ABSTRACT
The results of first measurements on the K+K- meson pair production in proton-proton collisions using the COSY-11 facility are presented and discussed. At a beam momentum of pbeam = 3.356 GeV/c a total cross section for the charged kaon pair production below the [uppercase_phi_synonym] meson threshold was successfully extracted. In parallel to these measurements, total and differential cross section information on the η′ meson production in proton-proton collisions have been gained which extend the previously obtained data up to excess energies of Q = 47 MeV. Additionally, the results of first measurements at COSY-11 on the production of η3He pairs at intermediate excess energies of Q = 5 to 40 MeV are presented and discussed.

    The PHENIX experiment at RHIC has measured neutral pion, eta, and direct photon production in √sNN = 200 GeV p+p and Au+Au collisions. The neutral pion and direct photon yields in p+p collisions are well described by NLO pQCD predictions. In Au+Au collisions the neutral pion yield is...

    Quarkonium hadroproduction in association with a photon at high energies provides a probe of the dynamics of the strong interactions as it is dependent on the nuclear gluon distribution. Therefore, it could be used to constrain the behavior of the nuclear gluon distribution in...

    To obtain an exact solution of a four-body system containing two quarks and two antiquarks interacting through two-body terms is a cumbersome task that has been tackled with more or less success during the last decades. We present an exact method for the study of four-quark systems based on the...

    The uncertainties in estimating the hadronic production of theBc meson are studied in the framework of the completeapproach of perturbative QCD and the gluon-gluon fusion mechanism. Quantitative comparisons of the production at TEVATRON and LHC are made. Considering the detectors at TEVATRON and...

    We propose a new mechanism for the production of D-mesons at forward rapidities and demonstrate that the resulting transverse momentum spectra are strongly dependent on the behavior of the nucleon charm distribution function at large Bjorken x. Our results show clearly that the hypothesis of...

    We consider the process γγ→H1H̄2, where H1 and H2 are either mesons or baryons. The experimental findings for such quantities as the pp̄ and KSKS differential cross sections, in the energy range currently probed, are found often to be in disparity with the scaling behaviour...

    Radiative leptonic decays of the pseudoscalar mesons are studied in the bilocal relativistic potential model. Partial and total widths of the pion decay are calculated. It is shown that, in the model under consideration, the decay widths can be determined by calculating the vector ( f v ) and...

    The QCD Sum Rules method which links the hadronic degrees of freedom with the underlying QCD parameters, serves as a very useful tool to extract qualitative and quantitative information about hadron properties. The QCD sum rules method has been extensively used to investigate the meson-baryon...
