"Confinement and Chiral symmetry breaking from an Interacting Instanton-dyon ensemble for 2 colors and Nf flavors"

Presented by Rasmus Larsen, Stony Brook University

Thursday, January 14, 2016, 12:30 pm — Building 510 Room 2-160

I will present numerical results based on an interacting ensemble of instanton-dyons, that explains the connection between chiral symmetry breaking and confinement. The instanton-dyons have the nice properties to behave as monopoles at low temperatures, and as instantons at high temperatures. We will see how the scaling behavior of the instanton-dyons creates a Polyakov loop dependent potential, which forces the Polyakov loop to the confining value as the density of dyons increases at lower temperatures. For 2 flavors we find that the dominating configuration in the ensemble exhibit a chiral symmetry transition at the same temperature as the confinement transition, within accuracy. The important factor in explaining confinement and chiral symmetry breaking is the density of the Instanton-dyons.
