Confinement Gluon and Quark Confinement –No coloured states have yet been observed to reach a detector Empirical fact. However –There is no agreed, theoretical definition of light-quark confinement –Static-quark confinement is irrelevant to real-world QCD There are no long-lived, very-massive quarks Confinement entails quark-hadron duality; i.e., that all observable consequences of QCD can, in principle, be computed using an hadronic basis.

Confinement Confinement is expressed through a dramatic change in the analytic structure of propagators for coloured particles & can almost be read from a plot of a states’ dressed-propagator –Gribov (1978); Munczek (1983); Stingl (1984); Cahill (1989); Roberts, Williams & Krein (1992); Tandy (1994); … Craig Roberts: Confinement contains Condensates 6 complex-P 2 o Real-axis mass-pole splits, moving into pair(s) of complex conjugate poles or branch points o Spectral density no longer positive semidefinite & hence state cannot exist in observable spectrum Normal particle Confined particle SP, 7-8/05/12: Perspectives in Non-P QCD - 74pgs timelike axis: P 2 <0

Dynamical Chiral Symmetry Breaking SStrong-interaction: Q CD CConfinement –E–Empirical feature –M–Modern theory and lattice-QCD support conjecture that light-quark confinement is a fact associated with violation of reflection positivity; i.e., novel analytic structure for propagators and vertices –S–Still circumstantial, no proof yet of confinement OOn the other hand, DCSB is a fact in QCD –I–It is the most important mass generating mechanism for visible matter in the Universe. Responsible for approximately 98% of the proton’s mass. Higgs mechanism is ( almost ) irrelevant to light-quarks.

Frontiers of Nuclear Science: Theoretical Advances In QCD a quark's effective mass depends on its momentum. The function describing this can be calculated and is depicted here. Numerical simulations of lattice QCD (data, at two different bare masses) have confirmed model predictions (solid curves) that the vast bulk of the constituent mass of a light quark comes from a cloud of gluons that are dragged along by the quark as it propagates. In this way, a quark that appears to be absolutely massless at high energies (m =0, red curve) acquires a large constituent mass at low energies.

Infinitely many coupled equations: Kernel of the equation for the quark self-energy involves: –D μν (k) – dressed-gluon propagator –Γ ν (q,p) – dressed-quark-gluon vertex each of which satisfies its own DSE, etc… Coupling between equations necessitates a truncation –Weak coupling expansion ⇒ produces every diagram in perturbation theory –Otherwise useless for the nonperturbative problems in which we’re interested Persistent challenge in application of DSEs SP, 7-8/05/12: Perspectives in Non-P QCD - 74pgs Craig Roberts: Confinement contains Condensates 16 Invaluable check on practical truncation schemes

17
Persistent challenge - truncation scheme Symmetries associated with conservation of vector and axial-vector currents are critical in arriving at a veracious understanding of hadron structure and interactions Example: axial-vector Ward-Takahashi identity –Statement of chiral symmetry and the pattern by which it’s broken in quantum field theory SP, 7-8/05/12: Perspectives in Non-P QCD - 74pgs Craig Roberts: Confinement contains Condensates 17 Axial-Vector vertex Satisfies an inhomogeneous Bethe-Salpeter equation Quark propagator satisfies a gap equation Kernels of these equations are completely different But they must be intimately related Relationship must be preserved by any truncation Highly nontrivial constraint FAILURE has an extremely high cost – loss of any connection with QCD

18
Persistent challenge - truncation scheme These observations show that symmetries relate the kernel of the gap equation – nominally a one-body problem, with that of the Bethe-Salpeter equation – considered to be a two-body problem Until 1995/1996 people had no idea what to do Equations were truncated, sometimes with good phenomenological results, sometimes with poor results Neither good nor bad could be explained SP, 7-8/05/12: Perspectives in Non-P QCD - 74pgs Craig Roberts: Confinement contains Condensates 18 quark-antiquark scattering kernel

But no one is thinking about how properly to consider or define what will come to be called the vacuum quark condensate So long as the condensate is just a mass-dimensioned constant, which approximates another well-defined matrix element, there is no problem.

Note of Warning Craig Roberts: Confinement contains Condensates 37 SP, 7-8/05/12: Perspectives in Non-P QCD - 74pgs Chiral Magnetism (or Magnetohadrochironics) A. Casher and L. Susskind, Phys. Rev. D9 (1974) 436 These authors argue that dynamical chiral- symmetry breaking can be realised as a property of hadrons, instead of via a nontrivial vacuum exterior to the measurable degrees of freedom The essential ingredient required for a spontaneous symmetry breakdown in a composite system is the existence of a divergent number of constituents – DIS provided evidence for divergent sea of low-momentum partons – parton model.

Universal Conventions Wikipedia: (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QCD_vacuum)(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QCD_vacuum) “The QCD vacuum is the vacuum state of quantum chromodynamics (QCD). It is an example of a non- perturbative vacuum state, characterized by many non- vanishing condensates such as the gluon condensate or the quark condensate. These condensates characterize the normal phase or the confined phase of quark matter.” SP, 7-8/05/12: Perspectives in Non-P QCD - 74pgs Craig Roberts: Confinement contains Condensates 41

QCDQCD How should one approach this problem, understand it, within Quantum ChromoDynamics? 1)Are the quark and gluon “condensates” theoretically well- defined? 2)Is there a physical meaning to this quantity or is it merely just a mass-dimensioned parameter in a theoretical computation procedure?

44
“Dark Energy” Two pieces of evidence for an accelerating universe 1)Observations of type Ia supernovae → the rate of expansion of the Universe is growing 2)Measurements of the composition of the Universe point to a missing energy component with negative pressure: CMB anisotropy measurements indicate that the Universe is at Ω 0 = 1 ⁺⁄₋ In a flat Universe, the matter density and energy density must sum to the critical density. However, matter only contributes about ⅓ of the critical density, Ω M = 0.33 ⁺⁄₋ Thus, ⅔ of the critical density is missing. Craig Roberts: Confinement contains Condensates 44 SP, 7-8/05/12: Perspectives in Non-P QCD - 74pgs

45
“Dark Energy” In order not to interfere with the formation of structure (by inhibiting the growth of density perturbations) the energy density in this component must change more slowly than matter (so that it was subdominant in the past). Accelerated expansion can be accommodated in General Relativity through the Cosmological Constant, Λ. Einstein introduced the repulsive effect of the cosmological constant in order to balance the attractive gravity of matter so that a static universe was possible. He promptly discarded it after the discovery of the expansion of the Universe. Craig Roberts: Confinement contains Condensates 45 SP, 7-8/05/12: Perspectives in Non-P QCD - 74pgs In order to have escaped detection, the missing energy must be smoothly distributed. Contemporary cosmological observations mean:

46
“Dark Energy” The only possible covariant form for the energy of the (quantum) vacuum; viz., is mathematically equivalent to the cosmological constant. “It is a perfect fluid and precisely spatially uniform” “Vacuum energy is almost the perfect candidate for dark energy.” Craig Roberts: Confinement contains Condensates 46 SP, 7-8/05/12: Perspectives in Non-P QCD - 74pgs “The advent of quantum field theory made consideration of the cosmological constant obligatory not optional.” Michael Turner, “Dark Energy and the New Cosmology”

47
“Dark Energy” QCD vacuum contribution If chiral symmetry breaking is expressed in a nonzero expectation value of the quark bilinear, then the energy difference between the symmetric and broken phases is of order M QCD ≈0.3 GeV One obtains therefrom: Craig Roberts: Confinement contains Condensates 47 SP, 7-8/05/12: Perspectives in Non-P QCD - 74pgs “The biggest embarrassment in theoretical physics.” Mass-scale generated by spacetime-independent condensate Enormous and even greater contribution from Higgs VEV!

Paradigm shift: In-Hadron Condensates Resolution –Whereas it might sometimes be convenient in computational truncation schemes to imagine otherwise, “condensates” do not exist as spacetime-independent mass-scales that fill all spacetime. –So-called vacuum condensates can be understood as a property of hadrons themselves, which is expressed, for example, in their Bethe-Salpeter or light-front wavefunctions. –No qualitative difference between f π and ρ π –And SP, 7-8/05/12: Perspectives in Non-P QCD - 74pgs Craig Roberts: Confinement contains Condensates 58 Chiral limit Brodsky, Roberts, Shrock, Tandy, Phys.

GMOR Relation Valuable to highlight the precise form of the Gell-Mann–Oakes– Renner (GMOR) relation: Eq. (3.4) in Phys.Rev. 175 (1968) 2195Phys.Rev. 175 (1968) 2195 o m π is the pion’s mass o H χsb is that part of the hadronic Hamiltonian density which explicitly breaks chiral symmetry. Crucial to observe that the operator expectation value in this equation is evaluated between pion states. Moreover, the virtual low-energy limit expressed in the equation is purely formal. It does not describe an achievable empirical situation.

GMOR Relation Consequently, in the neighbourhood of the chiral limit This is a QCD derivation of the commonly recognised form of the GMOR relation. Neither PCAC nor soft-pion theorems were employed in the analysis. Nature of each factor in the expression is abundantly clear; viz., chiral limit values of matrix elements that explicitly involve the hadron.

In-Hadron Condensates Plainly, the in-pseudoscalar-meson condensate can be represented through the pseudoscalar meson’s scalar form factor at zero momentum transfer Q 2 = 0. Using an exact mass formula for scalar mesons, one proves the in-scalar-meson condensate can be represented in precisely the same way. By analogy, and with appeal to demonstrable results of heavy-quark symmetry, the Q 2 = 0 values of vector- and pseudovector-meson scalar form factors also determine the in-hadron condensates in these cases. This expression for the concept of in-hadron quark condensates is readily extended to the case of baryons. Via the Q 2 = 0 value of any hadron’s scalar form factor, one can extract the value for a quark condensate in that hadron which is a reasonable and realistic measure of dynamical chiral symmetry breaking.

Confinement Confinement is essential to the validity of the notion of in-hadron condensates. Confinement makes it impossible to construct gluon or quark quasiparticle operators that are nonperturbatively valid. So, although one can define a perturbative (bare) vacuum for QCD, it is impossible to rigorously define a ground state for QCD upon a foundation of gluon and quark quasiparticle operators. Likewise, it is impossible to construct an interacting vacuum – a BCS-like trial state – and hence DCSB in QCD cannot rigorously be expressed via a spacetime-independent coherent state built upon the ground state of perturbative QCD. Whilst this does not prevent one from following this path to build practical models for use in hadron physics phenomenology, it does invalidate any claim that theoretical artifices in such models are empirical.

“ EMPTY space may really be empty. Though quantum theory suggests that a vacuum should be fizzing with particle activity, it turns out that this paradoxical picture of nothingness may not be needed. A calmer view of the vacuum would also help resolve a nagging inconsistency with dark energy, the elusive force thought to be speeding up the expansion of the universe.”dark energy SP, 7-8/05/12: Perspectives in Non-P QCD - 74pgs Craig Roberts: Confinement contains Condensates 72 “Void that is truly empty solves dark energy puzzle” Rachel Courtland, New Scientist 4 th Sept Cosmological Constant: Putting QCD condensates back into hadrons reduces the mismatch between experiment and theory by a factor of Possibly by far more, if technicolour-like theories are the correct paradigm for extending the Standard Model Paradigm shift: In-Hadron Condensates

Simulations with static quarks Mean-field picture of gauge-field action – is not observable –Strongly reminiscent of mean-field – bag model – pictures of the nucleon, popular in 80s. Gauge configurations are instanton-like, and instantons have nothing to do with confinement. What is the dynamically generated confinement length-scale in this simulation? –This is not related in any known way to the length-scale imposed on the simulation by choosing a value of the string tension. Infinitely heavy quarks, repositioned by hand. –Natural size of system constituted from infinitely heavy quarks is radius=0 [ r ~ ln M Q /M Q ] –Therefore, no dynamical information present. What is hadron spectrum associated with this simulation? There are no quarks, so is there a quark-hadron duality? –The latter is critical to the new condensate paradigm. Provide simulation results with realistic quark masses, then one can test the new perspective on condensates … present pictures quite likely represent features of hadron interiors.
