Axial resonances a$$_{1}$$(1260), b$$_{1}$$(1235) and their decays from the lattice
Abstract
The light axialvector resonances $$a_1(1260)$$ and $$b_1(1235)$$ are explored in Nf=2 lattice QCD by simulating the corresponding scattering channels $$\rho\pi$$ and $$\omega\pi$$. Interpolating fields $$\bar{q} q$$ and $$\rho\pi$$ or $$\omega\pi$$ are used to extract the swave phase shifts for the first time. The $$\rho$$ and $$\omega$$ are treated as stable and we argue that this is justified in the considered energy range and for our parameters $$m_\pi\simeq 266~$$MeV and $$L\simeq 2~$$fm. We neglect other channels that would be open when using physical masses in continuum. Assuming a resonance interpretation a BreitWigner fit to the phase shift gives the $$a_1(1260)$$ resonance mass $$m_{a1}^{res}=1.435(53)(^{+0}_{109})$$ GeV compared to $$m_{a1}^{exp}=1.230(40)$$ GeV. The $$a_1$$ width $$\Gamma_{a1}(s)=g^2 p/s$$ is parametrized in terms of the coupling and we obtain $$g_{a_1\rho\pi}=1.71(39)$$ GeV compared to $$g_{a_1\rho\pi}^{exp}=1.35(30)$$ GeV derived from $$\Gamma_{a1}^{exp}=425(175)$$ MeV. In the $$b_1$$ channel, we find energy levels related to $$\pi(0)\omega(0)$$ and $$b_1(1235)$$, and the lowest level is found at $$E_1 \gtrsim m_\omega+m_\pi$$ but is within uncertainty also compatible with an attractive interaction. Lastly, assuming the coupling $$g_{b_1\omega\pi}$$ extracted from the experimental width we estimate $$m_{b_1}^{res}=1.414(36)(^{+0}_{83})$$.

We investigate the B{yields}a{sub 1}(1260)(b{sub 1}(1235)){pi}(K) decays under the factorization scheme and find many discrepancies between theoretical predictions and the experimental data. In the treedominated processes, large contributions from colorsuppressed tree diagrams are required in order to accommodate the large decay rates of B{sup }{yields}a{sub 1}{sup 0}{pi}{sup } and B{sup }{yields}a{sub 1}{sup }{pi}{sup 0}. For B{sup 0}{yields}(a{sub 1}{sup +},b{sub 1}{sup +})K{sup } decays which are induced by b{yields}s transition, theoretical predictions on their decay rates are larger than the data by a factor of 2.8 and 5.5, respectively. Large electroweak penguins or some new mechanism are expected to explain themore »
