    We present a brief account of the developments in the description of light meson resonances using unitarized extensions of the Chiral Perturbation Theory series, both in energy and temperature. In particular, we describe how these methods have been recently shown to describe simultaneously the...

    The unitarization of the amplitude for the decay process K → ππ and allowance for the rescattering of final-state pions in the decay process K → πππ make it possible to evaluate, by using the parameters extracted from data on K → 2π decays, the K...

    We review our recent one-loop calculation of all the two meson scattering amplitudes within SU(3) Chiral Perturbation Theory, i.e. with pions, kaons and eras. By unitarizing these amplitudes we are able to generate dynamically the lightest resonances in meson-meson scattering. We thus obtain a...

    We extend the quark-meson coupling (QMC) model to incorporate chiral symmetry. The relationship between the QMC model and chiral perturbation theory is also discussed. The nuclear central potential is modified by the effect of internal structure of the nucleon.

    We study the strange and non-strange quark mass dependence of the parameters of the f0(600), κ(800), ρ(770) and K*(892) resonances generated from elastic meson-meson scattering using unitarized one-loop Chiral Perturbation Theory. We fit simultaneously all experimental scattering data up...

    We review the large Nc behavior of light scalar and vector resonances generated from unitarized meson-meson scattering amplitudes at one loop in Chiral Perturbation Theory. The vectors nicely follow the behavior expected for qq states, whereas scalar mesons do not. This suggests that the main...
