This is of particular relevance to numerical calculations performed using Lattice Quantum Chromodynamics (LQCD). Correlators calculated using LQCD can only be determined on the Euclidean time axis. For this reason the standard method of determining scattering amplitudes via the Lehmann-Symanzik-Zimmermann reduction formula cannot be employed. By contrast, the nite-volume spectrum is directly accessible in LQCD calculations. Formalism for relating the spectrum to physical scattering observables is thus highly desirable. In this thesis we develop tools for extracting physical information from LQCD<a href='#' onclick='$(this).hide().next().show().next().show();return false;' style='margin-left:10px;'>more »</a><span style='display:none;'> for four types of observables. First we analyze systems with multiple, strongly-coupled two-scalar channels. Here we accommodate both identical and nonidentical scalars, and in the latter case allow for degenerate as well as nondegenerate particle masses. Using relativistic eld theory, and summing to all orders in perturbation theory, we derive a result relating the nite-volume spectrum to the two-to-two scattering amplitudes of the coupled-channel theory. This generalizes the formalism of Martin L uscher for the case of single-channel scattering. Second we consider the weak decay of a single particle into multiple, coupled two-scalar channels. We show how the nite-volume matrix element extracted in LQCD is related to matrix elements of asymptotic two-particle states, and thus to decay amplitudes. This generalizes work by Laurent Lellouch and Martin L uscher. Third we extend the method for extracting matrix elements by considering currents which insert energy, momentum and angular momentum. This allows one to extract transition matrix elements and form factors from LQCD. Finally we look beyond two-particle systems to those with three-particles in asymptotic states. Working again to all orders in relativistic eld theory, we derive a relation between the spectrum and an in nite-volume three-to-three scattering quantity. This nal analysis is the most complicated of the four, because the all-orders summation is more di cult for this system, and also because a number of new technical issues arise in analyzing the contributing diagrams.</span><a href='#' onclick='$(this).hide().prev().hide().prev().show();return false;' style='margin-left:10px;display:none;'>« less</a></div><div class="metadata-links small clearfix text-muted" style="margin-top:15px;"> <div class="pure-menu pure-menu-horizontal pull-right" style="width:unset;"> <ul class="pure-menu-list"> <li class="pure-menu-item"><span class="item-info-ftlink">DOI: <a class="misc doi-link " href="https://doi.org/10.2172/1172552" target="_blank" rel="noopener" title="Link to document DOI" data-ostiid="1172552" data-product-type="Thesis/Dissertation" data-product-subtype="" >10.2172/1172552</a></span></li> <li class="pure-menu-item"><span class="item-info-ftlink"><a class="misc fulltext-link " href="/servlets/purl/1172552" title="Link to document media" target="_blank" rel="noopener" data-ostiid="1172552" data-product-type="Thesis/Dissertation" data-product-subtype="" >Full Text Available</a></span></li> </ul> </div> </div> </div> <div class="clearfix"></div> </div> </li> <li> <div class="article item document" itemprop="itemListElement" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/WebPage"><meta itemprop="position" content="2" /><div class="item-info"> <h2 class="title" itemprop="name headline"><a href="/biblio/4116649-microcovariance-microcausality" itemprop="url">ON MICROCOVARIANCE AND MICROCAUSALITY</a></h2> <div class="metadata"> <small class="text-muted" style="text-transform:uppercase;display:block;line-height:2.5em;">Journal Article</small><span class="authors"> <span class="author">Shirokov, Yu.M.</span> <span class="text-muted pubdata"> - Nuclear Physics (Netherlands) Divided into Nucl.

The microcausality conditions suitable for particles with internal structure are formulated. Only general quantal principles and geometrical space-time properties are used in deriving these conditions. A new class of physical quantities named dynamical momenta is introduced. It is shown that dynamical momenta are the most convenient quantities for describing relativistic processes since they ensure a complete description, exist at each moment of time, and are asymptotic integrals of motion, i.e., tend to definite limits for infinite time. The<a href='#' onclick='$(this).hide().next().show().next().show();return false;' style='margin-left:10px;'>more »</a><span style='display:none;'> dynamical momenta are used to establish the connection of the quantities for which the microcovariance and microcausality conditions are written with the elements of the S-matrix. It is essential that no postulates of quantum field theory are used. It is also shown that the existence of the hamiltonian description follows from the existence of the S-matrix and pseudo-euclidean space-time. The relations obtained open possibilities for deriving new connections between the elements of the S-matrix for different processes as well as formulating the problem of experimental investigation of the limits of applicability for the current conception of space-time structure.
