The axial anomaly contribution to generalized longitudinal-transverse polarizability $\delta_{LT}^{}$ is calculated within Regge approach. It is shown that the contribution from the exchange of the $a_1^{}(1260)$ Regge trajectory is nontrivial and might have the key role to explain the large difference between the predictions of chiral perturbation theory and the experimental data for the neutron $\delta_{LT}^{}$. We also present the prediction for the proton $\delta_{LT}^{}$, which will be… Expand

The proton size puzzle: experiment vs theory.
Current status of the proton size puzzle from experimental and theoretical points of view is briefly discussed. The interest to these studies is primarily related to experiments conducted by theExpand
