    Chiral Symmetry and Electron-Electron Interaction in Many-Body Gap Formation in Graphene

    Full text link
    We study a many-body ground state of graphene in perpendicular magnetic fields. Chiral symmetry in graphene enables us to determine the many-body ground state, which turns out to be a doubly degenerate chiral condensate for the half-filled (undoped) case. In the ground state a prominent charge accumulation emerges along zigzag edges. We also show that gapless excitations are absent despite the presence of the robust edge modes, which is consistent with the Chern number C = 0.Comment: 4 pages, 3 figures, proceeding of 26th International Conference on Low Temperature Physics (LT26

    Lattice QCD and Hydro/Cascade Model of Heavy Ion Collisions

    Full text link
    We report here on a recent lattice study of the QCD transition region at finite temperature and zero chemical potential using domain wall fermions (DWF). We also present a parameterization of the QCD equation of state obtained from lattice QCD that is suitable for use in hydrodynamics studies of heavy ion collisions. Finally, we show preliminary results from a multi-stage hydrodynamics/hadron cascade model of a heavy ion collision, in an attempt to understand how well the experimental data (e.g. particle spectra, elliptic flow, and HBT radii) can constrain the inputs (e.g. initial temperature, freezeout temperature, shear viscosity, equation of state) of the theoretical model.Comment: 10 pages, 12 figures.

    Structure of Critical Lines in Quenched Lattice QCD with the Wilson Quark Action

    Get PDF
    The structure of critical lines of vanishing pion mass for the Wilson quark action is examined in quenched lattice QCD. The numerical evidence is presented that critical lines spread into five branches beyond beta=5.6-5.7 at zero temperature. It is also shown that critical lines disappear in the deconfined phase for the case of finite temperatures.Comment: 11 pages, Latex, 7 Postscript figures, uses epsf.st

    Lattice QCD with Domain-Wall Fermions

    Get PDF
    We study the quenched lattice QCD using domain-wall fermions at ÎČ=6.0\beta=6.0. Behaviors of both pion mass and the explicit breaking term in the axial Ward-Takahashi identity support the existence of the chiral zero modes. We observe a good agreement between the pion decay constants fπf_\pi from both the conserved axial current and the local current perturbatively renormalized at 1-loop. Finally the possible existence of the parity broken phase is also examined in this model.Comment: LATTICE99 (Chiral Fermions), 3 page

    Decay Rate Asymmetry of Top Squark

    Get PDF
    We discuss a decay rate asymmetry of the top squark, which is induced by a new source of CP violation intrinsic in the supersymmetric standard model. Although new sources of CP violation in this model are severely constrained from the electric dipole moment of the neutron, an unsuppressed CP-violating phase can still coexist with a top squark whose mass is accessible by near-future colliders. Then the dominant decay mode of the top squark has a width different from its CP conjugate process. The magnitude of this CPCP asymmetry becomes of order 10−310^{-3}.Comment: 11 pages, 1 figur
