Dyson-Schwinger and Bethe-Salpeter calculations in Euclidean and Minkowski space in QED and QCD


The goal of the project is to establish collaborations between the nuclear theory groups at Iowa State University (in Ames, IA, USA) and ITA, to perform research in the field of relativistic quantum field theory in Minkowski and Euclidean space formulations. In particular, we plan to investigate the fermion Dyson-Schwinger equation and the Bethe-Salpeter equations for two-fermion bound states in QED and QCD, in rainbow-ladder truncation and beyond. We use the same truncation and the same regularization scheme in both Minkowski and Euclidean space approaches in general covariant gauges. In the strong coupling regime, where chiral symmetry is broken dynamically, we ensure that the truncation and regularization respects the axial-vector Ward identities so as to maintain the Goldstone nature of the pions. Inaddition, we plan to initiate collaborations in ab-initio nuclear structure calculations, studying exotic nuclei such as the chain of hydrogen isotopes. We are in particular interested in the contributions of different components of the nuclear potential on states at the extremes of n/p ratios. (AU)
