Axial resonances a1(1260), b1(1235) and their decays from the latticeJan 09 2014May 05 2014The light axial-vector resonances $a_1(1260)$ and $b_1(1235)$ are explored in Nf=2 lattice QCD by simulating the corresponding scattering channels $\rho\pi$ and $\omega\pi$. Interpolating fields $\bar{q} q$ and $\rho\pi$ or $\omega\pi$ are used to extract ... More

K pi scattering in moving framesOct 18 2013We extend our study of the $K\pi$ system to moving frames and present an exploratory extraction of the masses and widths for the $K^*$ resonances by simulating $K\pi$ scattering in p-wave with $I=1/2$ on the lattice. Using $K\pi$ systems with non-vanishing ... More

K pi scattering for isospin 1/2 and 3/2 in lattice QCDJul 13 2012Sep 24 2012We simulate K pi scattering in s-wave and p-wave for both isospins I=1/2, 3/2 using quark-antiquark and meson-meson interpolating fields. We extract the elastic phase shifts delta at several values of the K-pi relative momenta. The resulting phases exhibit ... More

Vector and scalar charmonium resonances with lattice QCDMar 18 2015Sep 14 2015We perform an exploratory lattice QCD simulation of $D \bar D$ scattering, aimed at determining the masses as well as the decay widths of charmonium resonances above open charm threshold. Neglecting coupling to other channels, the resulting phase shift ... More

Charm-Production in e^+e^- Annihilation Around 4 GeVSep 30 2007Using the CLEO-c detector at the Cornell Electron Storage Ring, we have measured inclusive and exclusive cross sections for the production of $D^+$, $D^0$ and $D_s^+$ mesons in $e^{+}e^{-}$ annihilations at thirteen center-of-mass energies between 3.97 ...
