Title: Rosenbluth Separation of the π 0 Electroproduction Cross Section Off the Neutron

Abstract

Here, we report the first longitudinal/transverse separation of the deeply virtual exclusive $$\pi^0$$ electroproduction cross section off the neutron and coherent deuteron. Furthemore, the corresponding four structure functions $$d\sigma_L/dt$$, $$d\sigma_T/dt$$, $$d\sigma_{LT}/dt$$ and $$d\sigma_{TT}/dt$$ are extracted as a function of the momentum transfer to the recoil system at $Q^2$=1.75 GeV$^2$ and $$x_B$$=0.36. The $$ed \to ed\pi^0$$ cross sections are found compatible with the small values expected from theoretical models. The $$en \to en\pi^0$$ cross sections show a dominance from the response to transversely polarized photons, and are in good agreement with calculations based on the transversity GPDs of the nucleon. By combining our results with previous measurements of $$\pi^0$$ electroproduction off the proton, we present a flavor decomposition of the $u$ and $d$ quark contributions to the cross section.

  • We report the first longitudinal-transverse separation of the deeply virtual exclusive π0 electroproduction cross section off the neutron and coherent deuteron. The corresponding four structure functions dσL/dt, dσT/dt, dσLT/dt, and dσTT/dt are extracted as a function of the momentum transfer to the recoil system at Q2=1.75 GeV2 and xB=0.36. The ed→edπ0 cross sections are found compatible with the small values expected from theoretical models. The en→enπ0 cross sections show a dominance from the response to transversely polarized photons, and are in good agreement with calculations based on the transversity generalized parton distributions of the nucleon. By combining these results withmore » previous measurements of π0 electroproduction off the proton, we present a flavor decomposition of the u and d quark contributions to the cross section« less
  • This paper presents a full simulation study of the measurement of the production cross section(ZH) of the Higgsstrahlung process e+e- ZH and the Higgs boson mass (MH) at the International Linear Collider (ILC), using events in which a Higgs boson recoils against a Z boson decaying into a pair of muons or electrons. The analysis is carried out for three center-of-mass energiesps =250, 350, and 500 GeV, and two beam polarizations e L e+ R and e Re+L , for which the polarizationsof e and e+ are Pe-; Pe+ =(-80%, +30%) and (+80%, -30%), respectively. Assuming an integrated luminosity ofmore » 250 fb1 for each beam polarization at ps = 250 GeV, where the best lepton momentum resolution is obtainable, ZH and MH can be determined with a precision of 2.5%and 37 MeV for e L e+R and 2.9% and 41 MeV for e-Re+L , respectively. Regarding a 20 year ILC physics program, the expected precisions for the HZZ coupling and MH are estimated to be 0.4% and 14MeV, respectively. The event selection is designed to optimize the precisions of ZH and MH while minimizing the bias on the measured ZH due to discrepancy in signal efficiencies among Higgs decay modes. For the first time, model independence has been demonstrated to a sub-percent level for the ZH measurement at each of the three center-of-mass energies. The results presented show the impact of center-of-mass energy and beam polarization on the evaluated precisons and serve as« less
  • Here, we study the processes e + e - → Kmore » $$0\atop{S}$$ K$$0\atop{L}$$ π 0 γ , K $$0\atop{S}$$ K$$0\atop{L}$$ η γ , and K$$0\atop{S}$$ K$$0\atop{L}$$ π 0 π 0 γ , where the photon is radiated from the initial state, providing cross section measurements for the hadronic final states over a continuum of center-of-mass energies. The results are based on 469 fb -1 of data collected at or near the Υ ( 4 S ) resonance with the BABAR detector at SLAC. We present the first measurements of the e + e - → K$$0\atop{S}$$ K$$0\atop{L}$$ π 0 , K$$0\atop{S}$$ K$$0\atop{L}$$ η , and K$$0\atop{S}$$ K$$0\atop{L}$$ π 0π 0 cross sections up to a center-of-mass energy of 4 GeV and study their intermediate resonance structures. We observe J / ψ decays to all of these final states for the first time, present measurements of their J / ψ branching fractions, and search for ψ (2S) decays.« less
