Title: Chiral anomalies and effective vector meson Lagrangian beyond the tree level

Abstract

The decays ..pi../sup O/ ..-->.. ..gamma gamma.., rho ..-->.. ..pi gamma.., ..omega.. ..-->.. ..pi gamma.., ..omega.. ..-->.. 3..pi.. and ..gamma.. ..-->.. 3..pi.. are studied in the framework of the chiral invariant effective Vector Meson Lagrangian beyond the tree level. The standard Lagrangian is enlarged by including an infinite number of radial excitations which are summed according to the dual model. As a result tree level diagrams are modified by a universal form factor at each vertex containing off-mass-shell mesons, but still respecting chiral anomaly low energy theorems. These vertex corrections bring the tree level predictions into better agreement with experiment. The presence of the ..omega.. ..-->.. 3..pi.. contact term is confirmed but its strength is considerably smaller than at tree level.
