8 8 What is the mission ? Particle physics at small distances is well understood One Boson Exchange, Heavy Quark Limits This is not true at large distances Hadronization, Light mesons are barely understood compared to their abundance Understanding interaction/dynamics of light hadrons will improve our knowledge about non-perturbative QCD parameterizations will give provide toolkit to analyze heavy quark processes thus an important tool also for precise standard model tests We need Appropriate parameterizations for the multi-particle phase space A translation from the parameterizations to effective degrees of freedom for a deeper understanding of QCD

9 9 Goal For whatever you need the parameterization of the n-Particle phase space It contains the static properties of the unstable (resonant) particles within the decay chain like mass width spin and parities as well as properties of the initial state and some constraints from the experimental setup/measurement The main problem is, you dont need just a good description, you need the right one Many solutions may look alike but only one is right

10 10 Intermediate State Mixing Many states may contribute to a final state not only ones with well defined (already measured) properties not only expected ones Many mixing parameters are poorly known K-phases SU(3) phases In addition also D/S mixing (b 1, a 1 decays)

14 14 The first plots τ/θ-Puzzle Dalitz applied it first to K L -decays The former τ/θ puzzle with only a few events goal was to determine spin and parity And he never called them Dalitz plots

15 15 Interference problem PWA The phase space diagram in hadron physics shows a pattern due to interference and spin effects This is the unbiased measurement What has to be determined ? Analogy Optics PWA # lamps # level # slits # resonances positions of slits masses sizes of slits widths but only if spins are properly assigned bias due to hypothetical spin-parity assumption Optics Dalitz plot

25 25 Dynamical Functions are Complicated Search for resonance enhancements is a major tool in meson spectroscopy The Breit-Wigner Formula was derived for a single resonance appearing in a single channel But: Nature is more complicated Resonances decay into several channels Several resonances appear within the same channel Thresholds distort line shapes due to available phase space A more general approach is needed for a detailed understanding (see last lecture!)

26 26 Isobar Model Generalization construct any many-body system as a tree of subsequent two-body decays the overall process is dominated by two-body processes the two-body systems behave identical in each reaction different initial states may interfere We need need two-body spin-algebra various formalisms need two-body scattering formalism final state interaction, e.g. Breit-Wigner Isobar

27 27 The Full Amplitude For each node an amplitude f(I,I 3,s,Ω) is obtained. The full amplitude is the sum of all nodes. Summed over all unobservables

29 29 Header – Spin Formalisms Spin Formalisms Introduction and Concepts Spin Formalisms Dynamical Functions Technical Issues

30 30 Formalisms – on overview Tensor formalisms in non-relativistic (Zemach) or covariant form Fast computation, simple for small L and S Spin-projection formalisms where a quantization axis is chosen and proper rotations are used to define a two-body decay Efficient formalisms, even large L and S easy to handle Formalisms based on Lorentz invariants (Rarita-Schwinger) where each operator is constructed from Mandelstam variables only Elegant, but extremely difficult for large L and S

31 31 How To Construct a Formalism Key steps are Definition of single particle states of given momentum and spin component (momentum-states), Definition of two-particle momentum-states in the s-channel center-of-mass system and of amplitudes between them, Transformation to states and amplitudes of given total angular momentum (J-states), Symmetry restrictions on the amplitudes, Derive Formulae for observable quantities.

32 32 Zemach Formalism For particle with spin S traceless tensor of rank S with indices Similar for orbital angular momentum L

33 33 Example: Zemach – pp (0 -+ )f 2 π 0 Construct total spin 0 amplitude Angular distribution (Intensity) A=A f 2 π x A ππ

34 34 The Original Zemach Paper

35 35 Spin-Projection Formalisms Differ in choice of quantization axis Helicity Formalism parallel to its own direction of motion Transversity Formalism the component normal to the scattering plane is used Canonical (Orbital) Formalism the component m in the incident z-direction is diagonal

36 36 Generalized Single Particle State In general all single particle states are derived from a lorentz transformation and the rotation of the basic state with the Wigner rotation

38 38 Rotation of States Canonical SystemHelicity System

39 39 Single Particle State Canonical 1) momentum vector is rotated via z-direction. Secondly 2) absolute value of the momentum is Lorentz boosted along z 3) z-axis is rotated to the momentum direction

40 40 Single Particle State Helicity 1) z-axis is rotated to the momentum direction 2) Lorentz Boost Therefore the new z-axis, z, is parallel to the momentum

41 41 Two-Particle State Canonical constructed from two single-particle states (back-to-back) Couple s and t to S Couple L and S to J Spherical Harmonics

42 42 Two-Particle State Helicity similar procedure no recoupling needed normalization

43 43 Completeness and Normalization Canonical completeness normalization Helicity completeness normalization

44 44 Canonical From two-particle state LS-Coefficients Canonical Decay Amplitudes

45 45 Helicity Decay Amplitudes Helicity From two-particle state Helicity amplitude

46 46 Spin Density and Observed Number of Events To finally calculate the intensity i.e. the number of events observed Spin density of the initial state Sum over all unobservables taking into account

53 53 f 2ππ (Rates) Amplitude has to be symmetrized because of the final state particles

54 54 ω π 0 γ (Ansatz) Initial:ωI G (J PC ) = 0 - (1 -- ) Final:π 0 I G (J PC ) = 1 - (0 -+ ) γI G (J PC ) = 0(1 -- ) Only odd angular momenta, since η ω =η π η γ (-1) l Only photon contributes to total spin s=s π +s γ Ansatz

55 55 ω π 0 γ (Rates) λ γ =±1 do not interfere, λ γ =0 does not exist for real photons Rate depends on density matrix Choose uniform density matrix as an example

56 56 f 0,2γγ (Ansatz) Initial:f 0,2 I G (J PC ) = 0 + (0,2 ++ ) Final:γI G (J PC ) = 0(1 -- ) Only even angular momenta, since η f =η γ 2 (-1) l Total spin s=2s γ =2, l=0,2 (f 0 ), l=0,2,4 (f 2 ) Ansatz

57 57 f 0,2 γγ (contd) Ratio between a 00 and a 22 is not measurable Problem even worse for J=2

58 58 f 0,2γγ (contd) Usual assumption J=λ=2

59 59 pp (2 ++ ) ππ Proton antiproton in flight into two pseudo scalars Initial:ppJ,M=0,±1 Final:πI G (J PC ) = 1 - (0 -+ ) Ansatz Problem: d-functions are not orthogonal, if φ is not observed ambiguities remain in the amplitude – polarization is needed

60 60 pp π 0 ω Two step process First step ppπ 0 ω - Second step ωπ 0 γ Combine the amplitudes helicity constant a ω,11 factorizes and is unimportant for angular distributions

62 62 General Statements Flat angular distributions General rules for spin 0 initial state has spin 0 0 any both final state particles have spin 0 J 0+0 Special rules for isotropic density matrix and unobserved azimuth angle one final state particle has spin 0 and the second carries the same spin as the initial state J J+0

63 63 Moments Analysis Consider reaction Total differential cross section expand H leading to

64 64 Moments Analysis contd Define now a density tensor the d-function products can be expanded in spherical harmonics and the density matrix gets absorbed in a spherical moment

72 72 S-Matrix Differential cross section Scattering amplitude Total scattering cross section S-Matrix with and

73 73 Harmonic Oscillator Free oscillator Damped oscillator Solution External periodic force Oscillation strength and phase shift Lorentz function

74 74 T-Matrix from Scattering Back to Schrödingers equation Incoming wave Solves the equation solution without interaction solution with interaction incoming wave outgoing wave inelasticity and phase shift

75 75 T-Matrix from Scattering (contd) Scattering wave function Scattering amplitude and T-Matrix Example: ππ-Scattering below 1 GeV/c 2

76 76 (In-)Elastic cross sections and T-Matrix Total cross section Identify elastic and inelastic part using the optical theorem

77 77 Breit-Wigner Function Wave function for an unstable particle Fourier transformation for E dependence Finally our first Breit-Wigner

78 78 Dressed Resonances – T-Matrix & Field Theory Suppose we have a resonance with mass m 0 We can describe this with a propagator But we may have a self-energy term leading to

79 79 T-Matrix Perturbation We can have an infinite number of loops inside our propagator every loop involves a coupling b, so if b is small, this converges like a geometric series +... = + +

80 80 T-Matrix Perturbation – Retaining Breit-Wigner So we get and the full amplitude with a dressed propagator leads to which is again a Breit-Wigner like function, but the bare energy E 0 has now changed into E 0 - < {b}

81 81 Relativistic Breit-Wigner By migrating from Schrödingers equation (non-relativistic) to Klein-Gordons equation (relativistic) the energy term changes different energy-momentum relation E=p 2 /m vs. E 2 =m 2 c 4 +p 2 c 2 The propagators change to s R -s from m R -m Intensity I=ΨΨ * Phase δArgand Plot

82 82 Barrier Factors - Introduction At low energies, near thresholds but is not valid far away from thresholds -- otherwise the width would explode and the integral of the Breit-Wigner diverges Need more realistic centrifugal barriers known as Blatt-Weisskopf damping factors We start with the semi-classical impact parameter and use the approximation for the stationary solution of the radial differential equation with we obtain

83 83 Blatt-Weisskopf Barrier Factors The energy dependence is usually parameterized in terms of spherical Hankel-Functions we define F l (q) with the following features Main problem is the choice of the scale parameter q R =q scale

84 84 Blatt-Weisskopf Barrier Factors (l=0 to 3) Usage

85 85 Barrier factors Scales and Formulae formula was derived from a cylindrical potential the scale (197.3 MeV/c) may be different for different processes valid in the vicinity of the pole definition of the breakup- momentum Breakup-momentum may become complex (sub-threshold) set to zero below threshold need =F l (q)dBW F l (q)~q l complex even above threshold meaning of mass and width are mixed up Resonant daughters Re(q) Im(q) threshold

86 86 T-Matrix Unitarity Relations Unitarity is a basic feature since probability has to be conserved T is unitary if S is unitary since we get in addition

87 87 T-Matrix Dispersion Relations Cauchy Integral on a closed contour By choosing proper contours and some limits one obtains the dispersion relation for T l (s) Satisfying this relation with an arbitrary parameterization is extremely difficult and is dropped in many approaches

88 88 K-Matrix Definition T is n x n matrix representing n incoming and n outgoing channel If the matrix K is a real and symmetric also n x n then the T is unitary by construction

89 89 K-Matrix Properties T is then easily computed from K T and K commute K is the Caley transform of S Some more properties

90 90 Example: ππ-Scattering 1 channel2 channel

91 91 Relativistic Treatment So far we did not care about relativistic kinematics covariant description or and with therefore and K is changed as well

92 92 Relativistic Treatment – 2 channel S-Matrix 2 channel T-Matrix to be compared with the non-relativistic case

93 93 K-Matrix Poles Now we introduce resonances as poles (propagators) One may add c ij a real polynomial of m 2 to account for slowly varying background (not experimental background!!!) Width/Lifetime For a single channel and one pole we get

94 94 Example: 1x2 K-Matrix Strange effects in subdominant channels Scalar resonance at 1500 MeV/c 2, Γ=100 MeV/c 2 All plots show ππ channel Blue: ππ dominated resonance (Γ ππ =80 MeV and Γ KK =20 MeV) Red: KK dominated resonance (Γ KK =80 MeV and Γ ππ =20 MeV) Look at the tiny phase motion in the subdominant channel Intensity I=ΨΨ * Phase δArgand Plot

95 95 Example: 2x1 K-Matrix Overlapping Poles two resonances overlapping with different (100/50 MeV/c 2 ) widths are not so dramatic (except the strength) The width is basically added FWHM 2 BW K-Matrix

96 96 Example: 1x2 K-Matrix Nearby Poles Two nearby poles (1.27 and 1.5 GeV/c 2 ) show nicely the effect of unitarization 2 BW K-Matrix

97 97 Example: Flatté 1x2 K-Matrix 2 channels for a single resonance at the threshold of one of the channels with Leading to the T-Matrix and with we get

98 98 Flatté Example a 0 (980) decaying into πη and KK BW πη Flatte πη Flatte KK Intensity I=ΨΨ * Phase δ Real Part Argand Plot

99 99 Example: K-Matrix Parametrizations Au, Morgan and Pennington (1987) Amsler et al. (1995) Anisovich and Sarantsev (2003)

100 100 P-Vector Definition But in many reactions there is no scattering process but a production process, a resonance is produced with a certain strength and then decays Aitchison (1972) with

101 101 P-Vector Poles The resonance poles are constructed as in the K-Matrix and one may add a polynomial d i again For a single channel and a single pole If the K-Matrix contains fake poles... for non s-channel processes modeled in an s-channel model...the corresponding poles in P are different

102 102 Q-Vector A different Ansatz with a different picture: channel n is produced and undergoes final state interaction For channel 1 in 2 channels

103 103 Complex Analysis Revisited The Breit-Wigner example shows, that Γ(m) implies ρ(m) but below threshold ρ(m) gets complex because q (breakup-momentum) gets complex, since m 1 +m 2 >m therefore the real part of the denominator (mass term) changes and imaginary part (width term) vanishes completely

104 104 Complex Analysis Revisited (contd) But furthermore for each ρ(m) which is a squareroot, one has two solutions for p>0 or p<0 resp. But the two values (w=2q/m) have some phase in between and are not identical So you define a new complex plane for each solution, which are 2 n complex planes, called Riemann sheets they are continuously connected. The borderlines are called CUTS.

105 105 Riemann Sheets in a 2 Channel Problem Usual definition sheetsgn(q 1 )sgn(q 2 ) I + + II - + III - - IV + + This implies for the T-Matrix Complex Energy Plane Complex Momentum Plane

106 106 States on Energy Sheets Singularities appear naturally where Singularities might be 1 – bound states 2 – anti-bound states 3 – resonances or artifacts due to wrong treatment of the model

107 107 States on Momentum Sheets Or in the complex momentum plane Singularities might be 1 – bound states 2 – anti-bound states 3 – resonances

108 108 Left-hand and Right-hand Cuts The right hand CUTS (RHC) come from the open channels in an n channel problem But also exchange processes and other effects introduce CUTS on the left-hand side (LHC)

109 109 N/D Method To get the proper behavior for the left-hand cuts Use N l (s) and D l (s) which are correlated by dispersion relations An example for this is the work of Bugg and Zhou (1993)

110 110 Nearest Pole Determines Real Axis The pole nearest to the real axis or more clearly to a point with mass m on the real axis determines your physics results Far away from thresholds this works nicely At thresholds, the world is more complicated While ρ(770) in between two thresholds has a beautiful shape the f 0 (980) or a 0 (980) have not

111 111 Pole and Shadows near Threshold (2 Channel) For a real resonance one always obtains poles on sheet II and III due to symmetries in T l Usually To make sure that pole an shadow match and form an s-channel resonance, it is mandatory to check if the pole on sheets II and III match This is done by artificially changing ρ 2 smoothly from q 2 to –q 2
