A novel strong coupling expansion of the QCD Hamiltonian

By Hans-Peter Pavel


Introducing an infinite spatial lattice with box length a, a systematic expansion of the physical QCD Hamiltonian in \lambda = g^{-2/3} can be obtained. The free part is the sum of the Hamiltonians of the quantum mechanics of spatially constant fields for each box, and the interaction terms proportional to \lambda^n contain n discretised spatial derivatives connecting different boxes. As an example, the energy of the vacuum and the lowest scalar glueball is calculated up to order \lambda^2 for the case of SU(2) Yang-Mills theory.Comment: Talk given at the 6th International Workshop on "Critical Point and Onset of Deconfinement (CPOD)", Dubna, Russia, 23-29 August 201
