Scalar mesons in radiative phi-meson decays into charged k-meson states

Öztürk, Fahri
The role of $f_{0}(980)$ and $a_{0}(980)$ scalar meson intermediate states in the mechanism of radiative $\phi (1020)$ meson decay into two charged $K (494)$ mesons and a photon $\phi\rightarrow K^{+} + K^{-} + \gamma$ is investigated. For the contribution of scalar meson intermediate state two models are considered. In the kaon-loop model, the scalar meson intermediate state couples the final state to the initial $\phi$ meson through a charged kaon-loop. The second model, called no-structure model, consist of point-like coupling of intermediate scalar meson state to the initial state. It is found that in the kaon-loop model, scalar meson intermediate state results in a considerable modification of the pure Bremsstrahlung photon spectrum.


Nuclear spinodal instabilities in stochastic mean-field approaches
Er, Nuray; Yılmaz, Osman; Department of Physics (2009)
Nuclear spinodal instabilities are investigated in non-relativistic and relativistic stochastic mean-field approaches for charge asymmetric and charge symmetric nuclear matter. Quantum statistical effect on the growth of instabilities are calculated in non-relativistic approach. Due to quantal effects, in both symmetric and asymmetric matter, dominant unstable modes shift towards longer wavelengths and modes with wave numbers larger than the Fermi momentum are strongly suppressed. As a result of quantum sta...
Quantum mechanics on curved hypersurfaces
Olpak, Mehmet Ali; Tekin, Bayram; Department of Physics (2010)
In this work, Schrödinger and Dirac equations will be examined in geometries that confine the particles to hypersurfaces. For this purpose, two methods will be considered. The first method is the thin layer method which relies on explicit use of geometrical relations and the squeezing of a certain coordinate of space (or spacetime). The second is Dirac’s quantization procedure involving the modification of canonical quantization making use of the geometrical constraints. For the Dirac equation, only the fir...
Scalar mesons in radiative phi-meson decays into neutral k-meson states
Korkmaz (Şişman), Canan; Yılmaz, Osman; Department of Physics (2006)
Radiative Decays of the phi-meson to the scalar mesons f0(980) and a0(980) are investigated within the framework of charged kaon loop model for both point-like scalar mesons and for scalar mesons with extended structure. Then, the radiative phi-meson decay into neutral K-meson is studied via a two step mechanism in which the scalar mesons couple the final state to the phi-meson through the charged kaon loop. The branching ratio of this decay is calculated and it is shown that this reaction will not provide ...
Hamilton-Jacobi theory of continuous systems
Güler, Y. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 1987-8)
The Hamilton-Jacobi partial differnetial equation for classical field systems is obtained in a 5n-dimensional phase space and it is integrated by the method of characteristics. Space-time partial derivatives of Hamilton’s principal functionsS μ (Φ i ,x ν ) (μ,ν=1,2,3,4) are identified as the energy-momentum tensor of the system.
Scalar-meson production in nucleon-nucleon collisions near threshold
Rekalo, MP; Tomasi-Gustafsson, E (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2003-12-01)
We establish the model-independent spin structure of the matrix elements for the near-threshold scalar-meson production in pp and np collisions, when the final particles are emitted in S-state. Polarization phenomena are derived in a general form. The properties of the t-channel dynamics, which is based on different meson exchanges, are studied in terms of the s-channel parametrization of the matrix element. The predictions of a model, based on pi + sigma exchanges are also presented.
