We study the chiral properties of an SU(3) gauge theory with N{f} massless Dirac fermions in the fundamental representation when N{f} is increased from 2 to 6. For N{f}=2, our lattice simulations lead to a value of psi psi/F{3}, where F is the Nambu-Goldstone-boson decay constant and psi psi is the chiral condensate, which agrees with the measured QCD value. For N{f}=6, this ratio shows significant enhancement, presaging an even larger enhancement anticipated as N{f} increases further, toward…

S parameter and parity doubling below the conformal window

Recently the Lattice Strong Dynamics Collaboration reported a reduction of the electroweak S parameter for SU(3) gauge theory with Nf=6 fermions in the fundamental representation, compared to

Infrared dynamics of minimal walking technicolor

We study the gauge sector of minimal walking technicolor, which is an SU(2) gauge theory with n{sub f}=2 flavors of Wilson fermions in the adjoint representation. Numerical simulations are performed

Lattice study of infrared behaviour in SU(3) gauge theory with twelve massless flavours

A bstractWe present details of a lattice study of infrared behaviour in SU(3) gauge theory with twelve massless fermions in the fundamental representation. Using the step-scaling method, we compute

Studies of Conformal Behavior in Strongly Interacting Quantum Field Theories

Author(s): Gasbarro, Andrew | Abstract: In this dissertation, we present work towards characterizing various conformal and nearly conformal quantum field theories nonperturbatively using a

Chiral symmetry breaking in nearly conformal gauge theories

We present new results on chiral symmetry breaking in nearly conformal gauge theories with fermions in the fundamental representation of the SU(3) color gauge group. The number of fermion flavors is

Investigating the conformal window of SU(N) gauge theories

In this thesis we are concerned with the existence of infrared fixed points and the conformal window for gauge theories with fermions. We are particularly interested in those theories that are

TeV Physics and Conformality

Lattice gauge theory has been very successful in deepening our understanding of the strong nuclear interactions. During the past two years, stimulated to some extent by the start-up of the Large
