General analysis and numerical estimations of polarization observables in the p̅ +p→π0+e++e− reaction in an exclusive experimental setup

The dependence of the differential cross section and polarization observables in the p̅ +p→π0+e++e− reaction on the polarizations of the proton target and antiproton beam (the produced electron may be unpolarized or longitudinally polarized) have been derived in a general form using hadron electromagnetic current conservation and P-parity invariance of the hadron electromagnetic interaction. The analysis was done for the case of an exclusive experimental setup where the produced electron and pion are detected in coincidence. The explicit dependence of all polarization observables on two, from five, kinematic variables (the azimuthal angle ϕ and the virtual-photon parameter ε) have been obtained assuming one-photon exchange. The application to the particular case of a mechanism which contains information on time-like proton form factors in the unphysical region is considered in the Born approximation.
