Elastic double diffractive production of axialvector χ_{c} (1^{+ +}) mesons and the LandauYang theorem
(2009) In Physics Letters. Section B: Nuclear, Elementary Particle and HighEnergy Physics 680(1). p.6271 Abstract
We discuss exclusive elastic double diffractive axialvector χ_{c} (1^{+}) meson production in protonantiproton collisions at the Tevatron. The amplitude for the process is derived within the k_{t}factorization approach with unintegrated gluon distribution functions (UGDFs). We show that the famous LandauYang theorem is not applicable in the case of offshell gluons. Differential cross sections for different UGDFs are calculated. We compare exclusive production of χ_{c} (1^{+}) and χ_{c} (0^{+}). The contribution of χ_{c} (1^{+}) to the J / Ψ + γ channel is smaller than that of the χ_{c} (0^{+}) decay, but not negligible and can be measured. The... (More)

The contribution of χ_{c} (1^{+}) to the J / Ψ + γ channel is smaller than that of the χ_{c} (0^{+}) decay, but not negligible and can be measured. The numerical value of the ratio of the both contributions is much less dependent on the UGDFs modeling than the cross sections themselves.
