Yes, it is OZI-suppressed. This confirms Eq. Problem 3. They only travel 10, 2.
The 4-momentum of a virtual particle could be anything. Not a substantial addition! After the collision, in the CM frame, at threshold: Square both sides: For maximum EB we certainly want C and D to come off opposite to B, and the only question is how best to apportion the momentum between them.
Differentiate with respect to x: We can test for this by calculating E at the end points: Emax is a maximum, not a minimum. Solve for v: X m2 c4 mc2 mc2 2mc2 Problem 3. Likewise, the incoming and outgoing A have same energy E0A in Breit frame, since their momenta are opposite.
X c2 Problem 3. Conservation of momentum: This representation is not faithful. Problem 4.
The usual matrix identity is unitary. Finally, matrix multiplication is associative, so U n a group. The identity, inverse, and associativity requirements are still met, so O n is a group. Therefore, SO n is closed. Yes, it is Abelian. No, it is not in SO 2. Evidently this classi- cal model cannot be taken literally. X Problem 4. So this process would violate conservation of angular momentum.
If we allow for orbital angular momentum 1 in the final state, any half-integer spin would work. But 2 seems the most likely possibility. Do the probabilities add to 1? X 35 7 5 35 35 Problem 4. Do the probabili- ties add to 1? X 70 35 14 35 70 70 Problem 4. X 2 2 [Note: I used Problem 4. We have: The ratios are not zero, of course—evidently there is a lot of resonant background.
This process does not conserve isospin, and hence is not a possible strong interaction.
The vector mesons decay by the strong interaction long before they would have a chance to interconvert. Then define right-handedness: Identifying the particle types is easy—just make a list in order of increasing mass.
Yes , it is relativistic. Problem 5. X 2m 8m3 c2 Problem 5. From Eq.
So there are 6 energy levels in all: Using Eq. So there are 10 levels in all. But it turns out that 3 P2 and 3 D2 are degenerate, so in fact there are just 9 distinct energy levels. The unperturbed energy of all these states is Eq. In addition there is an annihilation correction, which applies only to the triplet S state Eq. From these we must construct an energy: F0 M1 M2 M3 M4 Expt Level spacings: The results are not exact, of course, because a the potential Eq.
All things considered, the agreement is surprisingly good. For the vector bottom mesons: The other five 2 corners are constructed in the same way: X 2 Evidently these phases are consistent. This is the color analog to the flavor singlet Eq. From Eqs. From the figures on pp.
The following structure is antisymmetric, as you can easily check: Following the method of Section 5. Meanwhile, for the proton Example 5. The isomerism of elementary particles. L7 This textbook has didactic qualities which make it suitable as an introduction into the physics of what are most improperly called "elementary particles".
The author manages to give an up-to-date exposition of the vast subject, accessible to students with no more than an elementary grounding in quantum mechanics; all the required theoretical concepts and techniques are fully explained either in the text or in appendices.
It is a bit disheartening to see textbook after textbook slavishly perpetuating the untidy form of expression which has been allowed by negligence or ignorance to take root in the theory of the constituents of matter.
How is it that authors of textbooks, who bestow such care in ensuring the accuracy of their formulae, apparently do not realize that they have an equal responsibility in using the most adequate terminology to express the meaning of these formulae?
It is perhaps a bit harsh to take the present author to task on this point, for he is not among the worst; but he is no better than the others in not sufficiently emphasizing the most essential physical aspects such as the complementarity of field and particle although they are conceptually far simpler than the abstract features to which he gives prominence.
The system of unit symbols and designations sanctioned by the International Union of Physics ought to be strictly followed thus, e. Landau Pergamon, Oxford, Landau I Pergamon, Oxford, The usefulness of a collection of Landau's papers needs no emphasis.
It is sad to think that he has not been able to prepare it himself, but the task has been done with great care and good judgment by D. Several articles of minor importance listed in an appendix have been wisely omitted.
All the others, totalling a hundred, are here republished in English some translations from the German or the Russian being specially prepared for this edition.
They have been placed in strictly chronological order, but an introduction, briefy surveying Landau's contributions to the various domains of physics, allows the reader to select the papers belonging to each particular topic.
