DESY, Platanenalle 6, 15738 Zeuthen, GermanyE-mail: rainer.sommer@desy.deWe discuss some large effects of dynamical fermions. One is a cutoff effect, others concern thecontribution of multi-pion states to correlation functions and are expected to survive the contin-uum limit. We then turn to the preparation for simulations at small lattice spacings which weare planning down to around a = 0:04 fm in order to understand the size of O(a

Scaling test of two-flavor O(a)-improved lattice QCD

- Physics
- 2008

We report on a scaling test of several mesonic observables in the non-perturbatively O(a) improved Wilson theory with two flavors of dynamical quarks. The observables are constructed in a fixed…

Heavy-light decay constant at the 1/m order of HQET

- Physics

Following the strategy developed by the ALPHA collaboration, we present a method to compute non-perturbatively the decay constant of a heavy-light meson in HQET including the 1/m corrections. We…

Investigating the critical slowing down of QCD simulations

- Physics

Simulations of QCD are known to suffer from serious critical slowing down towards the continuum limit. This is particularly prominent in the topological charge. We investigate the severeness of the…

We introduce new discretizations of the action for static quarks. They achieve an exponential improvement (compared to the Eichten-Hill regularization) on the signal to noise ratio in static-light…
