PROGRESS IN FOUR-DIMENSIONAL LATTICE SUPERSYMMETRY

We are entering an era where a number of large-scale lattice simulations of four-dimensional supersymmetric theories are under way. Moreover, proposals for how to approach such studies continue to

Rooted staggered fermions: good, bad or ugly?

I give a status report on the validity of the so-called “fourt h-root trick”, i.e. the procedure of representing the determinant for a single fermion by the fourth root of the staggered fermion

Logarithmic corrections to O($a$) and O($a^2$) effects in lattice QCD with Wilson or Ginsparg-Wilson quarks

B - and D -meson leptonic decay constants from four-flavor lattice QCD

We calculate the leptonic decay constants of heavy-light pseudoscalar mesons with charm and bottom quarks in lattice quantum chromodynamics on four-flavor QCD gauge-field configurations with

Lattice gauge theory with staggered fermions: how, where, and why (not)

Many results from lattice QCD of broad importance to particle and nuclear physics are obtained with 2+1 flavors of staggered sea quarks. In the continuum limit, staggered fermions yield four species,

Power Counting and Renormalization in Lattice Field Theory

In an Euclidean quantum field theory a space-time lattice provides a quite natural non-perturbative ultraviolet cutoff. This has lead to a variety of non-perturbative methods. Observable physics has

The Dirac-Kähler equation and fermions on the lattice

The geometrical description of spinor fields by E. Kähler is used to formulate a consistent lattice approximation of fermions. The relation to free simple Dirac fields as well as to Susskind's

A power counting theorem for Feynman integrals on the lattice

A convergence theorem is proved, which states sufficient conditions for the existence of the continuum limit for a wide class of Feynman integrals on a space-time lattice. A new kind of a

A convergence theorem for lattice Feynman integrals with massless propagators

It is shown that for non-vanishing lattice spacing, conventional infrared power counting conditions are sufficient for convergence of lattice Feynman integrals with zero-mass propagators. If these
