We present preliminary results for the masses and decay constants of the $\eta$ and $\eta^\prime$ mesons using CLS $N_f = 2+1$ ensembles. One of the major challenges in these calculations are the large statistical fluctuations due to disconnected quark loops. We tackle these by employing a combination of noise reduction techniques which are tuned to achieve the optimal noise reduction per cost. ... More

We present a comparative analysis of various methods to study the $\rho \rightarrow \pi \pi$ resonance. We use $N_f=2+1$ of clover fermions at a pion mass of approximately $320$ MeV and a lattice size of approximately $3.6$ fm, to investigate two ways of determining the parameters of the elastic $\pi\pi$ scattering; one is by extracting infinite volume phase shifts using the L\"uscher analysis an ...

We give a status report for our large scale simulation of 2+1 flavor lattice QCD at the physical point. The configurations are generated with the stout-smeared O(a)-improved Wilson quark action and the Iwasaki gauge action. We present some preliminary physics results and discuss the benefit and the significance of a large spatial volume.

A stochastic source using a dilute grid of source points and incorporating momentum-based smearing is used to generate the correlation function of the proton at rest and in a boosted frame. The dependence of the error terms on the number of source points and source separation is studied. Calculations on a $24^3\times 48$ lattice demonstrate that this novel technique yields reduced statistical erro ... More

The introduction of a uniform background magnetic field breaks three-dimensional spatial symmetry for a charged particle. This makes standard quark operators inefficient at isolating the nucleon correlation function at nontrivial field strengths. We introduce novel quark operators constructed from the two-dimensional Landau modes that describe a charged particle on a finite lattice. These Landau ... More

Hyperon-nucleon and hyperon-hyperon interactions are important in studying the properties of hypernuclei in hypernuclear physics. However, unlike the nucleons which are quite stable, hyperons are unstable so that the direct scattering experiments are difficult, which leads to the large uncertainty in the phenomenological determination of hyperon potentials. I ... More

We present our recent results of baryon interactions with strangeness $S=-1$ based on Nambu-Bethe-Salpeter (NBS) correlation functions calculated from lattice QCD with almost physical quark masses corresponding to $(m_\pi,m_K)\approx(146,525)$ MeV and large volume $(La)^4=(96a)^4\approx$ (8.1 fm)$^4$.

First-principles determination of baryon interactions plays a crucial role to build a bridge between particle, nuclear and astro-physics. The first LQCD calculation of baryon forces with (almost) physical quark masses (m_pi=146 MeV) is in progress, where the interactions are extracted from Nambu-Bethe-Salpeter (NBS) correlators by the time-dependent HAL QCD method. In this talk, we give a brief ov ... More

Achieving long plateaus in multibaryon systems is challenging because excited states contaminate the signal at early times and the signal is destroyed by noise at late times---ensuring there is enough time in between these two systematic effects is critical. I will explain how optimizing single-baryon observables can yield substantial improvements to multibaryon systems, dramatically extending ... More

Comparison of radial excitation energies to masses show that the velocity of b quark is very non-relativistic in bottomonium states. In a mixed system like charmed B meson, the b quark has less velocity than it has in bottomonium states and in strange B meson it is even slower. So one can use NRQCD for the b quark in those systems. Using overlap action for the s and c quarks and NRQCD for b q ... More

Many experiments have found evidence of charmonium-like states that do not fit into conventional models of quark-antiquark mesons. Non-perturbative insight provided by lattice simulations can help in understanding the properties of those states. The computation of single and multiparticle correlators is the main challenge of the numerical investigation of unstable states on the lattice. We extract ... More

There has been a lot of theoretical effort to unmask the pentaquark candidates, the $P_c^+$, since they were reported by LHCb collaboration in 2015. However, lack of knowledge in charmed-hadron interactions seems to be causing controversy on this issue; some argue that they are loosely-bound meson-baryon state, while others consider them as tightly-bound states, threshold cusps, and so forth. In ... More

Recently, phase shift data for the $\rho$-meson have been extracted from several $N_f = 2 + 1$ lattice simulations for diff erent pion masses. We analyze the lattice data sets with Unitarized Chiral Pertubation Theory. Chiral extrapolations are performed to postdict experimental phase shift data, and also compared with the ones obtained from the analysis of $N_f = 2$ lattice data. The low-energy ... More

We investigate a systematic error coming from higher excited state contributions in the binding energy of light nucleus by comparing two different source calculations with the exponential and wall sources. Since it is hard to obtain a clear signal of the wall source correlation function in a plateau region, we employ a large quark mass as the pion mass is 0.8 GeV in quenched QCD. We discuss t ... More

We compute hybrid static potentials in SU(3) lattice gauge theory. We present a method to automatically generate a large set of suitable creation operators with defined quantum numbers from elementary building blocks. We show preliminary results for several channels and discuss, which structures of the gluonic flux tube seem to be realized by the ground states in these channels.

I will discuss recent coupled-channel scattering calculations from the Hadron Spectrum Collaboration. Utilising the variational method with large bases of operators, including those that resemble q-qbar and meson-meson like constructions, many energy levels can be extracted. These spectra are then used with the coupled-channel extensions of Lüscher's finite volume formalism, to determine the infi ... More

The lowest-lying glueballs are investigated from $N_f=2$ QCD study on aniostropic lattices. Utilizing the gluonic operators built from Wilson loops to calculate the corresponding correlation functions, we obtain that in the tensor channel, the ground state mass to be $2.367(35)$ GeV and $2.380(61)$ GeV at $m_\pi∼938$ MeV and $650$ MeV, respectively.

Mixed action lattice QCD study with Borici-Creutz valence quarks on staggered sea quarks is carried out. The counter terms are fixed nonperturbatively to restore the broken symmetries.

Lattice QCD simulations of multi-baryon correlation functions can determine structure and reactions of nuclei without encountering the baryon chemical potential sign problem. However, they suffer from a signal-to-noise problem where Monte Carlo estimates of observables have quantum fluctuations that are exponentially larger than their average values. Recent lattice QCD results demonstrate that th ... More

These results require a non-perturbative evaluation of ultrasoft effects. The outcome can be compared with latt ... More

On the basis of the L¥"uscher's finite volume formula, a simple test (sanity check) is introduced and applied to inspect the recent claims of the existence of the nucleon-nucleon ($NN$) bound state(s) for heavy quark masses in lattice QCD.

The lattice QCD simulations of charmed states with $J^{PC} = 1^{++} $ have been performed in this study. Particularly, $X(3872)$ was investigated.

It has been observed that lattice QCD calculations of the nucleon mass show a strikingly linear dependence upon the pion mass such that $m_N[\textrm{MeV}] = 800 + m_\pi$ is a remarkably good _lattice- phenomenological_ estimate of the nucleon mass at a given pion mass for pion masses in the range $170 \leq m_\pi \leq 800$ MeV. If the _goodness_ of this extrapolation persists to the physical pion ... More

Within the last year it has been proposed that an exotic tetraquark state composed of two $b$-quarks and two $\bar{b}$-quarks could exist sufficiently far below the $2\eta_b$ threshold so to be found experimentally at the LHC. Such a state would be particularly clean theoretically because of its heavy quark content and, if it really is too light to decay to $2\eta_b$, annihilation and threshold ef ... More

In lattice QCD, both direct and HAL QCD potential methods are employed to study hadron interactions. In the direct method, the eigen-energy of two-body system is obtained from the temporal correlation function. The scattering phase shift is calculated by Luscher's finite volume formula, which should agree with HAL QCD method. However, for two-nucleon systems at heavier pion mass, there are differ ... More
