    Chiral expansion of the π0γγ\pi^0\rightarrow\gamma\gamma decay width

    Full text link
    A chiral field theory of mesons has been applied to study the contribution of the current quark masses to the π0γγ\pi^0\rightarrow\gamma\gamma decay width at the next leading order. 2%2\% enhancement has been predicted and there is no new parameter.Comment: 9 page

    The influence of reconstruction criteria on the sensitive probes of the symmetry potential

    Full text link
    Different criteria of constructing clusters and tracing back Δ\Delta resonances from the intermediate-energy neutron-rich HICs are discussed by employing the updated UrQMD transport model. It is found that both the phase-space and the coordinate-density criteria affect the single and the double neutron/proton ratios of free nucleons at small transverse momenta, but the influence becomes invisible at large transverse momenta. The effect of different methods of reconstructing freeze-out Δ\Deltas on the Δ0/Δ++\Delta^0/\Delta^{++} ratio is strong in a large kinetic energy region.Comment: 8 pages, 7 fig

    Excitation function of nucleon and pion elliptic flow in relativistic heavy-ion collisions

    Get PDF
    Within a relativistic transport (ART) model for heavy-ion collisions, we show that the recently observed characteristic change from out-of-plane to in-plane elliptic flow of protons in mid-central Au+Au collisions as the incident energy increases is consistent with the calculated results using a stiff nuclear equation of state (K=380 MeV). We have also studied the elliptic flow of pions and the transverse momentum dependence of both the nucleon and pion elliptic flow in order to gain further insight about the collision dynamics.Comment: 8 pages, 2 figure

    Constraints on the CKM angle alpha in the B --> rho rho decays

    Full text link
    Using a data sample of 122 million Upsilon(4S) -> BBbar decays collected with BaBar detector at the PEP-II asymmetric B factory at SLAC, we measure the time-dependent-asymmetry parameters of the longitudinally polarized component in the B0 -> rho^+ rho^- decay as C_L = -0.23 +/- 0.24 (stat) +/- 0.14 (syst) and S_L = -0.19 +/- 0.33 (stat) +/- 0.11 (syst). The B0 -> rho0 rho0 decay mode is also searched for in a data sample of about 227 million BBbar pairs. No significant signal is observed, and an upper limit of 1.1 * 10-6 (90% C.L.) on the branching fraction is set. The penguin contribution to the CKM angle α\alpha uncertainty is measured to be 11 degree. All results are preliminary.Comment: 3 pages, 1 postscript figues, submitted to DPF200

    Correlations of chaotic eigenfunctions: a semiclassical analysis

    Full text link
    We derive a semiclassical expression for an energy smoothed autocorrelation function defined on a group of eigenstates of the Schr\"odinger equation. The system we considered is an energy-conserved Hamiltonian system possessing time-invariant symmetry. The energy smoothed autocorrelation function is expressed as a sum of three terms. The first one is analogous to Berry's conjecture, which is a Bessel function of the zeroth order. The second and the third terms are trace formulae made from special trajectories. The second term is found to be direction dependent in the case of spacing averaging, which agrees qualitatively with previous numerical observations in high-lying eigenstates of a chaotic billiard.Comment: Revtex, 13 pages, 1 postscript figur

    Quark Model Study of The eta Photoproduction: Evidence for a New S11 Resonance?

    Full text link
    An extensive and systematic study of the recent eta photoproduction data up to 1.2 GeV is presented within a chiral constituent quark model. A model embodying all known nucleonic resonances shows clear need for a yet undiscovered third S11 resonance in the second resonance region, for which we determine the mass (1.729 GeV) and the total width (183 MeV). Furthermore, we extract the configuration mixing angles, an important property of the quark-quark interaction in the quark model, for the resonances S11(1535) and S11(1650), as well as for the resonances D13(1520) and D13(1700). Our results agree well with the quark model predictions. In addition, the partial eta N decay widths and/or the photo-excitation helicity amplitudes for the nucleonic resonances S11(1535), S11(1650), P11(1710), P13(1720), D13(1520), D13(1700), D15(1675), and F15(1680) are also obtained in this approach.Comment: 25 pages, 5 figures, submitted to Eur.
