We present a theoretical analysis of the and decays. We construct a general angular distribution which can include arbitrary partial waves of . Retaining the S-wave and P-wave contributions we study the branching ratios, forward–backward asymmetries and a few other observables. The P-wave contribution is dominated by resonance, and the S-wave contribution is analyzed using the unitarized chiral perturbation theory. The obtained branching fraction for , at the order , is consistent with the available experimental data. The S-wave contribution has a branching ratio at the order of , and this prediction can be tested by experiments like BESIII and LHCb. Future measurements can also be used to examine the – scattering phase shift.
