Different ``analytization'' procedures for the factorized pion form factor are discussed in comparison with the standard QCD perturbation theory at NLO. It is argued that demanding the analyticity of the exclusive amplitude as a \emph{whole}, entails insensitivity of the results on all scheme and scale-setting parameters, including the factorization scale. This enables us to develop an approach of optimized perturbation theory within the MS-bar scheme and to generalize the Analytic Perturbation… Expand

Ten years of the analytic perturbation theory in QCD
The renormalization group method allows improving the properties of the QCD perturbative power series in the ultraviolet region. But it ultimately leads to unphysical singularities of observables inExpand
On the running coupling constant in QCD
Abstract We try to review the main current ideas and points of view on the running coupling constant in QCD. We begin by recalling briefly the classic analysis based on the Renormalization GroupExpand
