QCD sum rules concepts and pion's structure


Abstract: We study the pion's structure in terms of the leading twist pion distribution amplitude, the electromagnetic form factor, and the transition pion-photon form factor in framework of QCD sum rules with nonlocal condensate and light-cone sum rules. The condensate's nonlocality effects are shown to be important. A global fit of pion distribution amplitude to the data from different collaborations (CELLO, CLEO, BaBar) on the pion-photon transition form factor is carried out using light-cone sum rules. The analysis includes the next-to-leading QCD radiative corrections and the twist-four contributions, while the main next-to-next-to-leading term and the twist-six contribution are taken into account in the form of theoretical uncertainties.
