Recent progress on QCD sum rule determinations of the light and heavy quark masses is reported. In the light quark sector a major breakthrough has been made recently in connection with the historical systematic uncertainties due to a lack of experimental information on the pseudoscalar resonance spectral functions. It is now possible to suppress this contribution to the 1% level by using suitable integration kernels in Finite Energy QCD sum rules. This allows one to determine the up-, down…

Finite Temperature QCD Sum Rules: a Review
The method of QCD sum rules at finite temperature is reviewed, with emphasis on recent results. These include predictions for the survival of charmonium and bottonium states, at and beyond the
Strange quark mass from sum rules with improved perturbative QCD convergence
A bstractThe strange quark mass is determined from a QCD Finite Energy Sum Rule (FESR) optimized to reduce considerably the systematic uncertainties arising from the hadronic resonance sector, as
An update of the HLS estimate of the muon g−2
A global fit of parameters allows us to pin down the Hidden Local Symmetry (HLS) effective Lagrangian, which we apply for the prediction of the leading hadronic vacuum polarization contribution to
Corrections to the SU(3) × SU(3) Gell-Mann-Oakes-Renner relation and chiral couplings $ L_8^r $ and $ H_2^r $
A bstractNext to leading order corrections to the SU(3) × SU(3) Gell-Mann-Oakes-Renner relation (GMOR) are obtained using weighted QCD Finite Energy Sum Rules (FESR) involving the pseudoscalar
The masses and residues of doubly heavy spin-3/2 baryons
The masses and residues of the spin-3/2 doubly heavy baryons are calculated within the QCD sum rules method. A comparison of our predictions with those existing in the literature is also made.
Upgraded breaking of the HLS model: a full solution to the τ−e+e− and ϕ decay issues and its consequences on g−2 VMD estimates
The muon anomalous magnetic moment aμ and the hadronic vacuum polarization are examined using data analyzed within the framework of a suitably broken HLS model. The analysis relies on all available
B meson decay constants fBc$$ {f}_{B_c} $$, fBs$$ {f}_{B_s} $$ and fB from QCD sum rules
A bstractFinite energy QCD sum rules with Legendre polynomial integration kernels are used to determine the heavy meson decay constant fBc$$ {f}_{B_c} $$, and revisit fB and fBs$$ {f}_{B_s} $$.


The strange quark mass from QCD sum rules
AbstractThe strange quark mass is calculated from QCD sum rules for the divergence of the vector as well as axialvector current in the next-next-to-leading logarithmic approximation. The
Up- and down-quark masses from finite-energy QCD sum rules to five loops
The up- and down-quark masses are determined from an optimized QCD finite-energy sum rule involving the correlator of axial-vector divergences, to five-loop order in perturbative QCD, and including
Charm-quark mass from weighted finite energy QCD sum rules
The running charm-quark mass in the MS scheme is determined from weighted finite energy QCD sum rules (FESR) involving the vector current correlator. Only the short distance expansion of this
