We present a first-principles study of anomaly induced transport phenomena by performing real- time lattice simulations with dynamical fermions coupled simultaneously to non-Abelian SU(Nc) and Abelian U(1) gauge fields. We investigate the behavior of vector and axial currents

during a sphaleron transition in the presence of an external magnetic field, and demonstrate how the interplay of the...

Model parameter free investigations of Yang-Mills theory and quenched QCD in the vacuum are presented as a necessary prerequisitve for corresponding investigations of the QCD phase structure with the functional renormalisation group equation. Preliminary results for Yang-Mills theory at finite temperature are discussed. Finally, a phenomenological application of the vacuum results to the...

We calculate the potential between static quarks in the fundamental representation of the F4 exceptional gauge group using domain structures of the thick center vortex model. As non-trivial center elements are absent, the asymptotic string tension is lost while an intermediate linear potential is observed. SU(3) is a subgroup of F4. Investigating the decomposition of the 26 dimensional...

Electromagnetic processes are known to be a good source of information on the meson inner structure. Analysis of these processes turned out to be particularly fruitful in case of scalar mesons which emerge eg. in the phi(1020) radiative decays in both \pi\pi and \pi\eta channels.

Photoproduction of isoscalar and isovector scalar resonances can be treated as a complementary source of...

We report on the coupling of an external $t\bar t$ state to a strongly interacting EWSBS. We exploit perturbation theory in the small $M_t/\sqrt{s}$ quantity, whereas the EWSBS is taken as strongly interacting. We use a modified version of the IAM unitarization procedure to model such a strongly interacting regime. The scattering matrix elements $V_L V_L \to V_L V_L$, $V_L V_L \to hh$, $hh\to...

We present novel method for the organisation of events. The method is based on comparing event-by-event histograms of a chosen quantity $Q$ that is measured for each particle in every event. The events are organised in such a way that those with similar shape of the $Q$-histograms end-up placed close to each other.

We apply the method on histograms of azimuthal angle of the produced hadrons...

We derive three exact sum rules for the spectral function of the electromagnetic current channel at finite temperature, by using operator product expansion and hydrodynamics, focusing on zero spatial momentum case. We also discuss the possibility to use these sum rules to constrain and improve the functional form of the spectral function assumed in the lattice QCD analysis, and to evaluate the...

Minijets and jets are produced in large numbers in nuclear collisions at TeV energies, so that there are many of them in a single fireball. They deposit non-negligible amount of momentum and energy into the hydrodynamically expanding bulk and cause anisotropies of the expansion. Moreover, due to their multiple production in a single event the resulting anisotropies are correlated with the...

Within QCD, the light pseudoscalar mesons assume a twofold role: they may be described as quark–antiquark bound states but also have to be interpreted as the (almost) massless (pseudo) Goldstone bosons of the spontaneously broken chiral symmetries of QCD. The application of suitably adapted inversion techniques enables us to construct exact bound-state solutions to the Bethe–Salpeter equation...

We investigate the H-dibaryon (uuddss) in holographic QCD [1, 2].

Holographic QCD is derived from a QCD-equivalent D-brane system

in the superstring theory via the gauge/gravity correspondence.

In holographic QCD, all baryons appear as topological chiral solitons

of Nambu-Goldstone bosons and (axial) vector mesons [1, 2].

In this framework, the H-dibaryon can be described as an...

Holographic QCD is based on the AdS/CFT duality and offers new nonperturbative approaches to understand the strongly interacting regime of gauge theories. One of the primary questions in Quantum Chromodynamics is the clarification of the whole phase diagram of matter out of quarks and gluons as a function of temperature, baryon or quark chemical potential, and other external parameters.

We...

Based on the new fit of hadron yield ratios within the multicomponent hadron resonance gas model we have found several remarkable irregularities at chemical freeze-out. In particular, 121 hadron multiplicity ratios measured in the nucleus-nucleus collisions at AGS, SPS and RHIC energies were successfully described within the new formulation of HRGM with $\chi^2/dof \simeq 63.978/65 \simeq...

The magnetic susceptibility of the QCD vacuum is analyzed in the framework of a nonlocal

SU(3) Polyakov-Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model. We estimate the values of the u and s-quark tensor coefficients and magnetic susceptibilities and then we extend the analysis to finite temperature systems, comparing numerical results to those obtained in other theoretical approaches and in lattice QCD calculations.

The ATLAS reconstruction algorithm, in Run-II, has been improved and extended compared to the one used in Run-I. In this presentation, we will discuss the precise measurement of the muon reconstruction efficiency measured in pp collisions at sqrt(s)= 13 TeV in 2015 and 2016 using samples of J/ψ→μμ and Z→μμ decays. The reconstruction efficiency, transverse momentum resolution and momentum...

The lateral distribution of an atmospheric shower depends on the characteristics of the high energy interactions and the type of the primary particle. The influence of the primary particle in the secondary development of the shower into the atmosphere, is studied by analyzing the lateral distribution of electron and muon showers having as primary particle, proton, photon or iron nucleus.

A recently developed extension of the Nambu--Jona-Lasinio model includes all the explicit chiral symmetry breaking interactions which contribute

at the same order in the large 1/Nc counting as the UA(1) ’t Hooft flavor determinant [1]. In addition to the usual 4, 6, 8 fermion vertices this

generalization includes the relevant interaction terms proportional to the current quark masses. It...

A Large Ion Collider Experiment (ALICE) was designed for the study of the strongly interacting medium created in heavy-ion collisions at LHC energies, the Quark-Gluon Plasma. Heavy quarks (charm and beauty) are very powerful probes to study this state of matter, since they are produced in the early stages of heavy-ion collisions and they traverse the QCD medium interacting with its...

We study here the interaction of DDbar* in the isospin I=1 channel in light of recent theoretical advances that allow us to combine elements of the local hidden gauge approach with heavy quark spin symmetry. We find that the exchange of light qqbar is Okubo-Zweig-Iizuka (OZI) suppressed and thus we concentrate on the exchange of heavy vectors and of two pion exchange. The latter is found to be...

We analyse the second-class current decays $\tau^{-}\to\pi^{-}\eta^{(\prime)}\nu_{\tau}$

in the framework of Chiral Perturbation Theory with Resonances.

Taking into account $\pi^{0}$-$\eta$-$\eta^{\prime}$ mixing,

the $\pi^{-}\eta^{(\prime)}$ vector form factor is extracted, in a model-independent way,

using existing data on the $\pi^{-}\pi^{0}$ one.

For the participant scalar form factor,

we...

Summary

Within a relativistic dispersion approach based on the constituent-quark model, we extract the strong couplings of three mesons among which there is, at least, one charmonium from the residues of resonance poles in adequate transition form factors for timelike momentum transfer. Confrontation of our results with corresponding earlier ones by QCD sum rules reveals significant disagreement...

We use the local hidden gauge approach in order to study the BBbar* and B*Bbar* interactions for isospin I=1. We show that both interactions via one light meson exchange are not allowed by the Okubo-Zweig-Iizuka rule and, for that reason, we calculate the contributions due to the exchange of two pions, interacting and noninteracting among themselves, and also due to the heavy vector mesons....

We study the physics of the strongly-correlated gluon

plasma with color-center vortices in the lattice SU(2)

simulations.

We observe in the deconfinement phase

how the equation of state, gluon propagators and

transport correlators depend on degrees of freedom of

lattice center vortices in the temporal and spatial

directions.

It is found that the magnetic sector of gluons

is more...

A new approach to study the mass spectrum of double heavy baryons containing strange and

charmed quarks is proposed. It is based on the separation of variables in the Schrödinger equation in the prolate spheroidal coordinates. Two non-relativistic potential models are considered.

In the first model, the interaction potential of the quarks is the sum of the Coulomb and non-spherically...

QCD-like theories provide testing grounds for truncations of functional equations at non-zero density, since comparisons with lattice results are possible due to the absence of the sign problem. As a first step towards such a comparison, we determine for various theories the chiral and confinement/deconfinement transitions from the quark propagator Dyson-Schwinger equation at zero chemical...

We investigate the magnetohydrodynamics in the presence of an external magnetic field following the power-law decay in proper time and having spatial inhomogeneity characterized by a Gaussian distribution in one of transverse coordinates under the Bjorken expansion. The leading-order solution is obtained in the weak-field approximation, where both energy density and fluid velocity are...

We make simulations of the zero-momentum $SU(2)$ Landau gauge gluon correlator both for periodic and zero-field boundary conditions at varying $\beta$ and $L_t * L_s^3$ lattice sizes.
