The form factors of the nucleon in a finite simulation volume — •Ludwig Greil, Thomas R. Hemmert, and Andreas Schäfer — Institut für Theoretische Physik, Universität Regensburg
Lattice QCD simulations for the form factors of the nucleon have now reached the regime of light quark masses. Surprisingly, the observed trend of the lattice data does not uniformly point towards the known values at the physical point (see e.g. ref.). However, within the framework of baryon chiral perturbation theory (ChPT) the non-linear quark-mass dependence in these observables near the physical point is believed to be well understood .
It is our hypothesis that corrections from the finite simulation volume,
which have not been taken into account systematically e.g. in the analysis
of ref., may be responsible for the observed behaviour of the lattice
data. In this talk we present first results of an ongoing finite volume
study  for the form factors of the nucleon. The goal is to calculate the
finite volume corrections to next-to-leading one-loop order in ChPT for the
case of 2 light quark flavors. In particular, we present new results for the quark-mass dependence of the magnetic moments of the nucleon as a function of the box length L.
