10  All composite systems have “Form Factors”, which describe the distribution of an observable quantity amongst the constituents. Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 10

11  Exploit opportunities provided by new data on hadron elastic and transition form factors –Chart infrared evolution of QCD’s coupling and dressed-masses –Reveal correlations that are key to nucleon structure –Expose the facts and fallacies in modern descriptions of hadron structure Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 11

12  Quarks were discovered in deep inelastic scattering experiments at SLAC, more than 40yrs ago.  We are finally acquiring the tools and expertise necessary to compute the distributions that are measured in such experiments. Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 12

13  Precision experimental study of (far) valence region (Bjorken-x > 0.5), and theoretical computation of distribution functions and distribution amplitudes –Computation is critical –Without it, no amount of data will reveal anything about the theory underlying the phenomena of strong interaction physics within the Standard Model Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 13 Parton distribution functions (PDFs) and distribution amplitudes (PDAs) are a quantum field theory analogue of wave functions. They have a probability interpretation and hence relate to concepts familiar from quantum mechanics.

17  Very likely a self-contained, nonperturbatively renormalisable and hence well defined Quantum Field Theory This is not true of QED – cannot be defined nonperturbatively  No confirmed breakdown over an enormous energy domain: 0 GeV < E < 8000 GeV  Increasingly likely that any extension of the Standard Model will be based on the paradigm established by QCD –Extended Technicolour: electroweak symmetry breaks via a fermion bilinear operator in a strongly-interacting non-Abelian theory. ( Andersen et al. “Discovering Technicolor” Eur.Phys.J.Plus 126 (2011) 81 )Eur.Phys.J.Plus 126 (2011) 81 Higgs sector of the SM becomes an effective description of a more fundamental fermionic theory, similar to the Ginzburg- Landau theory of superconductivity Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 17

18 What is QCD?  Lagrangian of QCD –G = gluon fields –Ψ = quark fields  The key to complexity in QCD … gluon field strength tensor  Generates gluon self-interactions, whose consequences are quite extraordinary Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 18

19  QED is the archetypal gauge field theory  Perturbatively simple but nonperturbatively undefined  Chracteristic feature: Light-by-light scattering; i.e., photon-photon interaction – leading-order contribution takes place at order α 4. Extremely small probability because α 4 ≈10 -9 ! cf.Quantum Electrodynamics Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 19

20 Relativistic Quantum Gauge Field Theory:  Interactions mediated by vector boson exchange  Vector bosons are perturbatively-massless  Similar interaction in QED  Special feature of QCD – gluon self-interactions What is QCD?

21 Strong-interaction: QCD  Asymptotically free –Perturbation theory is valid and accurate tool at large-Q 2 –Hence chiral limit is defined  Essentially nonperturbative for Q 2 < 2 GeV 2 Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 21  Nature’s only (now known) example of a truly nonperturbative, fundamental theory  A-priori, no idea as to what such a theory can produce

23 Light quarks & Confinement A unit area placed midway between the quarks and perpendicular to the line connecting them intercepts a constant number of field lines, independent of the distance between the quarks. This leads to a constant force between the quarks – and a large force at that, equal to about 16 metric tons.” Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 23  Folklore … JLab Hall-D Conceptual Design Report(5) “The color field lines between a quark and an anti-quark form flux tubes.

24 Light quarks & Confinement  Problem: 16 tonnes of force makes a lot of pions. Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 24

25 Light quarks & Confinement  Problem: 16 tonnes of force makes a lot of pions. Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 25

26 Light quarks & Confinement  In the presence of light quarks, pair creation seems to occur non-localized and instantaneously  No flux tube in a theory with light- quarks.  Flux-tube is not the correct paradigm for confinement in hadron physics Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 26 G. Bali et al., PoS LAT2005 (2006) 308PoS LAT2005 (2006) 308

27 Confinement  QFT Paradigm: –Confinement is expressed through a dramatic change in the analytic structure of propagators for coloured states –It can almost be read from a plot of the dressed- propagator for a coloured state Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 27 complex-P 2 o Real-axis mass-pole splits, moving into pair(s) of complex conjugate singularities, (or other qualitatively analogous structures chracterised by a dynamically generated mass-scale) o State described by rapidly damped wave & hence state cannot exist in observable spectrum Normal particle Confined particle timelike axis: P 2 <0 s ≈ 1/Im(m) ≈ 1/2Λ QCD ≈ ½fm

28 Light quarks & Confinement  In the study of hadrons, attention should turn from equal-time potential models toward the continuum bound-state problem in quantum field theory  Such approaches offer the possibility of posing simultaneously the questions –What is confinement? –What is dynamical chiral symmetry breaking? –How are they related? –What are their empirical signals?

31 Dynamical Chiral Symmetry Breaking  DCSB is a fact in QCD –Dynamical, not spontaneous Add nothing to QCD, no Higgs field, nothing! Effect achieved purely through the quark+gluon dynamics. –It’s the most important mass generating mechanism for visible matter in the Universe. Responsible for ≈98% of the proton’s mass. Higgs mechanism is ( almost ) irrelevant to light-quarks. Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 31

32 DCSB Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 32 Mass from nothing! Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 C.D. Roberts, Prog. Part. Nucl. Phys. 61 (2008) 50Prog. Part. Nucl. Phys. 61 (2008) 50 M. Bhagwat & P.C. Tandy, AIP Conf.Proc. 842 (2006) AIP Conf.Proc. 842 (2006)  In QCD, all “constants” of quantum mechanics are actually strongly momentum dependent: couplings, number density, mass, etc.  So, a quark’s mass depends on its momentum.  Mass function can be calculated and is depicted here.  Continuum- and Lattice-QCD are in agreement: the vast bulk of the light-quark mass comes from a cloud of gluons, dragged along by the quark as it propagates.

35 “Orthodox Vacuum”  Vacuum = “frothing sea”  Hadrons = bubbles in that “sea”, containing nothing but quarks & gluons interacting perturbatively, unless they’re near the bubble’s boundary, whereat they feel they’re trapped!

36 However, just like gluons and quarks, and for the same reasons: Condensates are confined within hadrons. There are no vacuum condensates. Historically, DCSB came to be associated with a presumed existence of spacetime- independent condensates that permeated the universe. Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 36

37 Spontaneous(Dynamical) Chiral Symmetry Breaking The 2008 Nobel Prize in Physics was divided, one half awarded to Yoichiro Nambu "for the discovery of the mechanism of spontaneous broken symmetry in subatomic physics" Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 37 Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013

38 Nambu – Jona-Lasinio Model Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 38  Treats a chirally-invariant four-fermion Lagrangian & solves the gap equation in Hartree-Fock approximation (analogous to rainbow truncation)  Possibility of dynamical generation of nucleon mass is elucidated  Essentially inequivalent vacuum states are identified (Wigner and Nambu states) & demonstration that there are infinitely many, degenerate but distinct Nambu vacua, related by a chiral rotation  Nontrivial Vacuum is “Born” Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Dynamical Model of Elementary Particles Based on an Analogy with Superconductivity. I Y. Nambu and G. Jona-Lasinio, Phys. Rev. 122 (1961) 345–358 Dynamical Model Of Elementary Particles Based On An Analogy With Superconductivity. II Y. Nambu, G. Jona-Lasinio, Phys.Rev. 124 (1961)

39 Original Note of Warning Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 39 Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 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.

40 QCD Sum Rules  Introduction of the gluon vacuum condensate and development of “sum rules” relating properties of low-lying hadronic states to vacuum condensates Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 40 Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 QCD and Resonance Physics.

41 QCD Sum Rules  Introduction of the gluon vacuum condensate and development of “sum rules” relating properties of low-lying hadronic states to vacuum condensates  At this point (1979), the cat was out of the bag: a physical reality was seriously attributed to a plethora of vacuum condensates Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 41 Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 QCD and Resonance Physics.

43 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.” Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 43

44 Overview  Worth noting that nonzero vacuum expectation values of local operators in QCD—the so-called vacuum condensates—are phenomenological parameters, which were introduced at a time of limited computational resources in order to assist with the theoretical estimation of essentially nonperturbative strong- interaction matrix elements.  A universality of these condensates was assumed, namely, that the properties of all hadrons could be expanded in terms of the same condensates. While this helps to retard proliferation, there are nevertheless infinitely many of them.  As qualities associated with an unmeasurable state (the vacuum), such condensates do not admit direct measurement. Practitioners have attempted to assign values to them via an internally consistent treatment of many separate empirical observables.  However, only one, the so-called quark condensate, is attributed a value with any confidence. Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 44

45 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? Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 45 Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October

46 QCDQCD Why does it matter? Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 46 Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October

47 “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. Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 47 Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013

48 “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. Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 48 Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013  In order to have escaped detection, the missing energy must be smoothly distributed.  Contemporary cosmological observations mean:

49 “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.” Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 49 Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 “The advent of quantum field theory made consideration of the cosmological constant obligatory not optional.” Michael Turner, “Dark Energy and the New Cosmology”

50 “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: Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 50 Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 “The biggest embarrassment in theoretical physics.” Mass-scale generated by spacetime-independent condensate Enormous and even greater contribution from Higgs VEV!

51 Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 51

52 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.  The operator expectation value in this equation is evaluated between pion states.

55 Gell-Mann Oakes Renner Relation  Demonstrated algebraically that the so-called Gell-Mann – Oakes – Renner relation is the following statement Namely, the mass of the pion is completely determined by the pion’s scalar form factor at zero momentum transfer Q 2 = 0. Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 55

56 Hadron Charges  Hadron Form factor matrix elements  Scalar charge of a hadron is an intrinsic property of that hadron … no more a property of the vacuum than the hadron’s electric charge, axial charge, tensor charge, etc. … Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 56

60 “ 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 Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 60 “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

62 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) Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 62 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.

63 Parton Structure of Hadrons  Valence-quark structure of hadrons –Definitive of a hadron. After all, it’s how we distinguish a proton from a neutron –Expresses charge; flavour; baryon number; and other Poincaré-invariant macroscopic quantum numbers –Via evolution, determines background at LHC  Sea-quark distributions –Flavour content, asymmetry, intrinsic: yes or no?  Answers are essentially nonperturbative features of QCD Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 63

64 Parton Structure of Hadrons  Light front provides a link with quantum mechanics –If a probability interpretation is ever valid, then it’s in the infinite-momentum frame  Enormous amount of intuitively expressive information about hadrons & processes involving them is encoded in –Parton distribution functions –Generalised parton distribution functions –Transverse-momentum-dependent parton distribution functions  Information will be revealed by the measurement of these functions – so long as they can be calculated Success of programme demands very close collaboration between experiment and theory Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 64

65  Exact expression in QCD for the pion’s valence-quark parton distribution amplitude  Expression is Poincaré invariant but a probability interpretation is only valid on the light-front because only thereupon does one have particle-number conservation.  Probability that a valence-quark or antiquark carries a fraction x=k + / P + of the pion’s light-front momentum { n 2 =0, n.P = -m π } Pion’s valence-quark Distribution Amplitude Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 65 Pion’s Bethe-Salpeter wave function Whenever a nonrelativistic limit is realistic, this would correspond to the Schroedinger wave function.

66 Pion’s valence-quark Distribution Amplitude  Methods have recently been developed to compute φ π (x); viz., the projection of the pion’s Poincaré-covariant wave-function onto the light-front  Results have been obtained with rainbow-ladder DSE kernel, simplest symmetry preserving form; and the best DCSB-improved kernel that is currently available. x α (1-x) α, with α=0.3 Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 66 Imaging dynamical chiral symmetry breaking: pion wave function on the light front, Lei Chang, et al., arXiv: [nucl-th], Phys.

71 Form Factors Elastic Scattering Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 71  Elastic Form factors have long been recognised as a basic tool for elucidating bound-state properties.  They are of particular value in hadron physics because they provide information on structure as a function of Q 2, the squared momentum-transfer: –Small-Q 2 is the nonperturbative domain –Large-Q 2 is the perturbative domain –Nonperturbative methods in hadron physics must explain the behaviour from Q 2 =0 through the transition domain, whereupon the behaviour is currently being measured  Experimental and theoretical studies of hadron electromagnetic form factors have made rapid and significant progress during the last several years, including new data in the time like region, and material gains have been made in studying the pion form factor.

Qin, L. Chang et al. Phys.Rev. C84 (2011) (R) Phys.Rev. C84 (2011) (R)  New prediction in better agreement with available data than old DSE result  Prediction extends from Q 2 =0 to arbitrarily large Q 2, without interruption, unifying both domains DSE 2000 … Breakdown here Pion electromagnetic form factor at spacelike momenta L.

79 Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 79  Predict a maximum at 6-GeV 2, which lies within domain that is accessible to JLab12  Difficult, however, to distinguish DSE prediction from Amendolia-1986 monopole  What about comparison with perturbative QCD?

80 Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 80  Prediction of pQCD obtained when the pion valence-quark PDA has the form appropriate to the scale accessible in modern experiments is markedly different from the result obtained using the asymptotic PDA  Near agreement between the pertinent perturbative QCD prediction and DSE prediction is striking. DSE 2013 pQCD obtained with φ π asy (x) pQCD obtained with φ π (x;2GeV), i.e., the PDA appropriate to the scale of the experiment 15%  Single DSE interaction kernel, determined fully by just one parameter and preserving the one-loop renormalisation group behaviour of QCD, has unified the F π (Q 2 ) and φ π (x) (and numerous other quantities) Pion electromagnetic form factor at spacelike momenta L. Chang, I. C. Cloët, C. D. Roberts, S. M. Schmidt and P. C. Tandy, arXiv: [nucl-th], Phys. Rev. Lett. 111, (2013) arXiv: [nucl-th]Phys. Rev. Lett. 111, (2013)

81 Craig Roberts: USTC Hefei, October 2013 Prospects for the physics of cold, sparse hadrons (87p) 81  Leading-order, leading-twist QCD prediction, obtained with φ π (x) evaluated at a scale appropriate to the experiment underestimates DSE-2013 prediction by merely an approximately uniform 15%.  Small mismatch is explained by a combination of higher- order, higher-twist corrections & and shortcomings in the rainbow-ladder truncation. DSE 2013 pQCD obtained with φ π asy (x) pQCD obtained φ π (x;2GeV), i.e., the PDA appropriate to the scale of the experiment 15%  Hence, one should expect dominance of hard contributions to the pion form factor for Q 2 >8GeV 2.  Nevertheless, the normalisation of the form factor is fixed by a pion wave- function whose dilation with respect to φ π asy (x) is a definitive signature of DCSB Pion electromagnetic form factor at spacelike momenta L.
