Electromagnetic production of pseudoscalar mesons

Tom Vrancx (2014)
abstract
More than 99.9% of all of the visible mass in the universe can be attributed to the protons and neutrons in atomic nuclei, collectively called 'nucleons'. Based on the quark masses, the nucleons should be 100 times less massive than is observed experimentally. The odd nature of the strong interaction, which binds the quarks in nucleons, is responsible for this mass deficit. Since the strong interaction cannot be treated perturbatively at low energies, alternate approaches have to be resorted to in order to explain the properties of nucleons such as their mass and resonance spectra. Experiments such as 'electromagnetic production of pseudoscalar mesons' aim at comprehending the internal structure and interactions of nucleons. The phenomenological modeling of these reactions hereby serves as an effective bridge towards more fundamental theoretical models. The 'Regge-plus-resonance' model is a very suitable candidate in this regard, given its unique and efficient internal description. In this dissertation, the following subjects are treated: - consistent interactions of high-spin resonances - the RPR-2011 model for kaon-Lambda photoproduction - the incompleteness of complete measurements in pseudoscalar-meson photoproduction - pion-nucleon electroproduction above the resonance region - kaon-Lambda electroproduction above the resonance region
