# Limits for Excited ${{\boldsymbol q}}$ (${{\boldsymbol q}^{*}}$) from Single Production INSPIRE search

These limits are from ${{\mathit e}^{+}}$ ${{\mathit e}^{-}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit q}^{*}}{{\overline{\mathit q}}}$ , ${{\mathit p}}$ ${{\overline{\mathit p}}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit q}^{*}}$ X, or ${{\mathit p}}$ ${{\mathit p}}$ $\rightarrow$ ${{\mathit q}^{*}}$ X and depend on transition magnetic couplings between ${{\mathit q}}$ and ${{\mathit q}^{*}}$. Assumptions about ${{\mathit q}^{*}}$ decay mode are given in the footnotes and comments.
