We discuss the need for introducing a ‘line of constant physics’
(i.e., a scheme) when computing
isospin breaking corrections to hadronic quantities.
We show that within a certain class of schemes
one can separate the electromagnetic corrections from the
strong isospin breaking corrections at
leading order, meaning that within this class scheme-ambiguities are
higher order effects.
