    We discuss how to classify the csˉc{\bar s} meson DsJ(3040)D_{sJ}(3040) recently discovered by the BaBar Collaboration. We consider four possible assignments, together with signatures useful to distinguish among them.Comment: RevTeX, 5 pages, 1 eps figur

    Nuclear Parton Distributions at the future Electron-Ion Collider

    Full text link
    The 2015 nuclear physics long-range plan endorsed the realization of an Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) as the next large construction project after the completion of FRIB. With its high luminosity ( >1033cmβˆ’2sβˆ’1> 10^{33} cm^{-2}s^{-1}), wide kinematic reach in center-of-mass-energy (45GeV to 145GeV) and high lepton and proton beam polarization, an EIC provides an unprecedented opportunity to reach new frontiers in our understanding of the spin and dynamic structure of nuclei. Despite of the success of the HERA collider in investigating the structure of a single nucleon, the partonic structure of nuclei at moderate-to-small Bjorken's xx still remains elusive. We present the evaluated impact of an EIC in extracting the nuclear structure-functions from measurements of the reduced cross section in deep inelastic scattering, including also the case of measuring heavy quark production events. The potential constraints offered by the EIC data in extracting the nuclear parton distribution functions is also discussed.Comment: 5 pages, 4 figures, DIS 2017 Conference proceeding

    GPDs at an EIC

    Full text link
    The feasibility for a measurement of the exclusive production of a real photon, a process although known as Deeply Virtual Compton Scattering (DVCS) at an Electron Ion Collider (EIC) has been explored. DVCS is universally believed to be a golden measurement toward the determination of the Generalized Parton Distribution (GPDs) functions. The high luminosity of the machine, expected in the order of 10^34 cm^-2 s^-1 at the highest center-of-mass energy, together with the large resolution and rapidity acceptance of a newly designed dedicated detector, will open a opportunity for very high precision measurements of DVCS, and thus for the determination of GPDs, providing an important tool toward a 2+1 dimensional picture of the internal structure of the proton and nuclei.Comment: 4 pages, 3 figures, Prepared for the XX Int. Workshop on Deep-Inelastic Scattering and Related Subjects (DIS 2011) - 26-30 March 2012, University of Bon

    Free Boundary Formulation for BVPs on a Semi-Infinite Interval and Non-Iterative Transformation Methods

    Full text link
    This paper is concerned with two examples on the application of the free boundary formulation to BVPs on a semi-infinite interval. In both cases we are able to provide the exact solution of both the BVP and its free boundary formulation. Therefore, these problems can be used as benchmarks for the numerical methods applied to BVPs on a semi-infinite interval and to free BVPs. Moreover, we emphasize how for two classes of free BVPs, we can define non-iterative initial value methods, whereas BVPs are usually solved iteratively. These non-iterative methods can be deduced within Lie's group invariance theory. Then, we show how to apply the non-iterative methods to the two introduced free boundary formulations in order to obtain meaningful numerical results. Finally, we indicate several problems from the literature where our non-iterative transformation methods can be applied.Comment: 30 pages, 7 figures, 4 table
