Photoproduction of the Θ+and its vector and axial-vector structure
Chinese Physics C, High Energy Physics & Nuclear Physics
We present recent investigations on the vector and axial-vector transitions of the baryon antidecuplet within the framework of the self-consistent SU(3) chiral quark-soliton model, taking into account the 1/N_c rotational and linear m_s corrections. The main contribution to the electric-like transition form factor comes from the wave-function corrections. This is a consequence of the generalized Ademollo-Gatto theorem. It is also found that in general the leading-order contributions are almost
... anceled by the rotational 1/N_c corrections. The results are summarized as follows: the vector and tensor K^*-N-Theta coupling constants, g_K^*-N-Theta=0.74 - 0.87 and f_K^*-N-Theta=0.53 - 1.16, respectively, and Gamma_Theta->KN=0.71 MeV, based on the result of the K-N-Theta coupling constant g_K-n-Theta=0.83. We also show the differential cross sections and beam asymmetries, based on the present results. We also discuss the connection of present results with the original work by Diakonov, Petrov, and Polyakov.
