K to pi pi decays in SU(2) Chiral Perturbation Theory

Author

Summary, in English

We study the decays $K\to\pi\pi$ in one-loop

two-flavour Chiral Perturbation Theory.

We provide arguments why the calculation of the coefficient of the

pionic chiral logarithm

$\logm = M^2\log M^2$

is unique and then perform the calculation. As a check we perform the

reduction of the known three-flavour result.

Our result can be used to perform the extrapolation to the physical

pion mass of direct lattice QCD calculations of $K\to\pi\pi$

at fixed $m_s$ or $m_K^2$.

The underlying arguments

are expected to be valid for heavier particles and other processes as well.
