The evolution of electromagnetic pion production is presented. The early experiments verified that the reaction mechanism of pion production in nuclei was understood; some open issues which can now be studied with CW electron beams are discussed. Emphasis is given to the present studies which measure meson production from the nucleon. The impact of spontaneously broken chiral symmetry and Goldstone’s theorem on pion-nucleon physics is sketched. Present and future experiments to measure quark mass effects such as isospin breaking are described. The role of the new generation of beam and target polarization experiments are stressed, including such future possibilities at Bates as virtual photon tagging. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    The parity-violating pion-nucleon coupling constant for the neutral currents of electroweak interaction is calculated by the method of QCD sum rules. In doing this, operators up to dimension 5 are retained in the operator-product expansion for the correlation function in an external pion field....

    The parameters of the pion-electroproduction peak in the cross section for inclusive electron scattering on ¹H and d target nuclei are determined for various kinematical conditions of measurements. It is shown that, for low 4-momentum transfers, 0.030 ≤ Q² ≤ 0.086 (GeV/c)²,...

    Recently we have succeeded in observing the 1s and 2p bound pionic states in [sup 205]Pb nucleus as well separated peaks in the excitation spectrum of the [sup 206]Pb(d,[sup 3]He) reaction. The observed spectrum agreed quite well with the theoretical prediction where the formation cross section...

    The existing models of baryons usually predict considerably more resonance (three or more in number) than it was found by investigation of elastic pion-nucleon scattering. This disagreement invites further investigation of the pion-nucleon interaction and among other things the measurement of...

    In the process e[sup -]e[sup +]→e[sup -]e[sup +]π[sup +]π[sup -] the two-pion system is produced via two mechanisms—two-photon and bremsstrahlung ones. The first of them gives a C-even system, the second one—C-odd. We study the charge asymmetry of pions in the...
