Angular distributions in strange particles two body-decays

  • M. Jacob


General considerations are developed for the decay of a particle into two particles of arbitrary spins and some formulae are derived. The formalism introduced suits easily parity non conserving decays. The results obtained are applied to the KΜ2 decay and a numerical calculation is carried out in the special case of spin 2; the polarization of the emitted Μ-meson is also discussed.


Si espongono considerazioni generali sul decadimento di una particella in due particelle di spin arbitrario e si derivano aloune formule. Il formalismo introdotto si adatta facilmente ai decadimenti non conservanti la parità. Si applicano i risultati ottenuti al decadimento KΜ2 e si esegue il calcolo numerico per il caso speciale dello spin 2; si discute anche la polarizzazione del mesone Μ emesso.
