Recently it is claimed that there is a significant systematic error from excited state contributions in the nucleus correlation functions by comparing with calculations using the exponential and wall source operators. However, the wall source result is obtained in much earlier time than the plateau region. In order to investigate the systematic error in the plateau region, we calculate the correlation functions with both the operators in quenched QCD at 0. Read More

We study single-particle potential of hyperons in nuclear medium starting from QCD. First we carry out lattice QCD numerical simulation to extract baryon-baryon interactions from QCD by means of the HAL QCD method. We employ a full QCD gauge configuration ensemble at almost physical point so that hadron masses are nearly physical, e. Read More

We make a detailed comparison between the direct method and the HAL QCD potential method for the baryon-baryon interactions, taking the $\Xi\Xi$ system at $m_\pi= 0.51$ GeV in 2+1 flavor QCD and using both smeared and wall quark sources. The energy shift $\Delta E_\mathrm{eff}(t)$ in the direct method shows the strong dependence on the choice of quark source operators, which means that the results with either (or both) source are false.

We present our recent effort to develop a GPGPU program to calculate 52 channels of the Nambu-Bethe-Salpeter (NBS) wave functions in order to study the baryon interactions, from nucleon-nucleon to $\Xi-\Xi$, from lattice QCD. We adopt CUDA programming to perform the multi-GPU execution on a hybrid parallel programming with MPI and OpenMP. Effective baryon block algorithm is briefly outlined, which calculates efficaciously a large number of NBS wave functions at a time, and three CUDA kernel programs are implemented to materialize the effective baryon block algorithm using GPUs on the single-program multiple-data (SPMD) programming model.

We investigate the s-wave $\Lambda_c-N$ interaction for spin singlet systems($^1S_0$) using the HAL QCD method. In our lattice QCD simulations, we employ gauge configurations generated by the PACS-CS Collaboration at $a = 0.0907(13)$ fm on a $32^3 \times 64$ lattice ($La = 2. Read More

We present our result of binding energy of light nuclei with the nuclear mass number less than or equal to four at the pion mass $m_\pi = 0.3$ GeV. The simulations are performed in $N_f=2+1$ QCD with Iwasaki gauge and a non-perturbative improved Wilson quark actions at the lattice spacing of $a = 0. Read More

We have presented a strategy to study nuclei and nuclear matters from first principles, namely, from QCD. We first compute nucleon-nucleon potentials numerically in lattice QCD, and then use them to investigate properties of nuclei and nuclear matter by various methods developed in nuclear physics. As a demonstration that this strategy works, mass and structure of ^4^He, ^16^O and ^40^Ca, and equation of state of nuclear matters are determined with the lattice QCD induced two-nucleon potentials in a heavy quark region as an input.

A comparative study between the L\"uscher's finite volume method and the time-dependent HAL QCD method is given for the $\Xi\Xi$($^1\mathrm{S}_0$) interaction as an illustrative example. By employing the smeared source and the wall source for the interpolating operators, we show that the effective energy shifts $\Delta E_{\rm eff} (t)$ in L\"uscher's method do not agree between different sources, yet both exhibit fake plateaux. On the other hand, the interaction kernels $V(\vec{r})$ obtained from the two sources in the HAL QCD method agree with each other already for modest values of $t$. Read More

The LUX dark matter search experiment is a 350 kg dual-phase xenon time projection chamber located at the 4850 ft level of the Sanford Underground Research Facility in Lead, SD. The success of two-phase xenon detectors for dark matter searches relies on their ability to distinguish electron recoil (ER) background events from nuclear recoil (NR) signal events. Typically, the NR-ER discrimination is obtained from the ratio of the electroluminescence light (S2) to the prompt scintillation light (S1). Read More

The branching fraction of the rare decay $\Lambda_b^0 \rightarrow \Lambda \mu^+ \mu^-$ is measured as a function of $q^2$, the square of the dimuon invariant mass. The analysis is performed using proton-proton collision data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.0 fb$^{-1}$, collected by the LHCb experiment. Read More

Using 482 pb$^{-1}$ of data taken at $\sqrt{s}=4.009$ GeV, we measure the branching fractions of the decays of $D^{*0}$ into $D^0\pi^0$ and $D^0\gamma$ to be $\BR(D^{*0} \to D^0\pi^0)=(65.5\pm 0. Read More

Heavy quarks, i.e. charm and beauty, are considered calibrated probes for the strongly interacting deconfined medium (Quark Gluon Plasma, QGP) formed in heavy-ion collisions. Read More

We present a method to extract the spectrum of two-particle systems on the lattice from wave functions computed in lattice simulations. The energies of the Hamiltonian eigenstates are extracted from the eigenvalues of a matrix, similar to a potential, constrained by the wave functions. This method is compared with the traditional variational method in the isospin 2 $\pi\pi$ system. Read More

Nucleon matters are studied based on QCD. We extract nucleon-nucleon interaction from lattice QCD simulations in a recently developed approach, and then derive the equations of state of the symmetric nuclear matter and the pure neutron matter, at zero temperature, in the Brueckner-Hartree-Fock framework. We find that QCD reproduce known features of the symmetric nuclear matter, such as the self-binding and saturation, at some values of quark mass. Read More

We present a lattice QCD study for the cutoff effects on nuclear forces. Two-nucleon forces are determined from Nambu-Bethe-Salpeter (NBS) wave functions using the HAL QCD method. Lattice QCD simulations are performed employing N_f = 2 clover fermion configurations at three lattice spacings of a = 0. Read More

We present preliminary results of a new approach to the study of the pion-pion system in the I=1 channel. The Bethe-Salpeter wave function of the two-pion system is computed on the ground state and the first excited state. From these, we attempt to extract an interaction kernel (potential) which can then be used to extract observables such as the phase shifts. Read More

After a brief review of discovery of the H-dibaryon in lattice QCD, effect of the flavor SU(3) symmetry breaking on the H-dibaryon is studied by basing on the baryon-baryon (BB) interactions extracted from QCD on the lattice. The Schrodinger equation for Lambda Lambda - N Xi -Sigma Sigma coupled-channel is solved with the physical baryon masses and the potentials obtained from QCD at the flavor SU(3) limit. A resonant H-dibaryon is found between Lambda Lambda and N Xi thresholds in this treatment. Read More

We review recent lattice QCD activities with emphasis on the impact on nuclear physics. In particular, the progress toward the determination of nuclear and baryonic forces (potentials) using Nambu-Bethe-Salpeter (NBS) wave functions is presented. We discuss major challenges for multi-baryon systems on the lattice: (i) signal to noise issue and (ii) computational cost issue. Read More

We report the recent progress on the determination of three-nucleon forces (3NF) in lattice QCD. We utilize the Nambu-Bethe-Salpeter (NBS) wave function to define the potential in quantum field theory, and extract two-nucleon forces (2NF) and 3NF on equal footing. The enormous computational cost for calculating multi-baryon correlators on the lattice is drastically reduced by developing a novel contraction algorithm (the unified contraction algorithm).

Measurement of electrons from heavy quarks by PHENIX has been done for various collision species and energy.PHENIX has measured single electron spectra from heavy flavor decays in Au+Au collisions at $sqrt{S_{NN}} = 200$ GeV.The measurement of heavy flavor production for p + p in PHENIX has also been measured which provided the baseline for studying hot and dense matter effects in heavy ion reactions.

We present our recent studies on hyperon-nucleon (YN) interactions in the strangeness S=-1 that $p\Lambda, \Sigma^0 p$ and $\Sigma^+ n$, by extracting corresponding potentials through Nambu-Bethe-Salpeter wave functions. We calculate $\Lambda N$ and $\Sigma N$ potentials in the isospin I=3/2 channel, using the $N_f=2+1$ gauge configurations generated by PACS-CS collaboration and employing an improved method to obtain potentials in lattice QCD simulations. For the $^1S_0$ channel, the central $\Sigma N (I=3/2, ^1S_0)$ potential and the central $\Lambda N (^1S_0)$ potential are found to be very similar. Read More

We report a measurement of the CP violation in B^0 -> J/\psi K^0_S decays. We perform a time-dependent analysis of the decays reconstructed in 35/pb of LHCb data that was taken in 2010. We measure the CP asymmetry parameter Read More

We present results on the chiral transition temperature Tc in 2+1 flavor QCD extrapolated to the continuum limit and the physical light quark mass. The extrapolations are based on the data from simulations on lattices with temporal extent Ntau=6, 8 and 12 with the HISQ/tree and Ntau=8 and 12 with the asqtad action. The chiral transition is analyzed in terms of universal O(N) scaling functions. Read More

We explore three-nucleon forces (3NF) from lattice QCD simulations. Utilizing the Nambu-Bethe-Salpeter (NBS) wave function, two-nucleon forces (2NF) and 3NF are determined on the same footing. Quantum numbers of the three-nucleon (3N) system are chosen to be (I, J^P)=(1/2,1/2^+) (the triton channel). Read More

Using a new method recently proposed by the HAL QCD collaboration to study hadron interactions in lattice QCD, we investigate a possibility for an existence of the H-dibaryon in the flavor SU(3) symmetric world. A potential for the flavor-singlet baryon-baryon channel is derived from the Nambu-Bethe-Salpeter wave function, and the elusive H-dibaryon is shown to be a bound state, with the binding energy of 20--50 MeV for the pseudo-scalar meson masses in the range that 469--1171 MeV. Read More

We perform a lattice QCD study of the $\rho$ meson decay from the $N_f=2+1$ full QCD configurations generated with a renormalization group improved gauge action and a non-perturbatively $O(a)$-improved Wilson fermion action. The resonance parameters, the effective $\rho\to\pi\pi$ coupling constant and the resonance mass, are estimated from the $P$-wave scattering phase shift for the isospin I=1 two-pion system. The finite size formulas are employed to calculate the phase shift from the energy on the lattice. Read More

We investigate three-nucleon forces (3NF) from lattice QCD simulations, utilizing the Nambu-Bethe-Salpeter (NBS) wave function to determine two-nucleon forces (2NF) and 3NF on the same footing. Quantum numbers of the three-nucleon (3N) system are chosen to be (I, J^P)=(1/2, 1/2^+) (the triton channel). We consider the simplest geometrical configuration where 3N are aligned linearly with an equal spacing, to reduce the enormous computational cost. Read More

Existence of the H-dibaryon in the flavor SU(3) symmetric limit is studied by full QCD simulations on the lattice, in the approach recently developed for the baryon-baryon (BB) interactions. Potential of the flavor-singlet BB channel is derived from the Nambu-Bethe-Salpeter wave function, and a bound H-dibaryon is discovered from it, with the binding energy of 20--50 MeV for the pseudo-scalar meson mass of 469--1171 MeV.

Double Chooz experiment will search for a disappearance of the reactor neutrinos from Chooz reactor cores in Ardenne, France, in order to detect the yet unknown neutrino oscillation angle \theta 13. The far detector was completed in 2010 and data-taking has started in spring 2011. Status of data-taking is presented and some performance plots from physics data are shown in this paper for the first time. Read More

The transverse momentum pT spectra of charged particles is measured by CMS as a function of collision centrality in PbPb collisions at sqrt(sNN) = 2.76 TeV. The results are compared to a pp reference spectrum, constructed by interpolation between sqrt(s) = 0. Read More

Three-nucleon forces (3NF) are investigated from two-flavor lattice QCD simulations. We utilize the Nambu-Bethe-Salpeter (NBS) wave function to determine two-nucleon forces (2NF) and 3NF in the same framework. As a first exploratory study, we extract 3NF in which three nucleons are aligned linearly with an equal spacing. Read More

We study the three nucleon force in Nf=2 dynamical clover fermion lattice QCD, utilizing the Nambu-Bethe-Salpeter wave function of the three nucleon system. Since parity-odd two nucleon potentials are not available in lattice QCD at this moment, we develop a new formulation to extract the genuine three nucleon force which requires only the information of parity-even two nucleon potentials. In order to handle the extremely expensive calculation cost, we consider a specific three-dimensional coordinate configuration for the three nucleons. Read More

An extension of the Luscher's finite volume method above inelastic thresholds is proposed. It is fulfilled by extendind the procedure recently proposed by HAL-QCD Collaboration for a single channel system. Focusing on the asymptotic behaviors of the Nambu-Bethe-Salpeter (NBS) wave functions (equal-time) near spatial infinity, a coupled channel extension of effective Schrodinger equation is constructed by introducing an energy-independent interaction kernel. Read More

The EDELWEISS-II experiment uses cryogenic heat-and-ionization Germanium detectors in order to detect the rare interactions from WIMP dark matter particles of local halo. New-generation detec- tors with an interleaved electrode geometry were developped and validated, enabling an outstanding gamma-ray and surface interaction rejection. We present here preliminary results of a one-year WIMP search carried out with 10 of such detectors in the Laboratoire Souterrain de Modane. Read More

We investigate baryon-baryon (BB) interactions in the 3-flavor full QCD simulations with degenerate quark masses for all flavors. The BB potentials in the orbital S-wave are extracted from the Nambu-Bethe-Salpeter wave functions measured on the lattice. We observe strong flavor-spin dependences of the BB potentials at short distances. Read More

We study the three nucleon force in the triton channel using dynamical clover fermion lattice QCD. The Nambu-Bethe-Salpeter wave function is utilized to obtain the potentials among three nucleons. Since the straightforward calculation is prohibitively expensive, two different frameworks are developed to meet the challenge. Read More

We describe plans for a search for long-lived particles which will become stopped by the CMS detector. We will look for the subsequent decay of these particles during time intervals where there are no $pp$ collisions in CMS: during gaps between crossings in the LHC beam structure, and during inter-fill periods between the beam being dumped and re-injection. Such long living particles decays will be recorded with dedicated calorimeter triggers. Read More

The $S$-wave $\pi K$ scattering lengths are calculated for both the isospin 1/2 and 3/2 channels in the lattice QCD by using the finite size formula. We perform the calculation with $N_f=2+1$ gauge configurations generated on $32^3 \times 64$ lattice using the Iwasaki gauge action and nonperturbatively $O(a)$-improved Wilson action at $1/a = 2.17$ GeV.

Measurements of differential branching fraction, isospin asymmetr y, $K^*$ polarization, and forward-backward asymmetry as functions of $q^2$ for $B \to K^{(*)}ll$ decays are reported. For the results of the radiative process, we report measurements of branching fractions for inclusive $B\to X_s \gamma$ and the exclusive $B\to K \eta' \gamma$ modes. Read More

The large values of the transverse single spin asymmetry, A_N, seen in forward pi0 production from polarized proton collisions have stimulated important questions and have been studied in QCD based transverse spin models.

Two of recent progress in lattice QCD approach to nuclear force are reported. (i) Tensor force from quenched lattice QCD: By truncating the derivative expansion of inter-nucleon potential to the strictly local terms, we obtain central force V_C(r) and tensor force V_T(r) separately from s-wave and d-wave components of Bethe-Salpeter wave function for two nucleon state with J^P=1^+. Numerical calculation is performed with quenched QCD on 32^4 lattice using the standard plaquette action at beta=5. Read More

We study the $\Lambda$-nucleon ($\Lambda N$) force by using lattice QCD. The Bethe-Salpeter amplitude is calculated for the lowest scattering state of the $\Lambda N$ so as to obtain the $\Lambda N$ potential. The numerical calculation is twofold: (i) Full lattice QCD by using 2+1 flavor PACS-CS gauge configurations with, $\beta=1. Read More

Bose-Einstein correlations of identical charged-pion pairs produced in hadronic Z decays are analyzed in terms of various parametrizations. The tau-model with a one-sided L\'evy proper-time distribution provides a good description, enabling the source function to be reconstructed. Read More

We discuss the Taylor expansion approach to non-zero baryon chemical potential ($\mu_B$) and present results on expanion coefficients of the pressure and energy density up to the 6-th order in $\mu_B$. Calculations have been performed with (2+1)-flavor of improved staggerd fermions (p4fat3) and almost physical masses on lattices with temporal extent of four and six time slices. We use the expansion coefficients to construct the isentropic equation of state on lines of constant entropy per baryon number and various different hadronic fluctuations. Read More

We calculate the nucleon sigma term in two-flavor lattice QCD utilizing the Feynman-Hellman theorem. Both sea and valence quarks are described by the overlap fermion formulation, which preserves exact chiral and flavor symmetries on the lattice. We analyse the lattice data for the nucleon mass using the analytical formulae derived from the baryon chiral perturbation theory. Read More

We present a lattice calculation of $L_{10}$, one of the low energy constants in Chiral Perturbation Theory, and the charged-neutral pion squared mass splitting, using dynamical overlap fermion. Exact chiral symmetry of the overlap fermion allows us to reliably extract these quantities from the difference of the vacuum polarization functions for vector and axial-vector currents. In the context of the technicolor models, these two quantities are read as the $S$-parameter and the pseudo-Nambu-Goldstone boson mass respectively, and play an important role in discriminating the models from others.
