Three flavour order parameters of chiral symmetry in low energy QCD
February 10, 2021
The current state of knowledge of the order parameters of the spontaneously broken chiral symmetry, the quark condensate and the pseudoscalar decay constant in the chiral limit, is briefly reviewed, based on available phenomenological fits and lattice QCD calculations. We argue that while the theory is pretty well understood in the two-flavour case, there is still a gap in the knowledge of the characteristics of the QCD vacuum in the three-flavour one. Our constraints for the three-flavour parameters obtained by a Bayesian statistical analysis of the decays of eta to three pions are presented. Possible implications of a new analysis of subthreshold parameters of pion-pion scattering is outlined.
