Electromagnetic Perturbations on πNN and πNN* Couplings in the Chew-Low Model: General Features


Electromagnetic perturbations on πNN and πNN* couplings are studied in the N-N* reciprocal bootstrap model. In the present paper we confine ourselves to rather general features, making the linear-D approximation for simplicity. There are several self-consistent coupling shifts, much as in the analogous SU(3) reciprocal bootstrap. It is shown that, except for even-J exchanges in the t channel, the "driving terms" are orthogonal to these self-consistent coupling shifts. Thus, as in the SU(3) case, no simple predictions can be made for coupling shifts in the linear-D approximation.
