Explanations for this asymmetry


Meson cloud model l.jpg
Meson cloud model

  • The nucleon was viewed as a bare nucleon plus a series of baryon-meson Fock states which result from the fluctuation of nucleon to baryon plus meson then the physical proton wave function is


So the quark distribution functions q x in the proton is l.jpg

the splitting function is

In a full calculation, we should include all kinds of mesons and baryons. While the probability of baryon-meson fluctuation should decrease with the invariant mass of the baryon-meson Fock state increasing, we can neglect the effects of Fock states with higherinvariant mass

Pion, the lightest meson, plays the dominant role. Difference between u_bar and d_bar in virtual pion clouds can provide the large lightflavor asymmetry in proton naturally

The dominant role is played by the pion, while itprovides the ratio either increases monotonically with x or turns back towards unity too slowly.


Flavor symmetric sea contribution l.jpg
Flavor symmetric sea contribution and baryons. While the probability of baryon-meson fluctuation should

  • bare nucleon sea quarks

    (M. Alberg, E. M. Henley, Nucl. Phys. A663 (2000) 301)

  • isoscalar meson, such as omega, sigma

    (M. Alberg, E. M. Henley, G. A. Miller, Phys. Lett. B471 (2000) 396)


Using different bare sea quarks l.jpg

Comparison of a harder bare nucleon sea quarks (thick solid line) with a traditional bare sea quarks (dashed line) .

The thin solid line is only Pi contribution to the ratio


Adding sigma meson in this model l.jpg
Adding sigma meson in this model and baryons. While the probability of baryon-meson fluctuation should

  • Sigma meson

    a) isoscalar scalar meson

    b) chiral partner of Pi

    c) not well established in experiment


The splitting function l.jpg
The splitting function and baryons. While the probability of baryon-meson fluctuation should


The quark distribution functions of sigma meson l.jpg
the quark distribution functions of sigma meson and baryons. While the probability of baryon-meson fluctuation should

We assume the valence and sea quark distribution of mesons related here are the same.


Adding sigma effects here l.jpg
Adding sigma effects here and baryons. While the probability of baryon-meson fluctuation should

Our calculations illustrate that the larger value of tends to give small values of the ratio and decreasing causes the maximum value of the ratio to be large and to appear at higher value of x


Together with omega meson l.jpg
Together with omega meson and baryons. While the probability of baryon-meson fluctuation should

  • compare pion+omega (dashed curve, Alberg-Henley’s work) to pion+omega+sigma.


Parameters related omega meson l.jpg
Parameters related omega meson and baryons. While the probability of baryon-meson fluctuation should

  • Lambda_omega as 1.5GeV could cover over the sigma contribution

  • we present the number of the related mesons in the proton with the different cutoff values


Parameters and meson numbers in the proton l.jpg
Parameters and meson numbers in the proton and baryons. While the probability of baryon-meson fluctuation should

  • The larger cutoff value leads to a large meson number in proton

  • A reasonable picture of proton favors smaller cutoff of omega


Summary l.jpg
Summary and baryons. While the probability of baryon-meson fluctuation should

  • The inclusion of the sigmameson cloud effects has an improvement of the description for light flavor sea quarks in the proton

  • We also provides a picture of a reasonable small n_omega with a smaller cutoff in the proton.

  • Sigma meson may play an important role in meson cloud model
