Title: Neutron and proton electric dipole moments from Nf=2+1 domain-wall fermion lattice QCD

Abstract

We present a lattice calculation of the neutron and proton electric dipole moments (EDM’s) with Nf = 2 + 1 flavors of domain-wall fermions. The neutron and proton EDM form factors are extracted from three-point functions at the next-to-leading order in the θ vacuum of QCD. In this computation, we use pion masses 330 and 420 MeV and 2.7 fm3 lattices with Iwasaki gauge action and a 170 MeV pion and 4.6 fm3 lattice with I-DSDR gauge action, all generated by the RBC and UKQCD collaborations. The all-mode-averaging technique enables an efficient, high statistics calculation; however the statistical errors on our results are still relatively large, so we investigate a new direction to reduce them, reweighting with the local topological charge density which appears promising. Furthermore, we discuss the chiral behavior and finite size effects of the EDM’s in the context of baryon chiral perturbation theory.
