First page: 103001 Abstract: A maximum likelihood method is used to deal with the combined estimation of multi-measurements of a
branching ratio, where each result can be presented as an upper limit. The joint likelihood function
is constructed using observed spectra of all measurements and the combined estimate of the branching
ratio is obtained by maximizing the joint likelihood function. The Bayesian credible interval or
upper limit of the combined branching ratio, is given in cases both with and without inclusion of
systematic error. Citation: Chinese Physics C PubDate: 2015-10-14T23:00:00Z Issue No:Vol. 39, No. 10 (2015)

Authors:Chen Long-Bin; Jiang Jun Qiao Cong-Feng First page: 103101 Abstract: We calculate the next-to-leading order (NLO) quantum chromodynamics (QCD) corrections to double
charmonium production processes e + e − → γ* → η c +h c (1 P )/ψ 1,2 (1 D ) within the
non-relativistic QCD (NRQCD) factorization framework. We find that the corrections to η c +h c (1 P
) production are positive, while those to η c +ψ 1,2 (1 D ) are negative. Unlike the J/ψ+η c case,
all the corrections here are not large. Uncertainties in the renormalization scale, quark mass and
running energy of center-of-mass are discussed, and the scale dependence of these processes is found
to be greatly reduced with the NLO QCD corrections. Citation: Chinese Physics C PubDate: 2015-10-14T23:00:00Z Issue No:Vol. 39, No. 10 (2015)

Authors:Bai Nan; Chen Hui-Huang Wu Jun-Bao First page: 103102 Abstract: In this paper, a minimal surface in q -deformed AdS 5 × S 5 with a cusp boundary is studied in
detail. This minimal surface is dual to a cusped Wilson loop in dual field theory. We find that the
area of the minimal surface has both logarithmic squared divergence and logarithmic divergence. The
logarithmic squared divergence cannot be removed by either Legendre transformation or the usual
geometric subtraction. We further make an analytic continuation to the Minkowski signature, taking
the limit such that the two edges of the cusp become light-like, and extract the anomalous dimension
from the coefficient of the logarithmic divergence. This anomalous dimension goes back smoothly to
the results in the undeformed case when we take the limit that the deformation parameter goes to
zero. Citation: Chinese Physics C PubDate: 2015-10-14T23:00:00Z Issue No:Vol. 39, No. 10 (2015)

conducted at the HIRFL-CSR facility in Lanzhou by employing the Isochronous Mass Spectrometry (IMS)
method. The new mass excesses of 52–54 Sc nuclides are determined to be −40492(82), −38928(114),
−34654(540) keV, which show a significant increase of binding energy compared to the reported ones
in the Atomic Mass Evaluation 2012 (AME12). In particular, 53 Sc and 54 Sc are more bound by 0.8 MeV
and 1.0 MeV, respectively. The behavior of the two neutron separation energy with neutron numbers
indicates a strong sub-shell closure at neutron number N =32 in Sc isotopes. Citation: Chinese Physics C PubDate: 2015-10-14T23:00:00Z Issue No:Vol. 39, No. 10 (2015)

Authors:Zhang Zhi; Ma Tian-Li Zhang Dong-Hai First page: 104002 Abstract: The multiplicity distribution, multiplicity moment, scaled variance, entropy and reduced entropy of
target evaporated fragments emitted in forward and backward hemispheres in 12 A GeV 4 He, 3.7 A GeV
16 O, 60 A GeV 16 O, 1.7 A GeV 84 Kr and 10.7 A GeV 197 Au -induced emulsion heavy target (AgBr)
interactions are investigated. It is found that the multiplicity distribution of target evaporated
fragments emitted in both forward and backward hemispheres can be fitted by a Gaussian distribution.
The multiplicity moments of target evaporated particles emitted in the forward and backward
hemispheres increase with the order of the moment q , and the second-order multiplicity moment is
energy independent over the entire energy range for all the interactions in the forward and backward
hemisphere. The scaled variance, a direct measure of multiplicity fluctuations, is close to one for
all the interac... Citation: Chinese Physics C PubDate: 2015-10-14T23:00:00Z Issue No:Vol. 39, No. 10 (2015)

After discussing the probability that the nuclear system may be a fractal object with the
characteristic of self-similarity, the irregular nuclear structure properties and the
self-similarity characteristic are considered to be an intrinsic aspect of the nuclear structure
properties. For the description of nuclear geometric properties, the nuclear fractal dimension is an
irreplaceable variable similar to the nuclear radius. In order to determine these two variables, a
new nuclear potential energy formula which is related to the fractal dimension is put forward and
the phenomenological semiempirical Bethe–Weizsäcker binding energy formula is modified using the
fractal geometric theory. One important equation set with two equations is obtained, which is
related to the concept that the fractal dimension should be a dynamic parameter in the process of
nuclear synthesis. The fractal di... Citation: Chinese Physics C PubDate: 2015-10-14T23:00:00Z Issue No:Vol. 39, No. 10 (2015)

Authors:Cheng Ming-Jian; Liu Lang Zhang Yi-Xin First page: 104102 Abstract: Within the relativistic mean field (RMF) theory, the ground state properties of dysprosium isotopes
are studied using the shell-model-like approach (SLAP), in which pairing correlations are treated
with particle-number conservation, and the Pauli blocking effects are taken into account exactly.
For comparison, calculations of the Bardeen–Cooper–Schrieffer (BCS) model with the RMF are also
performed. It is found that the RMF+SLAP calculation results, as well as the RMF+BCS ones, reproduce
the experimental binding energies and one- and two-neutron separation energies quite well. However,
the RMF+BCS calculations give larger pairing energies than those obtained by the RMF+SLAP
calculations, in particular for nuclei near the proton and neutron drip lines. This deviation is
discussed in terms of the BCS particle-number fluctuation, which leads to the sizable deviation of
pairing energies between the RMF+BCS and RMF+SLAP models, where the fluctuation of the particle
number is eliminate... Citation: Chinese Physics C PubDate: 2015-10-14T23:00:00Z Issue No:Vol. 39, No. 10 (2015)

Authors:Zhang Yu; Guan Xin, Wang Yin, Zuo Yan, Bao Li-Na Pan Feng First page: 104103 Abstract: Some binding energy related quantities serving as effective order parameters have been used to
analyze the shape phase transition in the odd Sm nuclei. It is found that the signals of phase
transition in the odd Sm nuclei are greatly enhanced in contrast to the even Sm nuclei. A further
analysis shows that the transitional behaviors related to pairing in the Sm nuclei can be well
described by the mean field plus pairing interaction model, with a monotonic decrease in the pairing
strength G. Citation: Chinese Physics C PubDate: 2015-10-14T23:00:00Z Issue No:Vol. 39, No. 10 (2015)
