Variational Analysis

ψi : gauge invariant fields on a timeslice t that corresponds to

Hilbert space operatorψjwhose quantum numbers are also carried

by the states|n>.

Construct a matrix

- Need to find out variational coefficients
- such that the overlap to a state is maximum

- Variational solution Generalized eigenvalue problem :

- Eigenvalues give spectrum :

- Eigenvectors give the optimal operator :

- Basis of operators is only a part of the Hilbert space (n = 1,…N; N≠∝)
- The eigenvectors are orthogonal only in full space.
- Orthogonality is controlled by the metric C(t0) :
- t0 should be chosen such that the NXN correlator matrix is dominated by the lightest N states at t0
- Excited states contribution falls of exponentially go to large t0
- However, signal/noise ratio increases at large t0
- Choose optimum t0

Overlap Factor (Z)

Dudek et.al

- Resonances are simply energies at which differential cross-section of a particle reaches a maximum.
- In scattering expt. resonance dramatic increase in cross-section with a corresponding sudden variation in phase shift.
- Unstable particles but they exist long enough to be recognized as having a particular set of quantum numbers.
- They are not eigenstates of the Hamiltonian, but has a large overlap onto a single eigenstates.
- They may be stable at high quark mass.
- Volume dependence of spectrum in finite volume is related to the two-body scattering phase-shift in infinite volume.
- Near a resonance energy : phase shift rapidly passes through pi/2, an abrupt rearrangement of the energy levels known as avoided “level crossing” takes place.

- Method 1 :
- Study spectrum in a few volumes
- Compare those with known multi-hadron decay channels
- Resonance states will have no explicit volume dependence whereas scattering states will have inverse volume dependence.

- Relate finite box energy to infinite volume phase shifts by Luscher formula
- Calculate energy spectrum for several volumes to evaluate phase shifts for various volumes
- Extract resonance parameters from phase shifts

- Collect energies for several volumes into momentum bin in energy histograms that leads to a probability distribution which shows peaks at resonance position.

- Finite box : Momenta are quantized
- Lattice Hamiltonian can have both
resonance and decay channel states

- A x+y, Spectra of mA and
- One needs to separate out resonance states from scattering states

Normalization condition requires :

Two point function :

For one particle bound state

spectral weight (W) will NOT be explicitly dependent on lattice volume

- Periodic boundary condition on some quark fields while anti-periodic on others
- Bound and scattering states will be changing differently.
