    Unquenched QCD simulation results

    The recent progress on unquenched QCD simulations is critically reviewed. After some discussions on problems and subtleties in unquenched simulations, hadron spectra obtained from both quenched and unquenched simulations are compared among various gauge and quark actions. It is found that the Edinburgh plot does not agree in the continuum limit between Wilson and KS quark actions even in quenched QCD. Dynamical quark effects on hadron spectra, in particular, on meson masses are then presented for Wilson-type quark actions. Finally dynamical quark effects on other quantities such as the topological susceptibility and the flavor-singlet meson mass are discussed.Comment: Lattice 2000 (Plenary), LaTex(espcrc2.sty), 16 pages, 22 eps figure

    We describe how one can use chiral perturbation theory to obtain results for physical quantities, such as quark masses, using partially quenched simulations.Comment: Written version of two talks at DPF 2000. 6 pages, 2 figure

    MIA computer simulation test results report

    Get PDF
    Results of the first noise susceptibility computer simulation tests of the complete MIA receiver analytical model are presented. Computer simulation tests were conducted with both Gaussian and pulse noise inputs. The results of the Gaussian noise tests were compared to results predicted previously and were found to be in substantial agreement. The results of the pulse noise tests will be compared to the results of planned analogous tests in the Data Bus Evaluation Laboratory at a later time. The MIA computer model is considered to be fully operational at this time

    Monte Carlo simulation results for critical Casimir forces

    Full text link
    The confinement of critical fluctuations in soft media induces critical Casimir forces acting on the confining surfaces. The temperature and geometry dependences of such forces are characterized by universal scaling functions. A novel approach is presented to determine them for films via Monte Carlo simulations of lattice models. The method is based on an integration scheme of free energy differences. Our results for the Ising and the XY universality class compare favourably with corresponding experimental results for wetting layers of classical binary liquid mixtures and of 4He, respectively.Comment: 14 pages, 5 figure
