We observe a narrow enhancement near 2m(p) in the invariant mass spectrum of pp pairs from radiative J/psi-->gammapp decays. No similar structure is seen in J/psi-->pi(0)pp decays. The results are based on an analysis of a 58 x 10(6) event sample of J/psi decays accumulated with the BESII detector at the Beijing electron-positron collider. The enhancement(More)
The processes ψ(2S) → γπ+π−, γK+K− and γpp̄ have been studied using a sample of 3.79 × 106 ψ(2S) decays. We determine the total width of the χc0 to be Γ tot χc0 = 14.3 ± 2.0 ± 3.0 MeV. We present the first measurement of the branching fraction B(χc0 → pp̄) = (15.9 ± 4.3 ± 5.3) × 10−5, where the first error is statistical and the second one systematic.(More)
In a sample of 58 million J/ψ events collected with the BES II detector, the process J/ψ → γηc is observed in five different decay channels: γKKππ, γππππ, γKK Sπ ∓ (with K S → ππ), γφφ (with φ→ KK) and γpp̄. From a combined fit of all five channels, we determine the mass and full-width of ηc to be mηc = 2977.5 ± 1.0 (stat.) ± 1.2 (syst.) MeV/c and Γηc =(More)
A comparison of the rates for ψ(2S) → π+π−J/ψ, J/ψ → l+l− and J/ψ → anything is used to determine the J/ψ leptonic branching fractions. The results are B(J/ψ → e+e−) = (5.90 ± 0.05 ± 0.10)% and B(J/ψ → μ+μ−) = (5.84 ± 0.06 ± 0.10)%, where the first error is statistical and the second is systematic. Assuming lepton universality, the leptonic branching(More)

The processes ψ(2S) → γπ+π−, γK+K− and γpp̄ have been studied using a sample of 3.7× 106 produced ψ(2S) decays. We determine the total width of the χc0 to be Γ tot χc0 = 14.3± 2.0± 3.0 MeV. We present the first measurement of the branching fraction B(χc0 → pp̄) = (16.3± 4.4± 5.4)× 10−5, where the first error is statistical and the second one systematic.(More)
We report first measurements of the branching fractions: B(ψ2S → γη ) = (1.54±0.31±0.20)×10−4 and B(ψ2S → γη) = (0.53±0.31±0.08)×10 −4 . The ψ(2S) → γη result is consistent with expectations of a model that considers the possibility of η-ηc mixing. The ratio of the ψ(2S) → γη ′ and ψ(2S) → γη rates is used to determine the pseudoscalar octet-singlet mixing(More)
