  • We utilize a light-front relativistic quark model to predict the 3q core contribution to the electroexcitation amplitudes for the {Delta}(1232)P{sub 33}, N(1440)P{sub 11}, N(1520)D{sub 13}, and N(1535)S{sub 11} up to Q{sup 2} = 12 GeV{sup 2}. The parameters of the model have been specified via description of the nucleon electromagnetic form factors in the approach that combines 3{sub q} and pion-cloud contributions in the light-front dynamics.
  • We discuss the feasibility of a weak charged current experiment using a low energy electron beam. A first goal is to measure the Q^2 dependence of the axial-vector form factor g_a(Q^2). It can be measured model-independently and as robustly as for electromagnetic form factors from typical electron scattering experiments, in contrast to the methods used so far to measure g_a(Q^2). If g_a(Q^2) follows a dipole form, the axial mass can be extracted with a better accuracy than the world data altogether. The most important detection equipment would be a segmented neutron detector with good momentum and angular resolution that ismore » symmetric about the beam direction, and covers a moderate angular range. A high intensity beam (100 uA) is necessary. Beam polarization is highly desirable as it provides a clean measurement of the backgrounds. Beam energies between 70 and 110 MeV are ideal. This range would provide a Q^2 mapping of g_a between 0.01« less
  • We investigate the procedure which one uses to calculate the nucleon form factors, for both the electromagnetic and axial-vector currents, from bag models. We first point out that these form factors, as functions of q/sup 2/ alone, can in general be expressed in terms of several matrix elements, all of which are defined in the Breit frame. We then evaluate these Breit-frame matrix elements by assuming both (1) that the current operators can be approximated by the one-body quark contribution, and (2) that the nucleon wave functions at rest can be approximated by those given in the MIT bag model.more » Typical numerical results, as augmented by pionic corrections, provide a reasonable description of the experimental data.« less
  • In the frame of a phenomenological approach based on Compton-like Feynman amplitudes, we study the annihilation channel in antiproton nucleon collisions with production of a single charged or neutral pion and a lepton-antilepton pair. These reactions allow us to access nucleon and axial electromagnetic form factors in the time-like region and offer a unique possibility to study the kinematical region below the two-nucleon threshold. The differential cross section in an experimental setup where the pion is fully detected is given with explicit dependence on the relevant nucleon form factors. The possibility of measuring a heavy charged pion in the annihilationmore » channel is also discussed.« less
