Abstract

The internal conversion process D* --> De(+) e(-), and D*($) over bar D-pair production in e(+) e(-) -collisions, e(+) e(-) --> D*($) over bar D, which are described by the same electromagnetic form factor with time-like momentum transfer, have been analyzed. After carrying out a general analysis of the kinematical aspects of the one-photon mechanism has been performed and the predictions of the vector-dominance model for the D* --> D transition form factor are discussed. It is shown that use of the asymptotic behaviour of the form factors of D*(+,0) --> D(+,0)gamma*-transitions and the theoretical values of constants of D*(+,0) --> D(+,0)gamma radiative decay enables one to determine part of the unknown parameters of these form factors. The coefficient of the internal conversion for D* --> De(+) e(-) is calculated and is shown to be model independent.
