Heavy baryon-light vector meson couplings in QCD

The strong coupling constants of heavy baryons with light vector mesons are calculated in the framework of the light cone QCD sum rules using the most general form of the interpolating currents for the heavy baryons. It is shown that the sextet sextet, sextet-antitriplet and antitriplet-antitriplet transitions are described by one invariant function for each class of transitions. The values of the electric and magnetic coupling constants for these transitions are obtained. (C) 2011 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
