Systematics in nucleon matrix element calculations
May 29, 2019
The current status of calculations of simple nucleon structure observables is reviewed, with a focus on the axial charge. A major challenge is the combination of an exponentially decaying signal-to-noise ratio and the need for large source-sink separations to eliminate excited-state contributions; efforts to understand and deal with this problem are the focus of the largest section of this review. Finite-volume effects and chiral extrapolation are also briefly discussed.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
