Lightest Scalar Resonances and the Dynamics of the γγ\toππ ReactionsOct 13 2008The high-statistics Belle data on the \gamma\gamma\to\pi^+\pi^- and \gamma\gamma\to\pi^0\pi^0 reactions have been jointly analyzed. The main dynamical mechanisms of these reactions for energies below 1.5 GeV have been revealed. It has been shown that ... More
Manifestation of the $a^0_0(980)-f_0(980)$ mixing in the reaction $π^-p\toηπ^0n$ on a polarized targetMay 14 2004Oct 15 2004It is argued that the single-spin asymmetry in the reaction $\pi^-p\to a_0^0(980)n\to(\eta\pi^0)_S n$ is extremely sensitive to the mixing of the $a^0_0(980)$ and $f_0(980)$ resonances. It is shown that at low momentum transfers (namely, in any one of ... More
Mechanisms of the $f_0(980)$ production in the reaction $π^-p\toπ^0 π^0n$Jul 24 2001The model of the pure one-pion exchange mechanism, which gives a good description of the GAMS results on the alteration of the $S$-wave $\pi^0\pi^0$ mass spectrum in the $f_0(980)$ region in the reaction $\pi^-p\to\pi^0\pi^0n$ with increasing $-t$, is ...

Description of the ψ(3770) resonance interfering with the backgroundFeb 18 2013Mar 26 2013The parameters of the interfering $\psi(3770)$ resonance should be determined from the data on the reactions $e^+e^-$\,$\to$\,$D\bar D$ with the use of the models satisfying the elastic unitarity requirement. The selection of such models can be realized ... More
f0(980) and a0(980) resonances near γγ\to K^+K^- and γγ\to K^0\bar K^0 reaction thresholdsOct 02 2012High-statistics data on the reactions $\gamma\gamma\to K^+K^-$ and $\gamma\gamma\to K^0\bar K^0$ are the last missing link in investigations of the light scalar mesons $f_0(980)$ and $a_0(980)$ in photon-photon collisions. It is believed that $f_0(980)$ ... More
Light Scalar Mesons in Photon-Photon CollisionsMay 13 2009Sep 02 2011The light scalar mesons, discovered over forty years ago, became a challenge for the naive quark-antiquark model from the outset. At present the nontrivial nature of these states is no longer denied practically anybody. Two-photon physics has made a substantial ... More
