Normalization of Currents in Lattice QCD

Conference paper
Part of the Acta Physica Austriaca book series (FEWBODY, volume 26/1984)


The definition and normalization of vector and axial vector currents in lattice QCD with Wilson’s fermion method [1] are discussed. A fuller account of this work, which was performed with Rob Groot and Jan Smit, and more references can be found in [2].
