We address the issue of hadron deformation within the framework of lattice QCD. For hadrons with spin greater than 12 the deformation can be determined by evaluating the charge and matter distributions. Deviation of the nucleon shape from spherical symmetry is determined by evaluating the quadrupole strength in the transition γN → δ(1232) both in the quenched and in the unquenched theory.

Momentum dependence of the N to Δ transition form factors
We present a new method to determine the momentum dependence of the N to Δ transition form factors and demonstrate its effectiveness in the quenched theory at β = 6.0 on a 32 3  × 64 lattice. We

Towards charged hadron polarizabilities from four-point functions in lattice QCD
We show how to compute electromagnetic polarizabilities of charged hadrons using four-point functions in lattice QCD. The low-energy behavior of Compton scattering amplitude is matched to matrix


Hadron wave functions and the issue of nucleon deformation
Abstract Using gauge invariant hadronic two- and three- density correlators we extract information on the spatial distributions of quarks in hadrons, and on hadron shape and multipole moments within
Probing hadron wave functions in lattice QCD
Gauge-invariant equal-time correlation functions are calculated in lattice QCD within the quenched approximation and with two dynamical quark species. These correlators provide information on the
Matter and pseudoscalar densities in lattice QCD
The matter and the pseudoscalar densities inside a hadron are calculated via gauge-invariant equal-time correlation functions. A comparison is made between the charge charge and the matter density
Calculation and Interpretation of Hadron Correlation Functions in Lattice QCD
Abstract Several new developments in the calculation and interpretation of hadron density-density correlation functions are presented. The asymptotic behavior of correlation functions is determined
Pion photoproduction in the. delta. (1232) region and chiral bag models
We calculate pion photoproduction near the ..delta..(1232) resonance using a version of the chiral bag model based on an effective Lagrangian that reproduces correct pion-nucleon phenomenology
Baryon octet to decuplet electromagnetic transitions.
The electromagnetic transition moments of the SU(3)-flavor baryon octet to decuplet are examined within a lattice simulation of quenched QCD and the scalar quadrupole form factor exhibits a behavior consistent with previous multipole analyses.
D Waves in the Nucleon: A Test of Color Magnetism
The Becchi-Morpurgo selection rule that the decay ..delta -->..N..gamma.. is pure M1 was an early success of the quark model. We show that quark hyperfine interactions produce D waves in the nucleon
Multipole gammaN-Delta form factors and resonant photo- and electroproduction
Abstract Multipole form factors for the γN - Δ vertex are defined explicitly as the coefficients of appropriate kinematic covariants. The relations with other decompositions of the vertex are fully
Bethe-Salpeter amplitudes and density correlations for mesons with Wilson fermions.
We present an investigation of various gauge-invariant definitions of the qq Bethe-Salpeter (BS) amplitude for mesons in lattice QCD, and compare them to the Coulomb and Landau gauge BS amplitudes.
Q2 dependence of quadrupole strength in the γ*p → Δ+(1232) → pπ0 transition
Models of baryon structure predict a small quadrupole deformation of the nucleon due to residual tensor forces between quarks or distortions from the pion cloud. Sensitivity to quark versus pion
