The effective chiral Lagrangian from dimensionsix parity and timereversal violation
Abstract
We classify the parity and timereversalviolating operators involving quark and gluon fields that have effective dimension six: the quark electric dipole moment, the quark and gluon chromoelectric dipole moments, and four fourquark operators. We construct the effective chiral Lagrangian with hadronic and electromagnetic interactions that originate from them, which serves as the basis for calculations of lowenergy observables. The form of the effective interactions depends on the chiral properties of these operators. We develop a powercounting scheme and calculate within this scheme, as an example, the parity and timereversalviolating pion–nucleon form factor. We also discuss the electric dipole moments of the nucleon and light nuclei.  Highlights: •Classification of Todd dimensionsix sources based on impact on observables. •Building of the chiral Lagrangian for each dimensionsix source. •Calculation of the PTodd pion–nucleon form factor for each source. •Discussion of hadronic EDMs for each source and comparison with the theta term.

Using effective Lagrangians, we argue that any timereversalviolating but parityconserving effects are too small to be observed in flavorconserving nuclear processes without dramatic improvement in experimental accuracy. In the process we discuss other arguments that have appeared in the literature. {copyright} {ital 1996 The American Physical Society.}

Neutrinoless double beta decay in chiral effective field theory: lepton number violation at dimension seven
Here, we analyze neutrinoless double beta decay (0νββ) within the framework of the Standard Model Effective Field Theory. Apart from the dimensionfive Weinberg operator, the first contributions appear at dimension seven. We classify the operators and evolve them to the electroweak scale, where we match them to effective dimensionsix, seven, and nine operators. In the next step, after renormalization group evolution to the QCD scale, we construct the chiral Lagrangian arising from these operators. We then develop a powercounting scheme and derive the twonucleon 0νββ currents up to leading order in the power counting for each leptonnumberviolating operator. We arguemore »Cited by 1 
Study of parity and timereversal violation in neutronnucleus interactions
The parity and timereversal symmetries can be studied in neutronnucleus interactions. Parity nonconserving asymmetries have been observed for many pwave resonances in a compound nucleus and measurements were performed on several nuclei in the mass region of A{similar_to}100 and A{similar_to}230. The statistical model of the compound nucleus provides a theoretical basis for extracting meansquared matrix elements from the experimental asymmetry data, and for interpreting the meansquared matrix elements. The constraints on the weak mesonexchange couplings calculated from the compoundnucleus asymmetry data agree qualitatively with the results from fewbody and lightnuclei experiments. The tests of timereversal invariance in various experiments usingmore » 
Constraints on ParityEven Time Reversal Violation in the NucleonNucleon System and Its Connection to Charge Symmetry Breaking
Parityeven time reversal violation (TRV) in the nucleonnucleon interaction is reconsidered. The TRV {rho}exchange interaction on which recent analyses of measurements are based is necessarily also charge symmetry breaking (CSB). Limits on its strength {ovr g}{sub {rho}} relative to regular {rho} exchange are extracted from recent CSB experiments in neutronproton scattering. The result {ovr g}{sub {rho}}{le}6.7{times}10{sup 3} (95{percent} C.L.) is considerably lower than limits inferred from direct TRV tests in nuclear processes. Properties of a{sub 1} exchange and limit imposed by the neutron electric dipole moment are briefly discussed. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}
