Description

Besides connecting the pion-nucleon and the kaon-nucleon amplitudes to the hadron spectrum, nucleon sigma terms play an important role in the direct detection of Dark Matter. A lattice computation will be outlined, preliminary results for the up-down and strange sigma terms will be presented and strategies to improve on their precision will be illustrated.
