Lorentz covariance of current matrix elements in a soliton model
Through the use of the semiclassical approximation we compute the diagonal matrix elements of the topologically conserved current in the {ital cphi}{sup 4} kink field theory within the onesoliton sector. We demonstrate the Lorentz covariance of these matrix elements within the canonical Hamiltonian framework of Christ and Lee. We also discuss the advantages and disadvantages of two choices of collective variables for representing the underlying quantum fields in terms of computing the diagonal matrix elements of this current operator. 
SU(3) breaking in neutral current axial matrix elements and the spin content of the nucleon
We examine the effects of SU(3) breaking in the matrix elements of the flavordiagonal axialvector currents between octet baryon states. Our calculations of K, {eta}, and {pi} loops indicate that the SU(3) breaking may be substantial for some matrix elements and at the very least indicate large uncertainties. In particular, the strange axial matrix element in the proton determined from the measurements of g{sub 1}(x) is found to have large uncertainties and might yet be zero. We estimate the strange axial matrix element in the proton to be {minus}0.35{approx_lt}{Delta}s{approx_lt}0 and the matrix element of the flavorsinglet current in the protonmore » 
Comments on the isoscalar axialvector current matrix elements
Assuming the Cabibbo invariance of the hadronic neutral current, matrix elements of the isoscalar axialvector current are derived using SU(3) for the octet part and SU(6) or the nonrelativistic quark model for the unitarysinglet part. This is meant to clarify the confusion found in the literature on whether one should use SU(3) or the nonrelativistic quark model in deriving those matrix elements.
