Baryonbaryon bound states in strongly coupled lattice QCD
Abstract
We determine baryonbaryon bound states in 3+1 dimensional SU(3) lattice QCD with two flavors, 4x4 spin matrices, and in an imaginarytime functional integral formulation. For small hopping parameter, {kappa}>0, and large glueball mass (strong coupling regime), we show the existence of threequark isospin 1/2 particles (proton and neutron) and isospin 3/2 baryons (delta particles), with asymptotic masses 3ln{kappa} and isolated dispersion curves. We only consider the existence of bound states of total isospin I=0,3. Using a ladder approximation to a lattice BetheSalpeter equation, baryonbaryon bound states are found in these two sectors, with asymptotic masses 6ln{kappa} and binding energies of order {kappa}{sup 2}. The dominant baryonbaryon interaction is an energyindependent spatial rangeone potential with an O({kappa}{sup 2}) strength. There is also attraction arising from gauge field correlations associated with six overlapping bonds, but it is counterbalanced by Pauli repulsion to give a vanishing zerorange potential. The overall rangeone potential results from a quark, antiquark exchange with no mesonexchange interpretation; the repulsive or attractive nature of the interaction does depend on the isospin and spin of the twobaryon state.

Onebaryon spectrum and analytical properties of onebaryon dispersion curves in 3 + 1 dimensional strongly coupled lattice QCD with three flavors
Considering a 3 + 1 dimensional lattice quantum chromodynamics (QCD) model defined with the improved Wilson action, three flavors, and 4 × 4 Dirac spin matrices, in the strong coupling regime, we reanalyze the question of the existence of the eightfold way baryons and complete our previous work where the existence of isospin octet baryons was rigorously solved. Here, we show the existence of isospin decuplet baryons which are associated with isolated dispersion curves in the subspace of the underlying quantum mechanical Hilbert space with vectors constructed with an odd number of fermion and antifermion basic quark and antiquark fields.more » 
Baryonbaryon bound state in a 2+1 lattice QCD model with two flavors and strong coupling
We consider baryonbaryon bound states in SU(3) lattice QCD with two flavors, 2x2 spin matrices in 2+1 dimensions, and in an imaginary time formulation. For small hopping parameter 0<{kappa}<<1 and large glueball mass, we show the existence of an isospin 3/2 baryon, with asymptotic mass 3ln{kappa} and isolated dispersion curve. Baryonbaryon bound states of isospin zero and one are found with approximate binding energy {kappa}{sup 2}/8 and {kappa}{sup 2}/24, respectively, using a ladder approximation to a BetheSalpeter equation. The baryonbaryon interaction associated with the ladder approximation is an energy independent spatial rangeone attractive potential with an O({kappa}{sup 2}) strength. Themore » 
The critical points of strongly coupled lattice QCD at nonzero chemical potential
We study QCD at nonzero quark density, zero temperature, infinite coupling using the Glasgow algorithm. An improved complex zero analysis gives a critical point {mu}{sub c} in agreement with that of chiral symmetry restoration computed with strong coupling expansions, and monomerdimer simulations. We observe, however, two unphysical critical points: the onset for the number density {mu}{sub 0}, and {mu}{sub s} the saturation threshold, coincident with pathological onsets observed in past quenched QCD calculations. An analysis of the probability distributions for particle number supports our physical interpretation of the critical point {mu}{sub c}, and offers a new intepretation of {mu}{sub 0},more » 
Dynamical eightfold way mesons in strongly coupled lattice QCD
We consider a 3+1 lattice QCD model with three quark flavors, local SU(3){sub c} gauge symmetry, global SU(3){sub f} flavor symmetry, in an imaginarytime formulation and with strong coupling (a small hopping parameter {kappa}>0 and a plaquette coupling {beta}>0, 0<{beta}<<{kappa}<<1). Associated with the model there is an underlying physical quantum mechanical Hilbert space H which, via a FeynmanKac formula, enables us to derive spectral representations for correlations and obtain the lowlying energymomentum spectrum exactly. Using the decoupling of hyperplane method and concentrating on the subspace H{sub e} subset of H of vectors with an even number of quarks, we obtainmore »
