RIKEN Lunch Seminar

"The Functional Renormalization Group Method and Delayed Magnetic Catalysis"

Presented by Stefan Rechenberger, University of Darmstadt

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

This talk will start with a very general introduction to the Functional Renormalization Group method, a powerful non-perturbative tool which can be applied to various problems. The second part of the talk will demonstrate this by discussing the influence of an external magnetic field on the chiral phase transition in the theory of strong interaction. The Functional Renormalization Group analysis shows that, driven by gluon dynamics, the chiral critical temperature decreases for small values of the magnetic field. For large values of the external field, however, the phase transition temperature increases.
