By Philipp Gubler

The writer develops a unique research approach for QCD sum ideas (QCDSR) by means of utilizing the utmost entropy procedure (MEM) to reach at an research with much less synthetic assumptions than formerly held. it is a first-time accomplishment within the box. during this thesis, a reformed MEM for QCDSR is formalized and is utilized to the sum principles of a number of channels: the light-quark meson within the vector channel, the light-quark baryon channel with spin and isospin 0.5, and a number of other quarkonium channels at either 0 and finite temperatures. This novel means of combining QCDSR with MEM is utilized to the learn of quarkonium in scorching topic, that's a massive probe of the quark-gluon plasma at present being created in heavy-ion collision experiments at RHIC and LHC.

Sample text

As was pointed out in Kondo et al. (2006), it is not entirely clear whether this prescription is justifiable. Therefore, in this study, we implement two essential improvements as compared to Jido et al. (1996): (1) We do not use the time ordered correlator, but derive all results directly from the “old fashioned” correlator of Eq. 53). (2) We do not restrict the region of integration of the OPE side of Eq. 60) to positive values and therefore remove the ambiguities that might occur for higher order OPE terms.

For a more detailed discussion of this issue, see Chap. 6 of Yagi et al. (2005). Finally, let us consider more realistic cases, which lie close to the physical point, indicated by the black dot in Fig. 3. Even though still challenging due to the light u and d quark masses, lattice simulations are now at the stage of becoming possible in 22 2 Basic Properties of QCD such a regime. Most of these simulations employ the staggered fermions (Susskind 1977; Sharatchandra et al. 1981), while some also use the Wilson fermion formalism (Wilson 1975).

3. Even though still challenging due to the light u and d quark masses, lattice simulations are now at the stage of becoming possible in 22 2 Basic Properties of QCD such a regime. Most of these simulations employ the staggered fermions (Susskind 1977; Sharatchandra et al. 1981), while some also use the Wilson fermion formalism (Wilson 1975). Recent results of such studies suggest that the transition at the physical point is smooth crossover (Aoki et al. 2006). Furthermore, the value of the critical temperature has been evaluated by various groups, the latest results giving an averaged value of roughly 170 MeV, with a scatter of about 20 MeV (Aoki et al.
