Title: {eta} and {eta}{sup '} mesons and dimension 2 gluon condensate <A{sup 2}>

Abstract

The study of light pseudoscalar quark-antiquark bound states in the Dyson-Schwinger approach with the effective QCD coupling enhanced by the interplay of the dimension 2 gluon condensate <A{sup 2}> and dimension 4 gluon condensate <F{sup 2}>, is extended to the {eta}-{eta}{sup '} complex. We include the effects of the gluon axial anomaly into the Dyson-Schwinger approach to mesons. The calculated masses, mixing and two-photon decay widths of {eta} and {eta}{sup '} mesons are in agreement with experiment. Also, in a model-independent way, we give the modification of the Gell-Mann-Okubo and Schwinger nonet relations due to the interplay of the gluon anomaly and SU(3) flavor symmetry breaking.

  • We consider the gluon propagator D(p{sup 2}) at various lattice sizes and spacings in the case of pure SU(3) Yang-Mills gauge theories using the Landau gauge fixing. We discuss a class of fits in the infrared region in order to (in)validate the tree level analytical prediction in terms of the (refined) Gribov-Zwanziger framework. It turns out that an important role is played by the presence of the widely studied dimension two gluon condensate <A{sup 2}>. Including this effect allows to obtain an acceptable fit around 1 to 1.5 GeV, while corroborating the refined Gribov-Zwanziger prediction for the gluon propagator. Wemore » also discuss the infinite volume extrapolation, leading to the estimate D(0)=8.3{+-}0.5 GeV{sup -2}. As a by-product, we can also provide the prediction <g{sup 2}A{sup 2}>{approx_equal}3 GeV{sup 2} obtained at the renormalization scale {mu}=10 GeV.« less
  • Recent developments provided evidence that the dimension 2 gluon condensate <A{sup 2}> is important for the nonperturbative regime of Yang-Mills theories (quantized in the Landau gauge). We show that it may be relevant for the Dyson-Schwinger approach to QCD. In order that this approach leads to a successful hadronic phenomenology, an enhancement of the effective quark-gluon interaction seems to be needed at intermediate (p{sup 2}{approx}0.5 GeV{sup 2}) momenta. It is shown that the gluon condensate <A{sup 2}> provides such an enhancement. It is also shown that the resulting effective strong running coupling leads to the sufficiently strong dynamical chiral symmetrymore » breaking and successful phenomenology at least in the light sector of pseudoscalar mesons.« less
  • The ghost condensate <{epsilon}{sup abc}c{sup b}c{sup c}> is considered together with the gluon condensate <A{sub {mu}}{sup 2}> in SU(2) Euclidean Yang-Mills theories quantized in the Landau gauge. The vacuum polarization ceases to be transverse due to the nonvanishing condensate <{epsilon}{sup abc}c{sup b}c{sup c}>. The gluon propagator itself remains transverse. By polarization effects, this ghost condensate induces then a splitting in the gluon mass parameter, which is dynamically generated through <A{sub {mu}}{sup 2}>. The obtained effective masses are real when <A{sub {mu}}{sup 2}> is included in the analysis. In the absence of <A{sub {mu}}{sup 2}>, the already known result that themore » ghost condensate induces effective tachyonic masses is recovered. At the one-loop level, we find that the effective diagonal mass becomes smaller than the off-diagonal one. This might serve as an indication for some kind of Abelian dominance in the Landau gauge, similar to what happens in the maximal Abelian gauge.« less
  • We consider the non-Abelian Bianchi identities in SU(2) pure Yang-Mills theory in D=3,4 focusing on the possibility of their violation and the significance of the chromomagnetic fields degeneracy points. We show that the recently proposed non-Abelian Stokes theorem allows one to formulate the Bianchi identities in terms of the physical fluxes and their relative color orientations. Then the violation of Bianchi identities becomes a well defined concept ultimately related to the degeneracy points. The locality and gauge invariance of our approach allows one to study the problem numerically. We present evidence that in D=4 the suppression of the Bianchi identitiesmore » violation is likely to destroy confinement, while the removal of the degeneracy points drives the theory to the topologically nontrivial sector. However, confronting the results obtained in three and four dimensions, we argue that it is the mass dimension two condensate <A{sub min}{sup 2}> which probably explains our findings.« less
  • We compute power-suppressed corrections to the {eta}{gamma} and {eta}{sup '}{gamma} transition form factors Q{sup 2}F{sub {eta}}{sub ({eta}}{sub {sup '}}{sub {gamma}}(Q{sup 2}) arising from the end point regions x{yields}0,1 by employing the infrared-renormalon approach. The contribution to the form factors from the quark and gluon content of the {eta},{eta}{sup '} mesons is taken into account using for the {eta}-{eta}{sup '} mixing the SU{sub f}(3) singlet {eta}{sub 1} and octet {eta}{sub 8} basis. The theoretical predictions obtained this way are compared with the corresponding CLEO data and restrictions on the input parameters (Gegenbauer coefficients) B{sub 2}{sup q}({eta}{sub 1}), B{sub 2}{sup g}({eta}{sub 1}),more » and B{sub 2}{sup q}({eta}{sub 8}) in the distribution amplitudes for the {eta}{sub 1},{eta}{sub 8} states with one nonasymptotic term are deduced. Comparison is made with the results from QCD perturbation theory.« less
