Title: Coupled π π , K K ¯ scattering in P -wave and the ρ resonance from lattice QCD

Abstract

In this study, we determine elastic and coupled-channel amplitudes for isospin-1 meson-meson scattering in $P$-wave, by calculating correlation functions using lattice QCD with light quark masses such that $$m_\pi = 236$$ MeV in a cubic volume of $$\sim (4 \,\mathrm{fm})^3$$. Variational analyses of large matrices of correlation functions computed using operator constructions resembling $$\pi\pi$$, $$K\overline{K}$$ and $$q\bar{q}$$, in several moving frames and several lattice irreducible representations, leads to discrete energy spectra from which scattering amplitudes are extracted. In the elastic $$\pi\pi$$ scattering region we obtain a detailed energy-dependence for the phase-shift, corresponding to a $$\rho$$ resonance, and we extend the analysis into the coupled-channel $$K\overline{K}$$ region for the first time, finding a small coupling between the channels.
