PWA 10 - ATHOS 5 Workshop 2018

The International Workshop on Partial Wave Analyses and Advanced Tools for Hadron Spectroscopy, PWA10/ATHOS5, is a combination of the 10th International Workshop on Pion-Nucleon Partial Wave Analysis and the Interpretation of Baryon Resonances and the 5th Workshop on Partial Wave Analysis Tools for Hadron Spectroscopy. It will take place at the Institute of High Energy Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing, China. Previous editions of this workshop include PWA9/ATHOS4 (U. Bonn, 2017) and PWA8/ATHOS3 (GWU, 2015). 

The aim of the workshop is to bring together experimental and theoretical groups working in hadron spectroscopy for constructive discussions of recent results, open issues and future perspectives of the field. Common issues in meson and baryon spectroscopy related to partial wave analyses and the interpretation of data will be emphasized.

PWA10/ATHOS5 Workshop, Beijing, China, July 16 - 20, 2018.

PRC: Fixed-t analyticity as a constraint in single-energy partial-wave analyses of meson photoproduction reactions

Paper published in Phys. Rev. C 97.015207 - Published 31 January 2018

Fixed-t analyticity as a constraint in single-energy partial-wave analyses of meson photoproduction reactions

Partial-wave amplitudes of meson photoproduction reactions are an important source of information in baryon spectroscopy. We investigate a new approach in single-energy partial-wave analyses of these reactions. Instead of using a constraint to theoretical models in order to achieve solutions which are continuous in energy, we enforce the analyticity of the amplitudes at fixed values of the Mandelstam variable t. We present an iterative procedure with successive fixed-t amplitude analyses which constrain the single-energy partial-wave analyses and apply this method to the $\gamma p \rightarrow \eta p$. We use pseudodata, generated by the EtaMAID model, to test the method and to analyze ambiguities. Finally, we present an analytically constrained partial-wave analysis using experimental data for four polarization observables recently measured at MAMI and GRAAL in the energy range from threshold to $\sqrt{s}=1.85 GeV$.


EPJa: N* resonances from KΛ amplitudes in sliced bins in energy

Paper published in The European Physical Journal A - Published 22 December 2017 

N* resonances from K ΛΛ amplitudes in sliced bins in energy

The two reactions $\gamma p \rightarrow K^{+} \Lambda$ and $\pi^{-}p \rightarrow K^{0}\Lambda$ are analyzed to determine the leading photoproduction multipoles and the pion-induced partial wave amplitudes in slices of the invariant mass. The multipoles and the partial-wave amplitudes are simultaneously fitted in a multichannel Laurent+Pietarinen model (L+P model), which determines the poles in the complex energy plane on the second Riemann sheet close to the physical axes. The results from the L+P fit are compared with the results of an energy-dependent fit based on the Bonn-Gatchina (BnGa) approach. The study confirms the existence of several poles due to nucleon resonances in the region at about 1.9 GeV with quantum numbers $J^P=1/2+,3/2+,1/2−,3/2−,5/2−$ .

PRL: Strong evidence for nucleon resonances near 1900 MeV

Paper published in Phys. Rev. Lett. 119, 062004 – Published 11 August 2017

Strong evidence for nucleon resonances near 1900 MeV - A. V. Anisovich, V. Burkert, M. Hadžimehmedović, D. G. Ireland, E. Klempt, V. A. Nikonov, R. Omerović, H. Osmanović, A. V. Sarantsev, J. Stahov, A. Švarc, and U. Thoma 

Data on the reaction $\gamma p \to K^+\Lambda$ from the CLAS experiments are used to derive the leading multipoles, E0+, M1-, E1+, and M1+, from the production threshold to 2180\,MeV in 24 slices of the invariant mass. The four multipoles are determined without any constraints. The multipoles are fitted using a multichannel L+P model which allows us to search for singularities and to extract the positions of poles on the complex energy plane in an almost model-independent method. The multipoles are also used as additional constraints in an energy-dependent analysis of a large body of pion and photo-induced reactions within the Bonn-Gatchina (BnGa) partial wave analysis. The study confirms the existence of poles due to nucleon resonances with spin-parity J^P = 1/2^-; 1/2^+, and 3/2^+ in the region at about 1.9\,GeV.
