Title: First study of ηc(1S), η(1760) and X(1835) production via η'π⁺π⁻ final states in two-photon collisions

The invariant mass spectrum of the η'π⁺π⁻ final state produced in two-photon collisions is obtained using a 673 fb⁻¹ data sample collected in the vicinity of the Υ(4S) resonance with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e⁺e⁻ collider. We observe a clear signal of the ηc(1S) and measure its mass and width to be M(ηc(1S))=(2982.7±1.8(stat)±2.2(syst)±0.3(model)) MeV/c² and Γ(ηc(1S))=(37.8+5.8–5.3(stat)±2.8(syst)±1.4(model)) MeV/c². The third error is an uncertainty due to possible interference between the ηc(1S) and a nonresonant component. We also report the first evidence for η(1760) decay toη'π⁺π⁻; we find two solutions for its parameters, depending on the inclusion or not of the X(1835), whose existence is of marginal significance in our data. From a fit to the mass spectrum using coherent X(1835) and η(1760) resonant amplitudes, we set a 90% confidence level upper limit on the product ΓγγB(η'π⁺π⁻) for the X(1835).
