electron and photon beams and presents a unified derivation of most of the phenomenological approaches being used to extract the resonance parameters from the data. The analyses of {pi} and {eta} production data and the resulting transition form factors for the {Delta}(1232)P{sub 33}, N(1535)S{sub 11}, N(1440)P{sub 11}, and N(1520)D{sub 13} resonances are discussed in detail. The status of our understanding of the reactions with production of two pions, kaons, and vector mesons is also reviewed.

    Preliminary results on the cross section ratios of exclusive incoherent ρ 0 and φ meson production off deuterium, carbon, calcium, and lead to that off hydrogen and coherent ρ 0 and φ meson production off calcium and lead to that off carbon in deep-inelastic muon-nucleon and muon-nucleus scattering are reported. The data were taken with the E665 spectrometer using the Fermilab Tevatron muon beam. The mean beam energy was 470 GeV. Increases in the cross section ratios are seen in both the elastic and quasi-elastic production as the four-momentum squared of the virtual photon increases. The results support the idea of color transparency

    Compelling evidence is presented for the production of the lying (D 0 , D + ) isodoublet of charmed mesons by e + e - annihilation. A study of the recoil mass spectra against these mesons reveals the presence of more massive charmed states, the D* 0 and D* + , produced in association with the D isodoublet. Mass values and upper limits on the width of the D and D* are established, and the branching fractions for several D* decay modes are obtained. An analysis of the production and decay angular distributions shows that the D is probably a pseudoscalar state and the D* is probably a vector. Finally, upper limits are obtained for D 0 -antiD 0 mixing

    In the present thesis the exclusive reaction {mu}+N{yields}{mu}'+{omega}{pi}{sup 0}+N is studied from collisions of a polarized muon beam (160 GeV/c momentum) with a polarized {sup 6}LiD target. The goal is the quantitative determination of the spin-parity (J{sup P}) 1{sup -} contribution in the {omega}{pi}{sup 0} signal, which is in theoretical models identified as the first radial excitation of the {rho}(770) meson with mass {proportional_to}1250 MeV/c{sup 2}. The concurring 1{sup +} in this mass region is the known b{sub 1}(1235) with dominant {omega}{pi}{sup 0} decay. The power of the electromagnetic calorimeter ECAL2 was studied by means of exclusive {omega} and the existence of crystals detected. It was shown that the contribution of the energy calibration of a single crystal to the observed {pi}{sup 0} width is small. The {omega}{pi}{sup 0} selection for the {omega}{pi}{sup 0} gives the kinematical range of the reaction: Squared mass of the virtual photon ({gamma}{sup *}): left angle Q{sup 2} right angle {proportional_to}10{sup -1} (GeV/c{sup 2}){sup 2}; Bjorken variable left angle x{sub B} right angle {proportional_to}10{sup -3}; energy in the photon-nucleon c. m. rest system: left angle W right angle {proportional_to}13.5 GeV; inclination of the exponential t-distribution: b=5.27{+-}0.29 GeV{sup -2}. The background was determined by means of a fit of the accociated {lambda} distribution in a height of 19{+-}4% (<11% in the {omega}{pi}{sup 0} peak for incoherent scattering). The spin-parity was studied by the consideration of numerous angular distributions for the relative orientations of muon scattering, {omega}{pi}{sup 0} production, and decay planes. Acceptance corrections were calculated by means of a self-developed Monte-Carlo generator. We observed a 42.1{+-}29.2% strong J{sup P}=1{sup -} contribution (77.2{sub -35.2}{sup 22.8}% for incoherent scattering), compatible with theoretical prediction. For this contribution the conservation of the

    Full Text Available Identified hadron spectra are considered to be sensitive to the transport properties of strongly interacting matter produced in high-energy nucleus-nucleus collisions. π0 and η mesons in ALICE are identified via their two-photon decays by using calorimeters and the central tracking system. In the latter, photons are measured via their conversion to electron-positron pairs in the material of the inner ALICE barrel tracking detectors. The measured production spectra in pp, p–Pb and Pb–Pb collisions at mid–rapidity and over a wide pT range will be presented in the available Large Hadron Collider (LHC energies of Run I. The resulting nuclear modification factor RAA at different centrality classes shows a clear pattern of strong suppression in the hot QCD medium with respect to pp collisions. Comparison of the ALICE results on neutral mesons with lower-energy experiments is also discussed.

    A report is presented of a recent direct measurement of the nucleon number (λ) dependence of the production cross sections for the charmed mesons D 0 and D + using π +- beams incident on a segmented target of Be, Al, Cu and W. The data derive from the experiment E769 - Hadroproduction of Charm - at Fermilab. The experimental apparatus is described together with the following analysis. Starting from a sample of ∼ 1500 D mesons in the range of O F A = σ O A α , with α = 0.99 ± 0.03. The X F dependence of α is examined and the results obtained are compared with those of other experiments and with theoretical expectations based on perturbative QCD and on an EMC like model of nuclear shadowing.

  4. Light Scalar Mesons in Central Production at COMPASS

    CERN Document Server

    Austregesilo, A.

    2016-01-01

    COMPASS is a fixed-target experiment at the CERN SPS that studies the spectrum of light-quark hadrons. In 2009, it collected a large dataset using a $190\\,$GeV$/c$ positive hadron beam impinging on a liquid-hydrogen target in order to measure the central exclusive production of light scalar mesons. One of the goals is the search for so-called glueballs, which are hypothetical meson-like objects without valence-quark content. We study the decay of neutral resonances by selecting centrally produced pion pairs from the COMPASS dataset. The angular distributions of the two pseudoscalar mesons are decomposed in terms of partial waves, where particular attention is paid to the inherent mathematical ambiguities. The large dataset allows us to perform a detailed analysis in bins of the two squared four-momentum transfers carried by the exchange particles in the reaction. Possible parameterisations of the mass dependence of the partial-wave amplitudes in terms of resonances are also discussed.

  5. Exclusive central diffractive production of scalar, pseudoscalar and vector mesons

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Lebiedowicz P.

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available We discuss exclusive central diffractive production of scalar (ƒ0(980, ƒ0(1370, ƒ0(1500, pseudoscalar (η, η′(958, and vector (ρ0 mesons in proton-proton collisions. The amplitudes are formulated in terms of effective vertices required to respect standard rules of Quantum Field Theory and propagators for the exchanged pomeron and reggeons. Different pomeron-pomeron-meson tensorial (vectorial coupling structures are possible in general. In most cases two lowest orbital angular momentum - spin couplings are necessary to describe experimental differential distributions. For the ƒ0(980 and η production the reggeon-pomeron, pomeron-reggeon, and reggeon-reggeon exchanges are included in addition, which seems to be necessary at relatively low energies. The theoretical results are compared with the WA102 experimental data, in order to determine the model parameters. For the ρ0 production the photon-pomeron and pomeron-photon exchanges are considered. The coupling parameters of tensor pomeron and/or reggeon are fixed from the H1 and ZEUS experimental data of the γp → ρ0 p reaction. We present first predictions of this mechanism for pp → ppπ+π− reaction being studied at COMPASS, RHIC, Tevatron, and LHC. Correlation in azimuthal angle between outgoing protons and distribution in pion rapidities at √s = 7 TeV are presented. We show that high-energy central production of mesons could provide crucial information on the spin structure of the soft pomeron.

  6. Production of charmed mesons and charmed baryons at the ISR

    Geist, W.M.

    1980-01-01

    Although many experiments were dedicated to charm search in hadronic interactions no significant signals were found until recently. This is why no consistent picture for charmed particle production could be extracted from the data so far. After the first observation of D + production by the CCHK-Collaboration, the obvious aim is to learn more details about the dominant production mechanisms of this new flavour. The observation of charmed baryon production at the ISR by the CCHK and two other collarborations constitutes another major step forward in this field. Here, the two experiments performed by CCHK with the Split Field Magnet (SFM) will be described, in which charmed meson production and charmed (anti)-baryon production were observed. Cross sections will be presented and consequences of the results will be discussed

    Exclusive production of the isoscalar vector mesons $\\omega$ and $\\phi$ is measured with a 190 GeV$/c$ proton beam impinging on a liquid hydrogen target. Cross section ratios are determined in three intervals of the Feynman variable $x_{F}$ of the fast proton. A significant violation of the OZI rule is found, confirming earlier findings. Its kinematic dependence on $x_{F}$ and on the invariant mass $M_{p\\mathrm{V}}$ of the system formed by fast proton $p_\\mathrm{fast}$ and vector meson $V$ is discussed in terms of diffractive production of $p_\\mathrm{fast}V$ resonances in competition with central production. The measurement of the spin density matrix element $\\rho_{00}$ of the vector mesons in different selected reference frames provides another handle to distinguish the contributions of these two major reaction types. Again, dependences of the alignment on $x_{F}$ and on $M_{p\\mathrm{V}}$ are found. Most of the observations can be traced back to the existence of several excited baryon states contributing to ...

    Associative $\\phi$-meson and neutral kaon production has been investigated in neutron--carbon interactions with the EXCHARM spectrometer at the Serpukhov accelerator. The cross section of inclusive associative $\\phi$ and $K^0/\\bar{K^0}$ production has been defined. The fraction of processes, permitted by Okubo--Zweig--Iizuka rule, was estimated in reactions with $\\phi$-meson production.

    1973-01-01

    This image is taken from one of CERN's bubble chambers and shows the decay of a positive kaon in flight. The decay products of this kaon can be seen spiraling in the magnetic field of the chamber. The invention of bubble chambers in 1952 revolutionized the field of particle physics, allowing real tracks left by particles to be seen and photographed by expanding liquid that has been heated to boiling point.

  13. Vector mesons in dense matter and dilepton production in heavy ion collisions at intermediate energies

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Santini, Elvira

    2008-02-15

    The vector meson spectral functions are calculated to the first order in the nuclear matter density assuming the dominant contribution comes from the couplings of the vector mesons to nucleons and nucleon resonances. An attempt is made to reproduce the HADES dilepton production data with the in-medium spectral functions of the vector mesons using the Relativistic Quantum Molecular Dynamics (RQMD) transport model developed earlier for modelling heavy-ion collisions. The results are sensitive to the in-medium broadening of nucleon resonances. A generally good agreement with the HADES data is achieved for selfconsistent treatment of the nucleon resonance broadening and the vector meson spectral functions. (orig.)

    We make the first calculation of the electroweak couplings of hybrid mesons to conventional mesons appropriate to photoproduction and to the decays of B or D mesons. E1 amplitudes are found to be large and may contribute in charge exchange γp→nH + allowing production of (among others) the charged 1 -+ exotic hybrid off a 2 exchange. Axial hybrid meson photoproduction is predicted to be large courtesy of π exchange, and its strange hybrid counterpart is predicted in B→ψK H (1 + ) with branching ratio B∼10 -4 . Higher multipoles and some implications for hybrid charmonium are briefly discussed

    The aim of this experiment is to search for non-$q \\bar{q}$ mesons produced in the central region in the reaction pp~$\\rightarrow$~$ p _{f} (X ^0)p _{s} $ at 450 GeV/c, where the subscripts f~and s~indicate the fastest and slowest particles in the laboratory respectively and X$^0$ represents the central system that is presumed to be produced by double exchange processes. The state X$^0$ will be studied in many decay modes, e.g. $ \\pi ^+ \\pi ^-, pi ^+ \\pi ^- \\pi ^0, 2 \\pi ^+ 2 \\pi ^-, 2 \\pi ^+ 2 \\pi ^- \\pi ^0, eta \\pi ^+ \\pi ^-, \\omega \\pi ^+ \\pi ^-, K ^+ K ^- , K ^+ K ^- \\pi ^0 , K ^0 _{s} K ^\\pm \\pi ^- , K ^+ K ^- \\pi ^+ \\pi ^- , 2K ^\\pm 2K ^\\pm , K ^0 _{s} K ^0 _{s} , K ^0 _{s} K ^0 _{s} \\pi ^0 , $ $\\eta

    A study of central meson production as a function of the difference in transverse momentum (dPT) of the exchanged particles shows that undisputed qqbar mesons are suppressed at small dPT whereas the glueball candidates are enhanced. In addition, the production cross section for different resonances depends strongly on the azimuthal angle between the two outgoing protons.

    An approved and funded exclusive COSY experiment is presented, which focuses on near threshold two meson production via the reactions p+d→ 3 He + π + π - and p+d→ 3 He+K + K-. It takes advantage of the high quality of the cooled external COSY beam and the existing spectrometer BIG KARL. The setup consists of a vertex wall and a scintillator cylinder and endcap covering a 4π solid angle. The large efficiency and high resolution of this detection method will yield precision data on the low energy (T 0 (975). Existing inclusive data as well as first results of a very recent 'semi-exclusive' experiment performed at SATURNE will be also be presented

    In this paper we study double vector meson production in γγ interactions at high energies and estimate, using the color dipole picture, the main observables which can be probed at the International Linear Collider (ILC). The total γ(Q{sub 1}{sup 2}) + γ(Q{sub 2}{sup 2}) → V{sub 1} + V{sub 2} cross sections for V{sub i} = ρ, J/ψ, and Υ are computed and the energy and virtuality dependencies are studied in detail. Our results demonstrate that the experimental analysis of this process is feasible at the ILC and it can be useful to constrain the QCD dynamics at high energies. (orig.)

  20. A review of central production experiments at the CERN Omega spectrometer

    CERN Document Server

    Kirk, Andrew

    2014-01-01

    The non-Abelian nature of QCD suggests that particles that have a gluon constituent, such as glueballs or hybrids, should exist. This paper presents a study of central meson production in the fixed target experiments WA76, WA91 and WA102 at the CERN Omega spectrometer at centre-of-mass energies of $\\sqrt{s} = 12.7$, 23.8 and 29~GeV. A study of the resonance production cross section as a function of $\\sqrt{s}$ shows which states are compatible with being produced by Double Pomeron Exchange (DPE). In these DPE processes, the difference in the transverse momentum between the exchange particles ($dP_T)$ can be used to select out known $q\\overline q$ states from non-$q \\overline q$ candidates. The distribution of the azimuthal angle ($\\phi$) between the two exchange particles suggests that the Pomeron transforms like a non-conserved vector current. Finally there is evidence from an analysis of the the decay modes of the scalar states observed, that the lightest scalar glueball manifests itself through the mixing w...

  1. Phenolipids as antioxidants in omega-3 enriched food products

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Sørensen, Ann-Dorit Moltke; Aleman, M.; Durand, E.

    Foods containing omega-3 PUFA are highly susceptible to oxidation. This causes formation of undesirable flavors and loss of health-beneficial fatty acids. To protect these food products, antioxidant addition may be a solution. Lately, extensive work has been performed on phenolipids...... and their efficacy in model emulsion systems. Since the polar paradox hypothesis was a simplified statement of the antioxidant efficacy in emulsions, a new term, “cut-off effect”, was introduced. The cut-off effect describes the efficacy of phenolipids in simple emulsions. However, most food products consist...... acid and its esters, caffeates, in two different fish-oil-enriched food products: mayonnaise and milk. Lipid oxidation was evaluated from 3 parameters measured over storage time: peroxide value, volatiles and tocopherol concentrations. The results demonstrate the influence of the complex emulsions...

  2. Interference in Exclusive Vector Meson Production in Heavy-Ion Collisions

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Klein, Spencer R.; Nystrand, Joakim

    2000-01-01

    Vector mesons are produced copiously in peripheral relativistic heavy-ion collisions. Virtual photons from one ion can fluctuate into quark-antiquark pairs and scatter from the second ion, emerging as vector mesons. The emitter and target are indistinguishable, so emission from the two ions will interfere. Vector mesons have negative parity so the interference is destructive, reducing the production of mesons with small transverse momentum. The mesons are short lived, and decay before emission from the two ions can overlap. However, the decay-product wave functions overlap and interfere since they are produced in an entangled state, providing an example of the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox.

  3. Perspectives of Scalar- and Vector- Meson Production in Hadron-Nucleus Reactions

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Cassing, W.

    2000-01-01

    The production and decay of vector mesons (ρ, ω) in pA reactions at COSY energies is studied with particular emphasis on their in-medium spectral functions. It is explored within transport calculations, if hadronic in-medium decays like π + π - or π 0 γ might provide complementary information to their dilepton (e + e - ) decays. Whereas the π + π - signal from the ρ-meson is found to be strongly distorted by pion rescattering, the ω- meson Dalitz decay to π 0 γ appears promising even for more heavy nuclei. The perspectives of scalar meson ( f 0 , a 0 ) production in pp reactions are investigated within a boson-exchange model indicating that the f 0 -meson might hardly be detected in these collisions in the K(anti)K or ππ decay channels whereas the exclusive channel pp→da 0 + looks very promising.

    2015-01-01

    The awareness of health benefits of marine lipids with a high content of omega-3 poly unsaturated fatty acids from fish and algae oil has led to an increased intake as oil and in products. However, these lipids are highly susceptible to lipid oxidation, which results in the formation of undesirable...... off-flavours and gives rise to unhealthy compounds such as free radicals and reactive aldehydes. Necessary prerequisites for successful development of omega-3 enriched products are that the oil used for enrichment is of a high quality and low in oxidation products and that oxidation of the lipids...

    This thesis presents a measurement of the cross sections for the production of the charmed mesons in diffractive deep inelastic positron-proton scattering (DIS) interactions of the type ep{yields}eXY, where the system X is separated from a low-mass system Y, by a large rapidity gap where no particles are observed. These diffractive processes can be explained as a result of the exchange of a strongly interacting colour singlet object between the final state particles. In this measurement data taken with the H1 detector in the years 1999-2000, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of L{sub int}=46.7 pb{sup -1} are used. Inclusive DIS events are selected in the kinematic range with the momentum transfer Q{sup 2} element of [2;100] GeV and inelasticity y{sub bj} element of [0.05;07]. The charm quark is tagged by requiring a D{sup *} meson decaying into the channel D{sup *}{yields}D{sup 0}{pi}{sub slow}{yields}K{pi}{pi}{sub slow} inside the central tracking system with transverse momenta p{sub t}(D{sup *})>2 GeV. The forward components of the H1 detector are used to select genuine diffractive events on the basis of the forward sub-detectors activity and of the presence a large rapidity gap in the final state hadrons. The visible charm production cross sections are measured in the diffractive kinematic range M{sub Y} < 1.6 GeV, vertical stroke t vertical stroke < 1 GeV{sup 2} and x{sub P} < 0.04 to be {sigma}(ep{yields}e{sup '}(D{sup *}X)Y)=249{+-}31(stat.){+-}30(sys) pb, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second systematic. The shape of the differential distributions for diffractive D{sup *} production are well described by the collinear factorisation model which is implemented in the Monte Carlo simulation RAPGAP.

  6. Meson (photo- and) electro-production and the structure of nuclei at short distances

    1985-09-01

    The present status and the future prospects of the studies of very inelastic electronuclear reaction are reviewed, when both high energy and high momentum are transferred to the nucleus. Real and virtual mesons are tested on the same footing. Real meson production allows us to study the propagation of baryonic and mesonic resonances in nuclei and to put constraints on their interaction with the nucleon. Virtual meson creation is an alternative way to deal with exchange currents. The first lecture deals with the elementary operators, which describe meson photo- and electroproduction on free nucleons. The second one deals with real meson- photo- and electroproduction on few-body systems. Only the main features are discussed here and the last developments are presented. The third lecture deals with the coupling of the electromagnetic probe to the virtual meson in nuclei. The emphasis is put on the few-body systems, since their nuclear wave functions are known and since they are simple enough to allow for elaborate calculations. The case of heavy nuclei is also discussed. In the last lecture, I will try to look for evidence of the limits and the breakdown of the description of nuclei in terms of nucleons and mesons, and to forecast the new developments

    The Mainz Microtron MAMI provides a continuous-wave unpolarized or spin-polarized electron beam with energies up to 1.6 GeV and high degrees of polarization. Electro-production of strange mesons is performed in the multi-spectrometer facility with the KAOS spectrometer for kaon detection and a high-resolution spectrometer for electron detection in plane or out of plane. Differential cross section measurements of exclusive p(e,e{sup ′}K{sup +})Λ,Σ{sup 0} reactions at low four-momentum transfers in the nucleon's third resonance region have been done, followed by a measurement of the beam helicity asymmetry for p(e{sup →},e{sup ′}K{sup +})Λ. These studies are important for the understanding of the effective coupling of photons to the hadrons and their resonances and electromagnetic form factors entering different effective Lagrangian models for photo- and electro-production of strangeness. The polarized structure function, extracted from the beam helicity asymmetry, shows an especially high sensitivity to model parameters.

    Full Text Available We report on the status of the search for η-mesic nuclei and the studies of the interaction of the η meson with nucleons. Recently we have completed the analysis of the newWASA-at-COSY data on the production of the η meson with polarized proton beam. New results on the analyzing power for the p̄p → ppη reaction with more than an order of magnitude improved precision shed a new light on the production mechanism of the η meson in nucleon-nucleon collisions. Also, the latest results of the search for η-mesic nuclei are discussed.

    The inclusive production of anti D 0 mesons in neutrino-nucleon collisions is studied from the viewpoint of the quasiparton mechanism. The ratio R anti D 0 υ = σ(υ μ N → μ - X)/σ(υ μ N → μ - X), the kinematic distributions averaged over the υ μ spectrum, and the average kinematic characteristics of the final μ - and anti D 0 mesons are calculated. The number of events with anti D 0 -meson production is estimated as a function of the number of inclusive events

    Our first paper under this grant is a calculation of prompt lepton production in upsilon and toponium decay. The results should prove useful in identifying signals for charm or bottom production. Our work has led to some improvement in our understanding of psi production in hadronic interactions, although further work is needed. Attempts to explain the difference between experimental and theoretical rates of psi hadroproduction led to a study of quark-gluon scattering, which proved to have a negative impact on the theoretical cross section once a leading mass singularity was absorbed into the gluon distribution function. Our study of psi production in B meson decays has led to an improvement in the leading-log calculation of this rate, which gives a much more precise prediction of the decay rate. We have also calculated all first-order QCD corrections to this weak process. We are now completing a companion calculation of n/sub c/ production, for which there is presently no data. Dr. Harms and Dr. Cox have collaborated on an attempt to determine the dominant contribution to the difference sigma(pN → psi x) - sigma(anti pN → psi x). The lowest order process contributing to this difference (q anti q → psi GG) has been shown previously to be small. They have calculated the next order process (q anti q → G*G* → psi G) and have apparently uncovered a new example of the violation of the Bloch-Nordsieck mechanism in QCD. Our work outside the realm of QCD has included a new fit to the total pp and anti pp cross sections. Dr. Cox has also been pursuing the question of representations of extended (especially N=8) supersymmetry

    The coherent production of 3π systems by charged current antineutrino interactions on neon nuclei is studied in the bubble chamber BEBC exposed to the CERN SPS wide band beam. The coherent signal is attributed mainly to (ρπ) production, where the (ρπ) system is either non-resonant or comes from the decay of a 1 mesons. The kinematical variables and the total cross section are compared with the predictions of the meson dominance model. (orig.)

  13. D meson production asymmetry, unfavored fragmentation, and consequences for prompt atmospheric neutrino production

    Science.gov (United States)

    Maciuła, Rafał; Szczurek, Antoni

    2018-04-01

    We consider unfavored light quark/antiquark to D meson fragmentation. We discuss nonperturbative effects for small transverse momenta. The asymmetry for D+ and D- production measured by the LHCb collaboration provides natural constraints on the parton (quark/antiquark) fragmentation functions. We find that already a fraction of q /q ¯→D fragmentation probability is sufficient to account for the measured asymmetry. We make predictions for similar asymmetry for neutral D mesons. Large D -meson production asymmetries are found for large xF which is related to dominance of light quark/antiquark q /q ¯→D fragmentation over the standard c →D fragmentation. As a consequence, prompt atmospheric neutrino flux at high neutrino energies can be much larger than for the conventional c →D fragmentation. The latter can constitute a sizeable background for the cosmic neutrinos claimed to be observed recently by the IceCube Observatory. Large rapidity-dependent D+/D- and D0/D¯0 asymmetries are predicted for low (√{s }=20 - 100 GeV ) energies. The q /q ¯→D fragmentation leads to enhanced production of D mesons at low energies. At √{s }=20 GeV the enhancement factor with respect to the conventional contribution is larger than a factor of five. In the considered picture the large-xF D mesons are produced dominantly via fragmentation of light quarks/antiquarks. Predictions for fixed target p + 4He collisions relevant for a fixed target LHCb experiment are presented.

    Strangeness production processes bar pp→ bar YY (Y=Λ,Σ) have been studied near threshold in a full coupled-channel calculation. The transition interactions are based on K- and K * -meson exchange. The elastic part of the bar pp and bar YY interactions has been derived from a one-boson-exchange version of the Bonn NN potential and a corresponding extension to the hyperon-nucleon case whereas the annihilation part is taken into account by introducing phenomenological optical potentials. First results are presented for the reactions bar pp→ bar ΛΣ 0 +bar Σ 0 Λ as well as bar pp→ bar Σ ± Σ ± , bar Σ 0 Σ 0 , which agree with existing data. As in bar pp→ bar ΛΛ, tensor and spin-triplet dominance is realized in bar pp→ bar Σ Σ but is somewhat reduced in bar pp→ bar Λ Σ 0 +bar Σ 0 Λ. Although bar Σ - Σ - cannot be reached from bar pp by a single transition, the corresponding cross section is only slightly smaller than for bar Σ + Σ + . Initial-and final-state effects play a decisive role, even in cross section ratios

    Using the CLEO detector at the Cornell Electron Storage Ring, we observe B-meson decays to Λ c + and report on improved measurements of inclusive branching fractions and momentum spectra of other baryons. For the inclusive decay bar B→Λ c + X with Λ c + →pK - π + , we find that the product branching fraction B(bar B→Λ c + X)B(Λ c + →pK - π + )=(0.273±0.051± 0.039)%. Our measured inclusive branching fractions to noncharmed baryons are B(B→pX)=(8.0±0.5±0.3)%, B(B→ΛX)=(3.8±0.4±0.6)%, and B(B→Ξ - X)=(0.27±0.05±0.04)%. From these rates and studies of baryon-lepton and baryon-antibaryon correlations in B decays, we have estimated the branching fraction B(bar B→Λ c + X) to be (6.4±0.8±0.8)%. Combining these results, we calculate B(Λ c + →pK - π + ) to be (4.3±1.0±0.8)%

    Measurements of exclusive meson production are a useful tool in the study of hadronic structure. In particular, one can discern the relevant degrees of freedom at different distance scales through these studies. In the transition region between low momentum transfer (where a description of hadronic degrees of freedom in terms of effective hadronic Lagrangians is valid) and high momentum transfer (where the degrees of freedom are quarks and gluons), the predictive power of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), the theory of the strong interaction, is limited due to the absence of a complete solution. Thus, one has to rely upon experimental data from the non-perturbative intermediate-energy regime to thoroughly understand the onset of perturbative QCD (pQCD) as the momentum transfer is increased. This work involves two deep exclusive meson electroproduction experiments at Jefferson Lab (JLab). The p(e,e'pi+)n reaction is studied at fixed Q^2 and W of 2.5 GeV2 and 2.0 GeV, respectively, while varying the four momentum transfer to the nucleon -t from 0.2 to 2.1 GeV2 . As -t is increased, the hadronic interaction scale is reduced independently of the observation scale of the virtual photon, providing valuable information about the hard- scattering process in general. The data was taken at JLab Hall C in 2003, as a part of the experiment E01-004, Fpi-2, using the High Momentum Spectrometer (HMS) and Short Orbit Spectrometer (SOS), and in this work, the results of the differential cross section analysis are presented and compared to prior data, as well as two theoretical models. Using these results over a wide -t range, the transition from hard to soft QCD is also studied. In addition, the p(e,e'K+)Lambda(Sigma0) reactions are also studied. Despite their importance in elucidating the reaction mechanism underlying strangeness production, we still do not have complete understanding of these reactions above the resonance region. The experiment, E12- 09-011, intends to

  19. Diagrammatic Approach to Meson Production in Proton-Proton Collisions near Threshold

    2000-01-01

    We evaluate the threshold T-matrices for the reactions pp → ppπ 0 , pnπ + , ppη, ppω,pΛK + , and pn → pnη in a relativistic Feynman diagram approach. We employ an effective range approximation to take care of the strong S-wave pN and pΛ final-state interaction. We stress that the heavy baryon formalism is not applicable in the NN-system above π-production threshold due to the large external momentum, vertical-bar rvec p vertical-bar ≅ √(Mm π ). The magnitudes of the experimental threshold amplitudes extracted from total cross section data, script-A = (2.7 - 0.3i)fm 4 , script-B = (2.8 - 1.5i)fm 4 , vertical-bar script-C vertical-bar = 1.32 fm 4 , vertical-bar Omega vertical-bar = 0.53 fm 4 , script-K = √(2(vertical-bar)K s (vertical-bar) 2 + (vertical-bar)K t (vertical-bar) 2 ) = 0.38 fm 4 and (vertical-bar)script-D(vertical-bar) = 2.3 fm 4 can be reproduced by (long-range) o ne-pion exchange and short-range vector meson exchanges, with the latter giving the largest contributions. Pion loop effects in pp → ppπ 0 appear to be small. The presented diagrammatic approach requires further tests via studies of angular distributions and polarization observables

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.

  2. D-meson production by muons in the COMPASS experiment at CERN

    Zvyagin, Alexander

    2011-01-21

    One of the physics goals of the COMPASS experiment at CERN was to measure the contribution of gluons to the nucleon spin. To achieve this, it was proposed to scatter polarized 160 GeV/c muons on a polarized deuteron target and to detect D mesons in the final state. The underlying process in this D meson production is supposed to be the Photon-Gluon Fusion (PGF), where a virtual photon emitted by the muon interacts with a gluon from the target nucleon, producing a charm-anticharm quark pair. Fragmentation of a charm (anticharm) quark leads with high probability to the creation of a D{sup 0} or D{sup *} meson, which COMPASS detects via the D{sup 0}{yields}K{pi} and D{sup *}{yields}D{sup 0}{pi}{yields}K{pi}{pi} decay modes. From the longitudinal cross section spin asymmetries of the D meson production and theoretical predictions for the PGF cross section, the gluon contribution to the nucleon spin has been measured by the COMPASS experiment. The results presented in the thesis are the following. Based on data from the year 2004 a total visible cross section of 1.8{+-}0.4 nb, for the D{sup *} meson production, has been measured, with the error being dominated by systematic effects. It is validated that the D mesons are indeed produced through the PGF process, by comparison of measured D meson kinematic distributions to the ones predicted by a theory (AROMA generator). A good agreement was found for the distribution shapes, which confirms that PGF plays a major role. However, a 20% difference was found in the number of produced D{sup 0} and D{sup 0} mesons (and for the D{sup *+} and D{sup *-} mesons as well) which is significantly larger than predicted by AROMA. Kinematic distributions of D{sup 0} and D{sup *} mesons were compared with the background and also with the nearby K{sup *}{sub 2}(1430){sup 0} resonance, using all longitudinal data taken in 2002-2006. The particle-antiparticle asymmetry has been studied as a function of several kinematic variables. The 20

  5. New results on Coulomb effects in meson production in relativistic heavy ion collisions

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Rybicki Andrzej

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available We propose a new method of investigating the space-time evolution of meson production in heavy ion collisions, by making use of spectator-induced electromagnetic (“Coulomb” effects. The presence of two nuclear remnants (“spectator systems” in the non-central collision generates a strong Coulomb field, which modifies the trajectories of charged final state hadrons. This results in charge-dependent azimuthal anisotropies in final state meson emission. In our approach, this effect can be computed numerically by means of a high-statistics Monte Carlo simulation, using the distance between the meson formation zone and the spectator system as free parameter. Our simulation correctly describes the electromagnetic effect on azimuthal anisotropies observed for π+ and π−mesons in Au+Au collisions at lower RHIC energy, known from data recently reported by the STAR Collaboration. Similarly to our earlier studies of spectator-induced electromagnetic effects, also in the present study we find that these effects offer sensitivity to the position of the meson formation zone with respect to the spectator system. Therefore, we conclude that they can serve as a new tool to investigate the space-time evolution of meson production, and the dynamics of the heavy ion collision.

    The elastic electroproduction of phi mesons is studied at HERA with the H1 detector for photon virtualities 1 < Q^2 < 15 GeV^2 and hadronic centre of mass energies 40 < W < 130 GeV. The Q^2 and t dependences of the cross section are extracted (t being the square of the four-momentum transfer to the target proton). When plotted as function of (Q^2 + M_V^2) and scaled by the appropriate SU(5) quark charge factor, the phi meson cross section agrees within errors with the cross sections of the vector mesons V = rho, omega and J/psi. A detailed analysis is performed of the phi meson polarisation state and the ratio of the production cross sections for longitudinally and transversely polarised phi mesons is determined. A small but significant violation of s-channel helicity conservation (SCHC) is observed.

    A report is presented of a recent direct measurement of the nucleon number ({lambda}) dependence of the production cross sections for the charmed mesons D{sup 0} and D{sup +} using {pi}{sup +-} beams incident on a segmented target of Be, Al, Cu and W. The data derive from the experiment E769 - Hadroproduction of Charm - at Fermilab. The experimental apparatus is described together with the following analysis. Starting from a sample of {approx} 1500 D mesons in the range of O < X{sub F} < 1, the data are found to be well described by the parameterization {sigma}{sub A} = {sigma}{sub O} A{sup {alpha}}, with {alpha} = 0.99 {+-} 0.03. The X{sub F} dependence of {alpha} is examined and the results obtained are compared with those of other experiments and with theoretical expectations based on perturbative QCD and on an EMC like model of nuclear shadowing.

    The charmed mesons D/sup /plus minus//, D/sup 0/, and D/sub s//sup /plus minus//, have been observed in neutron-nucleus collisions at the FNAL Tevatron. A sample of 134 /plus minus/ 19 events as investigated in the decay D/sup /plus minus// /yields/ D/sup 0//pi//sup /plus minus// with the subsequent decay mode D/sup 0/ /yields/ K/sup +/K/sup /minus//. The cross section per nucleon for D/sup /plus minus//, at most probable energy /radical/s = 35 GeV, was measured to be 2.11 /plus minus/ .43 (plus minus/.63)/mu/b/nucleon for 0.0 < x/sub f/ < 0.14 (/bar x//sub f/ = .07). The branching ratio (BR) is defined as: BR /identical to/ Br(D /yields/ D/pi/) /times/ BR(D /yields/ K/sup +/K/sup /minus//). The dependence of the cross section per nucleus on number of nucleons in target was fit to a form A /sup /alpha// and it was found that /alpha/ = .96 /plus minus/ .17. A sample of 64 /plus minus/ 16 D/sub s//sup /plus minus// events was investigates for the decay D/sub s//sup /plus minus// /yields/ /phi//pi//sup /plus minus//. The differential cross section for D/sub s//sup /plus minus// production averaged over the particle and antiparticle states is: BR.[1/2](d/sigma/(D/sub s//sup +/)/dx/sub f/ + d/sigma/(D/sub s//sup /minus//) = 2.85 /plus minus/ 0.80 /plus minus/ .86 /mu/b/nucleon at x/sub f/ = 0.175 where the first errors is statistical and the second error is systematic. The branching fraction is defined as BR /equivalent to/ BR(D/sub s/ /yields/ /phi//pi/), and a linear A dependence was assumed. An estimate of relative cross section is: 0.19 /plus minus/ 0.09 at x/sub f/ = 0. 36 refs., 43 figs., 5 tabs

    Preliminary results on the measurement of nuclear transparencies from exclusive {rho}{sup 0} meson production from E665 at Fermilab are reported. The data were collected on hydrogen, deuterium, carbon, calcium, and lead targets with a mean beam energy of 470 GeV. Increases in the transparencies are observed in both coherent and incoherent production channels as the virtuality of the photon increases, as expected of color transparency. Ideas of systematic studies of color transparency in exclusive vector meson production at CEBAF are discussed.

    A search for associated production of a $Z$ boson with an open charm meson is presented using a data sample, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $1.0\\mathrm{fb}^{-1}$ of proton--proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV, collected by the LHCb experiment. Seven candidate events for associated production of a $Z$ boson with a $D^0$ meson and four candidate events for a $Z$ boson with a $D^+$ meson are observed with a combined significance of 5.1 standard deviations. The production cross-sections in the forward region are measured to be $$\\sigma_{Z\\rightarrow\\mu^+\\mu^-\\!,D^0} = 2.50\\pm1.12\\pm0.22pb$$ $$\\sigma_{Z\\rightarrow\\mu^+\\mu^-\\!,D^+} = 0.44\\pm0.23\\pm0.03pb,$$ where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second systematic.

In the pd {yields} {sup 3}HeX threshold function, clear signals are observed at {omega}, {eta}` and {phi}6 mesons threshold; some structures appear at central masses of the a{sub 0} and f{sub 0}-mesons, as just above the two kaons production threshold. These structures could be the signature of new hadronic exotic states. The two-pion and two-kaon physical background has been estimated in a one-pion exchange model allowing the calculation of the differential cross section for the {pi}{sup -}p {yields} nX elementary process. The results of this calculation of the physical background of the threshold excitation function. The the dd {yields} {alpha}{eta} study, the {eta}-meson was clearly observed in the spectrometer`s final focal plane spectra, in good agreement with a Monte Carlo simulation. A total cross section of the order of the nano-barn has been measured. The results are compared to some other {eta}-meson production processes with lighter nuclei than helium-4. Using different nuclei a comparative study of the {eta}-nucleus interaction has shown that the latter is more binding in the helium-4 case. Based on these data, the charge symmetry breaking in the dd {yields} {alpha}{pi}{sup 0} reaction is studied. Using a {pi}{sup 0}-{eta} mixing model, the extracted cross sections are compatible with the only measurement of this reaction cross section. (author). 59 refs.

    In recent years, foods that contain omega-3 lipids have emerged as important promoters of human health. These lipids are essential for the functional development of the brain and retina, and reduction of the risk of cardiovascular and Alzheimer's diseases. The global market for omega-3 production, particularly docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), saw a large expansion in the last decade due to the increasing use of this lipid as an important component of infant food formulae and supplements. The production of omega-3 lipids from fish and vegetable oil sources has some drawbacks, such as complex purification procedures, unwanted contamination by marine pollutants, reduction or even extinction of several species of fish, and aspects related to sustainability. A promising alternative system for the production of omega-3 lipids is from microbial metabolism of yeast, fungi, or microalgae. The aim of this review is to discuss the various omega-3 sources in the context of the global demand and market potential for these bioactive compounds. To summarize, it is clear that fish and vegetable oil sources will not be sufficient to meet the future needs of the world population. The biotechnological production of single-cell oil comes as a sustainable alternative capable of supplementing the global demand for omega-3, causing less environmental impact.

    In this thesis we present a study of the production of D0 meson in the low transverse momentum region. In particular the inclusive differential production cross section of the D0 meson (in the two-body decay channel D0 → K-π+) is obtained extending the published CDF II measurement to pT as low as 1.5 GeV/c. This study is performed at the Tevatron Collider at Fermilab with the CDF II detector.

    Full Text Available Spin density matrix elements have been determined for exclusive ω meson production on hydrogen and deuterium targets, in the kinematic region of 1.0 < Q2 < 10.0 GeV2, 3.0 < W < 6.3 GeV and –t' < 0.2 GeV2. The data, from which SDMEs are determined, were accumulated with the HERMES forward spectrometer during the running period of 1996 to 2007 using the 27.6 GeV electron or positron beam of HERA. A sizable contribution of unnatural parity exchange amplitudes is found for exclusive ω meson production.

    Using nonrelativistic quark model and perturbative QCD the production of B c (B* c ) mesons via resolved-photon interaction in γγ-collisions is studied. It is shown that the resolved-photon contribution via partionic subprocess cγ→B c (B* c )b is very important both near threshold of the B c (B* c )-meson production, where the hadron-like part of the photon structure function dominates, and at large energies, where only the point-like part of the photon structure function give the contribution increased versus energy. 18 refs., 5 figs

    We present a theoretical study of exotic hybrid meson (J{sup PC}=1{sup -+}) production in photon-photon collisions where one of the photons is deeply virtual, including twist two and twist three contributions. We calculate the cross section of this process, which turns out to be large enough to imply sizeable counting rates in the present high luminosity electron-positron colliders. We emphasize the importance of the {pi}{eta} decay channel for the detection of the hybrid meson candidate {pi}{sub 1}(1400) and calculate the cross section and the angular distribution for {pi}{eta} pair production in the unpolarized case. This angular distribution is a useful tool for disentangling the hybrid meson signal from the background. Finally, we calculate the single spin asymmetry associated with one initial longitudinally polarized lepton. (orig.)

  1. A Search for Centrally Produced non-$ q \\bar{q} $ Mesons in Proton Proton Interactions at 450~GeV/c using the CERN $\\Omega$ Spectrometer and GAMS-4000

    2002-01-01

    % WA102 \\\\ \\\\ During the last decade evidence for non-$ q \\bar{q} $ mesons has grown due to experiments having high statistics in various decay modes. However there are still many channels which have promising signals but any definite conclusion is limited by the available statistics. In order to make a significant contribution to this field we propose to perform two 100~day runs combining the efficient multiphoton detection of GAMS-4000 with the good charged particle detection of the Omega Spectrometer to search for other non-$ q \\bar{q} $ mesons in the reaction $ pp \\rightarrow p _{f} X ^{o} p _{s} $ at 450~GeV/c. Although many final states will be studied those decaying to $ \\eta \\eta, \\eta \\eta ^\\prime $ and $ \\eta ^\\prime \\eta ^\\prime $ are of particular interest and the statistics in these channels will be greatly enhanced. This study will act as an important input in helping to understand non-perturbative QCD.

    Introducing quark transverse momenta and masses it is proposed a 3-dimensional generalization of the quark recombination and the quark fusion model for meson production in low transverse momentum hadron-hadron reactions. A consistent description of vector meson production in proton-proton and proton-antiproton reactions from 12 - 405 GeV/c has been achieved. (author)

  3. ϕ Meson Production at Forward Rapidity with the PHENIX Detector at RHIC

    The ϕ meson production in p+p collisions is an important tool to study QCD, providing data to tune phenomenological QCD models, while in high-energy heavy-ion collisions it provides key information on the hot and dense state of the strongly interacting matter produced in such collisions. It is sensitive to the medium-induced effects such as strangeness enhancement, a phenomenon associated with soft particles in bulk matter. Measurements in the dilepton channels are especially interesting since leptons interact only electromagnetically, thus carrying the information from their production phase directly to the detector. Measurements in different nucleus-nucleus collisions allow us to perform a systematic study of the nuclear medium effects on ϕ meson production. The PHENIX detector provides the capabilities to measure the ϕ meson production in a wide range of transverse momentum and rapidity to study various cold nuclear effects such as soft multiple parton rescattering and modification of the parton distribution functions in nuclei. In this proceeding, we report the most recent PHENIX results on ϕ meson production in p+p, d+Au and Cu+Au collisions.

    The HADES (High Acceptance DiElectron Spectrometer) is an experimental apparatus installed at the heavy-ion synchrotron SIS-18 at GSI, Darmstadt. The main physics motivation of the HADES experiment is the measurement of e{sup +}e{sup -} pairs in the invariant-mass range up to 1 GeV/c{sup 2} in heavy-ion collisions as well as in pion and proton-induced reactions. The HADES physics program is focused on in-medium properties of the light vector mesons {rho}(770), {omega}(783) and {phi}(1020), which decay with a small branching ratio into dileptons. Dileptons are penetrating probes which allow to study the in-medium properties of hadrons. However, in heavy-ion collisions, the measurement of such lepton pairs is difficult because they are rare and have a very large combinatorial background. Recently, HADES has been upgraded with new detectors and new electronics in order to handle higher intensity beams and reactions with heavy nuclei up to Au. HADES will continue for a few more years its rich physics program at its current place at SIS-18 and then move to the upcoming international Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR) accelerator complex. In this context the physics results presented in this work are important prerequisites for the investigation of in-medium vector meson properties in p + A and A+A collisions. This work consists of five chapters. The first chapter introduces the physics motivation and a review of recent physics results. In the second chapter, the HADES spectrometer is described and its sub-detectors are presented. Chapter three deals with the issue of lepton identification and the reconstruction of the dielectron spectra in p + p collisions is presented. Here, two reactions are characterized: inclusive and exclusive dilepton production reactions. From the spectra obtained, the corresponding cross sections are presented with the respective statistical and systematical errors. A comparison with theoretical models is included as well

    We calculate at the leading order in αs the QCD amplitude for exclusive neutrino production of a D* or Ds* charmed vector meson on a nucleon. We work in the framework of the collinear QCD approach where generalized parton distributions (GPDs) factorize from perturbatively calculable coefficient functions. We include O (mc) terms in the coefficient functions and the O (mD) term in the definition of heavy meson distribution amplitudes. The show that the analysis of the angular distribution of the decay D(s) *→D(s )π allows us to access the transversity gluon GPDs.

    COMPASS is a fixed-target experiment at the CERN SPS which recorded a data set with an incident proton beam impinging on a liquid hydrogen target in order to study the central production of light scalar mesons. We select events with two protons and two pseudo-scalar mesons in the final state and decompose their angular distribution in terms of partial-wave amplitudes. Fits to the mass-dependence of these amplitudes are used to determine the Breit-Wigner parameters of scalar resonances.

  7. D-meson production in d+Au process using a perturbative approach

    2005-01-01

    The D-meson production at forward rapidities in d+Au processes is calculated using a pQCD based model, assuming that this treatment could be used as a baseline for distinct dynamical and medium effects. It is analysed how the nuclear effects in the nuclear partonic distributions may affect this process at RHIC and LHC energies. An enhancement in the moderate q T region for RHIC, due to antishadowing in the nuclear medium, is found. Our prediction for LHC suggests that shadowing will suppress the D-meson spectra for q T <14 GeV

    The production of excited charm, D 1 (2420) 0 and D 2 * (2460) 0 , and charm-strange, D s 1(2536) ± , mesons in ep collisions was measured with the ZEUS detector at HERA using an integrated luminosity of 126 pb -1 . Masses, widths and helicity parameters were determined. The measured yields were converted to the rates of c quarks hadronising as a given excited charm meson and to the ratios of the dominant D 2 * (2460) 0 and D s1 (2536) ± branching fractions. A search for the radially excited charm meson, D *' (2640) ± , was also performed. The results are compared with those measured previously and with theoretical expectations. (orig.)

    The production of charged hadrons and K_s mesons in the collisions of quasi-real photons has been measured using the OPAL detector at LEP. The data were taken at e+e- centre-of-mass energies of 161 and 172 GeV. The differential cross-sections as a function of the transverse momentum and the pseudorapidity of the charged hadrons and K_s mesons have been compared to the leading order Monte Carlo simulations of PHOJET and PYTHIA and to perturbative next-to-leading order (NLO) QCD calculations. The distributions have been measured in the range 10-125 GeV of the hadronic invariant mass W. By comparing the transverse momentum distribution of charged hadrons measured in gamma-gamma interactions with gamma-proton and meson-proton data we find evidence for hard photon interactions in addition to the purely hadronic photon interactions.

    We study the inclusive hadroproduction of B 0 , B + , and B 0 s mesons at leading order in the parton Reggeization approach using the universal fragmentation functions extracted from the combined e + e - annihilation data from CERN LEP1 and SLAC SLC colliders. We have described B-meson transverse momentum distributions measured in the central region of rapidity by the CDF Collaboration at Fermilab Tevatron and CMS Collaboration at LHC within uncertainties and without free parameters, applying Kimber-Martin-Ryskin unintegrated gluon distribution function in a proton. The forward B-meson production (2.0< y<4.5) measured by the LHCb Collaboration also has been studied and expected disagreement between our theoretical predictions and data has been obtained.

The measured yields were converted to the rates of c quarks hadronising as a given excited charm meson and to the ratios of the dominant D * 2 (2460) 0 and D s1 (2536) ± branching fractions. A search for the radially excited charm meson, D *' (2640) ± , was also performed. The results are compared with those measured previously and with theoretical expectations. (orig.)

    A partial wave analysis of the centrally produced KK and pipi systems shows that the fJ(1710) has J = 0. In addition, a study of central meson production as a function of the difference in transverse momentum (dPT) of the exchanged particles shows that undisputed qqbar mesons are suppressed at small dPT whereas the glueball candidates are enhanced and that the production cross section for different resonances depends strongly on the azimuthal angle between the two outgoing protons.

  14. Microalgal biofactories: a promising approach towards sustainable omega-3 fatty acid production

    Full Text Available Abstract Omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA provide significant health benefits and this has led to an increased consumption as dietary supplements. Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are found in animals, transgenic plants, fungi and many microorganisms but are typically extracted from fatty fish, putting additional pressures on global fish stocks. As primary producers, many marine microalgae are rich in EPA (C20:5 and DHA (C22:6 and present a promising source of omega-3 fatty acids. Several heterotrophic microalgae have been used as biofactories for omega-3 fatty acids commercially, but a strong interest in autotrophic microalgae has emerged in recent years as microalgae are being developed as biofuel crops. This paper provides an overview of microalgal biotechnology and production platforms for the development of omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. It refers to implications in current biotechnological uses of microalgae as aquaculture feed and future biofuel crops and explores potential applications of metabolic engineering and selective breeding to accumulate large amounts of omega-3 fatty acids in autotrophic microalgae.

  15. Experimental investigations of production of glueballs and meson resonant states

    The major efforts reported have been directed toward investigating glueballs and non-strange mesons. The g/sub T/(2050), g/sub T'/(2300), and g/sub T''/(2350) have been observed in the OZI forbidden reaction π - p → phi phi n. Their characteristics are explained within the context of quantum chromodynamics as being produced by 1 to 3 primary glueballs. It is proposed to increase the present statistics in order to reduce the effective partial wave analysis resolution, and to begin to study the high vertical bar t' vertical bar region. It is further planned to pursue coupled channel analysis of high precision π - p → K/sub s/ 0 K/sub s/ 0 n data and other relevant world data in the 2 ++ , 0 ++ , and 4 ++ channels. A program is planned to investigate K - p and p anti p interactions at 8 GeV/c

    Elevated levels of triglycerides are associated with pancreatitis and an increased risk of coronary heart disease. Numerous pharmacologic therapies are available to treat hypertriglyceridemia, including prescription omega-3 fatty acids, which reduce triglyceride levels by 20-50%. Available data indicate the omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) may be beneficial for secondary prevention of coronary heart disease. Products containing DHA may increase low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and, subsequently, coronary heart disease risk. We reviewed prescription omega-3 fatty acid products, of which two-omega-3 acid ethyl esters (OM3EE) and omega-3 carboxylic acid (OM3CA)-contain both DHA and EPA, whereas the other-icosapent ethyl (IPE)-contains EPA only. We identified three retrospective chart reviews and three case reports comparing IPE with OM3EE, whereas two studies compared IPE with placebo. We also reviewed the major studies of OM3EE versus placebo used to gain US FDA approval. LDL-C levels decreased or did not increase significantly in all available studies and case reports in patients receiving the IPE product, with the best data supporting a dose of 4 g per day. The majority of studies only included patients taking IPE concomitantly with statins, but limited data from one study using IPE monotherapy showed a small reduction in LDL-C. Many questions remain regarding IPE, including whether the product reduces cardiovascular events and mortality.

  17. J/ψ and ρ0 meson production at H1

    Kenyon, I.R.

    1996-01-01

    The production of J/ψ and ρ 0 mesons from e-p collisions, both in Deep Inelastic Scattering (DIS) and at Q 2 ∼ 0, has been studied using the H1 detector at HERA. The features of elastic ρ 0 production at Q 2 ∼ 0 are those expected from the Generalized Vector Dominance Model (VDM). However the elastic DIS ρ 0 and DIS J/ψ production as well as the elastic J/ψ production at Q 2 ∼ 0 all show features consistent with models that are inspired by perturbative QCD (pQCD). This pattern indicates that the appearance of a hard scale in vector meson production (either the quark mass, or large Q 2 ) results in a transition from VDM to pQCD. A final topic is the comparison of inelastic J/ψ production to a prediction from the photon-gluon fusion process in NLO. (author)

    The backward production of the B(1235) meson is studied in the reaction K - p → Σ - π + ω. This reaction is observed in the final state Σ - π + π + π - π 0 . A π + ω mass enhancement is visible in the region of the B meson for events with small mod(u)(K - → Σ - ) squared four-momentum transfer. The properties of the enhancement agree with those of the B meson. The cross section for K - p → Σ - B + at 4.15 GeV/c incident K - momentum is (3.2 +- 0.5) μb. The backward production of the B meson is compared with similar baryon exchange productions of the A 1 and C(Q 1 ) axial vector mesons observed in the same experiment. (Auth.)

  19. Exclusive vector meson production in pp collisions at the COMPASS experiment

    2014-01-01

    Mechanisms for particle production in proton-proton collisions at intermediate energies are studied within the COMPASS collaboration using the COMPASS spectrometer at the M2 beam line of the SPS at CERN. The possible production mechanisms are investigated using the production of the vector mesons ω and φ and include resonant diffractive excitation of the beam proton with a subsequent decay of the resonance, central production and the related ''shake-off'' mechanism. The data which were used for this thesis were collected in the years 2008 and 2009 with a 190 GeV/c proton beam impinging on a liquid hydrogen target that was surrounded by a recoil proton detector (RPD). The RPD is an integral part of the newly developed hadron trigger system for which in addition several new detectors have been build. The performances of both RPD and hadron trigger system are scrutinised and efficiency parameters are extracted. A method for reconstruction of recoil protons and for calibration is developed and described. The production of ω mesons is studied with the reaction pp → pωp, ω → π + π - π 0 and the production of φ mesons with the reaction pp → pφp, φ → K + K - for momentum transfers squared between 0.1 (GeV/c) 2 and 1 (GeV/c) 2 . The production ratio σ(pp → pφp)/σ(pp → pωp) is determined as a function of the longitudinal momentum fraction x F and compared to the OZI rule prediction. A significant violation of the OZI rule dependent on x F is found and discussed with respect to resonant structures in the pω mass spectrum. Removing the low pω/pφ mass region which includes these structures eliminates the x F dependence. In addition, the spin density matrix element ρ 00 , i.e. the spin alignment, for both ω and φ mesons is studied. One study is performed in the helicity frame that allows to discriminate resonant diffractive excitation. In a second study, a reference frame with respect to the direction of the momentum transfer

  20. Central Production of Two-Pseudoscalar Meson Systems at the COMPASS Experiment at CERN

    Austregesilo, Alexander; Mallot, Gerhard

    The question of the existence of glueballs is one of the unsolved problems in modern particle physics and can be regarded as a stringent test for quantum chromodynamics. Especially the supernumerous states in the light scalar meson spectrum are candidates for the observation of mixing effects between $q\\bar q$ mesons and pure gluonic bound states. On the other hand, the existence and the properties of many resonances in this sector are disputed. The COMPASS experiment was proposed to make significant contributions to this field. COMPASS is a fixed-target experiment at the CERN SPS which focused on light-quark hadron spectroscopy during the data taking periods in 2008 and 2009. A world-leading data set was collected with a $190\\,\\mathrm{GeV}/c$ hadron beam impinging on a liquid hydrogen target in order to study, inter alia, the central production of glueball candidates in the light meson sector. Especially the double-Pomeron exchange mechanism is well suited for the production of mesons without valenc...

    Full Text Available The main aim of the relativistic heavy-ion experiment is to create extremely hot and dense matter and study the QCD phase structure. With this motivation, experimental program started in the early 1990s at the Brookhaven Alternating Gradient Synchrotron (AGS and the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS followed by Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC at Brookhaven and recently at Large Hadron Collider (LHC at CERN. These experiments allowed us to study the QCD matter from center-of-mass energies (sNN 4.75 GeV to 2.76 TeV. The ϕ meson, due to its unique properties, is considered as a good probe to study the QCD matter created in relativistic collisions. In this paper we present a review on the measurements of ϕ meson production in heavy-ion experiments. Mainly, we discuss the energy dependence of ϕ meson invariant yield and the production mechanism, strangeness enhancement, parton energy loss, and partonic collectivity in nucleus-nucleus collisions. Effect of later stage hadronic rescattering on elliptic flow (v2 of proton is also discussed relative to corresponding effect on ϕ meson v2.

    The production of $J/\\psi$ and $\\Upsilon$ mesons in $pp$ collisions at $\\sqrt{s}$ = 8 TeV is studied with the LHCb detector. The $J/\\psi$ and $\\Upsilon$ mesons are reconstructed in the $\\mu^+ \\mu^-$ decay mode and the signal yields are determined to fit to the $\\mu^+ \\mu^-$ invariant mass distributions. The analysis is performed in the rapidity range 2.0 < $y$ < 4.5 and transverse momentum range 0 < $pT$ < 14(15) GeV/$c$ of the $J/\\psi(\\Upsilon)$ mesons. The $J/\\psi$ and $\\Upsilon$ production cross-sections and the fractions of the $J/\\psi$ mesons from $b$-hadron decays are measured as a function of the meson $pT$ and $y$.

  3. Diffractive vector meson production in deep inelastic scattering

    Kamps, M. de.

    1997-01-01

    This thesis seeks to bring comfort to those who are appalled by the usual high level of violence in high energy physics. Although also here we engage in the customary vandalistic smashing together of two particles, the reaction we will study has a happy end in store for both of them. The subject of this thesis will be the reaction: e + p→e + pV where V is one of the vector mesons ρ, ω, φ, J/ψ. We will investigate the situation where the final state positron enters the ZEUS main detector, which indicates that a violent reaction has taken place between the initial state particles, but nevertheless the proton does not break up. The violence with which the positron is scattered characterises the reaction as a Deep Inelastic Scattering (DIS), the fact that the proton does not break up characterises the reaction as diffractive which explains the title of the thesis. Both DIS and diffractive physics will be defined and discussed in the context of this thesis. (orig./WL)

  4. Analysis of $\\pi^{0},\\eta$ and $\\omega$ mesons in pp collisions with a high energy photon trigger at ALICE

    CERN Document Server

    Yano, Satoshi

    High energy heavy ion collision is a powerful and unique tool to achieve the high density and temperature like the early universe. At normal temperature, partons are confined in nucleons and they can not move freely due to the asymp- totic freedom which is a property of the Quantum Chromo Dynamics (QCD). However, at high density and/or high temperature, they can be deconfined from nucleons. This phase is called the Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP). Hadron production measurements in proton-proton collisions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) energies can observe new phenomena which must be a frontier in the particle physics and allow validation of the predictive power of the QCD and can provide further constrains on pQCD theory for LHC energies. It is well known that the yield of high transvers momentum particles is suppressed in nucleus-nucleus collisions relative to that in proton-proton collisions. This effect is attributed to energy loss of parent partons or perhaps of hadrons after freeze-out. Since π 0 , η and...

    The process of tau/psi meson production in the semi-inclusive μN → μ+tau/psi+X interaction is discussed. It is shown that the measurement of azimuthal asymmetry in semi-inclusive production of tau/psi can serve as a good test for the check of the QCD parton model. An additional method of the check of distribution gluon functions in photon-gluon fusion model is suggested

    The differential cross-section for the inclusive production of ψ (2 S ) mesons in pp collisions at [Formula: see text] has been measured with the LHCb detector. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 36 pb -1 . The ψ (2 S ) mesons are reconstructed in the decay channels ψ (2 S )→ μ + μ - and ψ (2 S )→ J / ψπ + π - , with the J / ψ meson decaying into two muons. Results are presented both for promptly produced ψ (2 S ) mesons and for those originating from b -hadron decays. In the kinematic range p T ( ψ (2 S ))≤16 GeV/ c and 2< y ( ψ (2 S ))≤4.5 we measure [Formula: see text] where the last uncertainty on the prompt cross-section is due to the unknown ψ (2 S ) polarization. Recent QCD calculations are found to be in good agreement with our measurements. Combining the present result with the LHCb J / ψ measurements we determine the inclusive branching fraction [Formula: see text] where the last uncertainty is due to the [Formula: see text], [Formula: see text] and [Formula: see text] branching fraction uncertainties.

    2015-01-01

    We discuss diffractive production of open charm and bottom mesons at the LHC. The differential cross sections for single- and central-diffractive mechanisms for $c\\bar c$ and $b\\bar b$ pair production are calculated in the framework of the Ingelman-Schlein model corrected for absorption effects. The LO gluon-gluon fusion and quark-antiquark anihilation partonic subprocesses are taken into consideration, which are calculated within standard collinear approximation. The extra corrections from reggeon exchanges are taken into account. The hadronization of charm and bottom quarks is taken into account by means of fragmentation functions. Predictions for single- and central-diffractive production in the case of $D$ and $B$ mesons, as well as $D\\bar D$ pairs are presented, including detector acceptance of the ATLAS, CMS and LHCb Collaborations.

    We report a study of the central exclusive production of π + π − and K + K − pairs in high energy hadron-hadron collisions. The amplitude is calculated in the Regge approach including both pomeron and secondary reggeon exchanges and absorption effects due to proton-proton interaction and ππ (KK) rescattering. We discuss a measurement of exclusive production of a scalar χ c0 meson via χ c0 →π + π − , K + K − decay. We find that the relative contribution of resonance states and the ππ (KK) continuum strongly depend on the cut on pion (kaon) transverse momentum. We compare the results with the existing experimental data and present predictions for the RHIC, Tevatron and LHC colliders. We discuss also the f 2 (1270) meson production mediated by an effective tensor pomeron exchanges.

    Full Text Available Background : There is convincing evidence that replacing dietary saturated fats with polyunsaturated fats (PUFA decreases risk of cardiovascular diseases. Therefore, PUFA rich foods such as vegetable oils, fatty fish, and marine omega-3 supplements are recommended. However, PUFA are easily oxidizable and there is concern about possible negative health effects from intake of oxidized lipids. Little is known about the degree of lipid oxidation in such products. Objective : To assess the content of lipid oxidation products in a large selection of vegetable oils and marine omega-3 supplements available in Norway. Both fresh and heated vegetable oils were studied. Design : A large selection of commercially available vegetable oils and marine omega-3 supplements was purchased from grocery stores, pharmacies, and health food stores in Norway. The content of lipid oxidation products were measured as peroxide value and alkenal concentration. Twelve different vegetable oils were heated for a temperature (225°C and time (25 minutes resembling conditions typically used during cooking. Results : The peroxide values were in the range 1.04–10.38 meq/kg for omega-3 supplements and in the range 0.60–5.33 meq/kg for fresh vegetable oils. The concentration range of alkenals was 158.23–932.19 nmol/mL for omega-3 supplements and 33.24–119.04 nmol/mL for vegetable oils. After heating, a 2.9–11.2 fold increase in alkenal concentration was observed for vegetable oils. Conclusions : The contents of hydroperoxides and alkenals in omega-3 supplements are higher than in vegetable oils. After heating vegetable oils, a large increase in alkenal concentration was observed.

    1987-01-01

    This thesis presents results from the first full period of data-taking of the experiment WA69 at the Omega^'^ectrometer, CERN, Geneva. The experiment used a tagged photon beam of energy 60-180 GeV incident on a liquid hydrogen target to study photoproduction of hadronic states. The various components of the experiment are described, with particular emphasis on the electromagnetic calorimeters, and the associated offline software for event reconstruction and acceptance calculation. The performance of the outer calorimeter is discussed, and the pi^0 detection and reconstruction efficiency is examined by comparison with pi^{+/- } production. Searches for photoproduction of neutral meson states reveal a clear signal for the pi^0, eta^0 , and omega^0 mesons. The cross-section for elastic omega^0 production is estimated, and found to be consistent with the established value of 1 mub. The cross-section for inclusive pi^0 and eta^0 production is studied using the variable Feynman-x (x_{F }), and pi^0 production as a ...

    The present invention relates to a process for producing lipids containing the fatty acid petroselinic acid in plants. The production of petroselinic acid is accomplished by genetically transforming plants which do not normally accumulate petroselinic acid with a gene for a .omega.12 desaturase from another species which does normally accumulate petroselinic acid.

  14. Measurements of the $B$ meson production cross-sections at LHCb

    CERN Document Server

    LIU, Bo; ROBBE, Patrick; HE, Jibo

    Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), one of the most fundamental components of the Standard Model theory of Particle Physics, is dedicated to describe the strong interactions among quarks and gluons. For the $B$ meson production cross-sections in hadron-hadron collisions, perturbative QCD (pQCD) calculations are available at next-to-leading order (NLO) and with the fixed-order plus next-to-leading logarithms (FONLL) approximations. Measuring $B$ meson production cross-sections at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is of great importance to test the pQCD calculations. The LHCb detector is a single-arm forward spectrometer. It collects the physical information of the products in proton-proton collisions at the LHC. The differential and total production cross-sections of $B$ mesons (including $B^+$, $B^0$ and $B_s^0$) in proton-proton collisions at $\\sqrt{s}=7\\,{\\rm TeV}$ are studied using 35${\\rm pb}^{-1}$ of data in 2010 and 370${\\rm pb}^{-1}$ of data in 2011 collected by the LHCb detector, and reported in this dissert...

    2003-01-01

    The study presented here pertains to the model-based analyses for production of some important charged secondaries in lead-lead and gold-gold collisions at AGS, SPS and RHIC energies. We examine the role of a particular version of the Sequential Chain Model (SCM) in interpreting the data on the production of only the secondary mesons of the most abundant variety in relativistic nucleus-nucleus collisions. The initial results derived for basic pp collisions have been transformed into the corresponding cases for nucleus-nucleus collisions through the appropriate physical-mathematical formalisms. The agreement between the model of choice and the measured data for the most important varieties of mesons in the two above-stated nuclear collisions could so far be rated to be barely modest. This is presumably due to our neglect of the effects of rescattering and cascading, while we choose to obtain only the first-order results in the initial attempt. (47 refs).

    Inclusive D* production is measured in deep-inelastic ep scattering at HERA with the H1 detector. In addition, the production of dijets in events with a D* meson is investigated. The analysis covers values of photon virtuality 2< Q^2 <=100 GeV^2 and of inelasticity 0.05<= y <= 0.7. Differential cross sections are measured as a function of Q^2 and x and of various D* meson and jet observables. Within the experimental and theoretical uncertainties all measured cross sections are found to be adequately described by next-to-leading order (NLO) QCD calculations, based on the photon-gluon fusion process and DGLAP evolution, without the need for an additional resolved component of the photon beyond what is included at NLO. A reasonable description of the data is also achieved by a prediction based on the CCFM evolution of partons involving the k_T-unintegrated gluon distribution of the proton.

  17. High energy deeply virtual Compton scattering on a photon and related meson exclusive production

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Machado, Magno V. T.

    2007-01-01

    In this work we estimate the differential cross section for the high energy deeply virtual Compton scattering on a photon target, γ*γ→γγ, within the QCD dipole-dipole scattering formalism. For the phenomenology, a saturation model for the dipole-dipole cross section for two photon scattering is considered. Its robustness is supported by a good description of current accelerator data. In addition, we consider the related exclusive vector meson production processes, γ*γ→Vγ. This analysis is focused on the light ρ and φ meson production, which produces larger cross sections. The phenomenological results are compared with the theoretical calculation using the color-dipole Balitsky-Fadin-Kuraev-Lipatov approach

    From events with two like-sign muons, or with three or four muons, observed in the NA3 spectrometer with 280 GeV/c incoming π - beam, we deduce upper limits on the production of beauty meson pairs Banti B. We use the leptonic branching ratios of B meson measured at CESR storage rings, and assume that no nuclear effects occur in the platinum target. We find sigma(Banti B) < 2 nb/nucleon for centrally produced Banti B pairs, and sigma(Banti B) < 10 nb/nucleon for a diffractive production. These values are one order of magnitude lower than previously published limits. As a consequence, the psipsi events observed in our experiment cannot come from Banti B decays. (orig.)

    Cross sections for production of BB-bar, B-barB*+B-bar*B, and B*B-bar* mesons (carrying b-quark quantum numbers) in e + e - annihilation are estimated and differential cross sections are evaluated. The cross sections for e + e - → e + e - eta/sub b/, e + e - → e + e - chi/sub b/, and e + e - → e + e - BB-bar are computed in the equivalent-photon approximation

    The electromagnetic creation of various exotic particles in ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions is discussed. The production of intermediate mass Higgs bosons of the minimal supersymmetric extension of the Standard Model is enhanced over the Standard Model Higgs boson formation for certain model parameter choices and as a consequence might be detectable at LCH and SSC. We also investigate the electromagnetic generation of supersymmetric fermions and bosons as well as glueballs, mesons and fermions. (orig.)

    Recent results from the experiments on φ-meson production in annihilation of stopped antiprotons have demonstrated significant (by a factor of 30-50) violation of the OZI rule. Experimental information on φ-meson production is discussed and possible theoretical explanations of the strong OZI rule violation as a manifestation of polarized intrinsic nucleon strangeness are reviewed. 70 refs., 6 figs., 2 tabs

  2. Vector meson production in pp collisions at $\\sqrt{s}=7 TeV$, measured with the ALICE detector

    Vector mesons are key probes of the hot and dense state of strongly interacting matter produced in heavy ion collisions. Their dileptonic decay channel is particularly suitable for these studies, since dileptons have negligible final state interactions in hadronic matter. A preliminary measurement of the $\\phi$ and $\\omega$ differential cross sections was performed by the ALICE experiment in pp collisions at $\\sqrt{s}=7$ TeV, through their decay in muon pairs. The $p_{\\rm T}$ and rapidity regions covered in this analysis are $p_{\\rm T}>1$ GeV$/c$ and $2.5 < y < 4$.

Feynman diagrams, meson theoretical nucleon-nucleon interactions, mesonic components in nuclear wave functions, direct observation of mesonic components in NN scattering above the pion production threshold, nuclear matter theory, and pion condensation are treated. 120 references

  4. Measurement of gluon polarization through spin asymmetry in the production of charmed mesons

    2005-09-01

    The main aim of the COMPASS experiment is the measurement of the gluon polarization in the nucleon, which can be accessed by the spin asymmetry in the scattering of a polarized muon beam on a polarized nucleon target. The process sensitive to the gluon polarization is the photon-gluon fusion, which can be tagged in the cleanest way by looking at the production of D 0 mesons. At COMPASS, D 0 mesons are reconstructed from the invariant mass of their decay products. However, it is a rare process, dominated by a large combinatorial background. This thesis presents some studies devoted to the improvement of the charmed mesons reconstruction. The measurement of the efficiency and the space resolution of the 3 drift chamber stations of the COMPASS spectrometer is a necessary step in understanding the performances of the reconstruction of particle trajectories. The hadron identification, which is fundamental in the reconstruction of charmed meson decay, is performed by a RICH detector. A statistical treatment of signal and background, together with an upgrade project to replace the present front-end electronics, have been developed in order to improve the particle identification performances. The second part of this work concerns the spin asymmetry measurement, which requires the application of event selection criteria in order to minimize the noise over signal ratio in the D 0 invariant mass, and the development of event-weighting methods to reduce the statistical error. This work presents a preliminary result, based on 2002-2004 statistics, which is the ΔG/G measurement from open charm production. Although the error bars are large, the measured gluon polarization is compatible with zero. Given the present accuracy, this result is compatible with the existing direct measurements from other channels. However, it does not allow to distinguish between different theoretical models.

    1979-01-01

    Technological improvements in accelerator design in the 1960's resulted in the capability to develop medium-energy proton accelerators with beam intensities of almost 1 mA. These beams are able to produce fluxes of secondary particles, including pions, muons, neutrinos, and neutrons, which are as much as 10,000 times as intense as those previously available. Those machines built for optimum meson production are commonly called meson factories. The characteristics of these facilities are reviewed, and the present programs in applied research, and some potential areas of future work are discussed

    The WASA-at-COSY collaboration uses meson production and the decays for the realization of the physics goals. Different rare decay channels of the mesons have to be analyzed in order to investigate symmetry breaking patterns. The combination of high intensity COSY (COoler SYnchrotron) beams and the WASA 4{pi} detector setup allows us to study the rare decay channels of light mesons. We are analyzing different symmetry breaking decay channels of {eta} mesons. One rare decay channel {eta}{yields}{pi}{sup + }{pi}{sup -} e{sup + }e{sup -} is being used to test CP violation. The asymmetry in the angle between the electron and pion planes can give insight about the degree of CP violation. The study of another rare decay channel {eta}{yields}{pi}{sup 0}e{sup + }e{sup -} is a test of C-parity violation. Our analysis of transition form factors of different mesons via conversion decays ({eta}{yields}{gamma}{gamma}{sup *}{yields}e{sup + }e{sup -} {gamma}, {omega}{yields}{pi}{sup 0}e{sup + }e{sup -}) provides insight about hadron structure. The transition form-factor of the {omega} meson provides information about the form factor in the time-like region where the two vector particles (the {omega} and the intermediate virtual photon) have an invariant mass squared will be discussed.

    We present an observation at LEP of the production of chi_c2 mesons in the collisions of two quasi-real photons using the OPAL detector. The chi_c2 mesons are reconstructed in the decay channel Chi_c2 to J/psi gamma to l+l- gamma (with l= e,mu) using all data taken at e+e- centre-of-mass energies of 91 and 183 GeV, corresponding to integrated luminosities of 167 and 55 pb-1 respectively. The two-photon width of the Chi_2 is determined to be 1.76 +- 0.47 +- 0.37 +- 0.15 keV where the first error is statistical, the second is systematic and the third comes from branching ratio uncertainties.

    The inclusive production of D^{*+-}(2010) mesons in deep-inelastic scattering is studied with the H1 detector at HERA. In the kinematic region 11.5 GeV and |\\eta_(D^*)|<1.5. Single and double differential inclusive D^(*+-) meson cross sections are compared to perturbative QCD calculations in two different evolution schemes. The charm contribution to the proton structure, F_2^c(x,Q^2), is determined by extrapolating the visible charm cross section to the full phase space. This contribution is found to rise from about 10% at Q^2 = 1.5 GeV^2 to more than 25% at Q^2 = 60 GeV^2 corresponding to x values ranging from 5*10^(-5) to 3*10^(-3)$.

  9. NLO QCD result for the gluon polarization from open charm $D^{0}$ meson production at COMPASS

    CERN Document Server

    Kurek, Krzysztof

    2011-01-01

    One of the main goals of the COMPASS experiment is the measurement of the gluon contribution to the nucleon spin. Among the processes studied by COMPASS, open- charm $D^{0}$ meson production seems to be the cleanest channel for probing gluons in the energy range covered by the experiment. The gluon polarisation is related to the measured asymmetry for charmed mesons production via the analyzing power (asymmetry at the partonic level) calculated in the perturbative QCD frame. The analyzing power for the "photon-gluon fusion" process corresponds to a LO QCD approximation. The signicant improvement of the statistical precision and the new, nal LO result are presented . The NLO QCD corrections to the partonic cross sections (unpolarised and polarized ones) are now also included into the analysis scheme since these higher order contributions are not negligible. The preliminary NLO QCD result on the gluon polarisation based on a set of measured $D^{0}$ meson asymmetries in kinematical bins of the $D^{0}$ energy amd...

    The contribution of pomeron fusion to the cross section of η and η ' productions in double-diffractive scattering has been calculated within the Donnachie-Landshoff model of pomeron. It is shown that the double pomeron exchange mechanism does not explain the full set of the recent data of WA102 Collaboration, though it might not be inconsistent with η ' productions

  12. Study of the production mechanism of the η meson in proton-proton collisions by means of analysing power measurements

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Czyzykiewicz, R.

    2007-02-01

    The analysing power measurements for the #vector#pp→ppη reaction studied in this dissertation are used in the determination of the reaction mechanism of the η meson production in nucleon-nucleon collisions. Measurements have been performed in the close-to-threshold energy region at beam momenta of p beam =2.010 and 2.085 GeV/c, corresponding to the excess energies of Q=10 and 36 MeV, respectively. The experiments were realised by means of a cooler synchrotron and storage ring COSY along with a cluster jet target. For registration of the reaction products the COSY-11 facility has been used. The identification of the η meson has been performed with the missing mass method. The results for the angular dependence of the analysing power combined with the hitherto determined isospin dependence of the total cross section for the η meson production in the nucleon-nucleon collisions, reveal a statistically significant indication that the excitation of the nucleon to the S 11 resonance, the process which intermediates the production of the η meson, is predominantly due to the exchange of a π meson between the colliding nucleons. The determined values of the analysing power at both excess energies are consistent with zero implying that the η meson is produced predominantly in the s-wave at both excess energies. (orig.)

    2009-01-01

    We investigate the pair production of S-wave heavy quarkonium at the LHC in the color-singlet mechanism (CSM) and estimate the contribution from the gluon fragmentation process in the color-octet mechanism (COM) for comparison. With the matrix elements extracted previously in the leading-order calculations, the numerical results show that the production rates are quite large for the pair production processes at the LHC. The p t distribution of double J/ψ production in the CSM is dominant over that in the COM when p t is smaller than about 10 GeV. For the production of double Υ, the contribution of the COM is always larger than that in the CSM. The large differences in the theoretical predictions between the CSM and COM for the p t distributions in the large p t region are useful in clarifying the effects of COM on the quarkonium production. We also investigate the pair production of S-wave B c and B c * mesons, and the measurement of these processes is useful to test the CSM and extract the long-distance matrix elements for the B c and B c * mesons. Aside from numerical calculations, analytical expressions for the production differential cross sections of all these processes are also given.

    A study of resonance production in central pp collisions is presented as a function of several kinematical variables. In particular the difference in the transverse momentum (dPT) of the exchanged particles shows that undisputed qqbar mesons are suppressed at small dPT whereas glueball candidates are enhanced and in addition, the azimuthal angle phi gives information on the nature of the Pomeron.

    Ilyasoglu, H.

    2017-01-01

    A structured lipid (SL) constituting omega fatty acids was synthesized by using linseed and grape seed oils as substrates via a lipase-catalyzed reaction. Lipozyme® TL IM was used as a biocatalyst. Good quadratic models predicting the incorporation of omega fatty acids were achieved via the Response surface methodology (RSM). The optimal conditions for targeted omega-6/omega-3 fatty acid ratio (2:1) were obtained at a substrate molar ratio 1.4, time 8.4 h, and enzyme amount 6.4%. The SL contained linoleic acid (43 g 100g-1), which was mainly located in the sn-2 position (40 g 100g-1). α-Linoleic acid, and α-linolenic acid at the sn-2 position were 22 g 100g-1, and 11 g 100g-1, respectively. The oxidative stability of the SL, and SL with antioxidants was also investigated. The produced SL may be proposed as a source of a balanced intake of omega fatty acids and an ingredient in functional food formulations. [es

    2017-01-01

    Exclusive photoproduction of vector mesons (Upsilon and Rho0) is studied with the large photon flux available in ultra-peripheral pPb collisions at sqrt(sNN) =5.02 TeV with CMS experiment. It provides a clean probe of the gluon distribution at small values of parton fractional momenta $x$ at centralrapidities ($y < 2.5$). The cross sections are measured as a function of the photon-proton centre-of-mass energy, extending the energy range explored by H1 and ZEUS Experiments at HERA. In addition, the differential cross sections (dsigma/dt), where $\\abs{t} \\approx p^2_T$ is the squared transverse momentum of produced vector mesons, are measured and the slope parameters are obtained. The results are compared to previous measurements and to theoretical predictions. Finally, prospect for further measurements of vector meson production that can be performed using the 2016 pPb collision data at 8 TeV to be collected at the end of the year are presented.

    We solve a five-channel mixing problem involving eta, eta', zeta(1275), iota(1440), and a new hypothetical high-mass pseudoscalar state between 1600 and 1900 MeV. We obtain the quark and glue content of iota(1440). We compare two solutions to the mixing problem with iota(1440) production and decay data, and with quark-model predictions for bare masses. In one solution the iota(1440) is primarily a glueball. This solution is preferred by the production and decay data. In the other solution the iota(1440) is a radially excited (ss-bar) state. This solution is preferred by the quark-model picture for the bare masses. We judge the weight of the combined evidence to favor the glueball interpretation

    Relativistic nuclear reactions with protons (deuterons) 8.0 GeV/c in the limiting fraamentation region (4-momentum transfer Q >= 1 GeV), with the particle production energy exceeding the nucleon-nucleon kinematical limit, were studied. The data acqusition, processing and analysis methods are presented along with experimental results like enerqy, angular distributions and A-mass dependence, carried out on DISC-2 Spectrometer (Dubna). Scale invariance character of the meson production, tells about local, pointlike interactions, interpreted like violent quark collisions. The quark structure functions of nuclei was obtained, proving the existence of multiquark states in nuclei. (author)

    The first measurements of the invariant differential cross sections of inclusive π 0 and η meson production with ALICE are presented for pp collisions at √(s) = 0.9 and 7 TeV. Next-to-Leading Order perturbative QCD calculations overestimate the data at √(s) = 7TeV, but are consistent with the π 0 spectrum at √(s) = 0.9TeV and with the measured π 0 /η cross section ratio at √(s) = 7TeV. The nuclear modification factors (R AA ) of π 0 production at different centralities show a strong suppression with respect to pp collisions.

    2002-01-01

    The experiment is aimed at:\\\\ a)\tthe search for neutral mesons and glueballs produced in central hadron-proton collisions and, simultaneously, \\\\b)\tthe study of inclusive hadronic production of neutral heavy quark mesons. \\\\ \\\\These states are observed through their decay into many photons in the 4092-cell electromagnetic Calorimeter GAMS-4000. \\\\ \\\\The NAl2 setup is supplemented with a forward magnetic spectrometer equiped with multiwire Proportional chambers (MWPC) and newly developed microstrip gas chambers (MSGC).

    Extraction techniques to extract fish oil from various types of fish are numerous but not widely accepted because of the use of chemicals that may be harmful to health. In this study, fish oil is extracted using a technique of Microwave-Assisted Extraction, which uses only water. The optimum conditions required for the production of fish oil for extraction is carried out by examining three parameters such as microwave power (300-700W), extraction time (10-30 min) and amount of water used (70-190ml). Optimum conditions were determined after using design of experiments (DOE). The optimum condition obtained was 300 W for microwave power, 10 minutes extraction time and 190 milliliter amounts of water used. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) was used to analyze the functional groups of fish oil. Two types of fish such as Jade Perch or UniMAP Puyu and Indian Mackerel were used. A standard omega-3 oil sample (Blackmores) purchased from pharmacy was also determined to confirm the presence of omega-3 oil in these fishes. Similar compounds were present in Jade Perch and Indian Mackerel as compared to the standard. Therefore, there were presence of omega-3 fish oil in the two types of fish. From this study, omega-3 in UniMAP Puyu fish was higher compared to Indian Mackerel fish. However, based on the FTIR analysis, besides the presence of omega-3, the two fishes also contain other functional groups such as alkanes, alkenes, aldehyde, ketones and many others. The yield of fish oil for the Jade Perch was low compared to Indian Mackerel which was 9% while Indian Mackerel was 10 %.

    Heterotrophic growth of thraustochytrids has potential in co-producing a feedstock for biodiesel and long-chain (LC, {>=}C{sub 20}) omega-3 oils. Biodiscovery of thraustochytrids from Tasmania (temperate) and Queensland (tropical), Australia, covered a biogeographic range of habitats including fresh, brackish, and marine waters. A total of 36 thraustochytrid strains were isolated and separated into eight chemotaxonomic groups (A-H) based on fatty acid (FA) and sterol composition which clustered closely with four different genera obtained by 18S rDNA molecular identification. Differences in the relative proportions (%FA) of long-chain C{sub 20}, C{sub 22}, omega-3, and omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), including docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), docosapentaenoic acid, arachidonic acid, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and saturated FA, as well as the presence of odd-chain PUFA (OC-PUFA) were the major factors influencing the separation of these groups. OC-PUFA were detected in temperate strains of groups A, B, and C (Schizochytrium and Thraustochytrium). Group D (Ulkenia) had high omega-3 LC-PUFA (53% total fatty acids (TFA)) and EPA up to 11.2% TFA. Strains from groups E and F (Aurantiochytrium) contained DHA levels of 50-61% TFA after 7 days of growth in basal medium at 20 C. Groups G and H (Aurantiochytrium) strains had high levels of 15:0 (20-30% TFA) and the sum of saturated FA was in the range of 32-51%. {beta},{beta}-Carotene, canthaxanthin, and astaxanthin were identified in selected strains. Phylogenetic and chemotaxonomic groupings demonstrated similar patterns for the majority of strains. Our results demonstrate the potential of these new Australian thraustochytrids for the production of biodiesel in addition to omega-3 LC-PUFA-rich oils. (orig.)

    1980-01-01

    Neutral and charged D meson production cross sections were measured at center of mass energies between 3.9 GeV and 7.4 GeV. The quantity R/sub D/ (= [sigma/sub (D + D- + sigma/sub (D 0 - anti D 0 )]/2 sigma/sub μ + μ - /) is equal to 2 at 4 GeV and 4.4 GeV and about equal to 1 elsewhere. R/sub D/ + 2.5 approximately equals R(sigma/sub hadrons/sigma/sub μ + μ - /) at all energies. The exclusive cross section for e + e - annihilation into D anti D, D*anti D, and D*anti D* were measured at center of mass energies between 3.9 GeV and 4.3 GeV sigma/sub D*anti D*/ decreases with increasing center of mass energy from 6.6 +- 1.3 nb near 4 GeV to 3.6 +- .9 nb near 4.3 GeV. Sigma/sub D*anti D*/ also decreases from 4.2 +- .9 nb to 1.8 +- .6 nb over the same energy region. Sigma/sub D anti D/ is less than 0.5 +- .3 nb at all energies. The branching fractions for D* + and D* were measured. At 5.2 GeV, the D meson differential cross section is well described by phase space for e + e - → D anti Dππ or D*anti D*ππ. Sd sigma/dz was parameterized as A(l-z)/sup n/ with n = 0.9 +- .4. Quasi-two-body production accounts for less than 20% of the total D cross section. No evidence was found for associated charmed baryon-D meson production. An upper limit of 0.4 nb (90% confidence level) was determined for associated production

    1997-05-01

    This dissertation presents a study of strange vector meson production, "leading particle" effect and a first direct measurement of the strangeness suppression parameter in hadronic decays of the neutral electroweak boson, Z. The measurements were performed in e+e- collisions at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) with the SLC Large Detector (SLD) experiment. A new generation particle ID system, the SLD Cerenkov Ring Imaging Detector (CRID) is used to discriminate kaons from pions, enabling the reconstruction of the vector mesons over a wide momentum range. The inclusive production rates of ρ and K*0 and the differential rates versus momentum were measured and are compared with those of other experiments and theoretical predictions. The high longitudinal polarisation of the SLC electron beam is used in conjunction with the electroweak quark production asymmetries to separate quark jets from antiquark jets. K*0 production is studied separately in these samples, and the results show evidence for the "leading particle" effect. The difference between K*0 production rates at high momentum in quark and antiquark jets yields a first direct measurement of strangeness suppression in jet fragmentation.

  13. Production of high energy η' in B meson decays from BaBar experiment

    Hicheur, A.

    2003-04-01

    The work presented in this thesis relies on the analysis of data collected between october 1999 and July 2002 by the BaBar experiment at the PEP-II collider located at SLAC (Stanford, California). Electron-positron collisions at a center of mass energy equal to the Υ(4S) resonance mass are used for the production of B meson pairs. In July 2001, the BaBar collaboration published the first measurement of CP violation in the neutral B mesons system. Since then, the precision of the measurement has been continually being improved with the increasing data sample. Two devices are dedicated to the reconstruction of charged particles: the Silicon Vertex Tracker and the Drift Chamber. The Silicon Vertex Tracker is crucial for the reconstruction of the B meson decay vertex. Its motion with regard to the Drift Chamber needs a rolling calibration of the corresponding alignment parameters roughly every two hours. The relation between the Drift Chamber geometry and the alignment has been studied. Beside CP violation, Heavy Flavour Physics is an other important issue of BaBar research program. Rare decays are of particular interest as they are sensible to a new physics beyond the Standard Model. The production of high energy η' in B decays has been studied through the two main contributions, B→ η' X s coming from the rare decay b → sg*, and B-bar 0 → η'D 0 coming from the internal tree color suppressed decay b → cud. The improvement of the measurement of the process B → η'X-s and the first. observation of the decay B-bar 0 → η'D 0 have led to the conclusion that the η' production is dominated by the decay b → sg* and enables to constrain its quark content.

    2012-12-01

    Measurements of charm production in deep-inelastic scattering at HERA at a centre-of-mass energy of 318 GeV are reported in this thesis. The analysis was performed using the data collected with the ZEUS detector during the years 2004 to 2007, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 363 pb -1 . The production of charm quarks was studied through the full kinematic reconstruction of D* ± mesons in the decay channel D* ± → D 0 / anti D 0 π ± . The studies have been performed for virtualities of the exchanged photon of 5 2 2 and inelasticities of 0.02 ± kinematic phase space is defined by the transverse momentum range, 1.5 T D* ± D* ± vertical stroke ± mesons. The total visible cross section for D* ± production as well as single-and double-differential cross sections were measured and compared to the corresponding D* ± measurements performed by the H1 collaboration in the same phase-space region. The measurements are well described by NLO QCD predictions. The double-differential cross sections were exploited to extract the charm contribution to the proton structure function, F 2 c anti c , expressed in terms of the reduced charm-production cross sections, σ red c anti c , and compared to the predictions from HERAPDF1.5 and to the recent measurements from the H1 and ZEUS collaborations.

    Preliminary results on the cross section ratios of exclusive ρ 0 and φ meson production off carbon, calcium, and lead to that off deuterium in deep-inelastic muon-nucleon scattering are reported. The data were taken with the E665 spectrometer using the Fermilab Tevatron muon beam. The mean beam energy was 470 GeV. Significant increase in the cross section ratios is seen as the four-momentum squared of the virtual photon increases. The results support the idea of color transparency

    In this talk we present a perturbative QCD improved parton model calculation for light meson production in high energy heavy ion collisions. In order to describe the experimental data properly, one needs to augment the standard pQCD model by the transverse momentum distribution of partons ("intrinsic k/sub T/"). Proton-nucleus data indicate the presence of nuclear shadowing and multi-scattering effects. Further corrections are needed in nucleus-nucleus collisions to explain the observed reduction of the cross section. We introduce the idea of proton dissociation and compare our calculations with the SPS and RHIC experimental data. (18 refs).

    The first measurements of φ meson production in Au-Au collisions at AGS energies are presented via the decay to K + K - . A measurement of the centrality dependence of the yield shows an increase similar to that seen for the K - with a spectral shape consistent with a relativistic Breit-Wigner distribution within the statistical errors of the present data set. Future analysis using the full data set with 4 times the statistics will allow a more accurate determination of the yields, slopes and spectral shapes

    We present predictions for the inclusive productions of the D meson originating from bottom hadrons at the CERN LHC in the general-mass variable-flavour-number scheme at next-to-leading order. We present results using two methods to describe the transition for b{yields}D: a two-step transition b{yields}B{yields}D, based on the b{yields}B fragmentation functions and the spectra for B{yields}D as measured by CLEO and a one-step transition based on the fragmentation functions for b{yields}D. The results of both approaches are compared.

    Experiments on light meson production and pp-bremsstrahlung as planned for the initial stage at COSY are discussed. Special emphasis will be placed on near-threshold behaviour where due to kinematics all particles are forced into a rather narrow cone around the beam axis. A specially designed charged particle detector system will be used which not only covers the complete forward hemisphere of 2π in the laboratory system but additionally shows maximum resolution in the extreme forward direction with only moderate cuts in the minimally required energy of all ejectiles.

    We present the first measurement of the gluon polarisation in the nucleon based on the photon-gluon fusion process tagged by charmed meson production and decay to charged K and pi. The data were collected in polarised muon scattering off a polarised deuteron target by the COMPASS collaboration at CERN during 2002-2004. The result of this LO analysis is _x = -0.47 +- 0.44 (stat) +- 0.15 (syst) at ~= 0.11 and a scale mu^2 ~ 13 (GeV/c)^2.

    K{sup +} mesons produced by the internal proton beam of Saturne have been identified by means of scintillation and Cerenkov counters. The production cross sections are given per target nucleus measured at a laboratory angle of 35 deg. as well as the cross section relative to {pi}{sup +} mesons of the same momentum for: - incident protons of kinetic energy between 1.3 and 2.8 GeV, - targets of C, Cu and Pb, - K{sup +} produced with kinetic energies between 0.45 and 0.65 GeV. From these results we have tried to deduce the importance of indirect production by intermediate {pi} mesons with respect to direct production by proton-nucleon collisions.

    The vacuum phenomenology obtained within the so-called extended Linear Sigma Model (eLSM) is presented. The eLSM Lagrangian is constructed by including from the very beginning vector and axial-vector d.o.f., and by requiring dilatation invariance and chiral symmetry. After a general introduction of the approach, particular attention is devoted to the latest results. In the mesonic sector the strong decays of the scalar and the pseudoscalar glueballs, the weak decays of the tau lepton into vector and axial-vector mesons, and the description of masses and decays of charmed mesons are shown. In the baryonic sector the omega production in proton-proton scattering and the inclusion of baryons with strangeness are described.

    We discuss the prospects for observing the mass of {rho}- and {omega}-mesons around nuclear matter density by studying their coherent photoproduction in nuclear targets and subsequent in-medium decay into e{sup +}e{sup -}pairs. The quantum interference of {rho} and {omega}-mesons in the e{sup +}e{sup -}channel and the interference between Bethe-Heitler pairs and dielectrons from vector meson decays are of particular interest.

    We extend our previous studies of double-parton scattering (DPS) to simultaneous production of c c ¯ and b b ¯ and production of two pairs of b b ¯. The calculation is performed within a factorized ansatz. Each parton scattering is calculated within the kT-factorization approach. The hadronization is done with the help of fragmentation functions. Production of D mesons in our framework was tested in our previous works. Here, we present our predictions for B mesons. A good agreement is achieved with the LHCb data. We present our results for c c ¯b b ¯ and b b ¯b b ¯ final states. For completeness, we compare results for double- and single-parton scattering (SPS). As for the c c ¯c c ¯ final state, the DPS dominates over the SPS, especially for small transverse momenta. We present several distributions and integrated cross sections with realistic cuts for simultaneous production of D0B+ and B+B+, suggesting future experimental studies at the LHC.

    OAK A271 PRODUCTION OF HIGHER STRENGTH THIN WALLED GLOW DISCHARGE POLYMER SHELLS FOR CRYOGENIC EXPERIMENTS AT OMEGA. Thin walled polymer shells are needed for OMEGA cryogenic laser experiments. These capsules need to be about 900 (micro)m in diameter and as thin as possible (approx 1-2 (micro)m), while having enough strength to be filled with DT as fast as possible to about 1000 atm. The authors have found that by optimizing the coating parameters in the glow discharge polymer (GDP) deposition system, traditionally used for making ICF targets, they can routinely make robust, ∼ 1.5 (micro)m thick, 900 (micro)m diameter GDP shells with buckle strengths of over 0.3 atm. This is twice the strength of shells made prior to the optimization and is comparable to values quoted for polyimide shells. In addition, these shells were found to be approximately three times more permeable and over 20% denser than previously made GDP shells. The combination of higher strength and permeability is ideal for direct drive cryogenic targets at OMEGA. Shells as thin as 0.5 (micro)m have been made. In this paper, the authors discuss the shell fabrication process, effects of modifying various GDP deposition parameters on shell properties and chemical composition

    Full Text Available Tagged jet measurements in high energy hadronic and nuclear reactions provide constraints on the energy and parton flavor origin of the parton shower that recoils against the tagging particle. Such additional insight can be especially beneficial in illuminating the mechanisms of heavy flavor production in proton–proton collisions at the LHC and their modification in the heavy ion environment, which are not fully understood. With this motivation, we present theoretical results for isolated-photon-tagged and B-meson-tagged b-jet production at sNN=5.1 TeV for comparison to the upcoming lead–lead data. We find that photon-tagged b-jets exhibit smaller momentum imbalance shift in nuclear matter, and correspondingly smaller energy loss, than photon-tagged light flavor jets. Our results show that B-meson tagging is most effective in ensuring that the dominant fraction of recoiling jets originate from prompt b-quarks. Interestingly, in this channel the large suppression of the cross section is not accompanied by a significant momentum imbalance shift.

    Inclusive D{sup *{+-}} production is measured in deep-inelastic ep scattering at HERA with the H1 detector. In addition, the production of dijets in events with a D{sup *{+-}} meson is investigated. The analysis covers values of photon virtuality 2{<=}Q{sup 2}{<=}100 GeV{sup 2} and of inelasticity 0.05{<=}y{<=}0.7. Differential cross sections are measured as a function of Q{sup 2} and x and of various D{sup *{+-}} meson and jet observables. Within the experimental and theoretical uncertainties all measured cross sections are found to be adequately described by next-to-leading order (NLO) QCD calculations, based on the photon-gluon fusion process and DGLAP evolution, without the need for an additional resolved component of the photon beyond what is included at NLO. A reasonable description of the data is also achieved by a prediction based on the CCFM evolution of partons involving the k{sub T}-unintegrated gluon distribution of the proton. (orig.)

    Charm production in deep inelastic scattering has been measured with the ZEUS detector at HERA using an integrated luminosity of 82 pb{sup -1}. Charm has been tagged by reconstructing D{sup *+}, D{sup 0}, D{sup +} and D{sup +}{sub s} (+c.c.) charm mesons. The charm hadrons were measured in the kinematic range p{sub T}(D{sup *+},D{sup 0},D{sup +})>3 GeV, p{sub T}(D{sup +}{sub s})>2 GeV and vertical stroke {eta}(D) vertical stroke <1.6 for 1.5production cross sections were used to extract charm fragmentation ratios and the fraction of c quarks hadronising into a particular charm meson in the kinematic range considered. The cross sections were compared to the predictions of next-to-leading-order QCD, and extrapolated to the full kinematic region in p{sub T}(D) and {eta}(D) in order to determine the open-charm contribution, F{sup c} {sup anti} {sup c}{sub 2}(x,Q{sup 2}), to the proton structure function F{sub 2}.

    We present first measurements of the phi-meson elliptic flow (v2(pT)) and high-statistics pT distributions for different centralities from radical sNN=200 GeV Au+Au collisions at RHIC. In minimum bias collisions the v2 of the phi meson is consistent with the trend observed for mesons. The ratio of the yields of the Omega to those of the phi as a function of transverse momentum is consistent with a model based on the recombination of thermal s quarks up to pT approximately 4 GeV/c, but disagrees at higher momenta. The nuclear modification factor (R CP) of phi follows the trend observed in the K S 0 mesons rather than in Lambda baryons, supporting baryon-meson scaling. These data are consistent with phi mesons in central Au+Au collisions being created via coalescence of thermalized s quarks and the formation of a hot and dense matter with partonic collectivity at RHIC.

    We have measured the inclusive production properties of D and anti D mesons produced from pp interations at √s = 27.4 GeV. The differential production cross section is well represented by the empirical form d 2 σdx F /dP T 2 = 1/2 [σ(D/anti D)(n+1) b](1-vertical strokex F vertical stroke) n exp(-bp T 2 ) with n = 4.9±0.5, b = (1.0±0.1) (GeV/c) -2 , and the inclusive D/anti D cross section σ(D/anti D) is (30.2±3.3) μb. The QCD fusion model predicts D/anti D production which is in good agreement with our data except for the magnitude of the cross section which depends sensitively on the assumed mass of the charm quark.

    The production of $\\Upsilon$ mesons in $pp$ collisions at $\\sqrt=7$ and $8\\,\\mathrm{TeV}$ is studied with the LHCb detector using data samples corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $1\\,\\mathrm{fb}^{-1}$ and $2\\,\\mathrm{fb}^{-1}$ respectively. The production cross-sections and ratios of cross-sections are measured as functions of the meson transverse momentum $p_T$ and rapidity $y$ , for $p_T<30\\,\\mathrm{GeV}/c$ and $2.0 < y < 4.5$.

  16. Improvement of the drift chamber system in the SAPHIR detector and first measurements of the Φ meson production at threshold

    The SAPHIR detector at ELSA enables the measurement of photon induced Φ meson production from threshold up to 3 GeV in the full kinematical range. A considerable improvement of the drift chamber system is a precondition of gaining the necessary data rate in an acceptable time. The research focuses attention on the choice of the chamber gas and on a different mechanical construction, so as to minimize the negative influences of the photon beam crossing the sensitive volume of the drift chamber system. In addition, first preliminary results of the total and the differential cross section for the Φ meson production close to threshold were evaluated. (orig.)

  17. Energy and system size dependence of phi meson production in Cu+Cu and Au+Au collisions

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    STAR Coll

    2008-10-28

    We study the beam-energy and system-size dependence of {phi} meson production (using the hadronic decay mode {phi} {yields} K{sup +}K{sup -}) by comparing the new results from Cu + Cu collisions and previously reported Au + Au collisions at {radical}s{sub NN} = 62.4 and 200 GeV measured in the STAR experiment at RHIC. Data presented are from midrapidity (|y| < 0.5) for 0.4 < p{sub T} < 5 GeV/c. At a given beam energy, the transverse momentum distributions for {phi} mesons are observed to be similar in yield and shape for Cu + Cu and Au + Au colliding systems with similar average numbers of participating nucleons. The {phi} meson yields in nucleus-nucleus collisions, normalized by the average number of participating nucleons, are found to be enhanced relative to those from p + p collisions with a different trend compared to strange baryons. The enhancement for {phi} mesons is observed to be higher at {radical}s{sub NN} = 200 GeV compared to 62.4 GeV. These observations for the produced {phi}(s{bar s}) mesons clearly suggest that, at these collision energies, the source of enhancement of strange hadrons is related to the formation of a dense partonic medium in high energy nucleus-nucleus collisions and cannot be alone due to canonical suppression of their production in smaller systems.

    Inclusive production cross sections are measured in deep inelastic scattering at HERA for meson states composed of a charm quark and a light antiquark or the charge conjugate. The measurements cover the kinematic region of photon virtuality 2 2.5 GeV and pseudorapidity |eta(D)| < 1.5. The identification of the D-meson decays and the reduction of the combinatorial background profit from the reconstruction of displaced secondary vertices by means of the H1 silicon vertex detector. The production of charmed mesons containing the light quarks u, d and s is found to be compatible with a description in which the hard scattering is followed by a factorisable and universal hadronisation process.

    2007-01-01

    We present an estimate of the cross-section for the exclusive production of a ρ L 0 -meson pair in e + e - scattering, which will be studied in the future high-energy International Linear Collider. For this aim, we complete calculations of the Born order approximation of the amplitudes γ * L,T (Q 1 2 )γ * L,T (Q 2 2 )→ρ L 0 ρ L 0 , for arbitrary polarization of virtual photons and longitudinally polarized mesons, in the kinematical region s>>-t,Q 1 2 ,Q 2 2 . These processes are completely calculable in the hard region Q 1 2 ,Q 2 2 >>Λ 2 QCD , and we perform most of the calculations in an analytical way. The resulting cross-section turns out to be large enough for this process to be measurable with foreseen luminosity and energy, for Q 1 2 and Q 2 2 in the range of a few GeV 2 . (orig.)

    A measurement is presented of the cross section for D* meson production in diffractive deep-inelastic scattering for the first time at HERA. The cross section is given for the process ep -> eXY, where the system X contains at least one D* meson and is separated by a large rapidity gap from a low mass proton remnant system Y. The cross section is presented in the diffractive deep-inelastic region defined by 2 2 GeV and |\\eta_D* | < 1.5. The cross section is found to be 246+-54+-56 pb and forms about 6% of the corresponding inclusive D* cross section. The cross section is presented as a function of various kinematic variables, including z_pom^obs which is an estimate of the fraction of the momentum of the diffractive exchange carried by the parton entering the hard-subprocess. The data show a large component of the cross section at low z_pom^obs where the contribution of the Boson-Gluon-Fusion process is expected to dominate. The data are compared with several QCD--based calculations.

    AUTHOR|(CDS)2239688; Khoukaz, Alfons

    In this thesis pp-collisions at $\\sqrt{s}$ = 7 TeV are simulated using PYTHIA and the produced omega-mesons are reconstructed via the $\\omega \\to \\pi^+\\pi^-\\pi^0$ decay-channel. By using further simulations of single omega-mesons, kinematic angle cuts are extracted and applied to the simulation data in order to check, whether or not the reconstruction can be improved.

  2. Study of D(1285) → K+K-π0 decay and D(1285)- and E(1420)-mesons production in exclusive reactions, induced by π-- and K--mesons at 32.5 GeV/c

    D(1285) and E(1420)-mesons production in charge-exchange reactions induced by π - and K - -mesons at 32.5 GeV/c has been studied. The measured cross sections allowed one to derive limitations for the mixing angle in the axial-vector meson nonet. This means that E(1420)-meson consists mainly of strange quarks. The invariant mass distribution for the kaon pair in D(1285) → K + K - π 0 decay with statistics by an order of magnitude higher than the available data was obtained. The differential spectrum dN/dmsub(Ksup(+)Ksub(-)) analysis carried out in the delta-dominance model shows that delta(980)-meson cannot be described as a Breit-Wigner resonance with small width. The effective width for delta-meson at the point of √s=1 GeV/c 2 GITAsub(delta) is greater than 180 MeV/c 2 . It points to a strong coupling of delta-meson to hadrons

    The first measurements of the invariant differential cross sections of inclusive {pi}{sup 0} and {eta} meson production with ALICE are presented for pp collisions at {radical}(s) = 0.9 and 7 TeV. Next-to-Leading Order perturbative QCD calculations overestimate the data at {radical}(s) = 7TeV, but are consistent with the {pi}{sup 0} spectrum at {radical}(s) = 0.9TeV and with the measured {pi}{sup 0}/{eta} cross section ratio at {radical}(s) = 7TeV. The nuclear modification factors (R{sub AA}) of {pi}{sup 0} production at different centralities show a strong suppression with respect to pp collisions.

  4. Measurement of D*{sup {+-}} meson production in deep-inelastic scattering at HERA

    Measurements of charm production in deep-inelastic scattering at HERA at a centre-of-mass energy of 318 GeV are reported in this thesis. The analysis was performed using the data collected with the ZEUS detector during the years 2004 to 2007, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 363 pb{sup -1}. The production of charm quarks was studied through the full kinematic reconstruction of D*{sup {+-}} mesons in the decay channel D*{sup {+-}} {yields} D{sup 0}/ anti D{sup 0}{pi}{sup {+-}}. The studies have been performed for virtualities of the exchanged photon of 5 < Q{sup 2} < 1000 GeV{sup 2} and inelasticities of 0.02 < y < 0.7. The visible D*{sup {+-}} kinematic phase space is defined by the transverse momentum range, 1.5 < p{sub T}{sup D*{sup {+-}}} < 20 GeV, and by the pseudorapidity region, vertical stroke {eta}{sup D*{sup {+-}}} vertical stroke < 1.5, of the produced D*{sup {+-}} mesons. The total visible cross section for D*{sup {+-}} production as well as single-and double-differential cross sections were measured and compared to the corresponding D*{sup {+-}} measurements performed by the H1 collaboration in the same phase-space region. The measurements are well described by NLO QCD predictions. The double-differential cross sections were exploited to extract the charm contribution to the proton structure function, F{sub 2}{sup c} {sup anti} {sup c}, expressed in terms of the reduced charm-production cross sections, {sigma}{sub red}{sup c} {sup anti} {sup c}, and compared to the predictions from HERAPDF1.5 and to the recent measurements from the H1 and ZEUS collaborations.

  5. The Spectator-Induced Electromagnetic Effect on Meson Production in Nucleus-Nucleus Collisions at SPS Energies

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Rybicki Andrzej

    2012-12-01

    Full Text Available The electromagnetic interaction between the spectator system and the charged mesons produced in the course of the high energy heavy ion collision was studied experimentally and theoretically in earlier works [1,2]. This effect was found to result in very large distortions of the final state spectra of the produced mesons [3] and to bring new information on the space-time evolution of the non-perturbative meson production process [4]. In this paper a more extended analysis of this effect will be presented, including a comparative study between charged meson spectra produced in Pb+Pb collisions as well as collisions of Pb ions with smaller nuclei. The experimental results will be compared with Monte Carlo simulations, giving a fair overall understanding of the interplay between the strong and the electromagnetic interaction in the heavy ion collision. A universal behaviour of charged meson spectra emerges from the above comparative study. This gives a unique chance of using the spectator charge as a tool to study the space-time evolution of the high energy nucleus-nucleus reaction.

  6. Charm Meson Production in Au-Au Collisions at √ SNN = 200 Gev at Rhic

    Vanfossen, Joseph A., Jr.

    This research work is in the field of experimental nuclear physics, more specifically, the analysis of data taken with the Solenoidal Tracker at RHIC (STAR) apparatus at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) located at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL). There, we accelerate and collide beams of heavy ions (e.g. gold nuclei) at relativistic velocities. The collisions of heavy nuclei in the STAR Experiment compress nuclear matter to high densities, and heat it to extreme temperatures, over one trillion degrees Celsius. Under such conditions, Lattice QCD and other phenomeno- logical models predict a phase transition in nuclear matter, a transition, where quarks and gluons become deconfined, i.e. they freely move throughout the interaction volume and are no longer confined to individual nucleons, forming Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP), a new state of nuclear matter. The study of QGP, its properties and dynamics, will provide a better understanding of QCD, the strong force, and of the history of the early universe. Mesons containing heavy flavor (charm and bottom) quarks can be used in QGP searches. Heavy quarks are produced mainly in the early stages of a collisions via energetic parton-parton interactions; heavy flavor production in QGP or during hadronization is suppressed due to the high masses of the quarks. Heavy quarks can therefore be used to probe the whole evolution of the system and as a calibrated tool to better understand the nature of the early, hot matter formed in the collisions. A key finding by the experiments at RHIC is the anomalously low production of heavy flavor at high transverse momentum values. This was found by measuring the yields of the decay electrons from mesons containing either charm or bottom quarks. These measurements suffer from very large combinatorial backgrounds and conceal the parent's kinematic properties. A suppression of particle production at high transverse momenta is likely caused by their interaction with the hot and

    Meson production near threshold has been studied at the SPES4 spectrometer at SATURNE using the pd → 3HeX missing mass reaction. Differential cross sections in the CM system for ω, η ' and φ are less than 1 nb/sr. The observed φ cross section is surprisingly large at threshold and clearly violates the naive OZI rule. No clear signals were obtained at the K anti K thresholds. The measurements can be extended to study broader mesons like f 0 and a 0 . (authors). 8 refs., 2 figs., 1 tab

    An invariant differential cross section measurement of inclusive π 0 and η meson production at mid-rapidity in pp collisions at √{s}=8 TeV was carried out by the ALICE experiment at the LHC. The spectra of π 0 and η mesons were measured in transverse momentum ranges of 0.33.5 GeV/c . However, a deviation from this empirical scaling rule is observed for transverse momenta below p_{ T } <3.5 GeV/c in the η /π ^0 ratio with a significance of 6.2σ.

  9. Production of the excited charm mesons D1 and D*2 at HERA

    2012-08-01

    The production of the excited charm mesons D 1 (2420) and D * 2 (2460) in ep collisions has been measured with the ZEUS detector at HERA using an integrated luminosity of 373 pb -1 . The masses of the neutral and charged states, the widths of the neutral states, and the helicity parameter of D 1 (2420) 0 were determined and compared with other measurements and with theoretical expectations. The measured helicity parameter of the D 0 1 allows for some mixing of S- and D-waves in its decay to D *± π -+ . The result is also consistent with a pure D-wave decay. Ratios of branching fractions of the two decay modes of the D * 2 (2460) 0 and D * 2 (2460) ± states were measured and compared with previous measurements. The fractions of charm quarks hadronising into D 1 and D * 2 were measured and are consistent with those obtained in e + e - annihilations.

    We study the pair-production of heavy mesons in proton-antiproton annihilations within a perturbative QCD-motivated framework. In particular we investigate p p-bar → D0D 0 within a double handbag approach, where a hard subprocess factorizes from soft hadronic matrix elements. The soft matrix elements can be parametrized by transition distribution amplitudes, which are off-diagonal in flavor space. The transition distribution amplitudes are modelled as overlaps of light-cone wave functions. We obtain rather robust model results for p p-bar → D0D 0 cross sections, which are expected to be measured at the future PANDA detector at GSI-FAIR.

    2007-04-01

    Charm production in deep inelastic scattering has been measured with the ZEUS detector at HERA using an integrated luminosity of 82 pb -1 . Charm has been tagged by reconstructing D *+ , D 0 , D + and D + s (+c.c.) charm mesons. The charm hadrons were measured in the kinematic range p T (D *+ ,D 0 ,D + )>3 GeV, p T (D + s )>2 GeV and vertical stroke η(D) vertical stroke 2 2 and 0.02 T (D) and η(D) in order to determine the open-charm contribution, F c anti c 2 (x,Q 2 ), to the proton structure function F 2 .

    Different π and η meson production channels in proton-proton and proton-deuteron collisions have been studied at the CELSIUS storage ring using an internal cluster-jet target setup [1]. During the last years more emphasis has been put on ππ and all but one of the possible channels in proton-proton collisions have been studied. Recently also the quasi-free p+n→d+η reaction cross section has been measured at threshold using 1295 MeV protons and target deuterium. Excess energies from threshold to 10 MeV in the center of mass of the final dη system were covered. Approaching the threshold the cross section is enhanced compared to phase-space expectations. This behaviour is typical for a strong final-state interaction

    The light vector mesons ($\\rho$, $\\omega$, and $\\phi$) were produced in deuterium, carbon, titanium, and iron targets in a search for possible in-medium modifications to the properties of the $\\rho$ meson at normal nuclear densities and zero temperature. The vector mesons were detected with the CEBAF Large Acceptance Spectrometer (CLAS) via their decays to $e^{+}e^{-}$. The rare leptonic decay was chosen to reduce final-state interactions. A combinatorial background was subtracted from the invariant mass spectra using a well-established event-mixing technique. The $\\rho$ meson mass spectrum was extracted after the $\\omega$ and $\\phi$ signals were removed in a nearly model-independent way. Comparisons were made between the $\\rho$ mass spectra from the heavy targets ($A > 2$) with the mass spectrum extracted from the deuterium target. With respect to the $\\rho$-meson mass, we obtain a small shift compatible with zero. Also, we measure widths consistent with standard nuclear many-body eff

    The aim of the experiment is to study beauty particles production and decay in a 350~GeV negative pion beam, using a scintillating optical fibre target in conjunction with a silicon microstrip telescope and the Omega spectrometer.\\\\ \\\\ A multiparticle high $p _{T}$ ~trigger together with an impact parameter trigger and muon selection is employed to enrich the $ B \\bar{B} $ ~signal. An automatic system of reconstructing tracks and vertices has been developed to select beauty decay topologies. A 50~day run should yield about 200~ $ B \\bar{B} $ events per nanobarn. \\\\ \\\\ Fast, high resolution micro-tracking has been realized with the scintillating fibre detector, but some technical problems are still under study. \\\\ \\\\ The collaboration is continuing with the R&D programme and at the same time has joined with the WA82 collaboration in a common proposal to study beauty production and decay with the Omega spectrometer using the better-known technique of silicon microstrip (this is approved as WA92).

    In this paper we revisit the double vector meson production in γγ interactions at heavy ion collisions and present, by the first time, predictions for the ρρ and J/ΨJ/Ψ production in proton.nucleus and proton.proton collisions. In order to obtain realistic predictions for rapidity distributions and total cross sections for the double vector production in ultra peripheral hadronic collisions we take into account the description of γγ → VV cross section at lowenergies as well as its behavior at large energies, associated to the gluonic interaction between the color dipoles. Our results demonstrate that the double ρ production is dominated by the low energy behavior of the γγ → VV cross section. In contrast, for the double J/Ψ production, the contribution associated to the description of the QCD dynamics at high energies contributes significantly, mainly in pp collisions. Predictions for the RHIC, LHC, FCC, and CEPC-SPPC energies are shown. (orig.)

    The available energy at accelerators of SPS Type, implies the development of new experimental technics and firet of all their optimization by simulation program. A set of programs has been written to evaluate and improve the performances of the spectrometer EHS (European Hybrid Spectrometer) at C.E.R.N. In 1979, the main components of the spectrometer are ready to be used in an experiment allowing the direct observation of charm decays. Charm D meson production in 360 GeV π - p and pp interactions has been studied using the high resolution Hydrogen bubble chamber LEBC and EHS. The production cross sections are computed. The date show evidence for leading quark effect in the Feynman x distribution in the π - p sample. The rapidity gap between members of reconstructed charm pairs is small compared to the available rapidity range in the π - p sample although no strong correlation is observed between DantiD pairs in the pp sample. Finally the data are compared to other experimental results and checked to the predictions of the models of charm hadro-production in a kinematical region very different from the one of leptons pairs production at high Psub(t) where perturbative QCD applies [fr

    ρ 0 - ω mixing effect on direct CP violation in B decay into vector mesons is one of the main studies of this work. The first part is dedicated to the calculation of the decay amplitudes of the channels B → Vρ 0 (ω) which have been represented by a model. We have used the helicity formalism. In such a way branching ratios and asymmetries depending on form factor models and other parameters are predicted. Direct CP violation appears at several levels: in branching ratios, in angular distributions and in differential asymmetry as a function of ρ 0 - ω mass. The dominance of the longitudinal polarization in the studied channels is confirmed by Babar and Belle experimental results. We calculated too the strong phase and the ratio of Penguin to Tree amplitudes for each channel. In a second part, was developed an analysis of the channel B 0 → K *0 ρ 0 (ω) in the framework of LHCb experiment. It will start in 2007 and is dedicated to b flavor study and CP violation. The realistic analysis which has been performed shows that this channel is not appropriate to observe ρ 0 - ω mixing effect on asymmetry in LHCb, while the ρ + ρ 0 (ω) channel, for which we have predicted a branching ratio value confirmed by Babar and Belle, is much more promising.

  2. Prompt D$^+_s$ meson production in pp, p-Pb and Pb-Pb collisions at LHC with ALICE

    AUTHOR|(CDS)2086009; Prino, Francesco

    The aim of this thesis is the study of the D$^+_{\\rm s}$-meson production in pp collisions at the centre-of-mass energy $\\sqrt{s}=7$ TeV and in p-Pb and Pb-Pb collisions at $\\sqrt{s_{\\rm NN}}=5.02$ TeV, with the ALICE detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. Heavy quarks provide an excellent way to investigate the properties of the Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) created in high-energy nucleus-nucleus collisions via the measurements of the nuclear modification factor ($R_{\\rm AA}$) and azimuthal anisotropy of hadrons originating from their hadronisation. At low and intermediate transverse momentum p$_{\\rm T}$, the study of the D$^+_{\\rm s}$ meson should also reveal information about the charm-quark hadronisation mechanism. If charm quarks hadronise by recombining with lighter quarks from the medium, the relative abundance of D$^+_{\\rm s}$ mesons with respect to non-strange D mesons is expected to be larger in Pb-Pb than in pp collisions, at low and intermediate p$_{\\rm T}$, due to the large abundance o...

    First measurements of K*(892) mesons production properties and their spin alignment in nu_mu charged current (CC) and neutral current (NC) interactions are presented. The analysis of the full data sample of the NOMAD experiment is performed in different kinematic regions. For K*+ and K*- mesons produced in nu_mu CC interactions and decaying into K0 pi+/- we have found the following yields per event: (2.6 +/- 0.2 (stat.) +/- 0.2 (syst.))% and (1.6 +/- 0.1 (stat.) +/- 0.1 (syst.))% respectively, while for the K*+ and K*- mesons produced in nu NC interactions the corresponding yields per event are: (2.5 +/- 0.3 (stat.) +/- 0.3 (syst.))% and (1.0 +/- 0.3 (stat.) +/- 0.2 (syst.))%. The results obtained for the rho00 parameter, 0.40 +/- 0.06 (stat) +/- 0.03 (syst) and 0.28 +/- 0.07 (stat) +/- 0.03 (syst) for K*+ and K*- produced in nu_mu CC interactions, are compared to theoretical predictions tuned on LEP measurements in e+e- annihilation at the Z0 pole. For K*+ mesons produced in nu NC interactions the measured r...

    2015-01-01

    The main goal of the experimental programs on ultra-relativistic heavy ion collisions at the LHC is the production and characterization of the Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP), a phase of nuclear matter in which strongly interacting constituents (quarks and gluons) are deconfined. Heavy quarks are considered effective probes of the properties of the QGP as they are created on a short time scale, with respect to that of the QGP, and subsequently interact with it. Moreover, for a proper assessment of the characteristics of the matter produced in heavy-ion collisions, it is important to disentangle the final state effects due to the formation of a QGP from the initial state effects due to the fact that nuclei are present in the colliding system. Both initial and final state effects may lead to qualitatively similar phenomena in the observables of interest. The measurement of charmed meson production in proton-nucleus collisions allows to assess initial state effects present in nuclear collisions, under the assumption th...

  6. Exclusive production of J/ψ mesons in the ZEUS detector

    2003-07-01

    Exclusive J/ψ production has been studied using the ZEUS detector at HERA. Two ranges of the photon virtuality, Q 2 2 and 0.15 2 2 are examined. The latter is defined by requiring the scattered electron to be detected in the Beam Pipe Calorimeter under low angles. The J/ψ mesons have been identified via the decay J/ψ→e + e - . The cross sections are measured as a function of the photon-proton centre-of-mass energy, W. The data used were taken during the 1999 and 2000 running periods, which yielded an integrated luminosity of 68.7 pb -1 . The measured W dependences are in agreement with each other and the values obtained in high-Q 2 (2 2 2 ) measurements. This leads to the conclusion that J/ψ production is a hard process for all Q 2 values and can be described with models based on perturbative QCD. Electron-pion separation of the ZEUS Transition Radiation Detector is measured. A method to combine TRD information and dE/dx measurements from the central drift chamber is developed and applied to the Q 2 2 J/ψ sample. (orig.)

    The omega-3 fatty acid, cis-5,8,11,14,17-eicosapentaenoic acid (C20:5; EPA) has wide-ranging benefits in improving heart health, immune function, and mental health. A sustainable source of EPA production through fermentation of metabolically engineered Yarrowia lipolytica has been developed. In this paper, key fed-batch fermentation conditions were identified to achieve 25% EPA in the yeast biomass, which is so far the highest EPA titer reported in the literature. Dynamic models of the EPA fermentation process were established for analyzing, optimizing, and scaling up the fermentation process. In addition, model simulations were used to develop a two-stage continuous process and compare to single-stage continuous and fed- batch processes. The two stage continuous process, which is equipped with a smaller growth fermentor (Stage 1) and a larger production fermentor (Stage 2), was found to be a superior process to achieve high titer, rate, and yield of EPA. A two-stage continuous fermentation experiment with Y. lipolytica strain Z7334 was designed using the model simulation and then tested in a 2 L and 5 L fermentation system for 1,008 h. Compared with the standard 2 L fed-batch process, the two-stage continuous fermentation process improved the overall EPA productivity by 80% and EPA concentration in the fermenter by 40% while achieving comparable EPA titer in biomass and similar conversion yield from glucose. During the long-term experiment it was also found that the Y. lipolytica strain evolved to reduce byproduct and increase lipid production. This is one of the few continuous fermentation examples that demonstrated improved productivity and concentration of a final product with similar conversion yield compared with a fed-batch process. This paper suggests the two-stage continuous fermentation could be an effective process to achieve improved production of omega-3 and other fermentation products where non-growth or partially growth associated kinetics

    The quark model successfully describes all ground state baryons as members of SU(N) flavour multiplets. For excited baryon states the situation is totally different. There are much less states found in the experiment than predicted in most theoretical calculations. This fact has been known for a long time as the 'missing resonance problem'. In addition, many states found in experiments are only poorly measured up to now. Therefore, further experimental efforts are needed to clarify the situation. At COMPASS, reactions of a 190 GeV/c hadron beam impinging on a liquid hydrogen target are investigated. The hadron beam contains different species of particles (π,K,p). To distinguish these particles, two Cherenkov detectors are used. In this thesis, a new method for the identification of particles from the detector information is developed. This method is based on statistical approaches and allows a better kaon identification efficiency with a similar purity compared to the method, which was used before. The reaction pp→ppX with X=(π 0 ,η,ω,φ) is used to study different production mechanisms. A previous analysis of ω and φ mesons is extended to pseudoscalar mesons. As the resonance contributions in pη are smaller than in pπ 0 a different behaviour of these two final states is expected as a function of kinematic variables. The investigation of these differences allows to study different production mechanisms and to estimate the size of the resonant contribution in the different channels. In addition, the channel pp→ppX allows to study baryon resonances in the pX system. In the COMPASS energy regime, the reaction is dominated by Pomeron exchange. As a Pomeron carries vacuum quantum numbers, no isospin is transferred between the target proton and the beam proton. Therefore, the pX final state has isospin (1)/(2) and all baryon resonances in this channel are N* baryons. This offers the opportunity to do spectroscopy without taking Δ resonances into

    A low momentum transfer Regge-based model for pseudoscalar meson photoproduction is presented. For pions, data are relatively numerous and permit to build a consistent and reliable model which is gauge invariant and whose parameters are well determined by the precise studies and analyses in the resonance region. Subsequently, the model was extended in a straightforward fashion to the case of electroproduction where it can be useful to extract the mesons form factors

  11. BEEC: An event generator for simulating the Bc meson production at an e+e- collider

    The Bc meson is a doubly heavy quark-antiquark bound state and carries flavors explicitly, which provides a fruitful laboratory for testing potential models and understanding the weak decay mechanisms for heavy flavors. In view of the prospects in Bc physics at the hadronic colliders such as Tevatron and LHC, Bc physics is attracting more and more attention. It has been shown that a high luminosity e+e- collider running around the Z0-peak is also helpful for studying the properties of Bc meson and has its own advantages. For this purpose, we write down an event generator for simulating Bc meson production through e+e- annihilation according to relevant publications. We name it BEEC, in which the color-singlet S-wave and P-wave (cb¯)-quarkonium states together with the color-octet S-wave (cb¯)-quarkonium states can be generated. BEEC can also be adopted to generate the similar charmonium and bottomonium states via the semi-exclusive channels e++e-→|(QQ¯)[n]>+Q+Q¯ with Q=b and c respectively. To increase the simulation efficiency, we simplify the amplitude as compact as possible by using the improved trace technology. BEEC is a Fortran program written in a PYTHIA-compatible format and is written in a modular structure, one may apply it to various situations or experimental environments conveniently by using the GNU C compiler make. A method to improve the efficiency of generating unweighted events within PYTHIA environment is proposed. Moreover, BEEC will generate a standard Les Houches Event data file that contains useful information of the meson and its accompanying partons, which can be conveniently imported into PYTHIA to do further hadronization and decay simulation.

  12. Measurement of gluon polarization through spin asymmetry in the production of charmed mesons; Mesure de la polarisation des gluons par l'asymetrie de spin dans la production de mesons charmes

    The main aim of the COMPASS experiment is the measurement of the gluon polarization in the nucleon, which can be accessed by the spin asymmetry in the scattering of a polarized muon beam on a polarized nucleon target. The process sensitive to the gluon polarization is the photon-gluon fusion, which can be tagged in the cleanest way by looking at the production of D{sup 0} mesons. At COMPASS, D{sup 0} mesons are reconstructed from the invariant mass of their decay products. However, it is a rare process, dominated by a large combinatorial background. This thesis presents some studies devoted to the improvement of the charmed mesons reconstruction. The measurement of the efficiency and the space resolution of the 3 drift chamber stations of the COMPASS spectrometer is a necessary step in understanding the performances of the reconstruction of particle trajectories. The hadron identification, which is fundamental in the reconstruction of charmed meson decay, is performed by a RICH detector. A statistical treatment of signal and background, together with an upgrade project to replace the present front-end electronics, have been developed in order to improve the particle identification performances. The second part of this work concerns the spin asymmetry measurement, which requires the application of event selection criteria in order to minimize the noise over signal ratio in the D{sup 0} invariant mass, and the development of event-weighting methods to reduce the statistical error. This work presents a preliminary result, based on 2002-2004 statistics, which is the {delta}G/G measurement from open charm production. Although the error bars are large, the measured gluon polarization is compatible with zero. Given the present accuracy, this result is compatible with the existing direct measurements from other channels. However, it does not allow to distinguish between different theoretical models.

  13. Sustainable source of omega-3 eicosapentaenoic acid from metabolically engineered Yarrowia lipolytica: from fundamental research to commercial production.

    The omega-3 fatty acids, cis-5, 8, 11, 14, and 17-eicosapentaenoic acid (C20:5; EPA) and cis-4, 7, 10, 13, 16, and 19-docosahexaenoic acid (C22:6; DHA), have wide-ranging benefits in improving heart health, immune function, mental health, and infant cognitive development. Currently, the major source for EPA and DHA is from fish oil, and a minor source of DHA is from microalgae. With the increased demand for EPA and DHA, DuPont has developed a clean and sustainable source of the omega-3 fatty acid EPA through fermentation using metabolically engineered strains of Yarrowia lipolytica. In this mini-review, we will focus on DuPont's technology for EPA production. Specifically, EPA biosynthetic and supporting pathways have been introduced into the oleaginous yeast to synthesize and accumulate EPA under fermentation conditions. This Yarrowia platform can also produce tailored omega-3 (EPA, DHA) and/or omega-6 (ARA, GLA) fatty acid mixtures in the cellular lipid profiles. Fundamental research such as metabolic engineering for strain construction, high-throughput screening for strain selection, fermentation process development, and process scale-up were all needed to achieve the high levels of EPA titer, rate, and yield required for commercial application. Here, we summarize how we have combined the fundamental bioscience and the industrial engineering skills to achieve large-scale production of Yarrowia biomass containing high amounts of EPA, which led to two commercial products, New Harvest™ EPA oil and Verlasso® salmon.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Mäntysaari, Heikki; Venugopalan, Raju

    2018-06-01

    We show that gluon saturation gives rise to a strong modification of the scaling in both the nuclear mass number A and the virtuality Q2 of the vector meson production cross-section in exclusive deep-inelastic scattering off nuclei. We present qualitative analytic expressions for how the scaling exponents are modified as well as quantitative predictions that can be tested at an Electron-Ion Collider.

    Nuclear transparencies measured in exclusive incoherent ρ 0 meson production from hydrogen, deuterium, carbon, calcium, and lead in muon-nucleus scattering are reported. The data were obtained with the E665 spectrometer using the Fermilab Tevatron muon beam with a mean beam energy of 470 GeV. Increases in the nuclear transparencies are observed as the virtuality of the photon increases, in qualitative agreement with the expectations of color transparency

    We investigate the energy dependence of the exclusive photo-production cross-sections of vector mesons $J/\\Psi$ and $\\Upsilon$ on protons. In particular we are interested in the question whether their energy dependence has a description in terms of perturbative low $x$ (i.e. BFKL) evolution. As an update to the original publication [1] we include recent LHCb 13 TeV results in our comparison with data.

  17. Prescription Omega-3 Fatty Acid Products and Dietary Supplements Are Not Interchangeable.

    Hilleman, Daniel; Smer, Aiman

    2016-01-01

    To provide an overview of prescription and dietary supplement omega-3 fatty acid (OM3-FA) products and considerations for clinical use. Narrative review. The PubMed database was searched for cardiovascular-related investigations focused on eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and/or docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) (limit: English-only articles). Additional regulatory information on prescription and dietary supplements was obtained from United States Food and Drug Administration online sources. Prescription QM3-FA products are supported by robust clinical development and safety monitoring programs, whereas dietary supplements are not required to demonstrate safety or efficacy prior to marketing. There are no over-the-counter OM3-FA products available in the United States. Investigations of OM3-FA dietary supplements show that quantities of EPA and DHA are highly variable within and between brands. Dietary supplements also may contain potentially harmful components, including oxidized OM3-FA, other lipids, cholesterol, and toxins. Prescription OM3-FA products may contain DHA and EPA or EPA alone. All prescription OM3-FA products have demonstrated statistically significant triglyceride reduction as monotherapy or in combination with statins in patients with hypertriglyceridemia. Differential effects between products containing EPA and DHA compared with a high-purity EPA product (icosapent ethyl) have clinical implications: Increases in low-density lipoprotein cholesterol associated with DHA have the potential to confound strategies for managing patients with dyslipidemia. Cardiovascular outcomes studies of prescription CM3-FA products are ongoing. OM3-FA dietary supplements should not be substituted for prescription products, and prescription OM3-FA products that contain DHA are not equivalent to or interchangeable with high-purity EPA (icosapent ethyl) and should not be substituted for it.

  18. Equality of e+e- production amplitudes for scalar-vector and pseudoscalar-axial heavy meson-antimeson pairs

    Science.gov (United States)

    Voloshin, M. B.

    2018-02-01

    The production of heavy meson-antimeson pairs of the type S V and P A in e+e- annihilation is considered, with P and V being the ground-state JP=0- and JP=1- (anti)mesons from the (1 /2 )-doublet and S and A standing for the excited JP=0+ and JP=1+ (anti)mesons from the (1 /2 )+doublet. It is argued that the production amplitudes in these two channels should be equal up to a higher (than one) order in the heavy quark mass (ΛQCD/MQ ) expansion, A (e +e-→S V ¯ )=A (e+e-→A P ¯ ) , including both the S -wave and the D -wave amplitudes. Given that the S V and P A thresholds are extremely close, the production cross section in both channels should be the same to a high degree of accuracy. In practice, this behavior can be studied for the processes e+e-→Ds 0(2317 )D¯s *+c .c . and e+e-→Ds 1(2460 )D¯ s+c .c . in the charm sector and e+e-→Bs 0B¯s *+c .c . and e+e-→Bs 1B¯ s+c .c . in the B sector.

  19. Effective-gluon model description of inclusive meson production in π+- p and pp collisions

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Look, G.W.; Fischbach, E.

    1977-01-01

    The recently introduced effective-gluon (EG) model is applied to inclusive meson production at large transverse momentum (p/sub t)/from π +- p and pp interactions. In the EG model the dependence of the inclusive differential cross section on p/ sub t/ and center-of-momentum energy √s is characterized by a single universal constant B = 18 GeV 2 ; this constant is obtained by fitting to the inclusive data for pp → cX with c = π +- π 0 , K +- p, and p-bar. Since the EG model requires that the inclusive differential cross sections for π +- p → X/should be characterized by the same constant B, the dependence of these cross sections on p/sub t/and √s should follow from the previous analysis of pp → cX without the introduction of any additional parameters. The only new information required is the form of the momentum distribution function for partons in the incident pion. Several models for this function are considered and it it shown that all of the alternatives lead to approximately the same predictions. Comparison of theory and experiment indicates that the EG model description of the recent Fermilab data of Donaldson et al. is good to approximately 15--20 % per data point over a range of more than 10 5 in the magnitude of the inclusive cross section

    2007-01-01

    Modern understanding in particle physics is constructed over lay- ers and layers of work. Most of the work was done during last century, starting from the quantum mechanics. Modern theoretical basis is the parton model, which is constructed from three independent parts: distribution of momentum to partons inside hadron, partonic cross-sections from QCD and from fragmentation of parton to hadrons. All of these parts are discussed in this work. Future experiments are aiming for higher energies and/or greater number of intresting events than what previous experiments were capable to gain. Main example of this is LHC and ALICE-experiment on it in CERN. While simulations have benefited greatly from fast increase of computing power during last few decades. With the following assumptions, p$_t$ $>$ 1 GeV, fixed QCD scale Q = 5 GeV, massless quarks and only gluon-gluon channel in partonic cross-section and $\\delta$-function fragmentation, the lowest order simulations for production of D-meson with midrapidity y = 0 a...

    Experimental results of πsUp(-)Asub(z)→etaAsub(z-1) differential cross section has been measured on carbon nuclei at 3.3 GeV/c momentum and in the range of -t from tsub(min) to 0.4 (GeV/c) 2 . The results are compared with the previous ones, obtained during the measurements of the reaction π - p→etan. In the differential cross section for the reaction on carbon, a minimum in the forward direction, much deeper than for hydrogen, was observed. In the framework of incoherent particle production theory, the measured effective number of protons in carbon nuclei is Zsub(eff)sup(C)=3.2+-0.7. The experimentally determined Zsub(eff)sup-- (C) (t) dependence for 0 2 is presented

    The inclusive production of the meson resonances $\\rho^{0}(770)$, $f_0(980)$ and $f_2(1270)$ in neutrino-nucleus charged current interactions has been studied with the NOMAD detector exposed to the wide band neutrino beam generated by 450 GeV protons at the CERN SPS. For the first time the $f_{0}(980)$ meson is observed in neutrino interactions. The statistical significance of its observation is 6 standard deviations. The presence of $f_{2}(1270)$ in neutrino interactions is reliably established. The average multiplicity of these three resonances is measured as a function of several kinematic variables. The experimental results are compared to the multiplicities obtained from a simulation based on the Lund model. In addition, the average multiplicity of $\\rho^{0}(770)$ in antineutrino - nucleus interactions is measured.

    Sieler, Uwe; Brandt, S.

    2001-01-01

    The inclusive production of D∗± mesons in two-photon collisions has been measured with the ALEPH detector at center-of-mass energies in the range √s = 183 − 189 GeV. D∗+ mesons are reconstructed in the decay D∗+ → D0π+ and the D0’s in turn are identified in the decay channels (i) K−π+, (ii) K−π+π0, and (iii) K−π+π−π+, and analogously for D∗− modes. A total number of 113 ± 15 D∗ events was observed from an integrated luminosity of L = 23 6.3pb−1. Contributions from direct and single resolved processes have been separated using event shape variables. Differential cross sections of D∗ production as a function of the transverse momentum pD∗ t and of the pseudorapidity ηD∗ of the D∗ meson have been measured in the range 2 GeV < pD∗ t < 12 GeV and |ηD∗ | < 1.5 and have been compared to NLO calculations as well as to an OPAL measurement. An extrapolation of the integrated visible D∗ cross section to the total charm cross section has been performed using...

  5. D*± meson production at low Q2 with the H1 detector and determination of unintegrated gluon densities

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Cholewa, Axel

    2011-02-01

    A study of inclusive D *± meson production in deep inelastic electron-proton scattering at the H1 detector is presented for low photon virtualities. The results of these measurements have been used to determine unintegrated gluon densities with the Monte Carlo generator CASCADE. The phase space of the measurement is defined by photon virtualities inside 2 GeV 2 2 2 , and inelasticities inside 0.02 *± mesons is restricted to pseudo rapidities of vertical stroke η D * vertical stroke t D * >1.5 GeV and complements D *± meson production measurements at higher photon virtualities. Data taken in the years 2004-2007 during the HERA II running period have been analyzed yielding an integrated luminosity of 348 pb -1 . This significant increase in statistics compared to HERA I was exploited in the single and double differential cross sections which have been measured more differentiated than in previous measurements at H1. The single differential cross sections have been used in parameter fits of unintegrated gluon densities. For this purpose scattering events in electron-proton collisions were simulated with the Monte Carlo generator CASCADE and the deviation of the prediction of the simulation from the measured data was then minimized with the χ 2 method. Three different parametrizations of unintegrated gluon distributions have been used and compared. (orig.)

  6. Radiative decays of vector mesons in the chiral bag model

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Tabachenko, A.N.

    1988-01-01

    A new model of radiative π-meson decays of vector mesons in the chiral bag model is proposed. The quark-π-meson interaction has the form of a pseudoscalar coupling and is located on the bag surface. The vector meson decay width depends on the quark masses, the π-meson decay constant, the radius of the bag, and the free parameter Z 2 , which specifies the disappearance of the bag during the decay. The obtained results for the omega- and p-decay widths are in satisfactory agreement with the experiment

  7. Meson exchange corrections in deep inelastic scattering on deuteron

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Kaptari, L.P.; Titov, A.I.

    1989-01-01

    Starting with the general equations of motion of the nucleons interacting with the mesons the one-particle Schroedinger-like equation for the nucleon wave function and the deep inelastic scattering amplitude with the meson-exchange currents are obtained. Effective pion-, sigma-, and omega-meson exchanges are considered. It is found that the mesonic corrections only partially (about 60%) restore the energy sum rule breaking because of the nucleon off-mass-shell effects in nuclei. This results contradicts with the prediction based on the calculation of the energy sum rule limited by the second order of the nucleon-meson vertex and static approximation. 17 refs.; 3 figs

    Evidence is presented for diffractive production of ρ-mesons and of ρπ-systems in νp and anti νp charged-current interactions. In the (anti-)neutrino energy range 10 GeV ν 1 production. However, the data cannot distinguish between diffractive a 1 and diffractive nonresonant ρπ production.

    Using the Columbia University--Stony Brook (CUSB-II) detector we have studied the inclusive photon spectrum from 2.9x10 4 Υ(5S) decays. We observe a strong signal due to B * →Bγ decays. From this we obtain (i) the average B * -B mass difference, 46.7±0.4 MeV, (ii) the photon yield per Υ(5S) decay, left-angle γ/Υ(5S)right-angle=1.09±0.06, and (iii) the average velocity of the B * 's, left-angle β right-angle=0.156±0.010, for a mix of nonstrange (B) and strange (B s ) B * mesons from Υ(5S) decays. From the shape of the photon line, we find that both B and B s mesons are produced with nearly equal values for the hyperfine splitting of the B and B s meson systems

  11. Investigation of Soft Photon Production in Hadronic Collisions Using the OMEGA Spectrometer

    2002-01-01

    The Omega Spectrometer, with a hydrogen target and two electromagnetic calorimeters, is used to investigate the anomalous production of soft $\\gamma$s in hadronic collisions. The experiment is aimed at confirming an observation made in BEBC: the yield of soft $\\gamma$s (70\\% of the $\\gamma$s have c.m. energies in the range (20~$<$~E(@g)~$<$~60~MeV)) exceeds the QED prediction of hadronic bremsstrahlung by a factor of 3. This effect may be related to the anomalous production of low mass lepton pairs (virtual $\\gamma$s) observed in several hadronic experiments. \\\\ \\\\ An interaction trigger is used to collect events of @p@+p collisions (and pp tagged by Cedars in the beam) at 280~GeV/c. The charged tracks are recorded by the @W spectrometer, the @g's in the two calorimeters. The @g's arising from hadronic radiative decay (mostly @p|0's) are reconstructed, and subtracted event by event. The remaining @g spectrum is studied, in a region of phase space where the background (e.g. bachelor @g's from uncompletel...

    New ARGUS results on exclusive final states produced in two-photon interactions are presented. Measurements of the vector meson pairs ρ + ρ - , ωρ 0 , ωω, K* + K* - and K* 0 bar K* 0 , as well as a search for φρ 0 , φω and φφ, are described. The results are compared with theoretical models. It is concluded that none of the models tells the full story when one considers the ARGUS data on all the possible vector meson pairs constructed from the 1 - vector nonet. 17 references, 5 figures, 1 table

    Minimum Bias production cross sections of $\\eta$ mesons have been measured in 200AGeV S+Au and S+S collisions at the CERN SPS by reconstructing the $\\eta\\rightarrow\\gamma\\gamma$ decay. The measurements have been made over the rapidity range $2.1 \\leq y \\leq 2.9$ using the leadglass spectrometer of WA80. Within the statistical and systematical uncertainties the spectral shapes of $\\pi~0$ and $\\eta$ mesons yields are identical when their invariant differential cross section is plotted as a function of the transverse mass. The relative normalization of the $\\eta$ to $\\pi~0$ transverse mass spectra is found to be $0.53 \\pm 0.07$ for S+Au and $0.43 \\pm 0.15$ for S+S reactions. Extrapolation to full phase space leads to an integrated cross section ratio of $\\eta$ to $\\pi~0$ mesons of $0.15 \\pm 0.02 {\\rm (stat.)} \\pm 0.02 {\\rm (syst.)}$, and $0.12 \\pm 0.03 {\\rm (stat.)} \\pm 0.02 {\\rm (syst.)}$ for S+Au and S+S collisions, respectively.

    The production of the excited charm mesons D 1 , D * 2 and D + s1 in ep collisions has been measured with the ZEUS detector at Hera. The data sample taken by the ZEUS detector in the years 2003-2007, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 373 pb -1 has been used. The masses of the neutral, charged and strange states, the widths of the neutral states, the helicity parameters of D 0 1 and D + s1 were determined and compared with other measurements and with theoretical expectations. The measured helicity parameters of the D 0 1 and D + s1 allows for some mixing of S- and D-waves in their decays to D *± π -+ and D *± K 0 respectively. The measured value of the D 0 1 helicity parameter is also consistent with a pure D-wave decay. Ratios of branching fractions of the two decay modes of the D *0 2 , D *± 2 and D + s1 states were measured and compared with previous measurements. The fractions of charm quarks hadronising into D 1 , D * 2 and D + s1 were measured and are consistent with those obtained in e + e - annihilations. The Grid computing technology has a high importance for modern High Energy Physics. This technology has been successfully used in Zeus experiment for the MC simulations and data analysis. The dedicated infrastructure has been maintained by the author since 2010. In addition to continuous support, the author has upgraded and improved the performance of the Grid MC simulations and contributed to the Zeus data preservation project.

  19. Omega-3 fatty acid oxidation products prevent vascular endothelial cell activation by coplanar polychlorinated biphenyls

    Coplanar polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) may facilitate development of atherosclerosis by stimulating pro-inflammatory pathways in the vascular endothelium. Nutrition, including fish oil-derived long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, such as docosahexaenoic acid (DHA, 22:6ω-3), can reduce inflammation and thus the risk of atherosclerosis. We tested the hypothesis that cyclopentenone metabolites produced by oxidation of DHA can protect against PCB-induced endothelial cell dysfunction. Oxidized DHA (oxDHA) was prepared by incubation of the fatty acid with the free radical generator 2,2-azo-bis(2-amidinopropane) dihydrochloride (AAPH). Cellular pretreatment with oxDHA prevented production of superoxide induced by PCB77, and subsequent activation of nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB). A 4 /J 4 -neuroprostanes (NPs) were identified and quantitated using HPLC ESI tandem mass spectrometry. Levels of these NPs were markedly increased after DHA oxidation with AAPH. The protective actions of oxDHA were reversed by treatment with sodium borohydride (NaBH 4 ), which concurrently abrogated A 4 /J 4 -NP formation. Up-regulation of monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) by PCB77 was markedly reduced by oxDHA, but not by un-oxidized DHA. These protective effects were proportional to the abundance of A 4 /J 4 NPs in the oxidized DHA sample. Treatment of cells with oxidized eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA, 20:5ω-3) also reduced MCP-1 expression, but less than oxDHA. Treatment with DHA-derived cyclopentenones also increased DNA binding of NF-E2-related factor-2 (Nrf2) and downstream expression of NAD(P)H:quinone oxidoreductase (NQO1), similarly to the Nrf-2 activator sulforaphane. Furthermore, sulforaphane prevented PCB77-induced MCP-1 expression, suggesting that activation of Nrf-2 mediates the observed protection against PCB77 toxicity. Our data implicate A 4 /J 4 -NPs as mediators of omega-3 fatty acid-mediated protection against the endothelial toxicity of coplanar PCBs.

    Using the ARGUS detector at DORIS, we have observed the production of Fsup(+-) mesons in e + e - annihilation at a centre of mass energy of 10 GeV through their subsequent decays into PHIπsup(+-) and PHIπ + π - πsup(+-). The values obtained for [R(e + e - -> F x). Branching Ratio] are (1.47 +- 0.32 +- 0.20)% and (1.63 +- 0.42 +- 0.41)% respectively. The observed mass is (1973.6 +- 2.6 +- 3.0) MeV/c 2 . The F momentum spectrum is as expected for the fragmentation of c quarks into charmed mesons, but is somewhat softer than for fragmentation into Dsup(*) mesons. The relevant angular distributions are consistent with a spin zero assignment of the F meson. (orig.)

  4. Towards the Industrial Production of Omega-3 Long Chain Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids from a Genetically Modified Diatom Phaeodactylum tricornutum.

    Full Text Available The marine diatom Phaeodactylum tricornutum can accumulate up to 30% of the omega-3 long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid (LC-PUFA eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA and, as such, is considered a good source for the industrial production of EPA. However, P. tricornutum does not naturally accumulate significant levels of the more valuable omega-3 LC-PUFA docosahexaenoic acid (DHA. Previously, we have engineered P. tricornutum to accumulate elevated levels of DHA and docosapentaenoic acid (DPA by overexpressing heterologous genes encoding enzyme activities of the LC-PUFA biosynthetic pathway. Here, the transgenic strain Pt_Elo5 has been investigated for the scalable production of EPA and DHA. Studies have been performed at the laboratory scale on the cultures growing in up to 1 L flasks a 3.5 L bubble column, a 550 L closed photobioreactor and a 1250 L raceway pond with artificial illumination. Detailed studies were carried out on the effect of different media, carbon sources and illumination on omega-3 LC-PUFAs production by transgenic strain Pt_Elo5 and wild type P. tricornutum grown in 3.5 L bubble columns. The highest content of DHA (7.5% of total fatty acids, TFA in transgenic strain was achieved in cultures grown in seawater salts, Instant Ocean (IO, supplemented with F/2 nutrients (F2N under continuous light. After identifying the optimal conditions for omega-3 LC-PUFA accumulation in the small-scale experiments we compared EPA and DHA levels of the transgenic strain grown in a larger fence-style tubular photobioreactor and a raceway pond. We observed a significant production of DHA over EPA, generating an EPA/DPA/DHA profile of 8.7%/4.5%/12.3% of TFA in cells grown in a photobioreactor, equivalent to 6.4 μg/mg dry weight DHA in a mid-exponentially growing algal culture.

    A measurement is presented of inelastic photo- and electroproduction of J/psi mesons in ep scattering at HERA. The data were recorded with the H1 detector in the period from 2004 to 2007. Single and double differential cross sections are determined and the helicity distributions of the J/psi mesons are analysed. The results are compared to theoretical predictions in the colour singlet model and in the framework of non-relativistic QCD. Calculations in the colour singlet model using a k_T factorisation ansatz are able to give a good description of the data, while colour singlet model calculations to next-to-leading order in collinear factorisation underestimate the data.

    1993-09-01

    Evidence is presented for diffractive production of ρ-mesons and of ρπ-systems in vp andbar ν p chargedcurrent interactions. In the (anti-)neutrino energy range 10 GeV< E v <60 GeV the cross sections for diffractive ρ and diffractive ρπ production are found to be (0.64±0.14 (stat.)±0.08 (syst.))% and (0.28±0.08 (stat.)±0.04 (syst.))% of the charged-current cross section. The diffractive ρπ signal is consistent with being entirely due to diffractive a 1 production. However, the data cannot distinguish between diffractive a 1 and diffractive nonresonant ρπ production. The experimental distributions of W, Q 2, x Bj and y Bj for diffractive ρ and ρπ events are consistent with model predictions.

    In e^+e^- collisions at centre-of-mass energies around 91 GeV, D^*0 mesons have been reconstructed using data collected with the OPAL detector at LEP. The hadronisation fraction has been measured to be f(c -> D^*0) = 0.218 +/- 0.054 +/- 0.045 +/- 0.007, where the errors correspond to the statistical and systematic errors specific to this analysis, and to systematic uncertainties from externally measured branching fractions, respectively. Together with previous OPAL measurements of the hadron isation fractions of other charmed mesons, this value is used to investigate the relative production of observed vector and pseudoscalar charmed mesons in Z^0 -> cc(bar) decays. The production ratio production rate in hadronic Z^0 decays is presented.

    The production of η mesons in proton-proton collisions has been studied using the WASA detector at the CELSIUS storage ring at excess energies of Q=40 MeV and Q=72 MeV. The η was detected through its 2γ decay in a near-4π electromagnetic calorimeter, whereas the protons were measured by a combination of straw chambers and plastic scintillator planes in the forward hemisphere. About 6.9×104 and 9.3×104 events were found at Q=40 MeV and Q=72 MeV, respectively, with background contributions of less than 5%. A simple parametrization of the production cross section in terms of low partial waves was used to evaluate the acceptance corrections. Strong evidence was found for the influence of higher partial waves. The Dalitz plots show the presence of p waves in both the pp and the η{pp} systems and the angular distributions of the η in the center-of-mass frame suggest the influence of d-wave η mesons.

    Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is a polyunsaturated fatty acid composed of 22 carbon atoms and six double bonds. Because the first double bond, as counted from the methyl terminus, is at position three, DHA belongs to the so-called omega-3 group. In recent years, DHA has attracted much attention because

    In this report, I will mainly discuss baryon resonances with emphasis on the discovery of the {Omega}{sup {minus}}. However, for completeness, I will also present some data on the meson resonances which together with the baryons led to the uncovering of the SU(3) symmetry of particles and ultimately to the concept of quarks.

  18. Vector and tensor meson production in quasi-two-body final states using the dual fermion model

    Becker, L.; Matthaeus, E.; Weigt, G.

    1976-01-01

    Phenomenological dual fermion amplitudes are obtained by using Neveu-Schwarz-Ramond model as a guide to incorporate half-integer spin. The model relates the production mechanism of different resonances lying on the same degenerate Regge trajectory, thus allowing a simultaneous description of vector and tensor meson production. A characteristic feature of the amplitudes is their non-evasive coupling structure. Predictions of the model for rho 0 -f-g 0 , ω-A 2 - and anti K*(890)-anti K*(1420) production in quasi-two-body reactions are compared with experimental data. The differential cross sections for natural and unnatural spin-parity t-channel exchanges as well as their contributions to different helicities of the produced resonances are given. In particular, new properties arise from the non-evasive pion exchange. Reasonable agreement with the data is found. (Auth.)

    CT: Differential and total displacement and helium production rates are calculated for copper irradiated by spallation neutrons and 760 MeV protons at the Clinton P. Anderson Los Alamos Meson Physics Facility (LAMPF). The calculations are performed using the SPECTER and VNMTC computer codes, the latter being specially designed for spallation radiation damage calculations. For comparison, similar SPECTER calculations are also described for irradiation of copper in EBR-II and RTNS-II. The results indicate substantial contributions to the displacement and helium production rates due to neutrons in the high-energy tail (above 20 MeV) of the LAMPF spallation neutron spectrum. Still higher production rates are calculated for irradiations in the direct proton beam. These results will provide useful background information for research to be conducted at a new irradiation facility at LAMPF

    We report the STAR measurement of ψ meson production in Au + Au and p + p collisions at √s NN = 200 GeV. Using the event mixing technique, the ψ spectra and yields are obtained at midrapidity for five centrality bins in Au+Au collisions and for non-singly-diffractive p+p collisions. It is found that the ψ transverse momentum distributions from Au+Au collisions are better fitted with a single-exponential while the p+p spectrum is better described by a double-exponential distribution. The measured nuclear modification factors indicate that ψ production in central Au+Au collisions is suppressed relative to peripheral collisions when scaled by the number of binary collisions ( bin >). The systematics of T > versus centrality and the constant ψ/K - ratio versus beam species, centrality, and collision energy rule out kaon coalescence as the dominant mechanism for ψ production

    Quasiexclusive neutral meson production in pN-interactions is studied in experiments with the SPHINX facility operating in a proton beam from the IHEP accelerator (E p =70 GeV). The cross sections and the parameters of the differential distributions for π 0 , ω, η and K 0 production in the deep fragmentation region (x F >0.79/0.86) are presented. The results show that such proton quasiexclusive reactions with baryon exchange may be promising in searches for exotic mesons. (orig.)

The data were collected by the H1 experiment during the period from 2004 to 2007 and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 351 pb -1 . The charm contribution, F 2 c anti c , to the proton structure function F 2 is determined. The measurements are compared with QCD predictions. (orig.)

    The inclusive production of D ± (2010) mesons in deep inelastic scattering is studied using data recorded by the H1 experiment in the years 1999 to 2000 and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 47.66 pb -1 . The measurement covers the region 2 2 2 in photon virtuality and the region 0.02 *± meson production is restricted in transverse momentum to p T (D * )>1.25 GeV and in pseudorapidity to vertical stroke η(D * ) vertical stroke <1.8. Single and double differential cross sections are compared to leading order and next-to-leading order perturbative QCD predictions.

  6. Study of charm production through the decay of B mesons in the BABAR experiment; Etude de la production de charme dans les desintegrations des mesons beaux avec l'experience BABAR

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Couderc, F

    2005-04-15

    The BABAR experiment, located at SLAC (Stanford, California), has been dedicated, since 1999, to the study of B meson decays produced in electron positron collisions with an energy in the center of mass frame equal to the mass of {epsilon}(4S) resonance. In this experiment, the charged particles identification is provided, in particular by the measurement of the energy loss per length unit in the drift chamber. In order to improve the calibration of this quantity, a selection of electrons/positrons from radiative Bhabha events was performed; with the new sample the charge asymmetry in the charged particles reconstruction was reduced. In B meson decays, the inclusive production of charmed particles (D{sup 0}, D{sup 0}-bar, D{sup {+-}}, D{sub s}{sup {+-}}, {lambda}{sub c}{sup {+-}}) is measured with a new analysis method, made possible by the large statistics accumulated by the BABAR experiment. B and B-bar mesons are produced simultaneously from the {epsilon}(4S) resonance. The events are selected by reconstructing completely one B in a hadronic channel. Charmed particles from the other B are then reconstructed with the remaining tracks. This enables the measurement of the total number of charm produced in B{sup +} and in B{sup 0} decays separating the correlated charm production (quark transitions: b {yields} cX) from the anti-correlated production (quark transitions: b {yields} c-bar X). The results obtained on an integrated luminosity of 210 fb{sup -1} are the following: N{sub c}{sup B{sup +}} = 0.970 {+-} 0.042; N{sub c-}bar{sup B{sup +}} 0.262 {+-} 0.034; N{sub c}{sup B{sup 0}} = 0.950 {+-} 0.057; N{sub c-}bar{sup B{sup 0}} 0.285 {+-} 0.048. This new method also allows the measurement of the momentum of the charmed particles in the B rest frame. Access to the different production mechanisms of these particles is thereby provided.

  7. Production of η, η' and f1(1285)-mesons in tagged and untagged two-photon reactions

    Peters, J.H.

    1990-08-01

    In this thesis the formation of the pseudoscalar mesons η η' and of the axial vector meson f 1 (1285) has been studied in tagged and untagged two-photon reactions with the CELLO detector. In the untagged mode the production of the pseudoscalar meson η' was studied in the π + π - γ final state. The radiative width was determined to be Γ γγ (η') = 3.62 ± 0.15 ± 0.47 keV. One major source of background in the π + π - γ-final state in the incompletely reconstructed decay of the a 2 (1320) into π + π - π 0 . A combined fit to the η' and a 2 mass spectrum yields a radiative width for the a 2 (1320) of Γ γγ (a 2 (1320)) = 0.97 ± 0.09 ± 0.20 keV. In the single tag mode the Q 2 -development of the pseudoscalar-γγ * -transition form factor was measured. For the η' this measurement was performed in the decay modes η' → ργ, η' → η →γγ π + π - and η' → ηsub(→π + π - -(π 0 /γ))π + π - . The Q 2 -developed of the form factor is described by a pole-form 1/(1+Q 2 /Λ 2 ) with a mass of Λsub(η') = 0.794 ± 0.044 GeV. The coresponding measurement for the η was performed in the decay modes η → π + π - π 0 and π + π - γ. Here as well the Q 2 -dependence can be described with a pole form for the form factor. The pole mass obtained by a fit is Λ η = 0.839 ± 0.063 GeV. The coupling of spin-1 mesons to two photons cannot be measured in the untagged mode. Their radiative width is zero at Q 2 = 0. Instead , a Q 2 -independent coupling strength Γ can be determined in the single tag mode. This quantity was measured for the f 1 (1285) in the ηπ + π - -final state to be Γsub(γγ * ) Cahn (f 1 (1285)) = 4.4 ± 2.1 ± 1.2 keV in the frame-work of the Cahn-model which relates the two possible independent cross sections σ LT and σ TT governing this process.

    1997-07-01

    We present a study on the invariant mass distribution of {pi}''{+-}{pi}''0 pairs produced in the process {tau}{yields}{pi}''{+-}{pi}''0{nu} . The analysis is based on a sample of 33,096 events collected by the L3 detector between 1991 and 1994. The data is not inconsistent with the hypothesis that the process is being mediated by the p(770) meson alone but is in better agreement with the inclusion of an extra {rho} resonance in the decay of the tau lepton.

    We present an estimate of the cross-section for the exclusive production of a {rho}{sub L}{sup 0}-meson pair in e{sup +}e{sup -} scattering, which will be studied in the future high-energy International Linear Collider. For this aim, we complete calculations of the Born order approximation of the amplitudes {gamma}{sup *}{sub L,T}(Q{sub 1}{sup 2}){gamma}{sup *}{sub L,T}(Q{sub 2}{sup 2}){yields}{rho}{sub L}{sup 0}{rho}{sub L}{sup 0}, for arbitrary polarization of virtual photons and longitudinally polarized mesons, in the kinematical region s>>-t,Q{sub 1} {sup 2},Q{sub 2} {sup 2}. These processes are completely calculable in the hard region Q{sub 1}{sup 2},Q{sub 2}{sup 2}>>{lambda}{sup 2}{sub QCD}, and we perform most of the calculations in an analytical way. The resulting cross-section turns out to be large enough for this process to be measurable with foreseen luminosity and energy, for Q{sub 1}{sup 2} and Q{sub 2}{sup 2} in the range of a few GeV{sup 2}.

    Using data obtained with the bubble chamber BEBC at CERN, the inclusive f 2 (1270) meson production in νp and anti νp charged current reactions is studied. It is found that f 2 production occurs mainly in events with a hadronic invariant mass W> or approx.7 GeV. In these events, the average f 2 multiplicity is about half the average ρ 0 multiplicity, and the x F and p T 2 distributions of the f 2 agree in shape with those of the ρ 0 . The predictions of a semi-empirical model (Wells model) are in accord with the measured multiplicities at W>7 GeV, whereas at lower W the model predicts too large f 2 multiplicities. (orig.)

    The work presented in this thesis has been performed on the DELPHI experiment, at the CERN large electron-positron collider LEP. The main purpose of this thesis is the study of charmed mesons D * produced in the hadronic decays of the Z neutral. At first we will describe the theoretical framework by presenting the Standard Model, the fragmentation models and the heavy quark physics. The DELPHI detector is then described and especially the track detectors which are the main detectors in our analysis. Two studies of charged D * mesons are then presented. In the first one around 170 D *+ decaying into D neutral π + were reconstructed, where the D neutral decays into K - π + or K - π + π - π + . From the X E = E(D *+ )/E beam distribution, the production rate of D *+ in Z neutral hadronic decays is computed. Fixing the b quark fragmentation function, the D *+ rate from charm quark and the average E > c are measured. The partial width Γ c is also measured. The following results were obtained: Br(Z had → D *+ X). B * B o = (4.54 + - 0.54 (stat) ± 0.55(syst)).10 -3 E > c 0.51 ± 0.03(stat) ± 0.02(syst) Γ c /Γ had = 0.157 ± 0.031(stat) ± 0.041(syst) where B * B o is the product Br(D *+ → D neutral π + ).Br(D neutral → K - π + ). In the second study the production rate of cantic events is derived from the inclusive analysis of charged pions coming from the decay of charmed mesons D *+ → D neutral π + where the π + is constrained by kinematics to have a low P T with respect to the jet axis. The amount of D *+ counted by this method is ten times greater than in the first study. We have thus measured: Γ c /Γ had = 0.122 ± 0.011stat) ± 0.028(syst)

    Data from e + e - annihilation into hadrons at 4.8 GeV center-of-mass energy were used to search for charmed mesons in the mass range 1.5 to 4.0 GeV/c 2 . Narrow peaks in the invariant-mass distributions for K -+ π +- , K 0 /sub s/π + π - , π + π - , K + K - , K -+ , π +- π +- , K 0 /sub s/π +- , K 0 /sub s/K +- , and π + π - π +- were sought. Upper limits are presented for the inclusive production cross section times the branching ratio for charmed mesons having these decay modes. 2 figures, 1 table

  14. Semiexclusive production of J/ψ mesons in proton–proton collisions with electromagnetic and diffractive dissociation of one of the protons

    Full Text Available We calculate the cross sections for both electromagnetic and diffractive dissociation of protons for the semiexclusive production of J/ψ mesons in proton–proton collisions at the LHC. Several differential distributions in missing mass (MX, or single-particle variables related exclusively to the J/ψ meson are calculated for s=7and13 TeV. The cross sections and distributions are compared to the cross section of the purely exclusive reaction pp→ppJ/ψ. We show the corresponding ratio as a function of J/ψ meson rapidity. We compare the distributions for purely electromagnetic and purely diffractive proton excitations/dissociation. We predict cross sections for electromagnetic and diffractive excitations of similar order of magnitude.

    Based on the experience from the production of anti-Lambda Lambda and anti-Sigma Sigma pairs at LEAR (experiment PS185) it is suggested to continue the investigations towards the heavier antihyperon--hyperon pairs anti-Xi Xi and anti-Omega Omega in view of: (1) the production dynamics of the heavier antihyperon--hyperon out of the anti-p p annihilation (2) a comparison of the (3s 3anti-s quark system) anti-Omega Omega to the (3 (anti-s s)) 3 phi meson production, where both systems have similar masses (3.345 and 3.057, respectively) and identical valence quark content. A systematic study of the antihyperon--hyperon production with increasing strangeness content is interesting for the following reasons: The anti-Omega Omega production is the creation of two spin 3/2 objects out of the two spin 1/2 anti-p p particles. Results of the PS185 experiments prove a clear dominance of the spin triplet anti-s s dissociation. In the Omega anti-Omega the three s-quarks (three anti-s quarks) are aligned to spin 3/2 each.

    The authors report the first observation of an excited singly-charmed baryon (Omega)* c (css) in the radiative decay (Omega) c 0 γ, where the (Omega) c 0 baryon is reconstructed in the decays to the final states (Omega) - π + , (Omega) - π + π 0 , (Omega) - π + π - π + , and Ξ - K - π + π + . 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 (Omega)* c and the (Omega) c 0 baryons is measured to be 70.8 ± 1.0(stat) ± 1.1(syst) MeV/c 2 . They also measure the ratio of inclusive production cross sections of (Omega)* c and (Omega) c 0 in e + e - annihilation

    The authors reconstruct the charmonium mesons J/{psi}, {psi}(2S) and {chi}{sub c} using a sample of 8.46 x 10{sup 6} B{bar B} events collected by the BABAR detector operating at e{sup +}e{sup -} center of mass energies near the {Lambda}(4S) resonance. by measuring rates relative to the branching fraction of the J/{psi}, they obtain preliminary inclusive B branching fractions of (0.25 {+-} 0.02 {+-} 0.02)% to the {psi}(2S) and (0.39 {+-} 0.04 {+-} 0.04)% to the {chi}{sub c1}, and set a 90% confidence level limit of 0.24% on decays through the {chi}{sub c2}.

  20. Dressed dibaryon production as a new mechanism for basic nuclear force and meson-exchange currents

    Kukulin, V.I.

    2003-01-01

    A novel concept for the nuclear force is introduced. The approach assumes that a specific dressed six-quark state (dressed dibaryon) is generated in NN collision at intermediate and short ranges. The new dressing mechanism providing π-, σ-, ρ- and ω-meson clouds around the six quark core is discussed. These novel components produce both strong intermediate-range attraction and short-range repulsion in the NN sector due to the s-channel exchange mechanism which is supplemented with conventional π- and 2π- Yukawa exchanges at intermediate and long ranges. The model developed is demonstrated to lead to numerous new effects and contributions in many fields of nuclear physics. (author)

  1. Exclusive vector meson production with leading neutrons in a saturation model for the dipole amplitude in mixed space

    2018-05-01

    We investigate ρ vector meson production in e p collisions at HERA with leading neutrons in the dipole formalism. The interaction of the dipole and the pion is described in a mixed-space approach, in which the dipole-pion scattering amplitude is given by the Marquet-Peschanski-Soyez saturation model, which is based on the traveling wave solutions of the nonlinear Balitsky-Kovchegov equation. We estimate the magnitude of the absorption effects and compare our results with a previous analysis of the same process in full coordinate space. In contrast with this approach, the present study leads to absorption K factors in the range of those predicted by previous theoretical studies on semi-inclusive processes.

  2. Production of φ mesons in central Si+Au collisions at 14.6 A·GeV/c

    Wang, Yufeng

    1993-01-01

    The production of φ mesons from central Si+Au collisions has been measured by E859 at the BNL-AGS by selecting events with identified K + K - pairs. The values for the mass and width of the φ obtained from the invariant mass of the kaon pairs are consistent with those of the Particle Data Book. Preliminary results for the invariant 1/2πm T d 2 n/dm T dy distribution and dn/dy are presented. The inverse slope parameter for an exponential m T fit to the m T spectrum is 171±18 MeV. An analysis of the ratio of the φ signal to the combinatoric background in the K + K - invariant mass distribution provides a rough estimate of the size of the reaction region, which is found to be consistent with the E859 interferometry measurements

    The authors have measured the differential cross section for the inclusive production of {psi}(2S) mesons decaying to {mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup -} that were produced in prompt or B-decay processes from p{bar p} collisions at 1.96 TeV. These measurements have been made using a data set from an integrated luminosity of 1.1 fb{sup -1} collected by the CDF II detector at Fermilab. For events with transverse momentum p{sub T}({psi}(2S)) > 2 GeV/c and rapidity |y({psi}(2S))| < 0.6 we measure the integrated inclusive cross section {sigma}(p{bar p} {yields} {psi}(2S)X) {center_dot} Br({psi}(2S) {yields} {mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup -}) to be 3.29 {+-} 0.04(stat.) {+-} 0.32(syst.) nb.

    We investigate the photo- and electro-production of strangeness of the proton and deuteron, based upon effective hadronic Lagrangians. The so called off-shell effects inherent to the fermions with spin {>=}3/2 is carefully studied. This formalism is now extended to the reaction {gamma}p {yields} {eta}p. (authors)

    We estimate the sizeable cross section for deep exclusive electroproduction of an exotic J PC = 1 -+ hybrid meson in the Bjorken regime. The production amplitude scales like the one for usual meson electroproduction, i.e. as 1/Q 2 . This is due to the non-vanishing leading twist distribution amplitude for the hybrid meson, which may be normalized thanks to its relation to the energy momentum tensor and to the QCD sum rules technique. The hard amplitude is considered up to next-to-leading order in as and we explore the consequences of fixing the renormalization scale ambiguity through the BLM procedure. (author)

    The measurement of prompt D-meson production as a function of multiplicity in p–Pb collisions at $\\sqrt{s_{\\rm NN}}=5.02$ TeV with the ALICE detector at the LHC is reported. D$^0$, D$^+$ and D$^{*+}$ mesons are reconstructed via their hadronic decay channels in the centre-of-mass rapidity range $-0.96 < y_{\\rm cms} < 0.04$ and transverse momentum interval $1 < p_{\\rm T}<24$ GeV/c. The multiplicity dependence of D-meson production is examined by either comparing yields in p–Pb collisions in different event classes, selected based on the multiplicity of produced particles or zero-degree energy, with those in pp collisions, scaled by the number of binary nucleon–nucleon collisions (nuclear modification factor); as well as by evaluating the per-event yields in p–Pb collisions in different multiplicity intervals normalized to the multiplicity-integrated ones (relative yields). The nuclear modification factors for D$^0$, D$^+$ and D$^{*+}$ are consistent with one another. The D-meson nuclear mod...

  7. QCD factorization beyond leading twist in exclusive processes: rhoT-meson production

    Exclusive processes in hard electroproduction with asymptotic γ * p center of mass energy is one of the best place for understanding QCD in the perturbative Regge limit. The HERA experiment recently provided precise data for rho electroproduction, including all spin density matrix elements. From QCD, it is expected that such a process should factorize between a hard (calculable) coefficient function, and hadronic (P and ρ) matrix elements. Such a factorization is up to now only proven for a longitudinally polarized rho. Within the kt-factorization approach (valid at large s γ * p), we evaluate the impact factor of the transition γ * → ρT taking into account the twist 3 contributions. We show that a gauge invariant expression is obtained with the help of QCD equations of motion. More generally, relying on these equations and on the gauge invariance of the factorized amplitude, the non-perturbative Distribution Amplitudes can be reduced to a minimal set. This opens the way to a consistent treatment of factorization for exclusive processes with a transversally polarized vector meson. (author)

  8. Measurements of production cross-sections and mixing of charm mesons at LHCb

    Muller, Dominik; Parkes, Chris

    The start of the second running period of the Large Hadron Collider in 2015, delivering proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of $\\sqrt{s}=13\\ \\mathrm{TeV}$, marks a new era in the study of particles containing charm quarks with samples of unprecedented size being recorded by the LHCb experiment. This thesis first presents cross-section measurements for $D^0$, $D^+$, $D_s^{+}$, and $D^{*+}$ at $\\sqrt{s}=13\\ \\mathrm{TeV}$, supplemented by a measurement of the same cross-sections at $\\sqrt{s}=5\\ \\mathrm{TeV}$, leading to very precise, double-differential cross-section ratios that are hugely beneficial for constraining theoretical uncertainties in quantum chromodynamics. This is followed by a study into the potential for extracting the parameters describing the oscillation of neutral $D^0$ mesons in $D^0\\rightarrow K^+\\pi^-\\pi^+\\pi^-$ decays, exploiting the very large data samples recorded at 13 TeV. These studies show that this decay can be used to heavily constrain the mixing parameters, leading ...

    The Fermilab experiment E769, a 250 GeV /c tagged hadron beam incident on thin target foils of Be, Al,Cu, and W, measured the $X_F$ and $p^2_t$ distributions of $D^{*\\pm}$ through the decay mode$D^{*\\pm} \\to D^0 \\pi^+, D^0 \\to K^- \\pi^+$. Fitting the distributions to the form $A(1 - X_F)^n$ and $B exp(-bp^2_t)$, we determined $n$ - 3.84 ± 0.20 ± 0.06 and $b$ = 0. 7 48 ± 0.034 ± 0.009, respectively. We observe no significant lea.ding particle ef.~ct suggested by earlier experiments. The dependence of the total cross section on the atomic mass number was determined to be $A^{0.98 \\pm 0,05 \\pm 0.04}$ . The measurements were based on 351 ± 16 fully reconstructed $D^{*\\pm}$ mesons induced by a $\\pi^{\\pm}$ and $K^{\\pm}$ beam. This is the gest available sample of hadroproduced $D^{*\\pm}$.

    The interaction between hadrons and η-mesons is an intensively studied topic. Due to its stength it might lead to the formation of η-mesic nuclei. In order to study the characteristics of this interaction a measurement of the reaction p + d → d + η + p_s_p has been performed at the ANKE spectrometer at the COSY accelerator of the Forschungszentrum Jülich. The two different beam momenta (p_1 = 2.09 GeV/c and p_2 = 2.25 GeV/c) in combination with the Fermi motion inside the target deuteron grant access to the determination of total and differential cross sections in an excess energy range from threshold up to Q = 90 MeV. While the course of the total cross section, especially near threshold, will allow to extract the scattering length a_d_η via an s-wave final state interaction ansatz, the differential cross sections permit to verify the legitimacy of the s-wave assumption.

    We study single spin asymmetries of D{sup 0} and D{sup -} mesons in polarized proton-proton collisions. A two component model is used to describe charm meson production. The production of D mesons occurs by recombination of the constituents present in the initial state as well as by fragmentation of quarks in the final state. This model has proved to describe the production of charm. The recombination component involves a mechanism of spin alignment that ends up in a single spin asymmetry. Experimental measurements of single spin asymmetry for pions at RHIC are compared with the model. Predictions for the asymmetry in D mesons are presented. (orig.)

    Using a nuclear reaction, the new tagged eta meson facility now operating at the French Saturne National Laboratory in Saclay produces eta mesons (together with recoil helium-3 nuclei) by proton bombardment of a deuterium target. The proton beam is extracted from the Saturne synchrotron at 893 MeV, stabilized to 80 keV. This is a scant 1.5 MeV above the reaction threshold and close to the energy where eta production peaks.

    We report the STAR measurement of {psi} meson production in Au + Au and p + p collisions at {radical}s{sub NN} = 200 GeV. Using the event mixing technique, the {psi} spectra and yields are obtained at midrapidity for five centrality bins in Au+Au collisions and for non-singly-diffractive p+p collisions. It is found that the {psi} transverse momentum distributions from Au+Au collisions are better fitted with a single-exponential while the p+p spectrum is better described by a double-exponential distribution. The measured nuclear modification factors indicate that {psi} production in central Au+Au collisions is suppressed relative to peripheral collisions when scaled by the number of binary collisions (). The systematics of versus centrality and the constant {psi}/K{sup -} ratio versus beam species, centrality, and collision energy rule out kaon coalescence as the dominant mechanism for {psi} production.

    The so-called quasi-parton mechanism is considered that enables one to explain production of singly charged dimuons in νsub(μ)(anti νsub(μ))N interactions. The cross sections are obtained for production of charmed mesons anti D 0 , anti D - in the νsub(μ)+N→μsup(-)+ anti D 0 +c+..., anti νsub(μ)+N→μsup(+)+Dsup(-)+c+..., μ+N→μ+anti D 0 +c+..., μ+N→μ+D - +c+...; a contribution from this mechanism to the processes with production of singly charged dimuons and tri-muons is found. Predictions of the quasi-parton mechanism are compared with the experimental data for the dimuon and tri-muon cross sections, as well as for average kinematical characteristics of the fast muon. The conclusion is drawn that the quasiparton mechanism can explain the results of experiments on single-charged dimuons in νsub(μ)(anti νsub(μ))N interactions, makes a noticeable contribution into 2μ events for μN-collisions and determines a considerable part of nonelectromagnetic nature trimuons in the case of νsub(μ)(anti νsub(μ))N and μN-interactions [ru

    The $p_T$-differential production cross sections of the prompt charmed mesons $D^0, D^+, D^{*+}$ and $D_s^+$ and their charge conjugate in the rapidity interval -0.96 < $y_{cms}$ < 0.04 were measured in p-Pb collisions at a centre-of-mass energy $\\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 5.02 TeV with the ALICE detector at the LHC. The nuclear modification factor $R_{pPb}$, quantifying the D-meson yield in p--Pb collisions relative to the yield in pp collisions scaled by the number of binary nucleon-nucleon collisions, is compatible within the 15-20% uncertainties with unity in the transverse momentum interval 1 < $p_T$ < 24 GeV/c. No significant difference among the $R_{pPb}$ of the four D-meson species is observed. The results are described within uncertainties by theoretical calculations that include initial-state effects. The measurement adds experimental evidence that the modification of the momentum spectrum of D mesons observed in Pb-Pb collisions with respect to pp collisions is due to strong final-state effects i...

    The p_{T}-differential production cross sections of the prompt charmed mesons D^{0}, D^{+}, D^{*+}, and D_{s}^{+} and their charge conjugate in the rapidity interval -0.96meson yield in p-Pb collisions relative to the yield in pp collisions scaled by the number of binary nucleon-nucleon collisions, is compatible within the 15%-20% uncertainties with unity in the transverse momentum interval 1meson species is observed. The results are described within uncertainties by theoretical calculations that include initial-state effects. The measurement adds experimental evidence that the modification of the momentum spectrum of D mesons observed in Pb-Pb collisions with respect to pp collisions is due to strong final-state effects induced by hot partonic matter.

    Data are presented on the reaction pbar-p -> omega-omega-pizero at rest from the Crystal Barrel detector. These data identify a strong signal due to f2(1565) -> omega-omega. The relative production from initial pbar-p states 3P2, 3P1 and 1S0 is well determined from omega-omega decay angular correlations; P-state annihilation dominates strongly. A combined fit is made with data on pbar-p -> 3pizero at rest, where f2(1565) -> pizero-pizero is observed.

    Nutritionists encourage improving the diet by combining meat products with fish or other sea-related foods, in order to equilibrate the omega-6/omega-3 ratio. Strong scientific evidence supports the beneficial health effects of a balanced omega-6/omega-3 PUFA (poly unsaturated fatty acids) diets. In the present work, the scientific bases of new functional meat products with both a balanced omega-6/omega-3 ratio and a synergic combination of antioxidants are discussed. The aim is to contribute to the dietary equilibrium omega-6/omega-3 and to increase the antioxidant intake. Conventional meat products supplemented with a specific fatty acids and antioxidants combination led to functional foods with healthier nutritional parameters.

    Cardiovascular disease has had an unquestioned status of the number one cause of death in the US since 1921. Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (ω-3 PUFAs) have cardio-protective benefits. However, egg is typically a poor source of ω-3 PUFAs and, in general, the American diet is low in these cardio-protective fatty acids. Novel, nutritionally enhanced egg products were developed by substituting yolk with ω-3 PUFA-rich flaxseed, menhaden, algae, or krill oil. Experimental egg products matched composition of hen egg (whole egg). The experimental egg products, mixed whole egg, and a liquid egg product (Egg Beaters) were microwave-cooked and compared. Although fat, protein, and moisture contents of experimental egg products matched (P > 0.05) mixed whole egg, experimental egg products had more (P egg. Triglycerides were the main lipid class in all experimental egg products except those developed with krill oil, which had even more phospholipids than mixed whole egg. Analysis of thiobarbituric acid reactive substances showed that lipid oxidation of experimental egg products was lower (P 0.05) to mixed whole egg, except for experimental egg products with krill oil. However, peroxide value showed that all egg samples had minimal oxidation. Experimental egg products developed with menhaden or flaxseed oil had the highest (P egg samples. However, experimental egg products with krill oil likely contained a natural antioxidant, astaxanthin. This study demonstrated an alternative approach to developing novel, nutraceutical egg products. Instead of dietary modification of chicken feed, yolk substitution with ω-3 PUFAs oils resulted in enhancement of ω-3 PUFAs beyond levels possible to achieve by modifying chicken feed.

  2. Single-diffractive production of charmed mesons at the LHC within the k{sub t}-factorization approach

    We discuss the single-diffractive production of cc̄ pairs and charmed mesons at the LHC. For a first time we propose a k{sub t}-factorization approach to the diffractive processes. The transverse momentum dependent diffractive parton distributions are obtained from standard (collinear) diffractive parton distributions used in the literature. In this calculation the transverse momentum of the pomeron is neglected with respect to transverse momentum of partons entering the hard process. We also perform a first evaluation of the cross sections at the LHC using the diffractive transverse momentum dependent parton distributions. The results of the new approach are compared with those of the standard collinear one. Significantly larger cross sections are obtained in the k{sub t}-factorization approach in which some parts of higher-order effects is effectively included. The differences between corresponding differential distributions are discussed. Finally, we present a feasibility study of the process at the LHC using proton tagging technique. The analysis suggests that the measurement of single-diffractive charm production is possible using ATLAS and CMS/TOTEM detectors.

  3. Analysis of D{sup 0} and D{sup *+}-meson production in pp and p-Pb collisions with ALICE at the LHC

    This thesis presents measurements of D-meson production in the central barrel of the ALICE detector in pp and p-Pb collisions. The reconstruction of D{sup 0} mesons in the hadronic channel D{sup 0}→K{sup -}π{sup +} was studied in pp collisions at √(s)=7 TeV using a Bayesian particle identification (PID) method, in order to test the validity of this new approach. Comparisons were made between these results and those obtained with established PID methods. Consistency was found between the different approaches, as well as an increase of the signal-to-background ratio and a similar or greater statistical significance for most of the implementations of the Bayesian approach. Further measurements of D{sup *+}→D{sup 0}π{sup +} were made as a function of charged-particle multiplicity in p-Pb collisions at √(s{sub NN})=5.02 TeV. The aim was to test the role of multi-parton interactions (MPI) and possible collective phenomena in small systems at LHC energies. The results for D{sup *+} mesons were consistent with the other D-meson species studied by ALICE (D{sup 0} and D{sup +}). The measurements against mid-rapidity multiplicity showed consistency with previous results from pp collisions; however, a slower increase of the relative D-meson yield was found as a function of multiplicity at large rapidity for p-Pb collisions than pp collisions. The results for both multiplicity estimators were reproduced by phenomenological models, both with and without viscous hydrodynamics.

    Neutral pion and η meson production in the transverse momentum range 1 < $p_{T}$ < 20 GeV/$c$ have been measured at mid-rapidity by the ALICE experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in central and semi-central Pb-Pb collisions at $\\sqrt{s_{NN}}=2.76$ TeV. These results were obtained using the photon conversion method as well as the PHOS and EMCal detectors. The results extend the upper $p_{T}$ reach of the previous ALICE $\\pi^{0}$ measurements from 12 GeV/$c$ to 20 GeV/$c$ and present the first measurement of $\\eta$ meson production in heavy-ion collisions at the LHC. The $\\eta/\\pi^{0}$ ratio is similar for the two centralities and reaches at high $p_{T}$ a plateau value of 0.457 ± 0.013 (stat) ± 0.018 (syst). A suppression of similar magnitude for $\\pi^{0}$ and $\\eta$ meson production is observed in Pb-Pb collisions with respect to their production in pp collisions scaled by the number of binary nucleon-nucleon collisions. We discuss the results in terms of NLO pQCD predictions and hydrodynami...

    The inclusive production of D{sup {+-}}(2010) mesons in deep inelastic scattering is studied using data recorded by the H1 experiment in the years 1999 to 2000 and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 47.66 pb{sup -1}. The measurement covers the region 2meson production is restricted in transverse momentum to p{sub T}(D{sup *})>1.25 GeV and in pseudorapidity to vertical stroke {eta}(D{sup *}) vertical stroke <1.8. Single and double differential cross sections are compared to leading order and next-to-leading order perturbative QCD predictions.
