6 Stato dell’analisi e prospettive Nel periodo Giugno 2002-Giugno 2003 sono stati pubblicati 20 articoli su riviste internazionali (di cui 13 su Physics Letters B) Entro la fine del 2004 sono previste altre 20 pubblicazioni Fondamentale contributo alla fisica del charm Lifetimes Semileptonic decays Hadronic decays Rare decays
7 An important lesson from for the B physics and CP studies “The advantages of high-statistics for the interpretation of Heavy-Flavour hadronic-decay dynamics will vanish without a strategy for controlling strong effects among particles involved in weak-decay processes ”
8 Complication for Dalitz plot analysis had to face the problem of dealing with light scalar particles populating charm meson hadronic decays, such as D , D Require understanding of light-quark hadronic physics including the riddle of and (i.e, and states produced close to threshold), whose existence and nature is still controversial
9 A bridge of language, knowledge and measurements between the two worlds of Light Mesons and Heavy Flavours is necessary S-matrix and its representations Two-body unitarity Analyticity Limits of the Breit-Wigner approximation etc..
10 Analysis techniques CAN and MUST be improved now in view of extensive application in high-statistics experiments (Cleo-c, Babar, Belle, BTeV, LHC-b etc...) for precision studies of CP and reliable New Physics measurements Pioneering work performed by
11 An instructive example from FOCUS Milano group analogy with operatively : complete Dalitz plot analysis (time-dependent) to deal with all interference with other ( ) intermediate channels crucial for determination of the angle of the SM unitarity triangle
12 For a well-defined wave with specific isospin and spin (IJ) characterized by narrow and well-isolated resonances, we know how. the propagator is of the simple Breit-Wigner type and the amplitude is How can we formulate the problem? | 1 2 3 The problem is to write the propagator for the resonance r r r 3 1 2 traditional isobar model
13 when the specific IJ–wave is characterized by broad and heavily overlapping resonances (just like scalars!), the problem is not so simple. where K is the matrix for the scattering of particles 1 and 2. In this case it can be demonstrated on very general grounds that, in the context of the K-matrix approach, the propagator may be written as Indeed, it is very easy to realize that propagation is no longer dominated by a single resonance, but is the result of complicated interplay among resonances. i.e., to write down the propagator we need the scattering matrix In contrast
14 Based on “first principles” of S-matrix scattering theory The K-matrix formalism E.P.Wigner, Phys. Rev. 70 (1946) 15 S.U. Chung et al. Ann. Physik 4 (1995) 404 S scattering matrix = phase space
15 From T to F From scattering to production: the P-vector approach I.J.R. Aitchison Nucl. Phys. A189 (1972) 514 known from scattering data describes coupling of resonances to D
16 K-matrix advantages An elegant and direct way of incorporating the two-body unitarity constraint Proper handling of overlapping and wide resonances Straightforward inclusion of already known physics and disadvantages requires translation into T-matrix to get the “physics”

25 Conclusions The K-matrix approach has been applied to charm decays for the first time Such a result was not at all obvious! Full application to forthcoming high-statistics charm and beauty experiments for precision studies and search of New Physics !
