Abstract [en]

The cross sections for the charmonium production processes p+pbar->m+psi, where m is a light meson and psi is a charmonium state, are of great interest for the planned p+pbar experiment PANDA. In this paper we estimate these cross sections using known results for the decays psi->m+p+pbar, which are related to these reactions by crossing. In lieu of detailed experimental data on the decay Dalitz plots, we assume a constant amplitude as a first approximation; this implies a simple relation between the cross sections and decay widths. The single measured exclusive cross section of this type is p+pbar->pi0+Jpsi, which was reported by E760 to be 130+-25 pb near sqrt(s)=3.5-3.6 GeV. In comparison, our constant amplitude estimate is about 300 pb at this energy. This suggests that our approach is useful as a simple estimate, but should be refined through detailed modeling of resonances and other energy-dependent effects in the experimental psi->m+p+pbar Dalitz plots.
