Title: Off-shell photon light-cone wave functions of odd chirality in the effective low-energy theory

Abstract

The Lorentz decomposition of the light-cone distribution amplitudes is carried out up to twist four. The Wandzura-Wilczek-like relations associated with the transverse photon wave function are derived in the same way as for the rho meson. The on-shell and off-shell photon wave functions with odd chirality at the leading twist in the effective low-energy theory derived from the instanton vacuum of QCD are calculated. The explicit expression of the transverse photon wave function, {phi}{sub {gamma}}{sub perpendicular}(u,P{sup 2}), is worked out, and the twist-two parts of the other two photon wave functions, h{sub {gamma}}{sub parallel}{sup (s),twisttwo}(u,P{sup 2}) and h{sub {gamma}}{sub parallel}{sup (t),twisttwo}(u,P{sup 2}), are calculated based on the Wandzura-Wilczek-like relations. The dependence of the coupling f{sub {gamma}}{sup perpendicular}(P{sup 2}) and the light-cone photon wave functions with respect to the virtuality, P{sup 2}, are analyzed, and the end-point behavior as well as the middle-point behavior of the photon wave functions is discussed.

  • The leading- and higher-twist distribution amplitudes and light-cone wave functions of real and virtual photons are analyzed in chiral quark models. The calculations are performed in the nonlocal quark model based on the instanton picture of the QCD vacuum, as well as in the spectral quark model and the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model with the Pauli-Villars regulator, which both treat interaction of quarks with external fields locally. We find that in all considered models the leading-twist distribution amplitudes of the real photon defined at the quark-model momentum scale are constant or remarkably close to the constant in the x variable, thus aremore » far from the asymptotic limit form. The QCD evolution to higher momentum scales is necessary and we carry it out at the leading order of the perturbative theory for the leading-twist amplitudes. We provide estimates for the magnetic susceptibility of the quark condensate {chi}{sub m} and the coupling f{sub 3{gamma}}, which in the nonlocal model turn out to be close to the estimates from QCD sum rules. We find the higher-twist distribution amplitudes at the quark model scale and compare them to the Wandzura-Wilczek estimates. In addition, in the spectral model we evaluate the distribution amplitudes and light-cone wave functions of the {rho}-meson.« less
  • We study the behavior of light-cone wave functions, in coarse transverse lattice gauge theory, when one or more parton light-cone momenta are small. This probes the limit of hadron structure at large and small Bjorken x. Finite-energy boundary conditions on boundstates allow one to derive the analytic form of wave functions in this region. This leads to simple, universal predictions for the behavior of quark generalized parton distributions near their endpoints. For the first few meson wave functions at large N{sub c}, we give the simplest ansatz that incorporates all the boundary conditions.
  • The authors study nonlinear equations in two variables which arise in a theory of nontopological solitons. For simplicity, we limit our considerations to a relativistic mean-field description of two scalar particles which form a bound state. They present results for a model in which the constituents have a momentum-dependent mass whose form is motivated by nonperturbative QCD studies. They discuss the probability distribution of the squared four-momentum, k{sup 2}, of a particle of momentum k{sub {mu}}. They also introduce a definition of the constituent mass of our particles and comment on the relation of our model to the constituent quarkmore » model of hadron structure. The wave functions obtained have an interesting structure and are free of the on-mass-shell singularities which are present in solutions of conventional Bethe-Salpeter equations.« less
