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 obtain low energy parameters without using resonance saturation. In the special case considered here, we have calculated the electromagnetic mass difference of pions using only the asymptotic QCD amplitude. The result, in very good agreement with experiment is $$\Delta m_\pi = 5.3 \pm 1.5MeV.$$

It is concluded that a precise determination of the four quark and gluon condensates is not possible unless a better theoretical knowledge of the high-energy QCD expansion and its truncation error is achieved.
Pion distribution amplitude extracted from the experimental data with the local duality sum rule
The photon-to-pion transition form factor is investigated using the form of the renormalon-based twist-four pion distribution amplitude (DA) in the framework of the light-cone local-duality QCD sum
Determination of QCD condensates frome+e− annihilation: anL∞ norm approach
Results of a new determination of QCD condensates frome+e−→Isospin 1 hadrons data are given. Using a new method to analyse these data, we show that the range of values for the gluon condensate and
A Relation Between Gluon Condensates from a Local QCD Sum Rule
A new approach to get relations between the gluon condensates is shown to be utilization of the local Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) sum rule via method of analytic continuation by duality in
Comparison between two strictly local QCD sum rules.
Two strictly local QCD sum rules, analytic extrapolation by conformal mapping and analytic continuation by duality, are developed and presented in full detail, and their effectiveness is demonstrated in the calculation of the topological susceptibility.
