A model for A = 3 antinuclei production in proton-nucleus collisions

Abstract.

A simple coalescence model based on the same diagrammatic approach of antimatter production in hadronic collisions as used previously for antideuterons is used here for the hadroproduction of mass-3 antinuclei. It is shown that the model is able to reproduce the existing experimental data on the \(\overline{t}\) and \(\overline{^3\mbox{He}}\) production without any additional parameter.
