Glueball plus pion production in hadron collisions

  • Francesco Murgia

Using a non-relativistic gluon bound-state model for glueballs (G), we compute the subprocess\(q\bar q \to G\pi \), and we therefrom derive the yield of the overall reaction\(p\bar p \to G\pi X\), assuming the glueball and the pion to be emitted with their transverse momenta large, opposite and approximately equal. Numerical results are presented in the form ofp T spectra for various glueball candidates and their possible quantum states, assuming those particles to be produced, in the type of reactions here considered, at high-energy\(p\bar p\) colliders such as the CERN\(Sp\bar pS\).
