Kaons are a laboratory where a broad physics programme can be addressed. From the study of fundamental symmetries to the exploration of the hadron structure, from the search for phenomena beyond the Standard Model to the comprehension of the simplest hadronic states, many investigations profit from the remarkably clean theoretical and experimental environment provided by kaons. NA62 is a new...

I will review some recent activities in mesonic chiral perturbation theory. Our present knowledge of low-energy constants in the strong sector up to and including next-to-next- to-leading order will be discussed. I will also assess the present status of CKM unitarity. Further topics are pion polarizabilities, kaon and η decays.

There has been recent, significant, advances in the determination of the meson spectrum of QCD. Current efforts have focused on the development and application of finite-volume formalisms that allow for the determination of scattering amplitudes as well as resonance behaviour in coupled channel systems. I will review some of these recent developments, and demonstrate the viability of the...
