Dirac Spectrum , Axial Anomaly and the QCD Chiral Phase Transition ∗

Abstract

The QCD phase transition is studied on 16 and 32 × 4 lattices both with and without quark loops. We introduce a new zero-flavor or quenched species of quark ζ and study the resulting chiral condensate, 〈ζ̄ζ〉 as a function of the ζ mass, mζ . By examining 〈ζ̄ζ〉 for 10 −10 ≤ mζ ≤ 10 we gain considerable information about the spectrum of Dirac eigenvalues. A… (More)
