Radiative corrections in Kπ + decays

Abstract

We calculate radiative corrections to the flavor-changing neutral current process Kπ + , both for charged and neutral kaon decays. While the soft-photon approximation is shown to work well for the muon channels, we discuss the necessity of further phase space cuts with electrons in the final state. It is also shown how to transfer our results to other decays such as ηγ + or ωπ 0 + .
