Description

I discuss QCD with Flavored Minimally Doubled Fermions as sea quarks. Minimally Doubled Fermions are an ultra-local formulation that realizes a non-singlet chiral symmetry with only two real fermions at finite lattice cutoff, but break the hypercubic symmetry as well as some discrete space-time symmetries. I show that the broken discrete space-time symmetries do not affect vacuum since the corresponding symmetry breaking terms cancel exactly in the fermion determinant. With a non-singlet mass term, I introduce a well-controlled definition of flavor in the continuum limit which is consistent with the naturally emergent flavor structure of meson correlation functions at finite cutoff.
