Initial State Radiation Physics at the B Factories

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A mini-review of the recent BaBar and Belle results on the process e{sup +}e{sup -} {yields} hadrons using the initial state radiation (ISR) technique, is presented. ISR studies at the {Upsilon}(4s) resonance (B-Factories) can yield to the same observables as the low energy e{sup +}e{sup -} experiments: Precise cross-section measurements, the R ratio (ratio of cross-sections of hadron production to di-muon production) measurement, form factors measurements (from hadron pair production such as e{sup +}e{sup -} {yields} p{bar p}, {Lambda}{bar {Lambda}}, {Lambda}{bar {Sigma}}, {Sigma}{bar {Sigma}}), as well as J{sup PC} = 1{sup --} hadron spectroscopy that can lead to the discovery ... continued below
