7 Rutherford Scattering (4) Density of statesCross section and transition rates: T=s F and flux F=v.Ignore nuclear recoil:Gives Rutherford scattering cross section777777
8 Form Factor (1)Rutherford scattering cross section doesn’t depend on any fixed scale in problem.We had assumed point like nucleus.What happens for finite sized nuclei?Coulomb potential modified:Matrix element modified888888
9 Form Factor (2)Matrix element modified compared to pure Coulomb by form factorForm factor is Fourier transform of charge distribution in 3D space to momentum space.In principle: measure deviations from pure Coulomb potential F(q2) inverse FT gives ρ(r).Why doesn’t this work in practice?999999
10 Form Factor (3)Requires probe with λ<<R ie qR>>1 (high energy!).Assume toy model for charge distribution ieGives form factor (work it out yourself!)q << m F(q2) ~ constant because resolution too poor.q >> m F(q2) ~ 1/q4 and σ suppressed by 1/q8101010101010

50 ScalingMost critcial prediction of QPM is scaling SF depend on x but not Q2 at high Q2 and n.Data show approximate scaling.If quarks had finite size very large form factor suppression.Slow (log) variations with Q2 can be explained by QCD.Quarks are point like within resolution of current experiments5050

60 Gluon Spin Measure angle of 3rd jet sensitive to gluon spin Boost 2 lowest pt jets to CMS and plot angle jets make with thrust axis Consistent with 1.2132q13
61 QCD We start from experiment with: Spin 1 gluonsNumber of quark colours = 3.Assume theory is given by SU(3) colour.The group theory for SU(3) colour identical to SU(3) flavour but colour is conserved exactly (cf electric charge) but SU(3) flavour is approximate.Quarks come in 3 colours, red, blue, green (nothing to do with colour of light! Just convenient labels).
62 SU(3) Unitary matrices U†U=UU†=I. Diagonal terms must be real 3 constraints.6 off-diagonal terms but if U†ij =0 U†ji=0.Leaves 3 complex elements 3*2=6 constraints.Det(U†U)=Det((UT)*) Det(U)=1Det(U)* Det(U)=1 Det(U)= ±1
63 SU(3) – continued SU(3): select Det(U)=+1. 3*3 complex matrix: Quarks: Start with 2*9=18 numbersConstraints 3(diagonal) + 6 (off-diagonal) + 1 (det U=+1)SU(3) Needs 8 parameters 8 generators for SU(3) 8 gluons.Quarks:fundamental representation of SU(3), triplet of states labeled |r>, |b>, |g>
64 SU(3) OctetGluon wave functions (same maths as for SU(3) flavour)
65 Consequences of SU(3)8 gluon states (transform into each other under SU(3) rotations).Mathematically we could have a colour singlet gluonHow do we know that such a gluon state doesn’t exist?Why is it ok to have colour singlet states for mesons?How do we know that this choice is correct?
66 Colour Factors (1)We can use gluon wave functions to calculate relative amplitudes from different qq scattering processes (colour factors).qq qq: same colour, chose r (b or g would give same answer): rrrrqqg vertex requires term g3 and g8Amplitudes from gluon wave functions (previous page):
67 Colour Factors (2)Next consider two different colours, arbitrary choice, take rbAdd amplitudes for (1) rbrb and (2) rbbr(1) needs and terms g3 and g8(2) needs and terms g1 and g2
68 Colour Factors (3)Antiquarks -ive sign at vertex (cf –ive electric charge in QED).Compare withSame gluons exchanged, flip signCompare with
69 Colour Factors Summary Now we’ve done the maths we can do some physics …Learn something about quark binding in hadronsCalculate scattering amplitudes
70 Quark Binding in Mesons (1) Now consider colour singlet state ofCalculate colour factor for single gluon exchange for singlet using our previous results3 terms (colours) likeGives total = -3*2/9 = -2/3Same term forMultiply *3 for 3 colours = 3*(-2/3)=-2Final result for colour singlet a=-2/3-2 =-8/3
71 Quark Binding in Mesons (2) Amplitude also containscoupling “constant” from each vertexPropagator gives 1/q2 (4-momentum transfer)In non-relativistic (NR) limit Fourier Transform of potential scattering amplitude.Inverse FT (amplitude) potential V(r) ~ 1/rColour factor =-8/3 negative suggests that colour singlet should be bound state.Similar calculation for colour octet gives +ive colour factor.Suggestive of confinement for colour singlets but beware this is NR limit in which coupling constant large so can’t use perturbation theory.
72 Quark scatteringDon’t have free quarks so can’t measure the qq scattering cross sections directly but …We can do hadron-hadron (mainly pp or pp) scattering and if we know quark PDFs we can combine this with these scattering amplitudes to calculate measurable cross sections (see later).
73 QCD Assume SU(3) colour gauge symmetry. Consider transformation: g s coupling constant and Ta are the generators of SU(3)Infinitesimal transformationAdd 8 gluon fields to keep gauge invariance fabc are structure constants of SU(3).
74 QCD (2) Replace derivative with covariant derivative (cf QED) KE term for gluon fieldsThis givesKE for gluons and qqg vertices (cf QED) and3g and 4g vertices (unlike QED).
75 Running Coupling Constant - QED QED: example of running coupling constantShielding by virtual e+e- pairs a increases at shorter distance, higher Q2.Bare charge & renormalised chargeThis term depends on number of “active” flavours m<Q)Burcham & Jobes p
76 Running Coupling Constant - QCD Similar shielding from gq qbarAnti-shielding from gggNet result:as(Q2) decreases as Q2 increases asymptotic freedom.Explains why naïve QPM works at large Q2: as(Q2) small so lowest order calculation gives good approximation.Infrared slavery quark confinement.
77 Running Coupling Constant – QCD (2) Experiments measure as(Q) at different values of Q2.tau decay BR: how?Quarkonia: how?e+e-3 jets: how?Good fit to QCD prediction withas (MZ)= ±10100Q (GeV)
78 Experimental Tests SU(3) Running of as with Q2 is implicit test of SU(3)Can we do explicit test of SU(3)?SU(3) predicts colour factors for qqg and ggg vertices: CF=4/3 and CA=3.Several variables sensitive to this in e+e- hadrons. Some examples:Charged particle multiplicity in q and g jetsAngular distributions in 4 jet eventsEvent shapes, e.g. Thrust
79 Experimental FitFit for CF and CA consistent with SU(3) and inconsistent with other choices for the symmetry.CA = 2.89 ± 0.21CF = 1.30 ± 0.09S. Kluth, Tests of QCD at e+e- collidersdoi: / /69/6/R04
80 Scaling Violations Expect log scaling violations in QCD qq ggq qbargg gAs Q2 increases, resolve more splitting.Valence q decreasesSea q and gluons increase at low x
81 Scaling Violations Need to look over large range of x and Q2. HERA data gives good coverage (high energy!)At low x, F2 increases as Q2 increasesAt high x, F2 decreases as Q2 increasesUse these scaling violations to fit the gluon distribution figures
93 Dijet Angular Distributions Dijet LHC: mainly gg gg.Angular distribution dominated by g exchange (cf Rutherford scattering) propagator 1/Q4Gives angular distribution ~ 1/sin4(q/2)Change variables to get flatter distribution:

98 Crossing Symmetry From the solutions to the Dirac equation we formally represent the states which apparently have negativeenergy as positive energy states travelling backwards in time.crossing symmetry relates the amplitudes of reactionsparticle anti-particle.Fortwo crossed diagrams structure of the matrix elementsare the same replace the momentum of theincoming (outgoing) particles minus that of the outgoing(incoming) anti-particles.
