Abstract

We study the process e+e-→π+π-π+π-γ, with a photon emitted from the initial-state electron or positron, using 454.3fb-1 of data collected with the BABAR detector at SLAC, corresponding to approximately 260000 signal events. We use these data to extract the nonradiative σ(e+e-→π+π-π+π-) cross section in the energy range from 0.6 to 4.5 GeV. The total uncertainty of the cross section measurement in the peak region is less than 3%, higher in precision than the corresponding results obtained from energy scan data. © 2012 American Physical Society.
