We present a study of the finite density lattice Thirring model in 2 dimensions using the world-line/fermion-bag algorithm. The model has features similar to QCD and provides a test case to explore the accuracy of various methods to solve sign problems. In the massless limit and with open boundary conditions we show that the sign problem is an artifact of the auxiliary field approach and is comple ... More

We estimate the production rate of photons from the quark-gluon plasma in lattice QCD. The production of weakly-interacting particles from a strongly-interacting medium has applications to particle cosmology and heavy-ion phenomenology. We propose a new observable which gives us better control over the systematic uncertainty in estimating the rate at large photon momenta. The relevant Euclidean ... More

In order to estimate the photon rate from the Euclidean vector current correlation functions, an inverse problem for the vector-channel spectral function must be solved. We use both a direct model for the spectral function and a model-independent estimate from the Backus-Gilbert method to give a robust estimate for the photon rate at momenta close to its maximum. At low photon momenta, the exis ... More

In QCD above the deconfinement temperature there exists an Anderson transition in the fermion spectrum from localized to delocalized modes. We investigate whether the same holds for nonlinear sigma models. In particular we study the spectra of fermions coupled to (quenched) CP(N-1) configurations at high temperatures. We compare results in two and three space-time dimensions: in two dimensio ... More

In the worldline formulation the particle number of a lattice quantum field theory assumes an elegant topological form: it is the winding number of the worldlines around the compactified time direction. In a numerical worldline simulation one can implement the canonical ensemble by using only updates that preserve the winding number and thus the number of particles. We explore the idea of a canoni ... More

In application of the complex Langevin method to finite density QCD at low temperature, the singular-drift problem occurs due to the appearance of near-zero eigenvalues of the Dirac operator. In order to avoid this problem, we proposed to deform the Dirac operator in such a way that the near-zero eigenvalues do not appear and to extrapolate the deformation parameter to zero from the available data ...

We have extended our CLE simulations of lattice QCD at a finite quark-number chemical potential, $\mu$, on a $12^4$ lattice at $\beta=6/g^2=5.6$ to a weaker coupling, $\beta=5.7$, and larger, $16^4$, lattice. Limitations of the method and choice of lattice fermions are discussed as are possible improvements.

We study QCD at finite density and low temperature by using the complex Langevin method. We employ the gauge cooling to control the unitarity norm and introduce a deformation parameter in the Dirac operator to avoid the singular drift problem. The reliability of the obtained results are judged by the probability distribution of the magnitude of the drift term. By extrapolating the reliable results ... More

These invariants allow to perform Monte Carlo simulations of Young Mills Theory and Lattice QCD with staggered fermions in a dual, color singlet representation. This formulation is in particular useful to tame the finite density sign problem.

The dual form of the massless Schwinger model on the lattice overcomes the complex action problems from two sources: from a topological term, as well as from non-zero chemical potential, making these physically interesting cases accessible to Monte Carlo simulations.

We report on the lattice computation of the Landau gauge gluon propagator at finite temperature, including the non-zero Matsubara frequencies. Furthermore, the Källén-Lehmann representation is inverted and the corresponding spectral density evaluated using a Tikhonov regularisation together with the Morozov discrepancy principle. Implications for gluon confinement are also discussed.

SU(2) is the simplest non-abelian gauge theory with fermions without sign problem. Therefore its study on the lattice is a benchmark for other non-perturbative approaches at finite density.

We use 4stout improved staggered lattice data at imaginary chemical potentials to calculate virial coefficients in finite temperature QCD. Since the virial expansion is an expansion in the fugacity, i.e. the exponential of the chemical potential, for imaginary chemical potentials the coefficients simply become Fourier coefficients, allowing for an accurate determination from our simulations.

The sign problem in particle physics appears in QCD as soon as a non-zero chemical potential is introduced.

The computation of real-time properties, such as transport coefficients or bound state spectra of strongly interacting quantum fields in thermal equilibrium is a pressing matter.

I will discuss the issue of Landau levels of quarks in lattice QCD in an external magnetic field. I will show that in the two-dimensional case the lowest Landau level can be identified unambiguously even if the strong interactions are turned on.

Lefschetz-thimble method becomes a powerful tool to study the sign problem. It defines the steepest descent contours by the gradient flow in complexified field configurations. Solutions of the gradient flow, however, generically blow up in a finite time, and thus it must be solved with great cares. We propose a new gradient flow without blow-ups that equally solves the sign problem as the conv ... More

In lattice simulations, every topological sector need to be explored a number of times which reflects its weight in the path integral. Current lattice simulations are impeded by the so-called freezing of the topological charge problem. ... More

In this talk we report our study on the thermal modifications of charmonia and bottomonia from spatial correlation functions at zero and nonzero momenta in quenched QCD. To accommodate the heavy quarks on the lattice we performed simulations on very fine lattices at a fixed beta value corresponding to a lattice spacing $a^{-1}\sim $22 GeV on $192^3\times 32$, $192^3\times 48$, $192^3\times 64$ and ...

We study the topological charge in $N_f=2$ QCD at finite temperature using Mobius domain-wall fermions. The susceptibility $\chi_t$ of the topological charge defined either by the index of overlap Dirac operator or a gluonic operator is investigated at several values of temperature $T\ (>T_c)$ varying the quark mass. A strong suppression of the susceptibility is observed below a certain value of t ... More

The severe sign problem (SSP) is a longstanding challenge for high energy and solid-state theorists. In order to test new proposals to simulate physical systems with SSP it would be very useful to dispose of systems with SSP, and non trivial phase structure, the dynamics of which is well known. We study here the two-dimensional antiferromagnetic Ising model within an imaginary magnetic field, ... More

Recently there has been remarkable progress in solving the sign problem, which occurs in investigating statistical systems with a complex weight. The two promising methods, the complex Langevin method and the Lefschetz thimble method, share the idea of complexifying the dynamical variables, but their relationship has not been clear. Here we propose a unified formulation, in which the sign problem ... More

We report on the status of ongoing investigations aiming at: locating the deconfinement critical point with standard Wilson fermions and <I>N<sub>f</sub> = 2</i> flavors towards the continuum limit (standard Columbia plot); locating the tricritical masses at imaginary chemical potential with unimproved staggered fermions at <I>N<sub>f</sub> = 2</i> (extended Columbia plot); identifying the order o ...

In this report we study the properties of the dense SU(2) QCD. The lattice simulations are carried out with improved gauge action and smaller lattice spacing as compared to our previous work. This allowed us to approach closer to the continuum limit and reach larger densities without lattice artifacts. We measured string tension and Polyakov loop as functions of chemical potential and temperatur ... More
