7 π 0 TFF: Motivations Computed in multiple theoretical framework: Chiral perturbation theory [K. Kampf et al., EPJ C46 (2006), 191]: a = 2.90 ± Dispersion theory [M. Hoferichter et al., EPJ C74 (2014), 3180]: a = 3.07 ± Two-hadron saturation (THS) model [T. Husek et al., EPJ C75 (2015) 12, 586]: a = 2.92 ± All roughly agree on a value close to 3% Measured in experiment: Space-like momentum transfer (CELLO) [H. J. Behrend et al., Z. Phys. C49 (1991), 401]: a = 3.26 ± 0.26 stat 10 2 Most precise, but model dependent extrapolation Time-like momentum transfer, many old results (latest result from 1992, but MAMI [P. Adlarson et al., Phys. Rev. C 95, ]) Limited by statistics and theoretical uncertainties on radiative corrections No single clear evidence of non-zero value Nicolas Lurkin, 26/04/2017 7

8 Better model independent measurement is an important test of the theory models Important input for: π 0 TFF: Motivations Hadronic light-by-light scattering contribution to g 2 μ [A. Nyffeler, Phys. Rev. D 94, (2016)] 3σ discrepancy between theory and experiment for g 2 μ The HLBL contribution is the second largest source of uncertainty The π 0 contribution is about 25% of the HLBL uncertainty π 0 e + e decay rate [A. E. Dorokhov and M. A. Ivanov, Phys. Rev. D 75, ] 3.3σ discrepancy between theory and experiment in the Br Hypothesis: transition form factor extrapolated from CELLO data is not valid (there are others) Nicolas Lurkin, 26/04/2017 8

9 π 0 TFF: Radiative Corrections Corrections from NLO differential width encoded in d 2 Γ NLO d 2 Γ LO δ x, y = dxdy dxdy Mikaelian and Smith [Phys.Rev. D5 (1972) 1763] Husek, Kampf and Novotny [Phys.Rev. D92 (2015) 5, ] New δ 1γIR contribution Divergences cancel between δ virt and δ brem δ virt δ 1γIR δ brem Nicolas Lurkin, 26/04/2017 9

10 π 0 TFF: Radiative Corrections Corrections are of the same magnitude as TFF δ x, y x spectrum Nicolas Lurkin, 26/04/

11 π 0 TFF: Radiative Corrections δ brem is a 4-body decay π 0 e + e γγ discrepancies at low (Dalitz) photon energy New hybrid generator 3-body generator with δ 1γIR, δ virt radiative corrections and part of δ brem necessary to cancel divergences 4-body generator for remaining bremsstrahlung contribution At the generator level, selection based on a cut-off parameter 3 MC samples produced Main sample: blue Convergence test: red (agreement with main sample) green (not enough bremsstrahlung photons) γ energy spectrum Nicolas Lurkin, 26/04/

12 Measure the slope from a pure π D 0 sample from ~ K + decays Use the K ± π ± π 0 (K 2πD ) decay chain e + e γ 3-track vertex topology π 0 TFF: Selection Maximum three well reconstructed tracks Photon: single isolated cluster in LKr (away from (un)deflected track impact points) Remove track bremsstrahlung photons Nicolas Lurkin, 26/04/

13 π 0 TFF: Selection Particle identification from reconstructed kinematics 115 MeV/c 2 < M eeγ < 145 MeV/c MeV/c 2 < M π + π0 < 510 MeV/c2 Correct mass assignment Incorrect mass assignment Nicolas Lurkin, 26/04/
