Infrared behavior of QCD from the Dyson-Schwinger formalism
Fischer, Christian S.
High Energy Physics - Phenomenology , 2008,
Abstract: We discuss the properties of two different types of infrared solutions of Landau gauge Yang-Mills theory and argue for one of these (the 'scaling solution'). We furthermore clarify the status of previously obtained results from DSEs on a four-torus. Including quarks we discuss a relation between confinement and dynamical chiral symmetry breaking based on the scaling solution of Yang-Mills theory. An infrared singularity in the quark-gluon vertex allows for a solution of the $U_A$(1) problem along the lines of a mechanism suggested by Kogut and Susskind long ago.
Infrared Properties of QCD from Dyson-Schwinger equations
Christian S. Fischer
Physics , 2006, DOI: 10.1088/0954-3899/32/8/R02
Abstract: I review recent results on the infrared properties of QCD from Dyson-Schwinger equations. The topics include infrared exponents of one-particle irreducible Green's functions, the fixed point behaviour of the running coupling at zero momentum, the pattern of dynamical quark mass generation and properties of light mesons.
Infrared exponents of Yang-Mills theory
Christian S. Fischer
Physics , 2005,
Abstract: In this talk I summarise recent results on the infrared exponents of SU($N_c$)-Yang-Mills theory. I discuss a self-consistent power law solution for the Dyson-Schwinger equations for general 1PI-Greens functions in the infrared. The corresponding running coupling has a fixed point at zero momentum, which turns out to be universal and gauge invariant within a class of transverse gauges. When calculated on a torus the infrared exponents of the ghost and gluon propagators differ from the corresponding continuum solutions. They agree, however, well with results from lattice calculations.
Nucleon Compton scattering from the Dyson-Schwinger perspective
Eichmann, Gernot;Fischer, Christian S.
High Energy Physics - Phenomenology , 2013,
Abstract: We summarize results from our recent paper* on nucleon Compton scattering in the Dyson-Schwinger approach. We study the Compton scattering phase space and its various kinematic limits, and we introduce a covariant, transverse tensor basis for the scattering amplitude that is free of kinematic singularities. We illustrate the decomposition of the Compton amplitude at the quark-gluon level and calculate its nonperturbative handbag part, which also includes all t-channel meson resonances. The calculation requires numerical solutions for the dressed quark propagator, the nucleon's Faddeev amplitude and the quark Compton vertex as its input; they are consistently obtained from Dyson-Schwinger, Bethe-Salpeter and Faddeev equations. As a first application, we verify that the result for the Compton scattering amplitude reproduces the pi-gamma-gamma transition form factor when the pion pole in the t channel is approached. *G.

Beyond the rainbow: effects from pion back-coupling
Fischer, Christian S.;Williams, Richard
High Energy Physics - Phenomenology , 2008, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevD.78.074006
Abstract: We investigate hadronic unquenching effects in light quarks and mesons. To this end we take into account the back-coupling of the pion onto the quark propagator within the non-perturbative continuum framework of Schwinger-Dyson equations (SDE) and Bethe-Salpeter equations (BSE). We improve on a previous approach by explicitly solving both the coupled system of DSEs and BSEs in the complex plane and the normalisation problem for Bethe-Salpeter kernels depending on the total momentum of the meson. As a result of our study we find considerable unquenching effects in the spectrum of light pseudoscalar, vector and axial-vector mesons.
Pion-cloud effects in the BSE description of mesons
Williams, Richard;Fischer, Christian S.
High Energy Physics - Phenomenology , 2008,
Abstract: We investigate the effect of including hadronic resonance contributions in the description of light quarks and mesons. To this end we take into account the back-coupling of the pion onto the quark propagator within the non-perturbative continuum framework of Schwinger-Dyson equations (SDE) and Bethe-Salpeter equations (BSE), in essence describing the so-called \emph{pion-cloud}. As a result of our study we find that an unquenching of this form provides for considerable effects in the spectrum of light mesons.
Probing the gluon self-interaction in light mesons
Christian S. Fischer,Richard Williams
Physics , 2009, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevLett.103.122001
Abstract: We investigate masses and decay constants of light mesons from a coupled system of Dyson--Schwinger and Bethe--Salpeter equations. We explicitly take into account dominant non-Abelian contributions to the dressed quark-gluon vertex stemming from the gluon self-interaction. We construct the corresponding Bethe-Salpeter kernel that satisfies the axial-vector Ward-Takahashi identity. Our numerical treatment fully includes all momentum dependencies with all equations solved completely in the complex plane. This approach goes well beyond the rainbow-ladder approximation and permits us to investigate the influence of the gluon self-interaction on the properties of mesons. As a first result we find indications of a nonperturbative cancellation of the gluon self-interaction contributions and pion cloud effects in the mass of the rho-meson.
Bethe-Salpeter equations: mesons beyond the rainbow-ladder truncation
Richard Williams,Christian S. Fischer
Physics , 2009,
Abstract: We investigate masses of light mesons from a coupled system of Dyson--Schwinger (DSE) and Bethe--Salpeter equations (BSE), taking into account dominant non-Abelian, sub-leading Abelian, and dominant pion cloud contributions to the dressed quark-gluon vertex. The axial-vector Ward-Takahashi identity preserving Bethe-Salpeter kernel is constructed and the spectrum of light mesons calculated. Our model goes significantly beyond the rainbow-ladder. We find that sub-leading Abelian corrections are further dynamically suppressed, and that our results supersede early qualitative predictions from simple truncation schemes.
