  • The analysis is carried out within the frame of phenomenological model of diffractive production and quark statistics based on additive quark model (AQM)

  • We make use of low energy data on charm production and collider data on diffractive dissociation

  • At collider energies 200, 540, 900, 1800 GeV , the values of σppccX (s) were obtained by a quark statistics method

  • It is established, that logarithmic function with universal numerical parameters describes the whole set of low-energy and high-energy data with high accuracy

  • The expected values of cross section are σppccX =

    250 ± 15 µb at TEVATRON energy s = 1.96 TeV and

    355 ± 22 µb at LHC energy s = 14 TeV

  • The estimation of the total charm production cross section is based on processing of collider data on diffractive dissociation with use of phenomenological model of diffractive charm production and quark statistics.

  • Cross section of diffractive dissociation in pp-interactons:

    SPS --- √s = 200 GeV, 900 GeV (Ansorge et al., 1986)

    TEVATRON --- √s = 546 GeV, 1800 Gev (Abe et al., 1994)

    σDD(pp  X) = CDD ln(s/so)

  • The basic assumptions consist in the following:

    1) charm production occurs in process of diffractive

    dissociation;

    2) charm production cross section is extracted from

    total cross section by quark statistics rules:

    σtot( pp  cc + X) ≈ kcc× σDD(pp X), kcc ≈ 0.025 ± 0.004

    uu : dd : ss : cc = 1 : 1 : (0.38 ± 0.07) : (0.06 ± 0.01)

Data on total cross section of charm production at s 20 40 gev

Data on total cross section of charm production at s = 20 − 40 GeV

To begin with, we clear up the opportunities of AQM and

logarithmic dependence for cross section in the description of data on charm production in pN and N interactions at low energies:

σNcc+X(s) = ⅔ σpNcc+X(3s/2)

σpNcc+X(s) = CpN ln(s/so)

CpN = 28.84 ± 2.10 μb, √so = 18.51 ± 0.36 GeV , 2 = 0.89 (1)

The obtained values of charm production cross section have the status

of model dependent processing collider data

  • Ideas of phenomenological models of diffractive production and quark statistics were repeatedly tested at processing most variousexperimental data.

  • These models give reliable quantitative predictions at the

    accuracy level 10 - 20 % after fixing several parameters by

    experimental data.

  • Therefore we consider possible to use the results (3) for forecasting cross section of charm production in pp/pp

    interactions in overaccelerating energy range.

Forecast of charm production cross section at s 1 8 tev

Forecast of charm production cross sectionat √s > 1.8 TeV

These results mean the flux of “prompt” muons becomes equal to the flux

of “conventional” (from ,K-mesons) muons of CR at Eμ = 500 − 600 TeV


Yu f novoseltsev 1 g m vereshkov 1 2 1 institute for nuclear research of ras

There are three possible (and alternative) variants of results, each of which represents the certain interest.

  • The measured flux of CR muons within the limits of measurement errors coincides with calibration flux calculated according to the estimation (4).

    In this case the estimation (4) can be used for testing microscopic models.

  • The measured flux of CR muons will exceed noticeably the calibration value, but the σpp  ccX at energies in the region of a break of CR energy spectrum will stay essentially smaller 10 mb. In this case it will be necessary to recognize, that either quark statistics rules become incorrect in the area of high energies, or the new mechanism of charm production, distinct from the diffractive one, is included at these energies.

  • The measured flux of CR muons will correspond formally to σpp  ccX > 10 mb This result will mean that VHE muons carry away the energy from EAS forming an observable break of CR spectrum. It is necessary to note, that sources of such big numbers of VHE muons, most likely, are not reduced to charmed particles − a New physics will required for interpretation of such effect.
