Rho meson decay

  1. Feb 2, 2013 #1
    Can the rho(0) meson decay to a pion(0)+gamma ray? If so, which, between this decay and the decay to pion(+) + pion(-) dominates? I know decay modes will dominate as a result of the relative strength of fundamental forces involved, so what are the forces and their relative strengths in this case?
    Thanks!

    A good place to start for decay modes is http://pdg.lbl.gov
