We present results on the mass of the nucleon and the ∆ using two dynamical degenerate twisted mass quarks. The evaluation is performed at four quark masses corresponding to a pion mass in the range of 690-300 MeV on lattices of size 2.1 fm and 2.7 fm. We check for cutoff effects by evaluating these baryon masses on lattices of spatial size 2.1 fm with(More)
We present results on the mass of the baryon octet and decuplet using two flavors of light dynam-ical twisted mass fermions. The strange quark mass is fixed to its physical value from the kaon sector in a partially quenched set up. Calculations are performed for light quark masses corresponding to a pion mass in the range 270-500 MeV and lattice sizes of(More)
PLQCD is a stand–alone software library developed under PRACE for lattice QCD. It provides an implementation of the Dirac operator for Wilson type fermions and few efficient linear solvers. The library is optimized for multi-core machines using a hybrid parallelization with OpenMP+MPI. The main objectives of the library is to provide a scalable(More)
We determine the quark mass ratio m(c)/m(s) on the lattice, using Wilson-type fermions. Configurations with N(f)=2 dynamical clover-improved fermions by the QCDSF Collaboration are used, which were made available through the ILDG. In the valence sector we use a sophisticated, mass-independently O(a)-improved Wilson-type action with small cutoff effects even(More)
We discuss the techniques to extract the electromagnetic ∆ form factors in Lattice QCD. We evaluate these form factors using dynamical fermions with smallest pion mass of about 350 MeV. We pay particular attention to the extraction of the electric quadrupole form factor that signals a deformation of the ∆. The magnetic moment of the ∆ is extrapolated using(More)
We evaluate the light, strange, and charm scalar content of the nucleon using one lattice QCD ensemble generated with two degenerate light quarks with mass fixed to their physical value. We use improved techniques to evaluate the disconnected quark loops to sufficient accuracy to determine the strange and charm nucleon σ terms in addition to the light quark(More)
