Abstract
We present a calculation of the SU(3)breaking corrections to the hyperon transition vector form factors to O(p(4)) in heavybaryon chiral perturbation theory with finiterange regularization. Both octet and decuplet degrees of freedom are included. We formulate a chiral expansion at the kinematic point Q(2) = (MB1MB2)(2), which can be conveniently accessed in lattice QCD. The two unknown lowenergy lconstants at this point are constrained by lattice QCD simulation results for the Sigma() > n and Xi(0) > Sigma(+) transition form factors. Hence, we determine latticeinformed values of f(1) at the physical point. This work constitutes progress toward the precise determination of vertical bar Vus vertical bar from hyperon semileptonic decays.
