Title: One-loop renormalization of pure Yang-Mills theory with Lorentz violation

Abstract

The explicit one-loop renormalizability of pure Yang-Mills theory with Lorentz violation is demonstrated. The result is consistent with multiplicative renormalization as the required counterterms are consistent with a single rescaling of the Lorentz-violation parameters. In addition, the resulting beta functions indicate that the CPT-even Lorentz-violating terms increase with energy scale in opposition to the asymptotically free gauge coupling and CPT-odd terms. The calculations are performed at lowest order in the Lorentz-violating terms as they are assumed small.

  • The Gell-Mann--Low function and the anomalous dimensions of propagators in the Yang-Mills theory are calculated in the two-loop approximation for an arbitrary value of the gauge parameter.
  • The explicit one-loop renormalizability of the gluon sector of QCD with Lorentz violation is demonstrated. The result is consistent with multiplicative renormalization, as the required counterterms are consistent with a single rescaling of the Lorentz-violation parameters. In addition, the resulting beta functions indicate that the CPT-even Lorentz-violating terms increase with energy scale in opposition to the asymptotically free gauge coupling and CPT-odd terms. The calculations are performed at lowest order in the Lorentz-violating terms, as they are assumed small.
  • The one-loop renormalizability of the electroweak sector of the standard model extension (SME) with Lorentz violation is studied. Functional determinants are used to calculate the one-loop contributions of the Higgs, gauge bosons and fermions to the one-loop effective action. The results are consistent with multiplicative renormalization of the SME coupling constants. Conventional electroweak symmetry breaking is effectively unaltered relative to the standard case as the renormalized SME parameters are sufficient to absorb all infinite contributions00.
  • We give a direct path-integral calculation of the partition function for pure 3+1 dimensional U(N) Yang-Mills theory at large N on a small S{sup 3}, up to two loop order in perturbation theory. From this, we calculate the one loop shift in the Hagedorn/deconfinement temperature for the theory at small volume, finding that it increases (in units of the inverse sphere radius) as we go to larger coupling (larger volume). Our results also allow us to read off the sum of one loop anomalous dimensions for all operators with a given engineering dimension in planar Yang-Mills theory on R{sup 4}.more » As checks on our calculation, we reproduce both the Hagedorn shift and some of the anomalous dimension sums by independent methods using the results of Beisert et al. [Nucl. Phys. B 717, 137 (2005)] and Spradlin and Volovich [Nucl. Phys. B 711, 199 (2005)]. The success of our calculation provides a significant check of methods used by Aharony et al. [Phys. Rev. D 71, 125018 (2005)] to establish a first-order deconfinement transition for pure Yang-Mills theory on a small S{sup 3}.« less
