## Form factors of two-hadron states from a covariant finite-volume formalism

## Abstract

Here we develop a Lorentz-covariant version of the previously derived formalism for relating finite-volume matrix elements to $$\textbf 2 + \mathcal J \to \textbf 2$$ transition amplitudes. Furthermore, we give various details relevant for the implementation of this formalism in a realistic numerical lattice QCD calculation. Particular focus is given to the role of single-particle form factors in disentangling finite-volume effects from the triangle diagram that arise when $$\mathcal J$$ couples to one of the two hadrons. This also leads to a new finite-volume function, denoted $G$, the numerical evaluation of which is described in detail. As an example we discuss the determination of the $$\pi \pi + \mathcal J \to \pi \pi$$ amplitude in the $$\rho$$ channel, for which the single-pion form factor, $$F_\pi(Q^2)$$, as well as the scattering phase, $$\delta_{\pi\pi}$$, are required to remove all power-law finite-volume effects. The formalism presented here holds for local currents with arbitrary Lorentz structure, and we give specific examples of insertions with up to two Lorentz indices.
