And Prof Hagen, who is affiliated to the University of Rochester, New York, suggested that it be called the Standard Model Scalar Meson, or SM Squared.
Further, we have checked that the potential of [M.sup.0][M.sup.0] and [[bar.M].sup.0][[bar.M].sup.0] interactions is attractive (U < 0) for the case of scalar meson exchange and repulsive for the case of vector meson exchange.

We insert the complete sets of appropriate vector meson (|V><V|) and scalar meson (|S><S|) states (regarding the conservation of the quantum numbers of corresponding interpolating currents) inside correlation functions equation (1).
where p' and [epsilon]' are the momentum and polarization of final state vector meson, that is, either J/[psi] or Y mesons, [epsilon] is the polarization of real photon, and p is the momentum of initial scalar meson.
Similarly, we can also write the scattering T matrix corresponding to [D.sub.0]N ([D.sub.0] is a scalar meson) in terms of the scattering lengths [23],
For the scalar meson, [D.sub.0], the Borel transformation equation is written as [23]
