Sample records for chiral quark model

  1. Chiral quark model

    Indian Academy of Sciences (India)

    H Weigel

    2003-11-01

    In this talk I review studies of hadron properties in bosonized chiral quark models for the quark flavor dynamics. Mesons are constructed from Bethe–Salpeter equations and baryons emerge as chiral solitons. Such models require regularization and I show that the two-fold Pauli–Villars regularization scheme not only fully regularizes the effective action but also leads the scaling laws for structure functions. For the nucleon structure functions the present approach serves to determine the regularization prescription for structure functions whose leading moments are not given by matrix elements of local operators. Some numerical results are presented for the spin structure functions.

  2. Parity doublers in chiral potential quark models

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The effect of spontaneous breaking of chiral symmetry over the spectrum of highly excited hadrons is addressed in the framework of a microscopic chiral potential quark model (Generalised Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model) with a vectorial instantaneous quark kernel of a generic form. A heavy-light quark-antiquark bound system is considered, as an example, and the Lorentz nature of the effective light-quark potential is identified to be a pure Lorentz-scalar, for low-lying states in the spectrum, and to become a pure spatial Lorentz vector, for highly excited states. Consequently, the splitting between the partners in chiral doublets is demonstrated to decrease fast in the upper part of the spectrum so that neighboring states of an opposite parity become almost degenerate. A detailed microscopic picture of such a 'chiral symmetry restoration' in the spectrum of highly excited hadrons is drawn and the corresponding scale of restoration is estimated

  3. Two chiral nonet model with massless quarks

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We present a detailed study of a linear sigma model containing one chiral nonet transforming under U(1)A as a quark-antiquark composite and another chiral nonet transforming as a diquark-antidiquark composite (or, equivalently from a symmetry point of view, as a two meson molecule). The model provides an intuitive explanation of a current puzzle in low energy QCD: Recent work has suggested the existence of a lighter than 1 GeV nonet of scalar mesons which behave like four quark composites. On the other hand, the validity of a spontaneously broken chiral symmetric description would suggest that these states be chiral partners of the light pseudoscalar mesons, which are two quark composites. The model solves the problem by starting with the two chiral nonets mentioned and allowing them to mix with each other. The input of physical masses in the SU(3) invariant limit for two scalar octets and an excited pion octet results in a mixing pattern wherein the light scalars have a large four quark content while the light pseudoscalars have a large two quark content. One light isosinglet scalar is exceptionally light. In addition, the pion pion scattering is also studied and the current algebra theorem is verified for massless pions which contain some four quark admixture

    We present a detailed study of a linear sigma model containing one chiral nonet transforming under U(1)$_A$ as a quark-antiquark composite and another chiral nonet transforming as a diquark-anti diquark composite (or, equivalently from a symmetry point of view, as a two meson molecule).

  5. Chiral dynamics of baryons in the perturbative chiral quark model

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Pumsa-ard, K.

    2006-07-01

    In this work we develop and apply variants of a perturbative chiral quark model (PCQM) to the study of baryonic properties dominantly in the low-energy region. In a first step we consider a noncovariant form of the PCQM, where confinement is modelled by a static, effective potential and chiral corrections are treated to second order, in line with similar chiral quark models. We apply the PCQM to the study of the electromagnetic form factors of the baryon octet. We focus in particular on the low-energy observables such as the magnetic moments, the charge and magnetic radii. In addition, the electromagnetic N-delta transition is also studied in the framework of the PCQM. In the chiral loop calculations we consider a quark propagator, which is restricted to the quark ground state, or in hadronic language to nucleon and delta intermediate states, for simplicity. We furthermore include the low-lying excited states to the quark propagator. In particular, the charge radius of the neutron and the transverse helicity amplitudes of the N-delta transition are considerably improved by this additional effect. In a next step we develop a manifestly Lorentz covariant version of the PCQM, where in addition higher order chiral corrections are included. The full chiral quark Lagrangian is motivated by and in analogy to the one of Chiral Perturbation Theory (ChPT). This Lagrangian contains a set of low energy constants (LECs), which are parameters encoding short distance effects and heavy degrees of freedom. We evaluate the chiral Lagrangian to order O(p{sup 4}) and to one loop to generate the dressing of the bare quark operators by pseudoscalar mesons. In addition we include the vector meson degrees of freedom in our study. Projection of the dressed quark operators on the baryonic level serves to calculate the relevant matrix elements. In a first application of this scheme, we resort to a parameterization of the valence quark form factors in the electromagnetic sector. Constraints

  6. A chiral symmetric quark model without free quarks

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A chirally symmetric quark model is presented which contrary to the Nambu Jona-Lasinio (NJL) model does not lead to the presence of free quarks. In the model a non-local effective interaction is used as a schematic parameterization of the quark antiquark scattering kernel. The non-locality can be interpreted as phenomenologically taking into account an infinite number of elementary scattering processes, like the sum of all multi-gluon exchange processes in the particle-particle channel. The basic Lagrangian of the interaction shares all global internal symmetries with QCD. In particular in the limit of vanishing current quark masses it is chirally symmetric. Starting from the non-local scattering kernel the solution of the Dyson-Schwinger equation and the Bethe-Salpeter equation leads to a consistent description of the dressed quark propagators with the mesonsa s quark-antiquark states. Like in the NJL-model chiral symmetry is spontaneously broken. Because of the non-locality of the interaction, however, in our model the quarks do not acquire a constant constituent mass but a four momentum dependent selfenergy. (orig.)

    2009-01-01

    We apply the approximating chiral quark model. This chiral quark model is based on an effective Lagrangian which the interactions between quarks via sigma and pions mesons. The field equations have been solved in the mean field approximation for the hedgehog baryon state. Good results are obtained for nucleon properties in comparison with original model.

  8. N phi state in chiral quark model

    CERN Document Server

    Huang, F; Zhang, Z Y

    2006-01-01

    The structures of N phi states with spin-parity J^{p}=3/2^- and J^p=1/2^- are dynamically studied in both the chiral SU(3) quark model and the extended chiral SU(3) quark model by solving a resonating group method (RGM) equation. The model parameters are taken from our previous work, which gave a satisfactory description of the energies of the baryon ground states, the binding energy of the deuteron, the nucleon-nucleon (NN) scattering phase shifts, and the hyperon-nucleon (YN) cross sections. The channel coupling of N phi and Lambda K* is considered, and the effect of the tensor force which results in the mixing of S and D waves is also investigated. The results show that the N phi state has an attractive interaction, and in the extended chiral SU(3) quark model such an attraction plus the channel coupling effect can consequently make for an N phi quasi-bound state with several MeV binding energy.

  9. Chiral Lagrangian and chiral quark model from confinement in QCD

    CERN Document Server

    Simonov, Yu A

    2015-01-01

    The effective chiral Lagrangian in both nonlocal form $L_{ECCL}$ and standard local form $L_{ECL}$ are derived in QCD using the confining kernel, obtained in the vacuum correlator formalism. As a result all coefficients of $L_{ECL}$ can be computed via $q\\bar q$ Green's functions. In the $p^2$ order of $L_{ECL}$ one obtains GOR relations and quark decay constants $f_a$ are calculated $a=1,...8$, while in the $p^4$ order the coefficients $L_1, L_2, L_3,L_4, L_5, L_6$ are obtained in good agreement with the values given by data. The chiral quark model is shown to be a simple consequence of $L_{ECCL}$ with defined coefficients. It is demonstrated that $L_{ECCL}$ gives an extension of the limiting low-energy Lagrangian $L_{ECL}$ to arbitrary momenta.

    CERN Document Server

    Broniowski, W; Ripka, G; Broniowski, Wojciech; Golli, Bojan; Ripka, Georges

    2002-01-01

    Properties of hedgehog solitons in a chiral quark model with nonlocal regulators are described. We discuss the formation of the hedgehog soliton, the quantization of the baryon number, the energetic stability, the gauging and construction of Noether currents with help of path-ordered P-exponents, and the evaluation of observables. The issue of nonlocality is thoroughly discussed, with a focus on contributions to observables related to the Noether currents. It is shown that with typical model parameters the solitons are not far from the weak nonlocality limit. The methods developed are applicable to solitons in models with separable nonlocal four-fermion interactions.

  11. Orbital Angular Momentum in the Chiral Quark Model

    OpenAIRE

    Song, Xiaotong

    1998-01-01

    We developed a new and unified scheme for describing both quark spin and orbital angular momenta in symmetry-breaking chiral quark model. The loss of quark spin in the chiral splitting processes is compensated by the gain of the orbital angular momentum carried by quarks and antiquarks. The sum of both spin and orbital angular momenta carried by quarks and antiquarks is 1/2. The analytic and numerical results for the spin and orbital angular momenta carried by quarks and antiquarks in the nuc...

  12. Quark matter inside neutron stars in an effective chiral model

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    An effective chiral model which describes properties of a single baryon predicts that the quark matter relevant to neutron stars, close to the deconfinement density, is in a chirally broken phase. We find the SU(2) model that pion-condensed up and down quark matter is preferred energetically at neutron star densities. It exhibits spin ordering and can posses a permanent magnetization. The equation of state of quark matter with chiral condensate is very well approximated by bag model equation of the state with suitably chosen parameters. We study quark cores inside neutron stars in this model using realistic nucleon equations of state. The biggest quark core corresponds to the second order phase transition to quark matter. Magnetic moment of the pion-condensed quark core is calculated. (author). 19 refs, 10 refs, 1 tab

    2004-01-01

    A method for obtaining the small current quark mass effect on the dressed quark propagator from an effective quark-quark interaction model is developed. Within this approach both the explicit and dynamical chiral symmetry breakings are analysed. A comparison with the previous results is given.

    OpenAIRE

    Wang, P.; Lyubovitskij, V. E.; Gutsche, Th.; Faessler, Amand

    2002-01-01

    We apply the chiral SU(3) quark mean field model to investigate strange quark matter. The stability of strange quark matter with different strangeness fraction is studied. The interaction between quarks and vector mesons destabilizes the strange quark matter. If the strength of the vector coupling is the same as in hadronic matter, strangelets can not be formed. For the case of beta equilibrium, there is no strange quark matter which can be stable against hadron emission even without vector m...

  15. NN Scattering Phase Shifts in a Chiral Constituent Quark Model

    OpenAIRE

    Bartz, D.; Stancu, Fl

    2000-01-01

    We study the nucleon-nucleon interaction within a chiral constituent quark model which reproduces succesfully the baryon spectra. We calculate the 3S1 and 1S0 phase shifts by using the resonating group method. They clearly indicate the presence of a strong repulsive interaction at short distance, due to the spin-flavor symmetry of the quark-quark interaction and of the quark interchange between the two interacting nucleons. A sigma-exchange quark-quark interaction, providing a medium-range at...

  16. Three-phase model of a chiral quark bag

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Three-phase modification of the model of hybrid chiral quark bag is suggested. Along with the phase of asymptotically free current quarks and completely achromatic meson phase the model contains an intermediate phase including massive quark components. Self-consistent solution of model equations with account of contribution from the Dirac sea is found for (1+1)-dimensional case. The dependence of bag characteristics on theory parameters is investigated in analytical and numerical forms

    2000-01-01

    We outline a consistent regularization procedure to compute hadron structure functions within bosonized chiral quark models. We impose the Pauli--Villars scheme, which reproduces the chiral anomaly, to regularize the bosonized action. We derive the Compton amplitude from this action and utilize the Bjorken limit to extract structure functions that are consistent with the scaling laws and sum rules of deep inelastic scattering.

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    ZHANG Ming; ZHANG Hai-Xia; ZHANG Zong-Ye

    2008-01-01

    The possibility of QQqq heavy-light four-quark bound states has been analyzed by means of the chiral SU(3) quark model, where Q is the heavy quark (c or b) and q is the light quark (u, d, or s). We obtain a bound state for the bbnn configuration with quantum number JP=1+, I=0 and for the ccnn (JP=1+, I=0) configuration, which is not bound but slightly above the D*D* threshold (n is u or d quark). Meanwhile, we also conclude that a weakly bound state in bbnn system can also be found without considering the chiral quark interactions between the two light quarks, yet its binding energy is weaker than that with the chiral quark interactions.

  19. Ω(ε)States in a Chiral Quark Model

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2007-01-01

    The structures of Ω(ε) states with spin-parity Jp = 5/2-, 3/2-, and 1/2- are dynamically studied in both the chiral SU(3) quark model and the extended chiral SU(3) quark model by solving a resonating group method (RGM) equation. The model parameters are taken from our previous work, which gave a satisfactory description of the energies of the baryon ground states, the binding energy of the deuteron, the nucleon-nucleon (NN) scattering phase shifts, and the hyperon-nucleon (YN) cross sections. The calculated results show that theΩ(ε) state has an attractive interaction, and in the extended chiral SU(3) quark model such attraction can make for aΩ(ε) quasi-bound state with spin-parity Jp = 3/2- or 5/2- and tie binding energy of about several MeV.

    Carlomagno, J. P.; Gomez Dumm, D.; Pagura, V.; Scoccola, N. N.

    2015-07-01

    We study the features of nonlocal chiral quark models that include wave function renormalization. Model parameters are determined from meson phenomenology, considering different nonlocal form factor shapes. In this context we analyze the characteristics of the deconfinement and chiral restoration transitions at finite temperature and chemical potential, introducing the couplings of fermions to the Polyakov loop for different Polyakov potentials. The results for various thermodynamical quantities are compared with data obtained from lattice QCD calculations.

  1. Dimension 2 condensates and Polyakov Chiral Quark Models

    OpenAIRE

    Megias, E.; Arriola, E. Ruiz; Salcedo, L. L.

    2006-01-01

    We address a possible relation between the expectation value of the Polyakov loop in pure gluodynamics and full QCD based on Polyakov Chiral Quark Models where constituent quarks and the Polyakov loop are coupled in a minimal way. To this end we use a center symmetry breaking Gaussian model for the Polyakov loop distribution which accurately reproduces gluodynamics data above the phase transition in terms of dimension 2 gluon condensate. The role played by the quantum and local nature of the ...

  2. Chiral Transition Within Effective Quark Models under Strong Magnetic Fields

    CERN Document Server

    Garcia, Andre Felipe

    2013-01-01

    In the recently years it has been argued that spectators in heavy ion collisions are responsible for creating a strong magnetic field that could play an important role in the QCD phase transition. In this work we use the SU(2) Nambu--Jona-Lasinio (NJL) model in order to study the chiral transition in quark matter subject to a strong magnetic field. We show some results involving the breaking of chiral symmetry and its restoration at finite temperature and density.

  3. Confined Chiral Solitons in the Spectral Quark Model

    Ruiz-Arriola, E; Golli, B; Arriola, Enrique Ruiz; Broniowski, Wojciech; Golli, Bojan

    2006-01-01

    Chiral solitons with baryon number one are investigated in the spectral quark model. In this model the quark propagator is a superposition of complex mass propagators with a suitable spectral function. As a result, the constituent quark mass is identified with saddle points of the Dirac eigenvalues. Due to this feature the valence quarks never become unbound nor dive into the negative spectrum, hence providing stable solitons as absolute minima of the action. This a manifestation of the built-in analytic confinement in the spectral quark model. Self-consistent mean field hedgehog solutions are found and some of their properties determined. Our analysis constitutes an example of a treatment of a relativistic complex mass system.

  4. ND^(*) and NB^(*) interactions in a chiral quark model

    CERN Document Server

    Yang, Dan; Zhang, Dan

    2015-01-01

    ND and ND^* interactions become a hot topic after the observation of new charmed hadrons \\Sigma_c(2800) and \\Lambda_c(2940)^+. In this letter, we have preliminary investigated S-wave ND and ND^* interactions with possible quantum numbers in the chiral SU(3) quark model and the extended chiral SU(3) quark model by solving the resonating group method equation. The numerical results show that the interactions between N and D or N and D^* are both attractive, which are mainly from \\sigma exchanges between light quarks. Further bound-state studies indicate the attractions are strong enough to form ND or ND^* molecules, except for (ND)_{J=3/2} and (ND^*)_{J=3/2} in the chiral SU(3) quark model. In consequence ND system with J=1/2 and ND^* system with J=3/2 in the extended SU(3) quark model could correspond to the observed \\Sigma_c(2800) and \\Lambda_c(2940)^+, respectively. Naturally, the same method can be applied to research NB and NB^* interactions, and similar conclusions obtained, i.e. NB and NB^* attractive fo...

  5. Hadron Properties in a Chiral Quark-Sigma Model

    CERN Document Server

    Rashdan, M; El-Kholy, S; Abu-Shady, M

    2011-01-01

    Within a chiral quark sigma model in which quarks interact via the exchange of sigma and pi-mesons, hadron properties are investigated. This model of the nucleon and delta is based on the idea that strong QCD forces on very short distances (a small length scales 0.2- 1 fm) result in hidden chiral SU(2)xSU(2) symmetry and that there is a separation of roles between these forces which are responsible for binding quarks in hadrons and the forces which produce absolute confinement. We have solved the field equations in the mean field approximation for the hedgehog baryon state with different sets of model parameters. A new parametrization which well describe the nucleon properties has been introduced and compared with experimental data.

    Using non-local chiral quark model and currents satisfying Ward-Takahashi identities we analyze Distribution Amplitudes (DA) of photon and pion-to-photon Transition Distribution Amplitudes (TDA) in the low energy regime. Photon DA's are calculated analytically up to twist-4 and reveal several interesting features of photon structure. TDA's calculated in the present model satisfy polynomiality condition. Normalization of vector TDA is fixed by the axial anomaly. We also compute relevant form f...

  7. Transversity structure of the pion in chiral quark models

    CERN Document Server

    Broniowski, Wojciech; Dorokhov, Alexander E

    2011-01-01

    We describe the chiral quark model evaluation of the transversity Generalized Parton Distributions (tGPDs) and related transversity form factors (tFFs) of the pion. The obtained tGPDs satisfy all necessary formal requirements, such as the proper support, normalization, and polynomiality. The lowest tFFs, after the necessary QCD evolution, compare favorably to the recent lattice QCD determination. Thus the transversity observables of the pion support once again the fact that the spontaneously broken chiral symmetry governs the structure of the Goldstone pion. The proper QCD evolution is crucial in these studies.

  8. Scalar mesons in a chiral quark model with glueball

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Ground-state scalar isoscalar mesons and a scalar glueball are described in a U(3)xU(3) chiral quark model of the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio (NJL) type with 't Hooft interaction. The latter interaction produces singlet-octet mixing in the scalar and pseudoscalar sectors. The glueball is introduced into the effective meson Lagrangian as a dilaton on the basis of scale invariance. The mixing of the glueball with scalar isoscalar quarkonia and amplitudes of their decays into two pseudoscalar mesons are shown to be proportional to current quark masses, vanishing in the chiral limit. Mass spectra of the scalar mesons and the glueball and their main modes of strong decay are described

  9. Non-leptonic decays in an extended chiral quark model

    CERN Document Server

    Eeg, J O

    2012-01-01

    We consider the color suppressed (nonfactorizable) amplitude for the decay mode $\\bar{B_{d}^0} \\rightarrow \\pi^0 \\pi^{0} $. We treat the $b$-quark in the heavy quark limit and the energetic light ($u,d,s$) quarks within a variant of Large Energy Effective Theory combined with an extension of chiral quark models. Our calculated amplitude for $\\bar{B_{d}^0} \\rightarrow \\pi^0 \\pi^{0} $ is suppressed by a factor of order $\\Lambda_{QCD}/m_b$ with respect to the factorized amplitude, as it should according to QCD-factorization. Further, for reasonable values of the (model dependent) gluon condensate and the constituent quark mass, the calculated nonfactorizable amplitude for $\\bar{B_{d}^0} \\rightarrow \\pi^0 \\pi^{0} $ can easily accomodate the experimental value. Unfortunately, the color suppressed amplitude is very sensitive to the values of these model dependent parameters. Therefore fine-tuning is necessary in order to obtain an amplitude compatible with the experimental result for $\\bar{B_{d}^0} \\rightarrow \\pi^...

  10. Chiral Quark Soliton Model and Nucleon Spin Structure Functions

    CERN Document Server

    Wakamatsu, M

    2009-01-01

    The chiral quark soliton model (CQSM) is one of the most successful models of baryons at quark level, which maximally incorporates the most important feature of low energy QCD, i.e. the chiral symmetry and its spontaneous breakdown. Basically, it is a relativistic mean-field theory with full account of infinitely many Dirac-sea quarks in a rotational-symmetry-breaking mean field of hedgehog shape. The numerical technique established so far enables us to make a nonperturbative evaluation of Casimir effects (i.e. effects of vacuum-polarized Dirac sea) on a variety of baryon observables. This incompatible feature of the model manifests most clearly in its predictions for parton distribution functions of the nucleon. In this talk, after briefly reviewing several basic features of the CQSM, we plan to demonstrate in various ways that this unique model of baryons provides us with an ideal tool for disentangling nonperturbative aspect of the internal partonic structure of the nucleon, especially the underlying spin ...

  11. Quark contribution to the proton spin in the chiral quark-meson model

    1988-12-01

    It has been argued that, to leading order in the 1/N/sub c/ expansion, very little of the spin of the proton is carried by the helicities of its constituent quarks, in accordance with the results of a recent EMC experiment. The authors investigate this question by a direct computation in the chiral quark-meson model, where the proton spin is generated by cranking a mean field hedgehog baryon. For not too small values of the quark-meson coupling constant, their results are consistent with the EMC data.

    Using non-local chiral quark model and currents satisfying Ward-Takahashi identities we analyze Distribution Amplitudes (DA) of photon and pion-to-photon Transition Distribution Amplitudes (TDA) in the low energy regime. Photon DA's are calculated analytically up to twist-4 and reveal several interesting features of photon structure. TDA's calculated in the present model satisfy polynomiality condition. Normalization of vector TDA is fixed by the axial anomaly. We also compute relevant form factors and compare them with existing data. Axial form factor turns out to be much lower then the vector one, what indeed is seen in the experimental data.

  13. Finite-temperature corrections in the dilated chiral quark model

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We calculate the finite-temperature corrections in the dilated chiral quark model using the effective potential formalism. Assuming that the dilaton limit is applicable at some short length scale, we interpret the results to represent the behavior of hadrons in dense and hot matter. We obtain the scaling law, fπ(T)/fπ = mQ(T)/mQ ≅ mσ(T)/mσwhile we argue, using PCAC, that pion mass does not scale within the temperature range involved in our Lagrangian. It is found that the hadron masses and the pion decay constant drop faster with temperature in the dilated chiral quark model than in the conventional linear sigma model that does not take into account the QCD scale anomaly. We attribute the difference in scaling in heat bath to the effect of baryonic medium on thermal properties of the hadrons. Our finding would imply that the AGS experiments (dense and hot matter) and the RHIC experiments (hot and dilute matter) will ''see'' different hadron properties in the hadronization exit phase

  14. charmed baryon strong decays in a chiral quark model

    CERN Document Server

    Zhong, Xian-Hui

    2007-01-01

    Charmed baryon strong decays are studied in a chiral quark model. The data for the decays of $\\Lambda^+_c(2593)$, $\\Lambda^+_c(2625)$, $\\Sigma^{++,+,0}_c$ and $\\Sigma^{+,0}_c(2520)$, are accounted for successfully, which allows to fix the pseudoscalar-meson-quark couplings in an effective chiral Lagrangian. Extending this framework to analyze the strong decays of the newly observed charmed baryons, we classify that both $\\Lambda_c(2880)$ and $\\Lambda_c(2940)$ are $D$-wave states in the N=2 shell; $\\Lambda_c(2880)$ could be $|\\Lambda_c ^2 D_{\\lambda\\lambda}{3/2}^+>$ and $\\Lambda_c(2940)$ could be $|\\Lambda_c ^2 D_{\\lambda\\lambda}{5/2}^+>$. Our calculation also suggests that $\\Lambda_c(2765)$ is very likely a $\\rho$-mode $P$-wave excited state in the N=1 shell, and favors a $|\\Lambda_c ^4P_\\rho 1/2^->$ configuration. The $\\Sigma_c(2800)$ favors being a $|\\Sigma_c ^2P_\\lambda{1/2}^->$ state. But its being $|\\Sigma^{++}_c ^4 P_\\lambda{5/2}^->$ cannot be ruled out.

  15. QCD topological susceptibility from the nonlocal chiral quark model

    CERN Document Server

    Nam, Seung-il

    2016-01-01

    We investigate the QCD topological susceptibility $\\chi_t$ by using the nonlocal chiral quark model (NL$\\chi$QM). This model is based on the liquid instanton QCD-vacuum configuration in which $\\mathrm{SU}(3)$ flavor symmetry is explicitly broken by the current quark mass $(m_{u,d},m_s)\\approx(5,135)$ MeV. To compute $\\chi_t$, the local topological charge density operator $Q_t(x)$ is derived from the effective partition function of NL$\\chi$QM. We take into account the contributions from the leading-order (LO) ones $\\sim\\mathcal{O}(N_c)$ in the $1/N_c$ expansion. We also verify that the analytical expression of $\\chi_t$ in NL$\\chi$QM satisfy the Witten-Veneziano (WV) and the Leutwyler-Smilga (LS) formulae. Once the average instanton size and inter-instanton distance are fixed with $\\bar{\\rho}=1/3$ fm and $\\bar{R}=1$ fm, respectively, all the associated model parameters are all determined self-consistently within the model, including the $\\eta$ and $\\eta'$ weak decay constants. We obtain the results such as $F_{...

    @@ The structure of △△ dibaryon is studied in the extended chiral SU(3) quark model in which vector meson exchanges are included. The effect of the vector meson fields is very similar to that of the one-gluon exchange (OGE) interaction. Both in the chiral SU(3) quark model and in the extended chiral SU(3) quark model, the resultant mass of the △△ dibaryon is lower than the threshold of the △△ channel but higher than that of the△Nπ channel.

  17. Quarks, baryons and chiral symmetry

    CERN Document Server

    Hosaka, Atsushi

    2001-01-01

    This book describes baryon models constructed from quarks, mesons and chiral symmetry. The role of chiral symmetry and of quark model structure with SU(6) spin-flavor symmetry are discussed in detail, starting from a pedagogic introduction. Emphasis is placed on symmetry aspects of the theories. As an application, the chiral bag model is studied for nucleon structure, where important methods of theoretical physics, mostly related to the semiclassical approach for a system of strong interactions, are demonstrated. The text is more practical than formal; tools and ideas are explained in detail w

    Hedgehog solitons are found in a chiral quark model with non-local interactions. The solitons are stable without the chiral-circle constraint for the meson fields, as was assumed in previous Nambu-Jona--Lasinio model with local interactions.

  19. Relativistic Quark Model Calculation of the l1, l2 Coefficients of the Chiral Lagrangian

    OpenAIRE

    Llanes-Estrada, Felipe J.; Bicudo, Pedro

    2002-01-01

    We briefly report on a relativistic quark model scheme to calculate the O(P^4) pion-pion vertex in the planar approximation and in the chiral limit. The calculation is reduced to the solution of simple integral equations (Bethe-Salpeter like) by an effective use of chiral Ward Identities. Specific model computations are provided.

  20. Uniqueness of quarks, leptons and exotic fermions in the chiral-color models

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We study the uniqueness of quarks, leptons and exotic fermions in the chiral-color models of SU(3)CL x SU(2)L x U(1)Y and SU(3)CL x SU(3)CR x SU(2)L x SU(2)R x U(1) based on the cancellations of the three known chiral anomalies in four dimensions. The minimal exotic particles are identified for existing three and four quark-lepton families

    Bonnaz, R; Silvestre-Brac, B; Fernández, F; Valcarce, A

    2001-01-01

    The strong decays of a meson into two mesons are studied in the framework of the sup 3 P sub 0 model. The meson wave functions are determined by means of a realistic chiral quark model constructed in the baryon sector and comparison is made with a traditional potential of 'Coulomb + linear' type. Two different forms for the creation vertex are analyzed. A momentum dependent vertex is proved to be definitively superior. The chiral quark model provides an overall good description of all known transitions and gives results of roughly the same quality as those obtained from phenomenological quark-antiquark potentials.

  2. Confinement and dynamical chiral symmetry breaking in a non-perturbative renormalizable quark model

    Science.gov (United States)

    Dudal, D.; Guimaraes, M. S.; Palhares, L. F.; Sorella, S. P.

    2016-02-01

    Inspired by the construction of the Gribov-Zwanziger action in the Landau gauge, we introduce a quark model exhibiting both confinement and chiral symmetry aspects. An important feature is the incorporation of spontaneous chiral symmetry breaking in a renormalizable fashion. The quark propagator in the condensed vacuum turns out to be of a confining type. Besides a real pole, it exhibits complex conjugate poles. The resulting spectral form is explicitly shown to violate positivity, indicative of its unphysical character. Moreover, the ensuing quark mass function fits well to existing lattice data. To further validate the physical nature of the model, we identify a massless pseudoscalar (i.e. a pion) in the chiral limit and present estimates for the ρ meson mass and decay constant.

  3. NΩ and ΔΩ dibaryons in a SU(3) chiral quark model

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The binding energy of the six-quark system with strangeness s=-3 is investigated under the chiral SU(3) constituent quark model in the framework of RGM. The calculations of the single NΩ channel with spin S=2 and the single ΔΩ channel with spin S=3 are performed. The results show that both systems could be dibaryons and the interaction induced by the chiral field plays a very important role on forming bound states in the systems considered. The phase shifts and scattering lengths in corresponding channels are also given. (orig.)

    2006-01-01

    We describe results for the confinement-deconfinement phase transition as predicted by the Nambu--Jona-Lasinio model where the local and quantum Polyakov loop is coupled to the constituent quarks in a minimal way (PNJL). We observe that the leading correlation of two Polyakov loops describes the chiral transition accurately. The effects of the current quark mass on the transition are also analysed.

    The Pauli-Villars regularization scheme is often used for evaluating parton distributions within the framework of the chiral quark soliton model with inclusion of the vacuum polarization effects. Its simplest version with a single subtraction term should however be taken with some caution, since it does not fully get rid of divergences contained in scalar and psuedoscalar quark densities appearing in the soliton equation of motion. To remedy this shortcoming, we propose here its natural exten...

    2014-03-01

    Full Text Available We investigate the unpolarized pion and kaon fragmentation functions using the nonlocal chiral-quark model. In this model the interactions between the quarks and pseudoscalar mesons is manifested nonlocally. In addition, the explicit flavor SU(3 symmetry breaking effect is taken into account in terms of the current quark masses. The results of our model are evaluated to higher Q2 value Q2 = 4 GeV2 by the DGLAP evolution. Then we compare them with the empirical parametrizations. We find that our results are in relatively good agreement with the empirical parametrizations and the other theoretical estimations.

    Ripka, G; Ripka, Georges; Golli, Bojan

    1999-01-01

    A chiral quark model is described which is regularized in terms of Lorentz invariant non-local interactions. The model is regularized to all loop orders and it ensures the proper quantization of the baryon number. It sustains bound hedgehog solitons which, after suitable centre of mass corrections, can adequately describe the nucleon.

  8. Eta and kaon production in a chiral quark model

    CERN Document Server

    2016-01-01

    We apply a coupled-channel formalism incorporating quasi-bound quark-model states to calculate pion scattering into eta N, K Lambda and K Sigma channels, as well eta p, eta n, K+Lambda, and K0Sigma+ photo-production processes. The meson-baryon and photon-baryon vertices are determined in a SU(3) version of the Cloudy Bag Model. Our model predicts sizable amplitudes in the P11, P13, P33 and S11 partial waves in agreement with the latest MAID isobar model and the recent partial-wave analyses of the Bonn-Gatchina group. We are able to give a quark-model explanation for the apparent resonance at 1685 MeV in the eta n channel.

    2012-01-01

    Chiral quark models with Polyakov loop at finite temperature have been often used to describe the phase transition. We show how the transition to a hadron resonance gas is realized based on the quantum and local nature of the Polyakov loop.

  10. Adler function and hadronic contribution to the muon g-2 in a nonlocal chiral quark model

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The behavior of the vector Adler function at spacelike momenta is studied in the framework of a covariant chiral quark model with instantonlike quark-quark interaction. This function describes the transition between the high-energy asymptotically free region of almost massless current quarks to the low-energy hadronized regime with massive constituent quarks. The model reproduces the Adler function and V-A correlator extracted from the ALEPH and OPAL data on hadronic τ lepton decays, transformed into the Euclidean domain via dispersion relations. The leading order contribution from the hadronic part of the photon vacuum polarization to the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon, aμhvp(1), is estimated

  11. Instantaneous Chiral Quark Model for Relativistic Mesons in a Hot and Dense Medium

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A chiral quark model with covariant instantaneous interactions is formulated using relativistic thermodynamic Green functions. The approach is applied to the description of mesons as relativistic bound state in hot and dense quark matter. The Schwinger-Dyson equation for the quark mass operator is obtained for a covariant four-point interaction kernel. The Salpeter equations for quark-antiquark bound states in a two-component relativistic quark plasma are given in the scalar-pseudoscalar as well as vector-axial-vector channels. The case of nonvanishing total momentum of bound state relative to the medium is considered. Numerical results for the meson mass spectrum and the pion decay constant at finite temperature are presented for the special case of a separable interaction which can be applied to the case of more realistic potentials. 36 refs., 7 figs

  12. Proton parton-distribution functions from the nonlocal Chiral-Quark model

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Full text: We investigate the parton distribution functions for the proton, employing the gauge invariant nonlocal chiral-quark model. By the virtue of the Drell-Yan-Levy relation, we compute the parton distribution and fragmentation (splitting) functions for the pion and kaon consistently within the present model at the low renormalization scale ∼1 GeV which are necessary for computing the fluctuations of the quarks inside the proton. All the model parameters are determined by the normalization condition for the parton distribution functions and the empirical data for the weak-decay constants for the pion and kaon. As for the initial constituent quark, we use a simple Gaussian-type distribution, developed at the nucleon rest frame. All the results are evolved to high-Q2 via the DGLAP equations, then compared with presently available experimental data. We also discuss the asymmetry for the sea-quark distributions in the proton.

  13. Magnetic catalysis and inverse magnetic catalysis in nonlocal chiral quark models

    CERN Document Server

    Pagura, V P; Noguera, S; Scoccola, N N

    2016-01-01

    We study the behavior of strongly interacting matter under an external constant magnetic field in the context of nonlocal chiral quark models within the mean field approximation. We find that at zero temperature the behavior of the quark condensates shows the expected magnetic catalysis effect, our predictions being in good quantitative agreement with lattice QCD results. On the other hand, in contrast to what happens in the standard local Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model, when the analysis is extended to the case of finite temperature our results show that nonlocal models naturally lead to the Inverse Magnetic Catalysis effect.

  14. A chiral matrix model of the semi-Quark Gluon Plasma in QCD

    CERN Document Server

    Pisarski, Robert D

    2016-01-01

    A chiral matrix model applicable to QCD with 2+1 flavors is developed. This requires adding a SU(3)_L x SU(3)_R x Z(3)_A nonet of scalar fields, with both parities, and coupling these to quarks through a Yukawa coupling, y. Treating the scalar fields in mean field approximation, the effective Lagrangian is computed by integrating out quarks to one loop order. In addition to the usual symmetry breaking term, linear in the current quark mass m_qk, at a nonzero temperature T it is necessary to add a new term, ~ m_qk T^2. The parameters of the gluon part of the matrix model, including especially the deconfining transition temperature T_d = 270 MeV, are identical to that for the pure glue theory without quarks. The parameters in the chiral matrix model are fixed by the values, at zero temperature, of the pion decay constant the masses of the pions, kaons, eta, and eta'. The temperature for the chiral crossover at T_chi = 155 MeV is determined by adjusting the Yukawa coupling y. We find reasonable agreement with th...

  15. Instability of the hedgehog shape for the octet baryon in the chiral quark soliton model

    CERN Document Server

    Akiyama, S; Akiyama, Satoru; Futami, Yasuhiko

    2003-01-01

    In this paper the stability of the hedgehog shape of the chiral soliton is studied for the octet baryon with the SU(3) chiral quark soliton model. The strangeness degrees of freedom are treated by a simplified bound-state approach, which omits the locality of the kaon wave function. The mean field approximation for the flavor rotation is applied to the model. The classical soliton changes shape according to the strangeness. The baryon appears as a rotational band of the combined system of the deformed soliton and the kaon.

  16. Dynamical quark loop light-by-light contribution to muon g-2 within the nonlocal chiral quark model

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The hadronic corrections to the muon anomalous magnetic moment aμ, due to the gauge-invariant set of diagrams with dynamical quark loop light-by-light scattering insertions, are calculated in the framework of the nonlocal chiral quark model. These results complete calculations of all hadronic light-by-light scattering contributions to aμ in the leading order in the 1/Nc expansion. The result for the quark loop contribution is aμHLbL,Loop = (11.0 ± 0.9) @ x 10-10, and the total result is aμHLbL,NχQM = (16.8 ± 1.2) @ x 10-10. (orig.)

    The binding energy of the six quark system with strangeness s = -5 is investigated by the SU(3) chiral constituent quark model. the single Ξ*Ω channel calculation with spin S = 0 and the coupled ΞΩ-Ξ*Ω channel calculation with spin S = 1 are considered. It is shown that in the spin S = 0 case, the binding energy of Ξ*Ω is ranged from 80.0 to 92.4 MeV, while in the S = 1 case, the additional Ξ*Ω channel increases the binding energy of ΞΩ to a range of 26.2-32.9 MeV

    The hadronic contributions to the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon which are relevant for the confrontation between theory and experiment at the present level of accuracy, are evaluated within the same framework: the constituent chiral quark model. This includes the contributions from the dominant hadronic vacuum polarization as well as from the next-to-leading order hadronic vacuum polarization, the contributions from the hadronic light-by-light scattering, and the contributions from the electroweak hadronic Zγγ vertex. They are all evaluated as a function of only one free parameter: the constituent quark mass. We also comment on the comparison between our results and other phenomenological evaluations.

    2010-09-01

    The SU(2)L×SU(2)R chiral quark model consisting of the (σ,π→) meson multiplet and the constituent quarks propagating on the homogeneous background of a temporal gauge field is solved at finite temperature and quark baryon chemical potential μq using an expansion in the number of flavors Nf, both in the chiral limit and for the physical value of the pion mass. Keeping the fermion propagator at its tree level, several approximations to the pion propagator are investigated. These approximations correspond to different partial resummations of the perturbative series. Comparing their solution with a diagrammatically formulated resummation relying on a strict large-Nf expansion of the perturbative series, one concludes that only when the local part of the approximated pion propagator resums infinitely many orders in 1/Nf of fermionic contributions a sufficiently rapid crossover transition at μq=0 is achieved allowing for the existence of a tricritical point or a critical end point in the μq-T phase diagram. The renormalization and the possibility of determining the counterterms in the resummation provided by a strict large-Nf expansion are investigated.

    We have analysed the phenomenological dependence of the spin independent ($F_1^{p,n}$ and $F_2^{p,n}$) and the spin dependent ($g_1^{p,n}$) structure functions of the nucleon on the the Bjorken scaling variable $x$ using the unpolarized distribution functions of the quarks $q(x)$ and the polarized distribution functions of the quarks $\\Delta q(x)$ respectively.

The chiral constituent quark model, which is known to provide a satisfactory explanation of the proton spin crisis and related issues in the nonperturbative regime, has been used to compute explicitly the valence and sea quark flavor distribution functions of p and n . In light of the improved precision of the world data, the p and n longitudinal spin asymmetries [A1p(x ) and A1n(x )] have been calculated. The implication of the presence of the sea quarks has been discussed for the ratio of polarized to unpolarized quark distribution functions for up and down quarks in the p and n Δ/up(x ) up(x ) , Δ/dp(x ) dp(x ) , Δ/un(x ) un(x ) , and Δ/dn(x ) dn(x ) . The ratio of the n and p structure functions Rn p(x )=F/2n(x ) F2p(x ) has also been presented. The results have been compared with the recent available experimental observations. The results on the spin sum rule have also been included and compared with data and other recent approaches.

  7. Chiral phase transition scenarios from the vector meson extended Polyakov quark meson model

    2015-01-01

    Chiral phase transition is investigated in an $SU(3)_L \\times SU(3)_R$ symmetric vector meson extended linear sigma model with additional constituent quarks and Polyakov loops (extended Polyakov quark meson model). The parameterization of the Lagrangian is done at zero temperature in a hybrid approach, where the mesons are treated at tree-level, while the constituent quarks at 1-loop level. The temperature and baryochemical potential dependence of the two assumed scalar condensates are calculated from the hybrid 1-loop level equations of states. The order of the phase transition along the $T=0$ and $\\mu_B=0$ axes are determined for various parameterization scenarios. We find that in order to have a first order phase transition at $T=0$ as a function of $\\mu_B$ a light isoscalar particle is needed.

    The strong decays of the N*(1535) resonance are investigated in an extended chiral quark model by including the low-lying qqqqq components in addition to the qqq component.The results show that these five-quark components in N*(1535) contribute significantly to the N*(1535)→ Nπ and N*(1535) → Nη decays.The contributions to the Nη decay come from both the lowest energy and the next-to-lowest energy five-quarks components,while the contributions to the Nπ decay come from only the latter one.Taking these contributions into account,the description for the strong decays of N*(1535) is improved,especially for the puzzling large ratio of the decays to Nη and Nπ.

    The structures of (ΩΩ)0+ and (([1])Ω)1+ are studied in the extended chiral SU(3) quark model in whichvector meson exchanges are included. The effect from the vector meson fields is very similar to that from the one-gluonexchange (OGE) interaction. Both in the chiral SU(3) quark model and in the extended chiral SU(3) quark model,di-omega (ΩΩ)0+ is always deeply bound, with over one hundred MeV binding energy, and (([1])Ω)1+ 's binding energyis around 20 MeV. An analysis shows that the quark exchange effect plays a very important role for making di-omega(ΩΩ)0+ deeply bound.

    The chiral symmetry breaking transition of quarks in the fundamental and adjoint representation is studied in a model where the gap equation contains two contributions, one containing a confining propagator and another corresponding to the exchange of one-dressed dynamically massive gluons. When quarks are in the fundamental representation the confinement effect dominates the chiral symmetry breaking while the gluon exchange is suppressed due to the dynamical gluon mass effect in the propagator and in the coupling constant. In this case the chiral and deconfinement transition temperatures are approximately the same. For quarks in the adjoint representation, due to the larger Casimir eigenvalue, the gluon exchange is operative and the chiral transition happens at a larger temperature than the deconfinement one.

  12. Generalized Ginzburg–Landau approach to inhomogeneous phases in nonlocal chiral quark models

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We analyze the presence of inhomogeneous phases in the QCD phase diagram within the framework of nonlocal chiral quark models. We concentrate in particular in the positions of the tricritical (TCP) and Lifshitz (LP) points, which are studied in a general context using a generalized Ginzburg–Landau approach. We find that for all the phenomenologically acceptable model parametrizations considered the TCP is located at a higher temperature and a lower chemical potential in comparison with the LP. Consequently, these models seem to favor a scenario in which the onset of the first order transition between homogeneous phases is not covered by an inhomogeneous, energetically favored phase

  13. Chiral Quark-Meson model of N and DELTA with vector mesons

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Vector mesons rho, A1 and ω are introduced in the Chiral Quark-Meson Theory (CQMT) of N and Δ. We propose a new viewpoint for developing CQMT from QCD at the mean-field level. The SU(2) x SU(2) chiral Lagrangian incorporates universal coupling. Accordingly, rho is coupled to the conserved isospin current, A to the partially conserved axial-vector current (PCAC), and ω to the conserved baryon current. As a result the only parameter of the model not directly related to experiment is the quark-pion coupling constant. A fully self-consistent mean-field solution to the model is found for fields in the hedgehog ansatz. The vector mesons play a very important role in the system. They contribute significantly to the values of observables and produce a high-quality fit to many data. The classical stability of the system with respect to hedgehog excitations is analyzed through the use of the Quark-Meson RPA equations (QMRPA)

    We investigate the kaon semileptonic decay (K_{l3}) form factors within the framework of the nonlocal chiral quark model from the instanton vacuum, taking into account the effects of flavor SU(3) symmetry breaking. All theoretical calculations are carried out without any adjustable parameter. We also show that the present results satisfy the Callan-Treiman low-energy theorem as well as the Ademollo-Gatto theorem. It turns out that the effects of flavor SU(3) symmetry breaking are essential in reproducing the kaon semileptonic form factors. The present results are in a good agreement with experiments, and are compatible with other model calculations.

Two chiral models are used, the linear sigma model and the non-linear one. It is shown that the quark condensate, as other observables, is independent on the variant selected. The application to physical pions excludes the linear sigma model as a credible one. The non-linear models restricted to pure s-wave pion-nucleon scattering are examined. (author)

  16. The B=2 system in the chiral quark-soliton model with broken scale invariance

    Sarti, Valentina Mantovani; Vento, Vicente

    2013-01-01

    We study the interaction between two B=1 states in the Chiral-Dilaton Model with scale invariance where baryons are described as non-topological solitons arising from the interaction of chiral mesons and quarks. By using the hedgehog solution for the B=1 states we construct, via a product ansatz, three possible B=2 configurations to analyse the role of the relative orientation of the hedgehog quills in the dynamics. We investigate the behaviour of these solutions in the range of long and intermediate distances between the two solitons. Since the product ansatz breaks down as the two solitons get close, we explore the short range distances regime by building up a six quarks bag and by evaluating the interaction energy as a function of the inter-soliton separation. We calculate the interaction energy as a function of the inter-soliton distance for the B=2 system and we show that for small separations the six quarks bag, assuming a hedgehog structure, provides a stable bound state that at large separations conne...

    2013-09-01

    The charge radii of the spin-$\\dfrac{1}{2}^{+}$ octet and spin-$\\dfrac{3}{2}^{+}$ decuplet baryons have been calculated in the framework of chiral constituent quark model ( CQM) using a general parametrization method (GPM). Our results are not only comparable with the latest experimental studies but also agree with other phenomenological models. The effects of (3) symmetry breaking pertaining to the strangeness contribution and GPM parameters pertaining to the one-, two- and three-quark contributions have also been investigated in detail and are found to be the key parameters in understanding the non-zero values for the neutral octet $(n, \\sum^{0}, \\Xi, )$ and decuplet $(^{0}, \\sum^{*0}, \\Xi^{*0})$ baryons.

    We apply the non-local chiral quark model to study vector and axial pion-to-photon transition amplitudes that are needed as a nonperturbative input to estimate the cross section of pion annihilation into the real and virtual photon. We use a simple form of the non-locality that allows to perform all calculations in the Minkowski space and guaranties polynomiality of the TDA's. We note only residual dependence on the precise form of the cut-off function, however vector TDA that is symmetric in skewedness parameter in the local quark model is no longer symmetric in the non-local case. We calculate also the transition form-factors and compare them with existing experimental parametrizations.

  20. Nucleon shape and electromagnetic form factors in the chiral constituent quark model

    Dahiya, Harleen

    2010-01-01

    The electromagnetic form factors are the most fundamental quantities to describe the internal structure of the nucleon and the shape of a spatially extended particle is determined by its intrinsic quadrupole moment which can be related to the charge radii. We have calculated the electromagnetic form factors, nucleon charge radii and the intrinsic quadrupole moment of the nucleon in the framework of chiral constituent quark model. The results obtained are comparable to the latest experimental studies and also show improvement over some theoretical interpretations.

    We perform a systematic study of $B\\bar{B}^*$, $B^*\\bar{B}^*$, $D\\bar{D}^*$ and $D^*\\bar{D}^*$ systems by using effective interaction in our chiral quark model. Our results show that the interactions of $B\\bar{B}^*$, $B^*\\bar{B}^*$, $D\\bar{D}^*$ and $D^*\\bar{D}^*$ states are attractive, which consequently result in $B\\bar{B}^*$, $B^*\\bar{B}^*$, $D\\bar{D}^*$ and $D^*\\bar{D}^*$ bound states.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Recent developments on an intriguing connection between the quark-bag description of the baryons (nucleons in particular) and the Skyrmion model are discussed in terms of the constraints coming from chiral anomalies. Topics treated are the leaking baryon charge, axial charge and energy density; the role of chiral anomalies; the role of Skyrme's quartic term and the connection to the meson degrees of freedom; and finally some qualitative implications in nuclei. The presentation is purposely descriptive and intuitive instead of mathematically precise

  5. Soft matrix elements in the non-local chiral quark model

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In presence of the hard scale amplitudes for high energy processes factorize into perturbative and soft part. While the former can be calculated within QCD, the latter has to be either obtained from experiment or treated by non-perturbative methods. One of the possibilities is to use low energy effective models, which incorporate dynamical chiral symmetry breaking, as a one of the most important phenomena at this scale. Moreover, realistic models have to take into account the non-local interactions. In the present talk we consider semibosonized Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model, where the non-locality emerges as a momentum dependence of constituent quark mass. Technically, it serves as a natural way of Lorentz covariant regulator of the loop integrals at high momenta, which is needed in order to make the calculations finite. On the other hand, momentum dependence of the mass forces us to replace standard local currents by the non-local ones. Their precise form is in general not restricted, therefore they have to be modelled. In order to demonstrate simple choice of the non-local vector current, we use the photon distribution amplitudes and an ansatz for the momentum dependence of mass allowing for analytic calculations. As an example of the more advanced applications of the non-local chiral quark model (NCQM), we consider recently proposed pion-photon transition distribution amplitudes (TDA). They are in some sense similar to the ordinary generalized parton distribution functions, however they are non diagonal in the states - instead of transition between two hadrons with different momenta we deal with the hadron and the real photon. TDA's appear as a universal non perturbative input in backward Compton scattering or hadron-antihadron annihilation into two photons. From the point of view of the NCQM's TDA's are very interesting objects to study, because they have to satisfy several properties originating from Lorentz invariance (so called polynomiality), Ward identities and

  6. Topological and nontopological solutions for the chiral bag model with constituent quarks

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The three-phase version of the hybrid chiral bag model, containing the phase of asymptotic freedom, the hadronization phase as well as the intermediate phase of constituent quarks is proposed. For this model the self-consistent solutions of different topology are found in (1 + 1)D with due regard for fermion vacuum polarization effects. The renormalized total energy of the bag is studied as a function of its geometry and topological charge. It is shown that in the case of nonzero topological charge there exists a set of configurations being the local minima of the total energy of the bag and containing all the three phases, while in the nontopological case the minimum of the total energy of the bag corresponds to vanishing size of the phase of asymptotic freedom

    In the first part of the review we discuss the effective nonlocal approach in the quantum field theory. It concerns primary the historical retrospective of this approach, and than we concentrate on the interaction of matter particles (fermions and bosons) with the (abelian and nonabelian) gauge fields. In the second part of the review we consider the hadronic corrections (vacuum polarization) to the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon g - 2 factor discussed within the SUf(2) nonlocal chiral quark model. This is considered in the leading and, partially, in the next-to-leading orders (the effect of the fermion propagator dressing due to pion field) of expansion in small parameter 1/ N c ( N c is the number of colors in QCD).

    2016-01-01

    The structure of $d^*(2380)$ is re-studied with the single cluster structure in the chiral SU(3) quark model which has successfully been employed to explain the scattering and binding behaviors of baryonic systems. The mass and width are explicitly calculated with two types of trial wave functions. The result shows that the $(0s)^6 [6]_{orb}$ configuration is easy to convert to the configuration with the same $[6]_{orb}$ symmetry but $2\\hbar \\omega$ excitation back and forth, however, it is seldom to turn into a two-cluster configuration with a (1s) relative motion in between. The resultant mass and width are about $2394$MeV and $25$MeV, respectively, and the stable size is about $0.75fm$, which are consistent with both the results in the two-cluster configuration calculation and the data measured by the COSY collaboration. It seems that the observed $d^*$ is a six-quark dominated exotic state with a spherical shape and breath mode in the coordinate space. Moreover, if $d^*$ does have $2\\hbar \\omega$ excitati...

  9. Parametrization of a nonlocal chiral quark model in the instantaneous three-flavor case. Basic formulas and tables

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We describe the basic formulation of the parametrization scheme for the instantaneous nonlocal chiral quark model in the three-flavor case. We choose to discuss the Gaussian, Lorentzian-type, Woods-Saxon and sharp cutoff (NJL) functional forms of the momentum dependence for the form factor of the separable interaction. The four parameters: light and strange quark masses, coupling strength (GS) and range of the interaction (Λ) have been fixed by the same phenomenological inputs: pion and kaon masses, pion decay constant and light quark mass in vacuum. The Woods-Saxon and Lorentzian-type form factors are suitable for an interpolation between sharp cutoff and soft momentum dependence. Results are tabulated for applications in models of hadron structure and quark matter at finite temperatures and chemical potentials where separable models have been proven successfully

  10. The Effect of Logarithmic Mesonic Potential on the Magnetic Catalysis in the Chiral Quark-Sigma Model

    CERN Document Server

    Abu-Shady, M

    2015-01-01

    The chiral symmetry breaking in the presence of external magnetic field is studied in the framework of logarithmic quark-sigma model. The effective logarithmic mesonic potential is employed and is numerically solved in the mean-field approximation. We find that the chiral symmetry breaking enhances in comparison with the original sigma model. Two sets of parameterization are investigated in the present model. We find that increasing coupling constant enhances the breaking symmetry while increasing sigma mass inhibits enhancing chiral broken vacuum state. A comparison with the Numbu-Jona-Lasinio model and the Schwinger-Dyson equation is discussed. We conclude that the logarithmic sigma model enhances the magnetic catalysis in comparison with the original sigma model and other models.

    2006-01-01

    Mesonic fluctuations around the chiral solitons are investigated in the SU(3) chiral quark soliton model. Since the soliton takes the non-hedgehog shape for the hyperons and the hedgehog one for the non-hedgehog baryons in our approach, the fluctuations also change according to the baryonic state. The quantum corrections to the masses (the Casimir energies) are estimated for the octet and decuplet baryons. The lack of the confinement in this model demands the cutoff on the energy of the fluctuations. Under the assumption that the value of the cutoff energy is $2\\times$(the lightest constituent quark mass), these calculation reproduces the masses of the baryons within 15 % error.

    The strong decays of charm-strange baryons up to N=2 shell are studied in a chiral quark model. The theoretical predictions for the well determined charm-strange baryons, $\\Xi_c^*(2645)$, $\\Xi_c(2790)$ and $\\Xi_c(2815)$, are in good agreement with the experimental data. This model is also extended to analyze the strong decays of the other newly observed charm-strange baryons $\\Xi_c(2930)$, $\\Xi_c(2980)$, $\\Xi_c(3055)$, $\\Xi_c(3080)$ and $\\Xi_c(3123)$. Our predictions are given as follows. (i) $\\Xi_c(2930)$ might be the first $P$-wave excitation of $\\Xi_c'$ with $J^P=1/2^-$, favors the $|\\Xi_c'\\ ^2P_\\lambda 1/2^->$ or $|\\Xi_c'\\ ^4P_\\lambda 1/2^->$ state. (ii) $\\Xi_c(2980)$ might correspond to two overlapping $P$-wave states $|\\Xi_c'\\ ^2P_\\rho 1/2^->$ and $|\\Xi_c'\\ ^2P_\\rho 3/2^->$, respectively. The $\\Xi_c(2980)$ observed in the $\\Lambda_c^+\\bar{K}\\pi$ final state is most likely to be the $|\\Xi_c'\\ ^2P_\\rho 1/2^->$ state, while the narrower resonance with a mass $m\\simeq 2.97$ GeV observed in the $\\Xi_c^*(2645...

    2003-01-01

    The structures of (ΩΩ)0+ and ([1]Ω)1+ are studied in the extended chiral SU(3) quark model in which vector meson exchanges are included. The effect from the vector meson fields is very similar to that from the one-gluon exchange (OGE) interaction. Both in the chiral SU(3) quark model and in the extended chiral SU(3) quark model,di-omega (ΩΩ)0+ is always deeply bound, with over one hundred MeV binding energy, and ([1]Ω)1+ 's binding energy is around 20 MeV. An analysis shows that the quark exchange effect plays a very important role for making di-omega (ΩΩ)0+ deeply bound.

    2010-01-01

    The Chiral String-Soliton Model is a joining of the two notions about the light chiral baryons: the chiral soliton models (like the Skyrme model) and the Quark-Gluon String models. The ChSS model is based on the Effective Chiral Lagrangian which was proposed in [arXiv:hep-ph/0306216]. We have studied the physical properties of the light chiral baryon within the framework of this ChSS model.

  16. The pion-nucleon Σ-term in a chiral quark model

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The pion/nucleon Σ-term is calculated in a linear σ-model based on the U(3) x U(3) quark effective Lagrangian. The importance of the pole diagram with the scalar meson f0(400 - 1200) is demonstrated. For the mass of this meson the value 400 MeV was chosen, which corresponds to the theoretical predictions taking into account singlet-octet mixing of scalar isoscalar mesons and glueball on the one hand and to recent experimental data on the other. The resulting value σ = 75 MeV is in agreement with the latest analysis of experimental data on the π-N scattering. It is shown that the hypothesis of the content of strange quarks in the valence structure of a nucleon is not necessary to reach agreement with experimental data. (Authors)

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Bergan, A.E.

    1996-12-31

    This theses is based upon four previously printed paper. The main result of the first paper was that a very small contribution to K{sup o}-anti K{sup o} was found for the siamese penguin diagram with a momentum dependent penguin coefficient. The calculation was done with different regularizations. The same momentum dependent penguin interaction was used in the second paper. Dimensional regularization made it possible to calculate analytical results for K{yields}{phi}, and a relatively small g{sub 8}{sup 1/2} factor was found due to large subleading terms. In the third paper nonperturbative effects on the B{sub K} parameter were obtained. To order (G{sup 3}) a vanishing result appeared due to a complete cancellation among the 20 contributing diagrams. In the fourth paper a calculation was made of K{yields}{phi} which included non-diagonal self-energy effects due to the s{yields}d transition. This calculation made it possible to include a heavy top quark. The calculation was done in two ways. First the unphysical K{yields}{phi} transition was calculated. The result was then related to the physical K{yields}2{phi} decay due to chiral symmetry. Then the same result was obtained by a direct calculation of K{yields}2{phi}. In the CP-conserving case the contribution was small while the CP-violating part was sizable. Due to a large cancellation between the operator Q{sub 6} and Q{sub 8} the contribution was of the same size as {epsilon}/{epsilon} itself. 76 refs.

    We report on the first lattice calculation of the QCD phase transition using chiral fermions with physical quark masses. This calculation uses 2+1 quark flavors, spatial volumes between (4 fm)(3) and (11 fm)(3) and temperatures between 139 and 196 MeV. Each temperature is calculated at a single lattice spacing corresponding to a temporal Euclidean extent of N(t) = 8. The disconnected chiral susceptibility, χ(disc) shows a pronounced peak whose position and height depend sensitively on the quark mass. We find no metastability near the peak and a peak height which does not change when a 5 fm spatial extent is increased to 10 fm. Each result is strong evidence that the QCD "phase transition" is not first order but a continuous crossover for m(π) = 135 MeV. The peak location determines a pseudocritical temperature T(c) = 155(1)(8) MeV, in agreement with earlier staggered fermion results. However, the peak height is 50% greater than that suggested by previous staggered results. Chiral SU(2)(L) × SU(2)(R) symmetry is fully restored above 164 MeV, but anomalous U(1)(A) symmetry breaking is nonzero above T(c) and vanishes as T is increased to 196 MeV. PMID:25192088

    Considering a QCD chiral symmetry breaking model where the gap equation contains an effective confining propagator and a dressed gluon propagator with a dynamically generated mass, we verify that the chiral symmetry is restored for a large number of quarks $n_{f}\\approx 7-13$. We discuss the uncertainty in the results, that is related to the determination of the string tension ($K_{F}$), appearing in the confining propagator, and the effective gluon mass ($m_{g}$) at large $n_{f}$.

The same physics can be described either as chiral symmetry breaking (quark-antiquark pairing) or as superconductivity (quark-quark pairing).

  1. Effective meson lagrangian with chiral and heavy quark symmetries from quark flavor dynamics

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    By bosonization of an extended NJL model we derive an effective meson theory which describes the interplay between chiral symmetry and heavy quark dynamics. This effective theory is worked out in the low-energy regime using the gradient expansion. The resulting effective lagrangian describes strong and weak interactions of heavy B and D mesons with pseudoscalar Goldstone bosons and light vector and axial-vector mesons. Heavy meson weak decay constants, coupling constants and the Isgur-Wise function are predicted in terms of the model parameters partially fixed from the light quark sector. Explicit SU(3)F symmetry breaking effects are estimated and, if possible, confronted with experiment. ((orig.))

    In this paper we argue that the strongly coupled quark-gluon plasma can be considered as a chiral superfluid. The ''normal'' component of the fluid is the thermalized matter in common sense, while the ''superfluid'' part consists of long wavelength (chiral) fermionic states moving independently. We use several nonperturbative techniques to demonstrate that. First, we analyze the fermionic spectrum in the deconfinement phase (T{sub c}chiral fermionic modes. Third, we use relativistic hydrodynamics for macroscopic description of the effective theory obtained after the bosonization. Finally, solving the hydrodynamic equations in gradient expansion, we find that in the presence of external electromagnetic fields the motion of the ''superfluid'' component gives rise to the chiral magnetic, chiral electric and dipole wave effects. Latter two effects are specific for a two-component fluid, which provides us with crucial experimental tests of the model.

    The quark propagator in the Landau gauge is studied on the lattice,including the quenched and the unquenched results.No obvious unquenched effects are found by comparing the quenched quark propagator with the dynamical one.For the quenched and unquenched configurations,the results with different quark masses have been computed.For the quark mass function,a nonlinear chiral extrapolating behavior is found in the in/tared region for both the quenched and dynamical results.

  5. Spontaneous chiral-symmetry breaking of lattice QCD with massless dynamical quarks

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2007-01-01

    One of the most challenging issues in QCD is the investigation of spontaneous chiral-symmetry breaking, which is characterized by the non-vanishing chiral condensate when the bare fermion mass is zero. In standard methods of the lattice gauge theory, one has to perform expensive simulations at multiple bare quark masses, and employ some modeled functions to extrapolate the data to the chiral limit. This paper applies the probability distribution function method to computing the chiral condensate in lattice QCD with massless dynamical quarks, without any ambiguous mass extrapolation. The results for staggered quarks indicate that this might be a promising and efficient method for investigating the spontaneous chiral-symmetry breaking in lattice QCD, which deserves further investigation.

  7. The chiral phase transition for QCD with sextet quarks

    CERN Document Server

    Sinclair, D K

    2011-01-01

    QCD with 2 massless colour-sextet quarks is studied as a model of Walking Technicolor. We simulate lattice QCD with 2 light color-sextet staggered quarks at finite temperature, and use the dependence of the coupling at the chiral transition on the temporal extent, $N_t$, of the lattice in lattice units to study the running of the bare lattice coupling with lattice spacing. Our goal is to determine whether this theory is QCD-like and `walks', or if it is conformal. If it is QCD-like, the coupling at the chiral transition should tend to zero as $N_t \\rightarrow \\infty$ in a manner controlled by asymptotic freedom, i.e. by the perturbative $\\beta$-function. On the other hand, if this theory is conformal, this coupling will approach a non-zero limit in the $N_t \\rightarrow \\infty$ limit. We are extending our simulations on an $N_t=8$ lattice to determine the position of the chiral transition with greater accuracy, and are performing simulations on an $N_t=12$ lattice.

    It is shown that the spin polarized condensate appears in quark matter at high baryon density and low temperature due to the tensor-type four-point interaction in the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio-type model as a low energy effective theory of quantum chromodynamics. It is indicated within this low energy effective model that the chiral symmetry is broken again by the spin polarized condensate as increasing the quark number density, while the chiral symmetry restoration occurs in which the chiral condensate disappears at a certain density.

    2005-01-01

    Motivated by the possibility that nonets of scalar mesons might be described as mixtures of "two quark" and "four quark" components, we further study a toy model in which corresponding chiral nonets (containing also the pseudoscalar partners) interact with each other. Although the "two quark" and "four quark" chiral fields transform identically under SU(3)$_L \\times$ SU(3)$_R$ transformations they transform differently under the U(1)$_A$ transformation which essentially counts total (quark + antiquark) content of the mesons. To implement this we formulate an effective Lagrangian which mocks up the U(1)$_A$ behavior of the underlying QCD. We derive generating equations which yield Ward identity type relations based only on the assumed symmetry structure. This is applied to the mass spectrum of the low lying pseudoscalars and scalars. as well as their "excitations". Assuming isotopic spin invariance, it is possible to disentangle the amount of"two quark" vs."four quark" content in the pseudoscalar $\\pi, K ,\\eta...

  10. Hadronic interactions from effective chiral Lagrangians of quarks and gluons

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We discuss the combined used of the techniques of effective chiral field theory and the field theoretic method known as Fock-Tani representation to derive effective hadron interactions. The Fock-Tani method is based on a change of representation by means of a unitary transformation such that the composite hadrons are redescribed by elementary-particle field operators. Application of the unitary transformation on the microscopic quark-quark interaction derived from a chiral effective Lagrangian leads to chiral effective interactions describing all possible processes involving hadrons and their constituents. The formalism is illustrated by deriving the one-pion-exchange potential between the nucleons using the quark-gluon effective chiral Lagrangian of Manohar and Georgi. We also present the results of a study of the saturation properties of the nuclear matter using this formalism. (author). 9 refs., 2 figs

    Recent theoretical studies have provided new insight into the intrinsic transverse momentum distributions of valence and sea quarks in the nucleon at a low scale. The valence quark transverse momentum distributions (q - qbar) are governed by the nucleon's inverse hadronic size R{sup -1} ~ 0.2 GeV and drop steeply at large p{sub T}. The sea quark distributions (qbar) are in large part generated by non-perturbative chiral-symmetry breaking interactions and extend up to the scale rho{sup -1} ~ 0.6 GeV. These findings have many implications for modeling the initial conditions of perturbative QCD evolution of TMD distributions (starting scale, shape of p{sub T}. distributions, coordinate-space correlation functions). The qualitative difference between valence and sea quark intrinsic p{sub T}. distributions could be observed experimentally, by comparing the transverse momentum distributions of selected hadrons in semi-inclusive deep-inelastic scattering, or those of dileptons produced in pp and pbar-p scattering.

  12. A chiral quark-motivated meson model and the CP violation in K → 3π decays

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model is introduced as an approximation of the QCD, and in section 2 from this a meson model is derived by means of the functional integration. On the basis of the effective quark model of Vainstain-Shifman-Sacharov, which describes the weak interaction of quarks, weak and electromagnetic meson currents are derived. The so obtained meson model describes strong, weak, and electromagnetic interactions of mesons. In the 3rd section K → 2π, 3π decays are studied. After an analysis of experimental data a prediction on the direct CP violation in charged K → 3π decays is made. Starting from this estimation an experiment for the measurement of the CP asymmetry of the decay K± → π±π0π0 at an existing facility at the accelerator U-70 in Serpukhov is proposed. (orig./HSI)

    We investigate parity-violating electroweak asymmetries in the elastic scattering of polarized electrons off protons within the framework of the chiral quark-soliton model ($\\chi$QSM). We use as input the former results of the electromagnetic and strange form factors and newly calculated SU(3) axial-vector form factors, all evaluated with the same set of four parameters adjusted several years ago to general mesonic and baryonic properties. Based on this scheme, which yields positive electric and magnetic strange form factors with a $\\mu_s=(0.08-0.13)\\mu_N$, we determine the parity-violating asymmetries of elastic polarized electron-proton scattering. The results are in a good agreement with the data of the A4, HAPPEX, and SAMPLE experiments and reproduce the full $Q^2$-range of the G0-data. We also predict the parity-violating asymmetries for the backward G0 experiment.

  15. Vacuum quark condensate, chiral Lagrangian, and Bose-Einstein statistics

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In a series of articles it was recently claimed that the quantum chromodynamic (QCD) condensates are not the properties of the vacuum but of the hadrons and are confined inside them. We point out that this claim is incompatible with the chiral Lagrangian and Bose-Einstein statistics of the Goldstone bosons (pions) in chiral limit and conclude that the quark condensate must be the property of the QCD vacuum.

  16. Chiral Quark Meson Theory for N and Δ

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Chiral Quark Meson Theory (CQMT) is a theory of effective interaction designed to describe the action of quantum chromodynamics in the ground state of the nucleon (N) and delta (Δ). It is conjectured that N and Δ are describable satisfactorily in terms of independently moving quarks. The quark wave function is restricted to be a single determinant. This precludes the possibility of describing a single nucleon. The theory must deal with a linear combination of N and Δ. The role of octet gluon towers was examined, with the finding that it can be simulated at the mean field level by a chiral invariant quark-meson lagrangian. Various nucleon properties were calculated. 24 refs., 5 figs., 2 tabs

  17. Toy model for two chiral nonets

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Motivated by the possibility that nonets of scalar mesons might be described as mixtures of 'two quark' and 'four quark' components, we further study a toy model in which corresponding chiral nonets (containing also the pseudoscalar partners) interact with each other. Although the 'two quark' and 'four quark' chiral fields transform identically under SU(3)LxSU(3)R transformations, they transform differently under the U(1)A transformation which essentially counts total (quark+antiquark) content of the mesons. To implement this, we formulate an effective Lagrangian which mocks up the U(1)A behavior of the underlying QCD. We derive generating equations which yield Ward identity type relations based only on the assumed symmetry structure. This is applied to the mass spectrum of the low lying pseudoscalars and scalars, as well as their 'excitations'. Assuming isotopic spin invariance, it is possible to disentangle the amount of 'two quark' vs 'four quark' content in the pseudoscalar π,K,η-type states and in the scalar κ-type states. It is found that a small 'four quark' content in the lightest pseudoscalars is consistent with a large 'four quark' content in the lightest of the scalar κ mesons. The present toy model also allows one to easily estimate the strength of a 'four quark' vacuum condensate. There seems to be a rich and interesting structure

    The quark potential model is extended to include the sea quark excitation using the random phase approximation.The effective quark interaction preserves the important QCD properties-chiral symmetry and confinement simultaneously.A primary qualitative analysis shows that the π meson as a well-known typical Goldstone boson and the other mesons made up of valence qq quark pair such as the ρ meson can also be described in this extended quark potential model.

  19. Chiral symmetry and quark-antiquark pair creation in a strong color-electromagnetic field

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We study the manifestation of chiral symmetry and q-q-bar pair creation in the presence of the external color-electromagnetic field, using the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model. We derive the compact formulae of the effective potential, the Dyson equation for the dynamical quark mass and the q-q-bar pair creation rate in the covariantly constant color-electromagnetic field. Our results are compared with those in other approaches. The chiral-symmetry restoration takes place by a strong color-electric field, and the rapid reduction of the dynamical quark mass is found around the critical field strength, εcr≅4GeV/fm. Natural extension to the three-flavor case including s-quarks is also done. Around quarks or antiquarks, chiral symmetry would be restored by the sufficiently strong color-electric field, which may lead to the chiral bag picture of hadrons. For the early stage for ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions, the possibility of the chiral-symmetry restoration is indicated in the central region just after the collisions. (author)

  20. Confinement, quark mass functions, and spontaneous chiral symmetry breaking in Minkowski space

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We formulate the covariant equations for quark-antiquark bound states in Minkowski space in the framework of the Covariant Spectator Theory. The quark propagators are dressed with the same kernel that describes the interaction between different quarks. We show that these equations are charge conjugation invariant, and that in the chiral limit of vanishing bare quark mass, a massless pseudoscalar bound state is produced in a Nambu--Jona-Lasinio (NJL) mechanism, which is associated with the Goldstone boson of spontaneous chiral symmetry breaking. In this introductory paper we test the formalism by using a simplified kernel consisting of a momentum-space $\\delta$-function with a vector Lorentz structure, to which one adds a mixed scalar and vector confining interaction. The scalar part of the confining interaction is not chirally invariant by itself, but decouples from the equations in the chiral limit and therefore allows the NJL mechanism to work. With this model we calculate the quark mass function, and we compare our Minkowski-space results to LQCD data obtained in Euclidean space. In a companion paper we apply this formalism to a calculation of the pion form factor

For the π0-exchange I point out a possible large enhancement when only connected contributions are included. For the quark-loop I include some comments about the more recent estimates of this contribution.

    We discuss how the simultaneous crossovers of deconfinement and chiral restoration can be realized. We propose a dynamical mechanism assuming that the effective potential gives a finite value of the chiral condensate if the Polyakov loop vanishes. Using a simple model, we demonstrate that our idea works well for small quark mass, though there should be further constraints to reach the perfect locking of two phenomena.

    We construct a chiral Lagrangian for doubly heavy baryons and heavy mesons that is invariant under heavy quark-diquark symmetry at leading order and includes the leading O(1/m{sub Q}) symmetry violating operators. The theory is used to predict the electromagnetic decay width of the J=3/2 member of the ground state doubly heavy baryon doublet. Numerical estimates are provided for doubly charm baryons. We also calculate chiral corrections to doubly heavy baryon masses and strong decay widths of low lying excited doubly heavy baryons.

  5. A Review of Heavy-Quark and Chiral Perturbation Theory

    CERN Document Server

    Naboulsi, R

    2003-01-01

    In this paper we discuss the relations between various decays that can be obtained by combining heavy-quark perturbation theory and chiral perturbation theory for the emission of soft pseudoscalar particles. In the heavy-quark limit of QCD the interactions of the heavy quark Q are simplified because of a new set of symmetries not manifestly present in the full QCD. This fact is usually used in the construction of the new effective theory where the heavy-quark mass goes to infinity $(m_Q\\gg \\Lambda_{QCD})$ with its four-velocity fixed. The spin-flavor symmetry group of this new theory with N heavy quarks is SU(2N) because the interactions of the heavy quarks are independent of their spins and flavors. This fact is widely used in the description of the semileptonic decays of $B$ mesons to $D$ and $D^\\ast$ mesons where heavy-quark symmetry allows a parameterization of the decay amplitudes in terms of the single Isgur-Wise function [1].

    2015-01-01

    Considering the density wave of scalar and pseudoscalar condensates, we study the response of quark matter to a weak external magnetic field. In an external magnetic field, the energy spectrum of the lowest Landau level becomes asymmetric about zero, which is closely related to chiral anomaly, and gives rise to the spontaneous magnetization. This mechanism may be one of candidates for the origin of the strong magnetic field in pulsars and/or magnetars.

  7. Quark Matter in a Parallel Electric and Magnetic Field Background: Equilibrated Chiral Density Effect on Chiral Phase Transition

    Ruggieri, M

    2016-01-01

    In this article we study spontaneous chiral symmetry breaking for quark matter in the background of an electric-magnetic flux tube with static, homogeneous and parallel electric field $\\bm E$ and magnetic field $\\bm B$. We use a Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model with a local kernel interaction to compute the relevant quantities to describe chiral symmetry breaking at finite temperature for a wide range of $E$ and $B$. We study the effect of the flux tube background on inverse catalysis of chiral symmetry breaking for $E$ and $B$ of the same order of magnitude. We then focus on the effect of equilibration of chiral density, $n_5$, produced dynamically by axial anomaly on the critical temperature. The equilibration of $n_5$, a consequence of chirality flipping processes in the thermal bath, allows for the introduction of the chiral chemical potential, $\\mu_5$, which is computed self-consistently as a function of temperature and field strength by coupling the number equation to the gap equation. We find that even if chir...

    We report on the first lattice calculation of the QCD phase transition using chiral fermions at physical values of the quark masses. This calculation uses 2+1 quark flavors, spatial volumes between (4 fm$)^3$ and (11 fm$)^3$ and temperatures between 139 and 196 MeV . Each temperature was calculated using a single lattice spacing corresponding to a temporal Euclidean extent of $N_t=8$. The disconnected chiral susceptibility, $\\chi_{\\rm disc}$ shows a pronounced peak whose position and height depend sensitively on the quark mass. We find no metastability in the region of the peak and a peak height which does not change when a 5 fm spatial extent is increased to 10 fm. Each result is strong evidence that the QCD ``phase transition'' is not first order but a continuous cross-over for $m_\\pi=135$ MeV. The peak location determines a pseudo-critical temperature $T_c = 155(1)(8)$ MeV. Chiral $SU(2)_L\\times SU(2)_R$ symmetry is fully restored above 164 MeV, but anomalous $U(1)_A$ symmetry breaking is non-zero above $T...

The effective quark interaction preserves the important QCD properties - chiral symmetry and confinementsimultaneously.

  10. Chiral symmetry restoration in effective Lagrangian models

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The restoration is studied of chiral symmetry in dense baryon matter using effective lagrangian models of QCD, in which baryons are described as topological solitons. Starting from the breaking of scale invariance and chiral symmetry in the QCD vacuum, the foundations are discussed of effective lagrangians and their relevance for applications to dense matter. Soliton models, such a the Skyrme model, show a phase transition at high densities, whose order parameter is the average scalar field. The properties are investigated of the two phases of the effective theory and show that the phase transition corresponds to the restoration of the chiral symmetry of QCD. It is argued that it should not be understood as deconfinement. The author then considers this phase transition in the context of the Cheshire Cat principle, which provides the link to the underlying quarks of QCD. An analogue of the Cheshire Cat property of this chiral bag model for baryons is found in solitons of effective lagrangians with a scalar glueball field. The Cheshire Cat interpretation of the results of effective lagrangians provides a consistent picture of chiral symmetry restoration at high densities. To verify this interpretation explicitly, the author finally generalizes the effective lagrangian approach to dense matter to a chiral bag model description with quark degrees of freedom

A minimum $\\Theta^+$ mass of 1620 MeV is obtained both for the ${1/2}^\\pm$ state. The mixing of various color structure configurations, which would reduce the mass of the penta-quark state, should be taking into account in the calculation of penta-quark mass.

    Considering the density wave of scalar and pseudoscalar condensates, we study the response of quark matter to a weak external magnetic field. In an external magnetic field, the energy spectrum of the lowest Landau level becomes asymmetric about zero, which is closely related to chiral anomaly. This spectral asymmetry gives rise to spontaneous magnetization. This mechanism may be one of candidates for the origin of the strong magnetic field in magnetars. Furthermore, using the generalized Ginzburg-Landau(gGL) expansion, we show that magnetic susceptibility exhibits a peculiar feature

    Recent experiments indicate that a narrow baryonic state having strangeness +1 and mass of about 1540 MeV may be existing. Such a state was predicted in chiral model by Diakonov et al. In this work I compute the mass and width of this state in chiral color dielectric model. I show that the computed width is about 30 MeV. I find that the mass of the state can be fitted to the experimentally observed mass by invoking a color neutral vector field and its interaction with the quarks.

  14. Quark Interchange Model of Baryon Interactions.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Maslow, Joel Neal

    The strong interactions at low energy are traditionally described by meson field theories treating hadrons as point -like particles. Here a mesonic quark interchange model (QIM) is presented which takes into account the finite size of the baryons and the internal quark structure of hadrons. The model incorporates the basic quark-gluon coupling of quantum chromodynamics (QCD) and the MIT bag model for color confinement. Because the quark-gluon coupling constant is large and we assume that confinement excludes overlap of hadronic quark bags except at high momenta, a non-perturbative method of nuclear interactions is presented. The QIM allows for exchange of quark quantum numbers at the bag boundary between colliding hadrons mediated at short distances by a gluon exchange between two quarks within the hadronic interior. This generates, via a Fierz transformation, an effective space-like t channel exchange of color singlet (qq) states that can be identified with the low lying meson multiplets. Thus, a one boson exchange (OBE) model is obtained that allows for comparison with traditional phenomenological models of nuclear scattering. Inclusion of strange quarks enables calculation of Yn scattering. The NN and YN coupling constants and the nucleon form factors show good agreement with experimental values as do the deuteron low energy data and the NN low energy phase shifts. Thus, the QIM provides a simple model of strong interactions that is chirally invariant, includes confinement and allows for an OBE form of hadronic interaction at low energies and momentum transfers.

    Malheiro, M; Nuss, L G; Fiolhais, M; Taurines, A R

    2001-01-01

    The Chromodielectric Model with a quartic potential is used to describe homogeneous strange quark matter, in beta equilibrium, at high densities. Two equations of state (EOS) are obtained for the same set of model parameters: one corresponds to a chiral restored phase with almost massless quarks and no electrons, and the other to a chiral broken phase. Depending on the model parameters, a phase transition between the two phases may occur. With those EOS the structure of compact stars is investigated and two types of stars are obtained: larger ones with radius $R\\sim 10 - 12$ km, a hadron mantle and a mass $M\\sim 1- 2 M_\\odot$, and smaller pure quark stars, in a chiral restored phase, with $R\\sim 5 - 8$ km, $M\\sim M_\\odot$ and a large baryon density at the edge. The phenomenology of the compact object RX J185635-3754, whose best fit for the radius and mass is $R\\sim 6$ km and $M\\sim 0.9 M_\\odot$, lies in the class of small quark stars predicted by the chromodielectric model.

  19. Momentum scale dependence of the net quark number fluctuations near chiral crossover

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We investigate properties of the net baryon number fluctuations near chiral crossover in a hot and dense medium of strongly interacting quarks. The chirally invariant quark–antiquark interactions are modeled by an effective quark–meson Lagrangian. To preserve remnants of criticality in the O(4) universality class, we apply the functional renormalization group method to describe thermodynamics near chiral crossover. Our studies are focused on the influence of the momentum cuts on the critical behavior of different cumulants of the net quark number fluctuations. We use the momentum scale dependence of the flow equation to examine how the suppression of the momentum modes in the infrared and ultraviolet regimes modifies generic properties of fluctuations expected in the O(4) universality class. We show that the pion mass mπ is a natural soft momentum scale at which cumulants are saturated at their critical values, whereas for scales larger than 2mπ the characteristic O(4) structure of the higher-order cumulants gets lost. These results indicate that when measuring fluctuations of the net baryon number in heavy ion collisions to search for a partial restoration of chiral symmetry or critical point, special care must be taken when introducing kinematical cuts on the fluctuation measurements

  1. Chiral symmetry breaking in brane models

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We discuss the chiral symmetry breaking in general intersecting Dq/Dp brane models consisting of Nc Dq-branes and a single Dp-brane with an s-dimensional intersection. There exists a QCD-like theory localized at the intersection and the Dq/Dp model gives a holographic description of it. The rotational symmetry of directions transverse to both of the Dq and Dp-branes can be identified with a chiral symmetry, which is non-Abelian for certain cases. The asymptotic distance between the Dq-branes and the Dp-brane corresponds to a quark mass. By studying the probe Dp-brane dynamics in a Dq-brane background in the near horizon and large Nc limit we find that the chiral symmetry is spontaneously broken and there appear (pseudo-)Nambu-Goldstone bosons. We also discuss the models at finite temperature

  2. Generalized simplicial chiral models

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Using the auxiliary field representation of the simplicial chiral models on a (d-1)-dimensional simplex, the simplicial chiral models are generalized through replacing the term Tr(AA†) in the Lagrangian of these models by an arbitrary class function of AA†; V(AA†). This is the same method used in defining the generalized two-dimensional Yang-Mills theories (gYM2) from ordinary YM2. We call these models the 'generalized simplicial chiral models'. Using the results of the one-link integral over a U(N) matrix, the large-N saddle-point equations for eigenvalue density function ρ(z) in the weak (β>βc) and strong (βc) regions are computed. In d=2, where the model is in some sense related to the gYM2 theory, the saddle-point equations are solved for ρ(z) in the two regions, and the explicit value of critical point βc is calculated for V(B)=Tr Bn (B=AA†). For V(B)=Tr B2,Tr B3, and TrB4, the critical behaviour of the model at d=2 is studied, and by calculating the internal energy, it is shown that these models have a third order phase transition

    The relation between the deconfinement and chiral phase transition is explored in the framework of an Polyakov-loop-extended two-flavor quark-meson (PQM) model. In this model the Polyakov loop dynamics is represented by a background temporal gauge field which also couples to the quarks. As a novelty an explicit quark chemical potential and N_f-dependence in the Polyakov loop potential is proposed by using renormalization group arguments. The behavior of the Polyakov loop as well as the chiral...

    In preparation of lattice studies of the two-color QCD phase diagram we study chiral restoration and deconfinement at finite temperature with two flavors of staggered quarks using an RHMC algorithm on GPUs. We first study unquenching effects in local Polyakov loop distributions, and the Polyakov loop potential obtained via Legendre transformation, in a fixed-scale approach for heavier quarks. We also present the chiral condensate and the corresponding susceptibility over the lattice coupling across the chiral transition for lighter quarks. Using Ferrenberg-Swendsen reweighting we extract the maxima of the chiral susceptibility in order to determine pseudo-critical couplings on various lattices suitable for chiral extrapolations. These are then used to fix the relation between coupling and temperature in the chiral limit.

    We describe baryons as quark-diquark bound states at finite temperature and density within the NJL model for chiral symmetry breaking and restoration in quark matter. Based on a generalized Beth-Uhlenbeck approach to mesons and diquarks we present in a first step the thermodynamics of quark-diquark matter which includes the Mott dissociation of diquarks at finite temperature. In a second step we solve the Bethe-Salpeter equation for the baryon as a quark-diquark bound state in quark-diquark m...

    The exotic baryon + (1540 MeV) is visualized as an expected (iso) rotational excitation in the chiral soliton model. It is also argued as a pentaquark baryon state in a constituent quark model with strong diquark correlations. I contrast these two points of view; observe the similarities and differences between the two pictures. Collective excitation, the characteristic of chiral soliton model, points toward small mixing of representations in the wake of (3) breaking. In contrast, constituent quark models prefer near `ideal' mixing, similar to - mixing.

    The Nambu--Jona-Lasinio model (NJL) is extended to incorporate heavy quark spin-symmetry. In this model baryons containing one heavy quark are analyzed as bound-states of light baryons, represented as chiral solitons, and mesons containing one heavy quark. From related studies in Skyrme type models, the ground-state heavy baryon is known to arise for the heavy meson in a P--wave configuration. In the limit of an infinitely large quark mass the heavy meson wave-function is sharply peaked at th...

  11. The NJL Model for Quark Fragmentation Functions

    2009-10-01

    A description of fragmentation functions which satisfy the momentum and isospin sum rules is presented in an effective quark theory. Concentrating on the pion fragmentation function, we first explain the reason why the elementary (lowest order) fragmentation process q → qπ is completely inadequate to describe the empirical data, although the “crossed” process π → qq describes the quark distribution functions in the pion reasonably well. Then, taking into account cascade-like processes in a modified jet-model approach, we show that the momentum and isospin sum rules can be satisfied naturally without introducing any ad-hoc parameters. We present numerical results for the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model in the invariant mass regularization scheme, and compare the results with the empirical parametrizations. We argue that this NJL-jet model provides a very useful framework to calculate the fragmentation functions in an effective chiral quark theory.

    2013-01-01

    Based on the fully dressed quark propagator and chiral perturbation theory,we study the ratio of the strange quark mass ms to up or down quark mass mu,d.The ratio is related to the determination of quark masses which are fundamental input parameters of QCD Lagrangian in the Standard Model of particle physics and can not be directly measured since the quark is confined within a hadron.An accurate determination of these QCD free parameters is extremely important for both phenomenological and theoretical applications.We begin with a brief introduction to the non-perturbation QCD theory,and then study the mass ratio in the framework of the chiral perturbation theory (xPT) with a parameterized fully dressed quark propagator which describes confining fully dressed quark propagation and is analytic everywhere in the finite complex p2-plane and has no Lehmann representation so there are no quark production thresholds in any theoretical calculations of observable data.Our prediction for the ratio ms/mu,d is consistent with other model predictions such as Lattice QCD,instanton model,QCD sum rules and the empirical values used widely in the literature.As a by-product of this study,our theoretical results,together with other predictions of physical quantities that used this quark propagator in our previous publications,clearly show that the parameterized form of the fully dressed quark propagator is an applicable and reliable approximation to the solution of the Dyson-Schwinger Equation of quark propagator in the QCD.

    2015-01-01

    We present two minimal extensions of the standard model that gives rise to baryogensis and include heavy color-triplet scalars interacting with a light Majorana fermion that can be the dark matter (DM) candidate. The electroweak charges of the new scalars govern their couplings to quarks of different chirality, which leads to different collider signals. These models predict monotop events at the LHC and the energy spectrum of decay products of highly polarized top quarks can be used to establish the chiral nature of the interactions involving the heavy scalars and the DM.

    We calculate the structure functions of an isoscalar nuclear target for the deep inelastic scattering by leptons in an extended version of the chiral bag model which incorporates the qanti q structure of the pions in the cloud. Bjorken scaling and Regge behavior are satisfied. The model calculation reproduces the low-x behavior of the data but fails to explain the medium- to large-x behavior. Evolution of the quark structure functions seem inevitable to attempt a connection between the low-energy models and the high-energy behavior of quantum chromodynamics. (orig.)

    Using the chiral soliton model and heavy quark symmetry we study baryons containing two heavy quarks. If there exists a stable (under strong interactions) meson consisting of two heavy quarks and two light ones, then we find that there always exists a state of this meson bound to a chiral soliton and to a chiral anti-soliton, corresponding to a two heavy quark baryon and a baryon containing two heavy anti-quarks and five light quarks, or a ``heptaquark".

Parameters of the present model are essentially based on nucleon–nucleon and nucleon–hyperon interactions. The mass of the scalar meson is taken as 635 MeV. Using this model, the phase shifts of the and partial waves of the kaon nucleon elastic scattering are investigated for isospins 0 and 1. The results of the numerical calculations of different partial waves are in good agreement with experimental data.

    The mass of the dibaryon having spin, parity =0+, isospin = 0 and strangeness -2 is computed using chiral color dielectric model. The bare wave function is constructed as a product of two color-singlet three-quark clusters and then it is properly antisymmetrized by considering appropriate exchange operators for spin, flavor and color. Color magnetic energy due to gluon exchange, meson self energy and energy correction due to center of mass motion are computed. The calculation shows that the mass of the particle is 80 to 160 MeV less than twice mass.

  4. Chiral matrix model of the semi-QGP in QCD

    Science.gov (United States)

    Pisarski, Robert D.; Skokov, Vladimir V.

    2016-08-01

    Previously, a matrix model of the region near the transition temperature, in the "semi"quark gluon plasma, was developed for the theory of S U (3 ) gluons without quarks. In this paper we develop a chiral matrix model applicable to QCD by including dynamical quarks with 2 +1 flavors. This requires adding a nonet of scalar fields, with both parities, and coupling these to quarks through a Yukawa coupling, y . Treating the scalar fields in mean field approximation, the effective Lagrangian is computed by integrating out quarks to one loop order. As is standard, the potential for the scalar fields is chosen to be symmetric under the flavor symmetry of S U (3 )L×S U (3 )R×Z (3 )A, except for a term linear in the current quark mass, mqk. In addition, at a nonzero temperature T it is necessary to add a new term, ˜mqkT2. The parameters of the gluon part of the matrix model are identical to those for the pure glue theory without quarks. The parameters in the chiral matrix model are fixed by the values, at zero temperature, of the pion decay constant and the masses of the pions, kaons, η , and η'. The temperature for the chiral crossover at Tχ=155 MeV is determined by adjusting the Yukawa coupling y . We find reasonable agreement with the results of numerical simulations on the lattice for the pressure and related quantities. In the chiral limit, besides the divergence in the chiral susceptibility there is also a milder divergence in the susceptibility between the Polyakov loop and the chiral order parameter, with critical exponent β -1 . We compute derivatives with respect to a quark chemical potential to determine the susceptibilities for baryon number, the χ2 n. Especially sensitive tests are provided by χ4-χ2 and by χ6, which changes in sign about Tχ. The behavior of the susceptibilities in the chiral matrix model strongly suggests that as the temperature increases from Tχ, that the transition to deconfinement is significantly quicker than indicated by the

    This is the second paper of the series aimed at understanding of the ensemble of the instanton-dyons, now with two flavors of light dynamical quarks. The partition function is appended by the fermionic factor, $(det T)^{N_f}$ and Dirac eigenvalue spectra at small values are derived from the numerical simulation of 64 dyons. Those spectra show clear chiral symmetry breaking pattern at high dyon density. Within current accuracy, the confinement and chiral transitions occur at very similar densities.

    Resonant production of fourth chiral family up quark at the LHC via anomalous interactions have been analyzed. It is shown that search for resonances in W^{+}b final states could lead to discovery of the fourth chiral family and simultaneously determine scale of the new physics, presumabely related to the quark and lepton compositeness. Obtained results emphasize an importance of W-leading jet invariant mass analysis in search for W+jets final states at the LHC, both with and without b-tagging.

  7. NJL model approach to diquarks and baryons in quark matter

    2015-01-01

    We describe baryons as quark-diquark bound states at finite temperature and density within the NJL model for chiral symmetry breaking and restoration in quark matter. Based on a generalized Beth-Uhlenbeck approach to mesons and diquarks we present in a first step the thermodynamics of quark-diquark matter which includes the Mott dissociation of diquarks at finite temperature. In a second step we solve the Bethe-Salpeter equation for the baryon as a quark-diquark bound state in quark-diquark matter. We obtain a stable, bound baryon even beyond the Mott temperature for diquark dissociation since the phase space occupation effect (Pauli blocking for quarks and Bose enhancement for diquarks) in the Bethe-Salpeter kernel for the nucleon approximately cancel so that the nucleon mass follows the in-medium behaviour of the quark and diquark masses towards chiral restoration. In this situation the baryon is obtained as a "borromean" three-quark state in medium because the two-particle state (diquark) is unbound while ...

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Overlap fermions are particularly well suited to study the finite temperature dynamics of the chiral symmetry restoration transition of QCD, which might be just an analytic crossover. Using gauge field configurations on a 243 x 10 lattice with Nf=2 flavours of dynamical Wilson-clover quarks generated by the DIK collaboration, we compute the lowest 50 eigenmodes of the overlap Dirac operator and try to locate the transition by fermionic means. We analyse the spectral density, local chirality and localisation properties of the low-lying modes and illustrate the changing topological and (anti-) selfdual structure of the underlying gauge fields across the transition.

    2015-01-01

    The vector type of interaction of the Thirring-Wess model was replaced by the chiral type and a new model was presented which was termed as chiral Thirring-Wess model in \\cite{THAR}. The model was studied there with a Faddeevian class of regularization that contained few ambiguity parameters with the apprehension that unitarity might be threatened like the chiral generation of the Schwinger model. In the present work it has been shown that no counter term containing the regularization ambiguity is needed for this model to be physically sensible. So the chiral Thirring-Wess model is studied here without the presence of any ambiguity parameter and it has been found that the model not only remain exactly solvable but also does not loose the unitarity like the chiral generation of the Schwinger model. The phase space structure and the theoretical spectrum of this new model has been determined in the present scenario through Dirac's method of quantization of constraint system. The theoretical spectrum is found to ...

    With an exact chiral symmetry, overlap fermions allow us to reach very light quark region. In the minimummps = 179 MeV, the quenched chiral logarithm diverge is examined. The chiral logarithm parameter δ is calculatedfrom both the pseudo-scalar meson mass mp2s diverge channel and the pseudo-scalar decay constant f p channel.In both the cases, we obtain δ = 0.25 ± 0.03. We also observe that the quenchedchiral logarithm diverge occursonly in the mps ≤400 MeV region.

  14. Chiral symmetry breaking and quark confinement in the nilpotency expansion of QCD

    CERN Document Server

    Caracciolo, Sergio

    2010-01-01

    We apply to lattice QCD a bosonization method previously developed in which dynamical bosons are generated by time-dependent Bogoliubov transformations. The transformed action can be studied by an expansion in the inverse of the nilpotency index, which is the number of fermionic states in the structure function of composite bosons. When this number diverges the model is solved by the saddle point method which has a variational interpretation. We give a stationary covariant solution for a background matter field whose fluctuations describe mesons. In the saddle point approximations live fermionic quasiparticles with quark quantum numbers which are confined, in the sense that they propagate only in pointlike color singlets. Conditions for chiral symmetry breaking are determined, to be studied numerically, and a derivation of mesons-nucleons action is outlined.

  15. Structure of the vacuum in the color dielectric model: confinement and chiral symmetry

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Two of the most important properties of Quantum Chromodynamic (QCD), spontaneous symmetry breaking of the vacuum and quark confinement at low energy, are first presented. Some important effective models for hadronic physics are then described. Putting QCD on the lattice and using the block-spin method, the color-dielectric model effective Lagrangian is obtained. The structure of the vacuum and the behaviour of uniform quark matter at high intensity are investigated in this model. Its original formulation is extended to handle chiral symmetry (by use of sigma model) and to include negative energy orbitals. At high baryonic density, the model describes the two phase transitions which are expected in QCD: deconfinement of quarks and chiral symmetry restoration. Finally, a heavy meson composed by a charmed quark anti-quark pair, is constructed, and the valence quarks confinement and the vacuum structure around them are studied

    1998-01-01

    In this two part series a chiral confining model of baryons is used to describe low--lying negative parity resonances $N^*$, $\\Delta^*$, $\\Lambda^*$ and $\\Sigma^*$ in the mean field approximation. A physical baryon in this model consists of interacting valence quarks, mesons and a color and chiral singlet hybrid field coexisting inside a dynamically generated confining region. This first paper presents the quark contribution to the masses and wave functions of negative parity baryons calculated with an effective spin--isospin dependent instanton induced interaction. It does not include meson exchanges between quarks. The three--quark wave functions are used to calculate meson--excited baryon vertex functions to lowest order in meson--quark coupling. When the baryons are on mass--shell each of these vertex functions is a product of a coupling constant and a form factor. As examples, quark contributions to $N^*$ hadronic form factors as well as axial coupling constants are extracted from the vertex functions an...

    Ledwig, Tim; Goeke, Klaus

    2008-01-01

    We investigate the vector transition form factors of the nucleon and vector meson $K^*$ to the pentaquark baryon $\\Theta^+$ within the framework of the SU(3) chiral quark-soliton model. We take into account the rotational $1/N_c$ and linear $m_{\\rm s}$ corrections, assuming isospin symmetry and employing the symmetry-conserving quantization. It turns out that the leading-order contributions to the form factors are almost cancelled by the rotational corrections. Because of this, the flavor SU(3) symmetry-breaking terms yield sizeable effects on the transition form factors. In particular, the main contribution to the electric transition form factor comes from the wave-function corrections, which is a consequence of the generalized Ademollo-Gatto theorem derived in the present work. We estimate with the help of the vector meson dominance the $K^*$ vector and tensor coupling constants for the $\\Theta^+$: $g_{K^{*}N\\Theta}=0.74 - 0.87$ and $f_{K^{*}N\\Theta}=0.53 - 1.16$. We argue that the outcome of the present wo...

  20. The chiral phase transition for lattice QCD with 2 color-sextet quarks

    Science.gov (United States)

    Kogut, J. B.; Sinclair, D. K.

    2015-09-01

    QCD with 2 flavors of massless color-sextet quarks is studied as a possible walking-Technicolor candidate. We simulate the lattice version of this model at finite temperatures near to the chiral-symmetry restoration transition, to determine whether it is indeed a walking theory (QCD-like with a running coupling which evolves slowly over an appreciable range of length scales) or if it has an infrared fixed point, making it a conformal field theory. The lattice spacing at this transition is decreased towards zero by increasing the number Nt of lattice sites in the temporal direction. Our simulations are performed at Nt=4 ,6 ,8 ,12 , on lattices with spatial extent much larger than the temporal extent. A range of small fermion masses is chosen to make predictions for the chiral (zero mass) limit. We find that the bare lattice coupling does decrease as the lattice spacing is decreased. However, it decreases more slowly than would be predicted by asymptotic freedom. We discuss whether this means that the coupling is approaching a finite value as lattice Nt is increased—the conformal option, or if the apparent disagreement with the scaling predicted by asymptotic freedom is because the lattice coupling is a poor expansion parameter, and the theory walks. Currently, evidence favors QCD with 2 color-sextet quarks being a conformal field theory. Other potential sources of disagreement with the walking hypothesis are also discussed. We also report an estimate of the position of the deconfinement transition for Nt=12 , needed for choosing parameters for zero-temperature simulations.

    2010-01-01

    The discovery of many particles, especially in the 50's, when the firsts accelerators appeared, caused the searching for a model that would describe in a simple form the whole of known particles. The Quark Model, based in the mathematical structures of group theory, provided in the beginning of the 60's a simplified description of hadronic matter already known, proposing that three particles, called quarks, would originate all the observed hadrons. This model was able to preview the existence of particles that were later detected, confirming its consistency. Extensions of the Quark Model were made in the beginning of the 70's, focusing in describing observed particles that were excited states of the fundamental particles and others that presented new quantum numbers (flavors). Recently, exotic states as tetraquarks and pentaquarks types, also called multiquarks systems, previewed by the model, were observed, what renewed the interest in the way as quarks are confined inside the hadrons. In this article we pre...

  3. Broken Valence Chiral Symmetry and Chiral Polarization of Dirac Spectrum in N$_f$=12 QCD at Small Quark Mass

    CERN Document Server

    Alexandru, Andrei

    2014-01-01

    The validity of recently proposed equivalence between valence spontaneous chiral symmetry breaking (vSChSB) and chiral polarization of low energy Dirac spectrum (ChP) in SU(3) gauge theory, is examined for the case of twelve mass-degenerate fundamental quark flavors. We find that the vSChSB-ChP correspondence holds for regularized systems studied. Moreover, our results suggest that vSChSB occurs in two qualitatively different circumstances: there is a quark mass $m_c$ such that for $m > m_c$ the mode condensing Dirac spectrum exhibits standard monotonically increasing density, while for $m_{ch} < m < m_c$ the peak around zero separates from the bulk of the spectrum, with density showing a pronounced depletion at intermediate scales. Valence chiral symmetry restoration may occur at yet smaller masses $m < m_{ch}$, but this has not yet been seen by overlap valence probe, leaving the $m_{ch}=0$ possibility open. The latter option could place massless N$_f$=12 theory outside of conformal window. Anomalou...

  4. Broken valence chiral symmetry and chiral polarization of Dirac spectrum in Nf=12 QCD at small quark mass

    2016-01-01

    The validity of recently proposed equivalence between valence spontaneous chiral symmetry breaking (vSChSB) and chiral polarization of low energy Dirac spectrum (ChP) in SU(3) gauge theory, is examined for the case of twelve mass-degenerate fundamental quark flavors. We find that the vSChSB-ChP correspondence holds for regularized systems studied. Moreover, our results suggest that vSChSB occurs in two qualitatively different circumstances: there is a quark mass mc such that for m > mc the mode condensing Dirac spectrum exhibits standard monotonically increasing density, while for mch < m < mc the peak around zero separates from the bulk of the spectrum, with density showing a pronounced depletion at intermediate scales. Valence chiral symmetry restoration may occur at yet smaller masses m < mch, but this has not yet been seen by overlap valence probe, leaving the mch = 0 possibility open. The latter option could place massless Nf=12 theory outside of conformal window. Anomalous behavior of overlap Dirac spectrum for mch < m < mc is qualitatively similar to one observed previously in zero and few-flavor theories as an effect of thermal agitation.

  5. Solutions of ward's modified chiral model

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We discuss the adaptation of Uhlenbeck's method of solving the chiral model in 2 Euclidean dimensions to Ward's modified chiral model in (2+1) dimensions. We show that the method reduces the problem of solving the second-order partial differential equations for the chiral field to solving a sequence of first-order partial differential equations for time dependent projector valued fields

    The classical van Royen-Weisskopf formula for the decay width of a meson into a lepton-antilepton pair is modified in order to include non-zero quark momentum contributions within the meson as well as relativistic effects. Besides, a phenomenological electromagnetic density for quarks is introduced. The meson wave functions are obtained from two different models: a chiral constituent quark model and a quark potential model including instanton effects.

    We present a systematic study of the phase structure of QCD in a generalized Ginzburg-Landau framework. We find, going up in density, a strongly interacting matter might go through the "pion crystal", an exotic inhomogeneous chiral phase before reaching the full restoration of symmetry.

  8. Chiral symmetry breaking, color superconductivity and quark matter phase diagram: a variational approach 12.38.Gc

    CERN Document Server

    Mishra, H

    2001-01-01

    We discuss in this note simultaneous existence of chiral symmetry breaking and color superconductivity at finite temperature and density in a Nambu-Jona-Lasinio type model. The methodology involves an explicit construction of a variational ground state and minimisation of the thermodynamic potential. There exist nontrivial solutions to the gap equations at finite densities with both quark-antiquark as well as diquark condensates for the 'ground' state. However, such a phase is thermodynamically unstable with the pressure being negative in this region. We also compute the equation of state, and obtain the structure of the phase diagram in the model.

  9. OZI violating eight-quark interactions as a thermometer for chiral transitions

    CERN Document Server

    Osipov, A A; Moreira, J; Blin, A H

    2008-01-01

    This work is a follow-up of our recent observation that in the SU(3) flavor limit with vanishing current quark masses the temperature for the chiral transition is substantially reduced by adding eight-quark interactions to the Nambu - Jona-Lasinio Lagrangian with U_A(1) breaking. Here we generalize the case to realistic light and strange quark masses and confirm our prior result. Additionally, we demonstrate that depending on the strength of OZI violating eight-quark interactions, the system undergoes either a rapid crossover or a first order phase transition. The meson mass spectra of the low lying pseudoscalars and scalars at T=0 are not sensitive to the difference in the parameter settings that correspond to these two alternatives, except for the singlet-octet mixing scalar channels, mainly the sigma meson.

    2015-01-01

    The sensitivity of Polyakov Nambu-Jona-Lasinio (PNJL) model as an effective theory of quark dynamics to chiral symmetry has been utilized in studying the QCD phase-diagram. Also, Poyakov linear sigma-model (PLSM), in which information about the confining glue sector of the theory was included through Polyakov-loop potential. Furthermore, from quasi-particle model (QPM), the gluonic sector of QPM is integrated to LSM in order to reproduce recent lattice calculations. We review PLSM, QLSM, PNJL and HRG with respect to their descriptions for the chiral phase-transition. We analyse chiral order-parameter M(T), normalized net-strange condensate Delta_{q,s}(T) and chiral phase-diagram and compare the results with lattice QCD. We conclude that PLSM works perfectly in reproducing M(T) and Delta_{q,s}(T). HRG model reproduces Delta_{q,s}(T), while PNJL and QLSM seem to fail. These differences are present in QCD chiral phase-diagram. PLSM chiral boundary is located in upper band of lattice QCD calculations and agree we...

  12. Chiral Cosmological Models: Dark Sector Fields Description

    CERN Document Server

    Chervon, S V

    2014-01-01

    The present review is devoted to a Chiral Cosmological Model as the self-gravitating nonlinear sigma model with the potential of (self)interactions employed in cosmology. The chiral cosmological model has successive applications in descriptions of the inflationary epoch of the Universe evolution; the present accelerated expansion of the Universe also can be described by the chiral fields multiplet as the dark energy in wide sense. To be more illustrative we are often addressed to the two-component chiral cosmological model. Namely, the two-component chiral cosmological model describing the phantom field with interaction to a canonical scalar field is analyzed in details. New generalized model of quintom character is proposed and exact solutions are founded out. In the review we represented the perturbation theory for chiral cosmological model with the aim to describe the structure formation using the progress achieved in the inflation theory. It was shown that cosmological perturbations from chiral fields can...

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We study the structure of the spin of the proton and the Λ hyperon in an unquenched quark model which incorporates the effects of quark-antiquark pair creation via a microscopic, QCD-inspired, quark-antiquark creation mechanism. It is shown that the inclusion of the qq-bar pairs leads to a sizeable contribution of the orbital angular momentum to the spin of the proton and the Λ hyperon.

    We study the two-flavor Nambu--Jona-Lasinio model with the Polyakov loop (PNJL model) in the presence of a strong magnetic field and a chiral chemical potential $\\mu_5$ which mimics the effect of imbalanced chirality due to QCD instanton and/or sphaleron transitions. Firstly we focus on the properties of chiral symmetry breaking and deconfinement crossover under the strong magnetic field. Then we discuss the role of $\\mu_5$ on the phase structure. Finally the chirality charge, electric current, and their susceptibility, which are relevant to the Chiral Magnetic Effect, are computed in the model.

    Short-range quark-quark correlations are introduced into the quark-meson coupling (QMC) model phenomenologically. We study the effect of the correlations on the structure of the nucleon in dense nuclear matter. With the addition of correlations, the saturation curve for symmetric nuclear matter is much improved at high density.

  17. Dynamical evolution of the chiral magnetic effect: applications to the quark-gluon plasma

    CERN Document Server

    Manuel, Cristina

    2015-01-01

    We study the dynamical evolution of the so-called chiral magnetic effect in an electromagnetic conductor. To this end, we consider the coupled set of corresponding Maxwell and chiral anomaly equations, and we prove that these can be derived from chiral kinetic theory. After integrating the chiral anomaly equation over space in a closed volume, it leads to a quantum conservation law of the total helicity of the system. A change in the magnetic helicity density comes together with a modification of the chiral fermion density. We study in Fourier space the coupled set of anomalous equations and we obtain the dynamical evolution of the magnetic fields, magnetic helicity density, and chiral fermion imbalance. Depending on the initial conditions we observe how the helicity might be transferred from the fermions to the magnetic fields, or vice versa, and find that the rate of this transfer also depends on the scale of wavelengths of the gauge fields in consideration. We then focus our attention on the quark-gluon pl...

  18. Unlocking the Standard Model. I. 1 generation of quarks. Symmetries

    CERN Document Server

    Machet, Bruno

    2012-01-01

    A very specific two-Higgs-doublet extension of the Glashow-Salam-Weinberg model for one generation of quarks is advocated for, in which the two doublets are parity transformed of each other and both isomorphic to the Higgs doublet of the Standard Model. The chiral group U(2)_L X U(2)_R gets broken down to U(1) X U(1)_{em}. In there, the first diagonal U(1) is directly connected to parity through the U(1)_LX U(1)_R algebra. Both chiral and weak symmetry breaking can be accounted for, together with their relevant degrees of freedom. The two Higgs doublets are demonstrated to be in one-to-one correspondence with bilinear quark operators.

  19. Actuality of the quark model

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    After a short reminder of the historical role of the quark model as an ancestor of QCD we discuss some of its old and recent achievements and its limitations. We first outline the rather successful description of electroweak hadronic matrix elements, and of strong decays. We also discuss its theoretical weaknesses (non relativistic hypothesis, difficulty to describe Goldstone bosons ...). We stress that in some fields it remains the only phenomelogical tool: High order hadronic phenomena, process involving excited hadrons, etc. Finally we exhibit cases in which the successes of the quark model can be understood by more rigorous proofs of the same results.

    2016-01-01

    We calculate the equation of state of strange quark matter and the interior structure of strange quark stars in a Dyson-Schwinger quark model within rainbow or Ball-Chiu vertex approximation. We emphasize constraints on the parameter space of the model due to stability conditions of ordinary nuclear matter. Respecting these constraints, we find that the maximum mass of strange quark stars is about 1.9 solar masses, and typical radii are 9--11 km. We obtain an energy release as large as $3.6 \\times 10^{53}\\,\\text{erg}$ from conversion of neutron stars into strange quark stars.

  1. Color confinement, quark pair creation and dynamical chiral-symmetry breaking in the dual Ginzburg-Landau theory

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We study the color confinement, the qq pair creation and the dynamical chiral-symmetry breaking of nonperturbative QCD by using the dual Ginzburg-Landau theory, where the dual Higgs mechanism plays an essential role in the nonperturbative dynamics in the infrared region. As a result of the dual Meissner effect, the linear static quark potential, which characterizes the quark confinement, is obtained in the long distance within the quenched approximation. We obtain a simple expression for the string tension similar to the energy per unit length of a vortex in the superconductivity physics. The dynamical effect of light quarks on the quark confining potential is investigated in terms of the infrared screening effect due to the qq pair creation or the cut of the hadronic string. The screening length of the potential is estimated by using the Schwinger formula for the qq pair creation. We introduce the corresponding infrared cutoff to the strong long-range correlation factor in the gluon propagator as a dynamical effect of light quarks, and obtain a compact formula for the quark potential including the screening effect in the infrared region. We investigate the dynamical chiral-symmetry breaking by using the Schwinger-Dyson equation in the dual Ginzburg-Landau theory, where the gluon propagator includes the nonperturbative effect related to the color confinement. We find a large enhancement of the chiral-symmetry breaking by the dual Higgs mechanism, which supports the close relation between the color confinement and the chiral-symmetry breaking. The dynamical quark mass, the pion decay constant and the quark condensate are well reproduced by using the consistent values of the gauge coupling constant and the QCD scale parameter with the perturbative QCD and the quark confining potential. The light-quark confinement is also roughly examined in terms of the disappearance of physical poles in the light-quark propagator by using the smooth extrapolation of the quark mass

  2. Exact heavy to light meson form factors in the combined heavy quark, large Nc and chiral limits

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We demonstrate that the form factors of local operators between a heavy meson state (like the B) and a light pseudoscalar state (like the pion) are given exactly by a single pole form in the combined heavy quark, large Nc (number of colors) and chiral limits. We discuss the deviations from this exact result from finite heavy quark masses, non-zero light quark masses and finite Nc. We comment on some of the numerous implications of this result

    The effects of “quark sea” in determining the flavor structure of the octet baryons have been investigated in the chiral constituent quark model. The chiral constituent quark model is able to qualitatively generate the requisite amount of quark sea and is also known to provide a satisfactory explanation of the proton spin and related issues in the nonperturbative regime. The phenomenological implications of the quark sea asymmetries in the nucleon have been investigated to understand the impo...

  4. A chiral random matrix model with 2+1 flavors at finite temperature and density

    2009-01-01

    Phase diagram of a chiral random matrix model with the degenerate ud quarks and the s quark at finite temperature and density is presented. The model exhibits a first-order transition at finite temperature for three massless flavors, owing to the U_A(1) breaking determinant term. We study the order of the transition with changing the quark masses and the quark chemical potential, and show that the first-order transition region expands as the chemical potential increases. We also discuss the behavior of the meson masses and the susceptibilities near the critical point.

  5. Top quark mass bounds in the hierarchical chiral symmetry-breaking framework

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    By taking account of recent information on the Bd - antiBd mixing parameter, xd, and the product BB f2B, as well as uncertainties in the lighter quark masses, we are able to set search limits on the top quark mass of 84 ± 8 GeV for the Fritzsch mass matrices with two Higgs doublets or 78 ± 12 GeV for a modified set of Fritzsch mass matrices with minimal Higgs structure. We comment on the discovery complications involved when the top mass is very close to the W mass. If no top quark is eventually found with mass less than 100 - 110 GeV, the whole 3-family hierarchical chiral symmetry-breaking framework proposed by Fritzsch is ruled out

  6. Chiral sine-Gordon model

    2016-02-01

    We investigate the chiral sine-Gordon model using the renormalization group method. The chiral sine-Gordon model is a model for G-valued fields and describes a new class of phase transitions, where G is a compact Lie group. We show that the model is renormalizable by means of a perturbation expansion and we derive beta functions of the renormalization group theory. The coefficients of beta functions are represented by the Casimir invariants. The model contains both asymptotically free and ultraviolet strong-coupling regions. The beta functions have a zero which is a bifurcation point that divides the parameter space into two regions; they are the weak-coupling region and the strong-coupling region. A large-N model is also considered. This model is reduced to the conventional sine-Gordon model that describes the Kosterlitz-Thouless transition near the fixed point. In the strong-coupling limit, the model is reduced to a U(N) matrix model.

    Chiral spin fraction models agree with the proton spin data only when the chiral quark-Goldstone boson couplings are pure spinflip. For axial-vector coupling from soft-pion physics this is true for massless quarks but not for constituent quarks.

  10. Chiral Magnetic Wave at Finite Baryon Density and the Electric Quadrupole Moment of the Quark-Gluon Plasma

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The chiral magnetic wave is a gapless collective excitation of quark-gluon plasma in the presence of an external magnetic field that stems from the interplay of chiral magnetic and chiral separation effects; it is composed of the waves of the electric and chiral charge densities coupled by the axial anomaly. We consider a chiral magnetic wave at finite baryon density and find that it induces the electric quadrupole moment of the quark-gluon plasma produced in heavy ion collisions: the 'poles' of the produced fireball (pointing outside of the reaction plane) acquire additional positive electric charge, and the 'equator' acquires additional negative charge. We point out that this electric quadrupole deformation lifts the degeneracy between the elliptic flows of positive and negative pions leading to v2(π+)2(π-), and estimate the magnitude of the effect.

Within this approach we explore the chemical potential dependenceof the dressed-quark propagator, which provides a means of determining the behavior of the chiral and deconfinementorder parameters. A comparison with the results of previous researches is given.

    We present a general approach to incorporate hadronic as well as quark degrees of freedom in a unified approach. This approach implements the correct degrees of freedom at high as well as low temperatures and densities. An effective Polyakov loop field serves as the order parameter for deconfinement. We employ a well-tested hadronic flavor-SU(3) model based on a chirally symmetric formulation that reproduces properties of ground state nuclear matter and yields good descriptions of nuclei and hypernuclei. Excluded volume effects simulating the finite size of the hadrons drive the transition to quarks at high temperatures and densities. We study the phase structure of the model and the transition to the quark gluon plasma and compare results to lattice gauge calculations.

  17. Brazovskii-Dyugaev effect on the inhomogeneous chiral transition in quark matter

    Science.gov (United States)

    Karasawa, Shintaro; Lee, Tong-Gyu; Tatsumi, Toshitaka

    2016-04-01

    We investigate the effects of quantum and thermal fluctuations on the phase boundary between the inhomogeneous chiral phase and the chiral-restored phase in the phase diagram in the plane of temperature and chemical potential. Introducing the composite fields made of quark bilinear fields, we construct an effective action for them in quark matter by way of the correlation function method. Utilizing this effective action, we discuss the effects of the quark-antiquark and particle-hole pair fluctuations to find possible modifications of the vertex functions of the order parameter included in the thermodynamic potential. We find that the most important effect of the pair fluctuations is to change the sign of the fourth-order vertex function to make the phase transition always the first, rather than the second, order (we call it the Brazovskii-Dyugaev effect). Another important effect manifests in the second-order vertex function: it exhibits a singular behavior near the critical point, which prohibits the second-order phase transition. It, together with the fourth-order vertex function, alters the location of the phase boundary.

When a magnetic field is applied to a system with nonzero chirality an electromagnetic current is induced along the magnetic field. This phenomenon is called the chiral magnetic effect.

  20. Classifying the Phases of Gauge Theories by Spectral Density of Probing Chiral Quarks

    Alexandru, Andrei

    2015-01-01

    We describe our recent proposal that distinct phases of gauge theories with fundamental quarks translate into specific types of low-energy behavior in Dirac spectral density. The resulting scenario is built around new evidence substantiating the existence of a phase characterized by bimodal (anomalous) density, and corresponding to deconfined dynamics with broken valence chiral symmetry. We argue that such anomalous phase occurs quite generically in these theories, including in "real world" QCD above the crossover temperature, and in zero-temperature systems with many light flavors.

  1. From QCD to a dynamical quark model: construction and some meson spectroscopy

    CERN Document Server

    Dudal, D; Palhares, L F; Sorella, S P

    2013-01-01

    We introduce an effective quark model that is in principle dynamically derivable from the QCD action. An important feature is the incorporation of spontaneous chiral symmetry breaking in a renormalizable fashion. The quark propagator in the condensed vacuum exhibits complex conjugate poles, indicative of an unphysical spectral form, i.e. confined quarks. Moreover, the ensuing mass function can be fitted well to existing lattice data. To validate the physical nature of the new model, we identify not only a massless pseudoscalar (i.e. a pion) in the chiral limit, but we also present reasonable estimates for the rho meson mass and decay constant, employing a contact point interaction and a large N argument to simplify the diagrammatic spectral analysis. We stress that we do not use any experimental input to obtain our numbers, but only rely on our model and lattice quark data.

    The authors extended the MAC principle to the case for semisimple metacolor gauge group and constructed an SO(10) x SU(4) chiral preon model which satisfies the complementarity principle. This model had a unique solution and thus predicted 4 generations of quarks and leptons without exotics. The generation gauge group was intruduced and the breaking of mass degeneracy among different generations was investigated

    The Polyakov loop and the Dirac modes are connected via a simple analytical relation on the temporally odd-number lattice, where the temporal lattice size is odd with the normal (nontwisted) periodic boundary condition. Using this relation, we investigate the relation between quark confinement and chiral symmetry breaking in QCD. In this paper, we discuss the properties of this analytical relation and numerically investigate each Dirac-mode contribution to the Polyakov loop in both confinement and deconfinement phases at the quenched level. This relation indicates that low-lying Dirac modes have little contribution to the Polyakov loop, and we numerically confirmed this fact. From our analysis, it is suggested that there is no direct one-to-one corresponding between quark confinement and chiral symmetry breaking in QCD. Also, in the confinement phase, we numerically find that there is a new “positive/negative symmetry” in the Dirac-mode matrix elements of link-variable operator which appear in the relation and the Polyakov loop becomes zero because of this symmetry. In the deconfinement phase, this symmetry is broken and the Polyakov loop is non-zero.

    The Polyakov loop and the Dirac modes are connected via a simple analytical relation on the temporally odd-number lattice, where the temporal lattice size is odd with the normal (nontwisted) periodic boundary condition. Using this relation, we investigate the relation between quark confinement and chiral symmetry breaking in QCD. In this paper, we discuss the properties of this analytical relation and numerically investigate each Dirac-mode contribution to the Polyakov loop in both confinement and deconfinement phases at the quenched level. This relation indicates that low-lying Dirac modes have little contribution to the Polyakov loop, and we numerically confirmed this fact. From our analysis, it is suggested that there is no direct one-to-one corresponding between quark confinement and chiral symmetry breaking in QCD. Also, in the confinement phase, we numerically find that there is a new "positive/negative symmetry" in the Dirac-mode matrix elements of link-variable operator which appear in the relation and the Polyakov loop becomes zero because of this symmetry. In the deconfinement phase, this symmetry is broken and the Polyakov loop is non-zero.

  7. Quark models of hadronic interactions

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The soliton model represents an extension of the MIT bag model to allow for the dynamical degrees of freedom associated with the confinement mechanism. The soliton model has 5 parameters, MIT has 3, but the soliton model has the flexibility, by choice of the parameters, to reproduce either the MIT or the SLAC bags. With appropriate choice of parameters and inclusion of one gluon exchange, the resulting hadronic spectra is similar to the MIT model. Because the model can be cast in Hamiltonian form, dynamical processes can be calculated using techniques developed for nuclear collective motion. This permits calculation of N-N collisions, recoil corrections and the construction of bag states of good momentum. The last is essential for the proper calculation of electromagnetic form factors. In this paper, the pion has been alluded to frequently. It is currently being studied actively in the context of the soliton model. The pion appears here as an anomalously light particle, split off and pushed down from the meson multiplet by OGE. The nucleon bag should be soft to qq, virtual excitation with pion quantum numbers. In the soliton model, these virtual excitations are to be identified with the pion cloud. One can also calculate pi-nucleon coupling and the weak decay of the pion, π → μ + anti nu/sub μ/. Indeed, bags can be created and destroyed in the model. This description of pion physics begins with a Lagrangian which does not respect chiral invariance and seeks to achieve PCAC from dynamics. The more fashionable approach is to begin with a chirally invariant Lagrangian from which the pion emerges as a massless Goldstone boson; somewhere, the pion must be given a mass and CAC broken. In all models, effective fields (sigma or π or both) are introduced to describe degrees of freedom which are too difficult to handle explicitly. 20 references

    Using an anomalous transport model for massless quarks, we study the effect of magnetic field on the elliptic flows of quarks and antiquarks in relativistic heavy ion collisions. With initial conditions from a blast wave model and assuming that the strong magnetic field produced in non-central heavy ion collisions can last for a sufficiently long time, we obtain an appreciable electric quadrupole moment in the transverse plane of a heavy ion collision, which subsequently leads to a splitting between the elliptic flows of quarks and antiquarks as expected from the chiral magnetic wave formed in the produced QGP and observed in experiments at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC).

  9. Baryon resonances without quarks: A chiral soliton perspective

    1987-03-01

    In many processes involving low momentum transfer it is fruitful to regard the nucleon as a soliton or ''monopole-like'' configuration of the pion field. In particular, within this framework it is possible to obtain detailed predictions for pion-nucleon scattering amplitudes and for properties of baryon resonances. One can also derive model-independent linear relations between scattering amplitudes, such as ..pi..N and anti KN. A short survey of some recent results is given, including comparison with experimental data.

  10. Towards a realistic composite model of quarks and leptons

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Within the context of the 't Hooft anomaly matching scheme, some guiding principles for the model building are discussed with an eye to low energy phenomenology. It is argued that Λsub(ch) (chiral symmetry breaking scale of the global color-flavor group Gsub(CF)) proportional Λsub(MC) (metacolor scale) and Λ sub(gsub(CF)) (unification scale of the gauge subgroup of Gsub(CF)) < or approx. Λsub(ch). As illustrations of the method, two composite models are suggested that can give rise to three or four generations of ordinary quarks and leptons without exotic fermions. (orig.)

    Until now it is not possible to determine the equation of state (EOS) of hadronic matter from QCD. One successfully applied alternative way to describe the hadronic world at high densities and temperatures are effective models like the RMF-models, where the relevant degrees of freedom are baryons and mesons instead of quarks and gluons. Since approximate chiral symmetry is an essential feature of QCD, it should be a useful concept for building and restricting effective models. It has been shown that effective {sigma}-{omega}-models including SU(2) chiral symmetry are able to obtain a reasonable description of nuclear matter and finite nuclei. Recently [4] the authors have shown that an extended SU(3) x SU(3) chiral {sigma}-{omega} model is able to describe nuclear matter ground state properties, vacuum properties and finite nuclei satisfactorily. This model includes the lowest SU(3) multiplets of the baryons (octet and decuplet), the spin-0 and the spin-1 mesons as the relevant degrees of freedom. Here they discuss the predictions of this model for dense, hot, and strange hadronic matter.

Then we analyze the allowed regions which simultaneously satisfy the FCNCs for the quark sector, LFVs including $\\mu-e$ conversion, the quark mass and mixing, and the lepton mass and mixing. Also we estimate the typical value for the $(g-2)_\\mu$ in our model.

    We are computing the modifications for the scalar and pseudoscalar meson masses and mixing angles due to the proper accounting of fermionic vacuum fluctuation in the framework of generalized 2+1 flavor quark-meson model and Polyakov loop augmented Quark Meson model (PQM). The renormalized contribution of the divergent fermionic vacuum fluctuation at one loop level, makes these models effective quantum chromodynamics (QCD)-like models. It has been explicitly shown that analytical expressions for the model parameters, meson masses and mixing angles, do not depend on any arbitrary renormalization scale. We have investigated how the incorporation of fermionic vacuum fluctuation in quark meson and PQM models qualitatively and quantitatively affects the convergence in the masses of the chiral partners in pseudoscalar ($\\pi$, $\\eta$, $\\eta'$, $K$) and scalar ($\\sigma$, $a_0$, $f_0$,$\\kappa$) meson nonets as the temperature is varied on the reduced temperature scale.

    2016-01-01

    We discuss an extension of the instanton-dyon liquid model that includes twisted light quarks in the fundamental representation with explicit $Z_{N_c}$ symmetry for the case with equal number of colors $N_c$ and flavors $N_f$. We map the model on a 3-dimensional quantum effective theory, and analyze it in the mean-field approximation. The effective potential and the vacuum chiral condensates are made explicit for $N_f=N_c=2, 3$. The low temperature phase is center symmetric but breaks spontaneously flavor symmetry with $N_f-1$ massless pions. The high temperature phase breaks center symmetry but supports finite and unequal quark condensates.

    The quark delocalization colour screening model provides an alternative approach for the NN intermediate range attraction, which is attributed to the σ meson exchange in the meson exchange and chiral quark model.However the quark delocalization induces the spurious centre-of-mass motion (CMM). A method for subtracting the spurious CMM proposed before is applied to the new scattering calculation. The subtraction of the spurious CMM results in an additional NN attraction. The NN scattering data are refitted by a fine tune of the colour screening constant.

  1. A Polytropic Model of Quark Stars

    CERN Document Server

    Lai, X Y

    2008-01-01

    A polytropic quark star model was suggested in order to establish a general framework in which theoretical quark star models could be tested by observations. The key difference between polytropic quark and normal stars is related to the surface density, which is nonzero for the former but is zero for the latter. A quark star with self-confinement could then be very low massive, and be still gravitationally stable even if the polytropic index is greater than 3. The gravitational effect could be significant if quark star's mass is $\\gtrsim 0.01M_\\odot$, and substantial strain energy would then develop in a solid quark star during its accretion phase. The energy released during a star-quake could be as high as $\\sim 10^{48}$ ergs if the tangential pressure is $\\sim 10^{-4}$ higher than the radial one.

  2. Thermo-magnetic effects in quark matter: Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model constrained by lattice QCD

    2016-01-01

    The phenomenon of inverse magnetic catalysis of chiral symmetry in QCD predicted by lattice simulations can be reproduced within the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model if the coupling G of the model decreases with the strength B of the magnetic field and temperature T. The thermo-magnetic dependence of G(B,T) is obtained by fitting recent lattice QCD predictions for the chiral transition order parameter. Different thermodynamic quantities of magnetized quark matter evaluated with a G(B, T) are compared with the ones obtained at constant coupling G. The model with a G(B,T) predicts a more dramatic chiral transition as the field intensity increases. In addition, the pressure and magnetization always increase with B for a given temperature. Being parametrized by four magnetic field dependent coefficients and having a rather simple exponential thermal dependence our accurate ansatz for the running coupling can be easily implemented to improve typical model applications to magnetized quark matter.

In order to obtain finite results, we assume a dipole form factor for the nucleon-quark-diquark coupling, instead of a point-like coupling. The results are compared with the time-reversal-odd ...

    We study aspects of the pion condensation in a two-flavor neutral quark matter using the Nambu--Jona-Lasinio (NJL) model of QCD at finite density. We investigate the role of electric charge neutrality, and explicit symmetry breaking via quark mass, both of which control the onset of the charged pion $(\\pi^c)$ condensation. We show that the equality between the electric chemical potential and the in-medium pion mass, $\\mu_{e}=M_{\\pi^-}$, as a threshold, persists even for composite pion system in the medium, provided the transition to the pion condensed phase is of the second order. Moreover we find that the pion condensate in the neutral quark matter is extremely fragile to the symmetry breaking effect via a current quark mass $m$, being ruled out for $m$ larger than the order of 10 keV.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The classical van Royen-Weisskopf formula for the decay width of a meson into a lepton-antilepton pair is modified in order to include nonzero quark momentum contributions within the meson as well as relativistic effects. Besides, a phenomenological electromagnetic density for quarks is introduced. The meson wave functions are obtained from two different models: a chiral constituent quark model and a quark potential model including instanton effects. The modified van Royen-Weisskopf formula is found to improve systematically the results for the widths, giving an overall good description of all known decays

    Lattice QCD is a very computer time demanding scientific application. Only with the computer time made available on supercomputers like SuperMUC significant progress, like the one reported here, can be reached. We are continuing to evaluate the data produced in this project with the focus on topological properties of QCD. Here we confront the computation of pseudo-scalar flavour singlet meson masses in 2+1+1 flavour QCD with the topological susceptibility in the so-called quenched approximation. The connection is provided by the famous Witten-Veneziano formula, which we are going to check non-perturbatively. Moreover, the computing resources made available by LRZ are used to reduce the systematic uncertainties in our results even further: in another project we are generating ensembles with physical values of the quark masses, such that a chiral extrapolation is not needed anymore.

    In this paper we investigate the phase structure of a (1+1)-dimensional schematic quark model with four-quark interaction and in the presence of baryon ($\\mu_B$), isospin ($\\mu_I$) and chiral isospin ($\\mu_{I5}$) chemical potentials. It is established that in the large-$N_c$ limit ($N_c$ is the number of colored quarks) there exists a duality correspondence between the chiral symmetry breaking phase and the charged pion condensation (PC) one. The role and influence of this property on the phase structure of the model are studied. Moreover, it is shown that the chemical potential $\\mu_{I5}$ promotes the appearance of the charged PC phase with nonzero baryon density.

  10. Chiral phase transition in the soft-wall model of AdS/QCD

    Chelabi, Kaddour; Fang, Zhen; Huang, Mei; Li, Danning; Wu, Yue-Liang

    2016-04-01

    We investigate the chiral phase transition in the soft-wall model of AdS/QCD at zero chemical potential for two-flavor and three-flavor cases, respectively. We show that there is no spontaneous chiral symmetry breaking in the original soft-wall model. After detailed analysis, we find that in order to realize chiral symmetry breaking and restoration, both profiles for the scalar potential and the dilaton field are essential. The scalar potential determines the possible solution structure of the chiral condensate, except the mass term, it takes another quartic term for the two-flavor case, and for the three-flavor case, one has to take into account an extra cubic term due to the t'Hooft determinant interaction. The profile of the dilaton field reflects the gluodynamics, which is negative at a certain ultraviolet scale and approaches positive quadratic behavior at far infrared region. With this set-up, the spontaneous chiral symmetry breaking in the vacuum and its restoration at finite temperature can be realized perfectly. In the two-flavor case, it gives a second order chiral phase transition in the chiral limit, while the transition turns to be a crossover for any finite quark mass. In the case of three-flavor, the phase transition becomes a first order one in the chiral limit, while above sufficient large quark mass it turns to be a crossover again. This scenario agrees exactly with the current understanding on chiral phase transition from lattice QCD and other effective model studies.

  11. Phenomenology of quark-lepton symmetric models

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Quark-lepton symmetric models are a new class of gauge theories which unify the quarks and leptons. In these models the gauge group of the standard model is extended to include a color group for the leptons, and consequently the quarks and leptons can then be related by a Z2 discrete quark-lepton symmetry. Phenomenological implications of these theories are explored. Two varieties are analysed: one being the simplest quark-lepton symmetric model, and the other containing conventional left-right symmetry. Each theory has a Z' boson, whose masses are constrained at 90% C.L. to be greater than 700 GeV and 650 GeV respectively. Phenomenological constraints from rare decays and the implications of the extended fermion spectrum are also examined. 37 refs., 2 tabs

    The standard model describing elementary particle structure and interactions is reviewed. Starting with a discussion of the history of developments leading to the standard model some phenomenological models used to treat strong-interaction problems not solvable in a perturbative QCD and possible generalizations of the standard model are mentioned. The properties of quarks (quantum numbers, masses and interactions) determined or predicted are given. The following models for bound state problems are discussed: additive quark model, potential models, quark cluster models, Bag models, glueballs and lattice gauge theory as well as the problem of obtaining the interaction between two nucleons from the interaction between quarks being a fundamental question of nuclear physics. The static properties of hadrons such as their masses and magnetic moments are considered. Hadron decay rates and structure, emphasizing nucleon structure, are treated

    2010-01-01

    Making use of the recently developed chiral power counting for the physics of nuclear matter [1,2], we evaluate the in-medium chiral quark condensate up to next-to-leading order for both symmetric nuclear matter and neutron matter. Our calculation includes the full in-medium iteration of the leading order local and one-pion exchange nucleon-nucleon interactions. Interestingly, we find a cancellation between the contributions stemming from the quark mass dependence of the nucleon mass appearing in the in-medium nucleon-nucleon interactions. Only the contributions originating from the explicit quark mass dependence of the pion mass survive. This cancellation is the reason of previous observations concerning the dominant role of the long-range pion contributions and the suppression of short-range nucleon-nucleon interactions. We find that the linear density contribution to the in-medium chiral quark condensate is only slightly modified for pure neutron matter by the nucleon-nucleon interactions. For symmetric nu...

  15. Chiral models of low energy QCD

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Two processes may be distinguished when a hadron propagates in a dense baryonic medium. The polarization of the medium and the change in the quark structure of the hadron. The polarization of the medium is better described in terms of colorless mesons and nucleons while the intrinsic change of the hadron is better described by quark models. It is shown how to couple the two processes. The scaling of effective Lagrangians, is related to changes in the quark constituent masses, based on the QCD scale anomaly. (author) 62 refs

    Mishra, Hiranmaya

    2016-01-01

    We study the existence of Z(3) metastable states in the presence of the dynamical quarks within the ambit of Polyakov quark meson (PQM) model. Within the parameters of the model, it is seen that for temperatures $T_m$ greater than the chiral transition temperature $T_c$, Z(3) metastable states exist ( $T_{m} \\sim 310$ MeV at zero chemical potential). At finite chemical potential $T_m$ is larger than the same at vanishing chemical potential. We also observe a shift of ($\\sim 5^\\circ$) in the phase of the metastable vacua at zero chemical potential. The energy density difference between true and Z(3) metastable vacua is very large in this model. This indicates a strong explicit symmetry breaking effect due to quarks in PQM model. We compare this explicit symmetry breaking in PQM model with small explicit symmetry breaking as a linear term in Polyakov loop added to the Polyakov loop potential. We also study about the possibility of domain growth in a quenched transition to QGP in relativistic heavy ion collision...

  17. Softening of the equation of state of matter at large densities and temperatures: chiral symmetry restoration vs. quark deconfinement

    CERN Document Server

    Bonanno, Luca; Lavagno, Andrea

    2007-01-01

    We discuss two models for describing the behavior of matter at large densities and intermediate temperatures. In both models a softening of the equation of state takes place due to the appearance of new degrees of freedom. The first is an hadronic model in which the softening is due to chiral symmetry restoration. In the second model the softening is associated with the formation of clusters of quarks in the mixed phase. We show that both models allow a significant softening but, in the first case the bulk modulus is mainly dependent on the density, while in the mixed phase model it also strongly depends on the temperature. We also show that the bulk modulus is not vanishing in the mixed phase due to the presence of two conserved charges, the baryon and the isospin one. Only in a small region of densities and temperatures the incompressibility becomes extremely small. Finally we compare our results with recent analysis of heavy ion collisions at intermediate energies.

    We present an analysis of the dynamics of two-flavour QCD in the vacuum. Special attention is payed to the transition from the high energy quark-gluon regime to the low energy regime governed by hadron dynamics. This is done within a functional renormalisation group approach to QCD amended by dynamical hadronisation techniques. The latter allow us to describe conveniently the transition from the perturbative high-energy regime to the nonperturbative low-energy limit without suffering from a fine-tuning of model parameters. In the present work, we apply these techniques to two-flavour QCD with physical quark masses and show how the dynamics of the dominant low-energy degrees of freedom emerge from the underlying quark-gluon dynamics.

    We study the spatial inhomogeneity of the Polyakov loop induced by inhomogeneous chiral condensates. We formulate an effective model of gluons on the background fields of chiral condensates, and perform its lattice simulation. On the background of inhomogeneous chiral condensates, the Polyakov loop exhibits an in-phase spatial oscillation with the chiral condensates. We also analyze the heavy quark potential and show that the inhomogeneous Polyakov loop indicates the inhomogeneous confinement of heavy quarks.

    A one parameter generalization of Ward's chiral model in 2+1 dimensions is given. Like the original model the present one is integrable and possesses a positive-definite and conserved energy and $y$-momentum. The details of the scattering depend on the value of the parameter of the generalisation.

  8. Mesons in relativistic quark model

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In the relativistic quark model formulated in the infinite momentum frame a self-consistent description has been obtained for a pion, ω- and ρ-mesons, K- and K*-mesons. The role of the relativistic effects in the description of radiative, leptonic and semileptonic decays of heavy quarkonia is studied. The relativistic effects are shown to lead to noticeable suppression of the ψ → ηcγ decay width predicted in nonrelativistic approximation; however the discrepancy with the experimental data still remains. Predictions are obtained for amplitudes of D → μν, Ds → μν, B → μν, D → πeν and D → Keν decays. The relativistic effects are shown to lead to strong supperssion of coupling constants of D → μν, Ds → μν, B → μν decays. The prediction obtained for the coupling constant FD = 230-270 MeV is close to the boundary of available experimental restriction. 46 refs.; 2 figs.; 5 tabs

  9. Form factors, medium effects and vector mesons in the projected chiral soliton model

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The main goal of the present work has been the evaluation of baryonic form factors by means of the projected chiralquark-meson soliton model and various generalizations of it. In first place we have studied the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model in the Hartree approximation for classical non-strange scalar and pseudoscalar couplings in the vacuum sector. In doing so, we have first bosonized the Lagrangian and applied three regularization schemes in order to render the theory finite. We have found that at least two physical quantities as the quark mass and the quark condensate are very sensitive to the actual scheme used. The procedures which allow to reproduce best the experimental values are both sharp cut-off methods. We have also shown that the chiral soliton model with explicit valence quarks can be considered as an approximation to the Hartree solution of the Nambu-Jona-lasinio model for quarks. In the framework of the linear chiral sigma model with quarks, sigma-, and pi-mesons we have discussed several nucleon form factors such as electromagnetic, axial and that for the pion-nucleon interaction.

    The validity of recently proposed equivalence between valence spontaneous chiral symmetry breaking (vSChSB) and chiral polarization of low energy Dirac spectrum (ChP) in SU(3) gauge theory, is examined for the case of twelve mass–degenerate fundamental quark flavors. We find that the vSChSB–ChP correspondence holds for regularized systems studied. Moreover, our results suggest that vSChSB occurs in two qualitatively different circumstances: there is a quark mass m{sub c} such that for m > m{sub c} the mode condensing Dirac spectrum exhibits standard monotonically increasing density, while for m{sub ch} < m < m{sub c} the peak around zero separates from the bulk of the spectrum, with density showing a pronounced depletion at intermediate scales. Valence chiral symmetry restoration may occur at yet smaller masses m < m{sub ch}, but this has not yet been seen by overlap valence probe, leaving the m{sub ch} = 0 possibility open. The latter option could place massless N{sub f}=12 theory outside of conformal window. Anomalous behavior of overlap Dirac spectrum for m{sub ch} < m < m{sub c} is qualitatively similar to one observed previously in zero and few–flavor theories as an effect of thermal agitation.

  13. Studies on phenomenological hadron models with chiral symmetry

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In this report we consider, in the context of phenomenological models for hadrons, several aspects of Skyrme-type and hybrid bag models. In the first of the two central parts we discuss two qualitatively different generalizations of the minimal SU(2) Skyrme model. One of these consists in adding to the Lagrangian density a symmetric term of fourth order in the field derivatives. Its consequences are determined for solutions and observables by analytical and numerical investigations. In the other we propose a contribution for explicit isospin symmetry breaking in the mesonic as well as the baryonic sector. Together with the standard nonlinear σ-model term it allows for exact time-dependent classical soliton solutions. Their quantization leads to a quantitative connection between the hadronic isospin mass differenced of pions and nucleons. The second main part of this report is devoted to the generalization of SU(2) bag models under the aspect of chiral symmetry. We first show that the construction of appropriate surface terms in the Lagrangian density necessitates the introduction of dynamical bosonic degrees of freedom. This allows for a variety of bag scenarios (including the 'endopionic' bag). We then consider explicit isospin symmetry breaking for hybrid bag models with a nonlinear mesonic sector. An intimate relationship is revealed between the effects of a quark mass difference and the time-dependent bosonic solutions found for the purely mesonic case. It is reflected in a nontrivial interdependence between quark and meson masses, bag radius and chiral angle. We provide an especially extensive list of references for the topics discussed in this report. (orig.)

  14. A Constituent Quark-Meson Model for Heavy Meson Decays

    CERN Document Server

    Deandrea, Aldo

    1998-01-01

    I describe a model for heavy meson decays based on an effective quark-meson lagrangian. I consider the heavy mesons S with spin and parity J^P=(1+,0+), H with J^P=(1-,0-) and T^mu with J^P=(2+,1+), i.e. S and P wave heavy-light mesons. The model is constrained by the known symmetries of QCD in the mQ -> infinity limit for the heavy quarks, and chiral symmetry in the light quark sector. Using a very limited number of free parameters it is possible to compute several phenomenological quantities, e.g. the leptonic B and B** decay constants; the three universal Isgur-Wise form factors: xi, tau(3/2), tau(1/2), describing the semi-leptonic decays B -> D(*) l nu, B -> D** l nu; the strong and radiative D* decays; the weak semi-leptonic decays of B and D into light mesons: pi, rho, a1. An overall agreement with data, when available, is achieved.

  15. Chiral symmetry in the strong color-electric field in terms of Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We examine the behavior of chiral symmetry in an external gluon field using Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model, which is an effective theory of QCD. The Dyson equation for the dynamical quark mass in the presence of the external color-electric field is obtained. By solving it in the color flux tube inside mesons, chiral symmetry would be restored in the flux tube of mesons and this result supports Chiral Bag picture for mesons. Next we consider the flux tubes formed in the central region for ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions, and find the chiral restoration occurs there, so that the current quark mass seems to be suitable in calculating the q-q-bar pair creation rate by the Schwinger formula in the flux-tube picture.

    2005-01-01

    We try to apply a constituent quark model (a variety chiral constituent quark model) and the resonating group approach for the multi-quark problems to compute the effective potential between the NN- in S-wave (the quarks in the nucleons N and N-, and the two nucleons relatively as well, are in S wave) so as to see the possibility if there may be a tight bound state of six quarks as indicated by a strong enhancement at threshold of pp- in J/ψ and B decays. The effective potential which we obtain in terms of the model and approach shows if the experimental enhancement is really caused by a tight S-wave bound state of six quarks, then the quantum number of the bound state is very likely to be I = 1, JPC= 0-+.

    We study the transverse momentum dependent quark-gluon-quark correlation function. Using a spectator diquark model, we calculate the eight time-reversal-odd interaction-dependent twist-3 quark distributions appearing in the decomposition of the transverse momentum dependent quark-gluon-quark correlator. In order to obtain finite results, we assume a dipole form factor for the nucleon-quark-diquark coupling, instead of a point-like coupling. The results are compared with the time-reversal-odd interaction-independent twist-3 TMDs calculated in the same model.

    In the chiral magnetic effect an imbalance in the number of left- and right-handed quarks gives rise to an electromagnetic current parallel to the magnetic field produced in noncentral heavy-ion collisions. The chiral imbalance may be induced by topologically nontrivial gluon configurations via the QCD axial anomaly, while the resulting electromagnetic current itself is a consequence of the QED anomaly. In the Sakai-Sugimoto model, which in a certain limit is dual to large-N_c QCD, we discuss...

    We analyze the equation of state of 2+1 flavor lattice QCD at zero baryon density by constructing the simple quark-hadron hybrid model that has both quark and hadron components simultaneously. Lattice data on the equation of state are decomposed into hadron and quark components by using the model. The transition temperature is defined by the temperature at which the hadron component is equal to the quark one in the equation of state. The transition temperature thus obtained is about 215 MeV and somewhat higher than the chiral and the deconfinement pseudocritical temperatures defined by the temperature at which the susceptibility or the derivative of the order parameter with respect to temperature becomes maximum.

The binding energy, radius and mean lifetime of Omega-Omega and Omega-Xi are given. We find the dibaryons Omega-Omega, Omega-Xi are metastable at zero temperature, but the strong decay channel for Omega-Omega opens when temperature arrives at 129.3MeV. It is shown that our results are in good agreement with those given by the chiral S(3) quark model.

    We have studied the properties of hot and dense quark matter based on the 3-flavor Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model as well as its Polyakov-loop extension with scalar-isovector and vector-isovector couplings. Isospin splittings of constituent mass, chiral phase transition boundary, and critical point for $u$ and $d$ quarks have been observed for positive isovector coupling constants but are suppressed for negative ones. The quark matter symmetry energy is shown to be sensitive to the isovector coupling. A positive scalar-isovector coupling constant is more likely to lead to an unstable equation of state for isospin asymmetric quark matter. The isovector coupling has been further found to affect particle fractions as well as the equation of state in hybrid stars.

  9. Quark Loop Effects on Dressed Gluon Propagator in Framework of Global Color Symmetry Model

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    ZONG Hong-Shi; SUN Wei-Min

    2006-01-01

    Based on the global color symmetry model (GCM), a method for obtaining the quark loop effects on the dressed gluon propagator in GCM is developed. In the chiral limit, it is found that the dressed gluon propagator containing the quark loop effects in the Nambu-Goldstone and Wigner phases are quite different. In solving the quark self-energy functions in the two different phases and subsequent study of bag constant one should use the above dressed gluon propagator as input. The above approach for obtaining the current quark mass effects on the dressed gluon propagator is quite general and can also be used to calculate the chemical potential dependence of the dressed gluon propagator.

    We study UA(1 ) symmetry and its relation to chiral symmetry at finite temperature through the application of the functional renormalization group to the S U (3 ) quark-meson model. Very different from the mass gap and mixing angel between η and η' mesons, which are defined at the mean-field level and behavior like condensates, the topological susceptibility includes a fluctuation-induced part which becomes dominant at high temperature. As a result, the UA(1 ) symmetry is still considerably broken in the chiral symmetry restoration phase.

In the presence of a strong attraction in the scalar channel the chiral symmetry is spontaneously broken and as a consequence the composite meson states are generated in all channels. With the help of Operator Product Expansion the appropriate set of Chiral Symmetry Restoration (CSR) Sum Rules in these channels are imposed as matching rules to QCD at intermediate energies.

  13. Decaying hadrons within constituent-quark models

    CERN Document Server

    Kleinhappel, Regina

    2012-01-01

    Within conventional constituent-quark models hadrons come out as stable bound states of the valence (anti)quarks. Thereby the resonance character of hadronic excitations is completely ignored. A more realistic description of hadron spectra can be achieved by including explicit mesonic degrees of freedom, which couple directly to the constituent quarks. We will present a coupled-channel formalism that describes such hybrid systems in a relativistically invariant way and allows for the decay of excited hadrons. The formalism is based on the point-form of relativistic quantum mechanics. If the confining forces between the (anti)quarks are described by instantaneous interactions it can be formally shown that the mass-eigenvalue problem for a system that consists of dynamical (anti)quarks and mesons reduces to a hadronic eigenvalue problem in which the eigenstates of the pure confinement problem (bare hadrons) are coupled via meson loops. The only point where the quark substructure enters are form factors at the m...

  15. Probing b-quark charged-current chiral structure via polarized-Λb semileptonic decay

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Λb semileptonic decay to Λce anti νe ist studied within the heavy quark effective theory, where Λb is moving and polarized along the direction of its motion. Normalized energy distributions of e and Λc are both calculated for V±A interactions by taking the OMIKRON ( anti Λ/mc) ( anti Λ triple bond mΛc-mc) corrections and electron pt cut effects into account. It is shown that the form factor (Isgur-Wise function) effects are significant: The shapes of the distribution curves are thereby considerably changed in comparison with those calculated within the quark model. In case of the electron energy spectrums, the difference between the V±A interactions are enhanced, while that in the Λc energy spectrums decreases. On the other hand, the OMIKRON ( anti Λ/mc) corrections are found to be negligible in both spectrums. (orig.)

The model is based on the Snyder-Yang algebra, which includes in the relativistically invariant way two parameters μc and λc with dimensionality of mass and length. The equations of motion obtained in the framework of the model contain the rising potentials which provide the confinement of color particles. The values of the parameters μc and λc, as well as the masses of constituent and current quarks are estimated

  18. Role of instantons in a chiral confining model

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In this paper we describe the role of instantons in a model of the nucleon called the chiral confining model (CCM). The effect of instantons is included through the 't Hooft interaction. In general, confining models tend to give for the product of nucleon mass and quark rms radius, MN left-angle r2 right-angle 1/2, values in the range 6--8, while the experimental value is 3.48. In the CCM, in principle, the gluons have been integrated out in favor of mesons. Hence the N-Δ mass splitting must be understood in terms of the spin-isospin dependent forces generated by pion exchange. Unfortunately, one-pion exchange contributes only about 50 MeV or less to the N-Δ mass splitting. The 't Hooft interaction is capable of resolving both these problems. The passage from QCD to the CCM modifies the strength of the 't Hooft interaction and, at present, we do not know what it is. We fix it by fitting MN-MΔ. With the strength so fixed we obtain values of MN left-angle r2 right-angle 1/2 in the range 4.4--5.1. A simple estimate of the correction for the motion of the center of mass of the nucleon, always present in any mean field calculation, reduces the value to 3.8--4.4. One hopes that the remaining discrepancy will be largely resolved when the mean-field approximation is improved by including quark-quark correlations

We perform the calculations in the light-cone formalism where the parton concept is well defined. We calculate the quark helicity and canonical orbital angular momentum. Then we calculate the gravitational form factors which are often related to the kinetic angular momentums, and find that even in a no gauge field model we cannot identify the canonical angular momentums with half the sum of gravitational form factors. In addition, we examine the model relation between the orbital angular momentum and pretzelosity, and find it is violated in the axial-vector case

  1. A model of quark and lepton mixing

    King, Stephen F

    2013-01-01

    We propose a model of quark and lepton mixing based on the tetrahedral A(4) family symmetry with quark-lepton unification via the tetra-colour Pati-Salam gauge group SU(4)_{PS}, together with SU(2)_L x U(1)_R. The "tetra-model" solves many of the flavour puzzles and remarkably gives ten predictions at leading order, including all six PMNS parameters. The Cabibbo angle is approximately given by 1/4, due to the tetra-vacuum alignment (1,4,2), providing the Cabibbo connection between quark and lepton mixing. Higher order corrections are responsible for the smaller quark mixing angles and CP violation and provide corrections to the Cabibbo and lepton mixing angles and phases. The tetra-model involves an SO(10)-like pattern of Dirac and heavy right-handed neutrino masses, with the strong up-type quark mass hierarchy cancelling in the see-saw mechanism, leading to a normal hierarchy of neutrino masses with an atmospheric angle in the first octant of 40 +/- 1 degree, a solar angle of 34 +/- 1 degree, a reactor angle...

We focus on the effect of the vector interaction on the chiral restoration at finite density in neutral matter.

    A covariant quark model, based both on the spectator formalism and on Vector Meson Dominance, and previously calibrated by the physical data, is here extended to the unphysical region of the lattice data by means of one single extra adjustable parameter - the constituent quark mass in the chiral limit. We calculated the Nucleon (N) and the Gamma N -> Delta form factors in the universe of values for that parameter described by quenched lattice QCD. A qualitative description of the Nucleon and Gamma N -> Delta form factors lattice data is achieved for light pion masses.

  4. Quark and pion effective couplings from polarization effects

    CERN Document Server

    Braghin, Fabio L

    2016-01-01

    A flavor SU(2) effective model for pions and quarks is derived by considering polarization effects departing from the usual quark-quark effective interaction induced by dressed gluon exchange, i.e. a global color model for QCD. For that, the quark field is decomposed into a component that yields light mesons and the quark-antiquark condensate, being integrated out by means of the auxiliary field method, and another component which yields constituent quarks. Within a longwavelength and weak quark field expansion (or large quark effective mass expansion) of a quark determinant, the leading terms are found up to the second order in a zero order derivative expansion, by neglecting vector mesons that are considerably heavier than the pion. Pions are considered in the structureless limit and, besides the chiral invariant pion self interaction terms that reproduce previously derived expressions, symmetry breaking terms are also presented. The leading chiral quark-quark effective couplings are also found correspondin...

    McNeil, J A

    1993-01-01

    We study a hybrid chiral model for the nucleon based on the linear sigma model with explicit quarks. We solve the model using a Fock-space configuration consisting of three quarks plus three quarks and a pion as the ground state ansatz in place of the ``hedgehog'' ansatz. We minimize the expectation value of the chiral hamiltonian in this ground state configuration and solve the resulting equations for nucleon quantum numbers. We calculate the canonical set of nucleon observables and compare with previous work.

  6. A model of quark and lepton mixing

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We propose a model of quark and lepton mixing based on the tetrahedral A4 family symmetry with quark-lepton unification via the tetra-colour Pati-Salam gauge group SU(4)PS, together with SU(2)L×U(1)R. The “tetra-model” solves many of the flavour puzzles and remarkably gives ten predictions at leading order, including all six PMNS parameters. The Cabibbo angle is approximately given by θC≈1/4, due to the tetra-vacuum alignment (1,4,2), providing the Cabibbo connection between quark and lepton mixing. Higher order corrections are responsible for the smaller quark mixing angles and CP violation and provide corrections to the Cabibbo and lepton mixing angles and phases. The tetra-model involves an SO(10)-like pattern of Dirac and heavy right-handed neutrino masses, with the strong up-type quark mass hierarchy cancelling in the see-saw mechanism, leading to a normal hierarchy of neutrino masses with an atmospheric angle in the first octant, θ23l=40∘±1∘, a solar angle θ12l=34∘±1∘, a reactor angle θ13l=9.0∘±0.5∘, depending on the ratio of neutrino masses m2/m3, and a Dirac CP violating oscillation phase δl=260∘±5∘

    CERN Document Server

    Shand, Zachary; Koning, Nico; Ouyed, Rachid

    2015-01-01

    FRBs are puzzling, millisecond, energetic radio transients with no discernible source; observations show no counterparts in other frequency bands. The birth of a quark star from a parent neutron star experiencing a quark nova - previously thought undetectable when born in isolation - provides a natural explanation for the emission characteristics of FRBs. The generation of unstable r-process elements in the quark nova ejecta provides millisecond exponential injection of electrons into the surrounding strong magnetic field at the parent neutron star's light cylinder via $\\beta$-decay. This radio synchrotron emission has a total duration of hundreds of milliseconds and matches the observed spectrum while reducing the inferred dispersion measure by approximately 200 cm$^{-3}$ pc. The model allows indirect measurement of neutron star magnetic fields and periods in addition to providing astronomical measurements of $\\beta$-decay chains of unstable neutron rich nuclei. Using this model, we can calculate expected FR...

  8. Pion Cloud Effects on △-N Mass Splitting from Quark Models

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    DONG Yu-Bing; FENG Qing-Guo

    2002-01-01

    Pion cloud effects on △-N mass splitting are studied based on quark models. Pseudo-scalar pion-quarkcoupling is discussed in the relativistic and nonrelativistic frameworks. We separately calculate the pion cloud effects bythe one-pion exchange potential and by another method which is consistent with the baryon chiral perturbation theory.Remark able discrepancy in the mass splitting between the two methods is shown.

    Mishustin, Igor N.; Koide, Tomoi; Denicol, Gabriel S.; Torrieri, Giorgio

    2014-01-01

    Starting from the linear sigma model with constituent quarks we derive the chiral fluid dynamics where hydrodynamic equations for the quark fluid are coupled to the equation of motion for the order-parameter field. In a static system at thermal equilibrium this model leads to a chiral phase transition which, depending on the choice of the quark-meson coupling constant, could be a crossover or a first order one. We investigate the stability of the chiral fluid in the static and expanding backg...

  10. Quarkyonic Chiral Spirals

    CERN Document Server

    Kojo, Toru; McLerran, Larry; Pisarski, Robert D

    2009-01-01

    We consider the formation of chiral density waves in Quarkyonic matter, which is a phase where cold, dense quarks experience confining forces. We model confinement following Gribov and Zwanziger, taking the gluon propagator, in Coulomb gauge and momentum space, as 1/(p^2)^2. We assume that the number of colors, N, is large, and that the quark chemical potential, mu, is much larger than renormalization mass scale, Lambda_QCD. To leading order in 1/N and Lambda_QCD, a gauge theory with Nf flavors of massless quarks in 3+1 dimensions naturally reduces to a gauge theory in 1+1 dimensions, with an enlarged flavor symmetry of SU(2Nf). Through an anomalous chiral rotation, in two dimensions a Fermi sea of massless quarks maps directly onto the corresponding theory in vacuum. A chiral condensate forms locally, and varies with the spatial position, z, as . Following Schon and Thies, we term this two dimensional pion condensate a (Quarkyonic) chiral spiral. Massive quarks also exhibit chiral spirals, with the magnitude...

    Anisovich, V V; Nyíri, J; Shabelski, Yu M

    2004-01-01

    This is an updated version of the book published in 1985. QCD-motivated, it gives a detailed description of hadron structure and soft interactions in the additive quark model, where hadrons are regarded as composite systems of dressed quarks. In the past decade it has become clear that nonperturbative QCD, responsible for soft hadronic processes, may differ rather drastically from perturbative QCD. The understanding of nonperturbative QCD requires a detailed investigation of the experiments and the theoretical approaches. Bearing this in mind, the book has been rewritten paying special attenti

  12. Chiral Superfluidity for QCD

    CERN Document Server

    Kalaydzhyan, Tigran

    2014-01-01

    We argue that the strongly coupled quark-gluon plasma formed at LHC and RHIC can be considered as a chiral superfluid. The "normal" component of the fluid is the thermalized matter in common sense, while the "superfluid" part consists of long wavelength (chiral) fermionic states moving independently. We use the bosonization procedure with a finite cut-off and obtain a dynamical axion-like field out of the chiral fermionic modes. Then we use relativistic hydrodynamics for macroscopic description of the effective theory obtained after the bosonization. Finally, solving the hydrodynamic equations in gradient expansion, we find that in the presence of external electromagnetic fields or rotation the motion of the "superfluid" component gives rise to the chiral magnetic, chiral vortical, chiral electric and dipole wave effects. Latter two effects are specific for a two-component fluid, which provides us with crucial experimental tests of the model.

  13. Quark cluster model in the three-nucleon system

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The quark cluster model is used to investigate the structure of the three-nucleon systems. The nucleon-nucleon interaction is proposed considering the colour-nucleon clusters and incorporating the quark degrees of freedom. The quark-quark potential in the quark compound bag model agrees with the central force potentials. The confinement potential reduces the short-range repulsion. The colour van der Waals force is determined. Then, the probability of quark clusters in the three-nucleon bound state systems are numerically calculated using realistic nuclear wave functions. The results of the present calculations show that quarks cluster themselves in three-quark systems building the quark cluster model for the trinucleon system. (author)

    2016-01-01

    Production of top quark pairs in association with heavy Standard Model bosons or with heavy flavour quark-pairs is important both as a signal and a background in several ATLAS analyses. Strong constraints on such processes cannot at present be obtained from data, and therefore their modeling by Monte Carlo simulation as well as the associated uncertainties are important. This poster documents the Monte Carlo samples currently being used in ATLAS for the ttH and ttV (V=W,Z vector bosons) and tt+bottom and charm quark pairs processes for sqrt(s)=13 TeV proton-proton collisions.

    Polyakov-loop extended chiral effective models are important tools to describe the phase structure and thermodynamics of strongly interacting matter. We show that taking into account the backreaction of quarks onto the gauge sector is crucial in such models to achieve results for the order parameters and thermodynamics that are in line with lattice calculations. Achieving a good description of lattice data at zero density, we test the reliability of those models in systems containing other control parameters besides the temperature by confronting its results with lattice data at nonzero isospin. Furthermore, we investigate the phase structure of the three-dimensional T-μ{sub isospin}-μ{sub quark} phase diagram and calculate the surface tension of the first order phase transition at small temperatures and large quark densities.

    2007-01-01

    The phase structure and equation of state for two-flavor quark matter under compact star constraints is studied within a nonlocal chiral quark model. Chiral symmetry breaking leads to rather large, density dependent quark masses at the phase transition to quark matter. The influence of diquark pairing gaps and quark masses on density dependent emissivities for the direct URCA is discussed. Since m_u>m_d, the direct URCA process due to quark masses cannot occur. We present cooling curves for m...

  18. Partial restoration of chiral symmetry in the color flux tube

    CERN Document Server

    Iritani, Takumi; Hashimoto, Shoji

    2015-01-01

    Using the quark eigenmodes computed on the lattice with the overlap-Dirac operator, we investigate the spatial distribution of the chiral condensate around static color sources corresponding to quark-antiquark and three-quark systems. A flux structure of chromo fields appears in the presence of such color charges. The magnitude of the chiral condensate is reduced inside the color flux, which implies partial restoration of chiral symmetry inside hadrons. Taking a static baryon source in a periodic box as a toy model of the nuclear matter, we estimate the magnitude of the chiral symmetry restoration as a function of baryon matter density.

    2014-01-01

    We calculate the Wigner functions for a quark target dressed with a gluon. These give a combined position and momentum space information of the quark distributions and are related to both generalized parton distributions (GPDs) and transverse momentum dependent parton distributions (TMDs). We calculate and compare the different definitions of quark orbital angular momentum in this model. We compare our results with other model calculations.

    The three-flavor Skyrme-'t Hooft-Witten model is interpreted in terms of a quark-like substructure, leading to a new model of explicitly confined color-free ``quarks'' reminiscent of Gell-Mann's original pre-color quarks, but with unexpected and significant differences.

    Using the MIT bag model, we study the contribution from the gluon vector potential due to the spectators to the orbital angular momentum of a quark in the bag model. For $\\alpha_s = {\\cal O}(1)$, this spectator contribution to the quark orbital angular momentum in the gauge-covariant Ji decomposition is of the same order as the non gauge-covariant quark orbital angular momentum and its magnitude is larger for $d$ than for $u$ quarks and negative for both.

  4. Chiral Relaxation Time at the Chiral Crossover of Quantum Chromodynamics

    CERN Document Server

    Ruggieri, M; Chernodub, M

    2016-01-01

    We study microscopic processes responsible for chirality flips in the thermal bath of Quantum Chromodynamics at finite temperature and zero baryon chemical potential. We focus on the temperature range where the crossover from chirally broken phase to quark-gluon plasma takes place, namely $T \\simeq (150, 200)$ MeV. The processes we consider are quark-quark scatterings mediated by collective excitations with the quantum number of pions and $\\sigma$-meson, hence we refer to these processes simply as \\sugg{to} one-pion (one-$\\sigma$) exchange\\sugg{s}. We use a Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model to compute equilibrium properties of the thermal bath, as well as the relevant scattering kernel to be used in the collision integral to estimate the chiral relaxation time $\\tau$. We find $\\tau\\simeq 0.1 \\div 1$ fm/c around the chiral crossover.

  5. Scaling violation and the magnetic equation of state in chiral models

    Almasi, Gabor Andras; Friman, Bengt; Redlich, Krzysztof

    2016-01-01

    The critical behavior of the order parameter at the chiral phase transition of strongly interacting matter and the corresponding magnetic equation of state is studied within effective models. We explore universal and non-universal structures near the critical point. These include the scaling functions, the leading corrections to scaling and the corresponding size of the critical region as well as their dependence on an external symmetry breaking field. We consider two models in the mean-field approximation, the quark-meson (QM) and the Polyakov loop extended quark-meson (PQM) models, and compare their critical properties with a purely bosonic theory, the $O(N)$ linear sigma (LS) model in the $N\\to\\infty$ limit. In these models the order parameter scaling function is found analytically using the high temperature expansion of the thermodynamic potential. The effects of a gluonic background on the non-universal scaling parameters are quantified within the PQM model.

    We present a model of baryonic matter which contains free constituent quarks in addition to bound constituent quarks in nucleons. In addition to the common linear sigma-model we include the exchange of vector-mesons.

The model is extended to all octet and decuplet baryons. In this model, the reduction of the quark spin, due to the spin dilution in the chiral splitting processes, is transferred into the orbital motion of quarks and antiquarks.

    2011-10-15

    We combine moduli stabilisation and (chiral) model building in a fully consistent global set-up in Type IIB/F-theory. We consider compactifications on Calabi-Yau orientifolds which admit an explicit description in terms of toric geometry. We build globally consistent compactifications with tadpole and Freed-Witten anomaly cancellation by choosing appropriate brane set-ups and world-volume fluxes which also give rise to SU(5)- or MSSM-like chiral models. We fix all the Kaehler moduli within the Kaehler cone and the regime of validity of the 4D effective field theory. This is achieved in a way compatible with the local presence of chirality. The hidden sector generating the non-perturbative effects is placed on a del Pezzo divisor that does not have any chiral intersections with any other brane. In general, the vanishing D-term condition implies the shrinking of the rigid divisor supporting the visible sector. However, we avoid this problem by generating r

    Park, Woosung; Lee, Su Houng

    2015-01-01

    We investigate the properties of dibaryons containing u and d quarks in the constituent quark model. In constructing the ground state wave function, we choose the spatial part to be fully symmetric and the remaining color, isospin and spin part to be antisymmetric so as to satisfy the the Pauli principle. By adapting the IS coupling scheme that combine the isospin basis function with the spin basis function, and subsequently coupling this to the color singlet basis function, we construct the color $\\otimes$ isospin $\\otimes$ spin states compatible with the physical states of the dibaryon. By using the variational method, we then calculate the mass of the dibaryon in a nonrelativistic potential model, involving Coulomb, color confinement and color-spin hyperfine interaction. In particular, to asses the stability for different types of the confinement potential, we introduce one that is linearly proportional to the interquark distance and another to its square root. For all cases considered, we find that there ...

    A model of subconstituents for quarks and leptons is presented in which each of three different types transforms under a different group which is gauged. The binding is taken as magnetic, the dual of the usual electric charge and hence very strong. The spin of the constituents is zero. The spin of the bound states arises dynamically. Weak interactions violate parity maximally and the Weinberg angle, related to the generation problem, comes out well numerically. Two exotic states are predicted.

    We discuss the flavor content of the nucleon in an unquenched quark model in which the effects of quark-antiquark pairs (up, down and strange) are taken into account in an explicit form. It is shown that the inclusion of quark-antiquark pairs leads to an excess of anti-d over anti-u quarks in the proton and to a large contribution of orbital angular momentum to the spin of the proton.

  17. Quark-hadron phase transition in a three flavor PNJL model for interacting quarks

    CERN Document Server

    Yamazaki, Kanako

    2013-01-01

    We extend our previous study of the quark-hadron phase transition at finite temperatures with zero net baryon density by two flavor Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model with Polyakov loop to the three flavor case in a scheme which incorporates flavor nonet pseudo scalar and scalar mesonic correlations on equal footing. The role of the axial U(1) breaking Kobayashi-Maskawa-'t Hooft interaction on the low-lying thermal excitations is examined. At low temperatures, only mesonic correlations, mainly due to low mass mesonic collective excitations, pions and kaons, dominate the pressure while thermal excitations of quarks are suppressed by the Polyakov loop. As temperature increases, kaons and pions melt into the continuum of quark and anti-quark excitations successively so that hadronic phase changes continuously to the quark phase where quark excitations dominate pressure together with gluon pressure coming from the effective potential for the Polyakov loop. Since we introduce mesons as not elementary fields but auxiliary fi...

    We present a determination, from lattice QCD, of charge symmetry violation in the spin- independent and spin-dependent parton distribution functions of the nucleon. This is done by chirally extrapolating recent QCDSF/UKQCD Collaboration lattice simulations of the first several Mellin moments of the parton distribution functions of octet baryons to the physical point.

  20. Confronting effective models for deconfinement in dense quark matter with lattice data

    Science.gov (United States)

    Andersen, Jens O.; Brauner, Tomáš; Naylor, William R.

    2015-12-01

    Ab initio numerical simulations of the thermodynamics of dense quark matter remain a challenge. Apart from the infamous sign problem, lattice methods have to deal with finite volume and discretization effects as well as with the necessity to introduce sources for symmetry-breaking order parameters. We study these artifacts in the Polyakov-loop-extended Nambu-Jona-Lasinio (PNJL) model and compare its predictions to existing lattice data for cold and dense two-color matter with two flavors of Wilson quarks. To achieve even qualitative agreement with lattice data requires the introduction of two novel elements in the model: (i) explicit chiral symmetry breaking in the effective contact four-fermion interaction, referred to as the chiral twist, and (ii) renormalization of the Polyakov loop. The feedback of the dense medium to the gauge sector is modeled by a chemical-potential-dependent scale in the Polyakov-loop potential. In contrast to previously used analytical Ansätze, we determine its dependence on the chemical potential from lattice data for the expectation value of the Polyakov loop. Finally, we propose adding a two-derivative operator to our effective model. This term acts as an additional source of explicit chiral symmetry breaking, mimicking an analogous term in the lattice Wilson action.

  1. Quark nova model for fast radio bursts

    Science.gov (United States)

    Shand, Zachary; Ouyed, Amir; Koning, Nico; Ouyed, Rachid

    2016-05-01

    Fast radio bursts (FRBs) are puzzling, millisecond, energetic radio transients with no discernible source; observations show no counterparts in other frequency bands. The birth of a quark star from a parent neutron star experiencing a quark nova - previously thought undetectable when born in isolation - provides a natural explanation for the emission characteristics of FRBs. The generation of unstable r-process elements in the quark nova ejecta provides millisecond exponential injection of electrons into the surrounding strong magnetic field at the parent neutron star's light cylinder via β-decay. This radio synchrotron emission has a total duration of hundreds of milliseconds and matches the observed spectrum while reducing the inferred dispersion measure by approximately 200 cm‑3 pc. The model allows indirect measurement of neutron star magnetic fields and periods in addition to providing astronomical measurements of β-decay chains of unstable neutron rich nuclei. Using this model, we can calculate expected FRB average energies (∼ 1041 erg) and spectral shapes, and provide a theoretical framework for determining distances.

    2016-04-01

    We study the phase diagram for staggered quarks using chiral perturbation theory. In beyond-the-standard-model simulations using a large number (>8 ) of staggered fermions, unphysical phases appear for coarse enough lattice spacing. We argue that chiral perturbation theory can be used to interpret one of these phases. In addition, we show that only three broken phases for staggered quarks exist, at least for lattice spacings in the regime a2≪ΛQCD2 .

    In this work we construct a chiral SU(3) Lagrangian with D mesons of spin JP=0- and JP=1- and charmed baryons of spin JP=1 /2+ and JP=3 /2+. There are 42 leading two-body counterterms involving two charmed baryon fields and two D meson fields in the constructed Lagrangian. The heavy-quark spin symmetry leads to 35 sum rules, while the large-Nc operator analysis predicts 29 at the next-to leading order of the 1 /Nc expansion. The combination of the sum rules from both the heavy-quark symmetry and the large-Nc analysis results in 38 independent sum rules, which reduces the number of free parameters in the chiral Lagrangian to only four. This is a remarkable result demonstrating the consistency of the heavy-quark symmetry and large-Nc operator analysis.

    We construct, in the work, chiral $SU(3)$ Lagrangian with $D$ mesons of spin $J^P=0^-$ and $J^P=1^-$ and charmed baryons of spin $J^P=1/2^+$ and $J^P=3/2^+$. There are 42 leading two-body counter-terms involving two charmed baryon fields and two $D$ meson fields in the constructed Lagrangian. The heavy-quark spin symmetry leads to 35 sum rules while the large-$N_c$ operator analysis predicts 29 ones at the next-to leading order of $1/N_c$ expansion. The combination of the sum rules from both the heavy-quark symmetry and the large-$N_c$ analysis results in 38 independent sum rules which reduces the number of free parameters in the chiral Lagrangian down to 4 only. This is a remarkable result demonstrating the consistency of the heavy-quark symmetry and large-$N_c$ operator analysis.

    The Higgs boson is a central part of the electroweak theory and is crucial to generate masses for quarks, leptons and the weak gauge bosons. We use a 4-dimensional Euclidean lattice formulation of the Higgs-Yukawa sector of the electroweak model to compute physical quantities in the path integral approach which is evaluated by means of Monte Carlo simulations thus allowing for fully non perturbative calculations. The chiral symmetry of the model is incorporated by using the Neuberger overlap Dirac operator. The here considered Higgs-Yukawa model does not involve the weak gauge bosons and furthermore, only a degenerate doublet of top- and bottom quarks are incorporated. The goal of this work is to study the resonance properties of the Higgs boson and its sensitivity to the strength of the quartic self coupling. (orig.)

  7. Currents, charges, and canonical structure of pseudodual chiral models

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We discuss the pseudodual chiral model to illustrate a class of two-dimensional theories which have an infinite number of conservation laws but allow particle production, at variance with naive expectations. We describe the symmetries of the pseudodual model, both local and nonlocal, as transmutations of the symmetries of the usual chiral model. We refine the conventional algorithm to more efficiently produce the nonlocal symmetries of the model, and we discuss the complete local current algebra for the pseudodual theory. We also exhibit the canonical transformation which connects the usual chiral model to its fully equivalent dual, further distinguishing the pseudodual theory

  8. Chiral Symmetry Restoration from a Boundary

    CERN Document Server

    Tiburzi, B C

    2013-01-01

    The boundary of a manifold can alter the phase of a theory in the bulk. We explore the possibility of a boundary-induced phase transition for the chiral symmetry of QCD. In particular, we investigate the consequences of imposing homogeneous Dirichlet boundary conditions on the quark fields. Such boundary conditions are employed on occasion in lattice gauge theory computations, for example, when including external electromagnetic fields, or when computing quark propagators with a reduced temporal extent. Homogeneous Dirichlet boundary conditions force the chiral condensate to vanish at the boundary, and thereby obstruct the spontaneous breaking of chiral symmetry in the bulk. As the restoration of chiral symmetry due to a boundary is a non-perturbative phenomenon, we utilize the sigma model to exemplify the issues. Using this model, we find that chiral symmetry is completely restored if the length of the compact direction is less than 2.0 fm. For lengths greater than about 4 fm, an approximately uniform chiral...

  9. Exotic Quarks in Twin Higgs Models

    CERN Document Server

    Cheng, Hsin-Chia; Salvioni, Ennio; Tsai, Yuhsin

    2015-01-01

    The Twin Higgs model provides a natural theory for the electroweak symmetry breaking without the need of new particles carrying the standard model gauge charges below a few TeV. In the low energy theory, the only probe comes from the mixing of the Higgs fields in the standard model and twin sectors. However, an ultraviolet completion is required below ~ 10 TeV to remove residual logarithmic divergences. In non-supersymmetric completions, new exotic fermions charged under both the standard model and twin gauge symmetries have to be present to accompany the top quark, thus providing a high energy probe of the model. Some of them carry standard model color, and may therefore be copiously produced at current or future hadron colliders. Once produced, these exotic quarks can decay into a top together with twin sector particles. If the twin sector particles escape the detection, we have the irreducible stop-like signals. On the other hand, some twin sector particles may decay back into the standard model particles ...

    We study the spatial inhomogeneity of the Polyakov loop induced by inhomogeneous chiral condensates. We formulate an effective model of gluons on the background fields of chiral condensates, and perform its lattice simulation. On the background of inhomogeneous chiral condensates, the Polyakov loop exhibits an in-phase spatial oscillation with the chiral condensates. We also analyze the heavy quark potential and show that the inhomogeneous Polyakov loop indicates the inhomogeneous confinement...

  11. A Three-Flavor Chiral Effective Model with Four Baryonic Multiplets within the Mirror Assignment

    CERN Document Server

    Olbrich, Lisa; Giacosa, Francesco; Rischke, Dirk H

    2015-01-01

    In the case of three quark flavors, (pseudo)scalar diquarks transform as antiquarks under chiral transformations. We construct four spin-1/2 baryonic multiplets from left- and right-handed quarks as well as left- and right-handed diquarks. The fact that two of these multiplets transform in a "mirror" way allows for chirally invariant mass terms. We then embed these baryonic multiplets into the Lagrangian of the so-called extended Linear Sigma Model, which features (pseudo)scalar and (axial-)vector mesons, as well as glueballs. Reducing the Lagrangian to the two-flavor case, we obtain four doublets of nucleonic states. These mix to produce four experimentally observed states with definite parity: the positive-parity nucleon $N(939)$ and Roper resonance $N(1440)$, as well as the negative-parity resonances $N(1535)$ and $N(1650)$. We determine the parameters of the nucleonic part of the Lagrangian from a fit to masses and decay properties of the aforementioned states. Studying the limit of vanishing quark conden...

  12. A chiral soliton model constrained by gA/gV

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We present one example of a smooth chiral confinement model of the nucleon constrained (within a mean-field theory) by the measured gA/gV of the neutron. The resulting confining scalar potential for the quarks inside the nucleon has a maximum in the surface and approaches its asymptotic value from above. Low-energy properties of the nucleon (three quarks in their ground state) are not spoiled by this peculiar surface behaviour. The 'helicity argument' (only spin-carrying fields inside the nucleon contribute to gA/gV) we employed here further, sheds new light on the modelling of the hadrons in terms of hybrid skyrmions and on the description of the Nπ decay mode of excited baryon states

We consider the spontaneous chiral symmetry breaking and the diquark condensation together with the behavior of the Polyakov loop for the phase diagram of quark-hadron matter. We discuss the spectrum of mesons and diquark baryons (boson at finite temperature and density.We derive also the linear sigma model Lagrangian for diquark baryon and mesons.

  14. Effect of temperature gradient on heavy quark anti-quark potential using gravity dual model

    CERN Document Server

    Ganesh, S

    2016-01-01

    The Quark-gluon plasma (QGP) is an expanding fireball, with finite dimensions. Given the finite dimensions, the temperature would be highest at the center, and close to the critical temperature, $T_c$, at the boundary, giving rise to a temperature gradient inside the QGP. A heavy quark anti-quark pair immersed in the QGP medium would see this temperature gradient. The effect of the temperature gradient on the quark anti-quark potential is analyzed using a gravity dual model. The resulting modification to the potential due to the temperature gradient is seen to have a $L^{-2}$ correction term. This could be a possible fallout of the breaking of conformal invariance at finite temperature.

  15. Three-flavor chiral effective model with four baryonic multiplets within the mirror assignment

    2016-01-01

    We study three-flavor octet baryons by using the so-called extended Linear Sigma Model (eLSM). Within a quark-diquark picture, the requirement of a mirror assignment naturally leads to the consideration of four spin-$\\frac{1}{2}$ baryon multiplets. A reduction of the Lagrangian to the two-flavor case leaves four doublets of nucleonic states which mix to form the experimentally observed states $N(939)$, $N(1440)$, $N(1535)$ and $N(1650)$. We determine the parameters of the nucleonic part of the Lagrangian from a fit to masses and decay properties of the aforementioned states. By tracing their masses when chiral symmetry is restored, we conclude that the pairs $N(939)$, $N(1535)$ and $N(1440)$, $N(1650)$ form chiral partners.

  16. Quark models of multiproduction off nuclear targets

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A subject of this talk is a review of principal predictions of the quark model, with particular emphasis on the intranuclear interactions and the nucleus responce. Some novel applications of the model to the deep inelastic leptoproduction of nuclei, the process best tailored to test the formation length concept, are reported. Numerical calculations are based on the Monte Carlo code which produces exclusive final states, which can be subjected to precisely the same cuts as applied experimentally. An important ingredient is the multi-nucleon short-range correlation mechanism of the cumulative proton production, which contributes significantly in the forward hemisphere too. The constituent quark model supplemented by the formation length formalism, does remarkable well in the hadron-nucleus and lepton-nucleus collisions. The fragmentation of nucleus can only be understood as a quantitative level at an expense of significant cascading, which accounts for 30-40% of the suplus multiplicity. That is particularly evident in the lepton-nucleus interactions. None of the numerous models where this cascading is ignored can be regarded as credible

  17. Top quark and Higgs physics in standard model extensions

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In this thesis we have studied several extensions of the SM and their implications on the strength and structure of the tbW vertex, on the production and decays of pseudoscalar and heavy Higgs scalars at the LHC, and the effects that models with a fourth generation have on electroweak precision observables. Apart from the SM with a fourth generation of chiral fermions, the extensions we studied all feature an extended electroweak symmetry breaking (EWSB) sector. In the case of the type-II 2HDM and the MSSM, the extended EWSB sector consists of elementary Higgs fields. In the case of Topcolor assisted Technicolor (TC2), which is a model of dynamical EWSB, the scalar and pseudoscalar fields are composite. By scanning over the phenomenologically and theoretically allowed regions of the respective parameters spaces, we determined the largest possible cross sections σ(pp→φ→VV') where VVprime element of {W+W-, ZZγγ, Zγ} for both the heavy scalar and pseudoscalar states in the above models. We found that non-SUSY models with an extended Higgs sector and only three generations, namely the type-II 2HDM and the TC2, still allow for observable pseudoscalar cross sections σ(pp → A → VV') at the LHC. In particular for the final states W+W- and γγ. In the MSSM, the discovery of the pseudoscalar A through its decays into electroweak gauge bosons is very unlikely. However, scalar cross sections σ(pp→H→W+W-) can still be of observable size at the LHC in large parts of the MSSM parameter space. SM extensions with an extended EWSB sector and four chiral generations are strongly disfavoured; direct Higgs boson searches exclude large parts of the parameter space and it is challenging to bring such an extension into accordance with electroweak precision data. On the other hand, models with additional vector-like quarks and an extended Higgs sector are still viable. The SM with four chiral generations is (still) not ruled out by direct Higgs boson searches and can be

  19. Quark model analysis of the Sivers function

    Courtoy, A; Scopetta, S; Vento, V

    2008-01-01

    A formalism is developed aimed at evaluating the Sivers function entering single spin asymmetries. The approach is well suited for calculations which use constituent quark models to describe the structure of the nucleon. A non-relativistic approximation of the scheme is performed to calculate the Sivers function using the Isgur-Karl model. The results we have obtained are consistent with a sizable Sivers effect, with an opposite sign for the u and d flavors. This pattern is in agreement with the one found analysing, in the same model, the impact parameter dependent generalized parton distributions. Although a consistent QCD evolution of the results from the momentum scale of the model to the experimental one is not yet possible, an estimate shows that a reasonable agreement with the available data is obtained once the evolution of the model results is performed.

    Based on a relativistic quark model approach with an effective potential U(r) = (ac/2)(1 + γ0)r2, the spin content of the nucleon is investigated. Pseudo-scalar interaction between quarks and Goldstone bosons is employed to calculate the couplings between the Goldstone bosons and the nucleon. Different approaches to deal with the center of mass correction in the relativistic quark potential model approach are discussed.

    Kovács, Péter; Wolf, György

    2015-01-01

    In the framework of an SU(3) (axial)vector meson extended linear sigma model with additional constituent quarks and Polyakov loops, we investigate the effects of (axial)vector mesons on the chiral phase transition. The parameters of the Lagrangian are set at zero temperature and we use a hybrid approach where in the effective potential the constituent quarks are treated at one-loop level and all the mesons at tree-level. We have four order parameters, two scalar condensates and two Polyakov loop variables and their temperature and baryochemical potential dependence are determined from the corresponding field equations. We also investigate the changes of the tree-level scalar meson masses in the hot and dense medium.

  2. Inverse Magnetic Catalysis within a Confining Contact Interaction Model for Quarks

    CERN Document Server

    Ahmad, Aftab

    2016-01-01

    We evaluate the impact of an external magnetic field on the chiral symmetry and confinement-deconfinement transition temperatures by using a vector-vector contact interaction model for quarks regularized so as to include an explicit confining scale in the corresponding gap equation. Exploring the evolution of the chiral condensate and the confining scale with temperature $T$ and magnetic field strength $eB$ ($e$ represents the fundamental electric charge), we determine the pseudo-critical temperatures for the chiral ($T_c^\\chi$) and deconfinement ($T_c^c$) transitions from their inflection points, respectively. By construction, $T_c^\\chi= T_c^c$ in the chiral limit. Within a mean field approximation, we observe the magnetic catalysis phenomenon, characterized by a rising behavior of $T_c^\\chi$ and $T_c^c$ with growing $eB$. Considering a lattice inspired running coupling which monotonically decreases with $eB$, inverse magnetic catalysis takes place in our model. Our findings are also in agreement with predic...

  5. Wigner Distributions in Light-Front Quark Models

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We discuss the quark Wigner distributions which represent the quantum-mechanical analogues of the classical phase-space distributions. These functions can be obtained through a Fourier transform in the transverse space of the generalized transverse momentum dependent parton distributions, which encode the most general one-body information of partons in momentum space. In particular, we present a study within light-front quark models. The quark orbital angular momentum is also obtained from the phase-space average of the orbital angular momentum operator weighted with the Wigner distribution of unpolarized quark in a longitudinally polarized nucleon. The corresponding results calculated within different light-front quark models are compared with alternative definitions of the quark orbital angular momentum as given in terms of generalized parton distributions and transverse momentum dependent parton distributions.

    2016-08-01

    In order to describe the hadronization of polarized quarks, we discuss an extension of the quark-jet model to transverse momentum dependent fragmentation functions. The description is based on a product ansatz, where each factor in the product represents one of the transverse momentum dependent splitting functions, which can be calculated by using effective quark theories. The resulting integral equations and sum rules are discussed in detail for the case of inclusive pion production. In particular, we demonstrate that the three-dimensional momentum sum rules are satisfied naturally in this transverse momentum dependent quark-jet model. Our results are well suited for numerical calculations in effective quark theories and can be implemented in Monte Carlo simulations of polarized quark hadronization processes.

    The glitch of anomalous X-ray pulsars \\& soft gamma repeaters (AXP/SGRs) usually accompanied with detectable energy releases manifesting as X-ray bursts or outbursts, while the glitch of some pulsars like Vela release negligible energy. We find that these two types of glitch can naturally correspond to two types of starquake of solid stars. So far only quark star and quark cluster star model develop a solid star model. Then the two types of glitch may be an implication that the pulsar is composed by quark matter or quark cluster matter.

    In this chapter, we discuss several aspects of the theory of strong interactions in presence of a strong magnetic background. In particular, we summarize our results on the effect of the magnetic background on chiral symmetry restoration and deconfinement at finite temperature. Moreover, we compute the magnetic susceptibility of the chiral condensate and the quark polarization at zero temperature. Our theoretical framework is given by chiral models: the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio (NJL), the Polyakov improved NJL (or PNJL) and the Quark-Meson (QM) models. We also compare our results with the ones obtained by other groups.

    2010-01-01

    The chiral nonlinear ($\\sigma,\\pi,\\omega$) mean-field model is an extension of the conserving nonlinear (nonchiral) $\\sigma$-$\\omega$ hadronic mean-field model which is thermodynamically consistent, relativistic and Lorentz-covariant mean-field theory of hadrons. In the extended chiral ($\\sigma,\\pi,\\omega$) mean-field model, all the masses of hadrons are produced by chiral symmetry breaking mechanism, which is different from other conventional chiral partner models. By comparing both nonchiral and chiral mean-field approximations, the effects of chiral symmetry breaking to the mass of $\\sigma$-meson, coefficients of nonlinear interactions, coupling ratios of hyperons to nucleons and Fermi-liquid properties are investigated in nuclear matter, hyperonic matter, and neutron stars.

  10. Transverse momentum correlations of quarks in recursive jet models

    Artru, X; Redouane-Salah, E

    2016-01-01

    In the symmetric string fragmentation recipe adopted by PYTHIA for jet simulations, the transverse momenta of successive quarks are uncorrelated. This is a simplification but has no theoretical reason. Transverse momentum correlations are naturally expected, for instance, in a covariant multiperipheral model of quark hadronization. We propose a simple recipe of string fragmentation which lead to such correlations. The definition of the jet axis and its relation with the primordial transverse momentum of the quark is also discussed.

    Ortega, P G; Fernández, F

    2016-01-01

    The recently discovered $P_c(4380)^+$ and $P_c(4450)^+$ states at LHCb have masses close to the $\\bar D\\Sigma_c^*$ and $\\bar D^*\\Sigma_c$ thresholds, respectively, which suggest that they may have significant meson-baryon molecular components. We analyze these states in the framework of a constituent quark model which has been applied to a wide range of hadronic observables, being the model parameters, therefore, completely constrained. The $P_c(4380)^+$ and $P_c(4450)^+$ are studied as molecular states composed by charmed baryons and open charm mesons. Several bound states with the proper binding energy are found in the $\\bar D\\Sigma_c^*$ and $\\bar D^*\\Sigma_c$ channels. We discuss the possible assignments of these states from their decay widths. Moreover, two more states are predicted, associated with the $\\bar D\\Sigma_c$ and $\\bar D^* \\Sigma_c^*$ thresholds.

    2006-01-01

    We study the effects of a finite quark mass in the hedgehog configuration in the two phase chiral bag model. We discuss the chiral properties, such as the fractional baryon number and the chiral Casimir energy, by using the Debye expansion for the analytical calculation and the Strutinsky's smearing method for the numerical computation. It is shown that the fractional baryon number carried by massive quarks in the vacuum is canceled by that in the meson sector. A finite term of the chiral Casimir energy is obtained with subtraction of the logarithmic divergence term.

  13. String Junction Model, Cluster Hypothesis, Penta-Quark Baryon and Tetra-Quark Meson

    CERN Document Server

    Imachi, Masahiro; Otsuki, Shoichiro

    2007-01-01

    Thirty years ago we proposed string junction model of hadrons and examined structure and reaction of hadrons including exotic ones. Since 2003 some attentions have been paid to exotic hadrons, especially to penta-quark baryon. By critically examining its theoretical analysis of Diakonov et. al, we introduce to our model "cluster hypothesis", which guarantees the classical and established picture that mass difference of hadrons among flavor multiplet members comes from that of the constituents. According to the hypothesis, the penta-quark baryon Theta^+ (S=+1) including a strange anti-quark s(bar), which is assigned to a member of 10^* representation of flavor SU(3), is heavier than non-strange members of the multiplet by Delta_s =130 ~ 150 MeV, the mass difference between the strange and non-strange quarks. In our model the mass of the penta-quark baryon is estimated as around 3 GeV. Quite recently, the Belle Collaboration has reported a candidate for tetra-quark meson, Z^+(4430 MeV). This gives us powerful c...

The birth of a quark star from a parent neutron star experiencing a quark nova - previously thought undetectable when born in isolation - provides a natural explanation for the emission characteristics of FRBs. The generation of unstable r-process elements in the quark nova ejecta provides millisecond exponential injection of electrons into the sur...

    2014-01-01

    We report initial nucleon structure results computed on lattices with 2+1 dynamical M\\"obius domain wall fermions at the physical point generated by the RBC and UKQCD collaborations. At this stage, we evaluate only connected quark contributions. In particular, we discuss the nucleon vector and axial-vector form factors, nucleon axial charge and the isovector quark momentum fraction. From currently available statistics, we estimate the stochastic accuracy of the determination of $g_A$ and $_{u-d}$ to be around 10%, and we expect to reduce that to 5% within the next year. To reduce the computational cost of our calculations, we extensively use acceleration techniques such as low-eigenmode deflation and all-mode-averaging (AMA). We present a method for choosing optimal AMA parameters.

  16. Hadron properties within the model of quasi-independent quarks

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The spectrum of families of rho, PSI and Y mesons and electromagnetic characteristics of baryons are calculated, based on the model of quasi-independent quarks and assuming the independence of the scalar interaction potential of quark quantum numbers (including ''flavour''). Mesons that are bounded states of the different mass quarks are treated by introducing the concept of ''averaged quarks''. The case is also considered when the interaction potential behaves, with respect to the Lorentz group, as the fourth vector component. Good agreement of the calculation with the experimental data is observed

    A radiative model of quark and lepton masses utilizing the binary tetrahedral ($T^{\\prime}$) flavor symmetry, or horizontal symmetry, is proposed which produces the first two generation of quark masses through their interactions with vector-like quarks that carry charges under an additional $U(1)$. By softly-breaking the $T^{\\prime}$ to a residual $Z_4$ through the vector-like quark masses, a CKM mixing angle close to the Cabibbo angle is produced.

    We present an analysis of the dynamics of two-flavour QCD in the vacuum. Special attention is payed to the transition from the high energy quark-gluon regime to the low energy regime governed by hadron dynamics. This is done within a functional renormalisation group approach to QCD amended by dynamical hadronisation techniques. The latter allow us to describe conveniently the transition from the perturbative high-energy regime to the nonperturbative low-energy limit without suffering from a f...

    We calculate expectation values of QCD operators consisting of the products of the four operators of the light quarks corresponding to the scalar, pseudoscalar, vector, pseudovector (axial) and tensor Lorentz structures in the nucleon. All combinations of the light flavors are considered. For the evaluation we use elements of the Perturbative Chiral Quark Model (PCQM), approximating the contribution of the valence quarks by the contribution of the PCQM constituent quarks. The contribution of ...

    Park, Aaron; Lee, Su Houng

    2016-01-01

    We investigate the symmetry property and the stability of dibaryons containing two strange quarks and one heavy flavor with $I=\\frac{1}{2}$. We construct the wave function of the dibaryon in two ways. First, we directly construct the color and spin state of the dibaryon starting from the four possible SU(3) flavor state. Second, we consider the states composed of five light quarks, and then construct the wave function of the dibaryon by adding one heavy quark. The stability of the dibaryon against the strong decay into two baryons is discussed by using variational method in a constituent quark model with confining and hyperfine potential. We find that for all configurations with S=0,1,2, the ground states of the dibaryons are the sum of two baryons, and there are no compact bound state that is stable against the strong decay.

    Amsler, C

    2004-01-01

    We discuss theoretical predictions for the existence of exotic (non-quark-model) mesons and review prominent experimental candidates. These are especially the f0(1500) and f0(1710) mesons for the scalar glueball, fJ(2220) for the tensor glueball, η(1410) for the pseudoscalar glueball, f0(600), f0(980), a0(980), the still to be firmly established κ(800) and the f2(1565) for or two-meson states, and π1(1400), π1(1600) for hybrid states. We conclude that some of these states exist, offer our views and discuss crucial issues that need to be investigated both theoretically and experimentally.

  2. Implications of Local Chiral Symmetry Breaking

    La, H S

    2003-01-01

    The spontaneous symmetry breaking of a local chiral symmetry to its diagonal vector symmetry naturally realizes a complete geometrical structure more general than that of Yang-Mills (YM) theory, rather similar to that of gravity. A good example is the Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) with respect to the Chiral Color model. Also, a new anomaly-free particle content for a Chiral Color model is introduced: the Chiral Color can be realized without introducing whole new generations of quarks and leptons, but by simply enlarging each generation with new exotic fermions.

  3. Mass spectra of doubly heavy baryons in the relativistic quark model

    Mass spectra of baryons consisting of two heavy (b or c) and one light quarks are calculated in the framework of the relativistic quark model. The light quark-heavy diquark structure of the baryon is assumed. Under this assumption the ground and excited states of both the diquark and quark-diquark bound system are considered. The quark-diquark potential is constructed. The light quark is treated completely relativistically, while the expansion in the inverse heavy quark mass is used revealing...

    A nonrelativistic decomposition for the quark energy by the ratio of the dispersion of quark momentum squared and the effective quark mass is investigated in the framework of the relativistic oscillator constituent quark model as bound systems of three valence quarks. It is shown that relativistic corrections are defined by dispersion of the squared absolute value of the quark momentum. The variations of the quark mass and oscillator parameter are studied in detail both in the spectrum and in...

  5. Hadron spectrum in quenched lattice QCD and quark potential models

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We show that the quenched lattice QCD gives a hadron spectrum which remarkably agrees with that of quark potential models for quark mass mq ≥ mstrange, even when one uses the standard one-plaquette gauge action. This is contrary to what is stated in the literature. We clarify the reason of the discrepancy, paying close attention to systematic errors in numerical calculations. (orig.)

  7. The Thomas-Fermi Quark Model: Non-Relativistic Aspects

    CERN Document Server

    Liu, Quan

    2012-01-01

    Non-relativistic aspects of the Thomas-Fermi statistical quark model are developed. A review is given and our modified approach to spin in the model is explained. Our results are limited so far to two inequivalent simultaneous wave functions which can apply to multiple degenerate flavors. An explicit spin interaction is introduced, which requires the introduction of a generalized spin "flavor". Although the model is designed to be most reliable for many-quark states, we find surprisingly that it may be used to fit the low energy spectrum of octet and decouplet baryons. The low energy fit allows us to investigate the six-quark doubly strange H-dibaryon state, possible 6 quark nucleon-nucleon resonances and flavor symmetric strange states of higher quark content.

  9. Confronting effective models for deconfinement in dense quark matter with lattice data

    CERN Document Server

    Andersen, Jens O; Naylor, William

    2015-01-01

    Ab initio numerical simulations of the thermodynamics of dense quark matter remain a challenge. Apart from the infamous sign problem, lattice methods have to deal with finite volume and discretization effects as well as with the necessity to introduce sources for symmetry-breaking order parameters. We study these artifacts in the Polyakov-loop-extended Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model, and compare its predictions to existing lattice data for cold and dense two-color matter with two flavors of Wilson quarks. To achieve even qualitative agreement with lattice data \\emph{requires} the introduction of two novel elements in the model: (i) explicit chiral symmetry breaking in the effective contact four-fermion interaction, referred to as the chiral twist, and (ii) renormalization of the Polyakov loop. The feedback of the dense medium to the gauge sector is modeled by a chemical-potential-dependent scale in the Polyakov-loop potential. In contrast to previously used analytical ans\\"atze, we determine its dependence on the c...

  10. The effect of the chiral chemical potential on the chiral phase transition in the NJL model with different regularization schemes

    CERN Document Server

    Yu, Lang; Huang, Mei

    2015-01-01

    We study the chiral phase transition in the presence of the chiral chemical potential $\\mu_5$ using the two-flavor Nambu--Jona-Lasinio model. In particular, we analyze the reason why one can obtain two opposite behaviors of the chiral critical temperature as a function of $\\mu_5$ in the framework of different regularization schemes. We compare the modifications of the chiral condensate and the critical temperature due to $\\mu_5$ in different regularization schemes, analytically and numerically. Finally, we find that, for the conventional hard-cutoff regularization scheme, the increasing dependence of the critical temperature on the chiral chemical potential is an artifact, which is caused by the fact that it does not include complete contribution from the thermal fluctuations. When the thermal contribution is fully taken into account, the chiral critical temperature should decrease with $\\mu_5$.

  11. Ward identities and the analogous Goldberger-Treiman relation in a three-flavor Spectral Quark Model

    Science.gov (United States)

    Reis, E. A.; Mota, A. L.; Dias, E. W.

    2016-04-01

    This work presents the first results of an extension of the spectral quark model which includes different flavors. The spectral quark model is an approach based on a generalization of the Lehmann representation for the quark propagator. Gauge and chiral invariance are ensured with the help of gauge technique which provides particular solutions to the Ward-Takahashi identities. General conditions on the quark spectral function follow from natural physical requirements. In particular, the function is normalized, its positive momenta must vanish, while the physical observables depend on negative moments and the so-called log moments. As a consequence, the model is made finite. To allow the description of mesons constituted by different flavors of quarks we introduce different spectral functions and obtain vertex functions constructed from Ward-Takahashi identities that includes two different spectral (constituent) quark masses, allowing the physical description of strange mesons, for example. We obtain some observables based on the current approach and, in particular, the spectral version of the Kaon analogous Goldberger-Treiman relation.

  12. Fermions in two (1+1)-dimensional anomalous gauge theories: The chiral Schwinger model and the chiral quantum gravity

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The fermion in the gauge invariant formulation of the chiral Schwinger model and its relation to the fermion in the anomalous formulation is studied. A gauge invariant fermion operator is constructed that does not give rise to an asymptotic fermion field. It fits in the scheme prepared by generalized Schwinger models. Singularities in the short-distance limit of the chiral Schwinger model in the anomalous formulation lead to the conclusion that it is not a promising starting point for investigations towards realistic (3+1)-dimensional gauge theories with chiral fermion content. A new anomalous (1+1)-dimensional model is studied, the chiral quantum gravity. It is proven to be consistent if only a limited number of chiral fermions couple. The fermion propagator behaves analogously to the one in the massless Thirring model. A general rule is derived for the change of the fermion operator, which is induced by the breakdown of a gauge symmetry. (orig.)

    The paper deals with solution of a master chiral field model in two-dimensional space-time using the quantum method of inverse problem. A dominant role in the approach is played by the idea of relativistic model production on the basis of magnetic model in the scaling limit at S→ infinity. L-M pair of a master chiral field model is discussed. Formulae for regularized quantum Hamiltonian and Bethe-Ansatz above pseudovacuum are derived. The description of excitations and Dirac filling for the ground state is given. Continuous limit from magnetic model above physical vacuum is considered

    CERN Document Server

    Akers, D

    2003-01-01

    An elementary constituent-quark (CQ) model by Mac Gregor is reviewed with currently published data from light meson spectroscopy. It was previously shown in the CQ model that there existed several mass quanta m = 70 MeV, B = 140 MeV and X = 420 MeV, which were responsible for the quantization of meson yrast levels. The existence of a 70-MeV quantum was postulated by Mac Gregor and was shown to fit the Nambu empirical mass formula mn = (n/2)137me, n a positive integer. It is shown in this paper that recent data of new light mesons fit into the CQ model. With the introduction of the Russell-Saunders coupling scheme into the CQ model, several new meson particles are predicted to exist. The existence of the f0(560) meson is predicted and is shown to fit current experimental data from the Particle Data Group listing. The existence of meson partners or groupings is shown.

  16. Modeling Quark Gluon Plasma Using CHIMERA

    2011-01-01

    We attempt to model Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP) evolution from the initial Heavy Ion collision to the final hadronic gas state by combining the Glauber model initial state conditions with eccentricity fluctuations, pre-equilibrium flow, UVH2+1 viscous hydrodynamics with lattice QCD Equation of State (EoS), a modified Cooper-Frye freeze-out and the UrQMD hadronic cascade. We then evaluate the model parameters using a comprehensive analytical framework which together with the described model we call CHIMERA. Within our framework, the initial state parameters, such as the initial temperature (T$_{\\mathrm{init}}$), presence or absence of initial flow, viscosity over entropy density ($\\eta$/s) and different Equations of State (EoS), are varied and then compared simultaneously to several experimental data observables: HBT radii, particle spectra and particle flow. $\\chi^2$/nds values from comparison to the experimental data for each set of initial parameters will then used to find the optimal description of the QGP wi...

  17. Quark-gluon double parton distributions in the light-front dressed quark model

    CERN Document Server

    Kasemets, Tomas

    2016-01-01

    We study parton distributions for two partons, a quark and a gluon, in the light-front dressed quark model, with focus on correlations between the two partons. The model calculation leads to sizable spin-spin and spin-kinematic correlations of interest for studies of double parton scattering (DPS) in high-energy collisions. In particular, we find that the transverse dependence of the double parton distributions (DPDs) does not factorize within the model. The results gives insight to the strengths of correlations in different kinematical regions, which can help in constructing input DPDs in cross section calculations.

    2000-05-01

    We have studied the bulk viscosity of strange quark matter in the density dependent quark mass model (DDQM) and compared results with calculations done earlier in the MIT bag model where , masses were neglected and first order interactions were taken into account. We find that at low temperatures and high relative perturbations, the bulk viscosity is higher by 2 to 3 orders of magnitude while at low perturbations the enhancement is by 1–2 order of magnitude as compared to earlier results. Also the damping time is 2–3 orders of magnitude lower implying that the star reaches stability much earlier than in MIT bag model calculations.

    The improved quark mass density- dependent model which includes the coupling between the quarks and a non-linear scalar field is presented. Numerical analysis of solutions of the model is performed over a wide range of parameters. The wave functions of ground state and the lowest one-particle excited states with even and odd parity are given. The root-mean squared radius, the magnetic moment and the ratio between the axial-vector and the vector $\\beta$-decay coupling constants of the nucleon are calculated. We found that the present model is successful to describe the properties of nucleon.

  20. Thermodynamics of lattice QCD with 2 flavours of colour-sextet quarks: A model of walking/conformal Technicolor

    CERN Document Server

    Kogut, J B

    2010-01-01

    QCD with two flavours of massless colour-sextet quarks is considered as a model for conformal/walking Technicolor. If this theory possess an infrared fixed point, as indicated by 2-loop perturbation theory, it is a conformal(unparticle) field theory. If, on the other hand, a chiral condensate forms on the weak-coupling side of this would-be fixed point, the theory remains confining. The only difference between such a theory and regular QCD is that there is a range of momentum scales over which the coupling constant runs very slowly (walks). In this first analysis, we simulate the lattice version of QCD with two flavours of staggered quarks at finite temperatures on lattices of temporal extent $N_t=4$ and 6. The deconfinement and chiral-symmetry restoration couplings give us a measure of the scales associated with confinement and chiral-symmetry breaking. We find that, in contrast to what is seen with fundamental quarks, these transition couplings are very different. $\\beta=6/g^2$ for each of these transitions...

  1. Nucleon-nucleon interaction and the quark model

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The NN phase shifts are calculated using the quark model with a QCD inspired quark-quark force. The short range part of the NN force is given by quark and gluon exchange. The long range part is described by π and σ-meson exchange. The data fitted in the model are five values connected with three quarks only: the nucleon mass, the Δ mass, the root mean square radius of the charge distribution of the proton including the pion cloud, the π-N and the σ-N coupling constant at zero momentum transfer. The 1S and 3S phase shifts are nicely reproduced. The short range repulsion is decisively influenced by the node in the [42]r relative wave function. Very important is the colour magnetic quark-quark force which enlarges the [42]r admixture. In the OBEP's the short range repulsion is connected with the exchange of the ω-meson. But to reproduce the short range repulsion one had to blow up the ω-N coupling constant by a factor 2 to 3 compared to flavour SU3. With quark and gluon exchange the best fit to the ω-N coupling constant lies close to the SU3 flavour value. This fact strongly supports the notion that the real nature of the short range repulsion of the NN interaction have been found

  2. Thermodynamics of lattice QCD with 2 flavors of color-sextet quarks: A model of walking/conformal technicolor

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    QCD with two flavors of massless color-sextet quarks is considered as a model for conformal/walking technicolor. If this theory possesses an infrared fixed point, as indicated by 2-loop perturbation theory, it is a conformal (unparticle) field theory. If, on the other hand, a chiral condensate forms on the weak-coupling side of this would-be fixed point, the theory remains confining. The only difference between such a theory and regular QCD is that there is a range of momentum scales over which the coupling constant runs very slowly (walks). In this first analysis, we simulate the lattice version of QCD with two flavors of staggered quarks at finite temperatures on lattices of temporal extent Nt=4 and 6. The deconfinement and chiral-symmetry restoration couplings give us a measure of the scales associated with confinement and chiral-symmetry breaking. We find that, in contrast to what is seen with fundamental quarks, these transition couplings are very different. β=6/g2 for each of these transitions increases significantly from Nt=4 and Nt=6 as expected for the finite-temperature transitions of an asymptotically free theory. This suggests a walking rather than a conformal behavior, in contrast to what is observed with Wilson quarks. In contrast to what is found for fundamental quarks, the deconfined phase exhibits states in which the Polyakov loop is oriented in the directions of all three cube roots of unity. At very weak coupling the states with complex Polyakov loops undergo a transition to a state with a real, negative Polyakov loop.

  3. Chiral perturbation theory

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    After a general introduction to the structure of effective field theories, the main ingredients of chiral perturbation theory are reviewed. Applications include the light quark mass ratios and pion-pion scattering to two-loop accuracy. In the pion-nucleon system, the linear σ model is contrasted with chiral perturbation theory. The heavy-nucleon expansion is used to construct the effective pion-nucleon Lagrangian to third order in the low-energy expansion, with applications to nucleon Compton scattering. (author)

    From a model-independent point of view, we address the possibility that quark clustering could occur in cold quark matter at realistic baryon densities because of the likely strong coupling between quarks in compact stars.

  5. Electromagnetic properties of baryons in the constituent quark model

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The electromagnetic properties of baryons are investigated in the framework of a relativized quark model. The model includes beyond the usual single quark transition ansatz relativistic effects due to the strong interaction and confinement forces between the quarks. Furthermore the center-of-mass motion of the three-quark system is separated off in a Lorentz-invariant way. All relativistic correction terms are obtained by expanding the corresponding relativistic expressions in powers of the quark velocity. In this way recoil effects on the electromagnetic interaction between the photon and the baryon could be explicitly studied. Using the harmonic oscillator wavefunctions with the configuration mixing from the Isgur-Karl model, the form factors of the nucleon and the electromagnetic transition amplitudes both for longitudinally and transversely polarized photons are calculated for the most important baryon resonances. An extension to baryons involving strange quarks is also considered. Comparisons are made with the results of the nonrelativistic quark model and with some other approaches. (orig.)

  7. Neutral B Mixing in Staggered Chiral Perturbation Theory

    CERN Document Server

    Bernard, C

    2013-01-01

    I calculate, at one loop in staggered chiral perturbation theory, the matrix elements of the complete set of five local operators that may contribute to B mixing both in the Standard Model and in beyond-the-Standard-Model theories. Lattice computations of these matrix elements by the Fermilab Lattice/MILC collaborations (and earlier by the HPQCD collaboration) convert a light staggered quark into a naive quark, and construct the relevant 4-quark operators as local products of two local bilinears, each involving the naive light quark and the heavy quark. This particular representation of the operators turns out to be important in the chiral calculation, and it results in the presence of "wrong-spin" operators, whose contributions however vanish in the continuum limit. If the matrix elements of all five operators are computed on the lattice, then no additional low energy constants are required to describe wrong-spin chiral effects.

    We discuss a model for the study of quark-hadron duality in inclusive electron scattering based on solving the Dirac equation numerically for a scalar confining linear potential and a vector color Coulomb potential. We qualitatively reproduce the features of quark-hadron duality for all potentials considered, and discuss similarities and differences to previous models that simplified the situation by treating either the quarks or all particles as scalars. We discuss the scaling results for PWIA and FSI, and the approach to scaling using the analog of the Callan-Gross relation for y-scaling.

  9. $\\Delta$(1232) electroproduction amplitudes in chiral soliton models of the nucleon

    CERN Document Server

    Amoreira, L; Fiolhais, M; Amoreira, Luis; Alberto, Pedro; Fiolhais, Manuel

    2000-01-01

    The multipole amplitudes for the N - Delta electromagnetic transition are computed in the framework of the linear sigma model and the chiral chromodielectric model for small and moderate photon virtualities. The models include quark and meson degrees of freedom and the nucleon and the delta are clusters of three valence hedgehog quarks surrounded by meson clouds described by coherent states. Angular momentum and isospin projections are performed to endow model states representing the nucleon and the delta with proper quantum numbers. Recoil corrections involved in the process $\\gamma_{\\rm v} N \\to \\Delta$ are taken into account by performing linear momentum projection of the initial and final baryon states. The ratios $E2/M1$ and $C2/M1$ are in good agreement with the data in the two models, but the magnetic amplitude is better reproduced in the Linear Sigma Model. The ratios show little dependence with the model parameters. Both in the Linear Sigma Model and in the Chromodielectric Model the charged pions ar...

  10. Dibaryons with two strange quarks and total spin zero in a constituent quark model

    Science.gov (United States)

    Park, Woosung; Park, Aaron; Lee, Su Houng

    2016-04-01

    We investigate the symmetry property and construct the wave function of the dibaryon states containing two strange quarks with S =0 in both the flavor SU(3) symmetric and breaking cases. We discuss how the color ⊗ isospin ⊗ spin states of dibaryon in the symmetry broken case of flavor SU(3) can be extracted from the fully antisymmetric states in flavor SU(3). The stability of the dibaryon against the strong decay into two baryons is then discussed, by using the variational method within a constituent quark model with confining and color-spin interactions. To compare our results with those from lattice QCD in the flavor SU(3) limit, we search for the stable H-dibaryon in a wide range of π meson masses. We find that with the given potential, there is no compact six-quark dibaryon state in the SU(3) flavor symmetry broken case with realistic quark masses as well as in the flavor SU(3) symmetric case in a wide range of quark masses.

    We investigate the non-abelian $T$-duality of Wess-Zumino-Witten model. The obtained dual model is equivalent to the model dual to the $SU(2)$ chiral model found by Curtright-Zachos. This might tell that the Wess-Zumino term would be induced when the chiral model couples with gravity.

  12. Some aspects of pion physics in the Nambu- and Jona-Lasinio model and chiral Lagrangians

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    I discuss here to what extent the original two-flavour NJL model (which has a minimal number of adjustable parameters) reproduces pion observables. In particular, the sensitivity of the recently calculated electromagnetic mass shift to these NJL parameters is pointed out and a new way to fix them is suggested. A new set of O(1/Nc) diagrams, which are the first meson loop corrections to the RPA, is presented and its effect on the pionic Goldstone mode, its electromagnetic form factor, weak decay constant, and on the constituent quark mass m is discusseed. The relation of these NJL model results to some other chiral Lagrangians is pointed out, where ever possible. The here presented higher order diagrams indicate how one could systematically generate the next-order diagrams. It is, however, questionable whether the simplistic but mathematically manageable contact interaction of the NJL model should be maintained also in these higher order diagrams. (orig.)

    The quark sigma model describes the quarks interacting via exchange the pions and sigma meson fields. A new version of mesonic potential is suggested in the frame of some aspects of the quantum chromodynamics (QCD). The field equations have been solved in the mean-field approximation for the hedgehog baryon state. The obtained results are compared with previous works and other models. We conclude that the suggested mesonic potential successfully calculates nucleon properties.

  14. Bohm Confirmed by NonRelativistic Quark Model

    CERN Document Server

    Smith, F T

    1998-01-01

    The effectiveness of the NonRelativistic Quark Model of hadrons can be explained by Bohm's quantum theory applied to a fermion confined in a box, in which the fermion is at rest because its kinetic energy is transformed into PSI-field potential energy. Since that aspect of Bohm's quantum theory is not a property of most other formulations of quantum theory, the effectiveness of the NonRelativistic Quark Model confirms Bohm's quantum theory as opposed to those others.

    The hypercentral CQM, which is inspired by Lattice QCD calculations for quark-antiquark potentials, is presented, stressing its underlying symmetry. Its results for the spectrum, the helicity amplitudes and the elastic form factors are briefly reported. In the latter case the model has allowed to show, for the first time in the framework of a quark model, that relativistic effects are responsible for a deviation from the usually accepted dipole behaviour, in agreement with recent data taken at the Jefferson Lab.

  16. Minimal quantization of two-dimensional models with chiral anomalies

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Two-dimensional gauge models with chiral anomalies - ''left-handed'' QED and the chiral Schwinger model, are quantized consistently in the frames of the minimal quantization method. The choice of the cone time as a physical time for system of quantization is motivated. The well-known mass spectrum is found but with a fixed value of the regularization parameter a=2. Such a unique solution is obtained due to the strong requirement of consistency of the minimal quantization that reflects in the physically motivated choice of the time axis

    2016-05-01

    Full Text Available We consider a model where the standard model is extended by the addition of a vector-like isosinglet down-type quark b′. We perform a χ2 fit to the flavor physics data and obtain the preferred central values along with errors of all the elements of the measurable 3×4 quark mixing matrix. The fit indicates that all the new-physics parameters are consistent with zero and the mixing of the b′ quark with the other three is constrained to be small. The current flavor physics data rules out possibility of detectable new physics signals in most of the flavor physics observables. We also investigate possible deviations in the standard model Wtb couplings and bottom quark coupling to Higgs boson. We find that these deviations are less than a percent level which is too small to be observed at the LHC with current precision.

We perform a χ2 fit to the flavor physics data and obtain the preferred central values along with errors of all the elements of the measurable 3 × 4 quark mixing matrix. The fit indicates that all the new-physics parameters are consistent with zero and the mixing of the b‧ quark with the other three is constrained to be small. The current flavor physics data rules out possibility of detectable new physics signals in most of the flavor physics observables. We also investigate possible deviations in the standard model Wtb couplings and bottom quark coupling to Higgs boson. We find that these deviations are less than a percent level which is too small to be observed at the LHC with current precision.

  20. Stable hybrid stars within a SU(3) quark-meson-model

    The inner regions of the most massive compact stellar objects might be occupied by a phase of quarks. Since the observations of the massive pulsars PSR J1614-2230 and PSR J 0348 +0432 with about two solar masses, the equations of state constructing relativistic stellar models have to be constrained respecting these new limits. We discuss stable hybrid stars, i.e. compact objects with an outer layer composed of nuclear matter and with a core consisting of quark matter (QM). For the outer nuclear layer we utilize a density dependent nuclear equation of state and we use a chiral SU(3) quark-meson model with a vacuum energy pressure to describe the object's core. The appearance of a disconnected mass-radius branch emerging from the hybrid star branch implies the existence of a third family of compact stars, so-called twin stars. Twin stars did not emerge as the transition pressure has to be relatively small with a large jump in energy density, which could not be satisfied within our approach. This is, among other reasons, due to the fact that the speed of sound in QM has to be relatively high, which can be accomplished by an increase of the repulsive coupling. This increase on the other hand yields transition pressures that are too high for twins stars to appear.

  2. Light Adjoint Quarks in the Instanton-Dyon Liquid Model IV

    Liu, Yizhuang; Zahed, Ismail

    2016-01-01

    We discuss the instanton-dyon liquid model with $N_f$ Majorana quark flavors in the adjoint representation of color $SU_c(2)$ at finite temperature. We briefly recall the index theorem on $S^1\\times R^3$ for twisted adjoint fermions in a BPS dyon background of arbitrary holonomy, and use the ADHM construction to explicit the adjoint anti-periodic zero modes. We use these results to derive the partition function of an interacting instanton-dyon ensemble with $N_f$ light and anti-periodic adjoint quarks. We develop the model in details by mapping the theory on a 3-dimensional quantum effective theory with adjoint quarks with manifest $SU(N_f)\\times Z_{4N_f}$ symmetry. Using a mean-field analysis at weak coupling and strong screening, we show that center symmetry requires the spontaneous breaking of chiral symmetry, which is shown to only take place for $N_f=1$. For a sufficiently dense liquid, we find that the ground state is center symmetric and breaks spontaneously flavor symmetry through $SU(N_f)\\times Z_{4N...

  3. SU(6) model with heavy t-quark

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The representation assignments of fermions in a previous model are changed to make t-quark heavy. Together with this, the third generation (t,b,tau) as well as c-quark show some peculiar feature. For example, the left-handed component of the observed b-quark is a mixture of an SU(2) singlet with a component of a doublet, and meson (bsub(i).sup(c)dsub(i)) will decay through baryon number violating interactions of tau++psup(c).

  4. Deconfinement and Chiral Restoration in Hot and Dense Matter

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We propose a picture that the chiral phase transition at zero quark mass and the deconfinement transition at infinite quark mass are continuously connected. This gives a simple interpretation on the coincidence of the pseudo-critical temperatures observed in lattice QCD. We discuss a possible dynamical mechanism behind the simultaneous crossovers and show the results in a model study

  5. Negative-parity hyperons in the constituent quark model with meson-quark couplings

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Negative-parity hyperons are systematically studied by means of the constituent quark model which incorporates the effect of the meson-quark coupling. Some unresolved puzzles of these resonances are investigated; the mass splitting between Λ(1405) and Λ(1520) can be realized by the difference of their self-energies due to the mesonic effect, without losing the general success of the constituent quark model; the couplings of the so-called ''missing resonances'' to the meson-baryon states are shown to be suppressed owing to the spin-flavor symmetry of the quark wave functions of the resonances. Although only the resonance contribution is considered for the meson-baryon scattering, the calculated amplitudes have the energy dependence consistent with the phase-shift analyses of the data. To obtain more quantitative agreement, however, the improvement of the model will be necessary; for example, non-resonant contribution is required to explain the isovector KN amplitude at low energies.

  6. Two chiral preon models with SU(N) metacolor satisfying complementarity

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We have constructed two chiral preon models based on the group SU(N)/sub MC/ x SU(N+4)/sub F/ x U(1)/sub F/ (MC is gauged metacolor and F is global color flavor), the simplest (M = 0) version of a class of models SU(N)/sub MC/ x SU(N+M+4)/sub F/ x SU(M)/sub F/ x U(1)/sub F/ 2 studied by bars and Yankielowicz. In contrast with earlier work, our models satisfy the principle of complementarity between the Higgs and confining phases. In one model, N = 16 and four generations of ordinary quarks and leptons are found at the gauged SO(10) level. The second model predicts three quark-lepton families at the gauged SU(5) level without a right-handed neutrino. We also show that complementarity holds for the Mnot =0 models but that, for N = 15 or 16, the results at the gauged level are identical with the M = 0 case

  7. Stable $uuddbar s$ pentaquarks in the constituent quark model

    CERN Document Server

    Stancu, F; Stancu, Fl.

    2003-01-01

    The stability of strange pentaquarks $uuddbar s$ is studied in a constituent quark model based on a flavor-spin hyperfine interaction between quarks. With this interaction model, which schematically represents the Goldstone boson exchange interaction between constituent quarks, the lowest lying strange pentaquark is a $p-$shell state with positive parity. The flavor-spin interaction lowers the energy of the lowest $p-$shell state below that of the lowest $s-$shell state, which has negative parity because of the negative parity of the strange antiquark. It is found that the strange pentaquark is stable against strong decay provided that the strange antiquark interacts by a fairly strong spin-spin interaction with $u$ and $d$ quarks. This interaction has a form that corresponds to $eta$ meson exchange. Its strength may be inferred from the $pi^0$ decay width of $D_s^*$ mesons.

  8. Modelling hybrid stars in quark-hadron approaches

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The density in the core of neutron stars can reach values of about 5 to 10 times nuclear matter saturation density. It is, therefore, a natural assumption that hadrons may have dissolved into quarks under such conditions, forming a hybrid star. This star will have an outer region of hadronic matter and a core of quark matter or even a mixed state of hadrons and quarks. In order to investigate such phases, we discuss different model approaches that can be used in the study of compact stars as well as being applicable to a wider range of temperatures and densities. One major model ingredient, the role of quark interactions in the stability of massive hybrid stars is discussed. In this context, possible conflicts with lattice QCD simulations are investigated.

    CERN Document Server

    Smith, A L

    1999-01-01

    An effective field approximation, similar to the Thomas- Fermi model of an atom, is proposed for studying the thermodynamic properties of a heavy quark meson within a quark-gluon plasma. The approximation for the case of an SU(2) gauge theory with central monopole and dipole point charges is shown to be plagued with singularities. For the case of SU(3) with a central core, to which the quark is confined, an approximation is developed for a high density low temperature system. Thermodynamic quantities are calculated as functions of of environmental parameters and the heavy quark meson is shown to be unstable. Instability is shown to increase with increased density. QCD corrections to the model are expected to render the configuration stable for sufficiently low density and temperature.

  10. Super-hypernuclei in the quark-shell model

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A super-hypernucleus is a nucleus which consists of many strange quarks as well as up and down quarks. An important part of the results of our recent investigation on the mass spectrum and other properties of super-hypernuclei in the quark-shell model is reported. It is expected that not only certain exotic nuclei such as the 'dideltas' (Dδ++++ and Dδ----). but also certain super-hypernuclei such as the 'hexalambda' (Hλ) and the 'vigintiquattuoralambda' (Vqλ) may appear as quasi-stable nuclei. However, in the quark-shell model, there is no qualitative reason why the 'dihyperon' or 'H dibaryon' (H) should be quasi-stable or even stable. Many other predictions including a sudden increase of the K/π ratio due to the production of super-hypernuclei in heavy-ion collisions at high energies are also made. (author)

    Hobbs, T J; Miller, Gerald A

    2016-01-01

    ${\\bf Background}$ Knowledge of nucleon structure is today ever more of a precision science, with heightened theoretical and experimental activity expected in coming years. At the same time, a persistent gap lingers between theoretical approaches grounded in Euclidean methods (e.g., lattice QCD, Dyson-Schwinger Equations [DSEs]) as opposed to traditional Minkowski field theories (such as light-front constituent quark models). ${\\bf Purpose}$ Seeking to bridge these complementary worldviews, we explore the potential of a Euclidean constituent quark model (ECQM). This formalism enables us to study the gluonic dressing of the quark-level axial-vector vertex, which we undertake as a test of the framework. ${\\bf Method}$ To access its indispensable elements with a minimum of inessential detail, we develop our ECQM using the simplified quark $+$ scalar diquark picture of the nucleon. We construct a hyperspherical formalism involving polynomial expansions of diquark propagators to marry our ECQM with the results of ...

  13. On a hybrid non-relativistic quark model

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Further investigation, suggested by Navarro and Vento, is carried out for a non-relativistic hybrid quark model with extra pion degrees of freedom. An effective adiabatic approximation for the solution of the dynamical equations describing common dynamics of quarks and pions is studied. This technique allows us to construct two-body quark-quark potentials including the gluon and pion exchange process and confinement effects. In the framework of the Faddeev equations formalism, the three-body problem is solved, and in terms of the exact wave function the main static characteristic of nucleon and delta-isobar are calculated. We also analyze relative contributions of pion effects and relativistic corrections. On the basis of the exact solution of the three-body problem, the inadequacies of the model under discussion are pointed out. (orig.)

    2002-01-01

    The 3-phase version of the hybrid chiral bag model, containing the phase of asymptotic freedom, the hadronization phase as well as the intermediate phase of constituent quarks, is proposed. For this model the self-consistent solutions, which take into account the fermion vacuum polarization effects, are found in 1+1 D. The renormalized total energy of the bag is studied as a function of its geometry and topological (baryon) number. It is shown that in the case of non-zero topological charge there exists a set of configurations being the local minima of the total energy of the bag and containing all the three phases, while in the non-topological case the minimum of the total energy of the bag corresponds to vanishing size of the phase of asymptotic freedom.

  16. Chiral hybrid bag model with the boson field inside the bag

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The three-phase version of the hybrid chiral bag model, containing the phase of asymptotic freedom, the hadronization phase as well as the intermediate phase of constituent quarks, is proposed. For this model the self-consistent solution, which takes into account the fermion vacuum polarization effects, is found in (1+1) D. Within this solution the total energy of the bag, including the one-loop contribution from the Dirac's sea, is studied as the function of the bag geometry under condition of nonvanishing boson condensate density in the interior region. The existence and uniqueness of the ground state bag configuration, which minimizes the total energy and contains all the three phases, are shown. (author)

  17. The effective action approach applied to nuclear chiral sigma model

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The nuclear chiral sigma model of nuclear matter is considered by means of the Cornwall-Jackiw-tomboulis (CTJ) effective action. The method provides a very general framework for investigating many important problems: chiral symmetry in nuclear medium, energy density of nuclear ground state, nuclear Schwinger-Dyson (SD) equations, etc. It is shown that the SD equations for sigma-omega mixing are actually not present in this formalism. For numerical computation purposes the Hartree-Fock (HF) approximation for ground state energy density is also presented. (author). 26 refs

    2000-01-01

    We apply the quark delocalization and color screening model to nucleon-baryon scattering. A semi-quantitative fit to N-N, N-Lambda and N-Sigma phase shifts and scattering cross sections is obtained without invoking meson exchange. Quarks delocalize reasonably in all of the different flavor channels to induce effective nucleon-baryon interactions with both a repulsive core and with an intermediate range attraction in the cases expected.

    In the framework of the non relativistic quark model, an exhaustive study of radiative transitions in mesons is performed. The emphasis is put on several points. Some traditional approximations (long wave length limit, non relativistic phase space, dipole approximation for E1 transitions, gaussian wave functions) are analyzed in detail and their effects commented. A complete treatment using three different types of realistic quark-antiquark potential is made. The overall agreement with experi...

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We analyse the properties of the ground state baryons in the non-relativistic quark model. The three-body problem is solved by means of the hyperspherical expansion. We consider various two-body potentials of power law type and also a three-body linear potential. In displaying the results, we insist on quantities like ratios of splittings which are scale independent and are functions only of the power of the potential and of the ratio of quark masses

  1. Chiral U(1) flavor models and flavored Higgs doublets: the top FB asymmetry and the W jj

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Ko, P.; Omura, Yuji; Yu, Chaehyun

    2012-01-01

    We present U(1) flavor models for leptophobic Z' with flavor dependent couplings to the right-handed up-type quarks in the Standard Model (SM), which can accommodate the recent data on the top forward-backward (FB) asymmetry and the dijet resonance associated with a W boson reported by CDF Collaboration. Such flavor-dependent leptophobic charge assignments generally require extra chiral fermions for anomaly cancellation. Also the chiral nature of U(1)' flavor symmetry calls for new U(1)'-charged Higgs doublets in order for the SM fermions to have realistic renormalizable Yukawa couplings. The stringent constraints from the top FB asymmetry at the Tevatron and the same sign top pair production at the LHC can be evaded due to contributions of the extra Higgs doublets. We also show that the extension could realize cold dark matter candidates.

    The nucleon electromagnetic form factors are investigated within a simple diquark-quark model using the light-front formalism. In this model, baryon is described as a bound state of one quark and one clustering diquark.The calculational results are compared with the experimental ones. We also regard the quarks in a baryon as pointlike constituent quarks.

    We study nucleon structure functions within the bosonized Nambu--Jona--Lasinio model where the nucleon emerges as a chiral soliton. We discuss the model predictions on the Gottfried sum rule for electron--nucleon scattering. A comparison with a low--scale parametrization shows that the model reproduces the gross features of the empirical structure functions.

  8. Distinguishing the Right-Handed Up/Charm Quarks from Top Quark via Discrete Symmetries in the Standard Model Extensions

    CERN Document Server

    Huang, Chao-Shang; Wang, Xiao-Chuan; Wu, Xiao-Hong

    2013-01-01

    We propose a class of the two Higgs doublet Standard models (SMs) with a SM singlet and a class of supersymmetric SMs with two pairs of Higgs doublets, where the right-handed up/charm quarks and right-handed top quark have different quantum numbers under extra discrete symmetries. Thus, the right-handed up and charm quarks couple to one Higgs doublet field, while the right-handed top quark couples to another Higgs doublet. The quark CKM mixings can be generated from the down-type quark sector. As one of phenomenological consequences in our models, we explore whether one can accommodate the observed direct CP asymmetry difference in singly Cabibbo-suppressed D decays. We show that it is possible to explain the measured values of CP violation under relevant experimental constraints.

    We present a quark-diquark model for the nucleons where the light front wave functions are constructed from the soft-wall AdS/QCD prediction. The model is consistent with quark counting rule and Drell-Yan-West relation. The model reproduces the scale evolution of unpolarized PDF of proton for a wide range of energy scale. Helicity and transversity distributions for the proton predicted in this model agree with phenomenological fits. The axial and tensor charges are also shown to agree with the experimental data. The model can be used to evaluate distributions like GPDS, TMDs etc. and their scale evolutions.

    The relevance of chiral symmetry in baryons is highlighted in three examples in the nucleon spectroscopy and structure. The first one is the importance of chiral dynamics in understanding the Roper resonance. The second one is the role of chiral symmetry in the lattice calculation of $\\pi N \\sigma$ term and strangeness. The third one is the role of chiral $U(1)$ anomaly in the anomalous Ward identity in evaluating the quark spin and the quark orbital angular momentum. Finally, the chiral effective theory for baryons is discussed.

    2012-01-01

    We compute the hadronic matrix elements of the four-quark operators needed for the study of neutral kaon mixing beyond the Standard Model (SM). We use nf=2+1 flavours of domain-wall fermions (DWF) which exhibit good chiral-flavour symmetry. The renormalization is performed non-perturbatively through the RI-MOM scheme and our results are converted perturbatively to MSbar. The computation is performed on a single lattice spacing a=0.086 fm with a lightest unitary pion mass of 290 MeV. The various systematic errors, including the discretisation effects, are estimated and discussed. Our results confirm a previous quenched study, where large ratios of non-SM to SM matrix elements were obtained.

  13. An Anderson-like model of the QCD chiral transition

    Science.gov (United States)

    Giordano, Matteo; Kovács, Tamás G.; Pittler, Ferenc

    2016-06-01

    We study the problems of chiral symmetry breaking and eigenmode localisation in finite-temperature QCD by looking at the lattice Dirac operator as a random Hamiltonian. We recast the staggered Dirac operator into an unconventional three-dimensional Anderson Hamiltonian ("Dirac-Anderson Hamiltonian") carrying internal degrees of freedom, with disorder provided by the fluctuations of the gauge links. In this framework, we identify the features relevant to chiral symmetry restoration and localisation of the low-lying Dirac eigenmodes in the ordering of the local Polyakov lines, and in the related correlation between spatial links across time slices, thus tying the two phenomena to the deconfinement transition. We then build a toy model based on QCD and on the Dirac-Anderson approach, replacing the Polyakov lines with spin variables and simplifying the dynamics of the spatial gauge links, but preserving the above-mentioned relevant dynamical features. Our toy model successfully reproduces the main features of the QCD spectrum and of the Dirac eigenmodes concerning chiral symmetry breaking and localisation, both in the ordered (deconfined) and disordered (confined) phases. Moreover, it allows us to study separately the roles played in the two phenomena by the diagonal and the off-diagonal terms of the Dirac-Anderson Hamiltonian. Our results support our expectation that chiral symmetry restoration and localisation of the low modes are closely related, and that both are triggered by the deconfinement transition.

    2013-08-01

    Static spherically symmetric space-time is studied to describe dense compact star with quark matter within the framework of MIT Bag Model. The system of Einstein’s field equations for anisotropic matter is expressed as a new system of differential equations using transformations and it is solved for a particular general form of gravitational potential with parameters. For a particular parameter, as an example, it is shown that the model satisfies all major physical features expected in a realistic star. The generated model also smoothly matches with the Schwarzschild exterior metric at the boundary of the star. It is shown that the generated solutions are useful to model strange quark stars.

  15. Torons, chiral symmetry breaking and U(1) problem in σ-model and gauge theories. Part 2

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The main point of this work is the physical consenquences of the existence of fractional charge in the σ-models and espesially in the physically interesting theory QCD. It is shown that the corresponding fluctuations ensure spontaneous breaking of the chiral symmetry and give a nonzero contribution to the chiral condensate. Toron solution is determined on the manifold with boundary. In this case many questions arise such as: global boundary conditions, the stability of the solution, self-adjointness of Dirac operator, single-valuedness of the physical values and so on. These questions are interconnected and turn out to be self cobsistent only for the special choice of the topological number (Q=1/2 for SU(2)). It is shown that in the Dirac's spectrum of the quarks the gap between zero and the continuum is absent. 50 refs.; 10 figs

    Martens, G; Leupold, S; Mosel, U; Martens, Gunnar; Greiner, Carsten; Leupold, Stefan; Mosel, Ulrich

    2006-01-01

    We investigate 4-quark ($qq\\bar{q}\\bar{q}$) systems as well as multi-quark states with a large number of quarks and anti-quarks using the chromodielectric model. In the former type of systems the flux distribution and the corresponding energy of such systems for planar and non-planar geometries are studied. From the comparison to the case of two independent $q\\bar{q}$-strings we deduce the interaction potential between two strings. We find an attraction between strings and a characteristic string flip if there are two degenerate string combinations between the four particles. The interaction shows no strong Van-der-Waals forces and the long range behavior of the potential is well described by a Yukawa potential, which might be confirmed in future lattice calculations. The multi-quark states develop an inhomogeneous porous structure even for particle densities large compared to nuclear matter constituent quark densities. We present first results of the dependence of the system on the particle density pointing ...

  17. (3+1)-dimensional light-front model with spontaneous breaking of chiral symmetry

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We investigate a (3+1)-dimensional toy model that exhibits spontaneous breakdown of chiral symmetry, both in a light-front (LF) Hamiltonian and in a Euclidean Schwinger-Dyson (SD) formulation. We show that both formulations are completely equivalent, provided the renormalization is properly done. The counterterm can be constructed explicitly by eliminating zero-mode degrees of freedom, giving rise to to an effective interaction: i.e., zero-mode dynamics, in the sense of an effective action, leads to a very simple set of modifications for the nonzero modes. We find that it is sufficient to renormalize terms that exist already in the canonical LF Hamiltonian independently. Chiral symmetry breaking is manifested via a open-quotes kinetic massclose quotes counterterm, which is eventually responsible for the mass generation of the physical fermion of the model. The vertex mass in the LF calculation must be taken to be the same as the current quark mass in the SD calculation. copyright 1997 The American Physical Society

  1. Partial quenching and chiral symmetry breaking

    OpenAIRE

    Creutz, Michael

    2014-01-01

    Partially quenched chiral perturbation theory assumes that valence quarks propagating on gauge configurations prepared with sea quarks of different masses will form a chiral condensate as the valence quark mass goes to zero. I present a counterexample involving non-degenerate sea quarks where the valence condensate does not form.

  2. Vector-like bottom quarks in composite Higgs models

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Like many other models, Composite Higgs Models feature the existence of heavy vector-like quarks. Mixing effects between the Standard Model fields and the heavy states, which can be quite large in case of the top quark, imply deviations from the SM. In this work we investigate the possibility of heavy bottom partners. We show that they can have a significant impact on electroweak precision observables and the current Higgs results if there is a sizeable mixing with the bottom quark. We explicitly check that the constraints from the measurement of the CKM matrix element Vtb are fulfilled, and we test the compatibility with the electroweak precision observables. In particular we evaluate the constraint from the Z coupling to left-handed bottom quarks. General formulae have been derived which include the effects of new bottom partners in the loop corrections to this coupling and which can be applied to other models with similar particle content. Furthermore, the constraints from direct searches for heavy states at the LHC and from the Higgs search results have been included in our analysis. The best agreement with all the considered constraints is achieved for medium to large compositeness of the left-handed top and bottom quarks

  3. Quark sector CP violation of the universal seesaw model

    CERN Document Server

    Kawasaki, Ryomu; Umeeda, Hiroyuki

    2013-01-01

    We study the CP violation of universal seesaw model, especially its quark sector. The model is based on SU(2)_L \\times SU(2)_R \\times U(1)_{Y^\\prime}. In order to count the number of parameters in quark sector, we use the degree of freedom of weak basis transformation. For N(3)-generation model, the number of CP violating phase in quark sector is identified as 3N^2-3N+1 (19). We also construct nineteen CP violating weak basis invariants of Yukawa coupling matrices and SU(2) singlet quark mass matrices in the three-generation universal seesaw model. The quark interaction terms induced by neutral currents are given as an exact formula. Both of the charged current and the neutral current are expressed in terms of the mass basis by finding the transformations from weak basis to mass basis. Finally, we calculate the mixing matrix element approximately assuming that the SU(2)_R breaking scale v_R is much larger than the electro-weak breaking scale v_L.

  4. NN tensor and LS potentials in a quark model with quark-antiquark excitations

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A more detailed study is made of the NN interaction in a quark model in which the (qanti q) excitations inherent in the quark-gluon interaction are explicitly incorporated into the model space. A unified treatment for all types of exchange terms of the (3q)-(3q) to (3q)-(3q)(qanti q) coupling kernels is used to calculate the space parts of the full coupling kernels and their Wigner transforms in complete analytic form. The present investigation focuses on the noncentral parts of the NN interaction. The tensor force gains almost its full strength from coupling kernels of Nπ and Nrho type. If the Nsub(π) contribution is adjusted to fit the experimental pion-nucleon coupling constant the predicted strength of the full tensor force is in reasonable agreement with that of conventional OBEP's over the range in which the tensor force can act. The LS force gains contributions from both the pure (3q)-(3q) and the coupling kernels, but the dominant contributions (about 60-65% of the triplet-odd LS potential in the 0.7-1.0 fm range), come from the coupling kernels and particularly from the Nω and Nrho components. The triplet-odd LS potential derived from the full quark-exchange kernel is in remarkably good agreement with the OBEP LS potential over the significant range. Both the tensor and LS potentials are approximated surprisingly well over their full range by the simple (qanti q) exchange terms of our model. The 3P RGM phase shifts are calculated to show that both tensor and LS forces of our quark model are in good agreement with the experimental facts. (orig.)

  5. Chiral symmetry in hadron physics methods and ideas of chiral symmetry

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Methods and ideas of chiral symmetry is presented based on a lecture note to help the future researches in hadron dynamics along with the chiral symmetry. The chiral symmetry was originally developed as the symmetry between currents before the discovery of QCD. It has come to be understood in principle by now that the symmetry is spontaneously broken and only the part of flavor symmetry remains explicitly. In QCD, however, the chiral symmetry has come to be regarded as the base of the symmetry of the global flavor space of quarks. One of the recent topics of the lattice gauge theory is how the hadron properties will change when the broken symmetry is going to be restored. Since the chiral symmetry is global, it is different from gauge symmetry which is local. It explains the degeneracy of hadron masses and relations between the elements of S-matrix in which same number of particles are included. In practice, however, the symmetry of the axial part is spontaneously broken and pions which behave like gauge particles come to play. Chiral symmetry is defined as the (internal) flavor symmetry for the two independent chirality states of quarks. It discriminates two different fundamental quarks defined for the Lorentz groups O(4) - SL(2, C). The symmetry transformation itself is, however, different from the chirality. They should not be confused. In this lecture note, fundamental properties of pions are described on the basis of the interaction with nucleons at first. General properties of the chiral symmetry and some of the low energy theorems on current algebra are introduced. Then, linear sigma model and nonlinear sigma model are introduced. Then the Skyrme-model, which provides an idea as important as quarks, is explained. One of the interesting topics at present is to restore the broken axial symmetry experimentally to investigate the mechanism of symmetry breaking. (S. Funahashi)

    At the low energy, {\\sl hadronic}, scale we calculate Orbital Angular Momentum (OAM) twist-two parton distributions for the relativistic MIT bag model and for non-relativistic quark models. We reach the scale of the data by leading order evolution in perturbative QCD. We confirm that the contribution of quarks and gluons OAM to the nucleon spin grows with $Q^2$, and it can be relevant at the experimental scale, even if it is negligible at the hadronic scale, irrespective of the model used.

    CERN Document Server

    Sarti, Valentina Mantovani; Vento, Vicente; Park, Byung-Yoon

    2012-01-01

    We study the interaction between two B = 1 states in a Chiral Soliton Model where baryons are described as non-topological solitons. By using the hedgehog solution for the B = 1 states we construct three possible B = 2 configurations to analyze the role of the relative orientation of the hedgehog quills in the dynamics. The strong dependence of the intersoliton interaction on these relative orientations reveals that studies of dense hadronic matter using this model should take into account their implications.

  8. BFFT formalism applied to the minimal chiral Schwinger model

    Natividade, C P; Belvedere, L V

    2000-01-01

    The minimal chiral Schwinger model is discussed from the Batalin-Fradkin-Fradkina-Tyutin point of view. The conversion of second-class constraints to first-class ones results in an extended gauge-invariant theory which is equivalent for $a=2$ to the vector Schwinger model at the Lagrangian level. Here, we present arguments which show that such equivalence does no exist at the operatorial level.

  9. Sensitivity to properties of the phi-meson in the nucleon structure in the chiral soliton model

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    1994-04-01

    The influence of the {phi}-meson on the nucleon properties in the chiral soliton model is discussed. Properties of the {phi}-meson and its photo- and electroproduction are of fundamental interest to CEBAF and its possible future extension. The quark model assigns {phi} an s{bar s} structure, thus forbidding the radiative decay {phi}{yields}{pi}{sup 0}{gamma}. Experimentally it is also found to be suppressed, yielding a branching fraction of 1.3{times}10{sup {minus}3}. However, {phi}{yields}{rho}{pi} and {phi}{yields}{pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup {minus}}{pi}{sup 0} are not suppressed at all. Thus, it is possible to incorporate the widths of these decays into the framework of the chiral soliton model, by making use of a specific model for the compliance with OZI rule. Such a model is for example, the {omega}-{phi} mixing model. Consequence of this in the context of a chiral soliton model, which builds on the {pi}{rho}{omega}a{sub 1}(f{sub 1}) meson effective Lagrangian, is the context of this report.

  10. Glueball-Quarkonium Mixing in the Quark and Chromon Model

    CERN Document Server

    Zhang, Pengming; Xie, Ju-Jun; Yoon, J H; Cho, Y M

    2016-01-01

    The Abelian decomposition of QCD which decomposes the gluons to the color neutral binding gluons (the neurons) and the colored valence gluons (the chromons) gauge independently naturally generalizes the quark model to the quark and chromon model which can play the central role in hadron spectroscopy. We discuss how the quark and chromon model describes the glueballs and the glueball-quarkonium mixing in QCD. We present the numerical analysis of glueball-quarkonium mixing in $0^{++}$, $2^{++}$, and $0^{-+}$ sectors below 2 GeV, and show that in the $0^{++}$ sector $f_0(500)$ and $f_0(1500)$, in the $2^{++}$ sector $f_2(1950)$, and in the $0^{-+}$ sector $\\eta(1405)$ and $\\eta(1475)$ could be identified as predominantly the glueball states. We discuss the physical implications of our result.

  11. Opportunities for collective model and chirality studies at TRIUMF

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    First predictions for a specific case of the particle-hole-core coupling model which takes advantage of symmetries of a triaxial rotor with γ = 90° are reviewed. Results of the model calculations point towards existence of stable chiral geometry in specific configurations involving high-j orbitals. Next, experimental information on doublet bands built on unique parity, πh11/2νh11/2 intruder states in odd-odd 134Pr is discussed; in particular observed disagreements between electromagnetic transitions within the doublet structures which is pointed out as inconsistent with the simplest models. Finally, the unique experimental infrastructure developed at the Tri-University Meson Facility (TRIUMF) Canada's National Laboratory for Particle and Nuclear Physics is presented including a range of isotopes in the mass 130 region that are accessible as beams and which can possibly yield significant new information in investigations of nuclear chirality.

  12. Chiral symmetry breaking in lattice QED model with fermion brane

    CERN Document Server

    Shintani, E

    2012-01-01

    We propose a novel approach of spontaneous chiral symmetry breaking at near zero temperature in 4 dimensional QED model with 3+1 dimensional fermion brane using Hybrid Monte Carlo simulation. We consider an anisotropic QED coupling in non-compact QED action with the manifest gauge invariant interaction and fermi-velocity which is less than speed of light. This model allows for the scaling study at low temperature and strong coupling region with reduced computational cost. We compute the chiral condensate and its susceptibility with different coupling constant, velocity parameter and flavor number, and therefore obtain a compatible behavior with gap equation in broken phase. We also discuss about the comparison of Graphene model.

  13. The phi-meson and Chiral-mass-meson production in heavy-ion collisions as potential probes of quark-gluon-plasma and Chiral symmetry transitions

    Takahashi, Y.; Eby, P. B.

    1985-01-01

    Possibilities of observing abundances of phi mesons and narrow hadronic pairs, as results of QGP and Chiral transitions, are considered for nucleus-nucleus interactions. Kinematical requirements in forming close pairs are satisfied in K+K decays of S(975) and delta (980) mesons with small phi, and phi (91020) mesons with large PT, and in pi-pi decays of familiar resonance mesons only in a partially restored chiral symmetry. Gluon-gluon dominance in QGP can enhance phi meson production. High hadronization rates of primordial resonance mesons which form narrow hadronic pairs are not implausible. Past cosmic ray evidences of anomalous phi production and narrow pair abundances are considered.

    Herold, Christoph; Nahrgang, Marlene; Yan, Yupeng; Kobdaj, Chinorat

    2015-04-01

    The region of large net-baryon densities in the QCD phase diagram is expected to exhibit a first-order phase transition. Experimentally, its study will be one of the primary objectives for the upcoming FAIR accelerator. We model the transition between quarks and hadrons in a heavy-ion collision using a fluid which is coupled to the explicit dynamics of the chiral order parameter and a dilaton field. This allows us to investigate signals stemming from the nonequilibrium evolution during the expansion of the hot plasma. Special emphasis is put on an event-by-event analysis of baryon number fluctuations which have long since been claimed to be sensitive to a critical point.

  15. Quark-Model Predictions for Axial Charges of Nucleon and N* Resonances

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Wagenbrunn R.F.

    2010-04-01

    Full Text Available We have investigated the axial charges of the nucleon and N* resonances in a relativistic framework. Besides the axial charge of the nucleon, first predictions are reported for the axial charges of all well-established N* resonances below ∼1.9 GeV as produced by the relativistic constituent quark models relying on Goldstoneboson-exchange and one-gluon-exchange hyperfine interactions. The results for the axial charge of the nucleon are found close to experiment but with somewhat smaller values, similar to modern findings from quantum chromodynamics on the lattice. The predictions of the axial charges of the negative-parity N* (1535 and N*(1650 resonances also agree with what has most recently become available from lattice calculations. We discuss the roles of the axial charges of the N* resonances for the phenomenon of chiral-symmetry restoration possibly occurring in the higher hadron spectra.

  16. Quark-Antiquark Condensates in the Hadronic Phase

    CERN Document Server

    Tawfik, A

    2005-01-01

    We use a hadron resonance gas model to calculate the quark-antiquark condensates for light (up and down) and strange quark flavors at finite temperatures and chemical potentials. At zero chemical potentials, we find that at the temperature where the light quark-antiquark condensates entirely vanish the strange quark-antiquark condensate still keeps a relatively large fraction of its value in the vacuum. This is in agreement with results obtained in lattice simulations and in chiral perturbation theory at finite temperature and zero chemical potentials. Furthermore, we find that this effect slowly disappears at larger baryon chemical potential. These results might have significant consequences for our understanding of QCD at finite temperatures and chemical potentials. Concretely, our results imply that there might be a domain of temperatures where chiral symmetry is restored for light quarks, but still broken for strange quark that persists at small chemical potentials. This might have practical consequences ...

    We have calculated the temperature dependence of shear η and bulk ζ viscosities of quark matter due to quark-meson fluctuations. The quark thermal width originating from quantum fluctuations of quark-π and quark-σ loops at finite temperature is calculated with the formalism of real-time thermal field theory. Temperature-dependent constituent-quark and meson masses and quark-meson couplings are obtained in the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model. We found a nontrivial influence of the temperature-dependent masses and couplings on the Landau-cut structure of the quark self-energy. Our results for the ratios η /s and ζ /s , where s is the entropy density (also determined in the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model in the quasiparticle approximation), are in fair agreement with results of the literature obtained from different models and techniques. In particular, our result for η /s has a minimum very close to the quantum lower bound, η /s =1 /4 π .

    2013-01-01

    We investigate simplified models in which dark matter particles, taken to be either Dirac or Majorana fermions, couple to quarks via colored mediators. We determine bounds from colliders and direct detection experiments, and show how the interplay of the two leads to a complementary view of this class of dark matter models. Forecasts for future searches in light of the current constraints are presented.

    Orbital Angular Momentum (OAM) twist-two parton distributions are studied. At the low energy, hadronic, scale we calculate them for the relativistic MIT bag model and for non-relativistic potential quark models. We reach the scale of the data by leading order evolution using the OPE and perturbative QCD. We confirm that the contribution of quarks and gluons OAM to the nucleon spin grows with $Q^2$, and it can be relevant at the experimental scale, even if it is negligible at the hadronic scal...

  3. Generation labels in composite models for quarks and leptons

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Models in which quarks and leptons are approximately massless composites of fundamental massless fermions which are confined by a hypercolor force are considered. The fundamental Lagrangian exhibits an axial U(1)sub(X) symmetry which is broken by hypercolor instantons, leaving a conserved discrete subgroup. It is proposed that the distinction between different generations of quarks and leptons is given by the X-number. The resulting generation labelling scheme does not lead to massless Goldstone bosons or to new anomalies and is based on a quantum number which is already contained in the theory. The dynamical rishon model is described as an illustrative example. (H.K.)

  4. Quark model calculation of charmed baryon production by neutrinos

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    We study the neutrino production of 25 low-lying charmed baryon resonances in the four flavour quark model. The mass difference of ordinary and charmed quarks is explicitly taken into account. The quark model is used to determine the spectrum of the charmed baryon resonances and the q2 = 0 values of the weak current transition matrix elements. These transition matrix elements are then continued to space-like q2-values by a generalized meson dominance ansatz for a set of suitably chosen invariant form factors. We find that the production of the L = 0 states C0, C1 and C1* is dominant, with the C0 produced most copiously. For L = 1, 2 the Jsup(P) = 3/2- 5/2+ charm states are dominant. We give differential cross sections, total cross sections and energy integrated total cross sections using experimental neutrino fluxes. (orig./BJ)

  5. Microscopically constrained mean-field models from chiral nuclear thermodynamics

    Science.gov (United States)

    Rrapaj, Ermal; Roggero, Alessandro; Holt, Jeremy W.

    2016-06-01

    We explore the use of mean-field models to approximate microscopic nuclear equations of state derived from chiral effective field theory across the densities and temperatures relevant for simulating astrophysical phenomena such as core-collapse supernovae and binary neutron star mergers. We consider both relativistic mean-field theory with scalar and vector meson exchange as well as energy density functionals based on Skyrme phenomenology and compare to thermodynamic equations of state derived from chiral two- and three-nucleon forces in many-body perturbation theory. Quantum Monte Carlo simulations of symmetric nuclear matter and pure neutron matter are used to determine the density regimes in which perturbation theory with chiral nuclear forces is valid. Within the theoretical uncertainties associated with the many-body methods, we find that select mean-field models describe well microscopic nuclear thermodynamics. As an additional consistency requirement, we study as well the single-particle properties of nucleons in a hot/dense environment, which affect e.g., charged-current weak reactions in neutron-rich matter. The identified mean-field models can be used across a larger range of densities and temperatures in astrophysical simulations than more computationally expensive microscopic models.

  6. An Anderson-like model of the QCD chiral transition

    CERN Document Server

    Giordano, Matteo; Pittler, Ferenc

    2016-01-01

    We study the problems of chiral symmetry breaking and eigenmode localisation in finite-temperature QCD by looking at the lattice Dirac operator as a random Hamiltonian. We recast the staggered Dirac operator into an unconventional three-dimensional Anderson Hamiltonian ("Dirac-Anderson Hamiltonian") carrying internal degrees of freedom, with disorder provided by the fluctuations of the gauge links. In this framework, we identify the features relevant to chiral symmetry restoration and localisation of the low-lying Dirac eigenmodes in the ordering of the local Polyakov lines, and in the related correlation between spatial links across time slices, thus tying the two phenomena to the deconfinement transition. We then build a toy model based on QCD and on the Dirac-Anderson approach, replacing the Polyakov lines with spin variables and simplifying the dynamics of the spatial gauge links, but preserving the above-mentioned relevant dynamical features. Our toy model successfully reproduces the main features of the...

Within the confined-isospin-density-dependent-mass (CIDDM) model, we study the quark matter symmetry energy, the stability of strange quark matter, and the properties of quark stars.

    We study nucleon structure functions within the bosonized Nambu--Jona--Lasinio model where the nucleon emerges as a chiral soliton. We discuss the model predictions on the Gottfried sum rule for electron--nucleon scattering. A comparison with a low--scale parametrization shows that the model reproduces the gross features of the empirical structure functions. We also compute the leading twist contributions of the polarized structure functions $g_{1}(x)$ and $g_{2}(x)$ in this model. We compare the model predictions on these structure functions with data from the E143 experiment by GLAP evolving them appropriately.

The model is thermodynamically consistent provided the medium dependent contribution to the energy density is taken in to account. We establish the connection of our model with other variants of quasiparticle models which are thermodynamically consistent. We test the model by comparing the equation of state with the lattice gauge theory simulations of SU(3) pure gluodynamics .

    2015-05-21

    A minimal model is exactly solved for electron spin transport on a helix. Electron transport is assumed to be supported by well oriented p{sub z} type orbitals on base molecules forming a staircase of definite chirality. In a tight binding interpretation, the spin-orbit coupling (SOC) opens up an effective π{sub z} − π{sub z} coupling via interbase p{sub x,y} − p{sub z} hopping, introducing spin coupled transport. The resulting continuum model spectrum shows two Kramers doublet transport channels with a gap proportional to the SOC. Each doubly degenerate channel satisfies time reversal symmetry; nevertheless, a bias chooses a transport direction and thus selects for spin orientation. The model predicts (i) which spin orientation is selected depending on chirality and bias, (ii) changes in spin preference as a function of input Fermi level and (iii) back-scattering suppression protected by the SO gap. We compute the spin current with a definite helicity and find it to be proportional to the torsion of the chiral structure and the non-adiabatic Aharonov-Anandan phase. To describe room temperature transport, we assume that the total transmission is the result of a product of coherent steps.

    2013-01-01

    Most of the traditional Technicolor-based models are known to be in a strong tension with the electroweak precision data. We show that this serious issue is naturally cured in strongly coupled sectors with chiral-symmetric vector-like gauge interactions in the framework of gauged linear sigma model. We discuss possible phenomenological implications of such non-standard chiral-symmetric Technicolor scenario in its simplest formulation preserving the standard Higgs mechanism and (possibly) elementary Higgs boson of the Standard Model (SM). For this purpose, we assume the existence of an extra technifermion sector confined under extra SU(3)_TC at the energy scales reachable at the LHC, Lambda_TC ~ 0.1-1 TeV, and interacting with the SM gauge bosons in a chiral-symmetric (vector-like) way. In the framework of this scenario, the SM Higgs vev acquires natural interpretation in terms of the condensate of technifermions in confinement. We study the influence of the lowest lying composite physical states, namely, tech...

  12. Top Forward-backward asymmetry at the Tevatron vs. Charge asymmetry at the LHC in chiral $U(1)'$ models with flavored Higgs fields

    CERN Document Server

    Ko, P; Yu, Chaehyun

    2013-01-01

    An extra $U(1)'$ model with $Z'$ coupled only to the right-handed (RH) up-type quarks has been one of the popular models for the Tevatron top forward-backward asymmetry (FBA), and has been excluded by the same-sign top-pair productions at the LHC. However, the original $Z'$ model is not physical, since the up-type quarks are massless including the top quark. This disaster can be evaded if the Higgs sector is extended by including new Higgs doublets with nonzero $U(1)'$ charges. We find that some parameter regions could achieve not only the top FBA at the Tevatron, but also the charge asymmetry at the LHC without exceeding the upper limit of the same-sign top-quark pair production at the LHC. The lesson is that it is mandatory to extend the Higgs sector whenever one considers chiral gauge symmetries beyond the SM gauge group. Otherwise some fermions remain massless, and thus it is meaningless to work on phenomenology without the extra Higgs doublets with new chiral gauge charges.

  13. Pionic decays and saturation of current-algebra sum rules in a nonrelativistic expansion of the quark shell model

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Pionic decays of hadrons are calculated using a PCAC (partial conservation of axial-vector current) prescription and a quark shell model with quarks bound by a central potential, described by the Dirac equation. The Dirac Hamiltonian and operators are expanded in v/c, the internal quark velocity. Then, one finds an exact saturation of the current-algebra sum rules as defined in the SU(2)xSU(2) symmetry of Gilman-Harari and Weinberg up to order v4/c4. The saturation is obtained without need of exotics, with the usual excitations of the ground state. The relation with the P = infinity approach is clarified. The corrections found with respect to previous quark models in L = 2 decays are discussed. They do not solve the problem of SU(6)/sub W/ coupling signs. Finally, the whole Weinberg scheme of linear SU(2)xSU(2) symmetry is completed by the expression of the chiral-breaking part of the mass operator m4/sup ts2/

    We study nuclear symmetry energy and the thermodynamic instabilities of asymmetric nuclear matter in a self-consistent manner by using a modified quark-meson coupling model where the confining interaction for quarks inside a nucleon is represented by a phenomenologically averaged potential in an equally mixed scalar-vector harmonic form. The nucleon-nucleon interaction in nuclear matter is then realized by introducing additional quark couplings to $\\sigma$, $\\omega$, and $\\rho$ mesons through mean-field approximations. We find an analytic expression for the symmetry energy ${\\cal E}_{sym}$ as a function of its slope $L$. Our result establishes a linear correlation between $L$ and ${\\cal E}_{sym}$. We also analyze the constraint on neutron star radii in $(pn)$ matter with $\\beta$ equilibrium.

    We investigate the effect of meson loops on the spectrum of quark states. We demonstrate that in general quark states do not tend to get very broad if their coupling to the continuum increases, but instead they decouple from the latter in the large coupling limit. We ascribe this effect to the essentially nonperturbative unitarization procedure involved. In the meantime, some quark resonances behave very differently and demonstrate collectivity in the sense that their pole trajectories span a wide, as compared to the level spacing, region therefore acquiring contributions from multiple bare poles rather than from the closest neighbours. While the actual calculations are done within particular, very simplified models, it is argued that the findings might well be general.

  16. Holographic Model of Dual Superconductor for Quark Confinement

    We show that a hairy black hole solution can provide a holographically dual description of quark confinement. There exists a one-parameter sensible metric which receives the backreaction of matter contents in the holographic action, where the scalar and gauge field are responsible for the condensation of chromomagnetic monopoles. This model features a preconfining phase triggered by second-order monopole condensation and a first-order confinement/deconfinement phase transition. To confirm the confinement, the quark-antiquark potential is calculated by probing a QCD string in both phases. At last, contribution from Kaluza-Klein monopoles in the confining phase is discussed.

    A way of counting free parameters in the quark mass matrices of the standard model, including the constraints coming from weak basis transformations, is presented; this allows one to understand the exact physical meaning of the parallel and non-parallel texture zeros which appear in some ''ansaetze'' of the 3 x 3 quark mass matrices, including the CP violation phenomena in the analysis; it is shown why the six texture zeros are ruled out. Finally, a five texture zeros ''ansatz'' which properly copes with all experimental constrains, including the angles of the unitary triangle, is presented. (orig.)

  18. Thomas-Fermi Statistical Models of Finite Quark Matter

    I introduce and discuss models of finite quark matter using the formalism of the Thomas-Fermi statistical model. Similar to bag models, a vacuum energy term is introduced to model long distance confinement, but the model produces bound states from the residual color Coulomb attraction even in the absence of such a term. I discuss three baryonic applications: an equal mass nonrelativistic model with and without volume pressure, the ultra-relativistic limit confined by volume pressure, and a color-flavor locking massless model. These model may be extended to multi-meson and other mixed hadronic states. Hopefully, it can help lead to a better understanding of the phenomenology of high multi-quark states in preparation for more detailed lattice QCD calculations.

  19. Phase diagram and nucleation in the Polyakov-loop-extended Quark-Meson truncation of QCD with the unquenched Polyakov-loop potential

    Unquenching of the Polyakov-loop potential showed to be an important improvement for the description of the phase structure and thermodynamics of strongly-interacting matter at zero quark chemical potentials with Polyakov-loop extended chiral models. This work constitutes the first application of the quark backreaction on the Polyakov-loop potential at nonzero density. The observation is that it links the chiral and deconfinement phase transition also at small temperatures and large quark che...

    A self consistent scheme for constructing K^- nuclear optical potentials from subthreshold in-medium Kbar-N s-wave scattering amplitudes is presented and applied to analysis of kaonic atoms data and to calculations of K^- quasibound nuclear states. The amplitudes are taken from a chirally motivated meson-baryon coupled-channel model, both at the Tomozawa-Weinberg leading order and at the next to leading order. Typical kaonic atoms potentials are characterized by a real part -Re V(K^-;chiral)=(85+/-5) MeV at nuclear matter density, in contrast to half this depth obtained in some derivations based on in-medium Kbar-N threshold amplitudes. The moderate agreement with data is much improved by adding complex rho- and rho^2-dependent phenomenological terms, found to be dominated by rho^2 contributions that could represent Kbar-NN -> YN absorption and dispersion, outside the scope of meson-baryon chiral models. Depths of the real potentials are then near 180 MeV. The effects of p-wave interactions are studied and fo...
