We present a first calculation of the first moments of gluon GPDs for a vector rho meson as it becomes unstable. We construct three-point functions in the forward limit using ‘optimized’ operators that interpolate a single state as well as a gluonic operator insertion. The two-point correlation functions have been constructed using the ‘distillation’ method. The correlators are calculated in...

In the isobar parametrization the three-particle states are populated via an interacting two-particle system (resonant or non-resonant), and a spectator. Using this formulation, we derive the isobar-spectator amplitude such that the three-body Unitarity is ensured exactly (arXiv:1706.06118).
Unitarity constrains the imaginary parts of such an amplitude, which determine the power-law...

The static potential V(r) between a static quark and a static antiquark separated by
a distance r is defined as the energy of the ground state of this system. As a consequence of confinement, the energy between the quark-antiquark pair is contained inside a color flux tube, the so called string. As soon as the energy is high enough, the gluonic string connecting the quarks will break due to...

One of the most challenging tasks in lattice calculations of hadronic form factors is the analysis and control of excited-state contaminations.
