The total bkg is at level of 0.5%. Main background sources: ppp + p→en ppp with p misidentified pp0p0 or p0 + p0(Dalitz) +e misidentified and gs outside the LKr Gianluca Lamanna – HEP07**● Data**▬ MC Mpp Ke4: Fitting procedure • The form factors (F,G,H and d) are extracted minimizing a log-likehood estimator in each of 10(Mpp)x5(Men)x5(cosqe)x5(cosqp)x12(f)=15000 equi-populated bins. In each bin the correlation between the 4+1 parameters is taken into account. • The form factors structure is studied in 10 bins of Mpp, assuming constant form factors in each bins • A 2D fit (Mpp, Men) is used to study the Fs expansion • All the results are given wrt to Fs(q=0) constant term, due to the unspecified overall normalization (BR is not measured) Gianluca Lamanna – HEP07**Ke4: Fitting procedure and results**Fs(q2) Fp(q2) • Fs is quadratic in q2 • First measurement of Fp≠0 Gp(q2) Hp(q2) • Linear in q2 • No linear term (hp’) Gianluca Lamanna – HEP07**Ke4: form factors result**• Systematics checks: • Acceptance • Background • PID • Radiative corrections • Evaluation of the sensitivity of the form factors on the Men dependence of the normalization Preliminary (2003 data) f’s/fs = 0.165±0.011±0.006 f’’s/fs= -0.092±0.011±0.007 f’e/fs = 0.081±0.011±0.008 fp/fs = -0.048±0.004±0.004 gp/fs = 0.873±0.013±0.012 g’p/fs = 0.081±0.022±0.014 hp/fs = -0.411±0.019±0.007 • All the Form factors are measured relatively to fs • first evidence of fp≠0 and fe’≠0 • The f.f. are measured at level of <5% of precision while the slopes at~15% (factor 2 or 3 improvement wrt previous measurements) • Separately measured on K+ and K- and then combined (different statistical error) Gianluca Lamanna – HEP07**Ke4:d dependence**• The extraction of the pion scattering lengths from the d=ds-dp phase shift needs external theoretical and experimental data inputs . • The Roy equations, for instance, provide this relation between d and a0,a2 near threshold, extrapolating from the Mpp>0.8 GeV region. The precision of these data defines the width of the Universal Band in the (a0,a2) plane. • The fit of the experimental points using the Roy equations in the universal band allows to extract the a0 and a2 values Gianluca Lamanna – HEP07**Ke4: (a0,a2) plane: result and comparison**• Minimizing the c2 in the 2D fit it’s possible to identify the favoured solution (and the corresponding ellipse) • The E865 and NA48/2 results agreement is marginal (manly due to the last d point in E865) (work ongoing (see Gasser talk at Kaon07) ) • The correlation between a0 and a2 is ~96% (similar for both experiment) Gianluca Lamanna – HEP07**Ke4: “neutral”**Selection: one electron track in the DCH , 4 photons in the LKr, p0 mass constraints, missing Pt. 9642 events in 2003 (previous exp. 216 events)~30000 events in 2004 Background: pp0p0 with a misidentified p, ke3g+1 accidental ~ 3% in 2003 (276 events) ~ 2% in 2004 Due to the p0p0 symmetry only the s-wave is present (fs’, fs’’) f’e has been measured consistent with 0 within the present statistics BR(Ke400)prel= (2.587±0.026stat±0.019syst±0.029ext)·10-5 f’s/fs=0.129±0.036±0.020 f’’s/fs=-0.040±0.034±0.020 Preliminary Gianluca Lamanna – HEP07**i**dij Vertex LKr j Z(i,j) Z(k,l) Dz Cusp: K±→p±p0p0 selection • Offline selection:among all the possiblegpairings, the couple for which c2 is smallest is selected • The K-decay vertex is the average between the two decay vertices • After associating a charged track to the 2p0sthe compatibility with the PDG kaon mass is requested to be ± 6 MeV.
