N. Hermansson-Truedsson∗ Albert Einstein Center for Fundamental Physics, Institute for Theoretical Physics, Universität Bern, Sidlerstrasse 5, CH-3012 Bern Abstract We present a relativistic and model-independent method to derive structure-dependent electromagnetic finite-size effects. This is a systematic procedure, particularly well-suited for automatization, which works at arbitrarily high orders in the large-volume expansion. Structure-dependent coefficients appear as zero-momentum… Expand

Structure-Dependent Electromagnetic Finite-Size Effects
We present a model-independent and relativistic approach to analytically derive electromagnetic finite-size effects beyond the point-like approximation. The key element is the use of electromagneticExpand


Electromagnetic finite-size effects to the hadronic vacuum polarization
In order to reduce the current hadronic uncertainties in the theory prediction for the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon, lattice calculations need to reach subpercent accuracy on theExpand
Electromagnetic corrections to leptonic decay rates of charged pseudoscalar mesons: finite-volume effects
In Carrasco et al. we have recently proposed a method to calculate $O(e^2)$ electromagnetic corrections to leptonic decay widths of pseudoscalar mesons. The method is based on the observation thatExpand
Finite-Volume Electromagnetic Corrections to the Masses of Mesons, Baryons and Nuclei
Now that Lattice QCD calculations are beginning to include QED, it is important to better understand how hadronic properties are modified by finite-volume QED effects. They are known to exhibitExpand

In this paper, for the first time to our knowledge, a method is proposed to compute electromagnetic effects in hadronic processes, such as decays, using lattice simulations. The method can beExpand
