A new representation of the Adler function for lattice QCD    [PDF]

Anthony Francis, Benjamin Jaeger, Harvey B. Meyer, Hartmut Wittig
We address several aspects of lattice QCD calculations of the hadronic vacuum polarization and the associated Adler function. We implement a representation derived previously which allows one to access these phenomenologically important functions for a continuous set of virtualities, irrespective of the flavor structure of the current. Secondly we present a theoretical analysis of the finite-size effects on our particular representation of the Adler function, based on the operator product expansion at large momenta and on the spectral representation of the Euclidean correlator at small momenta. Finally, an analysis of the flavor structure of the electromagnetic current correlator is performed, where a recent theoretical estimate of the Wick-disconnected diagram contributions is rederived independently and confirmed.
