Baryon chiral perturbation theory A.D. 1994

  • Ulf -G. Meissner
Article

Abstract

In these lectures, the status of baryon chiral perturbation theory is reviewed. Particular emphasis is put on the two-flavor sector and the physics related to electromagnetic probes. I discuss in some detail the structure of the effective Lagrangian at next-to-leading order, the meaning of low-energy theorems in Compton scattering and pion photoproduction, and confront the chiral predictions with the existing data. Some remaining problems and challenges are outlined.
