This includes a confirmation of the validity of the previously&nbsp; introduced recommended&nbsp; polarizabilities. It is shown that the only meaningful approach to a prediction of the polarizabilities&nbsp; is obtained from nonsubtracted dispersion theory, where the appropriate degrees of freedon taken from other precise experimental data are taken into account. The present&nbsp; values of the recommended polarizabilities are \(\alpha_p=12.0\pm 0.5\), \(\beta_p=1.9\mp 0.5\), \(\alpha_n=12.6\pm 1.2\),&nbsp; \(\beta_n=2.6\mp 1.2\) in units of \(10^{-4}\)fm\(^3\) and \(\gamma^{(p)}_\pi =-36.4 \pm 1.5\),&nbsp; \(\gamma^{(n)}_\pi=+58.6\pm 4.0\), \(\gamma^{(p)}_0= -0.58\pm 0.20\), \(\gamma^{(n)}_0=+0.38\pm 0.22\) in units of \(10^{-4}\)fm\(^4\).</p> Martin Schumacher ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2019-11-11 2019-11-11 2 4 10.31526/lhep.4.2019.136
