Power counting of contact-range currents in effective field theory.

Abstract

We analyze the power counting of two-body currents in nuclear effective field theories (EFTs). We find that the existence of nonperturbative physics at low energies, which is manifest in the existence of the deuteron and the ^{1}S_{0} NN virtual bound state, combined with the appearance of singular potentials in versions of nuclear EFT that incorporate… (More)
