Quark masses and strong coupling constant in 2+1 flavor QCD
Abstract
We present a determination of the strange, charm and bottom quark masses as well as the strong coupling constant in 2+1 flavor lattice QCD simulations using highly improved staggered quark action. The ratios of the charm quark mass to the strange quark mass and the bottom quark mass to the charm quark mass are obtained from the meson masses calculated on the lattice and found to be mc/ms = 11.877(91) and mb/mc = 4.528(57) in the continuum limit. We also determine the strong coupling constant and the charm quark mass using the moments of pseudoscalar charmonium correlators: α _{s}(μ = m _{c}) = 0.3697(85) and mc(μ = mc) = 1.267(12) GeV. Our result for αs corresponds to the determination of the strong coupling constant at the lowest energy scale so far and is translated to the value α _{s}(μ = M _{Z}, n _{f} = 5) = 0.11622(84).

Strong Coupling Constant with Flavor Thresholds at Four Loops in the Modified MinimalSubtraction Scheme
We present in analytic form the matching conditions for the strong coupling constant {alpha}{sup (n{sub f})}{sub s }({mu}) at the flavor thresholds to three loops in the modified minimalsubtraction scheme. Taking into account the recently calculated coefficient {beta}{sub 3} of the CallanSymanzik beta function of quantum chromodynamics, we thus derive a fourloop formula for {alpha}{sup (n{sub f})}{sub s }({mu}) together with appropriate relationships between the asymptotic scale parameters {Lambda}{sup (n{sub f})} for different numbers of flavors n{sub f} . {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society} 
Strong coupling constant from vacuum polarization functions in threeflavor lattice QCD with dynamical overlap fermions
We determine the strong coupling constant {alpha}{sub s} from a lattice calculation of vacuum polarization functions (VPF) in threeflavor QCD with dynamical overlap fermions. Fitting lattice data of VPF to the continuum perturbative formula including the operator product expansion, we extract the QCD scale parameter {Lambda}{sub MS}{sup (3)}. At the Z boson mass scale, we obtain {alpha}{sub s}{sup (5)}(M{sub z}) = 0.1181(3)(+14/12), where the first error is statistical and the second is our estimate of various systematic uncertainties. 
StrongCoupling Constant with Flavor Thresholds at Five Loops in the Modified MinimalSubtraction Scheme
We present in analytic form the matching conditions for the strongcoupling constant {alpha}{sub s}{sup (n{sub f})}({mu}) at the flavor thresholds to four loops in the modified minimalsubtraction scheme. Taking into account the present knowledge on the coefficient {beta}{sub 4} of the CallanSymanzik beta function of quantum chromodynamics, we thus derive a fiveloop formula for {alpha}{sub s}{sup (n{sub f})}({mu}) together with appropriate relationships between the asymptotic scale parameters {lambda}{sup (n{sub f})} for different numbers of flavors n{sub f}. 
Strong coupling constant and flavor thresholds in QCD
NLO QCD analysis of the world unpolarized and polarized deepinelastic experimental data were performed in order to extract the {lambda}{sub QCD} and {alpha}{sub s}(M{sub z}{sup 2}). In this paper we use the {lambda}{sub QCD} which can be obtain from the polarized deeply inelastic scattering. By having the {lambda}{sub QCD}, one can determine the {alpha}{sub s}(M{sub z}{sup 2}). We compare all of different NLO measurements of the strong coupling constant in unpolarized and polarized deeply inelastic scattering.
