Title: Baryon masses at nonzero isospin/kaon density

Abstract

We propose a lattice QCD calculation of the ground-state energy shifts of various baryons in a medium of pions or kaons at a single value of the quark mass corresponding to a pion mass of mπ ~390 MeV and a kaon mass of mK ~540 MeV, and in a spatial volume V ~ (4 fm)3. All systems are made using a canonical formalism in which quark propagators are contracted into correlation functions of fixed isospin/kaon density. We examine four different systems, Σ++)n, Ξ0+)n, p(K+)n, and n(K+)n, for up to n = 11 mesons. From the ground-state energy shifts we extract two- and three-body scattering parameters, as well as linear combinations of low-energy constants appearing in tree-level chiral perturbation theory.
