Associate J/{psi} + {gamma} production: A clean probe of gluon densities

Technical Report:

Abstract

We discuss the associate production of a J/{Psi} meson and a photon at panti p (or pp) and ep colliders. By requiring the J/{Psi} to decay into an e{sup +}e{sup -} or {mu}{sup +}{mu}{sup -} pair, we end up with an exceptionally clean final state. Furthermore, in leading order it can only be produced via gluon fusion. This process can therefore serve as a very clean probe of the gluon densities inside the proton as well as the photon. Numerical results are presented for the Tevatron panti p and HERA ep colliders. (orig.).
