The fragmentation function of ##K^{*0}## particle?

  1. Apr 3, 2015 #1
    Where can I find the fragmentation function (FF) of ##K^{*0}(892)## particle?
    The online FF generator doesn't give the option of ##K^{*0}##

    FF generator: http://lapth.cnrs.fr/ffgenerator/

    Are you sure that the K* has a fragmentation function? I'm pretty sure that, since it is a resonance, it doesn't fragment but simply decay isotropically according to the usual matrix elements. What are you looking for it?

    Oops, sorry for my ambiguity. Actually I mean the quarks fragment into hadrons, i.e. the fragmentation function is ##D^{q\to h}## with ##h = K^{*0}(892)##, and ##q = u,d,s,c,\cdots##.
    For ##h = pion, kaon...##, it is available(given by online FF generator), but what about ##K^{*0}##?
