Vector meson dominance and g??? at finite temperature from QCD sum rules

Dominguez, C. A.; Fetea M.S.; Loewe, M.


A Finite Energy QCD sum rule at non-zero temperature is used to determine the q2- and the T-dependence of the ??? vertex function in the space-like region. A comparison with an independent QCD determination of the electromagnetic pion form factor F?, at T ? 0 indicates that Vector Meson Dominance holds to a very good approximation at finite temperature. At the same time, analytical evidence for deconfinement is obtained from the result that g???(q2,T) vanishes at the critical temperature Tc, independently of q2. Also, by extrapolating the ??? form factor to q2 = 0, it is found that the pion radius increases with increasing T, and it diverges at T = Tc. © 1997 Elsevier Science B.V.
