We choose a number of physics processes where collisions of equal-charge muons show particular promise when the center-of-mass energy can be raised well above the few-TeV level, and illustrate the gains that can be realized by clever experimentation. We stress, in this context, the need for more work on higher degrees of muon polarization. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    Wide-angle photoproduction of pseudoscalar mesons is investigated under the assumption of dominance of the handbag mechanism, considering both quark helicity flip and non-flip. The partonic subprocess, meson photoproduction off quarks, is analysed with the help of a covariant decomposition of...

    We study the radiative decay into γ and a baryon of the SU(3) octet and decuplet of nine and ten resonances that are dynamically generated from the interaction of vector mesons with baryons of the octet and the decuplet respectively. We obtain quite different partial decay widths for the...

    An important feature of a μ-storage ring v-source is that it can be extended to the possibility of a future high-energy muon collider. The neutrino source provides a useful physics device that initiates key technologies required for future μ[sup +]-μ[sup -] colliders but with much less...

    The advanced adiabatic approach previously proposed for describing collision problems in atomic physics is extended to the specific case of mesic-atom collisions in the excited states n ≥ 2. The method and the algorithm of the calculations are described. The calculations of the...

    Results from direct numerical simulations of several homogeneous flows and fully developed turbulent channel flow indicate that the probability distribution function (pdf) of relative helicity density exhibits at most a 20% deviation from a flat distribution. Isotropic flows exhibit a slight...

    A novel technique for the injection of magnetic helicity into a closed volume is described. In this new approach, mechanical energy is converted directly into the production of magnetic helicity. Several geometries illustrate the flexibility of the approach. The application of mechanical...

    A numerical study of the evolution of cross helicity in driven/dissipative magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) is presented. The magnetofluid is incompressible and a twodimensional (2-D) periodic geometry is considered. Cross helicity, a measure of the correlation between fluctuations in the magnetic...
