Multi-Body Phenomena in Strong Interactions

  • M. Jacob
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (volume 4)


A survey of research at the CERN Intersecting Storage Rings during the last year, this paper deals with five main topics: Elastic Scattering and Total Cross-Sections, Scaling and the Approach to Scaling, Diffraction Excitation, Two-Body Correlations and finally, Large Transverse Momentum Phenomena. Experimental results are only briefly presented. They are discussed from a theoretical point of view, with emphasis on the information they give, the questions they raise and the type of further experiments which they suggest.

The presentation tries to be self-contained. This paper, however, does not go into technical points and does not describe detailed model calculations. They are only referred to.

    Experiments at ISR have been so far performed with coasting beams of 11, 15, 22, 26 and 31 GeV/c, respectively. The highest energy requires acceleration in the storage rings proper. These beam energies span a range extending from 250 to 2000 GeV, when expressed in terms of stationary target experimentation. It will be referred throughout as the ISR energy range. Beam-beam collisions with beams of different momenta allow to reach intermediate centre-of-mass energies.Google Scholar

    At present the luminosity reaches the value L = 4.4x1030cm-2 sec-1. It is obtained with coasting beams of 11–12 A each. The interaction rate of a reaction is obtained multiplying the luminosity by the cross-section. With a total cross-section of 40 mb we obtain about 2x105 event/sec and correspon¬dingly about 2x106 charged secondary particles/sec on each intersection.Google Scholar

    Lepton physics at the ISR (single electron or muon distributions probing for W, or dilepton search probing for heavy photon and more generally for any weak interaction effect) has so far met with negative results only. Improvements in machine luminosity, detector solid angle and efficiency should eventual¬ly allow for a much more detailed search than so far possible. In any case, this review limits itself to hadronic phenomena only.Google Scholar

    This corresponds to an isotropic decay of the cluster, with associated multiplicity increasing linearly with the cluster mass M (fixed and#x003C;pTand#x003E;). However, if one associates the cluster with the decay products of an excited hadron, this primary state should generally be produced in an aligned configuration with high spin (high mass) and low helicity. The corresponding secondaries should then show an asymmetry resulting from an¬gular momentum conservation with and#x003C;pLand#x003E; and#x003E; and#x003C;pTand#x003E; when both are measured in the cluster rest frame. The rapidity domain on which the decay products are expected to scatter will there¬fore increase with increasing mass. As a result, the associa¬ted multiplicity will increase more slowly than linearly with M at large M. Our choice of two units for the minimal cluster size is therefore a very conservative one. It maximizes the secondary density.Google Scholar

    This minimum is very different in nature from those observed at typical PS energies in Grp or K-p scattering and which are associated with the interference of secondary Regge tra¬jectory exchange. In pp (and Op) scattering, a featureless diffractive peak should develop a minimum with increasing energy, whereas in 7-p (and K-p) scattering the clear minimum at t=-0.6 seen as PS energy should first gradually disappear, while a diffraction minimum at higher It! would appear.Google Scholar

    A behaviour of the type imposed by a fixed pole and its shiel¬ding cut deviced in order to avoid the Gribov paradox would also give a rising cross-section (for a while) and a slope parameter approaching a constant. The question of fixed pole has been discussed by R. Oehme.Google Scholar

    A leading Pomeranchon trajectory with intercept one gives constant cross-section asymptotically. Scaling cannot there¬fore be considered as a priori more reliable than the appro¬ximation of a constant cross-section which remains a good approximation (10%) on a tremendous energy range 20–2000 GeV ! It is the more so impressive that most partial cross-sections for exclusive channels show strong variations with energy. f/a could still reach a limiting value but there is at pre¬sent no compelling theoretical reasons for it if a rises. The behaviour of multiplicity distributions will not be discussed here. See Refs 17), 18) and 19) and in particularGoogle Scholar

    An isolated pole at 3=1 is only an approximation. One may well try to test scaling or factorization to better than 10% but one should not be surprised if they fail at such an accuracy level. A 10% accuracy over such a wide energy range remains impressive.Google Scholar

    A fragmentation model in its most simple form, namely isotro¬pic decay of excited hadronic states with constant production cross-section is now certainly incorrect. It does not mean though that it cannot be used to parametrize reasonably well important effects and thus achieve some predictive value. To the extent that its including leading particle effects gives a good description of the initial rise of higher multiplicity cross-sections with increasing energy and to the extent that their eventual decrease is not obvious experimentally until one reaches at least 100 GeV, it could thus be used at predic¬ting (see Refs. 43) and 50)) correctly the rise of the inclu¬sive distribution at x=0 (almost a factor 2 from PS to NAL energies) and the widening of the multiplicity distribution (important rise of f2 from PS to NAL energies). The corres¬ponding approximations can a posteriori be introduced in a multiperipheral calculation which, provided it also includes some clustering among slow centre-of-mass secondaries, is certainly more amenable to the description of the observed effects at ISR energies. However, as stressed in Ref. 50), a rapidity interval of 4, as available at PS energy is not enough to see anything but simple fragmentation at the single and even two particle level.Google Scholar

    For any particular excitation mass, one thus minimizes momen¬tum transfer and maximizes the rapidity gap between the quasi-elastically scattered proton and the remainder secondaries. This enforces the Pomeranchon exchange approximation (diffrac¬tion) in the production amplitude.Google Scholar

    For obvious geometrical reasons such distributions could not yet be obtained at very low It or pT, when it would be extremely interesting to have the corresponding data. Experi¬mentation with unequal momenta should help (CHLM) with present angular limitations.Google Scholar

    Such a statement should be supported by a better resolution. It is very important to know whether those resonances which are diffractively produced at PS energies are still produced with similar cross-sections at ISR energies. The first N# are all dumped into the first bin in Fig. 13a. Study of exclusive channels in the SFM will be very interesting (CHOV and Prince¬ton-Pavia).Google Scholar

    This is done for one further, temporary reason. Observing charged secondaries, it is still difficult to separate actual pions from the electrons which they knock off the walls. This increases the single aprticle yield by a spurious factor which should cancel out, however, to a large extent, in (5.3). The observed secondaries are far apart enough so that one may consider globally each pion with its “associated” electrons, without being fooled by pion-electron correlations (cross talk between counters).Google Scholar

    One should not undermine the fact that at present the best reliable correlation data show an increase of the single par¬ticle yield (inclusive distribution) which is much more than what is reported by experiments using spectrometers (BS and SS). As already discussed, the observed multiplicity is pro¬bably too high. However, such effects disappear to a large extent when one calculates R. Focusing on R, discrepancies notwithstanding, is probably the correct attitude to follow and this is what is done here anyway. Nevertheless, one cannot consider the situation as satisfactorily settled before correlations are measured in experiments which fully agree with single arm spectrometer results. The same remark applies to the data shown in Fig. 21b. The magnificent sca¬ling seen in the central region should be considered keeping in mind the much different behaviour found in the typical fragmentation region. As illustrated by Fig. 19, limiting fragmentation should be a reliable picture and a simple relation among the distributions should be found.Google Scholar

    One should keep in mind that, within the same approximation, ael vanishes asymptotically.Google Scholar

    Such a behaviour is quite compatible with the data shown in Fig. 21. However, as discussed in Section 5d, one should not already conclude that an expected Regge behaviour has been found. The Mueller formalism is indeed not very well suited to small Ay where the approximation of a leading secondary trajectory disappears. See Ref. 72).Google Scholar

    In a multiexchange model, this would correspond to a large rapidity gap (lyC-y0l » 1), hence to a good Reggeon exchange approximation. We may therefore consider this as a dual effect.Google Scholar

    The pl. correlation at small x appears to be particularly strong. Even though the proton yield is small, pr correlations may not be negligible among charged-charged correlations at wide angle. There is a great interest in the study of those cases where the proton is produced with x=0 and in particular since the pp ratio is still 2. Results from the SFM, the SS double arm spectrometer and NAL should be interesting in that respect. In words, it would be important to know how a nucleon can be practically “brought to rest” in an ISR collision.Google Scholar

    Correlation results such as those seen in Fig. 21 are then interpreted as the sum of two terms. One distinguishes a flat top contribution (at the 30% level, say) corresponding to long-range effects and extending over the rapidity plateau (about 4 units across) and a slightly narrower short-range effect (2 to 3 units across) which is associated with the clustering among pions proper. One may then not yet attach too much importance to the actual shape of R even though it matches what is predicted in the Mueller formalism which would asymptotically include short-range effects only. With increasing energy, one may expect short-range and long-range effects to show different specific width (a 3 unit width spike on a flat plateau, say). It is an amusing feature that ISR energies are such that the two effects match so well to each other. See also Ref. 72). As stressed in Ref. 79), separating the two effects requires a model calculation. Which belongs to which exactly is still an open question.Google Scholar

    It is even remarkable that the pT distribution varies so weakly even as one goes from fragmentation pions to pioni¬zation pions or as one considers it for different multipli¬cities. The proton pT distribution could a priori show a stronger variation, slowly increasing with multiplicity at any given energy.Google Scholar

    See Refs. 18) and 19) (CCR). With an increase in luminosity which can be rightfully expected or (and) an increase in detection efficiency (large solid angle detector) lepton search should be eventually successful. The question of neutral currents gives an extraordinary interest to lepton pair search.Google Scholar

    The lack of scaling of the large transverse momentum Tr° distribution reported by the CCR Collaboration at the Batavia Conference would exaggerate somewhat the actual effect. As discussed in Ref. 99), the trigger then used in this experi¬ment cannot be considered as actually inclusive. Requiring fast particles on both sides is a bias against events with large transverse momentum secondaries and the more so the lower the energy is. The SS Collaobration (Fig. 24b) used no extra trigger since its set-up was much less sensitive to background beam gas collisions.Google Scholar

    The low pT component would be due to outer meson cloud effects (this of course includes resonance formation and multi-Reggeon exchange), while the large pT component would correspond to the inner (practically pointlike) structure apparently present within the proton. As already stressed there is, however, no clear cut separation between two compo¬nents.Google Scholar

    We already emphasized the importance of threshold effects which should be mixed up with more interesting (partonlike) dynamical effects. This should be kept in mind when analyzing data in terms of a specific S dependence at fixed pT in order to determine n in (6.7). At present, one should probably put more weight on qualitative effect (charge effect, particle ratio, associated multiplicity) rather than on a specific fit to the inclusive distribution.Google Scholar

    At least two new experiments will use a large pTy as a trigger. The associated multiplicity will first be analyzed in the streamer chamber (CERN-Munich) and next in the split field magnet. A detailed picture should then be obtained through these “second generation” experiments. At the same time, observation of the large pT inclusive distribution at NAL, and later on, some detailed analysis of the correspon¬ding final states, will be very interesting.Google Scholar

    Separating arbitrarily as a “jet”, particles of similar rapi¬dities with 0.6 and#x003C; pT and#x003C; 6 GeV/c, say, one may expect a typical 0.4 GeV/c transverse momentum spread measured with respect to the mean jet direction. This gives a rather wide opening angle. A small aperture detector would therefore be too selective or too sensitive to large pT secondaries with simi¬lar momenta only. This may be a relative minority within the jetGoogle Scholar
