Abstract

We discuss exclusive elastic double diffractive axial-vector χc (1+) meson production in proton-antiproton collisions at the Tevatron. The amplitude for the process is derived within the kt-factorization approach with unintegrated gluon distribution functions (UGDFs). We show that the famous Landau-Yang theorem is not applicable in the case of off-shell gluons. Differential cross sections for different UGDFs are calculated. We compare exclusive production of χc (1+) and χc (0+). The contribution of χc (1+) to the J / Ψ + γ channel is smaller than that of the χc (0+) decay, but not negligible and can be measured. The...

We discuss exclusive elastic double diffractive axial-vector χc (1+) meson production in proton-antiproton collisions at the Tevatron. The amplitude for the process is derived within the kt-factorization approach with unintegrated gluon distribution functions (UGDFs). We show that the famous Landau-Yang theorem is not applicable in the case of off-shell gluons. Differential cross sections for different UGDFs are calculated. We compare exclusive production of χc (1+) and χc (0+). The contribution of χc (1+) to the J / Ψ + γ channel is smaller than that of the χc (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. © 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
