Abstract

The use of SU(3) chiral perturbation theory in the analysis of low energy meson-baryon interactions is discussed. It is emphasized that short distance effects, arising from propagation of Goldstone bosons over distances smaller than a typical hadronic size, are modeldependent and can lead to a lack of convergence in the SU(3) chiral expansion if they are… (More)
