Abstract

Weinberg’s theorem for π-π scattering, including the Adler zero at threshold in the chiral limit, is analyticall proved for microscopic quark models that preserve chiral symmetry. Implementing Ward-Takahashi identities, the isospin 0 and 2 scattering lengths are derived in exact agreement with Weinberg’s low energy results. Our proof applies to alternative quark formulations including the Hamiltonian and Euclidean space Dyson-Schwinger approaches. Finally, the threshold π-π scattering amplitudes are calculated using the Dyson- Schwinger equations in the rainbow-ladder truncation, confirming the formal derivation.
