Chiral expansion of moments of quark distributions    [PDF]

P. E. Shanahan, A. W. Thomas, R. D. Young
We present formulae for the chiral extrapolation of spin-dependent and spin-independent moments of quark distributions of octet baryons, including loop corrections and counterterms to leading non-analytic order. This analysis allows for isospin breaking, and may be used for the chiral extrapolation of both (2+1)- and (1+1+1)-flavor lattice QCD results. An example of such an application is given, with the extrapolation formulae applied to recent (2 + 1)-flavor QCDSF/UKQCD Collaboration lattice results for the first spin-independent and first two spin-dependent Mellin moments.
