DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Oscar Cata (LMU Munich)\nAfter the discovery of the
Higgs particle at the LHC in its first run\, one of the priorities of the
second run will be to ascertain its nature and understand the dynamics tha
t trigger the breaking of electroweak symmetry. However\, in order to sear
ch for deviations from a standard Higgs one needs a framework that goes be
yond the Standard Model. In this talk I will discuss in which way techniqu
es borrowed from chiral dynamics can be used to provide such a general fra
mework and will point out which processes are most sensitive to nonstandar
d Higgs signatures.\n\nhttps://agenda.infn.it/event/7897/contributions/706

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Berhan Demissie (George Washington University\, Wash
ington)\nCompton scattering processes are ideal to study electric and magn
etic dipole polarizability coeffcients of nucleons [1]. These fundamental
quantities parametrize the response to a monochromatic photon probe. In th
is work\, the inelastic channel γd → γnp is treated in χEFT\, with a
focus on the NQFP - neutron quasi-free peak - kinematic region. In this re
gion\, the momentum of the outgoing proton is small enough that it is cons
idered to remain at rest. This provides access to the Compton scattering p
rocess γn → γn from which the neutron scalar polarizabilites α and β
are extracted. Using χEFT\, differential cross-sections\, d^3σ/dE_ndΩ
γ Ωn\, in the photon energy range of 200-400 MeV are computed. The bigg
est contribution comes from the impulse approximation\, with small correct
ions stemming from final state interaction\, meson exchange currents and r
escattering. A new extraction of neutron polarizabilities from a two-param
eter fit to the Kossert et al. [2] data taken at MAMI in 2002 is presented
. Previously\, the experiment was designed and the data analysed based on
a theoretical model [3] that computed the NQFP differential cross-sections
. The re-analysis of this data in a consistent\, model independent framewo
rk - χEFT - provides reliable extraction of polarizabilies with controlle
d uncertainties.\n\nThis work is supported in part by the US Department of
Energy under grant DE-FG02-\n95ER-40907.\n\nReferences\n1. H. W. Grießha

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Albert Feijoo (University of Barcelona)\nThe meson-b
aryon interaction in the S=-1 sector is studied by means of a chiral SU(3)
Lagrangian up to next-to-leading order\, implementing unitarization in co
upled channels. The parameters of the Lagrangian have been fitted to a lar
ge set of experimental data in two-body channels. We focused on K- p --> K
Cascade reactions because they show the strongest sensitivity to the next
-to-leading order (NLO) coefficients\, due to the zero tree level contribu
tion of the leading-order terms. As we will see\, the leading order Lagran
gian\, even taking into account the contributions via unitaritzation\, can
not build enough strength to reproduce the experimental data. Thus\, NLO
corrections are absolutely mandatory in the K Cascade production channels.
In order to improve the the description of the total and differential K-
p --> K Cascade cross sections\, and to analyse the accuracy and stabilit
y of the obtained NLO parameters\, phenomenological contributions of massi
ve high spin resonances in K Cascade channels have been introduced and stu
died. The resulting K Cascade interaction has been also applied to study o
f the decay process $Lambda_b -> J/Psi K Xi\, which can be studied by the
LHCb Collaboration\n\nhttps://agenda.infn.it/event/7897/contributions/706

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Lewis Tunstall (University of Bern)\nCurrent limits
from dark matter direct-detection experiments place a powerful constraint
on the parameter space of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM)
. The interpretation of these limits\, however\, depends sensitively on t
he hadronic uncertainties associated with the scattering of supersymmetric
dark matter particles off nucleons. For spin-independent scattering\, we
review the role of chiral perturbation theory in the determination of the
se hadronic uncertainties\, and quantify the amount of isospin violation w
ithin several simplified versions of the MSSM. In each case\, we identify
parameter-space configurations that produce (almost) vanishing cross sect
ions and examine the complementarity of constraints due to direct-detectio
n\, flavour\, and collider experiments. In the vicinity of these so-calle
d blind spots\, we find that isospin violation is much larger than typical
ly expected in the MSSM.\n\nhttps://agenda.infn.it/event/7897/contribution

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Pablo Sanchez Puertas (Johannes Gutenberg University
\, Mainz)\nPseudoscalar-meson decays (π0\, η\, η ) into lepton pairs (e
+e−\, µ+µ−) are unique in its kind as they probe the neutral pseudos
calar meson structure in the whole energy-range. This structure\, which is
encoded in the doubly virtual transition form factor (TFF) governing thei
r interactions with two photons\, needs a complete energy description. In
this work\, we identify the relevant energy regimes related to this proces
ses and propose the use of rational approximants for describing the TFF\,
emphasizing the correct low- energy description and high-energy implementa
tion. Motivated by the range spanned by the pseudoscalar masses\, we will
discuss the use of different rational approximants: Pade' approximants\, w
hich have been successfully used in the past [1\,2]\, its necessary extens
ion to their bivariate version (Canterbury approximants) [3] \, and\, as a
novel approach\, Quadratic approximants [4]\, which are very interesting\
, specially\, for the η case. Finally\, we calculate the branching ratios
for the different processes and estimate the different uncertainties\, hi
ghlighting possible future experiments that may improve our description.\n

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Arseniy Filin (Ruhr University\, Bochum)\nStudy of p
ion production near threshold is interesting for several reasons: it tests
applicability of chiral EFT at intermediate energies\, probes nucleon-nuc
leon dynamics at relatively large transferred momenta\, and gives possibil
ity to study isospin violation in few-body processes. The neutral pion pro
duction in pp → ppπ0 channel has been known to be the most puzzling pro
cess for a long time. The data for near-threshold cross section in this ch
annel is suppressed by more than an order of magnitude compared to charged
pion-production channels. This suppression agrees with conclusions made u
sing chiral EFT\, namely that there is almost no leading order contributio
n to pp → ppπ0 and the higher order effects are expected to be importan
t for quantitative understanding of neutral pion production. We present th
e results for the full pion production operator near threshold calculated
up-to-and-including next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO) in chiral effecti
ve field theory [2\, 3]\, which includes pions\, nucleons and delta degree
s of freedom. Our analysis of chiral loops at NNLO reveals new mechanisms
which are important\, but haven’t been considered in phenomenological st
udies so far. The obtained production operator\, being convolved with nucl
eon-nucleon wave functions derived recently based on chiral EFT [4] is use
d to compute the pion production amplitudes. First results for the observa
bles in NN → NNπ are going to be presented.\n\nReferences\n1. V. Baru\,

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Vadim Baru (Ruhr University\, Bochum)\nThe low-energ
y theorems (LET) for NN scattering are known to provide important relation
s between the coefficients in the effective-range expansion (ERE) of the a
mplitude\, which are governed by the long-range part of the potential\, se
e\, e.g.\, [1\, 2]. Therefore\, as long as the long-range physics is appro
priately included in the calculation\, these relations should yield model
independent predictions for the coefficients in the ERE\, provided some of
these coefficients are known. In particular\, using the NN scattering len
gth in the 3S1 channel as input\, the effective range and the shape parame
ters predicted in Ref. [3] appear to be in a good agreement with those ext
racted from Nijmegen PWA [4]. In this work we extend the LET to the case o
f unphysical pion masses. It is emphasized that correlations provided by L
ET can be used as nontrivial consistency checks for the lattice calculatio
ns. As an example\, we use the m_π dependence of the effective range sugg
ested in the recent lattice study [5] as input to predict the m_π depende
nce of the binding energy and the shape parameters. Further\, we discuss t
he results of chiral extrapolations calculated to NLO using the modified W
einberg formulation of chiral effective field theory.\n\nReferences\n[1] T

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Vladimir Pascalutsa (Johannes Gutenberg University\,
Mainz)\nThe present treatment of the nucleon-nucleon and few-nucleon forc
es in chiral effective theory is semi-relativistic. One of the immediate d
ifficulties of this description is that\, in accordance with Wigner’s ca
usality bound\, the leading-order (zero-range) interaction yields zero eff
ective range. This leads to the necessity of “promoting” the subleadin
g three-body force to leading order\, in the pionless theory. It eventuall
y becomes the major reason for “non-perturbative pions”. I argue that
these difficulties are absent in relativistically causal theory. On a simp
le field-theoretic example [1\,2]\, I demostrate relativistic zero-range p
otential scattering surpasses Wigner’s causality bound without violating
causality [3]. The relativistic theory exhibits a K-matrix pole necessari
ly accompanying the bound-state solution. Possible implications of these r
esults for the effective-field theory of nuclear forces will be discussed\
, time permitting.\n\nReferences\n1. V. Pascalutsa and M. Vanderhaeghen\,

χEFT) with pions\, nucleons\, and the Delta(1232) as explicit degrees of

± 0.2(Baldin) ± 0.3(theory).\nThese were obtained in the heavy-baryon fo

calculation [3]. With the publication this year by Myers et al. of the re
sults of the deuteron Compton scattering experiment using the Tagged-Photo
n Facility at the MAX IV Laboratory in Lund\, Sweden\, the world γ-d data
base has doubled in size\, allowing the extraction of the isoscalar polari
sabilities with unprecedented accuracy\, and combined with the proton resu

)\,\nβ_n = 3.55 ± 1.25(stat) ± 0.2(Baldin) ± 0.8(theory).\nA new gener

Microtron\, with the first results published this year by Martel et al. [
5]. These experiments are sensitive to the spin polarisabilities\, and we
will discuss the predictions of χEFT for the relevant cross sections cros

n symmetry is explicitly broken in the Standard Model by the mass and elec
tric charge of the up and down quarks. These effects represent a perturbat
ion of hadronic amplitudes at the percent level. Although these contributi
ons are small\, they play a crucial role in hadronic and nuclear physics.
Moreover\, as lattice computations are becoming increasingly precise\, it
is becoming more and more important to include these effects in numerical
simulations. We summarize here how to properly define QCD and QED on a fin
ite and discrete space-time so that isospin corrections to hadronic observ
ables can be computed ab-initio and we review the main results on the isos
pin corrections to the hadron spectrum. We mainly focus on the recent work
going beyond the electro-quenched approximation.\n\nhttps://agenda.infn.i

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Takashi Inoue (Nihon University)\nExplaining and pre
dicting properties of nuclei starting from QCD is one of the most challeng
ing problems in physics. There are several attempts to extract mass of nuc
lei in lattice QCD simulations\, but direct extractions are limited only t
o very light nuclei\, i.e. mass number A ≤ 4\, due to computation costs
and\, more severely\, due to several fundamental difficulties. We propose
an alternative approach to study nuclei starting from QCD. We deduce mass
and structure of 4He\, 16O\, and 40 Ca nuclei from QCD. First\, we extract
two-nucleon potentials in lattice QCD numerical simulations with the rece
ntly developed HAL QCD method\, at large quark masses for the moment. Obta
ined QCD induced NN potentials posses common features of phenomenological
ones\, namely\, strong repulsion at short distance\, attraction at medium
and long distance\, and strong tensor force\, although their strength are
weaker due to the large quark masses. Accordingly\, the potentials reprodu
ce experimental two-nucleon scattering data qualitatively. Then\, we apply
the potentials to few-body technique or many-body theory to study the nuc
lei: a variational method for 4He and the Brueckner-Hartree-Fock (BHF) the
ory for 16O and 40Ca. We find that these nuclei are bound for a large quar
k mass corresponding to a pseudo-scalar meson mass of 469 MeV and a nucleo
n mass of 1161 MeV.\n\nFig. 1 (see the attached file) shows obtained groun
d state energy of 16O as a function of parameters used in our BHF calculat
ion. Fig. 2 shows obtained single particle levels of 40Ca. Total binding e
nergies\, 5 MeV for 4He\, 35 MeV for 16O\, and 113 MeV for 40Ca\, are rath
er smaller than the experimental data\, but this is primarily because of t
he unrealistic quark mass in our lattice QCD simulation. This result shows
that one can deduce properties of medium- heavy nuclei from QCD as well a
s light ones in the HAL QCD approach. This must be significant progress in
nuclear physics.\n\nReferences\n1. T. Inoue et al. [HAL QCD Collaboration

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Evangeline Downie (George Washington University\, Wa
shington)\nPolarizabilities are fundamental properties of the nucleon whic
h can be accessed by measuring the differential cross section\, and singly
and doubly polarized asymmetries in real Compton scattering (RCS). Their
measurement gives rise to a better understanding of nucleon dynamics and
structure. Polarizabilities play an important role in many areas of physi
cs: from being the largest component of the theory error in the extraction
of the radius of the proton from the Lamb shift\, to influencing neutron
star physics. Despite their all-pervading nature\, and great theoretical
interest\, there is still a large uncertainty in the nucleon scalar polari
zabilities\, and the nucleon spin polarizabilities had\, until recently\,
never been individually measured [1].\n\nCompton Scattering data. In ord
er to minimize and control the model-dependence of the of the extraction\,
it is imperative to use a variety of different theory flavors and models.
It is also important to measure over as broad an energy and angular rang
e as possible in order to provide a strenuous test of the various theories
. The small-cross section RCS process can be difficult to cleanly extract
from the data\, it is therefore necessary to measure these RCS asymmetrie
s at multiple laboratories with differing beam types and detector setups.
To this end\, there are active RCS programs at MAX-IV in Lund\, and HIGS a
t TUNL in addition to MAMI. \n \nThe polarizabity measurement program rel

am spans spin and scalar polarizabilities [2]\, with data taken on three d
ifferent asymmetries (Sigma_{2x}\, Sigma_{2z}\, and Sigma_{3}) in the regi
on of the delta resonance in order to obtain the spin polarizabilities [3]
. These are the first measurements of doubly polarized asymmetries in real
Compton scattering. There has also been a measurement of Sigma_{3} below
pion production threshold in order to extract the proton scalar electric
and magnetic polarizabilities (alpha_{E1} and beta_{M1}\, respectively) in
dependently from each other. At HIGS\, there are planned Sigma_{2x} and S
igma_{3} measurements and the neutron measurement program is also in progr
ess. Al MAX-!V\, the final nuclear physics measurement is planned to be RC
S on the deuteron. MAMI too is moving towards neutron measurements with p
lanned RCS cross section measurements on ^{3/4}He. The theory development
necessary for the interpretation of the data is also already well underway
[4].\n\nIn these times of great change and new data\, we will provide an
overview of the current status of the experimental program across all thre

\nIn a combined study of the decay spectra of τ−→KSπ−ντ and τ
−→K−ηντ decays within a dispersive representation of the required
form factors\, we illustrate how the K∗(1410) resonance parameters\, de
fined through the pole position in the complex plane\, can be extracted wi
th improved precision as compared to previous studies. While we obtain a s
ubstantial improvement in the mass\, the uncertainty in the width is only
slightly reduced\, with the findings MK∗′=1304±17MeV and ΓK∗′=17
1±62MeV. Further constraints on the width could result from updated analy
ses of the Kπ and/or Kη spectra using the full Belle-I data sample. Pros
pects for Belle-II are also discussed. As the K−π0 vector form factor e
nters the description of the decay τ−→K−ηντ\, we are in a positi
on to investigate isospin violations in its parameters like the form facto
r slopes. In this respect also making available the spectrum of the transi
tion τ−→K−π0ντ would be extremely useful\, as it would allow to
study those isospin violations with much higher precision.\n\nhttps://agen

We present the calculation of the hyperon forward spin polarizability gamm

considered order the extraction of gamma0 is a pure prediction of chiral
perturbation theory and does not depend on renormalization schemes\, the o
btained values are a good test for this theory. Our results have a very go

our frame to hyperons to give predictions to their gamma0 values.\n\nhttps

action\, particularly\, when the πN LECs from πN analysis were applied c
onsistently. Furthermore\, the contributions at N2LO and N3LO are both fai
rly sizeable\, thus\, raising concerns about the convergence of the chiral
expansion. We show that the N4LO contribution is repulsive and\, essentia
lly\, cancels the excessive attraction of N3LO. The N5LO contribution turn
s out to be considerably smaller than the N4LO one\, hence establishing th
e desired trend of convergence. The predictions at N5LO are in excellent a
greement with the empirical phase shifts of peripheral partial waves (cf.

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Carlos Granados (Uppsala University)\nThe transverse
densities of charge and magnetization in the nucleon are studied at perip
heral transverse distances (~O(M_pi^-1))\, where they are dominated by chi
ral dynamics and can be calculated model-independently using ChEFT. The de
nsities are represented as overlap integrals of chiral light-front wave fu
nctions\, describing the transition of the initial nucleon to soft pion-nu
cleon (and Delta) intermediate states and back [1]. This first-quantized r
epresentation of chiral dynamics permits a simple quantum-mechanical inter
pretation and reveals new features of the transverse densities. The orbita
l motion of the peripheral pion causes a large left-right asymmetry of the
current in a transversely polarized nucleon\, which results in the approx
imate equality of the peripheral charge and magnetization densities. The s
triking effect testifies to the essentially relativistic nature of chiral
dynamics and could be observed in nucleon electromagnetic form factor meas
urements at low momentum transfer. The methodology developed here can be a
pplied to nucleon form factors of other operators\, such as the energy-mom
entum tensor.\n\nReferences\n[1] C. Granados\, C. Weiss\, arXiv:1503.02055

nThe n3He experiment aims to measure the parity violating asymmetry in the
direction of proton emission in the reaction vec{n}+3He-> 3H+p\, using th
e capture of polarized cold neutrons in an unpolarized gaseous 3He target.
Using effective field theory based calculations\, the size of the asymme
try is estimated to be in the range of (-9.5 --> 2.5) X 10^{-8}\, and our
goal measurement accuracy is 2 X 10^{-8}. The asymmetry is a result of th
e low energy weak interaction between nucleons and its measurement will pr
ovide a benchmark for modern effective field theory calculations. The asym
metry isolates the I = 0 components of the hadronic weak interaction. The
experiment uses a 3He multiwire ionization chamber as the combined target
and detector operated in current mode. The n3He experiment was installed
and commissioned in December 2014 on the Fundamental Neutron Physics Beaml
ine at the Spallation Neutron Source at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The
experiment is currently taking production data. I will provide an overvi

high order and the underlying methods used. The method used [1\,2] will b
e 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 n
ucleon sector where we can also obtain subleading logarithms in some cases
. We also present some numerical results [5].\n\nReferences\n[1] Leading

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Kalyan Allada (Massachusetts Institute of Technology
)\nOur understanding of nucleon spin structure is still far from complete.
Experiments conducted at Jefferson Lab have made significant contribution
s to improve our knowledge of the longitudinal spin structure by measuring
polarized structure functions\, g1 and g2\, down to Q^2 = 0.02 GeV^2. The
low Q^2 data is especially useful in testing the Chiral Perturbation theo
ry (ChiPT) calculations. The spin-dependent sum rules and the spin polariz
abilities\, constructed from the moments of g1 and g2\, provide an importa
nt tool to study the longitudinal spin structure. We will present an overv
iew of the experimental program to measure these structure functions at Je
fferson Lab\, and present some recent results on the neutron polarizabilit
ies\, proton g1 at low Q^2\, and proton and neutron d2 measurements. In ad
dition to this\, we will discuss the transverse spin structure of the nucl
eon which can be accessed using chiral-odd transversity distribution (h1)\
, and show our results from measurements done on polarized 3He target in H
all A.\n\nhttps://agenda.infn.it/event/7897/contributions/70630/

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Jan Friedrich (Physik-Department E18)\nCOMPASS has r
ecently completed the analysis of pion Compton scattering measured via the
Primakoff effect. From the first available data set\, the pion polarisabi
lity is determined with unprecedented precision. It is in agreement with t
he expectation from chiral perturbation theory\, and in tension with the p
revious dedicated measurements that suggested a value about twice as large
. The multi-purpose setup of COMPASS allowed\, at the same time\, the reco
rding of pion-photon reactions that contain more pions in the final state.
Their link to chiral dynamics will be discussed as well. Meanwhile a larg
e follow-up data set has been taken\, and is under analysis. The prospects
for the gain in precision and for an extended analysis will be given.\n\n

been used for a model independent determination of S- and P-wave multipol

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Brian Tiburzi (City College of New York)\nTechniques
to compute hadron properties from lattice QCD rely upon the limit of long
time separation. For baryons\, the signal-to-noise problem often restrict
s one to time separations that are not ideally long\, and for which coupli
ngs to excited states can obstruct the isolation of ground-state baryon p
roperties. We consider excited-state contamination in nucleon two- and thr
ee-point functions. Using chiral perturbation theory\, we determine coupli
ngs to pion-nucleon and pion-delta excited states. In two-point functions\
, these contributions are small\, in accordance with general properties of
the spectral density on a torus. For the axial-current correlation functi
on in the nucleon\, the sign of excited-state contributions suggests overe
stimation of the nucleon axial charge. Thus contamination from pion-nucleo
n excited states will not likely explain the trend in lattice QCD data.\n\

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Tobias Frederico (Instituto Tecnologico de Aeronauti
ca\, Sao Jose dos Campos)\nThe universal properties of weakly bound tetr
amers close to the unitary limit are obtained by solving Faddeev-Yakubov
sky (FY) equations for identical bosons with a zero-range interaction. The
solution of these equations demand beside a short-range three-body scale
another one for the four-boson system. We explore the correlation between
trimer and tetramer energies are shown to be universal\, and exhibits th
e effect of the new scale\, which is conveniently represented by a scaling
function depending only on dimensionless quantities. Furthermore\, the ef
fective range changes the scaling functions in a way distinct from variat
ions of the three- and four-body short range scales. The universal scaling
functions for trimer and tetramers are sensitive to the effective range\,
and in particular\, the correlation between the positions of the four-a
tom recombination peaks. We show that the shift in the position of the t
etramer resonance peaks for cesium atoms\, coming from the finite effectiv
e range\, are consistent with the existing experimental data for these b
road Feshbach resonances.\n\nhttps://agenda.infn.it/event/7897/contributio

directly from asymptotic cluster wave functions with less sensitivity to
small stochastic and systematic errors than using finite-volume energy me

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Ashot Gasparian (North Carolina A&T State University
\, Greensboro)\nThe neutral pion is the lightest strongly interacting part
icle in Nature. Therefore\, the properties of $\\pi^0$ decay are especial
ly sensitive to the underlying fundamental symmetries of quantum chromodyn
amics (QCD). In particular\, the pi^0 -> gamma gamma decay width is primar
ily defined by the spontaneous chiral symmetry breaking effect (chiral an
omaly) in QCD. Theoretical activities in this domain over the past severa
l years have resulted in a high precision (1% level) prediction for the pi
^0 -> gamma gamma decay width. The PrimEx collaboration at Jefferson Lab h
as developed and performed two new experiments to measure the pi^0 -> gam
ma gamma decay width with high precision using the Primakoff effect. The p
ublished result from the first experiment (PrimEx-I)\, Gamma(pi^0 -> gamma
gamma) = 7.82+- 0.14 (stat) +- 0.17 (syst) eV\, is a factor of 2.1 more p
recise than the currently accepted value\, and it is in agreement with the
chiral anomaly prediction. The second experiment (PrimEx-II) was performe
d in 2010 with a goal of 1.4% total uncertainty to address the next-to-le
ading-order chiral perturbation theory calculations. The preliminary resul
ts from the PrimEx-II experiment will be presented in this talk.\n\nhttps:

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Jose Manuel Alarcon (University of Bonn)\nThe electr

l measurements\, it is crucial to have a good understanding over all possi
ble contributions. The polarizabilities give the information about the two
photon exchange contributions stemming from the internal electromagnetic
structure of the nucleon. This is specially important for the so-called "P
roton Radius Puzzle". In this talk I will show how in a recent calculation
in the relativistic formulation of chiral effective field theory with the
Delta degrees of freedom\, we could achieve a prediction of the low Q^2 b
ehaviour of the scalar and spin polarizabilities that is in good agreement
with the MAID model and experimental data.\n\nFinally I will show the imp

extending to systematic measurements of the deuteron breakup reaction [1\
,2\,3]. Intermediate energies\, below the threshold for pion production\,
deserve special attention: it is the region where comparison with exact th
eoretical calculations is possible\, while the sensitivity to various aspe
cts of interaction\, like subtle effects of the dynamics beyond the pairwi
se nucleon-nucleon force\, Coulomb interaction between protons\, or relati
vistic effects\, is significant. In addition to differential cross section
\, the observables related to nuclear polarization are studied\, like vect
or and tensor analyzing powers\, spin-correlation coefficients or polariza
tion transfer coefficients. All these effects vary with energy and appear
with different strength in certain observables and phase space regions\, w
hat calls for systematic investigations of a possibly rich set of observab
les determined in a wide range of energies. Recently\, the data base for t
he reaction of deuteron breakup in collision with proton has been signific
antly enriched in the domain of medium energies. High precision experiment
al data for cross section\, vector (proton) analyzing power and vector and
tensor (deuteron) analyzing powers were collected with detection systems
covering large part of the phase space of the 1H(d\,pp)n and 2H(p\,pp)n re
actions. Usage of the multidetector systems with significant solid angle c
overage provides not only very rich data sets but also good opportunities
for controlling consistency of the results. The experimental results are c
ompared with the theoretical predictions\, in which the full dynamics of t
he three-nucleon (3N) system is obtained in different ways: Realistic nucl
eon-nucleon (NN) potentials are combined with model 3N forces or with an e
ffective 3N interaction resulting from the explicit treatment of the ∆-i
sobar excitation. Alternatively\, the chiral perturbation theory approach
is used: At the next-to-next-to-leading order with all relevant NN and 3N
contributions taken into account\, while at the next order (N3LO) without
taking into account the corresponding 3NF contributions. The next step in
complication of the system are studies of reactions involving 4 nucleons -
more sensitive\, as expected\, to subtle dynamics beyond the pairwise int
eraction. A survey of recent and planned experiments in the 3- and 4-nucle
on systems will be given.\n\nReferences\n1. K. Sagara\, Few Body Syst. 48\

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Xu Feng (Columbia University\, New York)\nThe rare k
aon decays\, K → πν¯ν\, have attracted increasing interest during th
e past few\ndecades. As ﬂavor changing neutral current processes\, these
decays are highly suppressed in the standard model and thus provide ideal
probes for the observation of new physics effects. As second-order weak i
nteractions\, the ultra-rare decays K → πν¯ν represent a signiﬁcan
t challenge in experiments. After 40 years search\, only 7 K+ → π+ ν¯
ν events have been collected in BNL E787 and E949 by 2008 [1]. A new gene
ration of experiment\, NA62 in CERN [2]\, aims at an observation of O(100)
events and a 10%-precision measurement of the branching ratio in two year
s. The standard model predictions of K → πν¯ν branching ratios are d
ominated by short-distance contributions. The long-distance contributions
below the energy scale of the charm quark mass are safely neglected in KL
→ π0 ν¯ν and are expected to be small in K+ → π+ ν¯ν. Although
small\, the long-distance contributions estimated from a phenomenological
ansatz involving both chiral perturbation theory and operator production
expansion enhance the branching ratio by 6% [3]. Recognizing that the stan
dard model predictions will soon be confronted with new experiment results
\, a lattice QCD calculation of the long-distance contribution to K+ →
π+ ν¯ν is important. In this talk I will present an exploratory calcul
ation of the long-distance contributions to the K+ → π+ ν¯ν decay am
plitude from ﬁrst principles using lattice QCD.\n\nReferences\n1. A. Art

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Gerald Feldman (George Washington University\, Washi
ngton)\nThe electric and magnetic polarizabilities of the proton are now r
elatively well known\, owing to Compton scattering measurements on hydroge
n targets over the past 20 years [1]. However\, in the case of the neutron
\, these structure constants are still quite uncertain\, due to the fact t
hat there are no free neutron targets and that quasi-free Compton scatteri
ng on a neutron in a nucleus has a significantly reduced cross section com
pared to that of a proton because the neutron is uncharged. These issues c
an be addressed by performing elastic Compton scattering on deuterium –
in this case\, the scattering cross section is higher\, but the contributi
ons from the proton and meson-exchange effects need to be taken into accou
nt in order to extract meaningful information about the neutron. To invest
igate this question\, a multi-institutional collaboration has been conduct
ing a program of elastic Compton scattering experiments on deuterium at th
e MAX IV Laboratory in Lund\, Sweden using tagged photons in the energy ra
nge E_γ = 65-115 MeV. We have assembled at one laboratory\, for the first
time\, three of the world’s largest NaI detectors – CATS (from Mainz)
\, BUNI (from Boston University)\, and DIANA (from the University of Kentu
cky) – each having better than ∆E/E ∼ 2% photon energy resolution. W
e have measured elastic Compton scattering cross sections at laboratory an
gles of θ_γ = 60\, 90\, 120\, and 150 deg over this energy range in 8 Me
V steps. This effectively doubles the world’s set of elastic Compton sca
ttering data from deuterium and provides valuable input for chiral effecti
ve field theory (χEFT) calculations [2]. The absolute normalization of th
e current data was rigorously checked via separate measurements of elastic
Compton scattering on carbon [3]\, which can be compared with precise val
ues in the literature. These new deuterium data overlap previous measureme
nts and extend them by 20 MeV to higher energies where the sensitivity of
the cross section to the polarizabilities is enhanced. Based on χEFT fits
to the expanded world data set\, new values for the neutron electric and
magnetic polarizabilities have been obtained with greater accuracy than pr
eviously achieved\, decreasing the statistical error by more than 30% [4].

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Lauro Tomio (Federal University of ABC\, Sao Paolo)\
nRenormalized fixed-point Hamiltonians are formulated for systems describe
d by interactions that originally contain point-like singularities (as the
Dirac-delta and/or its derivatives). They express the renormalization gro
up invariance of quantum mechanics. The approach has been applied in the
study low-energy scattering observables\, such as the nucleon-nucleon inte
raction with one pion exchange potentials\, as well as bound-state systems
. In case of low-energy bound-state systems\, this subtractive procedure w
as found convenient to introduce the scales in formalisms with zero-range
interactions\, when renormalizing the theory. Of particular interest in re
cent years has been the studies of neutron-rich light nuclei\, with two-ne
utron halos and a core\, dominated by s-wave short-range two-body interact
ions. In this case\, the observables are expressed by universal scaling la
ws obtained in the limit of a renormalized zero-range force\, expected to
be model independent for large halos. The corresponding scaling functions
are determined by the neutron-neutron and neutron-core low-energy informat
ion\, such as scattering lengths and short-range parameters. By using rec
ent experimental data\, which constrain the two-neutron separation energy\
, we study the core momentum distribution for large halo nuclei\, like Lit
hium-11\, Carbon-20 and Carbon-22.\n\nhttps://agenda.infn.it/event/7897/co

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Frederic Brünner (Vienna University of Technology)\
nI present new results on glueball decay rates in the Sakai-Sugimoto model
\, a holographic top-down approach for QCD with chiral quarks based on a p
robe-brane construction within Witten’s holographic model of nonsupersym
metric Yang-Mills theory. We calculated [1] rates for decays into two pion
s\, two vector mesons and four pions\, using a range of the ’t Hooft cou
pling which closely reproduces the decay rate of ρ and ω mesons and lead
s to a value for the gluon condensate consistent with QCD sum rules. We co
ncluded that the holographic mode corresponding to the lowest excitation o
f a dilatonic scalar provides a narrow glueball state in the right mass ra
nge for an identiﬁcation with f0(1500) or f0(1710)\, while the results a
ctually favour the latter as a glueball candidate. This conclusion receive
s further support from our latest work [2] on implementing ﬁnite masses
for pseudoscalar mesons by extrapolating from the calculable vertex of glu
eball ﬁelds and the η meson\, which is a consequence of the Witten-Vene
ziano mechanism. In line with the mechanism of chiral suppression [3]\, we
found a considerable enhancement of the decay of scalar glueballs into ka
ons and the η meson\, in close agreement with experimental data on f0(171
0).\n\nReferences\n1. F. Bruenner\, D. Parganlija and A. Rebhan\, Glueball

LA is a long term project that started in the 90's and has been under deve

new parametrization of the corresponding hadronic current based on the Res
onance Chiral Lagrangian (RChL) and with the recent availability of the un
folded distributions from BaBar analysis for all invariant hadronic masses
. The choice of this channel was motivated by its relatively large branch

A set of the hadronic currents within RChL for other final states with tw

using either Fortran or C++ code. Using the new framework the theoretical
model parameters are fitted to the one-dimensional distributions provided

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Matthias Schindler (University of South Carolina\, C
olumbia)\nParity-violating interactions between nucleons are the manifesta
tion of an interplay of strong and weak interactions between quarks in the
nucleons. Because of the short range of the weak interactions\, these par
ity-violating forces provide a unique probe of low-energy strong interacti
ons. An ongoing experimental program is mapping out this weak component of
the nuclear force in few-nucleon systems. Recent theoretical progress in
analyzing and interpreting hadronic parity violation in such systems\, bas
ed on effective field theory methods\, will be described. In particular\,
important information on parity-violating nucleon-nucleon interactions can
be gained from an asymmetry in deuteron photodisintegration\, which might
be measurable at a future high-intensity photon source such as the propos

at flavor current conservation constrains the structure of chiral-scale pe

en experiment and lowest order chiral SU(3) x SU(3) perturbation theory (C
hPT_3) for amplitudes involving the f_0(500) resonance and O(m_K) extrapol
ations in momenta. In ChPT_sigma\, it is assumed that 3-flavor QCD has an
infrared fixed point where the chiral condensate induces nine Nambu-Goldst
one bosons: pi\, K\, eta and a QCD dilaton sigma which we identify with f
_0(500). In the leading order of ChPT_sigma\, dilaton-pole dominance expla
ins the Delta I = 1/2 rule in nonleptonic K-decays. The effect of the simp
lification noted above is that the theory becomes more predictive for the
decays sigma -> pi pi and sigma -> gamma gamma and hence for the sigma NN
coupling.\n\nhttps://agenda.infn.it/event/7897/contributions/70600/

Based on Chiral Ward Identities we test the applicability of a fixed-temp
erature chiral expansion given that chiral symmetry is spontaneously broke
n. It indicates that a sharp real-time excitation persists with the quantu
m numbers of the pion consistently with Goldstone's theorem even at T=150
MeV. We determine the real part of the pole and its residue in the axial-c
harge density correlator at zero and finite momentum. The time-dependent c
orrelators are also analyzed using the Maximum Entropy method and the Back
us-Gilbert method yielding consistent results. In addition\, we also test
the predictions of ordinary chiral perturbation theory around the point (T
=0\, m=0) for the temperature dependence of static observables. Around the
crossover region\, we find that all quantities considered depend only mil
dly on the quark mass in the range 8 MeV \n\nhttps://agenda.infn.it/event/

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Betzalel Bazak (Racah Institute of Physics\, The Heb
rew University of Jerusalem)\nRecently\, Tan suggested that the properties
of universal quantum gases depend on a new characteristic quantity\, call
ed the contact. The contact describes the probability of two particles com
ing close to each other\, i.e. it is a measure of the number of close part
icle pairs in the system. Utilizing the contact\, this theory predicts the
energy\, pressure and other properties of the system. It was proven right
in a series of ultracold atomic experiments. We generalize Tan's contact
to nuclear systems\, introducing the various nuclear contacts\, taking in
to account all possible pair configurations. The leading neutron-proton co
ntact is then evaluated from medium energy photodisintegration experiments
. To this end\, the Levinger quasi-deuteron model of nuclear photodisinteg
ration is reformulated\, and the bridge between the Levinger constant and
the contact is established. Using experimental evaluations of Levinger's c
onstant the value of the neutron-proton contact in finite nuclei and in sy
mmetric nuclear matter is extracted\, and compared to the universal theory
. Utilizing the contact\, a new asymptotic connection between the one-nucl
eon and two-nucleon momentum distributions\, describing the two-body short
-range correlations in nuclei\, is obtained. Using available numerical dat
a\, we extract few connections between the different contacts and verify t
heir relations to the momentum distributions.\n\nhttps://agenda.infn.it/ev

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Thomas Wolkanowski-Gans (Goethe-Universität Frankfu
rt am Main)\nA way to understand the light scalar sector of hadron physics
is by applying a type of dynamical generation in which additional resonan
ces arise as companion poles from quark-antiquark seed states by incorpora
ting mesonic loops at the level of S-wave propagators [1−3]. Along this
line\, we ﬁrst repeat and complete the calculations of previous works of
Tornqvist and Roos (TR) and Boglione and Pennington (BP)\, where the reso
nance a0(980) appears as an additional pole of the propagator of the predo
minately quark-antiquark state a0(1450). Both works were important as they
demonstrated the feasibility of the idea of companion poles – however\,
we show that in TR\, the same as in BP\, the pole width of both states is
too large by a factor of 2 when compared to data\, and that in BP the pol
e mass of a0(1450) is too large of about 400 MeV. We then construct an e
ﬀective model Lagrangian for a0(1450) coupling to pseudoscalar mesons wi
th both non-derivative and derivative interactions\, and calculate its pro
pagator. We demonstrate that it is indeed possible to obtain two poles\, o
ne for a0(980) and one for a0(1450)\, in good agreement with data\, thus s
howing that the mechanism of companion poles can deliver not only qualitat
ive but also quantitative correct results.\n\nReferences\n1. N. A. Tornqvi

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Sinya Aoki (Kyoto University)\nWe discuss the fate o
f the axial U(1) symmetry in 2-flavor QCD\, when the non-singlet chiral sy
mmetries are recovered at finite temperature. We theoretically investigate
the constraints on the eigenvalue density of the Dirac operator\, derived
from the non-singlet chiral symmetries among various multi-point correlat
ion functions in the chiral limit. We show that the axial U(1) symmetry\,
broken by the anomaly at low temperature\, is "effectively" recovered in t
he chiral symmetric phases of 2-flavor QCD above the critical temperature.
Here the effective recovery of the axial U(1) symmetry means\, for exampl
e\, that the susceptibility of non-singlet (pi) and singlet (eta) pseudo-s
calar mesons become identical in the symmetric phase\, which implies that
the axial U(1) anomaly is invisible in these channels. We next consider r
ecent numerical investigations on the axial U(1) symmetry in 2-flavor latt
ice QCD with exact lattice chiral symmetry\, which is shown to be crucial
for this problem. Numerical results in these study confirm our theoretical
expectation mentioned above. We finally discuss an implication of our re
sults to the phase structure of lattice QCD at finite temperature.\n\nhttp

in the framework of resummed chiral perturbation theory to extract informa

limit\, as well as the mass difference of the light quarks. We compare ou
r results with recent CHPT and lattice QCD fits and find some tension\, as
the eta to 3pi data seem to prefer a larger ratio of the chiral order par
ameters. The results also seem to exclude a large value of the chiral deca
y constant\, which was found by some recent works. In addition\, we presen

experimental results for the polarization observables Σ\, Py\, Ox\, Oz\,
Cx\, and Cz for final-state interactions (FSI) in exclusive Lambda photopr
oduction off the deuteron. The observables were obtained from data collect
ed during the E06-103 (g13) experiment with the CEBAF Large Acceptance Spe
ctrometer in Hall B at Jefferson Lab. The g13 experiment ran with unpolari
zed deuteron target and circularly- and linearly-polarized photon beams wi
th energies between 0.5 GeV and 2.5 GeV and collected about 5×1010 events
with multiple charged particles in the final state. To select the reactio
n of interest\, the kaon and Lambda decay products\, a proton and a negati
ve pion\, were detected in CLAS. Missing-mass technique was used to furthe
r reduce the event sample. Final-state interaction events were selected by
requesting that the reconstructed neutron has a momentum larger than 200
MeV/c. The large statistics of E06-103 provided statistically meaningful F
SI event samples\, which allow for the extraction of one- and two-fold dif
ferential single- and double-polarization observables. In this talk we wil
l show preliminary results for a set of six observables for photon energie
s between 0.9 GeV and 2.3 GeV and for several kinematic variables in the L
ambda-neutron center-of-mass frame. Comparison with theoretical calculatio
ns will also be discussed. Our results are the very first measurements of
polarization observables for FSI in hyperon photoproduction and will be us

dy Ξ-hypernuclear spectroscopy.\n\nOur main objective is to calculate the
decay rate for the weak decay of ΛΛ-hypernuclei\, including all the int
ermediate baryonic channels allowed by the strong interaction. I will focu
s on the analysis of the decay induced by the Λ hyperon\, i.e.\, starting
with a ΛΛ pair. The weak decay mechanism describing the two-body weak
interaction is modelled by the exchange of mesons belonging to the ground
state of pseudoscalar and vector octets. The tree-level values for the bar
yon-baryon-meson coupling constants are derived using SU(3) symmetry for p
seudoscalar mesons and the Hidden Local Symmetry for vector mesons. In the
computation of the decay rate\, the effects of the strong interaction on
the initial state are introduced through the solution of a G-matrix equati
on\, with the input of realistic baryon-baryon potentials\, while the fina
l hyperon-nucleon wavefunctions are obtained in an analogous way\, by solv
ing the corresponding T-matrix equation.\n\nhttps://agenda.infn.it/event/7

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Luciano Libero Pappalardo (INFN-Ferrara)\nIn the con
text of rapid theoretical developments in non-perturbative QCD\, a formali
sm of Transverse Momentum Dependent parton distribution functions (TMDs) a
nd of Generalized Parton Distributions (GPDs) was introduced in the last t
wo decades\, providing a more comprehensive multi-dimensional description
of the nucleon. TMDs and GPDs allow in fact for complementary descriptions
of the nucleon in three dimensions (nucleon tomography)\, spanned by the
quarks longitudinal momenta and\, respectively\, by the their transverse m
omenta components and transverse spatial coordinates. They thus contribute
\, with different approaches\, to the full phase-space description of the
nucleon structure. Furthermore\, they provide complementary insights into
the yet unmeasured quark orbital angular momentum. Experimentally\, TMDs a
nd GPDs can be accessed through the analysis of specific azimuthal asymmet
ries measured\, respectively\, in semi-inclusive deep-inelastic scattering
and hard exclusive processes\, such as hard leptoproduction of real photo
ns or mesons. The HERMES experiment has collected wealth of data on scatte
ring of a longitudinally polarized lepton (electron or positron) beam from
HERA off unpolarized\, longitudinally and transversely polarized internal
gas targets. Collected data allowed to measure a variety of asymmetries w
ith respect to beam charge\, beam helicity and target polarization. A sele
ction of HERMES results on observables sensitive to TMDs and GPDs will be
presented.\n\nhttps://agenda.infn.it/event/7897/contributions/70584/

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Henryk witala (Jagiellonian University\, Krakow)\nCo
mparison of theoretical predictions based on a nucleon-nucleon potential w
ith data for elastic nucleon-deuteron (Nd) scattering and nucleon induced
deuteron breakup reveals the importance of the three-nucleon force (3NF).
Inclusion of semi-phenomenological 3NF models into calculations in many ca
ses improves the data description. However\, some serious discrepancies re
main even when 3NF is included. At low energies the prominent examples wer
e found for the vector analyzing power in elastic Nd scattering and for th
e neutron-deuteron (nd) breakup cross sections in neutron-neutron (nn) qua
si-free-scattering (QFS) and symmetric-space-star (SST) geometries [1]. Si
nce both these conﬁgurations depend predominantly on the S-wave nucleon-
nucleon (NN) force components\, these cross section discrepancies have ser
ious consequences for the nn 1S0 force component. At energies above ≈ 10
0 MeV current 3NF’s only partially improve the description of data for c
ross section and spin observables in elastic Nd scattering and breakup. Th
e complex angular and energy behavior of analyzing powers\, spin correlati
on and spin transfer coefﬁcients fails to be explained by standard nucle
on-nucleon interactions alone or combined with current models of 3NF’s [
2-3]. One of the reasons for the above disagreements could be a lack of co
nsistency between 2N and 3N phenomenological potentials used or/and omissi
on of important terms in the applied 3NF. The Chiral Eﬀective Field Theo
ry approach provides consistent two- and three-nucleon forces. The 3NF occ
urs for the ﬁrst time at next-to-next-to leading order (N2LO) of chiral
expansion. The chiral NN potentials have been constructed up to N4LO order
of chiral expansion [4]. The N3LO and N4LO NN forces when used in 3N calc
ulations provide description of NN data of the same quality as standard\,
realistic NN potentials. The chiral 3NF at N3LO\, derived recently\, consi
sts of long range parts with the 2π-exchange\, 1π-2π and ring terms [5]
and a short-range contributions 2π-contact and relativistic corrections
of order 1/m [6]. This is supplemented by 1π- and 3N- contact terms. Prel
iminary results obtained with chiral forces for elastic Nd scattering and
breakup will be presented.\n\nReferences\n1. H. Witala et al.\, Phys. Rev.

certain experimental data\, we investigate this form factor using analyti
city and unitarity in a framework known as the method of unitarity bounds.
We use a QCD correlator computed on the spacelike axis by operator produc
t expansion and perturbative QCD as input\, and exploit unitarity and the
positivity of its spectral function\, including the two-pion contribution
that can be reliably calculated using high-precision data on the pion form
factor. From this information\, we derive upper and lower bounds on the m

a significant check on those obtained with standard dispersion relations\,
confirming the existence of a disagreement with experimental data in the

Lattice QCD has substantially improved its predictive power for light nucl

high pionic mass. We argue that the proper low-energy theory is a contact
(or pionless) approach\, since for these systems pion effects are of short
-range. By means of this effective theory it is possible to extend LQCD pr
edictions to heavier nuclei. The low energy constants of the theory at lea
ding order can be determined using LQCD data of binding energy of deuteron
\, triton and helion. I will present predictions [4] for binding energy of
4He\, 5He\, 5Li and 6Li calculated with effective-interaction hyperspheri
cal harmonics (EIHH) and auxiliary field diffusion Montecarlo (AFDMC)\, th
en discuss the extension of the method\, done with AFDMC\, for much heavie
r nuclei. In this way we illustrate for the first time how to make predict
ions on nuclei starting from LQCD results\, anticipating the procedure tha

results with smaller pion mass.\n\nReferences\n1. T. Yamazaki\, K. Ishikaw

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Roman Skibinski (Jagiellonian University\, Krakow)\n
In the recent decade the chiral Eﬀective Field Theory (χEFT) has proven
its predictive power in low energy nuclear physics. Within this approach
the two- and three-nucleon (3N) forces have been derived perturbatively in
a consistent manner [1\,2]. The three-nucleon force (3NF) occurs for the
ﬁrst time at the next-to-next-to leading order (N2LO) of chiral expansio
n. Inclusion of N2LO 3NF to study three-nucleon processes has revealed an
overall good agreement between theoretical predictions and data [3]. The q
uality of data description is similar to those obtained with semi-phenomen
ological potentials. The remaining discrepancies are partially related to
poor spin structure of these chiral forces. The further improvement in dat
a description is expected when higher order chiral forces will be taken in
to account. Unfortunately\, the 3NF at the next order (N3LO) has much more
complex structure [4\,5] and its inclusion in theoretical studies is much
more challenging. In recent papers [6\,7] we have studied the role of ful
l chiral N3LO 3NF in a description of the nucleon-deuteron elastic scatter
ing and the deuteron breakup and found no improvement in data description.
Moreover unnaturally large values of the two free parameters (low energy
constants) of this 3NF have to be used to describe 3H binding energy and t
he neutron-deuteron doublet scattering length. The studies [6\,7] already
accelerated work on the new generation of chiral NN and 3N forces. Recentl
y\, the improved chiral NN potentials up to N3LO [8] and N4LO [9] have bee
n derived by E.Epelbaum and collaborators. The most interesting feature of
theses forces is avsubstantial reduction of the cut-oﬀ artifacts in com
parison with the older models used in [6\,7]. In this contribution the ﬁ
rst results obtained with these very new forces up to N4LO for the deutero
n photodisintegration process\, the nucleon-deuteron radiative capture and
the muon capture on the 3He will be reported. Since the consistent chiral
nuclear electro-magnetic and weak currents are not available yet\, we hav
e included the electromagnetic meson exchange currents via the Siegert the
orem. In all cases the convergence of the theoretical predictions in respe
ct to chiral expansion as well as the dependence of predictions on cut-o
ﬀ parameters of the used forces will be discussed.\n\nReferences\n1. E.

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Harald W. Griesshammer (George Washington University
\, Washington)\nCompton scattering from protons and neutrons probes the tw
o-photon response of the nucleon in electric and magnetic fields at fixed
photon frequency and multipolarity [1]. It provides detailed tests of the
symmetries and strengths of the interactions of the nucleonic constituents
with each other and with photons. Proton-neutron differences explore the
interplay between chiral symmetry breaking and short-distance Physics. At
low energies\, the process is parametrised by six energy-dependent dipole
polarisabilities. For convenience\, the information is however often compr
essed into the two scalar dipole polarisabilities αE1 and βM1 at the sta
tic point. In combination with emerging lattice QCD determinations\, they
provide stringent tests for our theoretical description of hadron structur
e. A plenary talk by J. A. McGovern discusses new high-accuracy extraction
s of the proton and neutron static electric and magnetic scalar dipole pol
arisabilities from all published elastic data below 300 MeV in Chiral EFT
with explicit ∆(1232) degrees of freedom and model-independent estimates
of higher-order corrections [2\,3].\n\nThis contribution addresses opport
unities for χEFT to serve as intermediary between first-principle calcula
tions in lattice QCD and efforts which are ongoing or approved at MAX-lab\
, HIγS and MAMI (cf. E. Downie’s plenary talk). Such high-intensity exp
eriments with polarised targets and polarised beams allow the extraction n
ot only of scalar polarisabilities\, but in particular of the so-far poorl
y explored spin-polarisabilities which parametrise the stiffness of the nu
cleon spin in external electro-magnetic fields (nucleonic bi-refringence/F
araday effect). New chiral predictions for a comprehensive study of proton
\, deuteron and 3He observables extend the analysis to higher energies and
higher orders and help to better determine spin and neutron polarisabilit
ies [4\,5]. They also serve to relate emerging lattice QCD simulations at
m_π > 200 MeV to data at the physical point. In chiral lattice extrapolat
ions\, the relative theoretical uncertainties increase with m_π: the magn
itudes of the polarisabilities decrease\; the χEFT expansion parameter it
self increases\; and the ∆(1232) becomes more important\, leading to a r
e-ordering of contributions. We quantify such uncertainties using a widely
applicable method and compare to existing simulations [6].\n\n\nReference

three-nucleon force (TNF)\, none of the presently available models leads t
o a satisfactory description of bound and scattering states of the $A=3$ s
ystem. It seems natural to ascribe the above situation to the fact that t
hese models include a very small number of adjustable parameters\, compare
d to the two-nucleon interaction case. For example\, in the framework of t
he chiral expansion\, only 2 low-energy constants (LECs) enter up to and i
ncluding N3LO. At the following order (N4LO) one encounters 10 additional
LECs\, which parametrize the short-range component of the TNF\, and are un
constrained by chiral symmetry. As such\, they could provide the necessary
flexibility to arrive at a truly realistic model for the TNF. In this co
ntribution we will report about our progress along these lines. In particu
lar we examine to which extent the AV18 $NN$ interaction\, supplemented by
the leading and subleading contact-range TNF\, provides a satisfactory fi

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Harald W. Griesshammer (George Washington University
\, Washington)\nThe past few years have witnessed a renewed emphasis of th
e need to quantify residual theoretical uncertainties [1\,2]. Ideally\,
“double-blind” calculations would assess them based on input and metho
d\, and not by comparison to data. This is particularly important if data
is absent or its consistency needs to be checked. Effective Field Theories
promise a well-defined scheme to provide such reproducible\, objective\,
quantitative error estimates. While straightforward in a perturbative EFT
like the purely mesonic or one-baryon sector of χEFT\, how can one valida
te the expansion in a non-perturbative EFT? This is a particularly nagging
question for few-nucleon systems\, where a fully consistent chiral EFT is
still under development since the NN interaction is non-perturbative\, le
ading to heated discussions which of the proposed power countings is consi
stent. A reliable uncertainty estimate is not just a cornerstone of the Ef
fective Field Theory methodology. To be able to falsify predictions of a t
heory is central to the Scientific Method. This talk proposes a means to c
heck the internal consistency of a non-perturbative expansion on a semi-qu
antitative level. One can indeed quantify the consistency of an EFT from t
he dependence of observables O(k\; Λ) at low momentum k on the cutoff Λ
employed in numerical calculations [2]. This way\, one actually turns into
an advantage the annoying fact that most nonperturbative systems do not a
llow for closed-form calculations. The power-counting in the small\, dimen
sion-less quantity Q ∝ k of an EFT predicts (up to logarithmic correctio
ns)\n\n 1 − O(k\; Λ1)/O(k\; Λ2) ∝ ( k/Λ_EFT)^{n+1}
(1)\n\nfor a calculation at order Qn \, where ¯ Λ_EFT is th
e typical high-energy scale at which the\nEFT description breaks down [3].
The slope of a double-logarithmic plot of a suitable quantity against k r
eveals thus the order of accuracy n and an estimate of Λ_EFT. In contradi

on new physics theories. In the past recent years\, realistic computations
of A2\, the amplitude of K->(pipi)_(I=2)\, have become possible and reach
ed a level of 10% accuracy. I will explain how this computation has become
possible and will report on the other channel\, much more challenging\, i
n which the two-pion state has isospin I=0. I will also report on a possib
le explanation for the Delta I = 1/2 rule\, the fact the magnitude of the
amplitude A0 is around 20 times larger than the one of A2\, although a nai

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Bachir Moussallam (IPN\, Université Paris-Sud)\nThe
isospin violating eta->3pi decays are expected to provide the best observ
ables for the determination of the u-d quark mass difference. However\, us
ing the chiral expansion of the Eta -> 3Pi amplitude in the physical regio
n has proved problematic\, as it fails to reproduce the recent precise mea
surements of the Dalitz plot parameters. In order to circumvent this probl
em\, it was proposed to combine the chiral expansion\, used in an unphysic
al region\, together with the dispersive formalism of Khuri and Treiman.
We discuss here the possibility of extending this formalism\, which so far
accounts for only elastic pi-pi rescattering\, in order to further accoun
t for the effects of both inelastic pi-pi rescattering and eta-pi rescatte
ring. In the 1 GeV region of the dispersive integrands\, in particular\, t
hese effects are enhanced by the f_0 as well as the a_0 resonances. The e
ffect of the isospin violating K^+-K^0 mass difference\, influenced by the
se resonances\, is then also accounted for in the dispersive integrals.\n\

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Aron Bernstein (Massachusetts Institute of Technolog
y\, Cambridge)\nThe pi^0 rightarrow gamma gamma decay rate is dominated by
the QCD axial anomaly that is increased by approx 4.5% +- 1.0% by the mix
ing of the pi^0 wave function with the eta\, eta^' mesons. This relatively
large isospin breaking effect is proportional to the mass difference of
the up and down quarks. It has been calculated in Chiral Perturbation Theo
ry (ChPT) by three slightly different methods with good agreement between
them. This is a solid QCD prediction\; the error is due to the uncertainty
due to our knowledge of the low energy constants of ChPT and not by highe
r order terms.The accuracy of the present experiments are significantly le
ss than the theoretical prediction and represents a significant experiment
al challenge. A summary of the three three experimental methods to perform
this measurement and current efforts to improve them will be briefly revi
ewed with emphasis on one by the COMPASS collaboration at CERN. \n\nFor th
e pi^0 -> gamma gamma* decay the form factor can be written as F(Q^2) = F(
0)(1 -R(pi^0)^2 Q^2/6 +...) at low Q^2. This suggests a possible way to m
easure the size ("anomaly radius") of the pi^0 meson which does not have a
charge or magnetic radius. Using the latest\, most accurate\, calculated
value of the slope parameter obtained from a dispersive analysis of the pi
on transition form factor\, this RMS radius is 5% smaller than the pi^pm
electric radius. Using vector dominance these radii are expected to be equ
al. However this similarity\, and the difference between these values\, ca
lls for a careful theoretical and experimental examination of this fundame
ntal quantity. Clearly the charge and "anomaly" radii correspond to the ex
pectation values of different operations. A comparison of the scalar and e
lectromagnetic radii of the pion and proton with some interesting (puzzlin
g?) differences will be presented.\n\nhttps://agenda.infn.it/event/7897/co

ecays have several features of interest: they allow an accurate measuremen
t of ππ-scattering lengths\; the decay is the best source for the determ
ination of some low-energy constants of chiral perturbation theory (χPT)\
; one form factor of the decay is connected to the chiral anomaly. We pres
ent the final results of our dispersive analysis of K_{l4} decays\, which
provides a resummation of ππ- and Kπ-rescattering effects [1\,2]. The f
ree parameters of the dispersion relation are fitted to the data of the hi
gh-statistics experiments E865 [3\,4] and NA48/2 [5\,6]. The data input is
corrected for additional isospin-breaking effects\, which were not taken
into account in the experimental analyses [7]. By matching to χPT at NLO
and NNLO\, we determine the low-energy constants L1r\, L2r\, and L3r. Rece
ntly published data [6] from NA48/2 allow even a determination of L9r. In
contrast to a pure chiral treatment\, the dispersion relation describes th
e observed curvature of one of the K_{l4} form factors\, which we understa
nd as an effect of rescattering beyond NNLO.\n\nReferences\n1. G. Colangel

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Manuel Pavon Valderrama (IPN Orsay)\nEffective field
theories are generic descriptions of low-energy phenomena for which a fun
damental theory is unknown or impractical to solve. The formulation of EFT
s is grounded on symmetries and power counting. While symmetries provide t
he connection with the underlying theory\, power counting -- how to order
the effective interactions from more to less relevant -- makes EFTs predic
tive and systematic. However power counting is in general not trivial. For
systems that are perturbative at low energies one can establish the count
ing using naive dimensional analysis (NDA)\, which states that the dimensi
onful couplings of EFT scale as powers of M. But when low energy physics i
s non-perturbative\, the choice of a counting that is theoretically consis
tent and phenomenologically acceptable is a much more involved task. For n
uclear physics\, which is non-perturbative (e.g. the deuteron)\, NDA fails
. Yet we know now how to organize the counting\, though until recently onl
y in the two-body sector.\n\nIn this contribution we explain how to extend
power counting to reactions involving an external probe -- such as a phot
on\, electron or neutrino -- and two nucleons. We use renormalization grou
p analysis (RGA) as the tool to determine the size of nuclear two-body cur
rents. The findings we made are compatible with well-known observations in
the previous literature\, for instance\, the necessity of a two-body curr
ent in radiative neutron capture or that deuteron form factors can be expl
ained to good accuracy without contact two-body currents. In the pionless
case we find that there arr important departures from NDA in a few reactio
ns\, particularly those involving the 1S_0 singlet channel\, indicating th
at many previous EFT calculations could be improved by taking these change
s in consideration.\n\nhttps://agenda.infn.it/event/7897/contributions/705

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: AlaaEldeen Elmeshenb (Jagiellonian University\, Krak
ow)\nThe study of few-nucleon system is interesting and important. It give
s a microscopic description of complex systems within the framework of mod
ern concepts of nucleon-nucleon and many-body interactions. Using the muon
capture process is an ideal tool to study few-nucleon systems. In this wo
rk we plan to investigate the µ− + d → ν_µ + n + n capture reaction
. This reaction is interesting for several reasons. First of all\, it offe
rs a testing ground for the nuclear wave functions\, which for any nucleon
-nucleon (NN) forces can be constructed for such light systems with great
accuracy. This reaction\, is treated as the decay of the corresponding muo
nic atom\, with the muon initially on the lowest K shell. The muon binding
energy in this atom can be safely neglected and in the initial state we d
eal essentially with the deuteron and muon at rest. The general formalism
for dealing with electroweak reactions on the deuteron will be presented.
We will concentrate on the nuclear matrix elements of the corresponding we
ak current operator calculated in the momentum space within partial wave d
ecomposition scheme. In the current operator apart from the relatively wel
l known single nucleon contributions\, the two-nucleon parts (generated by
various meson exchange) play an important role. Their details are not wel
l known and several models should be considered [1]. We will employ variou
s models of NN and 3N forces\, such as the Bonn B [2] or chiral NNLO poten
tials [3]. Additionally\, we will be able to use for the ﬁrst time the s
o-called ”improved” chiral nucleon-nucleon potentials from the Bochum-
Bonn group [4] for the µ− + d → ν_µ + n + n capture reaction\, we w
ill show our predictions for all the available ﬁve orders of the chiral
expansion and for all the ﬁve regulators at each order. The estimate of
the total decay rates and diﬀerential capture rates as a function of the
neutron momentum will be presented in a comparison with the experimental
data. The decay rates will be investigated in the energy spectrum of the o
mitted neutrinos. Our results with the single nucleon currents look alread
y very promising and we hope for the improvement in the description of the
experimental data\, when dominant two-nucleon current operators are inclu
ded in our framework.\n\nReferences\n1. L. Marcucci et al.\, Phys. Rev. C8

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Jambul Gegelia (Forschungszentrum Jülich)\nWe sugge
st an extension of the one-nucleon sector of baryon chiral perturbation th
eory beyond the low-energy region. Applicability of the proposed approach
for higher energies is restricted to small scattering angles\, i.e. the ki
nematical region where the quark structure of hadrons cannot be resolved.
The main idea is to re-arrange the low-energy effective Lagrangian accordi
ng to a new power counting and for loop diagrams exploit the freedom of th
e choice of the renormalization condition. We generalize the extended on-m
ass-shell scheme for the one-nucleon sector of the baryon chiral perturbat
ion theory by choosing a sliding scale\, i.e. expand the physical amplitud
es around kinematical points far beyond the threshold. This requires an in
troduction of complex-valued renormalized coupling constants which can be
either extracted from experimental data\, or calculated using the renormal
ization group evolution of coupling constants fixed in threshold region.\n

ll provide sensitive probes to test the chiral anomaly and to study the or
igin and dynamics of chiral symmetry breaking in QCD confinement. On the o
ther hand\, a recently developed Jlab Eta Factory (JEF) experiment will me
asure various η decays. The experimental approach\, which combines a stat
e of the art PbWO4 crystal calorimeter\, a 12 GeV tagged photon beam\, and
recoil particle measurement\, will reduce the background by almost two or
ders of magnitude in the rare neutral modes compared to other competitors
in the world. Reduction of the uncertainty on the light quark mass ratio w
ill be achieved by increasing the world datasets for both the charged and
neutral η → 3π Dalitz distributions by a factor of ∼ 3 while control
ling systematic uncertainties with relatively flat detection efficiencies
over the phase space due to significantly boosted η’s. A low-background
measurement of the rare decay η → π0γγ will provide a clean\, rare
window into O(p6) in chiral perturbation theory\, while offering a unique
opportunity to search for a dark leptophobic gauge boson (B) in the 140-55
0 MeV mass range\, with sensitivity to the baryonic fine structure constan
t αB as low as 10−7. The SM forbidden decays\, such as η → 3γ and
η → 2π0 γ\, will allow the best direct constraints on new C violating
\, P conserving reactions. A overview of these experimental activities and
their physics impacts will be presented.\n\nhttps://agenda.infn.it/event/

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Haiyan Gao (Duke University\, Durham)\nAn important
goal in modern nuclear physics is to understand how one can describe the s
tructure of nuclei and nuclear forces from first principles of quantum chr
omodynamics (QCD)\, the fundamental theory describing the strong interacti
on. Few-nucleon systems provide important testing grounds for state-of-the
-art few-body calculations\, calculations based on effective field theorie
s\, and more recently predictions from lattice QCD. As such they are impor
tant laboratories to investigate nucleon-nucleon interaction and nuclear f
orces\, and connect them to QCD. With the availability of high-intensity\,
near monochromatic\, highly (linearly or circularly) polarized gamma rays
from The High Intensity Gamma ray Source (HIγS) facility at the Duke Uni
versity Free Electron Laser Laboratory\, new few-body experiments utilizin
g these unique features of the beam and polarized targets have been carrie
d out or are underway. In this talk\, I will discuss these experiments and
present latest results on few-body physics from HIγS.\n\nhttps://agenda.

\nI describe some of the many connections between lattice QCD and effectiv

also touching upon Symanzik effective theory and heavy quark effective th
eory. Ifirst discuss the ways in which effective theories have enabled and
supported lattice QCD calculations. Particular attention is paid to the i
nclusion of discretization errors\, for a variety of lattice QCD actions\,
into chiral effective theory. Several other examples of the usefulness of
chiral perturbation theory\, including the encoding of partial quenching
and of twisted boundary conditions\, are also described. In the second par
t of the talk\, I turn to results from lattice QCD for the low energy cons
tants of the two- and three-flavor chiral theories. I concentrate here on
mesonic quantities\, but a few results for nucleons are also mentioned. Fi
nally I discuss some recent preliminary lattice QCD calculations by the MI
LC Collaboration relating to the three-flavor chiral limit.\n\nhttps://age

quantities of interest at the precision frontier in particle physics requ
ire a good understanding of the low energy properties of the strong intera

theory methods usually involve two aspects: dependence on the quark masses
and dependence on the momenta. On the one hand\, I will review some of th
e work done in dispersion theory\, which led to an improved understanding
of the momentum dependence. On the other hand\, some of the results gained
by means of lattice methods concerning the quark mass dependence will be
discussed. As an illustrative example\, I plan to critically examine recen

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Alessandro Rizzo (INFN-Roma2)\nThe study of the hadr
onic spectrum is one of the most powerful tools to investigate the mechani
sm at the basis of quark confinement within hadrons. A precise determinati
on of the spectrum allows not only to asses the properties of the hadrons
in their fundamental and excited states\, but also to investigate the exis
tence of states resulting from alternative configurations of quarks and gl
uons configurations\, such as the glue-balls\, hybrid mesons and many-quar
ks configurations. The mesonic part of the spectrum can play a central rol
e in this investigation because several of the hybrid mesons are supposed
to have different quantum numbers with respect to standard q¯q states\, d
ue to the presence of explicit gluonic degrees of freedom. The hybrid meso
ns are expected to decay into multi-particles final states [1]\, requiring
high performances in terms of rate capability\, resolution and acceptance
for their detection. New-generation experiments are planned at Jefferson
Laboratory (JLAB) for which an unprecedented statistics of events with ful
ly reconstructed kinematics for large multiplicity decays will be availabl
e. A wide scientific program that will start in 2016 has been deployed for
meson spectrum investigation with the CLAS12 apparatus in Hall B at energ
ies up to 11 GeV. A key role in such program is played by the Forward Tagg
er [2]\, which will allow to extend the study of meson electro-production
to very low Q2\, in a quasi-real photo production kinematical region\, whe
re the production of hybrid mesons is expected to be favorite. The analysi
s required to extract the signal from hybrid states should go beyond the s
tandard Partial Wave analysis techniques and a new analysis framework is b
eing set up through the Haspect Network. The Haspect Network gather people
involved into theoretical and experimental hadronic physics all over the
world\, to investigate and propose new analysis models (such as the Szczep
aniak-Pennington model [3]) and new statistical techniques to unfold signa
l and background. The new analysis framework is being tested using the exi
sting CLAS data and results are projected to the CLAS12 performances\, sho
wing that the quest for hybrid exotic mesons is at reach.\n\nReferences\n1

on in chiral effective\nfield theory [1] will be reported and the phenomen
ological meson-exchange models (taking Julich model as an example) will be
mentioned as well. With such potentials and the distorted-wave Born appro

eraction on the mass spectrum in various reactions containing the antip p
pair\, e.g.\, J/ψ → γ¯pp\, ω¯pp\, π0¯pp and e+e−↔ p-bar p. It
turns out that the low-energy mass spectra up to excess energy of 100 MeV
for all the mentioned processes can be described by our treatment of the
final or initial state (p-bar p) interactions. In J/ψ → γ p-bar p the
quite prominent peak near p-bar p threshold is observed in BES experiment\
, and to describe it\, a bound state in isospin-1 1S0 is needed in our cal
culation [2]. The electromagnetic form factors of the proton in the time-l
ike region are also predicted [3]. The role of N-bar N intermediate states
played in the ractions e+e−→ multi-pions will be also discussed\, whi
ch concerns for the dip structure observed around N-bar N threshold in the

We investigate the neutral pion photoproduction on the proton near thresho

Delta degrees of freedom. This channel is specially sensitive to chiral dy

own the limits of the convergence of the chiral series for both the heavy

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Maxim Mai (HISKP\, University of Bonn)\nThe recoil r

elativistic effective field theory approach\, it is demonstrated that a sy
stematic perturbative expansion of the recoil corrections in the parameter
ξ=MK/mN is possible in spite of the fact that K-d scattering at low ener
gies is inherently nonperturbative due to the large values of the K¯N sca
ttering lengths. \n\nThe first-order correction to the K¯d scattering len
gth due to single insertion of the retardation term in the multiple-scatte
ring series is calculated. The recoil effect turns out to be reasonably sm
all even at the physical value of MK/mN approx 0.5. In the talk I will pre
sent these results as well as our more recent estimation of higher order c
orrections and the possibility to resum the recoil corrections to all orde

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Lloyd Cawthorne (University of Manchester)\nIn this
talk we will discuss the reaction p + γ → p + π0 and how it has been d
escribed using Chiral Perturbation Theory (χPT).\n\nSince the early 1990s
χPT has been applied to pion photoproduction. The first study was that o
f Bernard et al. [1\,2]\, detailing a O(p3) relativistic approach to descr
ibe the data from Mainz [3] and Saclay [4] from threshold\, Eγ ≈ 145 Me
V\, to Eγ ≈ 160 MeV. In 1996 and 2001 the same authors revisited this p
henomenon in O(p4) heavy baryon χPT [5\,6]. They improved on previous res
ults by fitting to data from threshold to Eγ ≈ 165 MeV. There has been
a resurgence of interest in this topic following the publication of the re
sults from the A2 and CB-TAPS collaborations at the Mainz Microtron (MAMI)
[7]. This data has reached unprecedented levels of accuracy from the thre
shold region through to the first excited hadronic state\, the ∆(1232).
This data was analyzed by Fernandez-Ramirez et al. [8] using rel. χPT and
HBχPT. They concluded that for energies above Eγ ≈ 170 MeV both the t
heories fail. All of the above studies acknowledge that the ∆(1232) is i
mportant but do not include it in their work. It was incorporated into a O
(p3) EOMS covariant theory late last year by Blin et al. [9]. Their analys
is showed how including the resonance improves the fit. Another aspect hig
hlighted by Fernandez-Ramirez et al. [10] is that calculations often limit
the angular momentum to P-waves\, when it is not fully understood if the
interference produced from D-wave states (or higher) are negligible. In ou
r discussion\, we will detail both the relativistic and the heavy baryon a
pproach.\n\nFurthermore\, we will show the effects of including the ∆(12
32)\, and how this improves theoretical descriptions of this phenomenon. F
inally\, we will discuss the consequences of truncating the angular-moment
um to P-waves\, compared to including D-waves and higher.\n\nReferences\n1

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Peter Stoffer (HISKP\, University of Bonn)\nThe anom
alous magnetic moment of the muon (g −2)µ has been measured and compute
d to very high precision of about 0.5 ppm. For more than a decade\, a disc
repancy has persisted between experiment and Standard Model prediction\, n
ow of about 3σ. The main uncertainty of the theory prediction is due to s
trong interaction effects. With the expected improvement of the input for
hadronic vacuum polarisation\, in a few years the subleading hadronic ligh
t-by-light (HLbL) contribution will dominate the theory error. While some
constraints from QCD exist\, the calculation of the HLbL contribution to t
he (g − 2)µ is plagued by a substantial model dependence. In this talk\
, I will present a dispersive approach to HLbL scattering\, based on the f
undamental principles of unitarity and analyticity [1] We have derived a L
orentz decomposition of the HLbL tensor that is fully gauge-invariant and
crossing symmetric [2\,3]. The scalar coefficient functions of this tensor
decomposition are free of kinematic singularities and zeros and fulfil Ma
ndelstam’s double-dispersive representation. The dispersive formalism de
fines unambiguously and in a model-independent way both the pion-pole and
the pion-loop contribution. Two-pion rescattering effects are included in
a partial-wave picture. Our dispersive formalism shows a path towards a da
ta-driven determination of the HLbL contribution to the (g − 2)µ [4].\n

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Xiu-Lei Ren (Beihang University/ IPN Orsay)\nUnderst
anding the nature of the Roper resonance is of particular interest. Its ma
ss\, for example\, shows a very unusual pattern: it is lower than the nega
tive parity state N(1535). Also\, the Roper is expected to play a role in
low energy observables due to its closeness to the nucleon and Delta(1232)
. \n\nWe report on a systematic study of the nucleon\, Delta(1232)\, and R
oper masses in heavy baryon chiral perturbation theory up to next-to-next-
to-leading order. For the first time\, the contributions due to the mixing
between the nucleon and the Roper allowed by chiral symmetry are taken in
to account. Recently\, several lattice QCD collaborations have reported so
me results on the Roper mass\, assuming this particle is always stable. A
chiral extrapolation of these data will also be shown as an application of
our results.\n\n* This work is done in collaboration with V. Bernard\, U.

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Xiu-Lei Ren (Beihang University/IPN Orsay)\nWe repor
t on a recent study of the ground-state octet baryon masses and sigma term
s in the covariant baryon chiral perturbation theory (ChPT) with the exten
ded-on-mass-shell (EOMS) renormalization scheme up to next-to-next-to-next
-to-leading order (N3LO). To take into account lattice QCD artifacts\, the
finite-volume corrections (FVCs) and finite lattice spacing discretizatio
n effects are carefully examined.\n\nWe performed a simultaneous fit of al
l the publicly available n_f = 2+1 lattice QCD data from the PACS-CS\, LHP
C\, HSC\, QCDSF-UKQCD and NPLQCD collaborations and found that the N3LO EO
MS BChPT can describe the data reasonably well with chi^2/d.o.f. = 1.0. Ou
r study showed that the various lattice simulations are consistent with ea
ch other. Although the finite lattice spacing discretization effects up to
O(a^2) can be safely ignored\, but the finite volume corrections cannot e
ven for configurations with M_phi L>4. As an application\, we predicted th
e octet baryon sigma terms using the Feynman-Hellmann theorem. In particul
ar\, the pion- and strangeness-nucleon sigma terms are found to be sigma_{
pi N} = 55(1)(4) MeV and sigma_{sN} = 27(27)(4) MeV\, respectively.\n\nh

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Johann Haidenbauer (IKP\, Forschungszentrum Juelich)
\nWe present results for the in-medium properties of a hyperon-nucleon (Y
N) interaction derived within chiral effective field theory (EFT) and fitt
ed to ΛN and ΣN scattering data. The single-particle potentials for the
Λ and Σ hyperons in nuclear matter are evaluated in a conventional G-mat
rix calculation\, and the Scheerbaum factor associated with the hyperon-nu
cleus spin-orbit interaction is computed [1]. We consider a leading-order
(LO) Y N interaction published in 2006 which accounts well for the bulk pr
operties of the ΛN and ΣN system [2]\, and our recent Y N potential deri
ved up to next-to-leading order (NLO) in chiral EFT which provides an exce
llent description of the available low-energy ΛN and ΣN cross sections a
nd the inelastic capture ratio at rest [3]. The predictions for the Λ sin
gle-particle potential are found to be in good qualitative agreement with
the empirical values inferred from hypernuclear data. A depth of about −
25 MeV is predicted by the NLO interaction and of about −36 MeV by the L
O potential. The Σ-nuclear potential turns out to be repulsive\, in agree
ment with phenomenological information\, with values around 15–20 MeV. E
mpirical information suggests that the Λ-nucleus spin-orbit interaction s
hould be rather weak. Therefore\, we investigate also the spin-orbit inter
action and\, in particular\, the role of the antisymmetric spin-orbit forc
e in the Y N system. The chiral EFT approach yields a potential that conta
ins\, besides pseudoscalar meson exchanges (π\, K\, η)\, a series of con
tact interactions with an increasing number of derivatives. In this approa
ch a contact term representing an antisymmetric spin-orbit force arises al
ready at NLO. It induces 1P1–3 P1 transitions in the coupled (I = 1/2)
ΛN–ΣN system. The low-energy constant associated with the contact term
could not be pinned down by a fit to the existing ΛN and ΣN scattering
data as found in Ref. [3] and\, thus\, it was simply put to zero in that w
ork. However\, it turns out that its value can be fixed from investigating
the properties of the Λ hyperon in nuclear matter and\, specifically\, i
t can be utilized to achieve a weak Λ-nuclear spin-orbit potential [1].\n

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Libertad Barrón-Palos (Universidad Nacional Autóno
ma de México\, Ciudad de Mexico)\nThe measurement of very small parity-vi
olating (PV) observables in few-nucleon systems\, where nuclear wave funct
ions are calculable\, is a via for understanding the hadronic weak interac
tion (HWI)\, which remains enigmatic due to the dominance of the strong in
teraction in hadronic systems and the non-perturbative nature of Quantum C
hromodynamics at low energies. Additionally\, the study of the strangeness
-conserving HWI could help to understand phenomena that have been observed
in the strangeness-changing sector and that cannot be explained in the fr
amework of existing theories\, like the dominance of the ∆I = 1/2 channe
l in the decay of kaons or the relative weak amplitudes in the non-leptoni
c decay of hyperons. The strangeness-conserving HWI also offers the possib
ility to study neutral currents at low energies\, since charged currents a
re suppressed for the ∆I = 1 nucleon-nucleon interactions. The ∆I = 1
channel\, accessible through the exchange of pions\, dominates the strong
interactions between nucleons at low energies. The availability of very in
tense neutron sources has allowed the development of experiments to measur
e PV effects in nuclear interactions between polarized slow neutrons and l
ight nuclei with sensitivity in the 10−8 level. A pioneer among these is
the NPDGamma experiment\, which last year completed data acquisition at t
he Spallation Neutron Source at the Oak Ridge Natiobal Laboratory to deter
mine the PV asymmetry in the spatial distribution of the gamma rays emitte
d in the capture of polarized cold neutrons by protons\, Aγ. This asymmet
ry is dominated by the ∆I = 1 3S1 − 3P1 parity-odd transition in the n
− p system\, therefore it is related to the weak coupling that characte
rizes the exchange of one pion in the HWI\, h1π. A statistical uncertaint
y of ∼ 1.3 × 10−8 was achieved in the determination of Aγ. I will de
scribe the experiment and discuss preliminary results\, as well as their c
omparison with theoretical calculations and previous experimental results.

he pion-nucleon sigma-term are fundamental quantities characterizing the e

act on nuclear physics. I will review various approaches to analyze pion-n

\nUnderstanding hadron structure from first principles is considered a mil
estone of hadronic physics and numerous experiments have been devoted to i
ts study\, starting with the measurements of the electromagnetic form fact
ors more than 50 years ago. Lattice QCD (LQCD) is a powerful tool for the
ab inition calculation of hadron observables that are either well determin
ed experimentally\, or not easily accessible in experiment. Thus\, LQCD ma
y provide input to phenomenology\, as well as new input for beyond the Sta
ndard Model Physics.\n\nProgress in the simulation of LQCD has been impres
sive\, mainly due to improvements in the algorithms\, development of new t
echniques and increase in computational power\, that have enabled simulati
ons to be carried out at parameters very close to their physical values. I
n this talk I will review developments in hadron structure with focus on r
ecent achievements in the evaluation of nucleon quantities\, such as the a
xial charge\, electromagnetic form factors\, the Dirac and Pauli radii\, t
he quark momentum fraction and the spin content of the nucleon\, in view o
f simulations close or at the physical value of the pion mass. I will also
highlight selected results on hyperon and meson form factors.\n\nhttps://

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Hidenori Fukaya (Osaka University)\nIn lattice QCD s
imulations\, there is a strong tendency to over-estimate the form factors
(and therefore\, under-estimate the related charge radii) of pions and oth
er hadrons. In fact\, the three major systematic in lattice QCD: finite la
ttice spacing a\, lack of chiral symmetry\, and finite volume all could co
ntribute to the over-estimation of the form factors. This can be easily un
derstood within the chiral effective theory\, as a distortion of the chira
l logarithm:\n\n ln M_pi^2 -> ln (M_pi^2+delta m^2
)\,\n\nwhere M_pi denotes the pion mass\, and delta m is the unphysical ma
ss scale induced by finite a\, and/or explicit chiral symmetry breaking\,
and/or finite lattice size.\n\nIn this talk\, we would like to focus on th
e finite volume effects using chiral perturbation theory (Ref. 1) and disc
uss how to avoid such an over-estimation of the (pion) form factors. We al
so present our recent lattice results with dynamical overlap (Ref. 2 and s
