The lattice infrared Landau gauge gluon propagator: the infinite volume limit

  title={The lattice infrared Landau gauge gluon propagator: the infinite volume limit},
  author={Orlando Oliveira and P. J. Silva},
  journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Lattice},
We report on the infrared behaviour of the lattice gluon propagator. The bounds on D(0) and their behaviour with the lattice volume are investigated, together with the full propagator. Moreover, a study of the gluon propagator using different lattice spacings is carried out.

Towards the continuum limit of the lattice Landau gauge gluon propagator
The infrared behaviour of the lattice Landau gauge gluon propagator is discussed, combining results from simulations with different volumes and lattice spacings. In particular, the Cucchieri‐Mendes
The Infrared Behaviour of the Pure Yang–Mills Green Functions
We review the infrared properties of the pure Yang–Mills correlators and discuss recent results concerning the two classes of low-momentum solutions for them reported in literature, i.e. decoupling
The lattice infrared Landau gauge gluon propagator: from finite volume to the infinite volume
The Landau gauge lattice gluon propagator is discussed for different sets of lattices. Particular attention is given to its infrared properties. Our results show that the lattice propagator can be
From Running Gluon Mass to Chiral Symmetry Breaking
The gluon propagator is one of the fundamental Green's functions of QCD. It is an essential ingredient in, for example, the modeling of the Schwinger-Dyson equation used to describe hadronic
QCD effective charges from lattice data
We use recent lattice data on the gluon and ghost propagators, as well as the Kugo-Ojima function, in order to extract the non-perturbative behavior of two particular definitions of the QCD effective
Aspects of confinement in QCD from lattice simulations
We study confinement in quantum chromodynamics via numerical simulations in the framework of lattice gauge theory. In Landau gauge, the mechanism of confinement is related to the infrared behavior of
Gauge invariant Ansatz for a special three-gluon vertex
We construct a general Ansatz for the three-particle vertex describing the interaction of one background and two quantum gluons, by simultaneously solving the Ward and Slavnov-Taylor identities it
Nonperturbative structure of the ghost-gluon kernel
The ghost-gluon scattering kernel is a special correlation function that is intimately connected with two fundamental vertices of the gauge sector of QCD: the ghost-gluon vertex, which may be

Gluon and ghost propagators in the Landau gauge: Deriving lattice results from Schwinger-Dyson equations
We show that the application of a novel gauge-invariant truncation scheme to the Schwinger-Dyson equations of QCD leads, in the Landau gauge, to an infrared finite gluon propagator and a divergent

Constraints on the infrared behavior of the gluon propagator in Yang-Mills theories.
A controlled extrapolation of lattice data to infinite volume is performed, showing that the infrared limit of the Landau-gauge gluon propagator in SU(2) gauge theory is finite and nonzero in three and in four space-time dimensions.
Does the lattice zero-momentum gluon propagator for pure-gauge SU(3) Yang-Mills theory vanish in the infinite-volume limit?
The Cucchieri-Mendes bounds for the gluon propagator are discussed for the four dimensional pure-gauge SU(3) theory. Assuming a pure power law dependence on the inverse of the lattice volume, the

Just how different are SU(2) and SU(3) Landau-gauge propagators in the IR regime?
The infrared behavior of gluon and ghost propagators in Yang-Mills theories is of central importance for understanding quark and gluon confinement in QCD. While simulations of pure SU(3) gauge theory
The Universal Renormalization Factors Z_1/Z_3 and Color Confinement Condition in Non-Abelian Gauge Theory
The ratio Z_1/Z_3 of vertex and wave-function renormalization factors, which is universal (i.e., matter-independent), is shown to equal 1+u which gives the residue of the scalar pole $\propto p_\mu
Quark confinement: the hard problem of hadron physics
We give a brief overview of the problem of quark confinement in hadronic physics and outline a few of the suggested explanations of the confining force.
