In an experiment currently being performed at the Institute for High Energy Physics, Serpukhov, Russia, a beam of charged kaons is directed on a copper target. In the electromagnetic field of the target nuclei, two reactions occur: Kγ → Kπ and Kγ → Kπ. A peculiar distinction between these two reactions is that there is a chiral anomaly contribution in the former reaction, but not in the latter. This contribution can be directly seen through comparison of the cross sections of these reactions… Expand

Contributions of unstable and virtual particles to nuclear form factors
Abstract.The coherent meson scattering off heavy nuclei with the production of two particles in the final state is investigated. We obtain the form factors for the direct production of the finalExpand
Dispersive analysis of the Primakoff reaction $$\gamma K \rightarrow K \pi $$
We provide a dispersion-theoretical representation of the reaction amplitudes $$\gamma K\rightarrow K \pi $$ in all charge channels, based on modern pion–kaon P-wave phase shift input.Expand
Polarization of Λ(1405) in the γp → K+πΣ reaction
Abstract In this paper, we study the polarization of the Λ ( 1405 ) in the γ p → K + π Σ reaction within an effective Lagrangian approach and isobar model. In our model, the Λ ( 1405 ) is excitedExpand
