The nucleon-nucleon (NN) potential is studied by lattice QCD simulations in the quenched approximation, using the plaquette gauge action and the Wilson quark action on a 32(4) [approximately (4.4 fm)(4)] lattice. A NN potential V(NN)(r) is defined from the equal-time Bethe-Salpeter amplitude with a local interpolating operator for the nucleon. By studying(More)
Analyzing correlation functions of charmonia at finite temperature (T) on 32(3)x(32-96) anisotropic lattices by the maximum entropy method (MEM), we find that J/psi and eta(c) survive as distinct resonances in the plasma even up to T approximately 1.6T(c) and that they eventually dissociate between 1.6T(c) and 1.9T(c) (T(c) is the critical temperature of(More)
We study the interplay between chiral and diquark condensates within the framework of the Ginzburg-Landau free energy, and classify possible phase structures of two and three-flavor massless QCD. The QCD axial anomaly acts as an external field applied to the chiral condensate in a color superconductor and leads to a crossover between the broken chiral(More)
Firstly, I give a brief summary of the current understanding of QCD below and near T c (the critical temperature of the chiral transition). Some emphases are put on the qualitative difference between the Yukawa regime (T ∼ 0) and the Hagedorn regime (T ∼ T c). Secondly, the dynamical phenomena associated with the chiral transition, in particular, the(More)
We delineate, as an analog of two-flavor dense quark matter, the phase structure of a many-body mixture of atomic bosons and fermions in two internal states with a tunable boson-fermion attraction. The bosons b correspond to diquarks, and the fermions f to unpaired quarks. For weak b-f attraction, the system is a mixture of a Bose-Einstein condensate and(More)
