Heavy baryons - Recent and very new results

Description: Recent results on observations, properties and decay modes of the charmed and beauty baryons will be reviewed. Candidates for several new high mass states which include a cleanly-identified daughter {Lambda}{sub c}{sup +} baryon are seen in data from the SELEX experiment at Fermilab. These states are candidates for doubly-charmed baryons: a {Xi}{sub cc}{sup ++} state and a {Xi}{sub cc}{sup +} state. These candidates are more than 5{sigma} signals in each case at masses of 3520 and 3460 MeV respectively.

First charm baryon physics from SELEX(E781)

Description: We present preliminary results on various aspects of charm baryon studies at the 1996-1997 fixed target experiment of Fermilab studying charm produced from incident {Sigma}{sup -}, proton, and {pi}{sub -} beams at 600 GeV. First results include the comparison of hadroproduction asymmetries for {Lambda}{sub c}{sup +} production from the 3 beams as well xF distributions and the first observation of the Cabbibo-suppressed decay {Xi}{sub c}{sup +} {yields} pK{sup -}{pi}{sup +}. The relative branching fraction of the Cabbibo-suppressed mode to the 3-body Cabbibo-favored modes is also presented.

Strange decays of nonstrange baryons

Description: The strong decays of excited nonstrange baryons into the final states {Lambda}K, {Sigma}K, and for the first time into {Lambda}(1405)K, {Lambda}(1520)K, {Sigma}(1385)K, {Lambda}K{sup *}, and {Sigma}K{sup *}, are examined in a relativized quark pair creation model. The wave functions and parameters of the model are fixed by previous calculations of N{pi} and N{pi}{pi}, etc., decays. The results show that it should be possible to discover several new negative parity excited baryons and confirm the discovery of several others by analyzing these final states in kaon production experiments. They also establish clear predictions for the relative strengths of certain states to decay to {Lambda}(1405)K and {Lambda}(1520)K, which can be tested to determine if a three-quark model of the {Lambda}(1405)K is valid. The authors results compare favorably with the results of partial wave analyses of the limited existing data for the {Lambda}K and {Sigma}K channels. They do not find large {Sigma}K decay amplitudes for a substantial group of predicted and weakly established negative-parity states, in contrast to the only previous work to consider decays of these states into the strange final states {Lambda}K and {Sigma}K.

Properties of Heavy B Hadrons

Description: We review recent measurements of heavy B hadron states including masses and lifetimes of the B{sub c}{sup -} meson as well as excited B states (B**, B**{sub s}). We discuss properties of the B{sub s}{sup 0} meson such as lifetime, lifetime difference {Delta}{Lambda}{sub s}/{Lambda}{sub s} and CP violation in B{sub s}{sup 0} {yields} J/{psi}{phi} decays. We also summarize new measurements of the masses and lifetimes of bottom baryons including the {Lambda}{sub b}{sup 0} baryon, the {Sigma}{sub b} baryon states as well as the {Xi}{sub b}{sup -} and {Omega}{sub b}{sup -} baryons.

SELEX: Recent Progress in the Analysis of Charm-Strange and Double-Charm Baryons

Description: SELEX (Fermilab Experiment 781) [1] employs beams of {Sigma}{sup -}, {pi}{sup -}, and protons at around 600 GeV/c to study production and decay properties of charmed baryons. It took data in the 1996/7 fixed target run and is currently analyzing those data. Here they focus on recently obtained results concerning the {Omega}{sub c}{sup 0} lifetime and the doubly-charmed baryons {Xi}{sub cc}{sup +} and {Xi}{sub cc}{sup ++}.

Photoproduction amplitudes of P(sub)11 and P(sub)33 baryon resonances in the quark model

Description: Predictions are made for the photoproduction amplitudes of low-lying N^(1/2)+ (P(sub)(11)) and delta^(3/2)+ (P(sub)(33)) resonances, using a quark model with relativistic corrections to the transition operator, and mixed nonrelativistic wavefunctions which are correctly orthogonal to the ground states.These amplitudes are also calculated using relativized model wavefunctions. The results for the Roper resonance N(1440) are in marked disagreement with the data.

Study of Lambda+(c) Cabibbo favored decays containing a Lambda baryon in the final state

Description: Using data from the FOCUS experiment (FNAL-E831), they study the decay of {Lambda}{sub c}{sup +} baryons into final states contain a {Lambda} hyperon. The branching fractions of {Lambda}{sub c}{sup +} into {Lambda}{pi}{sup +}, {Lambda}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -} and {Lambda}{bar K}{sup 0}K{sup +} relative to that into pK{sup -} {pi}{sup +} are measured to be 0.217 {+-} 0.013 {+-} 0.020, 0.508 {+-} 0.024 {+-} 0.024 and 0.142 {+-} 0.018 {+-} 0.022, respectively. New measurements are also reported. Further, an analysis of the subresonant structure for the {Lambda}{sub c}{sup +} {yields} {Lambda}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup -} decay mode is presented.

Even parity theta-pentaquark and stable strange nuclear matter

Description: The newly discovered exotic {Theta} baryon of mass 1540 MeV (and very small width) truly has a very low mass, if it is a pentaquark system of even parity. A schematic model in which the coherent interaction of u{bar s} and d{bar s} pairs leads to a very large residual (non-confining) attractive interaction is introduced. This collective vibrational model accounts for the mass and small decay width to the KN channel, but yields a significant coupling to the virtual K*N channel. The schematic model predicts an attractive {Theta}-nucleon interaction strong enough to bind a {Theta} particle to a nucleus in a state that is stable against decay via strong interactions. The discovery of {Theta}-nuclei could be a definitive proof that the {Theta} parity is even.

Naturalness of the Coleman-Glashow mass relation in the 1/N{sub c} expansion: An update

Description: A new measurement of the {Xi}{sup 0} mass verifies the accuracy of the Coleman-Glashow relation at the level predicted by the 1/N{sub c} expansion. Values for other baryon isospin mass splittings are updated, and continue to agree with the 1/N{sub c} hierarchy.

Binding energies of hypernuclei and hypernuclear interactions

Description: In part 1 the effect of nuclear core dynamics on the binding energies of {Lambda} hypernuclei is discussed in the framework of variational correlated wave functions. In particular, the authors discuss a new rearrangement energy contribution and its effect on the core polarization. In part 2 they consider the interpretation of the {Lambda} single-particle energy in terms of basic {Lambda}-nuclear interactions using a local density approximation based on a Fermi hypernetted chain calculation of the A binding to nuclear matter. To account for the data strongly repulsive 3-body {Lambda}NN forces are required. Also in this framework they discuss core polarization for medium and heavier hypernuclei.

First observation of doubly charmed baryons

Description: The SELEX experiment (E781) at Fermilab has observed two statistically compelling high mass states near 3.6 GeV/c{sup 2}, decaying to {Lambda}{sub c}{sup +} K{sup -} {pi}{sup +} and {Lambda}{sub c}{sup +} K{sup -} {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup +}. These final states are Cabibbo-allowed decay modes of doubly charmed baryons {Xi}{sub cc}{sup +} and {Xi}{sub cc}{sup ++}, respectively. The masses are in the range expected from theoretical considerations, but the spectroscopy is surprising. SELEX also has weaker preliminary evidence for a state near 3.8 GeV/c{sup 2}, a high mass state decaying to {Lambda}{sub c}{sup +} K{sup -} {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup +}, possibly an excited {Xi}{sub cc}{sup ++} (ccu*). Data are presented and discussed.

Broken SU(3) antidecuplet for {Theta}{sup +} and {Xi}{sub 3/2}

Description: If the narrow exotic baryon resonances {Theta}{sup +}(1540) and {Xi}{sub 3/2} are members of the J{sup P} = 1/2{sup +} antidecuplet with N*(1710), the octet-antidecuplet mixing is required not only by the mass spectrum but also by the decay pattern of N*(1710). This casts doubt on validity of the {Theta}{sup +} mass prediction by the chiral soliton model. While all pieces of the existing experimental information point to a small octet-decuplet mixing, the magnitude of mixing required by the mass spectrum is not consistent with the value needed to account for the hadronic decay rates. The discrepancy is not resolved even after the large experimental uncertainty is taken into consideration. We fail to find an alternative SU(3) assignment even with different spin-parity assignment. When we extend the analysis to mixing with a higher SU(3) multiplet, we find one experimentally testable scenario in the case of mixing with a 27-plet.

Description: Recent strong experimental evidence of a narrow exotic S = +1 baryon resonance, {Theta}{sup +}, suggests the existence of other exotic baryons. We discuss the prospects of confirming earlier experimental evidence of {Theta}{sup +} and the observation of additional hypothetical exotic baryons in e{sup +}e{sup -} annihilations and {gamma}{gamma} collisions at LEP and B Factories.

Baryon Triality And Neutrino Masses From An Anomalous FlavorU(1)

Description: We construct a concise U(1){sub X} Froggatt-Nielsen model in which baryon triality, a discrete gauge Z{sub 3}-symmetry, arises from U(1){sub X} breaking. The proton is thus stable, however, R-parity is violated. With the proper choice of U(1){sub X} charges we can obtain neutrino masses and mixings consistent with an explanation of the atmospheric and solar neutrino anomalies in terms of neutrino oscillations, with no right-handed neutrinos required. The only mass scale apart from M{sub grav} is m{sub soft}.

Heavy quark symmetries and the decays baryon antibaryon

Description: We enumerate the form factors necessary to describe the two-body baryonic decays of B mesons.We use the symmetries of the heavy quark effective theory to arrive at some relations among these form factors, when at least one of the daughter baryons is heavy.

Quasi two-body decays of nonstrange baryons.

Description: We examine the decays of nonstrange baryons to the final states Delta Pi, NRho, NEta, NEta', Nw, N.5 (1440)Pi, and Delta 3/2+(1600)Pi, in a relativized pair-creation (^3Po) model which has been developed in a previous study of the NPi decays of the same baryon states.As it is our goal to provide a guide for the possible discovery of new baryon states at CEBAF and elsewhere, we examine the decays of resonances which have already been seen in the partial-wave analyses, along with those of states which are predicted by the quark model but which remain undiscovered.The level of agreement between our calculation and the available widths from the partial-wave analyses in encouraging.
