Talk Hadron Structure and Meson-Baryon Interaction Working Group Parallel Session 4 - Hadron Structure & Meson-Baryon Interaction WG


Johan Bijnens (Lund University)


The talk will give an overview of the work done recently in calculating leading logarithms to high order and the underlying methods used. The method used [1,2] will be done and an over view of applications which have been done to very high order in the massless case and up to seven loops in the massive case [3,4,5]. The talk will concentrate mainly on the new aspects needed for the nucleon sector where we can also obtain subleading logarithms in some cases. We also present some numerical results [5].
