    We report measurements of hadronic final states produced in e+ee^+e^- annihilations from the BaBar and Belle experiments. In particular, we present cross sections measured in several different processes, including two-photon physics, Initial-State Radiation, and exclusive hadron productions at center-of-mass energies near 10.58 GeV. Results are compared with theoretical predictions.Comment: Parallel talk at ICHEP08, Philadelphia, USA, July 2008. 4 pages, LaTeX, 12 eps figure

    Error Patterns

    In coding theory the problem of decoding focuses on error vectors. In the simplest situation code words are (0,1)(0,1)-vectors, as are the received messages and the error vectors. Comparison of a received word with the code words yields a set of error vectors. In deciding on the original code word, usually the one for which the error vector has minimum Hamming weight is chosen. In this note some remarks are made on the problem of the elements 1 in the error vector, that may enable unique decoding, in case two or more code words have the same Hamming distance to the received message word, thus turning error detection into error correction. The essentially new aspect is that code words, message words and error vectors are put in one-one correspondence with graphs

    Discussion on `Characterization of 1-3 piezoelectric polymer composites - a numerical and analytical evaluation procedure for thickness mode vibrations' by C.V. Madhusudhana Rao, G. Prasad, Condens. Matter Phys., 2010, Vol.13, No.1, 13703

    In the paper entitled "Characterization of 1-3 piezoelectric polymer composites - a numerical and analytical evaluation procedure for thickness mode vibrations", the dependence of the thickness electromechanical coupling coefficient on the aspect ratio of piezoceramic fibers is studied by finite element simulation for various volume fractions of piezoceramic fibers in a 1-3 composite. The accuracy of the results is questionable because the boundary condition claiming that `predefined displacements are applied perpendicularly on C+C^+ plane on all nodes' is not suitable for the analysis of 1-3 composite with comparatively large aspect ratio from 0.2 to 1. A discussion regarding this problem and the suggested corrections are presented in this paper.Comment: 4 pages, 3 figure

    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.
