  • As a first application of our fusion model, the dynamical fragmentation process of fusion and subsequent fission is analyzed in the reactions of 4.8--8 MeV/nucleon /sup 208/Pb on /sup 50/Ti, /sup 52/Cr, /sup 58/Fe, and /sup 64/Ni. In this two step model, the colliding nuclei are first shown to be captured in the pockets behind the adiabatic interaction barriers and then the composite systems so formed, being strongly excited, fission adiabatically. The calculated capture cross sections agree reasonably well with the experiments and the mass distributions are systematically symmetric, independent of the choice of relative separation distance R and themore » large structure in the cranking masses. The symmetric mass fragmentation is a (dynamical) liquid drop effect and the peaks or other detailed structure in mass distributions depend on how the temperature would modify the masses and also on the dynamical coupling of mass asymmetry with the relative motion. This demands refined measurements of the fission data for larger mass asymmetry. The calculated critical angular momentum, which refers to the vanishing of the interaction barrier, in these reactions occurs at the incident energy greater than 8 MeV/nucleon. This suggests a possible importance of extending these experiments beyond their present energy limits.« less
  • The perturbative QCD fragmentation functions for a heavy quark to fragment into heavy-light mesons are studied in the heavy-quark limit. The fragmentation functions for {ital S}-wave pseudoscalar and vector mesons are calculated to next-to-leading order in the heavy-quark mass expansion using the methods of heavy-quark effective theory. The results agree with the {ital m}{sub {ital b}}{r_arrow}{infinity} limit of the perturbative QCD fragmentation functions for {ital {bar b}} into {ital B}{sub {ital c}} and {ital B}{sub {ital c}}{sup *}. We discuss the application of the perturbative QCD fragmentation functions as a model for the fragmentation of heavy quarks into heavy-light mesons.more » Using this model we predict the fraction {ital P}{sub {ital V}} of heavy-light mesons that are produced in the vector meson state as functions of the longitudinal momentum fraction {ital z} and the transverse momentum relative to the jet axis. The fraction {ital P}{sub {ital V}} is predicted to vary from about 1/2 at small {ital z} to almost 3/4 near {ital z}=1.« less
  • The fragmentation problem becomes tractable in part by studying the structure and stability of axisymmetric equilibrium states toward which pressure-supported collapsing gas clouds evolve. A pair of criteria that must be simultaneously satisfied if the final collapsed object is to be unstable toward fragmentation are presently formulated for rotating gas clouds. The first criterion proceeds from knowledge of the point at which an incompressible gas cloud in axisymmetric equilibium experiences the first dynamical, gravitational instability to a nonaxisymmetric mode. The second criterion depends on the strength of the Coriolis force working as a restoring force, which depends on the epicyclicmore » frequency of the gas. 41 references.« less
  • Fragment ions from C{sub 60} induced by 2 MeV (v=1.7 a.u.) Si{sup 2+} impacts are measured in coincidence with the number distributions of secondary electrons under conditions of single-electron loss and single-electron capture collisions. Multifragmentation, leading to disintegration of cage structure, is found to occur at surprisingly low charge states of r{approx_equal}3. Also, we find that mass distributions of fragment ions are nearly the same for loss and capture collisions provided that the number of electrons ejected, due to electronic energy deposition from an incident ion, are the same. Present results indicate evidently that the internal excitation, rather than themore » charge state r of transiently formed prefragmented parent ions C{sub 60}{sup r+}**, plays the essential role in C{sub 60} fragmentation in fast heavy ion collisions.« less
  • The fragmentation of a charm quark to charmed hadrons in deep-inelastic scattering has been studied using the H1 detector at HERA.The visible cross sections for inclusive D+, D0, D{sub s}{sup +} and D*+ meson production were determined making use of the secondary vertex displacement measured by the central silicon detector of H1 and fragmentation fractions and fragmentation ratios were extracted.To investigate the fraction of the charm quark's momentum transferred to a charmed hadron, the differential cross section of D*-meson has been measured as a function of two scaling observables.The parameters of the Peterson and Kartvelishvili fragmentation functions, as implemented inmore » a model with leading-order matrix elements, parton showers, string fragmentation and particle decays, were extracted from a fit to the measured distributions. The fits, using both observables, lead to the following ranges for the fragmentation parameters: 0.014 < {epsilon} < 0.036 (Peterson) and 4 < {alpha} < 6.8 (Kartvelishvili)« less
