dc.description.abstractWe calculate the md-mu contribution to the mass splittings in baryonic isospin multiplets using SU(3) chiral perturbation theory and lattice QCD. Fitting isospin-averaged perturbation theory functions to PACS-CS and QCDSF-UKQCD Collaboration lattice simulations of octet baryon masses, and using the physical light-quark mass ratio mu/md as input, allows Mn-Mp, Mσ--Mσ+ and MΞ--MΞ0 to be evaluated from the full SU(3) theory. The resulting values for each mass splitting are consistent with the experimental values after allowing for electromagnetic corrections. In the case of the nucleon, we find Mn-Mp=2.9±0.4 MeV, with the dominant uncertainty arising from the error in mu/md. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.-
