Chicken or the egg; or who ordered the chiral phase transition?

Kogan, II
Kovner, A
Tekin, Bayram
We draw an analogy between the deconfining transition in the (2+1)-dimensional Georgi-Glashow model and the chiral phase transition in (3+1)-dimensional QCD. Based on the detailed analysis of the former we suggest that the chiral symmetry restoration in QCD at high temperature is driven by the thermal ensemble of baryons and antibaryons. The chiral symmetry is restored when roughly half of the volume is occupied by the baryons. Surprisingly enough, even though baryons are rather heavy, a crude estimate for the critical temperature gives T-c=180 MeV. In this scenario the binding of the instantons is not the cause but rather a consequence of the chiral symmetry restoration.


Deconfinement at N > 2: SU(N) Georgi-Glashow model in 2+1 dimensions
Kogan, II; Tekin, Bayram; Kovner, A (2001-05-01)
We analyse the deconfining phase transition in the SU(N) Georgi-Glashow model in 2 + 1 dimensions. We show that the phase transition is second order for any N, and the universality class is different from the Z(N) invariant Villain model. At large N the conformal theory describing the fixed point is a deformed SU(N)(1) WZNW model which has N - 1 massless fields. It is therefore likely that its self-dual infrared fixed point is described by the Fateev-Zamolodchikov theory of Z(N) parafermions.
Magnetic properties of multiband U=infinity Hubbard model on anisotropic triangular and rectangular lattice strips
CHERANOVSKII, VO; Esentürk, Okan; PAMUK, HO (1998-11-01)
We study the dependence of the ground state spin of a multiband Hubbard model with infinite electron repulsion on anisotropic triangular and rectangular lattice strips on the model parameters. Considering the results of numerical calculations for the exact spectra of finite triangular lattice strips at different values of hopping integrals, we show the existence of a type of magnetic transitions with the jump of the ground state spin between minimal and maximal values. This transition is found only for spec...
Axial shear instability in a "tachion" region
Tsidulko, YA; Marji, E; Bilikmen, S; Mirnov, VV; Cakir, S; Oke, G (1999-01-01)
Plasma axial-shear flow instability arises due to a variation in an equilibrium E x B rotation along the axial direction in which the magnetic field is aligned. The two fluid MHD equations for incompressible perturbation (taking into account the FLR effects) being treated in WKB approximation in transversal direction yield one scalar Klein-Gordon type equation with one-dimensional effective potential U(s) and effective mass on(s). Only axisymmetric, paraxial geometry is analyzed in order to separate the des...
Axial vector transition form factors of N -> Delta in QCD
Küçükarslan, Ayşe; Özdem, Ulaş; Özpineci, Altuğ (Elsevier BV, 2016-12)
The isovector axial vector form factors of N -> Delta transition are calculated by employing Light-cone QCD sum rules. The analytical results are analyzedby both the conventional method, and also by a Monte Carlo based approach which allows one to scan all of the parameter space. The predictions are also compared with the results in the literature, where available. Although the MonteCarlo analysis predicts large uncertainties in the predicted results, the predictions obtained by the conventional analysis ar...
Deconfining phase transition in 2+1 D: the Georgi-Glashow model
Dunne, G; Kogan, II; Kovner, A; Tekin, Bayram (2001-01-01)
We analyze the finite temperature deconfining phase transition in (2 +1)-dimensional Georgi-Glashow model. We show explicitly that the transition is due to the restoration of the magnetic Z(2) symmetry and that it is in the Ising universality class. We find that neglecting effects of the charged W bosons leads to incorrect predictions for the value of the critical temperature and the universality class of the transition, as well as for various correlation functions in the high temperature phase. We derive t...
