Functional approach to QCD finite-energy sum rules
A new method for the determination of the QCD condensates from low-energy hadronic data is proposed. It generalizes the usual QCD finite-energy sum rules, taking into account explicitely the
The electromagnetic mass difference of pions from asymptotic QCD
AbstractWe show how the asymptotic behaviour of an analytic amplitude can yield information on the amplitude at small space-like momenta. Applying this to QCD two-point functions, we are able to


Elastic Scattering Measurement of the Negative Pion Radius
A new measurement of the elastic scattering of 250-GeV/c negative pions by electrons provides form-factor results from 0.0368 = 0.439 +- 0.030 fm/sup 2/ or /sup 1/2/ = 0.663 +- 0.023 fm. Comparisons
Direct measurement of the. pi. /sup -/ form factor
We have measured the electromagnetic form factor of the charged pion by direct scattering of 100-GeV/c ..pi../sup -/ from stationary electrons in a liquid-hydrogen target at Fermilab. The deviations
Precise Relations between the Spectra of Vector and Axial-Vector Mesons
Two sum rules are derived, relating moments of the spectral functions of the vector and axial-vector currents. If it is assumed that the $\ensuremath{\rho}$ and $A1$ mesons dominate these moments,
Determination of the Axial-Vector Form Factor in the Radiative Decay of the Pion
The branching ratio for the decay $\ensuremath{\pi}\ensuremath{\rightarrow}e\ensuremath{\nu}\ensuremath{\gamma}$ has been measured in a counter experiment in which the ${e}^{+}$ was detected in a
