Effective theory approach to unstable particle production.

Beneke, M. and Chapovsky, A. P. and Signer, A. and Zanderighi, G. (2004) 'Effective theory approach to unstable particle production.', Physical review letters., 93 . 011602.

Abstract

Using the hierarchy of scales between the mass M and the width Gamma of a heavy, unstable particle, we construct an effective theory that allows calculations for resonant processes to be systematically expanded in powers of the coupling alpha and Gamma/M. We illustrate the method by computing the next-to-leading order line shape of a scalar resonance in an Abelian gauge-Yukawa model.
