Title: Chiral Approach to {phi} radiative decays

Abstract

Rare decays of the {phi} vector meson, to {pi}{pi}{gamma} and {pi}{eta}{gamma}, have been measured in the last few years. We give some background about why these decays are of interest in that they may provide some insights about the puzzling light scalar mesons. We then present our approach to studying strong and radiative decays involving light scalar mesons more generally, pointing out that it has the advantage of potentially relating many radiative decays at tree-level. Finally we discuss the rare radiative {phi} decays and comparison with recent experimental data in more detail.
