1 Nucleon Axial and Nucleon-to-Delta Axial Transition Form Factors from Lattice QCD A. Tsapalis Institute of Accelerating Systems and Applications University of Athens in collaboration with C. Alexandrou (Univ. of Cyprus) G. Koutsou (Univ. of Cyprus) Th. Leontiou (Univ. of Cyprus) J. W. Negele (MIT)

Liu, S.J. Dong, T. Draper, W. Wilcox) recent study by LHPC+MILC, arXiv:

4 Pseudoscalar Form Factor & PCAC PCAC in hadron world Axial WT identity in QCD pseudoscalar current πΝΝ form factor defined via connected to πΝΝ strong coupling constant g πΝΝ = G πΝΝ (m π 2 ) PCAC

5 Pion Pole dominance & GT relations Pion pole on RHS constraints the induced pseudoscalar and leads to Goldberger-Treiman relation at q 2 = 0 satisfy to 5% accuracy from low energy πΝΝ dynamics also fixes the ratio

6 Nucleon to Δ(1232) Axial Transition Form Factors transverse part Adler parameterization small ≈ 0 dominant FFs C 5 A analogous to G A (q 2 )C 6 A analogous to G P (q 2 ) not much known experimentally electroproduction experiments at JLab will measure N to Δ parity violating asymmetry connected to C 5 A theoretical arguments indicate that C 3 A, C 4 A are small

7 Lattice study in PRL 98, (2006) established smallness of C 3 A and C 4 A, predicted q 2 dependence of dominant form factors C 5 A and C 6 A

8 Pseudoscalar πΝΔ Form Factor & PCAC πΝΔ form factor defined via connected to πΝΔ strong coupling constant g πΝΔ = G πΝΔ (m π 2 ) PCAC Non-diagonal Goldberger-Treiman relation Pion pole dominance relates:..and fixes the ratio

9 Evaluating Form Factors from Lattice QCD measure 3-point-functions of axial & pseudoscalar currents form ratios where t- and Z- dependence cancels determine the optimal linear combination of 3pts kinematics: X maximal number of momentum vectors contribute in rotationally symmetric fashion

10 optimizing the measurement sequential inversions through the sink X only one sequential inversion for G A (Q 2 ), G P (Q 2 ), G πNN (Q 2 ) all operators and momentameasured at small cost look for plateau in t 1 / Smear source & sink quarks to damp fast the excited states simultaneous overconstrained analysis of all data maximal accuracy for the form factors – Q 2 dependence
