Abstract: We investigate the vector and axial-vector form factors for the pion radiative weak decays π+→e+νeγ and π+→e+νee+e− , based on the gauged effective chiral action from the instanton vacuum in the large Nc limit. The nonlocal contributions, which arise from the gauging of the action, enhance the vector form factor by about 20% , whereas the axial-vector form factor is reduced by almost 30% . Both the results for the vector and axial-vector form factors at the zero momentum transfer are in good agreement with the experimental data. The dependence of the form factors on the momentum transfer is also studied. The slope parameters are computed and compared with other works.
