ABSTRACT

An upgraded (second) version of the package GENXICC ({\bf A Generator for Hadronic Production of the Double Heavy Baryons $\Xi_{cc}$, $\Xi_{bc}$ and $\Xi_{bb}$ by C.H. Chang, J.X. Wang and X.G. Wu,} [its first version: in Comput. Phys. Commun. {\bf 177} (2007) 467-478]) is presented. Users, with this version being implemented in PYTHIA and a GNU C compiler, may simulate full events of the production in various experimental environments conveniently. In comparison with the previous version, in order to implement it in PYTHIA properly, a subprogram for the fragmentation of the produced double heavy diquark to the relevant baryon is complemented and the interphase of the generator to PYTHIA is changed accordingly. In the subprogram, with explanation, certain necessary assumptions (approximations) are made so as to conserve the momenta and the QCD `color' flow for the fragmentation. Comment: 15 pages, 2 figures

    ABSTRACT: In this article, we study the ${1\over 2}^+$ doubly heavy baryon states $\Omega_{QQ}$ and $\Xi_{QQ}$ by subtracting the contributions from the corresponding ${1\over 2}^-$ doubly heavy baryon states with the QCD sum rules, and make reasonable predictions for their masses. Those doubly heavy baryon states maybe observed at the Tevatron, the LHCb and the PANDA.

    ABSTRACT: The hadronic production of the heavy-flavored hadron provides a challenging opportunity to test the validity of pQCD predictions. In the paper, we make a comparative study on the properties of the \(B^{(*)}_{s}\) hadroproduction within either the fixed-flavor-number scheme (FFNS) or the general-mass variable-flavor-number scheme (GM-VFNS). By using FFNS, as is previously adopted in the literature, one only needs to deal with the dominant gluon–gluon fusion mechanism via the subprocess \(g+g\rightarrow B^{(*)}_{s}+b+\bar{s}\). While by using GM-VFNS, one needs to deal with two mechanisms: one is the gluon–gluon fusion mechanism and the other is the extrinsic heavy quark mechanism via the subprocesses \(g+\bar{b}\to B^{(*)}_{s} +\bar{s}\) and \(g+s\to B^{(*)}_{s} +b\). It is found that both mechanisms can provide reasonable contributions to the \(B^{(*)}_{s}\) hadroproduction under the GM-VFNS, and there is double counting for those two mechanisms in specific kinematic regions. At the Tevatron, the differences between the estimations of FFNS and GM-VFNS are small, e.g. after cutting off the small p T events (cf. p T >4 GeV), the \(B^{(*)}_{s}\) p T -distributions are almost coincide with each other. However, these differences are obvious at the LHC. The forthcoming more precise data on LHC shall provide a good chance to check which scheme is more appropriate to deal with the \(B^{(*)}_{s}\)-meson production and to further study the heavy quark components in hadrons.

    ABSTRACT: In this article, we study the 3/2+{3\over 2}^{+} heavy and doubly heavy baryon states \varXi*cc\varXi^{*}_{cc}, \varOmega*cc\varOmega^{*}_{cc}, \varXi*bb\varXi^{*}_{bb}, \varOmega*bb\varOmega^{*}_{bb}, \varSigmac*\varSigma_{c}^{*}, \varXic*\varXi_{c}^{*}, \varOmegac*\varOmega_{c}^{*}, \varSigmab*\varSigma_{b}^{*}, \varXib*\varXi_{b}^{*} and \varOmegab*\varOmega_{b}^{*} by subtracting the contributions from the corresponding 3/2-{3\over 2}^{-} heavy and doubly heavy baryon states with the QCD sum rules, and we make reasonable predictions for their masses.
