RIKEN Lunch Seminar

"Vector mesons and chiral symmetry restoration"

Presented by Fabian Rennecke, Heidelberg University

Thursday, January 19, 2017, 12:30 pm — Building 510, Room 2-160

Vector mesons play a prominent role for the detection of chiral symmetry restoration in the quark-gluon plasma since their in-medium modifications are directly observable in dilepton spectra. However, a direct connection between their in-medium modifications and chiral symmetry restoration remains elusive. To shed some light on this, I will first address the question how chiral symmetry breaking and the light (vector) mesons emerge from the underlying quark-gluon dynamics. Then, I will present preliminary results on the in-medium spectral functions of the rho and a1 mesons obtained from analytic continuation of Euclidean two-point functions.
