Chiral and deconfinement aspects of the QCD transition
We present results on the chiral and deconfinement properties of the QCD transition at finite temperature. Calculations are performed with 2 + 1 flavors of quarks using the p4, asqtad, and HISQ/tree
Equation of state in ( 2+1 )-flavor QCD
We present results for the equation of state in ( 2 + 1 )-flavor QCD using the highly improved staggered quark action and lattices with temporal extent N τ = 6 , 8, 10, and 12. We show that these
Equation of state and QCD transition at finite temperature
We calculate the equation of state in $2+1$ flavor QCD at finite temperature with physical strange quark mass and almost physical light quark masses using lattices with temporal extent
Nonperturbative QCD Simulations with 2+1 Flavors of Improved Staggered Quarks
Dramatic progress has been made over the last decade in the numerical study of quantum chromodynamics (QCD) through the use of improved formulations of QCD on the lattice (improved actions), the
Fluctuations and Correlations of net baryon number, electric charge, and strangeness: A comparison of lattice QCD results with the hadron resonance gas model
We calculate the quadratic fluctuations of net baryon number, electric charge and strangeness as well as correlations among these conserved charges in (2+1)-flavor lattice QCD at zero chemical
Charmed and light pseudoscalar meson decay constants from four-flavor lattice QCD with physical light quarks
We compute the leptonic decay constants f D + , f D s , and f K + and the quark-mass ratios m c / m s and m s / m l in unquenched lattice QCD using the experimentally determined value of f π + for
Results from the MILC collaboration's SU(3) chiral perturbation theory analysis
We present the status of the MILC collaboration's analysis of the light pseudoscalar meson sector with SU(3) chiral fits. The analysis includes data from new ensembles with smaller lattice spacing,
Determination of αs from the QCD static energy: An update
We present an update of our determination of the strong coupling αs from the quantum chromodynamics static energy. This updated analysis includes new lattice data, at smaller lattice spacings and
