T-Violation in Electron- and Antineutrino-Induced Hyperon Production
We study the effect of T-violation on the total scattering cross section and the polarization observables in the electron- and antineutrino-induced hyperon production off the free proton target. The assumption of T-violation requires the second class current form factors to be imaginary, which implies the transverse component of the hyperon polarization perpendicular to the plane of production to be nonzero. The observation of hyperons in the final state through their decay products, i.e., \(\varLambda /\varSigma \longrightarrow N \pi \) and the structure of the angular distribution of pion will give information about the polarization of hyperons. The experimental observation of the transverse component of the polarization can be used to study the underlying physics of T-violation.
