Odd- and even-parity charmed mesons revisited in heavy hadron chiral perturbation theory

13 Jul 2016  ·  Alhakami Mohammad H. ·

We study the masses of the low-lying charmed mesons within the framework of heavy-hadron chiral perturbation theory. We work to third order in the chiral expansion, where meson loops contribute... In contrast to previous approaches, we use physical meson masses in evaluating these loops. This ensures that their imaginary parts are consistent with the observed widths of the D-mesons. The lowest odd- and even-parity, strange and nonstrange mesons provide enough constraints to determine only certain linear combinations of the low-energy constants in the effective Lagrangian. We comment on how lattice QCD could provide further information to disentangle these constants. read more
