Abstract [en]

The world's largest sample of J/psi) events, 1.31 billion events accumulated at the BESIII detector, provides a unique opportunity to investigate eta and eta' physics via two-body J/psi radiative or hadronic decays. For many eta' decay channels the low background data samples are up to three orders of magnitude larger than collected in any previous experiment. Here we review the most significant results on eta and eta' obtained at BESIII so far. The analyses range from detailed studies of common decay dynamics, observations of new radiative and Dalitz decays, and searches for rare/forbidden decays with sensitivity up to B similar to 10(-5). Finally, prospects of forthcoming runs at the J/psi peak for eta and eta' physics are discussed.

Abstract [en]

The three precision measurements of the cross section sigma (e(+)e(-) -> pi(+)pi(-)gamma(gamma)) using initial state radiation by the KLOE collaboration provide an important input for the prediction of the hadronic contribution to the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon. These measurements are correlated for both statistical and systematic uncertainties and, therefore, the simultaneous use of these measurements requires covariance matrices that fully describe the correlations. We present the construction of these covariance matrices and use them to determine a combined KLOE measurement for sigma (e(+)e(-) -> pi(+)pi(-)gamma(gamma)). We find, from this combination, a two-pion contribution to the muon magnetic anomaly in the energy range 0.10 < s < 0.95 GeV2 of a(mu)(pi+pi-) (489.8 +/- 1.7(stat) +/- 4.8(sys)) x 10(-10).

Abstract [en]

The numbers of psi(3686) events accumulated by the BESIII detector for the data taken during 2009 and 2012 are determined to be (107.0 +/- 0.8)x10(6) and (341.1 +/- 2.1)x10(6), respectively, by counting inclusive hadronic events, where the uncertainties are systematic and the statistical uncertainties are negligible. The number of events for the sample taken in 2009 is consistent with that of the previous measurement. The total number of psi(3686) events for the two data taking periods is (448.1 +/- 2.9) x 10(6).

Abstract [en]

This letter reports a first quantitative analysis of the contribution of higher partial waves in the charge symmetry breaking reaction dd -> He-4 pi(0) using the WASA-at-COSY detector setup at an excess energy of Q = 60 MeV. The determined differential cross section can be parametrized as d sigma/d Omega = a + b cos(2) theta*, where theta* is the production angle of the pion in the center-of-mass coordinate system, and the results for the parameters are a = (1.55 +/- 0.46(stat)(-0.8)(+0.32)(syst)) pb/sr and b = (13.1 +/- 2.1(stat)(-2.7)(+1.0)(syst)) pb/sr. The data are compatible with vanishing p-waves and a sizable d-wave contribution. This finding should strongly constrain the contribution of the A isobar to the dd -> He-4 pi(0) reaction and is, therefore, crucial for a quantitative understanding of quark mass effects in nuclear production reactions.

Abstract [en]

Using a data sample of (448.1 +/- 2.9) x 10(6) psi (3686) events collected with the BESIII detector at the BEPCII collider, we present measurements of branching fractions for the decays X-cJ -> Sigma(+) (Sigma) over bar (-) and Sigma(0) (Sigma) over bar (0) The decays X-c1.2 -> Sigma(+) (Sigma) over bar (-) and Sigma (Sigma) over bar (0) are observed for the first time, and the branching fractions for X-c0 -> Sigma(+) (Sigma) over bar (-) and Sigma(0) (Sigma) over bar (0) decays are measured with improved precision. The branching fraction ratios between the charged and neutral modes are consistent with the prediction of isospin symmetry.

Abstract [en]

We investigate the process e(+)e(-) -> K (K) over barJ/psi at center-of-mass energies from 4.189 to 4.600 GeV using 4.7 fb(-1) of data collected by the BESIII detector at the BEPCII collider. The Born cross sections for the reactions e(+)e(-) -> K(+)K(-)J/psi and K(S)(0)K(S)(0)J/psi are measured as a function of center-of-mass energy. The energy dependence of the cross section for e(+)e(-) -> K(+)K(-)J/psi is shown to differ from that for pi(+)pi(-)J/psi in the region around the Y(4260). In addition, there is evidence for a structure around 4.5 GeV in the e(+)e(-) -> K(+)K(-)J/psi cross section that is not present in pi(+)pi(-)J/psi.
