# Electromagnetic vertex function of the pion at T>0

@article{vanderHeide2006ElectromagneticVF, title={Electromagnetic vertex function of the pion at T>0}, author={J. A. van der Heide and E. Laermann and Justus H. Koch}, journal={The European Physical Journal C - Particles and Fields}, year={2006}, volume={48}, pages={589-596} }

The matrix element of the electromagnetic current between pion states is calculated in quenched lattice QCD at a temperature of T=0.93 Tc. The non-perturbatively improved Sheikholeslami–Wohlert action is used together with the corresponding $\mathcal{O}(a)$ improved vector current. The electromagnetic vertex function is extracted for pion masses down to 360 MeV and momentum transfers Q2≤2.7 GeV2.
