    't Hooft loop and the phases of SU(2) LGT

    Full text link
    We analyze the vacuum structure of SU(2) lattice gauge theories in D=2,3,4, concentrating on the stability of 't Hooft loops. High precision calculations have been performed in D=3; similar results hold also for D=4 and D=2. We discuss the impact of our findings on the continuum limit of Yang-Mills theories.Comment: 7 pages, 3 figures.

    Non perturbative study of QCD on a 2+2 anisotropic lattice

    Full text link
    We present preliminary results for a non perturbative determination of the parameters in the action required to restore Lorentz invariance in long distance correlators, using the static interquark potential. Comparison with analytical results is made and further applications are discussed.Comment: 3 pages, Lattice2003 (improvement

    High-precision computation of two-loop Feynman diagrams with Wilson fermions

    Get PDF
    We apply the coordinate-space method by Luescher and Weisz to the computation of two-loop diagrams in full QCD with Wilson fermions on the lattice. The essential ingredient is the high-precision determination of mixed fermionic-bosonic propagators.Comment: Talk presented at Lattice '97 (Theoretical Developments), Edinburgh (UK), July 1997.

    Numerical Stochastic Perturbation Theory. Convergence and features of the stochastic process. Computations at fixed (Landau) Gauge

    Get PDF
    Concerning Numerical Stochastic Perturbation Theory, we discuss the convergence of the stochastic process (idea of the proof, features of the limit distribution, rate of convergence to equilibrium). Then we also discuss the expected fluctuations in the observables and give some idea to reduce them. In the end we show that also computation of quantities at fixed (Landau) Gauge is now possible.Comment: 3 pages.

    Hybrid star structure with the Field Correlator Method

    Full text link
    We explore the relevance of the color-flavor locking phase in the equation of state (EoS) built with the Field Correlator Method (FCM) for the description of the quark matter core of hybrid stars. For the hadronic phase, we use the microscopic Brueckner-Hartree-Fock (BHF) many-body theory, and its relativistic counterpart, i.e. the Dirac-Brueckner (DBHF). We find that the main features of the phase transition are directly related to the values of the quark-antiquark potential V1V_1, the gluon condensate G2G_2 and the color-flavor superconducting gap Δ\Delta. We confirm that the mapping between the FCM and the CSS (constant speed of sound) parameterization holds true even in the case of paired quark matter. The inclusion of hyperons in the hadronic phase and its effect on the mass-radius relation of hybrid stars is also investigated.Comment: 15 pages, 8 figures ; revised version to be published in the EPJA Topical Issue on "Exotic Matter in Neutron Stars

    Beta-function, Renormalons and the Mass Term from Perturbative Wilson Loops

    Get PDF
    Several Wilson loops on several lattice sizes are computed in Perturbation Theory via a stochastic method. Applications include: Renormalons, the Mass Term in Heavy Quark Effective Theory and (possibly) the beta-function.Comment: 3 pages, 1 eps figure.

    Ghost propagator and the Coulomb form factor from the lattice

    Full text link
    We calculate the Coulomb ghost propagator G(|p|) and the static Coulomb potential V_C(|r|) for SU(2) Yang-Mills theory on the lattice. In view of possible scaling violations related to deviations from the Hamiltonian limit we use anisotropic lattices to improve the temporal resolution. We find that the ghost propagator is infrared enhanced with an exponent kappa_gh ~ 0.5 while the Coulomb potential exhibits a string tension larger than the Wilson string tension, sigma_C ~ 2 sigma. This agrees with the Coulomb "scaling" scenario derived from the Gribov-Zwanziger confinement mechanism.Comment: 23 pages, 5 figures. Some issues clarified and extended, references added.
