Abstract

Current-algebra and quark-model methods are used to investigate hyperon and kaon transition amplitudes for various contributions to the weak nonleptonic Hamiltonian of the Weinberg-Salam model. Substantial enhancements are found for matrix elements of certain operators which are induced by quantum-chromodynamic radiative corrections and contain right-handed currents. These operators improve the agreement with experiment in most cases, although problems remain in P-wave hyperon amplitudes. In this approach, the ΔI=1/2 rule is understandable in both kaons and baryons under plausible assumptions.
