Introduction Nuclear Medium as a Laboratory to Study QCD
Strong Interaction and QCD Strong interaction, running coupling ~1 -- QCD: accepted theory for strong interaction -- asymptotic freedom (2004 Nobel) perturbation calculation works at high energy -- interaction significant at intermediate energy quark-gluon correlations -- interaction strong at low energy confinement -- gluons self interacting A major challenge in fundamental physics: -- Understand QCD in all regions, including strong (confinement) region Fundamental degrees of freedom: quarks, gluons Natural effective degrees of freedom: hadrons -- transition and relation between two pictures E ss
Confinement and Nucleon Colors are confined in hadronic system Can not directly detect quarks/gluons (colored objects) Only hadron (color singlet) properties are observables Observables are gauge invariant Both nucleon and nucleus are good laboratories to study QCD Nucleon: simpler, often can use fundamental DOF to describe processes pQCD, description of hadronic properties in terms of quarks/gluons It is only an approximation at any finite Q2 power (twist) corrections and order (as) corrections Multi-parton correlations Partons in-separable from gluon field due to gauge invariance Beyond co-linear factorization Multi-dimensional structure and distributions Transverse dimension is crucial for complete understanding QCD
Confinement and Hadronization Confinement from a simple experimentalist point of view: DIS directly probe partons, which always hadronize on the way out can not directly detect partons Hadronization is one of the fundamental processes in QCD Colored objects always interact with gluon field/sea to become color neutral before being detected Nuclear medium provides a natural laboratory to study hadronization Understanding cold matter quark propagation important for hot matter study
QCD and Nuclei Most of the strong interaction confined in nucleon, only residual strong interaction remains among nucleons in a nucleus (exponential tail?) Effective N-N interaction with meson exchange Study QCD with nuclei Short range not well understood: Short range correlations Nuclei at extreme conditions: QGP, CGC (gluon saturation) Nuclear medium effects EMC effect Coulomb Sum Rule quenching(?) Form Factor Modification(?) in 4 He Color Transparency Quark propagation in cold and hot nuclear matter
