# Current formula and form factor

I am currently struggling with the formula for an exact current in QFT, a fermion with an upcoming momentum $p$ and an outgoing momentum $p'$. My problem is to show whether or not a term of the form $\bar{u}(p')F(q^2)i\sigma^{\mu\nu}(p+p')^{\nu}$ where $\sigma^{\mu\nu}=\frac{i}{2}[\gamma^{\mu},\gamma^{\nu}]$. I would like it to be forbidden by current conservation but I can't prove it, is my intuition wrong?

Your term is allowed, and in fact present in QED. It gives the anomalous magnetic form factor contribution to the current. In QED, The number $2F(0)$ is the anomalous magnetic moment of the electron. See Peskin/Schroeder p.186-188.
Thanks, managed to show that this term is proportional to $\bar{u}(p')\gamma^{\mu}u(p)$ by using the Dirac equation. –  toot Mar 15 '12 at 17:56
