Event details

The chirally rotated Schrödinger functional for Wilson-fermions allows for finite-volume, mass-independent renormalization schemes compatible with automatic O(a) improvement. So far, in QCD, the setup has only been studied in the quenched approximation. Here we present first results for Nf = 2 dynamical quark-flavours for several renormalization factors of quark-bilinears. We discuss how these renormalization factors can be easily obtained from simple ratios of two-point functions, and show how automatic O(a) improvement is at work. As a by-product of this investigation the renormalization of the non-singlet axial current, Z_A , is determined very precisely.

About Particle Physics Theory seminars

The Particle Physics Theory seminar is a weekly series of talks reflecting the diverse interests of the group. Topics include analytic and numerical calculations based on the Standard Model of elementary particle physics, theories exploring new physics, as well as more formal developments in gauge theories and gravity..
