Title: Connecting the hadron mass scale to the fundamental mass scale of quantum chromodynamics

Abstract

We establish an explicit connection between the long distance physics of confinement and the dynamical interactions of quarks and gluons at short distances and it has been a long-sought goal of quantum chromodynamics. Using holographic QCD, we derive a direct analytic relation between the scale κ which determines the masses of hadrons and the scale Λs which controls the predictions of perturbative QCD at very short distances. The resulting prediction Λs=0.341±0.032 GeV in the MS-scheme agrees well with the experimental average 0.339±0.016 GeV. We also derive a relation between Λs and the QCD string tension σ. Furthermore, this connection between the fundamental hadronic scale underlying the physics of quark confinement and the perturbative QCD scale controlling hard collisions can be carried out in any renormalization scheme.
