    Casimir scaling or flux counting?

    Potentials between two static sources in various representations of the SU(3) gauge group are determined on anisotropic 3+1 dimensional lattices. Strong evidence in favour of "Casimir scaling" is found.Comment: 4 pages Latex, epscrc2.sty with 2 epsf figure

    Are there short distance non-perturbative contributions to the QCD static potential?

    Full text link
    We find that perturbation theory fails to describe the short range static potential as obtained from quenched lattice simulations, at least for source separations r > 1/(6 GeV). The difference between the non-perturbatively determined potential and perturbation theory at short distance is well parameterised by a linear term with a slope of approximately 1.2 GeV^2 that is significantly bigger than the string tension, sigma = 0.21 GeV^2Comment: 11 pages Latex, elsart style with 3 epsf figures, some figures and formulas have changed due to a sign error in the original manuscript, Title changed, typos corrected, references update

    String breaking

    Full text link
    We numerically investigate the transition of the static quark-antiquark string into a static-light meson-antimeson system. Improving noise reduction techniques, we are able to resolve the signature of string breaking dynamics for Nf=2 lattice QCD at zero temperature. We discuss the lattice techniques used and present results on energy levels and mixing angle of the static two-state system. We visualize the action density distribution in the region of string breaking as a function of the static colour source-antisource separation. The results can be related to properties of quarkonium systems.Comment: 8 pages, Talk given at the Workshop on Computational Hadron Physics, Nicosia, Cyprus, 14--17 September 200

    Where do perturbative and non-perturbative QCD meet?

    We computed the static potential and Wilson loops to O(╬▒2)O(\alpha^2) in perturbation theory for different lattice quark and gluon actions. In general, we find short distance lattice data to be well described by ``boosted perturbation theory''. For Wilson-type fermions at present-day quark masses and lattice spacings agreement within 10% between measured ``╬▓\beta-shifts'' and those predicted by perturbation theory is found. We comment on prospects for a determination of the real world QCD running coupling.Comment: 3 pages, 4 figures, Talk at Lattice 2001 in renormalisation and improvement sessio

    The Running Coupling from SU(3) Gauge Theory

    Full text link
    We present high precision results on the static quark-antiquark-potential on 32^4 and smaller lattices, using the standard Wilson action at BETA = 6.0, 6.2, 6.4, and 6.8 on the Connection Machine CM-2. Within our statistical errors (1%) we did not observe any finite size effects affecting the potential values, on varying the spatial lattice extent from 0.9 fm up to 3.3 fm. We find violations of asymptotic scaling in the bare coupling up to BETA = 6.8. We demonstrate that scaling violations on the string tension can be considerably reduced by introducing effective coupling schemes, which allow for a safer extrapolation of LAMBDA_Lattice to its continuum value. We are also able to see and to quantify the running of the coupling from the interquark force. From this we extract the ratio \sqrt{SIGMA}/LAMBDA_L. Both methods yield consistent values for the LAMBDA-parameter: LAMBDA_MSbar = 0.558(-0.007+0.017)\sqrt{SIGMA} = 246(-3+7) MeV.Comment: (Talk G.

    Field distributions in heavy mesons and baryons

    Full text link
    Field distributions generated by static quark-antiquark and QQQ sources are calculated analytically in the framework of the Field Correlator Method (FCM) using Gaussian (bilocal) correlator. In both cases the string consists mostly of longitudinal color electric field, while transverse electric field contributes locally less then 3%, in agreement with earlier lattice studies. In the QQQ case the profile of the Y shape was calculated for the first time and found to have a complicated structure with a deep well at the string junction position. Possible consequences of this form for the baryon structure are discussed.Comment: LaTeX2e, 11 pages, 4 Postscript figures, 2 GIF images, version to appear in Physics Letters
