Abstract

The aim of this project is to explore the complementarity between the two non-perturbative methods available to describe the QCD strong coupling regime: Lattice QCD and the Schwinger-Dyson equations. By feeding the Schwinger-Dyson equations with the data obtained in the lattice simulations, we will be able to improve truncation schemes and Ansätze for the Green's functions employed in the Schwinger-Dyson analysis. Our project consists of five (5) main parts which will be studied simultaneously. They are: (i) include the two-loop dressed diagrams in the Schwinger-Dyson equations in order to obtain a better quantitative agreement with the Lattice QCD results, (ii) determine the infrared behavior of QCD coupling constant in the presence of fields of quarks, (iii) study the coupled system of equations for the gluon-ghost propagators in the Feynman gauge, and (iv) unravel the properties and the Ward identities of the four propagators (diagonal and non-diagonal) which are present in the maximal Abelian gauge and finally (v) study the longitudinal and the transverse form factors of the quark-gluon vertex in general kinematics configurations, with the ultimate aim of building a kernel for the Bethe-Salpeter equation.
