"Solving QCD2"

Presented by Alexei Tsvelik, BNL

Thursday, April 28, 2016, 12:30 pm — Building 510, Room 2-160

We study a (1+1)-dimensional version of the famous Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD2) both at zero and finite chemical potential. We use non- perturbative techniques (non-Abelian bosonization and Truncated Conformal Space Approach). At zero chemical potential we describe a formation of fermion three-quark (nucleons and ?-baryons) and boson (two-quark mesons, six-quark deuterons) bound states and also a formation of a topo- logically nontrivial phase. When the chemical potential exceeds the critical value, the model has a rich phase diagram which includes phases with density wave and superfluid quasi-long-range (QLR) order and also a phase of a baryon Tomonaga-Luttinger liquid (strange metal). The QLR order results as a condensation of scalar mesons (the density wave) or six-quark bound states (deuterons).
