Towards lattice-assisted hadron physics calculations based on QCD n-point functions
2019 May 29
We present preliminary lattice results for the nonperturbative tensor structure of the vector and axial-vector quark-antiquark vertices in QCD. Our lattice calculations are for $N_f=2$ mass-degenerate Wilson fermion flavors whose quark mass values include an almost physical one. We compare our lattice results with the corresponding continuum solutions of the inhomogeneous Bethe-Salpeter equations in a rainbow-ladder truncation. We find similarities in the momentum dependencies of the form factors but also clear deviations at low momentum.
