Axial anomaly, quark-hadron duality and transition form factors
- 65 Downloads
We study the transition form factors of pseudoscalar mesons by means of anomaly sum rule — an exact relation which is a consequence of dispersive representation of axial anomaly. This sum rule (derived for the octet channel) and combined with the quark-hadron duality allows us to relate the transition form factors of η and η′ mesons. The notion of quark-hadron duality in connection with our approach is discussed and comparison with recent experimental data is done.
