In this talk, I review the description of low-energy pion-Compton scattering in chiral perturbation theory. At one-loop order, the effects due to the pion structure consist of the electric and magnetic polarizabilities (subject to the constraint $\alpha_\pi+\beta_\pi =0$) and a unique pion-loop correction interpretable as photon scattering off the ``pion-cloud around the pion''. The latter...

The charge radius Rp of the proton has so far been known only with a precision of about 1% from both electron scattering and precision spectroscopy of hydrogen.
We have recently determined Rp by means of laser spectroscopy of the exotic "muonic hydrogen" atom [1]. Here, the muon, which is the 200 times heavier cousin of the electron, orbits the proton with a 200 times smaller Bohr radius....

Recently the muonic hydrogen lamb shift has been measured with unprecedented accuracy [R. Pohl et al, Nature vol. 466, p. 213 (2010)], allowing for a precise determination of the proton radius. This determination is 5 sigma away from the previous CODATA value obtained from (mainly) the hydrogen lamb shift and the electron-proton scattering. Within an effective field theory formalism, I will...

Nucleons are complex systems of confined quarks and exhibit characteristic spectra of excited states. Highly-excited nucleon states are sensitive to details of quark confinement which is poorly understood within Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), the fundamental theory of strong interactions. Observing and understanding these higher-mass resonances is crucial, but they are difficult to observe...

The leading $1/N_c$ behaviour of Unitarised Chiral Perturbation Theory distinguishes the nature of the $\rho$ and the $\sigma$. At one loop order the $\rho$ is a ${\bar q}q$ meson, while the $\sigma$ is not. However, semi-local duality between resonances and Regge behaviour cannot be satisfied for larger $N_c$, if such a distinction holds. While the $\sigma$ at $N_c=3$ is inevitably dominated...

The replacement of a nucleon with a Λ hyperon leads to the production of Λ-hypernuclei. These strange systems are more stable than ordinary nuclei due to the compression of the nuclear core and to the addition of an extra binding energy from the Λ hyperon, which plays the so called “glue-like” role, being free from the Pauli blocking effect. In this respect, Λ-hypernuclei are better candidates...

The excitation spectrum of the nucleon consists of several overlapping resonances.

The light scalar meson problem which has arisen 50 years ago from the linear sigma model ( LSM), became central in the nonperturbative QCD since LSM could be its low energy realization. The scalar channels in the region up to 1 GeV is a stumbling block of QCD. The point is that not only perturbation theory fails here, but sum rules as well in view of the fact that isolated resonances are...

It has been realized for a long time that knowing the eta and eta^prime wave functions in terms of quark and gluon components probes our understanding of non-perturbative QCD dynamics.

The leading order interaction between a Goldstone boson and a matter field is universally dominated by the Weinberg-Tomozawa term.

Meson strong decay is a complex non-perturbative process that has not been described from QCD first principles yet. Instead, several phenomenological models have been developed to deal with this topic, being the 3P0 [1], the flux-tube [2] and the Cornell [3, 4] models the most popular.

measured target mass dependence of the production cross section can
be related to the in-medium $\phi$ width. Comparisons...

The K^- induced production of Lambda(1405) is investigated in K^- d to pi Sigma n reaction based on coupled-channels chiral dynamics, in order to discuss the mass of the Lambda(1405) and the prediction of two Lambda(1405) states made by the chiral unitary theory. We find that the K^-d to Lambda(1405)n process favors the production of Lambda(1405) initiated by the KbarN channel, which favors...

The omega->3 pion process is known to be dominated by the omega-rho-pi transition, followed by the decay of the rho meson into two pions. However, this does not deny the possibility of the need of a contact term, as can be seen in other works, to reproduce the experimental value of the decay width of the omega meson into three pions.
In this work, we revisit the omega->3 pion process under...

We first present the full one-loop calculation of meson-meson scattering in the framework of U(3) chiral perturbation theory with explicit resonance states in the Lagrangian. After the partial wave projection and resummation of the unitarity loops, we fit our theoretical formulas to the data to fix the free parameters and then calculate the resonance pole positions and residues, such as...

The discovery of the $J/\psi$ meson in 1974 was the experimental confirmation of the existence of the charmed quark introduced theoretically in 1970 by Glashow, Iliopoulus and Maiani to explain the cancellation of loop diagrams in $K^0$ weak decays. Consisting of a charmed $c$ quark and a $\bar c$ antiquark the $J/\psi$ particle became the starting point of a whole family of bound states...

We report on our recent results [1] in the study of the chiral extrapolation of the phase-shifts in elastic pion-pion scattering, using both standard and unitarized ChPT to one and two loops. In the standard ChPT approach, limited to low momenta, we study the S, P and D waves. For the vector phase shift we find a behavior that would seemingly contradict the results of lattice and other...
