Chiral perturbation theory in the meson sector

Author

  • Johan Bijnens

Summary, in English

The present status of Chiral Perturbation Theory in the meson sector is discussed concentrating on recent developments. This write-up contains short discussions on a listing of a few historical papers, the principles behind ChPT, two-flavour ChPT including some comments about the Pion polarizability, three-flavour ChPT with a discussion of the recently found relations as tests of ChPT and preliminary results of a new fit of the NLO low-energy-constants (LECs). It discusses somewhat deeper η → 3π and the arguments for the existence of a “hard Pion ChPT” and its application to K → 2π.
