  • We calculate the "strange quark content of the nucleon," , which is important for interpreting the results of some dark matter detection experiments. The method is to evaluate quark-line disconnected correlations on the MILC lattice ensembles, which include the effects of dynamical light and strange quarks. After continuum and chiral extrapolations, the result is = 0.69(7)_{stat}(9)_{syst}, in the modified minimal subtraction scheme (2 GeV) regularization, or for the renormalization scheme… CONTINUE READING
