Stress tensor and the 2_ mesons

It is suggested that the recently discovered 2+ particles have the stress tensorθ μν and its octet generalizationθ μν i as their sources. Consequences of this hypothesis are examined.

Тензор напряжения и 2+ мезоны


Предполагается, что недавно открытые 2+ частицы имеют тензор напряженияθ μν и его октетные обобщенияθ μν i как их источники. Исследуются следствия этой гипотезы.


Si suggerisce che le particelle 2+ scoperte di recente abbiano il tensore di sforzoθ μν e la sua generalizzazione di ottettoθ μν i come loro sorgenti. Si esaminano le conseguenze di questa ipotesi.

    These operators will contain spin matrices and will also include possible Schwinger terms. The precise form of ΓR depends on the interaction Lagrangian and is exhibited in eq. (15) for a quark model. Schwinger terms have been shown to be present in certain [θ, θ] commutators byG. Boulware andS. Deser (Journ. Math. Phys., to be published).Google Scholar

    The Green's function method in the Appendix gives additional nucleon pole contribution on the right side of (11), which come about because all particles are treated off the mass shell. This ambiguity is discussed further in the Appendix.Google Scholar

It is conceivable that a Reggeization of the 2+ particles using the method ofM. Gell-Mann, M. L. Goldberger, F. Low, E. Marx andF. Zachariasen:Phys. Rev.,133, B 145 (1964) could demonstrate that ∂μ θ μνi provide the field-theoretic characterization of the Pomeranchukon.ADSCrossRefGoogle Scholar
