Electric quadrupole and magnetic octupole moments of the light decuplet baryons within light cone QCD sum rules

The electric quadrupole and magnetic octupole moments of the light decuplet baryons are calculated in the framework of the light cone QCD sum rules. The obtained non-vanishing values for the electric quadrupole and magnetic octupole moments of these baryons show nonspherical charge distribution. The sign of electric quadrupole moment is positive for Omega(-). Xi*(-), Sigma*(-) and negative for Sigma*(+), which correspond to the prolate and oblate charge distributions, respectively. A comparison of the obtained results with the predictions of non-covariant quark model which shows a good consistency between two approaches is also presented. Comparison of the obtained results on the multipole moments of the decuplet baryons containing strange quark with those of Delta baryons shows a large SU(3) flavor symmetry breaking.
