INTRODUCTION Charmonium System
Exclusive quarkonium decays contribute an important laboratory for investigating QCD. Compared to J/ decays, relatively little is known concerning PC = ++ cJ decays. Color octet mechanism (COM) important for P-wave quarkonium decays. A consistent set of theoretical predictions for the branching fractions, as well as more precise experimental measurements will lead to a better understanding of the COM and the nature of cJ states. Furthermore, the decays of cJ, in particular c0 and c2, provide a direct window on glueball dynamics in the 0 ++ and 2 ++ channels. C. Amsler and F. Close, PRD53 (1996) 295

In general, it is believed that (2S) cJ is dominated by the E1 transition, but with some M2 (for c1 and c2 ) and E3 contributions (for c2 ). The calculated pure E1 transition rates and the experimental results are quite different. Determine the contributions of the higher multipoles S- and D-wave mixing of (2S) and (3770) may be the key to solve the long-standing puzzle and to explain (3770) non-DD decays. Crystal Ball studied the decay angular distributions in (2S) c2 using (2S) J/ first; no significant higher multipoles found (with limited statistics). c2 polarization in (2S) c2, c2 + -, K + K -
No background from c1 since the c1 + -, K + K - processes are forbidden by parity conservation.
The helicity amplitudes are determined by a maximum likelihood fit to the angular distribution, where x=A 1 /A 0, y=A 2 /A 0, A 0,1,2 are the c2 helicity amplitudes.

c decays to pp, , h + h - KsKs, K *0 K *0 and f 0 (980)f 0 (980) are measured for the first time or with higher sensitivity using BESII’s 14 million (2S) data sample. helpful to better understand the nature of c states and test the new QCD approach. The helicity amplitudes of (2S) c2 are measured for c2 + - and K + K -, and x = 2.08 0.44, y = 3.03 0.66 with correlation = 0.92 are obtained. in good agreement with a pure E1 transition More experimental facts are desired Theoretical predictions… SUMMARY
