Observation of $e^{+}e^{-} \to \phi\chi_{c1}$ and $\phi\chi_{c2}$ at $\sqrt{s}$=4.600 GeV
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/72364
Using a data sample collected with the BESIII detector operating at the BEPCII storage ring at a center-of-mass energy of $\sqrt{s}=4.600$ GeV, we search for the production of $e^{+}e^{-} \to \phi\chi_{c0,1,2}$ and the charmonium-like state $Y(4140)$ in the radiative transition $e^{+}e^{-} \to \gamma Y(4140)$ with $Y(4140)$ subsequently decaying into $\phi J/\psi$. The processes $e^{+}e^{-} \to \phi\chi_{c1}$ and $\phi\chi_{c2}$ are observed for the first time, each with a statistical significance of more than 10\sigma, and the Born cross sections are measured to be $(4.2^{+1.7}_{-1.0}\pm 0.3)$ pb and $(6.7^{+3.4}_{-1.7}\pm 0.5)$ pb, respectively, where the first uncertainties are statistical and the second systematic. No significant signals are observed for $e^{+}e^{-} \to \phi\chi_{c0}$ and $e^{+}e^{-} \to \gamma Y(4140)$ and upper limits on the Born cross sections at $90\%$ confidence level are provided at $\sqrt{s}=4.600$ GeV.Ablikim, MedinaTue, 09 Jan 2018 10:37:16 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/72364Technical Design Report for the PANDA Barrel DIRC Detector
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/72175
This documents describes the technical design and the expected performance of the Barrel DIRC detector for the PANDA experiment. The Barrel DIRC will provide hadronic charged particle identification in the polar angle range of $22^\circ$ to $140^\circ$ for particle momenta between 0.5 GeV/c and 3.5 GeV/c. The design is based on the successful BaBar DIRC with several key improvements. The performance and system cost were optimized in detailed detector simulations and validated with full system prototypes using particle beams at GSI and CERN. The final design meets or exceeds the PID goal of clean $\pi/K$ separation with at least 3 standard deviations over the entire phase space of charged kaons in the Barrel DIRC.Singh, B.Thu, 02 Nov 2017 08:13:56 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/72175Longitudinal double-spin asymmetry $A_1^{\rm p}$ and spin-dependent structure function $g_1^{\rm p}$ of the proton at small values of $x$ and $Q^2$
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/72163
We present a precise measurement of the proton longitudinal double-spin asymmetry $A_1^{\rm p}$ and the proton spin-dependent structure function $g_1^{\rm p}$ at photon virtualities $0.006~({\rm GeV}/c)^2<Q^2 < 1~({\rm GeV}/c)^2$ in the Bjorken $x$ range of $4 \times 10^{-5} < x < 4 \times 10^{-2}$. The results are based on data collected by the COMPASS Collaboration at CERN using muon beam energies of $160~{\rm GeV}$ and $200~{\rm GeV}$. The statistical precision is more than tenfold better than that of the previous measurement in this region. In the whole range of $x$, the measured values of $A_1^{\rm p}$ and $g_1^{\rm p}$ are found to be positive. It is for the first time that spin effects are found at such low values of $x$.Aghasyan, M.Thu, 02 Nov 2017 08:13:50 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/72163Study of $J/\psi$ and $\psi(3686)$ decays to $\pi^+\pi^-\eta^\prime$
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/72035
Using the data samples of $1.31\times 10^9$ $J/\psi$ events and $4.48\times 10^8$ $\psi(3686)$ events collected with the BESIII detector, partial wave analyses on the decays $J/\psi$ and $\psi(3686) \to \pi^+\pi^-\eta^\prime$ are performed with a relativistic covariant tensor amplitude approach. The dominant contribution is found to be $J/\psi$ and $\psi(3686)$ decays to $\rho\eta^\prime$. In the $J/\psi$ decay, the branching fraction ${\cal B}(J/\psi\to \rho\eta^\prime)$ is determined to be $(7.90\pm0.19(\mathrm{stat})\pm0.49(\mathrm{sys}))\times 10^{-5}$. Two solutions are found in the $\psi(3686)$ decay, and the corresponding branching fraction ${\cal B}(\psi(3686)\to \rho\eta^\prime)$ is $(1.02\pm0.11(\mathrm{stat})\pm0.24(\mathrm{sys}))\times 10^{-5}$ for the case of constructive interference, and $(5.69\pm1.28(\mathrm{stat})\pm2.36(\mathrm{sys}))\times 10^{-6}$ for destructive interference. As a consequence, the ratios of branching fractions between $\psi(3686)$ and $J/\psi$ decays to $\rho\eta^\prime$ are calculated to be $(12.9\pm1.4(\mathrm{stat})\pm3.1(\mathrm{sys}))$\% and $(7.2\pm1.6(\mathrm{stat})\pm3.0(\mathrm{sys}))$\%, respectively. We also determine the inclusive branching fractions of $J/\psi$ and $\psi(3686)$ decays to $\pi^+\pi^-\eta^\prime$ to be $(1.36\pm0.02(\mathrm{stat})\pm0.08(\mathrm{sys}))\times 10^{-4}$ and $(1.51\pm0.14(\mathrm{stat})\pm 0.23(\mathrm{sys}))\times 10^{-5}$, respectively.Ablikim, M.Mon, 02 Oct 2017 08:58:27 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/72035Transverse-momentum-dependent Multiplicities of Charged Hadrons in Muon-Deuteron Deep Inelastic Scattering
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/71993
A semi-inclusive measurement of charged hadron multiplicities in deep inelastic muon scattering off an isoscalar target was performed using data collected by the COMPASS Collaboration at CERN. The following kinematic domain is covered by the data: photon virtuality $Q^{2}>1$ (GeV/$c$)$^2$, invariant mass of the hadronic system $W > 5$ GeV/$c^2$, Bjorken scaling variable in the range $0.003 < x < 0.4$, fraction of the virtual photon energy carried by the hadron in the range $0.2 < z < 0.8$, square of the hadron transverse momentum with respect to the virtual photon direction in the range 0.02 (GeV/$c)^2 < P_{\rm{hT}}^{2} < 3$ (GeV/$c$)$^2$. The multiplicities are presented as a function of $P_{\rm{hT}}^{2}$ in three-dimensional bins of $x$, $Q^2$, $z$ and compared to previous semi-inclusive measurements. We explore the small-$P_{\rm{hT}}^{2}$ region, i.e. $P_{\rm{hT}}^{2} < 1$ (GeV/$c$)$^2$, where hadron transverse momenta are expected to arise from non-perturbative effects, and also the domain of larger $P_{\rm{hT}}^{2}$, where contributions from higher-order perturbative QCD are expected to dominate. The multiplicities are fitted using a single-exponential function at small $P_{\rm{hT}}^{2}$ to study the dependence of the average transverse momentum $\langle P_{\rm{hT}}^{2}\rangle$ on $x$, $Q^2$ and $z$. The power-law behaviour of the multiplicities at large $P_{\rm{hT}}^{2}$ is investigated using various functional forms. The fits describe the data reasonably well over the full measured range.Aghasyan, M.Mon, 02 Oct 2017 08:56:50 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/71993Measurement of branching fractions for $\psi(3686)\rightarrow\gamma\eta',\gamma\eta$ and $\gamma\pi^{0}$
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/71935
Using a data sample of $448\times10^{6}$ $\psi(3686)$ events collected with the BESIII detector operating at the BEPCII storage ring, the decays $\psi(3686)\rightarrow\gamma\eta$ and $\psi(3686)\rightarrow\gamma\pi^{0}$ are observed with a statistical significance of $7.3\sigma$ and $ 6.7\sigma$, respectively. The branching fractions are measured to be $\mathcal{B}(\psi(3686)\rightarrow\gamma\eta)=(0.85\pm0.18\pm0.05)\times10^{-6}$ and $\mathcal{B}(\psi(3686)\rightarrow\gamma\pi^{0})=(0.95\pm0.16\pm0.05)\times10^{-6}$. In addition, we measure the branching fraction of $\psi(3686)\rightarrow\gamma\eta'$ to be $\mathcal{B}(\psi(3686)\rightarrow\gamma\eta')=(125.1\pm2.2\pm6.2)\times 10^{-6}$, with improved precision compared to previous results.Ablikim, MedinaFri, 01 Sep 2017 09:02:50 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/71935Observation of $X(3872)$ muoproduction at COMPASS
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/71838
We have observed exclusive production of the exotic $X(3872)$ hadron in the reaction $\mu^+~N \rightarrow \mu^+ (J\!/\!\psi\pi^+\pi^-)\pi^{\pm}~N'$ using COMPASS data collected with incoming muons of 160~GeV/$c$ and 200~GeV/$c$ momentum. The statistical significance of the $X(3872)$ signal is 6$\sigma$. The shape of the two-pion mass distribution shows disagreement with previous observations. The product of cross section and branching fraction of the $X(3872)$ decay into $J\!/\!\psi\pi\pi$ is determined to be 71$\pm$28(stat)$\pm$39(syst)~pb.Aghasyan, M.Tue, 01 Aug 2017 08:12:05 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/71838New analysis of $\eta\pi$ tensor resonances measured at the COMPASS experiment
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/71828
We present a new amplitude analysis of the $\eta\pi$ $D$-wave in $\pi^- p\to \eta\pi^- p$ measured by COMPASS. Employing an analytical model based on the principles of the relativistic $S$-matrix, we find two resonances that can be identified with the $a_2(1320)$ and the excited $a_2^\prime(1700)$, and perform a comprehensive analysis of their pole positions. For the mass and width of the $a_2$ we find $M=(1307 \pm 1 \pm 6)$~MeV and $\Gamma=(112 \pm 1 \pm 8)$~MeV, and for the excited state $a_2^\prime$ we obtain $M=(1720 \pm 10 \pm 60)$~MeV and $\Gamma=(280\pm 10 \pm 70)$~MeV, respectively.Jackura, A.Tue, 01 Aug 2017 08:11:46 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/71828Search for $\psi(3686)\to \gamma\eta_c(\eta(1405))\to \gamma \pi^{+}\pi^{-}\pi^{0}$
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/71818
Using a sample of $4.48\times10^{8}$ $\psi(3686)$ events collected with the BESIII detector, a search for the isospin violating decay $\eta_{c}\to\pi^{+}\pi^{-}\pi^{0}$ via $\psi(3686)\to\gamma\eta_{c}$ is presented. No signal is observed, and the upper limit on $\mathcal{B}(\psi(3686)\to \gamma\eta_{c}\to \gamma\pi^{+}\pi^{-}\pi^{0} )$ is determined to be $1.6\times10^{-6}$ at the $90\%$ confidence level. In addition, a search for $\eta(1405)\to f_{0}(980)\pi^{0}$ in $\psi(3686)$ radiative decays is performed. No signal is observed, and the branching fraction $\mathcal{B}(\psi(3686)\to\gamma\eta(1405)\to \gamma f_{0}(980)\pi^{0}\to\gamma \pi^+\pi^-\pi^0 )$ is calculated to be less than $ 5.2\times10^{-7}$ at the $90\%$ confidence level.Ablikim, MedinaTue, 01 Aug 2017 08:10:34 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/71818Determination of spin and parity of the $Z_c(3900)$
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/71728
The spin and parity of the $Z_c(3900)^\pm$ state are determined to be $J^P=1^+$ with a statistical significance larger than $7\sigma$ over other quantum numbers in a partial wave analysis of the process $e^+e^-\to \pi^+\pi^-J/\psi$. We use a data sample of 1.92 fb$^{-1}$ accumulated at $\sqrt{s}=4.23$ and 4.26 GeV with the BESIII experiment. When parameterizing the $Z_c(3900)^\pm$ with a Flatte-like formula, we determine its pole mass $M_\textrm{pole}=(3881.2\pm4.2_\textrm{stat}\pm52.7_\textrm{syst})\textrm{MeV}/c^2$ and pole width $\Gamma_\textrm{pole}=(51.8\pm4.6_\textrm{stat}\pm36.0_\textrm{syst})\textrm{MeV}$. We also measure cross sections for the process $e^+e^-\to Z_c(3900)^+\pi^-+c.c.\to J/\psi\pi^+\pi^-$ and determine an upper limit at the 90\% confidence level for the process $e^+e^-\to Z_c(4020)^+\pi^-+c.c.\to J/\psi\pi^+\pi^-$.Ablikim, MedinaTue, 04 Jul 2017 09:11:30 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/71728Measurement of cross sections of the interactions $e^+e^-\rightarrow \phi\phi\omega$ and $e^+e^-\rightarrow \phi\phi\phi$ at center-of-mass energies from 4.008 to 4.600 GeV
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/71699
Using data samples collected with the BESIII detector at the BEPCII collider at six center-of-mass energies between 4.008 and 4.600 GeV, we observe the processes $e^+e^-\rightarrow \phi\phi\omega$ and $e^+e^-\rightarrow \phi\phi\phi$. The Born cross sections are measured and the ratio of the cross sections $\sigma(e^+e^-\rightarrow \phi\phi\omega)/\sigma(e^+e^-\rightarrow \phi\phi\phi)$ is estimated to be $1.75\pm0.22\pm0.19$ averaged over six energy points, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second is systematic. The results represent first measurements of these interactions.Ablikim, MedinaTue, 04 Jul 2017 09:10:49 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/71699Evidence for $e^{+}e^{-} \to \gamma\eta_c(1S)$ at center-of-mass energies between 4.01 and 4.60 GeV
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/71538
We present first evidence for the process $e^+e^-\to \gamma\eta_c(1S)$ at six center-of-mass energies between 4.01 and 4.60~GeV using data collected by the BESIII experiment operating at BEPCII. These data sets correspond to a total integrated luminosity of 4.6~fb$^{-1}$. We measure the Born cross section at each energy using a combination of twelve $\eta_c(1S)$ decay channels. Because the significance of the signal is marginal at each energy ($\le3.0\sigma$), we also combine all six energies under various assumptions for the energy-dependence of the cross section. If the process is assumed to proceed via the $Y(4260)$, we measure a peak Born cross section $\sigma_{\mathrm{ peak}}(e^+e^-\to\gamma\eta_c(1S)) = 2.11 \pm 0.49 (\mathrm{stat.}) \pm 0.36 (\mathrm{syst.})$~pb with a statistical significance of 4.2$\sigma$.Ablikim, MedinaThu, 01 Jun 2017 07:22:32 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/71538First measurement of transverse-spin-dependent azimuthal asymmetries in the Drell-Yan process
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/71468
The first measurement of transverse-spin-dependent azimuthal asymmetries in the pion-induced Drell-Yan (DY) process is reported. We use the CERN SPS 190 GeV/$c$, $\pi^{-}$ beam and a transversely polarized ammonia target. Three azimuthal asymmetries giving access to different transverse-momentum-dependent (TMD) parton distribution functions (PDFs) are extracted using dimuon events with invariant mass between 4.3 GeV/$c^2$ and 8.5 GeV/$c^2$. The observed sign of the Sivers asymmetry is found to be consistent with the fundamental prediction of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) that the Sivers TMD PDFs extracted from DY have a sign opposite to the one extracted from semi-inclusive deep-inelastic scattering (SIDIS) data. We present two other asymmetries originating from the pion Boer-Mulders TMD PDFs convoluted with either the nucleon transversity or pretzelosity TMD PDFs. These DY results are obtained at a hard scale comparable to that of a recent COMPASS SIDIS measurement and hence allow unique tests of fundamental QCD universality predictions.Aghasyan, M.Tue, 02 May 2017 07:55:05 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/71468Observation of $e^{+}e^{-} \to \eta h_{c}$ at center-of-mass energies from 4.085 to 4.600 GeV
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/71424
We observe for the first time the process $e^{+}e^{-} \rightarrow \eta h_c$ with data collected by the BESIII experiment. Significant signals are observed at the center-of-mass energy $\sqrt{s}=4.226$ GeV, and the Born cross section is measured to be $(9.5^{+2.2}_{-2.0} \pm 2.7)$ pb. Evidence for $\eta h_c$ is observed at $\sqrt{s}=4.358$ GeV with a Born cross section of $(10.0^{+3.1}_{-2.7} \pm 2.6)$ pb, and upper limits on the production cross section at other center-of-mass energies between 4.085 and 4.600 GeV are determined.Ablikim, MedinaTue, 02 May 2017 07:53:33 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/71424First measurement of the Sivers asymmetry for gluons from SIDIS data
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/71041
The Sivers function describes the correlation between the transverse spin of a nucleon and the transverse motion of its partons. It was extracted from measurements of the azimuthal asymmetry of hadrons produced in semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering of leptons off transversely polarised nucleon targets, and it turned out to be non-zero for quarks. In this letter the evaluation of the Sivers asymmetry for gluons in the same process is presented. The analysis method is based on a Monte Carlo simulation that includes three hard processes: photon-gluon fusion, QCD Compton scattering and leading-order virtual-photon absorption process. The Sivers asymmetries of the three processes are simultaneously extracted using the LEPTO event generator and a neural network approach. The method is applied to samples of events containing at least two hadrons with large transverse momentum from the COMPASS data taken with a 160 GeV/$c$ muon beam scattered off transversely polarised deuterons and protons. With a significance of more than two standard deviations a negative value is obtained for the gluon Sivers asymmetry. The result of a similar analysis for a Collins-like asymmetry for gluons is consistent with zero.Adolph, C.Thu, 02 Feb 2017 08:16:07 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/71041Improved measurements of branching fractions for $\eta_c\to\phi\phi$ and $\omega\phi$
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70878
Using $(223.7\pm1.4)\times10^6$ $J/\psi$ events accumulated with the BESIII detector, we study $\eta_c$ decays to $\phi\phi$ and $\omega\phi$ final states. The branching fraction of $\eta_c\to\phi\phi$ is measured to be $Br(\eta_c\to\phi\phi)=(2.1\pm0.1\pm0.3\pm0.5)\times10^{-3}$, where the first uncertainty is statistical, the second is systematic, and the third is from the uncertainty of $Br(J/\psi\to\gamma\eta_c)$. No significant signal for the double OZI-suppressed decay of $\eta_c\to\omega\phi$ is observed, and the upper limit on the branching fraction is determined to be $Br(\eta_c\to\omega\phi)<2.5\times 10^{-4}$ at the 90\% confidence level.Ablikim, MedinaMon, 09 Jan 2017 09:27:04 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70878Final COMPASS results on the deuteron spin-dependent structure function $g_1^{\rm d}$ and the Bjorken sum rule
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70859
Final results are presented from the inclusive measurement of deep-inelastic polarised-muon scattering on longitudinally polarised deuterons using a $^6$LiD target. The data were taken at $160~{\rm GeV}$ beam energy and the results are shown for the kinematic range $1~({\rm GeV}/c)^2 < Q^2 < 100~({\rm GeV}/c)^2$ in photon virtuality, $0.004<x<0.7$ in the Bjorken scaling variable and $W > 4~{\rm GeV}/c^2$ in the mass of the hadronic final state. The deuteron double-spin asymmetry $A_1^{\rm d}$ and the deuteron longitudinal-spin structure function $g_1^{\rm d}$ are presented in bins of $x$ and $Q^2$. Towards lowest accessible values of $x$, $g_1^{\rm d}$ decreases and becomes consistent with zero within uncertainties. The presented final $g_1^{\rm d}$ values together with the recently published final $g_1^{\rm p}$ values of COMPASS are used to again evaluate the Bjorken sum rule and perform the QCD fit to the $g_1$ world data at next-to-leading order of the strong coupling constant. In both cases, changes in central values of the resulting numbers are well within statistical uncertainties. The flavour-singlet axial charge $a_0$, {which is identified in the $\overline{\rm MS}$ renormalisation scheme with the total contribution of quark helicities to the nucleon spin}, is extracted from only the COMPASS deuteron data with negligible extrapolation uncertainty: $a_0 (Q^2 = 3~({\rm GeV}/c)^2) = 0.32 \pm 0.02_{\rm stat} \pm0.04_{\rm syst} \pm 0.05_{\rm evol}$. Together with the recent results on the proton spin structure function $g_1^{\rm p}$, the results on $g_1^{\rm d}$ constitute the COMPASS legacy on the measurements of $g_1$ through inclusive spin-dependent deep inelastic scattering.Adolph, C.Mon, 09 Jan 2017 09:26:41 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70859Precise measurement of the $e^+e^-\to \pi^+\pi^-J/\psi$ cross section at center-of-mass energies from 3.77 to 4.60 GeV
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70760
The cross section for the process $e^+e^-\to \pi^+\pi^-J/\psi$ is measured precisely at center-of-mass energies from 3.77 to 4.60 GeV using 9 fb$^{-1}$ of data collected with the BESIII detector operating at the BEPCII storage ring. Two resonant structures are observed in a fit to the cross section. The first resonance has a mass of $(4222.0\pm 3.1\pm 1.4)$~MeV/$c^2$ and a width of $(44.1\pm 4.3\pm 2.0)$~MeV, while the second one has a mass of $(4320.0\pm 10.4 \pm 7.0)$~MeV/$c^2$ and a width of $(101.4^{+25.3}_{-19.7}\pm 10.2)$~MeV, where the first errors are statistical and second ones systematic. The first resonance is near $4.22$~GeV/$c^2$, corresponding to the so-called $Y(4260)$ resonance reported by previous experiments. However, our measured mass is lower and the width is narrower than previous measurements. The second structure is observed in $e^+e^-\to \pi^+\pi^-J/\psi$ for the first time. The statistical significance is estimated to be larger than $7.6\sigma$.Ablikim, MedinaFri, 02 Dec 2016 06:42:34 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70760Observation of $\Lambda^+_{c}\to nK^0_S\pi^+$
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70719
We report the first direct measurement of decays of the $\Lambda^+_c$ baryon involving the neutron. The analysis is performed using 567 pb$^{-1}$ of $e^+e^-$ collision data collected at $\sqrt{s}=4.599$ GeV with the BESIII detector at the BEPCII collider. We observe the decay $\Lambda^+_{c}\rightarrow n K^0_S\pi^+$ and measure the absolute branching fraction to be $\mathcal{B}({\Lambda^+_{c}\rightarrow n K^0_S\pi^+})=(1.82\pm0.23({\rm stat})\pm0.11({\rm syst}))\%$. A comparison to $\mathcal{B}({\Lambda^+_{c}\rightarrow p(\bar{K}\pi)^0})$ provides an important test of isospin symmetry and final state interactions.Ablikim, MedinaFri, 02 Dec 2016 06:41:46 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70719Measurements of the branching fractions for $D^+\to K^0_SK^0_SK^+$, $K^0_SK^0_S\pi^+$ and $D^0\to K^0_SK^0_S$, $K^0_SK^0_SK^0_S$
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70716
By analyzing $2.93\ \rm fb^{-1}$ of data taken at the $\psi(3770)$ resonance peak with the BESIII detector, we measure the branching fractions for the hadronic decays $D^+\to K^0_SK^0_S K^+$, $D^+\to K^0_SK^0_S \pi^+$, $D^0\to K^0_S K^0_S$ and $D^0\to K^0_SK^0_SK^0_S$. They are determined to be ${\mathcal B}(D^+\to K^0_SK^0_SK^+)=(2.54 \pm 0.05_{\rm stat.} \pm 0.12_{\rm sys.})\times 10^{-3}$, ${\mathcal B}(D^+\to K^0_SK^0_S\pi^+)=(2.70 \pm 0.05_{\rm stat.} \pm 0.12_{\rm sys.})\times 10^{-3}$, ${\mathcal B}(D^0\to K^0_SK^0_S)=(1.67 \pm 0.11_{\rm stat.} \pm 0.11_{\rm sys.})\times 10^{-4}$ and ${\mathcal B}(D^0\to K^0_SK^0_SK^0_S)=(7.21 \pm 0.33_{\rm stat.} \pm 0.44_{\rm sys.})\times 10^{-4}$, where the second one is measured for the first time and the others are measured with significantly improved precision over the previous measurements.Ablikim, MedinaFri, 02 Dec 2016 06:41:40 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70716Measurement of the Absolute Branching Fraction for $\Lambda_c^+\rightarrow \Lambda \mu^+\nu_{\mu}$
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70714
We report the first measurement of the absolute branching fraction for $\Lambda^+_{c}\rightarrow \Lambda \mu^+\nu_{\mu}$. This measurement is based on a sample of $e^+e^-$ annihilation data at a center-of-mass energy of $\sqrt{s}=4.6$ GeV collected with the BESIII detector at the BEPCII storage rings. The sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 567 pb$^{-1}$. The branching fraction is determined to be $\mathcal B({\Lambda^+_c\rightarrow \Lambda \mu^+\nu_{\mu}})=(3.49\pm0.46({\rm stat})\pm0.27({\rm syst}))\%$. In addition, we calculate the ratio $\mathcal{B}(\Lambda^+_c\rightarrow \Lambda \mu^+\nu_{\mu})/\mathcal{B}(\Lambda^+_c\rightarrow \Lambda e^+\nu_{e})$ to be $0.96\pm0.16({\rm stat})\pm0.04({\rm syst})$.Ablikim, MedinaFri, 02 Dec 2016 06:41:38 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70714Amplitude analysis of the $\chi_{c1} \to \eta\pi^+\pi^-$ decays
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70635
Using $448.0 \times 10^6$~$\psi(3686)$ events collected with the BESIII detector, an amplitude analysis is performed for $\psi(3686)\to\gamma\chi_{c1}$, $\chi_{c1}\to\eta\pi^+\pi^-$ decays. The most dominant two-body structure observed is $a_0(980)^{\pm}\pi^{\mp}$; $a_0(980)^{\pm}\to\eta\pi^{\pm}$. The $a_0(980)$ line shape is modeled using a dispersion relation, and a significant non-zero $a_0(980)$ coupling to the $\eta^{\prime}\pi$ channel is measured. We observe $\chi_{c1}\to a_2(1700)\pi$ production for the first time, with a significance larger than 17$\sigma$. The production of mesons with exotic quantum numbers, $J^{PC}=1^{-+}$, is investigated, and upper limits for the branching fractions $\chi_{c1}\to \pi_1(1400)^{\pm}\pi^{\mp}$, $\chi_{c1}\to \pi_1(1600)^{\pm}\pi^{\mp}$, and $\chi_{c1}\to\pi_1(2015)^{\pm}\pi^{\mp}$, with subsequent $\pi_1(X)^{\pm} \to \eta\pi^{\pm}$ decay, are determined.Ablikim, MedinaWed, 09 Nov 2016 07:57:32 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70635Azimuthal asymmetries of charged hadrons produced in high-energy muon scattering off longitudinally polarised deuterons
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70419
Single hadron azimuthal asymmetries in the cross sections of positive and negative hadron production in muon semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering off longitudinally polarised deuterons are determined using the 2006 COMPASS data and also all deuteron COMPASS data. For each hadron charge, the dependence of the azimuthal asymmetry on the hadron azimuthal angle $\phi$ is obtained by means of a five-parameter fitting function that besides a $\phi$-independent term includes four modulations predicted by theory: $\sin\phi$, $\sin 2 \phi$, $\sin 3\phi$ and $\cos\phi$. The amplitudes of the five terms have been first extracted for the data integrated over all kinematic variables. In further fits, the $\phi$-dependence is determined as a function of one of three kinematic variables (Bjorken-$x$, fractional energy of virtual photon taken by the outgoing hadron and hadron transverse momentum), while disregarding the other two. Except the $\phi$-independent term, all the modulation amplitudes are very small, and no clear kinematic dependence could be observed within experimental uncertainties.Adolph, CTue, 04 Oct 2016 08:26:24 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70419Sivers asymmetry extracted in SIDIS at the hard scale of the Drell-Yan process at COMPASS
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70380
Proton transverse-spin azimuthal asymmetries are extracted from the COMPASS 2010 semi-inclusive hadron measurements in deep inelastic muon-nucleon scattering in those four regions of the photon virtuality $Q^2$, which correspond to the four regions of the di-muon mass $\sqrt{Q^2}$ used in the ongoing analysis of the COMPASS Drell-Yan measurements. This allows for a future direct comparison of the nucleon transverse-momentum-dependent parton distribution functions extracted from these two alternative measurements. Various two-dimensional kinematic dependences are presented for the azimuthal asymmetries induced by the Sivers transverse-momentum-dependent parton distribution function. The integrated Sivers asymmetries are found to be positive with an accuracy that appears to be sufficient to test the sign change of the Sivers function predicted by Quantum Chromodynamics.Adolph, CTue, 04 Oct 2016 08:24:35 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70380Measurement of Singly Cabibbo-Suppressed Decays $\Lambda_c^{+}\to p\pi^{+}\pi^{-}$ and $\Lambda_c^{+}\to pK^{+}K^{-}$
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70310
Using 567 $pb^{-1}$ of data collected with the BESIII detector at a center-of-mass energy of $\sqrt{s}=$ 4.599 $GeV$, near the $\Lambda_{c}^{+}\Lambda_{c}^{-}$ threshold, we study the singly Cabibbo-suppressed decays $\Lambda_c^{+}\to p\pi^{+}\pi^{-}$ and $\Lambda_c^{+}\to pK^{+}K^{-}$. By normalizing with respect to the Cabibbo-favored decay $\Lambda_c^{+}\to pK^{-}\pi^{+}$, we obtain ratios of branching fractions: $\frac{\mathcal{B}(\Lambda_c^{+}\to p\pi^{+}\pi^{-})}{\mathcal{B}(\Lambda_c^{+}\to pK^{-}\pi^{+})}$ = $(6.70 \pm 0.48 \pm 0.25)\%$, $\frac{\mathcal{B}(\Lambda_c^{+}\to p\phi)}{\mathcal{B}(\Lambda_c^{+}\to pK^{-}\pi^{+})}$ = $(1.81 \pm 0.33 \pm 0.13)\%$, and $\frac{\mathcal{B}(\Lambda_c^{+}\to pK^{+}K^{-}_{\text{non-}\phi})}{\mathcal{B}(\Lambda_c^{+}\to pK^{-}\pi^{+})}$ = $(9.36 \pm 2.22 \pm 0.71)\times10^{-3}$, where the uncertainties are statistical and systematic, respectively. The absolute branching fractions are also presented. Among these measurements, the decay $\Lambda_c^{+}\to p\pi^{+}\pi^{-}$ is observed for the first time, and the precision of the branching fraction for $\Lambda_c^{+}\to pK^{+}K^{-}_{\text{non-}\phi}$ and $\Lambda_c^{+}\to p\phi$ is significantly improved.Ablikim, MedinaFri, 02 Sep 2016 11:24:01 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70310
