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 http://journals.andromedapublisher.com/index.php/LHEP/article/view/136 Mon, 11 Nov 2019 22:26:21 +0000 First results of the KATRIN neutrino mass experiment and their consistency with an exotic 3 + 3 model http://journals.andromedapublisher.com/index.php/LHEP/article/view/139 <p>Although the first results of the KATRIN neutrino mass experiment are consistent with a new<br>improved upper limit of 1.1 eV for the effective mass of the electron neutrino, surprisingly they are<br>also consistent with an exotic model of the neutrino masses put forward in 2013 that includes one<br>tachyonic mass state doublet having m<sup>2</sup>&nbsp;∼ -0.2 keV<sup>2</sup>&nbsp;. A definnitive conclusion on the validity of the<br>model should be possible after less than one year of KATRIN data-taking.</p> Robert Ehrlich ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://journals.andromedapublisher.com/index.php/LHEP/article/view/139 Tue, 31 Dec 2019 00:00:00 +0000
