Nucleon isovector charges from physical mass domain-wall QCD
2019 December 05
Systematics in nucleon isovector vector, $g_V$, and axialvector, $g_A$, charges calculated on a 2+1-flavor dynamical domain-wall-fermions (DWF) ensemble at physical mass jointly generated by RIKEN-BNL-Columbia (RBC) and UKQCD Collaborations with lattice cut off of 1.730(4) GeV, are analyzed. Both are calculated with about a percent or less statistical errors. A few standard-deviation systematics seen in vector charge is consistent with possible $O(a^2)$ discretization error through small excited-state contamination. Axialvector charge is found with three to nine standard-deviation systematic deficit, compared with experiments, depending on calculation methods.
