Title: Scalar form factor of the proton with light-cone QCD sum rules

Abstract

We calculate the scalar form factor of the proton in the framework of the light-cone QCD sum rules approach with the three valence quark light-cone distribution amplitudes up to twist-6 and observe the scalar form factor {sigma}(t=-Q{sup 2}) at intermediate and large momentum transfers Q{sup 2}>2 GeV{sup 2} has significant contributions from the end point (or soft) terms. The numerical values for the {sigma}(t=-Q{sup 2}) are compatible with the calculations from the chiral quark model and lattice QCD at the region Q{sup 2}>2 GeV{sup 2}.

  • We present an improved calculation of the B{yields}K transition form factor with a chiral current in the QCD light-cone sum rule approach. Under the present approach, the most uncertain twist-3 contribution is eliminated. And the contributions from the twist-2 and the twist-4 structures of the kaon wave function are discussed, including the SU{sub f}(3)-breaking effects. One-loop radiative corrections to the kaonic twist-2 contribution together with the leading-order twist-4 corrections are studied. The SU{sub f}(3)-breaking effect is obtained, (F{sub +}{sup B{r_reversible}}{sup K}(0)/F{sub +}{sup B{r_reversible}}{sup {pi}}(0))=1.16{+-}0.03. By combining the light-cone sum rule results with the newly obtained perturbative QCD results that havemore » been calculated up to O(1/m{sub b}{sup 2}) by Wu, Huang, and Fang [Eur. Phys. J. C 52, 561 (2007)], we present a consistent analysis of the B{yields}K transition form factor in the large and intermediate energy regions.« less
  • Electromagnetic form factors of the transition {pi} + {gamma}{sub virt.} {r_arrow} A{sub 1} are calculated by QCD sum rules technique with the description of the pion in terms of the set of wave functions of increasing twist. Obtained results are compared with standard QCD sum rule calculations.
  • We investigate the electromagnetic form factors of the {rho} meson in light cone QCD sum rules. We find that the ratio of the magnetic and charge form factors is larger than 2 at all values of Q{sup 2} (Q{sup 2}{>=}0.5 GeV{sup 2}). The values of the individual form factors at fixed values of Q{sup 2} predicted by the light cone QCD sum rules are quite different compared to the results of other approaches. These results can be checked in the future, when more precise data on {rho} meson form factors is available.
  • Light-cone sum rules for the {lambda}{sub b}{yields}p, {lambda} transition form factors are derived from the correlation functions expanded by the twist of the distribution amplitudes of the {lambda}{sub b} baryon. In terms of the {lambda}{sub b} three-quark distribution amplitude models constrained by the QCD theory, we calculate the form factors at small momentum transfers and compare the results with those estimated in the conventional light-cone sum rules (LCSR) and perturbative QCD approaches. Our results indicate that the two different versions of sum rules can lead to the consistent numbers of form factors responsible for {lambda}{sub b}{yields}p transition. The {lambda}{sub b}{yields}{lambda}more » transition form factors from LCSR with the asymptotic {lambda} baryon distribution amplitudes are found to be almost 1 order larger than those obtained in the {lambda}{sub b}-baryon LCSR, implying that the preasymptotic corrections to the baryonic distribution amplitudes are of great importance. Moreover, the SU(3) symmetry breaking effects between the form factors f{sub 1}{sup {lambda}{sub b}}{sup {yields}}{sup p} and f{sub 1}{sup {lambda}{sub b}}{sup {yields}}{sup {lambda}} are computed as 28{sub -8}{sup +14}% in the framework of {lambda}{sub b}-baryon LCSR.« less
  • We provide a theoretical update of the calculations of the {pi}{sup 0}{gamma}{sup *}{gamma} form factor in the light cone sum rules framework, including up to six polynomials in the conformal expansion of the pion distribution amplitude and taking into account twist-six corrections related to the photon emission at large distances. The results are compared with the calculations of the B{yields}{pi}l{nu} decay and pion electromagnetic form factors in the same framework. Our conclusion is that the recent BABAR measurements of the {pi}{sup 0}{gamma}{sup *}{gamma} form factor at large momentum transfers [B. Aubert et al. (The BABAR Collaboration), Phys. Rev. D 80,more » 052002 (2009)] are consistent with QCD, although they do suggest that the pion distribution amplitude may have more structure than usually assumed.« less
