Title: Strangeness Condensation by Expanding about the Fixed Point of the Harada-Yamawaki Vector Manifestation

Abstract

Building on, and extending, the result of a higher-order in-medium chiral perturbation theory combined with renormalization group arguments and a variety of observations of the vector manifestation of Harada-Yamawaki hidden local symmetry theory, we obtain a surprisingly simple description of kaon condensation by fluctuating around the 'vector manifestation' fixed point identified to be the chiral restoration point. Our development establishes that strangeness condensation takes place at {approx}3n{sub 0} where n{sub 0} is nuclear matter density. This result depends only on the renormalization-group (RG) behavior of the vector interactions, other effects involved in fluctuating about the bare vacuum in so many previous calculations being irrelevant in the RG about the fixed point. Our results have major effects on the collapse of neutron stars into black holes.
