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 ...
In SU(3) quark model of hadronic structure one assumes that mass splitings between hadrons is due to difference between masses of $s$ quark and $u,d$. This is modeled by perturbation Hamiltonian $$ \...
I'm trying to understand how to construct effective lagrangians for the hadrons. I understand the procedure for the mesons but I get stuck on baryons. In particular I don't understand how the baryons ...
In the PDG are listed the decay modes of the known particles. I wonder if there exist lists with the production modes of particles. It is, lists with all the possible parent particles that decay into ...
