  • An explicit calculation has been performed for the one-loop corrections to the quark propagator and to the quark-quark-gluon vertex in the planar gauge with the Mandelstam-Leibbrandt prescription for the spurious poles. The Lee-Ward-Takahashi identities for the connected Green's functions are also checked and discussed.
  • We extend recent studies of the effects of quark-gluon vertex dressing upon the solutions of the Dyson-Schwinger equation for the quark propagator. A momentum delta function is used to represent the dominant infrared strength of the effective gluon propagator so that the resulting integral equations become algebraic. The guark-gluon vertex is constructed from the complete set of diagrams involving only 2-point gluon lines. The additional diagrams, including those with crossed gluon lines, are shown to make an important contribution to the DSE solutions for the quark propagator, because of their large color factors and the rapid growth in their number.
  • The nucleon-meson vertex structure is discussed by using the transition potential of one-gluon exchange with the production of a quark-antiquark pair, which is deduced from quark-gluon interaction, based on the nonrelativistic quark model. The transition probabilities for nucleon..-->..nucleon+meson, obtained by generator-coordinate method, show that the mesons exchanged in the nucleon-nucleon interaction are produced mainly in the surface region of a nucleon. However, there also exist some probabilities of finding mesons inside a nucleon. The fact that the relative probability of ..pi.. meson is largest in the long-range interaction shows its importance in the processes of meson exchange. The effect ofmore » meson size on probabilities, which shows the coupling strength of meson and nucleon, is also discussed.« less
  • The infrared behavior of the quark-gluon vertex of quenched Landau gauge QCD is studied by analyzing its Dyson-Schwinger equation. Building on previously obtained results for Green functions in the Yang-Mills sector, we analytically derive the existence of power-law infrared singularities for this vertex. We establish that dynamical chiral symmetry breaking leads to the self-consistent generation of components of the quark-gluon vertex forbidden when chiral symmetry is forced to stay in the Wigner-Weyl mode. In the latter case the running strong coupling assumes an infrared fixed point. If chiral symmetry is broken, either dynamically or explicitly, the running coupling is infraredmore » divergent. Based on a truncation for the quark-gluon vertex Dyson-Schwinger equation which respects the analytically determined infrared behavior, numerical results for the coupled system of the quark propagator and vertex Dyson-Schwinger equation are presented. The resulting quark mass function as well as the vertex function show only a very weak dependence on the current quark mass in the deep infrared. From this we infer by an analysis of the quark-quark scattering kernel a linearly rising quark potential with an almost mass independent string tension in the case of broken chiral symmetry. Enforcing chiral symmetry does lead to a Coulomb type potential. Therefore, we conclude that chiral symmetry breaking and confinement are closely related. Furthermore, we discuss aspects of confinement as the absence of long-range van der Waals forces and Casimir scaling. An examination of experimental data for quarkonia provides further evidence for the viability of the presented mechanism for quark confinement in the Landau gauge.« less
  • The quark loop contribution to the Reggeon-Reggeon-gluon vertex is calculated in QCD, where the Reggeon is the Reggeized gluon. Compared with the vertex in the Born approximation, this contribution exhibits a new spin structure as well as the gluon loop one. A remarkable but not complete cancellation between gluon and quark contributions to this new spin structure takes place for the case of three massless quark flavors.
