A study of $\rho-\omega$ mixing in resonance chiral theory

26 Dec 2017  ·  Chen Yun-Hua, Yao De-Liang, Zheng Han-Qing ·

The strong and electromagnetic corrections to $\rho-\omega$ mixing are calculated using a SU(2) version of resonance chiral theory up to next-to-leading orders in $1/N_C$ expansion, respectively. Up to our accuracy, the effect of the momentum dependence of $\rho-\omega$ mixing is incorporated due to the inclusion of loop contributions... We analyze the impact of $\rho-\omega$ mixing on the pion vector form factor by performing numerical fit to the data extracted from $e^+e^-\rightarrow \pi^+\pi^-$ and $\tau\rightarrow \nu_{\tau}2\pi$, while the decay width of $\omega\rightarrow \pi^+\pi^-$ is taken into account as a constraint. It is found that the momentum dependence is significant in a good description of the experimental data. In addition, based on the fitted values of the involved parameters, we analyze the decay width of $\omega \rightarrow \pi^+\pi^-$, which turns out to be highly dominated by the $\rho-\omega$ mixing effect. read more
