Title: Magnetic moments of heavy baryons in the relativistic three-quark model

Abstract

The magnetic moments of ground state single, double and triple heavy baryons containing charm or bottom quarks are calculated in a relativistic three-quark model, which, in the heavy-quark limit, is consistent with heavy-quark effective theory and heavy hadron chiral perturbation theory. The internal quark structure of baryons is modeled by baryonic three-quark currents with a spin-flavor structure patterned according to standard covariant baryonic wave functions and currents used in QCD sum rule calculations.

  • We study the semileptonic decays of double-heavy baryons using a manifestly Lorentz covariant constituent three-quark model. We present complete results on transition form factors between double-heavy baryons for finite values of the heavy quark/baryon masses and in the heavy quark symmetry limit, which is valid at and close to zero recoil. Decay rates are calculated and compared to each other in the full theory, keeping masses finite, and also in the heavy quark limit.
  • We study flavor-conserving radiative decays of double-heavy baryons using a manifestly Lorentz covariant constituent three-quark model. Decay rates are calculated and compared to each other in the full theory, keeping masses finite, and also in the heavy quark limit. We discuss in some detail hyperfine mixing effects.
  • The leptonic decays of the baryon octet are investigated in the framework of a nonlocal quark model. A baryon-quark strong-interaction Lagrangian invariant under SU(3) x SU/sup c/(3) x U(1) is constructed. The weak interaction is introduced as a pure current x current V--A interaction without admixture of D-coupling. All the parameters determining the quark field have been determined from analysis of decays of mesons. The widths of the leptonic decays of the baryons are considered, the renormalization, due to the strong interaction, of the axial coupling constant is calculated, the intensities of the contributions of F- and D-coupling to themore » matrix elements of the leptonic decays are calculated, and the magnitudes of the anomalous magnetic moments and ''weak magnetism'' of the baryons are determined. The effective constant of the perturbation-theory expansion turns out to be less than unity. The results are in good agreement with experiment.« less
  • We make nonrelativistic as well as relativistic estimations of the magnetic moments and charge radii of decuplet baryons in a field-theoretic quark model, where translationally invariant decuplet baryon states are described by constituent quark field operators and harmonic oscillator wave functions. The relativistic estimations of the magnetic moments made are, however, {ital O}({vert_bar}{ital {rvec p}}{vert_bar}/{ital m}) corrections over the nonrelativistic contribution where the higher order corrections for the ground states treated here, being small, are neglected. The constituent quark field operators here with a particular ansatz satisfy the equal time algebra and are also Lorentz boosted in a definite mannermore » to describe the baryons in motion. The estimations for the magnetic moments and their ratios, with a single harmonic oscillator radius parameter for the octet as well as decuplet baryons, show a reasonable agreement with the most recent experimental measurements for {Delta}{sup ++} and {Omega}{sup {minus}}, which have constrained different models of hadrons to explain both. We feel that the final results in this regard, expected in the near future in succeeding experiments, can further constrain different theoretical models. However, because of the lack of experimental data, the estimated charge radii in the present model stand as model predictions which may be verified in future experiments.« less
