Abstract

We report measurements of branching ratios for production of a series of two meson final states in {Mathematical expression}p annihilations at rest in liquid hydrogen. We find: {Mathematical expression} These are the first measurements of the channels ηη′ and ωη′ and in almost all the other channels are more precise than previous results. We also obtain, in a more precise fashion, the following ratios of branching ratios:K+K-+π-=0.323±0.013, π0η′/π0η=0.548±0.056, ηη′/ηη=0.31±0.15, ωη′/ωη=0.515±0.040, π0η/π0π0=0.303±0.010, ηη/π0π0=0.232±0.011 and π0ω/ηω=0.377±0.12. The measurements are made for different η and η′ decays, and we thus obtain Γη→3π0η→γγ=0.841±0.034, and {Mathematical expression}.
