Reaction pp -> pp pi pi pi as a background for hadronic decays of the eta ' meson

Abstract [en]

Isospin violating hadronic decays of the eta and eta ' mesons into 3 pi mesons are driven by a term in the QCD Lagrangian proportional to the mass difference of the d and u quarks. The source giving large yield of the mesons for such decay studies are pp interactions close to the respective kinematical thresholds. The most important physics background for eta, eta ' -> pi pi pi is coming from direct three-pion production reactions. In case of the eta meson the background for the decays is relatively low (approximate to 10%). The purpose of this article is to provide an estimate of the direct pion production background for the eta ' -> 3 pi decays. Using the inclusive data from the COSY-11 experiment we have extracted the differential cross-section for the pp -> pp-multipion production reactions with the invariant mass of the pions equal to the eta ' meson mass and estimated an upper limit for the signal to background ratio for studies of the eta ' -> pi(+)pi(-)pi(0)decay.
