5
5 The Problem However, in the low-energy meson spectrum, we have not seen such symmetry patterns. The natural question is how these (exact or approximate) symmetries are broken (explicitly or spontaneously)?

7 Effective Lagrangian Based on Loop Regularization Y.B. Dai and Y-L. Wu, Euro. Phys. J. C 39 s1 (2004) Note that the field Φ has no kinetic terms, so it is an auxiliary field and can be integrated out.

8 Dynamically Generated Spontaneous Symmetry Breaking Instead, if we integrate out the quark fields, we can obtain the following effective potential.

9
9 Dynamically Generated Spontaneous Symmetry Breaking Recall that the pseudoscalar mesons, such as π,η, are much lighter than their scalar chiral partners. This indicates that we should choose our vacuum expectation values (VEVs) in the scalar fields:

10
10 Dynamically Generated Spontaneous Symmetry Breaking By differentiating the effective potential w.r.t. the VEVs, we obtain the following Minimal Conditions/Generalized Gap Equations: If we take the limit of vanishing instanton effects, we can recover the usual gap equation

19 Motivation Provided that chiral dynamical model works so well to show chiral symmetry breaking and to predict the meson spectrum, we want to see what happens for this model at finite temperature -- Chiral symmetry will be restored at high enough temperature

23
23 Dynamically Generated Spontaneous Symmetry Breaking Recall that the pseudoscalar mesons, such as π,η, are much lighter than their scalar chiral partners. This indicates that we should choose our vacuum expectation values (VEVs) in the scalar fields:

24
24 Dynamically Generated Spontaneous Symmetry Breaking By differentiating the effective potential with respect to the VEVs, we can obtain: After we take the limit of zero current quark masses, the gap equation can be simplified to

25
25 Critical Temperature For Chiral Symmetry Restoration In order to determine the critical temperature for chiral symmetry restoration, we need to make the following assumption: Note that μ f 2 (T) is the coupling of the four quark interaction in our model. In principle this interaction comes by integrating out the gluon fields. Thus, this assumption indicates that the low energy gluon dynamics have the same finite temperature dependence as the quark field.

26
26 Critical Temperature For Chiral Symmetry Restoration With the above assumption, we can determine the critical temperature for chiral symmetry restoration in the chiral thermodynamic model (CTDM)

34 Chiral Symmetry Restoration at Finite Temperature This feature can be traced back to the fact that all of these quantities are proportional to the VEV near the critical temperature All of these quantities have the same scaling behavior near the critical temperature,

35
35 Summary and Outlook In the simple chiral dynamical model, Prof. Dai and Prof. Wu derived a consistent spectrum of lowest lying meson states. Within this model, we discuss the chiral symmetry restoration at finite temperature by determining the critical temperature and critical behavior of some characteristic quantities. In the future work, we need to consider finite chemical potential effects. Also, we also want to extend the current work into three flavor case and consider instanton finite temperature effects.
