Understanding hadron structure from first principles is considered a milestone of hadronic physics and numerous experiments have been devoted to its study, starting with the measurements of the electromagnetic form factors more than 50 years ago. Lattice QCD (LQCD) is a powerful tool for the ab inition calculation of hadron observables that are either well determined experimentally, or not...

Polarizabilities are fundamental properties of the nucleon which 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 physics: from being the largest component...

We have recently completed a high-precision extraction of the proton spin-independent polarisabilities from the world database of low-energy Compton scattering experiments, within the framework of chiral effective field theory (χEFT) with pions, nucleons, and the Delta(1232) as explicit degrees of freedom . Our Baldin-sum-rule-constrained results are  α_p = 10.65 ± 0.35(stat) ±...
