Abstract

We calculate the partonic cross sections for the hadroproduction of polarized (Formula presented) mesons using the factorization formalism of nonrelativistic QCD. We also describe how the polarization is passed on to the (Formula presented) mesons in the radiative feed-down (Formula presented) and in the double-cascade decays of (Formula presented) mesons via (Formula presented) intermediate states. These represent the missing ingredients needed to predict the polarization of prompt (Formula presented) mesons at the Fermilab Tevatron.
