Results on the hadron masses for a degenerate doublet of up and down quarks from quenched twisted mass lattice QCD at maximal twist are presented. Two definitions of maximal twist are used and the hadron masses for these definitions are compared. Mass splittings within the ∆(1232) multiplet due to flavor breaking effects are discussed. c Copyright owned by(More)
A deflated restarted Lanczos algorithm is given for both solving symmetric linear equations and computing eigenvalues and eigenvectors. The restarting limits the storage so that finding eigenvectors is practical. Meanwhile, the deflating from the presence of the eigenvectors allows the linear equations to generally have good convergence in spite of the(More)
The large systems of complex linear equations that are generated in QCD problems often have multiple right-hand sides (for multiple sources) and multiple shifts (for multiple masses). Deflated GMRES methods have previously been developed for solving multiple right-hand sides. Eigen-vectors are generated during solution of the first right-hand side and used(More)
We consider symmetric positive definite systems of linear equations with multiple right-hand sides. The seed conjugate gradient method solves one right-hand side with the conjugate gradient method and simultaneously projects over the Krylov subspace thus developed for the other right-hand sides. Then the next system is solved and used to seed the remaining(More)
We consider three improvements to seed methods for Hermitian linear systems with multiple right-hand sides: only the Krylov subspace for the first system is used for seeding subsequent right-hand sides, the first right-hand side is solved past convergence, and periodic re-orthogonalization is used in order to control roundoff errors associated with the(More)
Various suggestions exist for incorporating the strange quark into twisted mass QCD. One option for quenched simulations is to employ two twisted doublets, (u, d) and (c, s), with separate twist angles. Working in the isospin limit, preliminary results for the quenched spectrum of strange hadrons are presented, with both twist angles tuned to π/2.(More)
A deflated and restarted Lanczos algorithm to solve hermitian linear systems, and at the same time compute eigenvalues and eigenvectors for application to multiple right-hand sides, is described. For the first right-hand side, eigenvectors with small eigenvalues are computed while simultaneously solving the linear system. Two versions of this algorithm are(More)
