Baryonbaryon interactions and spinflavor symmetry from lattice quantum chromodynamics
Abstract
Lattice quantum chromodynamics is used to constrain the interactions of two octet baryons at the SU(3) flavorsymmetric point, with quark masses that are heavier than those in nature (equal to that of the physical strange quark mass and corresponding to a pion mass of $$\approx 806~\tt{MeV}$$). Specifically, the Swave scattering phase shifts of twobaryon systems at low energies are obtained with the application of L\"uscher's formalism, mapping the energy eigenvalues of two interacting baryons in a finite volume to the twoparticle scattering amplitudes below the relevant inelastic thresholds. The values of the leadingorder lowenergy scattering parameters in the irreducible representations of SU(3) are consistent with an approximate SU(6) spinflavor symmetry in the nuclear and hypernuclear forces that is predicted in the large$$N_c$$ limit of QCD. The two distinct SU(6)invariant interactions between two baryons are constrained at this value of the quark masses, and their values indicate an approximate accidental SU(16) symmetry. The SU(3) irreducible representations containing the $$NN~({^1}S_0)$$, $$NN~({^3}S_1)$$ and $$\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}(\Xi^0n+\Xi^p)~({^3}S_1)$$ channels unambiguously exhibit a single bound state, while the irreducible representation containing the $$\Sigma^+ p~({^3}S_1)$$ channel exhibits a state that is consistent with either a bound state or a scattering state close to threshold. These results are in agreement with the previous conclusions of the NPLQCD collaboration regarding the existence of twonucleon bound states at this value of the quark masses.

Baryon spinflavor structure from an analysis of lattice QCD results of the baryon spectrum
The excited baryon masses are analyzed in the framework of the 1/Nc expansion using the available physical masses and also the masses obtained in lattice QCD for different quark masses. The baryon states are organized into irreducible representations of SU(6) x O(3), where the [56,l ^{P}=0⁺] ground state and excited baryons, and the [56,2 ^{+}] and [70}},1 ^{}] excited states are analyzed. The analyses are carried out to order O(1/N _{c}) and first order in the quark masses. The issue of state identifications is discussed. Numerous parameter independent mass relations result at those orders, among them the well known GellMannOkubomore »Cited by 1 
Light Nuclei and HyperNuclei from Quantum Chromodynamics in the Limit of SU(3) Flavor Symmetry
The binding energies of a range of nuclei and hypernuclei with atomic number A <= 4 and strangeness s <= 2, including the deuteron, dineutron, Hdibaryon, {sup 3}He, {sub {Lambda}}{sup 3}He, {sub {Lambda}}{sup 4}He, and {sub {Lambda}{Lambda}}{sup 4}He, are calculated in the limit of flavorSU(3) symmetry at the physical strange quark mass with quantum chromodynamics (without electromagnetic interactions). The nuclear states are extracted from Lattice QCD calculations performed with n{sub f}=3 dynamical light quarks using an isotropic clover discretization of the quarkaction in three lattice volumes of spatial extent L ~ 3.4 fm, 4.5 fm and 6.7 fm, and withmore »
