Abstract [en]

The ratio Rη=Γ(η→π+π-γ)/Γ(η→π+π-π0) has been measured by analysing 22 million φ→ηγ decays collected by the KLOE experiment at DAΦNE, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 558 pb-1. The η→π+π-γ proceeds both via the ρ resonant contribution, and possibly a non-resonant direct term, connected to the box anomaly. Our result, Rη=0.1856±0.0005stat±0.0028syst, points out a sizable contribution of the direct term to the total width. The di-pion invariant mass for the η→π+π-γ decay could be described in a model-independent approach in terms of a single free parameter, α. The determined value of the parameter α is α=(1.32±0.08stat-0.09syst+0.10±0.02theo) GeV-2.
