Description

The NA48/2 experiment has recently published a detailed study of the Ke4 decay mode K —> pi0 pi0 e nu based on 65000 candidates with a low 1% background contamination. The achieved experimental precision brings evidence for isospin breaking mass effects and final state pi pi scattering. Theoretical calculations will have to face a new precision challenge when using such improved inputs to extract for example low energy constants of Chiral Perturbation Theory.
