We present a study of the finite density lattice Thirring model in 2 dimensions using the worldline/fermionbag 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

We estimate the production rate of photons from the quarkgluon plasma in lattice QCD.
The production of weaklyinteracting particles from a stronglyinteracting medium has applications to particle cosmology and heavyion phenomenology.
We propose a new observable which gives us better control over the systematic uncertainty in estimating the rate at large photon momenta.

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

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

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
