Lattice Calculation: Caveats and Challenges
• What lattice can and cannot do
• Caveats of calculating meson masses
• Gluebal
• Heavy-light mesons
• Glueballs
What Can We Use Lattice to Calculate?
• Masses, decay constants, form factors, matrix elements, etc.
• Due to the Charge- Hermiticity (CH) theorem, all observables are real. Thus, there is no S-matrix.
• However, one can calculate scattering length and phase shift for elastic scattering and discern multi-quark hadrons by exploring the finite volume dependence.
• Hadron masses do not depend on interpolation fields. They only affect the spectral weights in the hadron correlators.
• Since both the multi-quark hadron (e.g. ) and the muti-hadron state can be generated by the same interpolation field with a specific quantum number (e.g. a0 and πη), one needs to identify both and discern their natures, e.g. through the volume dependence of the spectral weights.
Challenges for calculation
• Except for σ(600), practically all the tetraquark mesonium candidates are near their respective two-meson thresholds, e.g. f0(980) and a0 (980) are near the threshold. So are
• are near the DK and DD (DD*) thresholds. It is hard to fit both the mesonium and the two-meson state which are within
• ~ 100 MeV to each other.
• Heavy-light mesons: it is more desirable to have the same chiral fermion formalism. One needs to be concerned about the finite ma errors for the heavy quark which demands small lattice spacing a and thus large lattice volume.

Glueballs

Quenched Glueball Spectrum

Quenched spectrum was calculated with ~ 100,000 configurations.

Number of dynamical fermion configurations are typically in the hundreds.
