Title: Meson electro-/photo-production from QCD

Abstract

I present the calculation of the $$\pi^+\gamma^\star\to\pi^+\pi^0$$ transition amplitude from quantum chromodynamics performed by the Hadron Spectrum Collaboration. The amplitude is determined for a range of values of the photon virtuality and the final state energy. One observes a clear dynamical enhancement due to the presence of the $$\rho$$ resonance. By fitting the transition amplitude and analytically continuing it onto the $$\rho$$-pole, the $$\rho\to\pi\gamma^\star$$ form factor is obtained. This exploratory calculation, performed using lattice quantum chromodynamics, constitutes the very first determination of an electroweak decay of a hadronic resonance directly from the fundamental theory of quarks and gluons. In this talk, I highlight some of the necessary steps that made this calculation possible, placing emphasis on recently developed formalism. In conclusion, I discuss the status and outlook of the field for the study of $$N\gamma^\star\to N^\star\to N\pi$$ transitions.
