Initial state radiation motivations






HadronicVacuum Polarization

Initial State Radiation: motivations

ISR studies at the(4S) can yield the same observables as the low energye+e-experiments

  • precise measurements of e+e- cross sections at low c.m. energy

  • hadron spectroscopy for 1 < s < 4 GeV

  • measurement of the ratio

  • R(s) allow the calculation of hadronic contribution to

    Anomalous magnetic moment of the muon

    Running Fine Structure Constant at Z0-mass

    by means of dispersion integrals:

Mf2 < s

~ 1/ s2

main contribution from low energy region

R measurement work in progress
R measurement: work in progress

  • CMD-2and KLOE recently measured s(e+e- → p+p-) at ~1% level

  • very few data with large errors for s > 1.4 GeV

    • DR ~ 10-15%

  • data from different experiments and different systematics

  • amhad and Daem will benefit of precise hadronic cross section measurements also at energies > 1 GeV

highest uncertainties for aem from energy region 1 < s < 5 GeV

perspectives on R measurements by BABAR:

  • comparable accuracy w.r.t. CMD-2 and KLOE for s < 1 GeV

  • few % accuracy for 1 < s < 3 GeV

relative contributions to the error on aem by energy range

  • Many analysis in progress:

  • p+p- pion form factor

  • p+p- p+p-

  • p+p- 0 0 r resonance recurrences

  • p+p- h

  • p+p- 0 w resonance recurrences

  • 5,7

  • 6 structures between 1 and 3 GeV

  • K+K-p+p, K+K-K+K-

  • K+K- , KSKLkaon form factor

  • K+K- h, f hfresonance recurrences

  • K0K 

  • f p04-quark state?

  • p p proton form factor

  • The ratio R will be measured from the sum of cross sections of all exclusive channels

  • J/yandy(2s) production via ISR

Mmm : 1  4 GeV

ISR equivalent luminosity

  • experimentally measured from

  • topology: “hard” g + 2 charged tracks + m-ID

  • statistically very competitive sample

  • uniform data all-over the energy range

limits of ISR techniques:

  • resolution on invariant mass:

    (limits the width of the narrowest

    resonances which can be measured)

J/y mass

after fit

s ~ 8 MeV/c2

a 1C kinematics fit (E and p conservation) improve the mass resolution (sJ/y~ 16 MeV/c2 before fit)

Inclusive hadronic spectra at s 10 gev
Inclusive hadronic spectra at s ~ 10 GeV

  • Hadronization:

    • not yet understood quantitatively

    • described by several models

    • many recent high-energy results

    • improved low-energy measurements would be useful

    • recently little theoretical progress

check consistency with fragmentation models

test scaling predictions

test QCD predictions

data at (4S) will contribute to the understanding of B decays

BABAR can provide precise measurements of inclusive spectra in e+e- events at s = 10.54 GeV

so far, have studied p±, K±, p/p and h

measurements also done at(4S)

p±, K±, p/p spectra



cross sections

  • data samples used in these analysis:

  • 0.9 fb-1 off-resonance

  • 3.6 fb-1 on-resonance

  • given:

  • - excellent particle-IDsystem

  • - tracking, photon, PID efficiencies

  • calibrated from data

  • BABAR can reach few % precision level

BABAR cover the full kinematics range

precision comparable to that from measurements at s = 91 GeV

test cross section scaling properties up to very high values of


Scaled momentum xp = 2pcm/Ecm

Fabio Anulli

P k p p spectra1
p±, K±, p/p spectra

cross sections scaling





Hadronization should be scale invariant except for “small” effects of hadron masses, running of aS ,…

scaling violations at low xp, due to masses are well known and modeled adequately (here JETSET is shown for comparison)

  • expect substantial scaling violations at high xp

    • seen clearly in p data; reproduced by models

    • NOT seen in p/p data! Wrong model predictions

    • observed violations in K, h data, also smaller than in models

important experimental input for tuning fragmentation models

Fabio Anulli

P k p p test qcd


p±, K±, p/p : test QCD

Gaussian fit to cross section distributions

  • In the Modified Leading Logarithmic Approximation (MLLA ), distributions versus ξ = -ln(xp) should be Gaussian near the peak.

peak position x* from symmetric gaussian fits



  • QCD prediction is that x* falls monotonically with increasing particle mass.

while it is observed x*p x*K

Fabio Anulli

P k p p test qcd1
p±, K±, p/p : test QCD

peak position vsEcm

  • All data are consistent with the expected logarithm dependence with the center-of-mass energy

  • but, different slopes, protons data above kaons…

  • p/p

x* peak position

  • total number of particles produced per event extrapolated using fit to dσ/dξ distribution

  • ISR has been proven to be an effective tools to study low energy e+e- processes

    • very rich program in the energy range s < 4 GeV

    • precise e+e- cross section measurements will improve the accuracy on the hadronic contribution to (g-2)m and aQED(MZ)

    • many interesting results in hadron spectroscopy expected

    • precise measurements Gee and Gtot for J/Y to be published

  • lots of hadron physics at BABAR !

  • inclusive spectra of p±, K±, p/p and h have been measured, with competitive precision

    • produced both in e+e- annihilation and (4S) events

    • test of predictions of QCD, models of jet fragmentation and B hadron decays

    • clear discrepancies between models and data for protons (also for kaons and etas)

Study of e e p p
Study ofe+e-→ p+p-

  • topology: “hard” g + 2 charged tracks + NO m-ID

  • ratio (bin-by-bin) cancels:

    • luminosity

    • radiative corrections

    • efficiencies: photon, trigger, tracking

  • relatively large background from e+e-, m+m-andK+K-

hard work! less than 1% systematic errors needed for (g-2)m

hope to have results soon

Fabio Anulli

H gg spectrum
h → gg spectrum

  • similar analysis to measure inclusive production of h in continuum and in (4S) decays

    • 35.5 fb-1 on-resonance data

    • 3.8 fb-1 off-resonance data

  • use dominant decay h → gg

  • fit the γγmass with an asymmetric function for the signal.

  • selection slightly different on- and off-peak

  • very good agreement with JETSET at high xp

  • overestimation by JETSET at low momentum

  • clear scaling violation.
