Uzbek scientists discovered a new resonance particle

TASHKENT, March 11. /Dunyo IA/. A group of Uzbek scientists-physicists, under scientific supervision of Academician of the Academy of Sciences of Uzbekistan Bekhzod Yuldashev, have shown experimentally for the first time the existence of a new elementary particle, reports “Dunyo” IA correspondent.

The new resonance particle has been discovered in the eight-quark system, consisting of two protons and a pi-meson, as a result of analysis of experimental data on collisions of carbon nuclei with incident energy of 3.4 GeV per nucleon with carbon nuclei at rest.

Themassofthisshort-livedparticlehasbeenfoundtobe2118 ± 1 MeV/c2, and its life-time has proved to be relatively long with respect to the time of strong interactions (the width of the new resonance does not exceed4 MeV/c2).

The experimental excess of the number of events due to the observed structure over the background distribution proved to be 122±20 events or 4.5 standard deviations (sigma).

The results about discovery of the new resonance particle have been published in the prestigious scientific journal International Journal Of Modern Physics E (Nuclear Physics)of the famous World Scientific publishing company, indexed in Web of Science and Scopus databases.

Nowadays the authors of the article analyze the experimental data on other nuclear collisions, in which the new particle could also be observed.
