We investigate the universality of truncation schemes for Dyson-Schwinger equations developed for quantum chromodynamics in theories which differ from quantum chromodynamics only in the gauge group. Our specific choices are the gauge groups $SU(2)$ and $G_2$, for which lattice calculations at nonvanishing chemical potential are possible. Thus, corresponding calculations can provide benchmarks for testing calculations with functional equations. We calculate the quark and gluon propagators and… 

Dense two-color QCD from Dyson-Schwinger equations

We investigate quantum chromodynamics with two colors at nonvanishing density using Dyson-Schwinger equations. Lattice methods do not have a complex action problem in this theory. Thus, we can

Baryon number fluctuations in the QCD phase diagram from Dyson-Schwinger equations

We present results for fluctuations of the baryon number for QCD at nonzero temperature and chemical potential. These are extracted from solutions to a coupled set of truncated Dyson-Schwinger

QCD phase structure at finite temperature and density

We discuss the phase structure of QCD for Nf=2 and Nf=2+1 dynamical quark flavors at finite temperature and baryon chemical potential. It emerges dynamically from the underlying fundamental

Finite-density gauge correlation functions in QC2D

2-color QCD is the simplest QCD-like theory which is accessible to lattice simulations at finite density. It therefore plays an important role to test qualitative features and to provide benchmarks

Non-perturbative QCD correlation functions

Functional methods provide access to the non-perturbative regime of quantum chromo- dynamics. Hence, they allow investigating confinement and chiral symmetry breaking. In this dissertation,

Dense two-color QCD towards continuum and chiral limits

We study two-color QCD with two flavors of Wilson fermion as a function of quark chemical potential mu and temperature T, for two different lattice spacings and two different quark masses. We find

Temperature Dependence of the Axion Mass in a Scenario Where the Restoration of Chiral Symmetry Drives the Restoration of the UA(1) Symmetry

The temperature (T) dependence of the axion mass is predicted for T ′ s up to ∼ 2 . 3 × the chiral restoration temperature of QCD. The axion is related to the U A ( 1 ) anomaly. The squared axion

Low-energy spectrum of an SU(2) gauge theory with dynamical fermions

The spectrum of light bound states in an SU(2) gauge theory with two flavors of fundamentally charged fermions is investigated by solving the Bethe-Salpeter equations in the respective channels



Quarks and gluons in the phase diagram of quantum chromodynamics

In this dissertation we study the phase diagram of strongly interacting matter by approaching the theory of quantum chromodynamics in the functional approach of Dyson-Schwinger equations. With these
