Scalar-meson candidates for tadpoles


Journal Article

It is proposed that members of a recently observed scalar octet with particle masses around 1 GeV could play the role of tadpoles. If the anomalous branching ratio of 2πK̄K of the isosinglet member of the octet is accounted for by SU3 violation, the resulting octet-dominance-violating contribution to the mass formula very much improves the Gell-Mann-Okubo mass relations for pseudoscalar mesons. © 1968 The American Physical Society.
