Reggeplusresonance treatment of the p({gamma},K{sup +}){sigma}{sup 0} and p({gamma},K{sup 0}){sigma}{sup +} reactions at forward kaon angles
Abstract
An effectiveLagrangian framework for K{sigma} photoproduction from the proton is presented. The proposed model is applicable at forward kaon angles and photon lab energies from threshold up to 16 GeV. The highenergy part of the p({gamma},K{sup +}){sigma}{sup 0} and p({gamma},K{sup 0}){sigma}{sup +} amplitudes is expressed in terms of Reggetrajectory exchange in the t channel. By supplementing this Regge background with a number of schannel resonances, the model is extended toward the resonance region. The resulting ''Reggeplusresonance'' (RPR) approach has the advantage that the background contributions involve only a few parameters, which can be largely constrained by the highenergy data. This work compares various implementations of the RPR model, and explores which resonance contributions are required to fit the data presently at hand. It is demonstrated that, through the inclusion of one K and two K* trajectories, the RPR framework provides an efficient and unified description of the K{sup +}{sigma}{sup 0} and K{sup 0}{sigma}{sup +} photoproduction channels over an extensive energy range.

Differential cross sections and photonbeam asymmetries for the {gamma}vectorp{yields}K{sup +}{lambda} and {gamma}vectorp{yields}K{sup +}{sigma}{sup 0} reactions have been measured in the photon energy range from 1.5 to 2.4 GeV and in the angular range from {theta}{sub c.m.}=0 deg. to 60 deg. of the K{sup +} scattering angle in the centerofmass system at the SPring8/LEPS facility. The photonbeam asymmetries for both the reactions have been found to be positive and to increase with the photon energy. The measured differential cross sections agree with the data measured by the CLAS Collaboration at cos{theta}{sub c.m.}<0.9 within the experimental uncertainties, but the discrepancy with themore »

Chiral dynamics in the {gamma}p{yields}{pi}{sup 0}{eta}p and {gamma}p{yields}{pi}{sup 0}K{sup 0}{sigma}{sup +} reactions
Using a chiral unitary approach for mesonbaryon scattering in the strangeness zero sector, where the N{sup *}(1535)S{sub 11} resonance is dynamically generated, we study the reactions {gamma}p{yields}{pi}{sup 0}{eta}p and {gamma}p{yields}{pi}{sup 0}K{sup 0}{sigma}{sup +} at photon energies at which the final states are produced close to threshold. Among several reaction mechanisms, we find the most important is the excitation of the {delta}{sup *}(1700)D{sub 33} state, which subsequently decays into a pseudoscalar meson and a baryon belonging to the {delta}(1232)P{sub 33} decuplet. Hence, the reaction provides useful information with which to test current theories of the dynamical generation of the lowlying 3/2{supmore » 
Radiative kaon decays [ital K][sup [plus minus]][r arrow][pi][sup [plus minus]][pi][sup 0][gamma] and direct [ital CP] violation
It is stressed that a measurement of the electric dipole amplitude for direct photon emission in [ital K][sup [plus minus]][r arrow][pi][sup [plus minus]][pi][sup 0][gamma] decays through its interference with inner bremsstrahlung is important for differentiating among various models. The effects of amplitude [ital CP] violation in the radiative decays of the charged kaon are analyzed in the standard model in conjunction with the large[ital N][sub [ital c]] approach. We point out that gluon and electromagnetic penguin contributions to the [ital CP]violating asymmetry between the Dalitz plots of [ital K][sup [plus minus]][r arrow][pi][sup [plus minus]][pi][sup 0][gamma] are of equal weight.
