Nuclear Theory/RIKEN Seminar

"Massless QED in three dimensions with even number of flavors"

Presented by Rajamani Narayanan, Florida International University

Friday, November 6, 2015, 2:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

Massless QED in three (two space and one Euclidean time) with even number of flavors does not break parity. There are analytical arguments for chiral symmetry to be spontaneously broken and some numerical evidence supporting these arguments. An interesting "open" question is the possibility of a critical number of flavors below which chiral symmetry is broken. Numerical results obtained using dynamical Wilson fermions will be presented with emphasis on the behavior of the low lying eigenvalues of the Wilson Dirac operator. Finite volume analysis will be used to obtain conclusions about the absence or presence of a chiral condensate.
