### Is is cheating to use alpha strong (instead of V_QCD) to argue that there is asymptotic freedom of QCD?

For asymptotic freedom of QCD, people give the argument that alpha_strong decreases at high energy (thus there is freedom at low distance). But if we make the reasoning on the QCD potential, for ...

### Uniform discrete physical theories [closed]

I'm looking for a list of physical theories which are discrete and uniform (in some sense). For example, if space-time has a regular lattice like structure this would be uniform. If possible, are ...

### Is the QCD potential really monotonic ? How does it prevent two quarks from meson to annihilate?

The QCD potential is made of two terms -(4/3) * alpha_s / r that describes the short distance and the term +k*r that describes the long distance Of course, alpha is a function of energy, so it is ...

### Quantum Monte Carlo Loop Algorithm for quantum spin: why is the freezing graph present in ferromagnetic Ising model?

I study the loop algorithm (Evertz et al). I cannot understand, why the freezing graph type where we have to flip all 4 spins together is not present for the quantum-XY model and the anti-/...

### Collimated Beam through Palladium Powder to identify the lattice structure

I came across the following Problem: A collimated beam with a wavelength of $0.162 \ [nm]$ is incident upon a powdered sample of simple cubic metal palladium. Now, five angles are given, which ...

### Different ways to write t-V model Hamiltonian

The $t-V$ model is usually written as: $$H = -t\sum_{i}^{L}c_i^\dagger c_{i+1} + c_{i+1}^\dagger c_i + V\sum_i n_i n_{i+1}$$ where $c_i^\dagger(c_i)$ are creation (annahilation) operators and $n_i$ is ...

### What's wrong with lattice quantum gravity?

Assume one can write the metric field on a lattice, so on each lattice point one has a value of $g^{\mu\nu}$. Similar to the way lattice QCD is formulated. Then later taking the distance between ...

### Lattice model realization of $SU(2)$ WZW model at level $k$?

Is there any lattice model realization of the following model: $c=1$ boson at the self-dual radius, or the $SU(2)$ WZW model at $k=1$. This is a question inspired by: Orbifolds of the $c =1$ ...

### Temperature-dependence of quark potential in Abelian lattice gauge theory

I am working with Kapusta's "Finite-Temperature Field Theory" textbook, and am working through the first part of chapter 10. When building the correlator of the two quarks a distance $R$ apart in the ...
