pseudoscalar meson

[¦sü·dō′skāl·ər ′mā‚sän]
(particle physics)
A meson, such as the pion, which has spin 0 and negative parity, and may be described by a field which is a pseudoscalar quantity. Also known as pseudoscalar particle.

respectively, where [g.sub.S] is an effective strong coupling constant obtained from strong decays, e.g., [rho] [right arrow] [pi][pi], [K.sup.*] [right arrow] K[pi], and [phi] [right arrow] KK, and is set as [g.sub.S] = 4.5 [54] in this work, [mathematical expression not reproducible] and [mathematical expression not reproducible] are the mass and decay constant of the pole resonant pseudoscalar meson [P.sup.*], respectively, [[chi].sup.A.sub.q] and [[phi].sup.A.sub.q] and are the strengths and the strong phases of the corresponding amplitudes.

where [[lambda].sub.+(-)] is the residue of the positive (negative) parity baryon and [g.sub.ij] is the coupling constant of the pseudoscalar meson with heavy baryon.
We consider only normal and strange matter, that is, the baryons and mesons constituted by u, d and s quarks: the baryon octet (spin 1/2 baryons), the baryon decouplet (spin 3/2 baryons), the pseudoscalar meson nonet (spin 0 mesons), and the vector meson nonet (spin 1 mesons), which leaves us with a total of 54 particles (18 baryons, 18 antibaryons, and 18 mesons).
Actually, for each observed V [right arrow] P[gamma] decay (V and P being a vector and a pseudoscalar meson, resp.), there could be a V [right arrow] P[gamma]' process, suppressed by a factor [[epsilon].sup.2] with respect to the former one [9].

In this paper, we have presented one class of such type of pure leptonic and semileptonic decays of pseudoscalar mesons involving di-neutrinos in their final state in the framework of SM and R-parity violating ([[??].sub.p]) supersymmetric (SUSY) model.
The fitted value of [kappa] = 0.59 GeV for pseudoscalar mesons, and [kappa] = 0.54 GeV for vector mesons.
For convenience, we use the covariant form of [mathematical expression not reproducible] for pseudoscalar mesons which is given by
