Calculation of the LepageMackenzie scale for the lattice axialvector and vector currents
We calculate the perturbative scales (q{sup {star}}) for the axialvector and vector currents for the Wilson action, with and without tadpole improvement, using the formalism of Lepage and Mackenzie. The scale for the pseudoscalar density (times the mass) is computed as well. Contrary to naive expectation, tadpole improvement reduces q{sup {star}} by only a small amount for the operators we consider. We also discuss the use of a nonperturbative coupling to calculate the perturbative scale. {copyright} {ital 1999} {ital The American Physical Society} 
The nucleon axial charge in full lattice QCD
The nucleon axial charge is calculated as a function of the pion mass in full QCD. Using domain wall valence quarks and improved staggered sea quarks, we present the first calculation with pion masses as light as 354 MeV and volumes as large as (3.5 fm)3. We show that finite volume effects are small for our volumes and that a constrained fit based on finite volume chiral perturbation theory agrees with experiment within 5% statistical errors. 
Nucleon axial charge in 2+1 flavor dynamical lattice QCD with domain wall fermions
We present results for the nucleon axial charge g_A at a fixed lattice spacing of 1/a=1.73(3) GeV using 2+1 flavors of domain wall fermions on size 16^3x32 and 24^3x64 lattices (L=1.8 and 2.7 fm) with length 16 in the fifth dimension. The total length of the Monte Carlo trajectory at the lightest quark mass is 7360 units, including 900 for thermalization. We find finite volume effects are larger than the pion mass dependence at the smallest value of m_\pi (= 330 MeV) in our calculation. We also find that g_A exhibits a scaling with the single variable m_\pi L whichmore »
