4 Excerpt from the Top-10  Can we quantitatively understand quark and gluon confinement in quantum chromodynamics and the existence of a mass gap? Quantum chromodynamics, or QCD, is the theory describing the strong nuclear force. Carried by gluons, it binds quarks into particles like protons and neutrons. Apparently, the tiny subparticles are permanently confined: one can't pull a quark or a gluon from a proton because the strong force gets stronger with distance and snaps them right back inside. Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81 Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 4

5 Nuclear Science Advisory Council Long Range Plan  A central goal of nuclear physics is to understand the structure and properties of protons and neutrons, and ultimately atomic nuclei, in terms of the quarks and gluons of QCD  So, what’s the problem? They are legion … –Confinement –Dynamical chiral symmetry breaking –A fundamental theory of unprecedented complexity  QCD defines the difference between nuclear and particle physicists: –Nuclear physicists try to solve this theory –Particle physicists run away to a place where tree-level computations are all that’s necessary; perturbation theory, the last refuge of a scoundrel Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81 Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 5

6 Understanding NSAC’s Long Range Plan Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 6  Do they – can they – correspond to well-defined quasi-particle degrees-of-freedom?  If not, with what should they be replaced? What is the meaning of the NSAC Challenge?  What are the quarks and gluons of QCD?  Is there such a thing as a constituent quark, a constituent-gluon? After all, these are the concepts for which Gell-Mann won the Nobel Prize. Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81

7 DSEs Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 7  Dyson (1949) & Schwinger (1951)... One can derive a system of coupled integral equations relating all the Green functions for a theory, one to another. Gap equation: o fermion self energy o gauge-boson propagator o fermion-gauge-boson vertex  These are nonperturbative equivalents in quantum field theory to the Lagrange equations of motion.  Essential in simplifying the general proof of renormalisability of gauge field theories. Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81

8 Dyson-Schwinger Equations  Well suited to Relativistic Quantum Field Theory  Simplest level: Generating Tool for Perturbation Theory... Materially Reduces Model- Dependence … Statement about long-range behaviour of quark-quark interaction  NonPerturbative, Continuum approach to QCD  Hadrons as Composites of Quarks and Gluons  Qualitative and Quantitative Importance of:  Dynamical Chiral Symmetry Breaking – Generation of fermion mass from nothing  Quark & Gluon Confinement – Coloured objects not detected, Not detectable? Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 8  Approach yields Schwinger functions; i.e., propagators and vertices  Cross-Sections built from Schwinger Functions  Hence, method connects observables with long- range behaviour of the running coupling  Experiment ↔ Theory comparison leads to an understanding of long- range behaviour of strong running-coupling Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81

10 Confinement  Quark and Gluon Confinement –No matter how hard one strikes the proton, or any other hadron, one cannot liberate an individual quark or gluon  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. Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 10 X Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81

11 Confinement  Confinement is expressed through a violent 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); Krein, Roberts & Williams (1992); Tandy (1994); … Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 11 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 Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81 timelike axis: P 2 <0

12 Dressed-gluon propagator  Gluon propagator satisfies a Dyson-Schwinger Equation  Plausible possibilities for the solution  DSE and lattice-QCD agree on the result –Confined gluon –IR-massive but UV-massless –m G ≈ 2-4 Λ QCD Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 12 perturbative, massless gluon massive, unconfined gluon IR-massive but UV-massless, confined gluon A.C. Aguilar et al., Phys.Rev. D80 (2009) Phys.Rev. D80 (2009) Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81

13 Charting the interaction between light-quarks  Confinement can be related to the analytic properties of QCD's Schwinger functions.  Question of light-quark confinement can be translated into the challenge of charting the infrared behavior of QCD's universal β-function –This function may depend on the scheme chosen to renormalise the quantum field theory but it is unique within a given scheme. –Of course, the behaviour of the β-function on the perturbative domain is well known. Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 13 This is a well-posed problem whose solution is an elemental goal of modern hadron physics. The answer provides QCD’s running coupling. Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81

14 Charting the interaction between light-quarks  Through QCD's Dyson-Schwinger equations (DSEs) the pointwise behaviour of the β-function determines the pattern of chiral symmetry breaking.  DSEs connect β-function to experimental observables. Hence, comparison between computations and observations of o Hadron mass spectrum o Elastic and transition form factors can be used to chart β-function’s long-range behaviour.  Extant studies show that the properties of hadron states with masses 1-2GeV are a great deal more sensitive to the long-range behaviour of the β- function than those of the π&ρ ground states. Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 14 Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81

15 DSE Studies – Phenomenology of gluon  Wide-ranging study of π & ρ properties  Effective coupling –Agrees with pQCD in ultraviolet –Saturates in infrared α(0)/π = α(m G 2 )/π = 2 – 4 Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81 Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 15 Qin, Chang, Roberts, et al., in progress at IKP  Running gluon mass –Gluon is massless in ultraviolet in agreement with pQCD –Massive in infrared m G (0) = 0.69 – 0.81 GeV m G (m G 2 ) = 0.30 GeV

17 Dynamical Chiral Symmetry Breaking SStrong-interaction: Q CD CConfinement –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 OOn 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.

18 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.

23 Strong-interaction: QCD  Gluons and quarks acquire momentum-dependent masses –characterised by an infrared mass-scale m ≈ 2-4 Λ QCD  Significant body of work, stretching back to 1980, which shows that, in the presence of DCSB, the dressed-fermion-photon vertex is materially altered from the bare form: γ μ. –Obvious, because with A(p 2 ) ≠ 1 and B(p 2 ) ≠ constant, the bare vertex cannot satisfy the Ward-Takahashi identity; viz.,  Number of contributors is too numerous to list completely (300 citations to 1 st J.S. Ball paper), but prominent contributions by: J.S. Ball, C.J. Burden, C.D. Roberts, R. Delbourgo, A.G. Williams, H.J. Munczek, M.R. Pennington, A. Bashir, A. Kizilersu, L. Chang, Y.-X. Liu … Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 23 Dressed-quark-gluon vertex Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81

24 Dressed- quark-gluon vertex  Single most important feature –Perturbative vertex is helicity-conserving: Cannot cause spin-flip transitions –However, DCSB introduces nonperturbatively generated structures that very strongly break helicity conservation –These contributions Are large when the dressed-quark mass-function is large –Therefore vanish in the ultraviolet; i.e., on the perturbative domain –Exact form of the contributions is still the subject of debate but their existence is model-independent - a fact. Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 24 Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81

25 Gap Equation General Form  D μν (k) – dressed-gluon propagator  Γ ν (q,p) – dressed-quark-gluon vertex  Until 2009, all studies of other hadron phenomena used the leading-order term in a symmetry-preserving truncation scheme; viz., –D μν (k) = dressed, as described previously –Γ ν (q,p) = γ μ … plainly, key nonperturbative effects are missed and cannot be recovered through any step-by-step improvement procedure Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 25 Bender, Roberts & von Smekal Phys.Lett. B380 (1996) 7-12 Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81

26 Gap Equation General Form  D μν (k) – dressed-gluon propagator  good deal of information available  Γ ν (q,p) – dressed-quark-gluon vertex  Information accumulating  Suppose one has in hand – from anywhere – the exact form of the dressed-quark-gluon vertex What is the associated symmetry- preserving Bethe-Salpeter kernel?! Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 26 If kernels of Bethe-Salpeter and gap equations don’t match, one won’t even get right charge for the pion. Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81

27 Bethe-Salpeter Equation Bound-State DSE  K(q,k;P) – fully amputated, two-particle irreducible, quark-antiquark scattering kernel  Textbook material.  Compact. Visually appealing. Correct Blocked progress for more than 60 years. Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 27 Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81

28 Bethe-Salpeter Equation General Form  Equivalent exact bound-state equation but in this form K(q,k;P) → Λ(q,k;P) which is completely determined by dressed-quark self-energy  Enables derivation of a Ward-Takahashi identity for Λ(q,k;P) Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 28 Lei Chang and C.D. Roberts [nucl-th] Phys. Rev. Lett. 103 (2009) Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81

29 Ward-Takahashi Identity Bethe-Salpeter Kernel  Now, for first time, it’s possible to formulate an Ansatz for Bethe-Salpeter kernel given any form for the dressed-quark-gluon vertex by using this identity  This enables the identification and elucidation of a wide range of novel consequences of DCSB Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 29 Lei Chang and C.D.

30 Relativistic quantum mechanics  Dirac equation (1928): Pointlike, massive fermion interacting with electromagnetic field Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 30 Spin Operator Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81

31 Massive point-fermion Anomalous magnetic moment  Dirac’s prediction held true for the electron until improvements in experimental techniques enabled the discovery of a small deviation: H. M. Foley and P. Kusch, Phys. Rev. 73, 412 (1948).Phys. Rev. 73, 412 (1948) –Moment increased by a multiplicative factor: ±  This correction was explained by the first systematic computation using renormalized quantum electrodynamics (QED): J.S. Schwinger, Phys. Rev. 73, 416 (1948),Phys. Rev. 73, 416 (1948) –vertex correction  The agreement with experiment established quantum electrodynamics as a valid tool. Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 31 e e Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81

32 Fermion electromagnetic current – General structure with k = p f - p i  F 1 (k 2 ) – Dirac form factor; and F 2 (k 2 ) – Pauli form factor –Dirac equation: F 1 (k 2 ) = 1 F 2 (k 2 ) = 0 –Schwinger: F 1 (k 2 ) = 1 F 2 (k 2 =0) = α /[2 π] Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 32 Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81

33  Plainly, can’t simply take the limit m → 0.  Standard QED interaction, generated by minimal substitution:  Magnetic moment is described by interaction term: –Invariant under local U(1) gauge transformations –but is not generated by minimal substitution in the action for a free Dirac field.  Transformation properties under chiral rotations? –Ψ(x) → exp(iθγ 5 ) Ψ(x) Magnetic moment of a massless fermion? Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 33 Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81

34  Standard QED interaction, generated by minimal substitution: –Unchanged under chiral rotation –Follows that QED without a fermion mass term is helicity conserving  Magnetic moment interaction is described by interaction term: –NOT invariant –picks up a phase-factor exp(2iθγ 5 )  Magnetic moment interaction is forbidden in a theory with manifest chiral symmetry Magnetic moment of a massless fermion? Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 34 Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81

35 OOne-loop calculation: PPlainly, one obtains Schwinger’s result for m e 2 ≠ 0 HHowever, F 2 (k 2 ) = 0 when m e 2 = 0 TThere is no Gordon identity: RResults are unchanged at every order in perturbation theory … owing to symmetry … magnetic moment interaction is forbidden in a theory with manifest chiral symmetry Schwinger’s result? Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 35 e e m=0 So, no mixing γ μ ↔ σ μν Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81

36 QCD and dressed-quark anomalous magnetic moments  Schwinger’s result for QED:  pQCD: two diagrams o (a) is QED-like o (b) is only possible in QCD – involves 3-gluon vertex  Analyse (a) and (b) o (b) vanishes identically: the 3-gluon vertex does not contribute to a quark’s anomalous chromomag. moment at leading-order o (a) Produces a finite result: “ – ⅙ α s /2π ” ~ (– ⅙) QED-result  But, in QED and QCD, the anomalous chromo- and electro- magnetic moments vanish identically in the chiral limit! Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 36 Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81

37 Dressed-quark anomalous magnetic moments  Three strongly-dressed and essentially- nonperturbative contributions to dressed-quark-gluon vertex: Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 37 DCSB Ball-Chiu term Vanishes if no DCSB Appearance driven by STI Anom. chrom. mag. mom. contribution to vertex Similar properties to BC term Strength commensurate with lattice-QCD Skullerud, Bowman, Kizilersu et al. hep-ph/ L.

38 Dressed-quark anomalous chromomagnetic moment  Lattice-QCD –m = 115 MeV  Nonperturbative result is two orders-of-magnitude larger than the perturbative computation –This level of magnification is typical of DCSB –cf. Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 38 Skullerud, Kizilersu et al.

40 Dressed-quark anomalous magnetic moments Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 40  Formulated and solved general Bethe-Salpeter equation  Obtained dressed electromagnetic vertex  Confined quarks don’t have a mass-shell o Can’t unambiguously define magnetic moments o But can define magnetic moment distribution MEME κ ACM κ AEM Full vertex Rainbow-ladder  AEM is opposite in sign but of roughly equal magnitude as ACM L. Chang, Y. –X. Liu and C.D. Roberts arXiv: [nucl-th] arXiv: [nucl-th] Phys. Rev. Lett. 106 (2011) Factor of 10 magnification Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81

41 Dressed-quark anomalous magnetic moments Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 41  Potentially important for elastic and transition form factors, etc.  Significantly, also quite possibly for muon g-2 – via Box diagram, which is not constrained by extant data. L. Chang, Y. –X. Liu and C.D. Roberts arXiv: [nucl-th] arXiv: [nucl-th] Phys. Rev. Lett. 106 (2011) Factor of 10 magnification  Formulated and solved general Bethe-Salpeter equation  Obtained dressed electromagnetic vertex  Confined quarks don’t have a mass-shell o Can’t unambiguously define magnetic moments o But can define magnetic moment distribution Contemporary theoretical estimates: 1 – 10 x Largest value reduces discrepancy expt.↔theory from 3.3σ to below 2σ.

43 Deep inelastic scattering  Quark discovery experiment at SLAC ( , Nobel Prize in 1990)  Completely different to elastic scattering –Blow the target to pieces instead of keeping only those events where it remains intact.  Cross-section is interpreted as a measurement of the momentum-fraction probability distribution for quarks and gluons within the target hadron: q(x), g(x) Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81 Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 43 Probability that a quark/gluon within the target will carry a fraction x of the bound-state’s light-front momentum Distribution Functions of the Nucleon and Pion in the Valence Region, Roy J.

44 Pion’s valence-quark distributions  Owing to absence of pion targets, the pion’s valence-quark distribution functions are measured via the Drell-Yan process: π p → μ + μ − X  Three experiments: CERN (1983 & 1985) and FNAL (1989). No more recent experiments because theory couldn’t even explain these!  Problem Conway et al. Phys. Rev. D 39, 92 (1989)Phys. Rev. D 39, 92 (1989) Wijesooriya et al. Phys.Rev. C 72 (2005) Phys.Rev.

45 Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81 Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 45

46 Computation of q v π (x)  In the Bjorken limit; viz., q 2 → ∞, P · q → − ∞ but x := −q 2 /2P · q fixed, W μν (q;P) ~ q v π (x)  Plainly, this can be computed given all the information we have at our disposal from the DSEs Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81 Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 46 T+T+ T–T–

47 Computation of q v π (x)  Before the first DSE computation, which used the running dressed-quark mass described previously, numerous authors applied versions of the Nambu–Jona-Lasinio model and were content to reproduce the data, arguing therefrom that the inferences from pQCD were wrong Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81 Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 47 Hecht, Roberts, Schmidt Phys.Rev. C 63 (2001)  After the first DSE computation, experimentalists again became interested in the process because –DSEs agreed with p QCD but disagreed with the data, and other models  Disagreement on the “valence domain,” which is uniquely sensitive to M(p 2 ) 2.61/1.27= factor of 2 in the exponent

48 Reanalysis of q v π (x)  After the first DSE computation, the “Conway et al.” data were reanalysed, this time at next-to-leading-order ( Wijesooriya et al. Phys.Rev. C 72 (2005) )Phys.Rev. C 72 (2005)  The new analysis produced a much larger exponent than initially obtained; viz., β=1.87, but now it disagreed equally with NJL-model results and the DSE prediction NB. Within pQCD, one can readily understand why adding a higher-order correction leads to a suppression of q v π (x) at large-x. Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81 Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 48 Hecht, Roberts, Schmidt Phys.Rev. C 63 (2001)  New experiments were proposed … for accelerators that do not yet exist but the situation remained otherwise unchanged  Until the publication of Distribution Functions of the Nucleon and Pion in the Valence Region, Roy J. Holt and Craig D. Roberts, arXiv: [nucl-th], Rev. Mod. Phys. 82 (2010) pp arXiv: [nucl-th]Rev. Mod. Phys. 82 (2010) pp

49 Reanalysis of q v π (x)  This article emphasised and explained the importance of the persistent discrepancy between the DSE result and experiment as a challenge to QCD  It prompted another reanalysis of the data, which accounted for a long-overlooked effect: viz., “soft-gluon resummation,” –Compared to previous analyses, we include next-to-leading- logarithmic threshold resummation effects in the calculation of the Drell-Yan cross section. As a result of these, we find a considerably softer valence distribution at high momentum fractions x than obtained in previous next-to-leading-order analyses, in line with expectations based on perturbative-QCD counting rules or Dyson- Schwinger equations.

50 Current status of q v π (x)  DSE prediction and modern representation of the data are indistinguishable on the valence-quark domain  Emphasises the value of using a single internally- consistent, well- constrained framework to correlate and unify the description of hadron observables  What about valence- quark distributions in the kaon?

51 q v π (x) & q v K (x)  m s ≈ 24 m u & M s ≈ 1.25 M u Expect the s-quark to carry more of the kaon’s momentum than the u- quark, so that xs K (x) peaks at larger value of x than xu K (x)  Expectation confirmed in computations, with s-quark distribution peaking at 15% larger value of x  Even though deep inelastic scattering is a high-Q 2 process, constituent-like mass-scale explains the shift Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81 Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 51 Trang, Bashir, Roberts & Tandy, “Pion and kaon valence- quark parton distribution functions,” arXiv: [nucl-th], Phys.

Rev. C 83, (R) (2011) [5 pages]arXiv: [nucl-th],Phys. Rev. C 83, (R) (2011) [5 pages] Value of ratio at x=1 is a fixed point of the evolution equations Hence, it’s a very strong test of nonperturbative dynamics Value of ratio at x=0 will approach “1” under evolution to higher resolving scales. This is a feature of perturbative dynamics Using DSEs in QCD, one derives that the x=1 value is ≈ (f π /f K ) 2 (M u /M s ) 4 = 0.3

54 Unification of Meson & Baryon Spectra  Dyson-Schwinger Equations have been applied extensively to the spectrum and interactions of mesons with masses less than 1 GeV  On this domain the rainbow-ladder approximation, which is the leading-order in a systematic & symmetry-preserving truncation scheme – nucl-th/ , is a well-understood tool that is accurate for pseudoscalar and vector mesons:nucl-th/ e.g.,  Prediction of elastic pion and kaon form factors: nucl-th/ nucl-th/  Anomalous neutral pion processes – γπγ & BaBar anomaly: [nucl-th] [nucl-th]  Pion and kaon valence-quark distribution functions: [nucl-th] [nucl-th]  Unification of these and other observables – ππ scattering: hep-ph/ hep-ph/  It can readily be extended to explain properties of the light neutral pseudoscalar mesons: [nucl-th] [nucl-th] Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81 Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 54

55 DSEs & Baryons  Dynamical chiral symmetry breaking (DCSB) – has enormous impact on meson properties.  Must be included in description and prediction of baryon properties.  DCSB is essentially a quantum field theoretical effect. In quantum field theory  Meson appears as pole in four-point quark-antiquark Green function → Bethe-Salpeter Equation  Nucleon appears as a pole in a six-point quark Green function → Faddeev Equation.  Poincaré covariant Faddeev equation sums all possible exchanges and interactions that can take place between three dressed-quarks  Tractable equation is based on the observation that an interaction which describes colour-singlet mesons also generates nonpointlike quark-quark (diquark) correlations in the colour-antitriplet channel Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 55 R.T.

60 T-violation  Invariance under C*P*T is a symmetry of any local quantum field theory  C*P alone is not a symmetry of the Standard Model –Therefore Time-Reversal-Invariance is violated. Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81 Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 60 Hecht, Roberts, Schmidt Phys.Rev. C64 (2001)  Possession of an EDM by J=½ particle is a violation of T-symmetry  Standard Model: |d n,p |< ecm –Current experiment: |d p |<7.9 x ecm & |d n |<1.6 x ecm  Suppose nonzero d p or d n is measured –What is the relation to current-quark EDMs: d u,d,s,… ? –SU(6) Quark Model: d p =⅓(4d u -d d ) & d n =⅓(4d d -d u ) But these are constituent-quark EDMs, which aren’t readily defined in SM!

61 Nucleon EDM  Nucleon EDM described by a third form factor in the photon-nucleon current:  Current-quark EDMs, from any source, will produce nucleon EDM, which can be computed if-and-only-if one has a framework for connecting current-quarks to hadron observables Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81 Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 61 Hecht, Roberts, Schmidt Phys.Rev. C64 (2001)

62 Quark EDMs  Faddeev equation approach  EDM appears in dressed-quark–photon vertex: two possible additions because confined-quarks don’t have a mass-shell – Q= electric- charge matrix m = current-quark mass H ± = diag[h u ±,h d ± ] – current-quark gyroelectric ratios  May now compute relation between h q & h N Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81 Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 62 Hecht, Roberts, Schmidt Phys.Rev.

63 Quark EDMs Nucleon structure factors  Matrix of gyroelectric ratios Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81 Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 63 Hecht, Roberts, Schmidt Phys.Rev. C64 (2001) Structure factors Quark charges Gyroelectric ratios Nonzero because dressed-quarks are not Dirac particles

64 Gyroelectric ratios  Neutron and proton (h N =e/2M N ) related to current-quarks NB. h + = 0 in constituent-quark models coefficient-ratio(h d – /h u – )= 3.4 cf. SU(6) CQMs coefficient-ratio(h d – /h u – )= 2.0 SU(6) is not a good approximation  Example: Charged-Higgs-boson-exchange models yield h d >>h u h n = – 40.6 ( 0.85 h d h d - ) h p = 5.1 ( h d h d - ) Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81 Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 64 Hecht, Roberts, Schmidt Phys.Rev. C64 (2001) Suppose h u >>h d h p = 81.2 ( 0.85 h u h u - )

65 Quark EDMs  The scale of DCSB in QCD amplifies the contribution from a current- quark’s EDM to that of the bound state containing it –minimal enhancement factor is roughly the ratio of the constituent- quark and current-quark masses; two-orders of magnitude –it is understandable and calculable through the necessary momentum dependence of the dressed-quark mass function.  Confinement & compositeness entail that the dressed-quarks comprising bound state are not on shell & hence the two C P- & T- violating operator structures that are indistinguishable in the free- quark limit yield materially different contributions to the EDM of the bound state. –These operator structures must be analysed and their strengths determined independently in any model that provides for C P and T violation.  Both these effects should be accounted for in using d N as a means of constraining extensions of the Standard Model.

73 Dichotomy of the pion Craig Roberts: A Year in the life of DSEs 73  How does one make an almost massless particle from two massive constituent-quarks?  Naturally, one could always tune a potential in quantum mechanics so that the ground-state is massless – but some are still making this mistake  However: current-algebra (1968)  This is impossible in quantum mechanics, for which one always finds: Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81

QCD’s current-quarks were not yet invented, so u 0 was not expressed in terms of current-quark fields  PCAC-hypothesis (partial conservation of axial current) is used in the derivation  Subsequently, the concepts of soft-pion theory  Operator expectation values do not change as t=m π 2 → t=0 to take → … in-pion → in-vacuum Forschungszentrum Julich, IKP: 20 July. 71/81 Behavior of current divergences under SU(3) x SU(3).

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.

80 Universal Misapprehensions  Since 1979, DCSB has commonly been associated literally with a spacetime- independent mass-dimension-three “vacuum condensate.”  Under this assumption, “condensates” couple directly to gravity in general relativity and make an enormous contribution to the cosmological constant  Experimentally, the answer is Ω cosm. const. = 0.76  This mismatch is a bit of a problem.
