Parity doublers in chiral potential quark models
Abstract
The effect of spontaneous breaking of chiral symmetry over the spectrum of highly excited hadrons is addressed in the framework of a microscopic chiral potential quark model (Generalised NambuJonaLasinio model) with a vectorial instantaneous quark kernel of a generic form. A heavylight quarkantiquark bound system is considered, as an example, and the Lorentz nature of the effective lightquark potential is identified to be a pure Lorentzscalar, for lowlying states in the spectrum, and to become a pure spatial Lorentz vector, for highly excited states. Consequently, the splitting between the partners in chiral doublets is demonstrated to decrease fast in the upper part of the spectrum so that neighboring states of an opposite parity become almost degenerate. A detailed microscopic picture of such a 'chiral symmetry restoration' in the spectrum of highly excited hadrons is drawn and the corresponding scale of restoration is estimated.

A new mechanism for the parity doublers in hadrons is suggested. The role of the topology in hadrons has been scrutinized.

Heavy quark symmetry, chiral symmetry, and parity doublets of heavy mesons in the BetheSalpeter approach
It is shown that there must exist degenerate parity doublets of heavy mesons with arbitrary spin if QCD possesses both heavy quark and chiral symmetries. The chiral symmetric pahase and chiral broken phase can be dynamically turned in the BetheSalpeter approach. In the chiral broken phase the mass splittings of the parity doublets can be calculated and they are proportional to the constituent mass [ital m] of the light quark to order [ital m]/[Lambda][sub [chi]]. 
Parityviolating asymmetries in elastic e(vector sign)p scattering in the chiral quarksoliton model: Comparison with the A4, G0, HAPPEX and SAMPLE experiments
We investigate parityviolating electroweak asymmetries in the elastic scattering of polarized electrons off protons within the framework of the chiral quarksoliton model ({chi}QSM). We use as input the former results of the electromagnetic and strange form factors and newly calculated SU(3) axialvector form factors, all evaluated with the same set of four parameters adjusted several years ago to general mesonic and baryonic properties. Based on this scheme, which yields positive electric and magnetic strange form factors with {mu}{sub s}=(0.080.13){mu}{sub N}, we determine the parityviolating asymmetries of elastic polarized electronproton scattering. The results are in a good agreement with the datamore » 
Phase diagram of neutral quark matter in nonlocal chiral quark models
We consider the phase diagram of twoflavor quark matter under neutron star constraints for two nonlocal, covariant quark models within the meanfield approximation. In the first case (Model I) the nonlocality arises from the regularization procedure, motivated by the instanton liquid model, whereas in the second one (Model II) a separable approximation of the onegluon exchange interaction is applied. We find that Model II predicts a larger quark mass gap and a chiral symmetry breaking (CSB) phase transition line which extends 1520% further into the phase diagram spanned by temperature (T) and chemical potential ({mu}). The corresponding critical temperature atmore » 
Generalized quark transversity distribution of the pion in chiral quark models
The transversity generalized parton distributions (tGPDs) of the pion, involving matrix elements of the tensor bilocal quark current, are analyzed in chiral quark models. We apply the nonlocal chiral models involving a momentumdependent quark mass, as well as the local NambuJonaLasinio with the PauliVillars regularization to calculate the pion tGPDs, as well as related quantities following from restrained kinematics, evaluation of moments, or taking the FourierBessel transforms to the impactparameter space. The obtained distributions satisfy the formal requirements, such as proper support and polynomiality, following from Lorentz covariance. We carry out the leadingorder QCD evolution from the low quarkmodel scalemore »
