Title: Measurement of initial-state–final-state radiation interference in the processes e + e μ + μ γ and e + e π + π γ [Measurement of ISR-FSR interference in the processes e + e μ + μ γ and e + e π + π γ ]

Charge asymmetry in the processes e +e → μ +μ γ and e +e → π +π γ is measured using 232 fb –1 of data collected with the BABAR detector at e +e center-of-mass energies near 10.58 GeV. An observable is introduced and shown to be very robust against detector asymmetries while keeping a large sensitivity to the physical charge asymmetry that results from the interference between initial- and final-state radiation (FSR). The asymmetry is determined as a function of the invariant mass of the final-state tracks from production threshold to a few GeV/c 2. It is compared to the expectation from QED for e +e → μ +μ γ, and from theoretical models for e +e → π +π γ. A clear interference pattern is observed in e +e → π +π γ, particularly in the vicinity of the f 2(1270) resonance. As a result, the inferred rate of lowest-order FSR production is consistent with the QED expectation for e +e → μ +μ γ, and is negligibly small for e +e → π +π γ.

abstractNote = {Charge asymmetry in the processes e+e– → μ+μ–γ and e+e– → π+π–γ is measured using 232 fb–1 of data collected with the BABAR detector at e+e– center-of-mass energies near 10.58 GeV. An observable is introduced and shown to be very robust against detector asymmetries while keeping a large sensitivity to the physical charge asymmetry that results from the interference between initial- and final-state radiation (FSR). The asymmetry is determined as a function of the invariant mass of the final-state tracks from production threshold to a few GeV/c2. It is compared to the expectation from QED for e+e– → μ+μ–γ, and from theoretical models for e+e– → π+π–γ. A clear interference pattern is observed in e+e– → π+π–γ, particularly in the vicinity of the f2(1270) resonance. As a result, the inferred rate of lowest-order FSR production is consistent with the QED expectation for e+e– → μ+μ–γ, and is negligibly small for e+e– → π+π–γ.},
