Hadronic parity violation and effective field theory

  • B. R. Holstein
Review

Abstract

The history and phenomenology of hadronic parity violation is reviewed and a new model-independent approach based on effective field theory is developed. Possible future developments are discussed.

    Note that we are using here the standard convention in nuclear physics wherein the scattering length associated with a weak attractive potential is negative. It is common in particle physics to define the scattering length as the negative of that given here so that a weak attractive potential is associated with a positive scattering length.Google Scholar
