ABSTRACT
The decay B→γℓνℓ receives a numerically large soft-overlap contribution which is formally next-to-leading order in the expansion in the inverse photon energy, 1/Eγ. We point out that this contribution can be calculated with little model-dependence making use of dispersion relations and duality, in full analogy with the similar contribution to the γγ*→π transition form factor. This result strengthens the case for the utility of the B→γℓνℓ decay for constraining the B-meson distribution amplitude and determining its most important parameter, the inverse moment λB.

    The transversity Generalized Parton Distributions (tGPDs) and related transversity form factors of the pion are evaluated in chiral quark models, both local (Nambu-Jona-Lasinio) and nonlocal, involving a momentum-dependent quark mass. The obtained tGPDs satisfy all a priori formal requirements,...
