Title: Anatomy of the ρ resonance from lattice QCD at the physical point

Abstract

We propose a strategy to access the $$q\bar{q}$$ component of the ρ resonance in lattice QCD. Through a mixed action formalism (overlap valence on domain wall sea), the energy of the $$q\bar{q}$$ component is derived at different valence quark masses, and shows a linear dependence on $${m}_{{\rm{\pi }}}^{2}$$. The slope is determined to be $${c}_{1}=0.505(3)\,{{\rm{GeV}}}^{-1}$$, from which the valence $${\rm{\pi }}{\rm{\rho }}$$ sigma term is extracted to be $${\sigma }_{{\rm{\pi }}{\rm{\rho }}}^{(\mathrm{val})}=9.82(6)$$ MeV using the Feynman-Hellman theorem. At the physical pion mass, the mass of the $$q\bar{q}$$ component is interpolated to be $${m}_{{\rm{\rho }}}=775.9\pm 6.0\pm 1.8\,{\rm{MeV}}$$, which is close to the ρ resonance mass. We also obtain the leptonic decay constant of the $$q\bar{q}$$ component to be $${f}_{{{\rm{\rho }}}^{-}}=208.5\pm 5.5\pm 0.9\,{\rm{MeV}}$$, which can be compared with the experimental value $${f}_{{\rm{\rho }}}^{{\rm{\exp }}}\approx 221\,{\rm{MeV}}$$ through the relation $${f}_{{\rm{\rho }}}^{{\rm{\exp }}}=\sqrt{{Z}_{{\rm{\rho }}}}{f}_{{{\rm{\rho }}}^{\pm }}$$, with $${Z}_{{\rm{\rho }}}\approx 1.13$$ being the on-shell wavefunction renormalization of ρ owing to the $${\rm{\rho }}-{\rm{\pi }}$$ interaction. We emphasize that $${m}_{{\rm{\rho }}}$$ and $${f}_{{\rm{\rho }}}$$ of the $$q\bar{q}$$ component, which are obtained for the first time from QCD, can be taken as the input parameters of ρ in effective field theory studies where ρ acts as a fundamental degree of freedom.
