I read that all baryons apart from the proton itself decay into protons (why though?) and that mesons do not decay into protons due to having less mass than protons. Thus it makes sense for the ...
When a heavy quark hadronizes it has some probability of forming a meson vs forming a baryon. I suspect there is a well known branching ratio for each type of hadron. Does anyone know what the ...
I'm trying to simulate inclusive $\chi_c$ production in $p \bar p$ collisions at very low energies (~ 5.5 GeV) using Pythia8 event generator. Leaving aside problems bounded with applicability of ...
I am trying to calculate U-spin for sigma baryons. I don't know why U-spin for (sigma+) and (sigma-) and (sigma*+) is 1/2 but for (sigma*-) is 3/2? I know that (sigma+) and (sigma-) are octet and ...
