Why can the omega meson not decay to 3 neutral pions?

  1. May 29, 2015 #1
    What reasons prevent the decay

    $\omega \rightarrow \pi^0 \pi^0 \pi^0$

    from happening?

    There are not many things to check if you want to know which decay is possible.

    The http://pdg8.lbl.gov/rpp2014v1/pdgLive/Particle.action?node=M001#decayclump_A [Broken] has the answer.

    You can use LaTeX with double # or double $:
    ##\omega## -> ##\omega##
    $$\omega$$ ->$$\omega$$

    ##\omega## is C-odd
