Three-pseudoscalar photon interactions in chiral perturbation theory
Summary, in English
We have calculated the next to leading corrections to the processes γπ- → π0π- and η → π+π-γ in chiral perturbation theory. The loop diagrams are divergent, requiring the contributions from the O(p6) lagrangian. The finite parts of the coefficients of the O(p6) terms are calculated assuming their saturation by the vector meson contribution. These corrections improve the agreement between the theoretical predictions and the experimental data.
