The measured cross section s(K+K-) has a very large error.

We prefer to evaluate it using the formula

Phase space distribution

EPA

The MC generator used accounts for non negligible high pT values for e+e- and so for the h, that is different from EPA predictions

Results

BR(hp+p-p0)=22.73%


Search for meson production in interactions with e e colliding beams at s 1 gev

e1 (no pT cut) = 0.209 ± 0.003

e2 (pT cut) = 0.196 ± 0.003

Systematics

  • Output s(hg) value always 15% lower than expected value

  • Spread among results from different ch2 cuts ~ 11%

  • For a fixed ch2 cut, the difference between pL and Mmiss2 fits ~ 2%

  • With or without pT<100 MeV cut, related to the generated pT distribution for MC signal ~ 3%

s(e+e- e+e-h, s=1 GeV) = (50±2stat±9syst) pb

Conclusions

  • ggh events have been observed in the same mass range of interest for other studies (see ggp0p0)

  • The cross section e+e-e+e-hp+p-p0e+e- has been measured and found consistent with the EPA prediction even at small √s value compared with existing literatures
