Motivations Charmonium decays as a probe for non-perturbative QCD mechanisms Several exisiting puzzles in low-lying vector charmonium decays
(3770) non-D D decay “ puzzle” in J/ , VP decay M1 transition problem in J/ , c, ( c ) Isospin-violating decay of J/ 0, and h c 0 … … Conjecture: These puzzles could be related to non- pQCD mechanisms in charmonium decays due to intermediate D meson loops. Several well-known puzzles in charmonium decays

Nevertheless, such effects behave differently in the kinematics below or above the threshold.
(3770) non-D D decay -- Evidence for intermediate D meson contributions to charmonium decays
Short-range pQCD transition; Color-octet contributions are included; 2S-1D state mixings are small; NLO correction is the same order of magnitude as LO. Results do not favor both CLEO and BES pQCD calculation: BR(non-D D) < 5% Q: How about the long-range non-pQCD mechanisms?
Recognition of possible long-range transition mechanisms pQCD (non-relativistic QCD): If the heavy c c are good constituent degrees of freedom, c and c annihilate at the origin of the (c c) wavefunction. Thus, pQCD should be dominant. If pQCD is dominant in (3770) light hadrons via 3g exchange, the OZI rule will be respected. (3770) non-D D decay will be suppressed. Non-pQCD: Are the constituent c c good degrees of freedom for (3770) light hadrons? Or is pQCD dominant at all? If not, how the OZI rule is violated? Could the OZI-rule violation led to sizeable (3770) non-D D decay? How to quantify it?
Recognition of long-range transition mechanisms in spectrum studies See talk by E. Swanson at Charmed Exotics, Bad Honnef, Germany and T. Barnes and E. Swanson, PRC77, 055206 (2008) Li, Meng and Chao, PRD80, 014012(2009) Hadronic loop contributions as unquenched effects in charmonium spectrum

Transition amplitude can thus be decomposed as: The V VP transition has only one single coupling of anti-symmetric tensor form Short-range pQCD amp. Long-range non- pQCD amp.
Effective Lagrangians for meson couplings Coupling constants:
i) Determine long-range parameter in (3770) J/ . (3770) J/ The cut-off energy for the divergent meson loop integral can be determined by data, and then extended to other processes. Soft production - mixing is considered a form factor is needed to kill the loop integral divergence

Remarks The t-channel transition is much more important than the s channel. The s-channel can be compared with Rosner’s (2S)- (1D) mixing. The only sizeable s channel is in (3770) J/ . It adds to the t-channel amplitude constructive. In contrast, the isospin- violating (3770) J/ 0 experiences a destructive interference between the s and t channel. There exists a strong correlation between the SOZI parameter g S and phase angle . It is essential to have precise measurement of all the VP channels, i.e. , K* K+c.c. etc.
In most cases, the estimate of loop contributions will suffer from cut-off uncertainties. Thus, one should look for systematic constraints on the model uncertainties in all relevant processes. … More evidences are needed …
Coherent study of the (3686) VP is needed. In particular, It is important to investigate the meson loop effects in the problems of e.g. “ puzzle”, J/ and (3686) radiative decay. [see e.g. Zhao, Li and Chang, PLB645, 173(2007); Li, Zhao, and Chang, JPG (2008); Zhao, Li and Chang, arXiv:0812.4092[hep-ph], and work in progress] The relevant isospin-violating channels as a correlation with the OZI-rule violation (OZI-rule evading) process, e.g. J/ 0.

The property of antisymmetric VVP coupling suggests that one can investigate the origin of the “ puzzle” between the strong and EM transitions. The EM transition can be investigated by vector meson dominance (VMD) model. The strong transition amplitude contributes to both isospin-conserved and isospin-violated transitions.

V. Isospin-violated channel We determine the cut-off energy in the form factor by fitting the experimental branching ratios for the isospin-violating J/ and decays. By taking the branching ratio fractions, it shows that the 12% rule is approximately satisfied. parameter is determined by assuming the dominance of EM transition in isospin-violated channels. It should be refitted when strong isospin violation is included. R th (%) R exp (%)

Unanswered questions i)What is the origin of the strong coupling suppression on the VP? ii)What is the role played by long-range interactions? iii)What is the correlation between the long-range interaction with the OZI- rule-evading mechanisms? Mechanisms suppressing the VP strong decays should be clarified!

Recognition of interferences Property of the anti-symmetric tensor coupling allows a parametrization: Zhao, Li, and Chang, 0812.4092[hep-ph]. In order to account for the “ puzzle”, a destructive phase between andis favored.
The intermediate meson loops will contribute to the real part of the couplings since both J/ and are below the open charm threshold. Since the has a mass which is closer to the open D D threshold, its amplitude via the D D loop will be qualitatively larger than J/ due to near-threshold effects. Similar behavior due to intermediate D D(D*) and D D*(D) loops also shows up in a coherent study of J/ and c and c. (Li & Zhao, PLB670, 55(2008)) Light intermediate meson loops are strongly suppressed due to large off-shell effects. Some features about the open charm
Summary Open D D channel effects seems to be essential for understanding some of the puzzles in the low-lying charmonium decays. (3770) non-D D decays “ puzzle” in J/ , ’ VP M1 transition problem in J/ , c, ( c ) Isospin violating decay of J/ 0 However, the quantitative calculations are sensitive to cut-off energy and exhibit model-dependent aspects. Systematic examinations of such a mechanism in different circumstances are necessary. Experimental data from BES, CLEO-c, KLOE, and B- factories will further clarify those issues.
