High-Energy Physics & RIKEN Theory Seminar

"Exploring 8 and 12 Flavor QCD"

Presented by Robert Mawhinney, BNL

Wednesday, February 9, 2011, 2:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

QCD with many light quark flavors may have a conformal phase, before the theory loses asymptotic freedom. We report on extensive simulations of 8 and 12 flavor QCD, where we have measured light hadron masses, decay constants and the string tension at zero temperature. We have also observed the finite temperature transition for 8 flavors and seen that it is first order. This data supports 8 and 12 flavor QCD being in the conventional, chirally broken phase, in contrast to other studies measuring the beta function.
