Thermodynamics of the QCD plasma and the large-N limit.

- Physics, Medicine
- Physical review letters
- 2009

The results for SU(N) Yang-Mills theories with N=3, 4, 5, 6, and 8 colors show a very mild dependence on N, supporting the idea that the QCD plasma could be described by models based on the large-N limit. Expand

Lattice test of 1/Nc baryon mass relations

- Physics
- 2009

1/N c baryon mass relations are compared with lattice simulations of baryon masses using different values of the light-quark masses, and hence different values of SU(3) flavor-symmetry breaking. The… Expand

Lattice calculations of the spectroscopy of baryons with broken flavor SU(3) symmetry and 3, 5, or 7 colors

- Physics
- 2014

Lattice Monte Carlo calculations of baryon spectroscopy in gauge groups SU(N), N=3, 5, 7, are presented. The quenched valence fermions come in three flavors, two degenerate mass ones and a third… Expand

theta dependence of SU(N) gauge theories in the presence of a topological term

- Physics
- 2008

Abstract We review results concerning the θ dependence of 4D S U ( N ) gauge theories and QCD, where θ is the coefficient of the CP-violating topological term in the Lagrangian. In particular, we… Expand

Lack of thermalization in (1+1)-d QCD at large $N_c$

- Physics
- 2019

Motivated by recent works aimed at understanding the status of equilibration and the eigenstate thermalization hypothesis in theories with confinement, we return to the 't Hooft model, the… Expand

LARGE-Nc BARYONS

- Physics
- 1998

▪ Abstract A spin-flavor symmetry emerges for baryons in the large-Nc limit. Large-Nc baryons form irreducible representations of the spin-flavor algebra, and their static properties can be computed… Expand

Holographic Descriptions Of QCD

- Physics
- 2008

In this thesis we investigate proposed duals to QCD. Duals to QCD fall into two categories: `top-down' and `bottom-up'. We take inspiration from both by truncating a consistent solution to the type… Expand

Quarkyonic chiral spirals

- Physics
- 2010

Abstract We consider the formation of chiral density waves in Quarkyonic matter, which is a phase where cold, dense quarks experience confining forces. We model confinement following Gribov and… Expand

LARGE BREAKING OF ISOSPIN SYMMETRY IN AN ELECTROWEAK SU(2)L × U(1) GAUGE THEORY OF J = 0 MESONS: THE CASE OF K → ππ DECAYS

- Physics
- 1999

K→ππ decays are investigated in the framework of the SU(2)L×U(1) gauge theory of J=0 mesons proposed in Ref. 1, to which is added an interaction between mesons respecting the two symmetries generally… Expand
