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/72364A search for the exotic meson $X(5568)$ with the Collider Detector at Fermilab
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/72361
A search for the exotic meson $X(5568)$ decaying into the $B^0_s \pi^{\pm}$ final state is performed using data corresponding to $9.6 \textrm{fb}^{-1}$ from $p{\bar p}$ collisions at $\sqrt{s} = 1960$ GeV recorded by the Collider Detector at Fermilab. No evidence for this state is found and an upper limit of 6.7\% at the 95\% confidence level is set on the fraction of $B^0_s$ produced through the $X(5568) \rightarrow B^0_s \, \pi^{\pm}$ process.Aaltonen, Timo AnteroTue, 09 Jan 2018 10:37:11 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/72361Study 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/72035Combined Forward-Backward Asymmetry Measurements in Top-Antitop Quark Production at the Tevatron
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/72006
The CDF and D0 experiments at the Fermilab Tevatron have measured the asymmetry between yields of forward- and backward-produced top and antitop quarks based on their rapidity difference and the asymmetry between their decay leptons. These measurements use the full data sets collected in proton-antiproton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of $\sqrt s =1.96$ TeV. We report the results of combinations of the inclusive asymmetries and their differential dependencies on relevant kinematic quantities. The combined inclusive asymmetry is $A_{\mathrm{FB}}^{t\bar{t}} = 0.128 \pm 0.025$. The combined inclusive and differential asymmetries are consistent with recent standard model predictions.Aaltonen, Timo AnteroMon, 02 Oct 2017 08:57:34 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/72006Measurement 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/71935Search 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/71538Observation 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/71424Measurement of the Inclusive-Isolated Prompt-Photon Cross Section in $p\bar{p}$ Collisions using the full CDF Data Set
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/71352
A measurement of the inclusive production cross section of isolated prompt photons in proton-antiproton collisions at center-of-mass energy $\sqrt{s}$=1.96TeV is presented. The results are obtained using the full Run II data sample collected with the Collider Detector at the Fermilab Tevatron, which corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 9.5fb$^{-1}$. The cross section is measured as a function of photon transverse energy, $E_T^{\gamma}$, in the range 30$ < E_T^{\gamma} <$500GeV and in the pseudorapidity region $|\eta^{\gamma}|<$1.0. The results are compared with predictions from parton-shower Monte Carlo models at leading order in quantum chromodynamics (QCD) and from next-to-leading order perturbative QCD calculations. The latter show good agreement with the measured cross section.Aaltonen, Timo AnteroMon, 03 Apr 2017 08:40:54 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/71352Improved 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/70878Precise 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/70635Measurement of the $D^+$-meson production cross section at low transverse momentum in $p\bar{p}$ collisions at $\sqrt{s}=1.96$ TeV
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70580
We report on a measurement of the $D^{+}$-meson production cross section as a function of transverse momentum ($p_T$) in proton-antiproton ($p\bar{p}$) collisions at 1.96 TeV center-of-mass energy, using the full data set collected by the Collider Detector at Fermilab in Tevatron Run II and corresponding to 10 fb$^{-1}$ of integrated luminosity. We use $D^{+} \to K^-\pi^+\pi^+$ decays fully reconstructed in the central rapidity region $|y|<1$ with transverse momentum down to 1.5 GeV/$c$, a range previously unexplored in $p\bar{p}$ collisions. Inelastic $p\bar{p}$-scattering events are selected online using minimally-biasing requirements followed by an optimized offline selection. The $K^-\pi^+\pi^+$ mass distribution is used to identify the $D^+$ signal, and the $D^+$ transverse impact-parameter distribution is used to separate prompt production, occurring directly in the hard scattering process, from secondary production from $b$-hadron decays. We obtain a prompt $D^+$ signal of 2950 candidates corresponding to a total cross section $\sigma(D^+, 1.5 < p_T < 14.5~\mbox{GeV/}c, |y|<1) = 71.9 \pm 6.8 (\mbox{stat}) \pm 9.3 (\mbox{syst})~\mu$b. While the measured cross sections are consistent with theoretical estimates in each $p_T$ bin, the shape of the observed $p_T$ spectrum is softer than the expectation from quantum chromodynamics. The results are unique in $p\bar{p}$ collisions and can improve the shape and uncertainties of future predictions.Aaltonen, Timo AnteroWed, 09 Nov 2016 07:56:04 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70580Measurement 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/70310Determination of the number of $J/\psi$ events with inclusive $J/\psi$ decays
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70201
A measurement of the number of $J/\psi$ events collected with the BESIII detector in 2009 and 2012 is performed using inclusive decays of the $J/\psi$ . The number of $J/\psi$ events taken in 2009 is recalculated to be $(223.7\pm1.4)\times 10^6$, which is in good agreement with the previous measurement, but with significantly improved precision due to improvements in the BESIII software. The number of $J/\psi$ events taken in 2012 is determined to be $(1086.9\pm 6.0)\times 10^6$. In total, the number of $J/\psi$ events collected with the BESIII detector is measured to be $(1310.6\pm 7.0)\times 10^6$, where the uncertainty is dominated by systematic effects and the statistical uncertainty is negligible.Ablikim, MedinaThu, 04 Aug 2016 07:47:13 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/70201Amplitude analysis of the decays $\eta^\prime\rightarrow\pi^+\pi^-\pi^0$ and $\eta^\prime\rightarrow\pi^0\pi^0\pi^0$
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69970
Based on a sample of $1.31\times10^9$ $J/\psi$ events collected with the BESIII detector, an amplitude analysis of the isospin violating decays $\eta^\prime\rightarrow\pi^+\pi^-\pi^0$ and $\eta^\prime\rightarrow\pi^0\pi^0\pi^0$ is performed. Significant $P$-wave contribution from $\eta^\prime\rightarrow\rho^{\pm}\pi^{\mp}$ is observed for the first time in $\eta^\prime\rightarrow\pi^+\pi^-\pi^0$. The branching fraction is determined to be ${\mathcal B}(\eta^\prime\rightarrow\rho^{\pm}\pi^{\mp})=(7.44\pm0.60\pm1.26\pm1.84)\times 10^{-4}$, where the first uncertainty is statistical, the second systematic and the third model dependent. In addition to the non-resonant $S$-wave component, a contribution from the $\sigma$ meson is also essential. The branching fractions of the $S$-wave components are determined as ${\mathcal B}(\eta^\prime\rightarrow\pi^+\pi^-\pi^0)_S=(37.63\pm0.77\pm2.22\pm4.48)\times 10^{-4}$ and ${\mathcal B}(\eta^\prime\rightarrow\pi^0\pi^0\pi^0)=(35.22\pm0.82\pm2.60)\times 10^{-4}$, respectively. The latter one is consistent with previous BESIII measurements.Ablikim, MedinaMon, 04 Jul 2016 11:04:10 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69970Measurement of the $WW$ and $WZ$ production cross section using final states with a charged lepton and heavy-flavor jets in the full CDF Run II data set

We present a measurement of the $WW$ and $WZ$ diboson production cross-sections in a final state consistent with leptonic $W$ boson decay and jets originating from heavy-flavor quarks from either a $W$ or a $Z$ boson decay. This analysis uses the full data set collected with the CDF II detector during Run II of the Tevatron proton-antiproton collider, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 9.4 fb$^{-1}$ at $\sqrt{s}=1.96$ TeV. An analysis of the dijet mass spectrum provides $3.7\sigma$ evidence of the summed production processes of either $WW$ or $WZ$ bosons with a measured cross section of $\sigma_{WW+WZ} = 13.7\pm 3.9$ pb. Independent measurements of the $WW$ and $WZ$ production cross-sections are allowed by the different heavy-flavor decay-patterns of the $W$ and $Z$ bosons and by the analysis of secondary-decay vertices reconstructed within heavy-flavor jets. The productions of $WW$ and of $WZ$ dibosons are independently seen with significances of $2.9\sigma$ and $2.1\sigma$, respectively, with cross sections of $\sigma_{WW}= 9.4\pm 4.2$ pb and $\sigma_{WZ}=3.7^{+2.5}_{-2.2}$ pb. The measurements are consistent with standard-model predictions.Aaltonen, Timo AnteroMon, 04 Jul 2016 11:03:56 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69958Observation of an anomalous line shape of the $\eta^{\prime}\pi^{+}\pi^{-}$ mass spectrum near the $p\bar{p}$ mass threshold in $J/\psi\rightarrow\gamma\eta^{\prime}\pi^{+}\pi^{-}$
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69754
Using $1.09\times10^{9}$ $J/\psi$ events collected by the BESIII experiment in 2012, we study the $J/\psi\rightarrow\gamma\eta^{\prime}\pi^{+}\pi^{-}$ process and observe a significant abrupt change in the slope of the $\eta^{\prime}\pi^{+}\pi^{-}$ invariant mass distribution at the proton-antiproton ($p\bar{p}$) mass threshold. We use two models to characterize the $\eta^{\prime}\pi^{+}\pi^{-}$ line shape around $1.85~\text{GeV}/c^{2}$: one which explicitly incorporates the opening of a decay threshold in the mass spectrum (Flatt\'{e} formula), and another which is the coherent sum of two resonant amplitudes. Both fits show almost equally good agreement with data, and suggest the existence of either a broad state around $1.85~\text{GeV}/c^{2}$ with strong couplings to $p\bar{p}$ final states or a narrow state just below the $p\bar{p}$ mass threshold. Although we cannot distinguish between the fits, either one supports the existence of a $p\bar{p}$ molecule-like state or bound state with greater than $7\sigma$ significance.Ablikim, MedinaWed, 04 May 2016 07:33:13 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69754Measurement of the leptonic decay width of $J/\psi$ using initial state radiation
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69742
Using a data set of 2.93 fb$^{-1}$ taken at a center-of-mass energy of $\sqrt{s}$ = 3.773 GeV with the BESIII detector at the BEPCII collider, we measure the process $e^+e^-\rightarrow J/\psi\gamma\rightarrow \mu^+\mu^-\gamma$ and determine the product of the branching fraction and the electronic width $\mathcal B_{\mu\mu}\cdot \Gamma_{ee} = (333.4 \pm 2.5_{\rm stat} \pm 4.4_{\rm sys})$~eV. Using the earlier-published BESIII result for $\mathcal B_{\mu\mu}$ = (5.973 $\pm$ 0.007$_{\rm stat}$ $\pm$ 0.037$_{\rm sys}$)\%, we derive the $J/\psi$ electronic width $\Gamma_{ee}$~= (5.58 $\pm$ 0.05$_{\rm stat}$ $\pm$ 0.08$_{\rm sys}$) keV.Ablikim, MedinaWed, 04 May 2016 07:33:05 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69742Observation of $h_{c}$ radiative decay $h_{c} \rightarrow \gamma \eta'$ and evidence for $h_{c} \rightarrow \gamma \eta$
http://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69576
A search for radiative decays of the $P$-wave spin singlet charmonium resonance $h_c$ is performed based on $4.48 \times 10^{8}$ $\psi'$ events collected with the BESIII detector operating at the BEPCII storage ring. Events of the reaction channels $h_{c} \rightarrow \gamma \eta'$ and $\gamma \eta$ are observed with a statistical significance of $8.4 \sigma$ and $4.0 \sigma$, respectively, for the first time. The branching fractions of $h_{c} \rightarrow \gamma \eta'$ and $h_{c} \rightarrow \gamma \eta$ are measured to be $\mathcal{B}(h_{c} \rightarrow \gamma \eta')=(1.52 \pm 0.27 \pm 0.29)\times10^{-3}$ and $\mathcal{B}(h_{c} \rightarrow \gamma \eta)=(4.7 \pm 1.5 \pm 1.4)\times10^{-4}$, respectively, where the first errors are statistical and the second are systematic uncertainties.Ablikim, M.Mon, 04 Apr 2016 08:12:54 GMThttp://lt-jds.jinr.ru/record/69576
