Lattice QCD calculations of radiative transitions between hadrons have in the past been limited to processes of hadrons stable under the strong interaction. Recently developed methods for $1\to2$ transition matrix elements in a finite volume now enable the determination of radiative decay rates of strongly unstable particles. Our lattice QCD study focuses on the process $\pi \pi \to \pi \gamma^{*}$, where the $\rho$ meson is present as an enhancement in the cross-section. We use $2+1$ flavors… Expand

Resonances in Coupled-Channel Scattering
Excited hadrons are seen as resonances in the scattering of lighter stable hadrons like $\pi$, $K$ and $\eta$. Many decay into multiple final states necessitating coupled-channel analyses. RecentlyExpand
