A coupled cluster study of Abelian lattice gauge field theories
It is widely accepted that the quantum chromodynamics (QCD) of interacting quarks and gluons is the best theory of the strong interaction, and hence of (sub-)hadronic structure, that is presently
Lattice Quantum Chromodynamics
Concepts and applications of lattice quantum chromodynamics (LQCD) are introduced. After discussing how to define quarks and gluons on the Euclidean hypercubic lattice, the strong coupling expansion
Chiral symmetry breaking and quark confinement in the nilpotency expansion of QCD
We apply to lattice QCD a bosonization method previously developed in which dynamical bosons are generated by time-dependent Bogoliubov transformations. The transformed action can be studied by an
Quantum Field Theories on the Lattice : Concepts behind their Numerical Simulations
We review the basic ideas behind numerical simulations of quantum field theory, which lead to non‐perturbative results in particle physics. We first sketch the functional integral formulation of
Hadron Physics from Lattice QCD
We sketch the basic ideas of the lattice regularization in Quantum Field Theory, the corresponding Monte Carlo simulations, and applications to Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD). This approach enables the
String formation and chiral symmetry breaking in the heavy-light quark-antiquark system in QCD
The effective quark Lagrangian is written for a light quark in the field of a static antiquark, explicitly containing field correlators as coefficient functions of products of quark operators. At
QCD and Hadrons on a Lattice
These lectures provide an elementary introduction to the study of hadronic physics using QCD on a lattice. Path integrals are reviewed to show how field theory on a lattice is reduced to quadrature.
Strongly Coupled Lattice Gauge Theories and Antiferromagnetic Spin Systems
In this thesis, I use the strong coupling expansion to investigate the multiflavor lattice Schwinger models in the hamiltonian formalism using staggered fermions. In particular, I am interested in
