Description

The dispersion relation of the pion quasiparticle is calculated in the confined phase of QCD with two light flavors of quarks using lattice simulations. In the hadron gas, the would-be diffusion pole of the axial charge density and the Goldstone boson of chiral symmetry breaking "mix"; as a result, a single light quasiparticle emerges whose dispersion relation can be determined from equilibrium quantities (D.T. Son and M. Stephanov, Phys. Rev. D66 (2002) 076011). Results are presented for temperatures between $0.7T_c$ and $T_c$.
