Title: Angular decay coefficients of J/ψ mesons at forward rapidity from p+p collisions at √s = 510 GeV

In this paper, we report the first measurement of the full angular distribution for inclusive J/ψ → μ +μ - decays in p+p collisions at √s = 510 GeV. The measurements are made for J/ψ transverse momentum 2 < p T < 10 GeV/c and rapidity 1.2 < y < 2.2 in the Helicity, Collins-Soper, and Gottfried-Jackson reference frames. In all frames the polar coefficient λ θ is strongly negative at low p T and becomes close to zero at high p T, while the azimuthal coefficient λ Φ is close to zero at low p T, and becomes slightly negative at higher p T. The frame-independent coefficient λ ~ is strongly negative at all p T in all frames. Finally, the data are compared to the theoretical predictions provided by nonrelativistic quantum chromodynamics models.
