Nucleon Charges and Electromagnetic Form Factors from 2+1+1-Flavor
Lattice QCD

Tanmoy Bhattacharya, Saul D. Cohen, Rajan Gupta, Anosh Joseph, Huey-Wen Lin
We present lattice-QCD results on the nucleon isovector axial, scalar and tensor charges, the isovector electromagnetic Dirac and Pauli form factors, and the connected parts of the isoscalar charges. The calculations have been done using two ensembles of HISQ lattices generated with 2+1+1 dynamical flavors at a lattice spacing of 0.12 fm and with light-quark masses corresponding to pions with masses 310 and 220 MeV. We perform a systematic study including excited-state degrees of freedom and examine the dependence of the extracted nucleon matrix elements on source-sink separation. This study demonstrates with high-statistics data that including excited states in the analysis removes contamination that would lead to systematic error in the absence of data at multiple separations. We also determine the renormalization constants of the associated quark bilinear operators in the RI-sMOM scheme and make comparisons of our renormalized results with previous dynamical-lattice calculations.
