Results from the analysis of the CLAS data on double charge pion electroproduction.

presented by V.I.Mokeev

The studies of N* electrocouplings at various Q2 elucidate relevant degrees of freedom in their structure and allow us to understand quark interactions, which are responsible for baryon formation from fundamental constituents.

Promising way to study non-Abelian origin of strong interactions in non-perturbative domain, predictedin lattice simulations for quark binding in baryons.

How to obtain reliable information on N* electrocouplings. pion electroproduction.

Non-resonant amplitudes and N* hadronic couplings in various meson electroproduction channels are entirely different, while N* electrocouplings are expected to be the same.

Credible evaluation of N* electrocouplings should be achieved in successful description of all available observables in various electroproduction channels combined with common resonance electrocouplings.

Why the data on 1 pion electroproduction.p/2p electroproduction mechanisms are vital for N* electrocoupling evaluation in any exclusive channel.

Simplest measurements with unpolarized e- beam and p target, no use of polarization observables in the final state offer 9 independent single differential cross-sections in each (W,Q2) bin.

All these cross-sections are available from CLAS for the first time.

Contributing mechanisms may be established from theirs manifestations in variety of observables JM approach.

  • Electrocouplings obtained in two independent analyses of 1p and 2p channels are in reasonable agreement.

EBAC is developing coupled channel approach to disentangle meson-baryon dressing and “bare” quark core contributions to N* electrocouplings.


The contribution from quark core increases with Q2. Data on N* electrocouplings at high Q2 are needed to study quark interactions in baryons .

3q core

After 12 GeV Upgrade CLAS12 will be only facility foreseen worldwide, capable to study electrocouplings for full spectrum of N*’s at Q2 from 5.0 to 10 GeV2.

  • The contributions from quark models of baryon structure are needed. In particular:

  • contributions from potential quark models, allowing us to relate N* electrocouplings to the binding potential and the interactions, responsible for 3q configuration mixing;

  • contributions from the models, based on Bethe-Saltpeter formalism, which allow us, using the data on N* electrocouplings, to constrain/establish quark scattering amplitudes, dressed quark propagators and elucidate their connection to QCD within the framework Dyson-Schwinger equations;

  • establish constraints, imposed by the data on N* electrocouplings to light cone wave functions (LCWF) for N*, and relate LCWF to QCD. (S.Brodsky hep-ph/0412101)

  • it will be important to have LQCD predictions for understanding of the results from N* phenomenology.

  • Analysis of the most comprehensive worldwide CLAS data on ep→p-p+p cross-sections, carried out with the framework of JM approach, allowed us to establish from successful data fit the mechanisms with significant contributions to this exclusive channel in N* excitation region at Q2 from 0.2 to 1.5 GeV2.

  • The amplitudes/cross-sections of various isobar channels were determined from the fit of the CLAS 2p data. They will be used by EBAC for evaluation of N* electrocouplings in advanced coupled channel analysis of various exclusive channels combined. The resonant amplitudes in 2p electroproduction were isolated in the data fit.

  • P11(1440) and D13(1520) electrocouplings at Q2 from 0.2 to 0.6 GeV2 were obtained for the first time from analysis of 2p electroproduction data. Extension of this analysis is in progress with a goal to obtained electrocuplings for almost all N*’s with M < 3.0 GeV at 0.3<Q2<5.0 GeV2.

  • Comparison of the CLAS data on P11(1440), D13(1520) electrocouplings with quark model expectations showed, that various degrees of freedom contribute to the structure of N*’s at low and high Q2. Focused effort of baryon structure theory is needed to relate N* phenomenology to fundamental strong interaction mechanisms, responsible for baryon formation.

  • Short term objective: evaluation of electrocouplings for all well established N*’s with M<2.0 GeV at 0.25<Q2<1.5GeV2from E93-006,E94-005 data within the framework of JM06.

  • Intermediate term objective: evaluation of electrocouplings for all well established N*, search for new N* in mass range W<3.0 GeV and 0.<Q2<5.0 GeV2 from analysis of e1-6,e1e,g1c,g11 CLAS data. Update of JM06 is expected, implementing partonic degrees of freedom in combination with meson-baryon content.

  • Final goal: comprehensive information on electrocouplings for all established N*’s as well as for possible new baryon states in entire N* excitation region and at photon virtualities from 0. to 5.0 GeV2.
