Parity-violating πNN\pi NN coupling constant from the flavor-conserving effective weak chiral Lagrangian

Abstract

We investigate the parity-violating pion-nucleon-nucleon coupling constant hπNN1h^1_{\pi NN}, based on the chiral quark-soliton model. We employ an effective weak Hamiltonian that takes into account the next-to-leading order corrections from QCD to the weak interactions at the quark level. Using the gradient expansion, we derive the leading-order effective weak chiral Lagrangian with the low-energy constants determined. The effective weak chiral Lagrangian is incorporated in the chiral quark-soliton model to calculate the parity-violating πNN\pi NN constant hπNN1h^1_{\pi NN}. We obtain a value of about 10710^{-7} at the leading order. The corrections from the next-to-leading order reduce the leading order result by about 20~\%.Comment: 12 page
