Production of Σ(1385)± and Ξ(1530)0 in proton-proton collisions at s√= 7 TeV
Karasu Uysal, Ayben; ALICE, Collaboration
The production of the strange and double-strange baryon resonances (Σ(1385)±, Ξ(1530)0) has been measured at mid-rapidity (|y|<0.5) in proton-proton collisions at s√ = 7 TeV with the ALICE detector at the LHC. Transverse momentum spectra for inelastic collisions are compared to QCD-inspired models, which in general underpredict the data. A search for the ϕ(1860) pentaquark, decaying in the Ξπ channel, has been carried out but no evidence is seen.
