Abstract

NOTE: Text or symbols not renderable in plain ASCII are indicated by [...]. Abstract is included in .pdf document.

The matrix element for the interaction W + N [...] + N is studied, where W is a virtual intermediate boson for the weak interactions (or just the weak current). Weak pion production - production of a pion by high energy neutrino collisions with nucleons, and intermediate boson production by pions are governed by this matrix element. The main case of interest is in the energy region where the pion-nucleon 3-3 resonance is dominant. Formulae are derived for solving the problem in this region.
