DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Mathias Wagner (NVIDIA)\nAnalysis tasks in Lattice Q
CD thermodynamics often requires solving linear equations for multiple rig
ht hand sides for a constant gauge field. Recently deflation methods have
become more widely used and proven to be very efficient. They however do r
equire the calculation and storing of eigenvectors which is either not alw
ays feasible or suffer from high setup costs. We present results for an im
plementation of a block solver for multiple right hand sides using the QUD
A library for QCD on NVIDIA GPUs. By making use of the gauge field reuse i
n the Dslash operator\, mixed precision approaches and block Krylov space
methods they do provide outstanding solver performance. We present results
on NVIDIA's most recent Pascal architecture. Furthermore we provide an up
date on the QUDA library and overview of NVIDIA's Pascal architecture.\n\n

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Aleksandr Nikolaev (ITEP)\nIn this talk we present o
ur results on the low-temperature scan of the phase diagram of dense two-c
olor QCD with two flavors of quarks. The study is conducted using lattice
simulation with rooted staggered quarks and real baryon chemical potential
. At small chemical potential we observe the hadronic phase\, where the th
eory is in a confining state\, chiral symmetry is broken\, the baryon dens
ity is zero and there is no diquark condensate. At the critical point $\\m
u = m_{\\pi}/2$ we observe the expected second order transition to Bose-Ei
nstein condensation of scalar diquarks. In this phase the system is still
in confinement in conjunction with non-zero baryon density\, but the chira
l symmetry is restored in the chiral limit. We have also found that in the
first two phases the system is well described by chiral perturbation theo
ry. For larger values of the chemical potential the system turns into anot
her phase\, where the relevant degrees of freedom are fermions residing in
side the Fermi sphere\, and the diquark condensation takes place on the Fe
rmi surface. In this phase the system is still in confinement\, chiral sym
metry is restored and the system is very similar to the quarkyonic state p
redicted by SU($N_c$) theory at large $N_c$.\n\nhttps://conference.ippp.du

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Biagio Lucini (Swansea University)\nMost of the succ
esses of lattice QCD are strictly connected with advances in numerical met
hods. In particular\, importance sampling Monte Carlo methods have underpi
nned lattice QCD calculations since the early days of the field. However\,
it is well known that importance sampling methods fail in cases when one
has to sample over configurations whose occurrence is suppressed by the Mo
nte Carlo measure. Typical examples are first order phase transitions\, in
which two equally probable equilibrium states are connected by configurat
ions with probability of occurrence exponentially suppressed with the syst
em size\, or the sign problem\, whereby strong cancellations occurring for
observables evaluated over highly probable configurations give a high rel
ative weight to less recurring states. A possible way around these problem
s is a direct sampling of the density of states through a non-Markovian Ra
ndom Walk in configuration space\, as proposed by Wang and Landau a few ye
ars ago. In this contribution\, I review the Logarithmic Linear Relaxation
(LLR) method\, a recently introduced algorithm in the Wang-Landau class t
hat allows us to determine density of states over several orders of magnit
ude with the same relative accuracy. After an introduction to the ideas in
spiring the algorithm and the presentation of some practical implementatio
ns\, I discuss some applications to spin and gauge systems\, with emphasis
on the sign problem and the challenges it presents.\n\nhttps://conference

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Bastian Brandt (University of Frankfurt)\nWe study t
he strength of the anomalous breaking of the $U_A(1)$ symmetry in the chir
al limit of two-flavour QCD at the transition temperature using the differ
ence of the pseudoscalar and scalar iso-vector screening masses. To this e
nd we use simulations with non-perturbatively $O(a)$-improved Wilson fermi
ons for three different pion masses in the range of 200-550MeV on lattices
with a temporal extent of 16 and volumes of $32^3$ to $64^3$. We compare
our results to the strong breaking at zero temperature and find that the e
ffect of the breaking in the mass difference is reduced by at least a fact
or of five. This indicates a weak $U_A(1)$ breaking at the transition temp
erature and raises the question of its influence on the nature of the chir
al transition. It is generally expected that a weaker breaking strenghtens
the chiral phase transition.\n\nhttps://conference.ippp.dur.ac.uk/event/5

ased on stochastic quantization with UV regulated noise enabling a direct
control of the quantum fluctuations at all lattice momentum scales. Our pa

me and the associated physical scale of the system. Thereto observables de
pending on the long-range physics such as topological quantities are inves

pure SU(2) gauge theory. Effects of colored noise\non observables are ana

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Ulrich Heinz (The Ohio State University)\nRecent exp
erimental data from p+Pb and high-multiplicity p+p collisions at the LHC\,
as well as p+Au\, d+Au and He3+Au collisions at RHIC\, suggest strongly t
hat the same collective phenomena that have been attributed to hydrodynami
c flow in collisions between heavy nuclei also manifest in qualitatively i
dentical ways in collisions where one or both collision partners are as sm
all as a proton. How can this be??! To resolve this surprise\, I will disc
uss the conditions under which hydrodynamic behavior can be expected\, and
show that modern (resummed) versions of viscous fluid dynamics that accou
nt more efficiently for unavoidable strong local momentum anisotropies in
rapidly and strongly anisotropically expanding systems can quite accuratel
y describe the evolution of fireballs whose local phase-space distribution
is far from thermal equilibrium. I will argue that the largest stumbling
block on the way towards a quantitative dynamical understanding of the evo
lution of small collision systems is not a likely breakdown of the hydrody
namic framework\, but our insufficient knowledge of the internal spatial s
tructure of the proton and its quantum fluctuations from collision event t
o event. Some recent suggestions for improved modelling of the initial-sta

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Seyong Kim (Sejong University)\nThe thermal Sommerfe
ld factor\, concerning the co-annihilation rate\nof heavy quarks in therma
l equilibrium\, is shown that it can be\ndefined in terms of two-point cor
relator ratios. Then\, we calculate\nnon-perturbatively the co-annihilatio
n rate of heavy quarks close to\nthermal equilibrium using lattice NRQCD f
ramework. Lattice\nmeasurements indicate a modest suppression in the octet
channel\, in\nreasonable agreement with perturbation theory\, and a large
enhancement\nin the singlet channel\, much above the perturbative predict
ion. The\nadditional enhancement is suggested to originate from bound stat
e\nformation and subsequent decay\, omitted in previous estimates of\nther
mal Sommerfeld factors\, which were meant for use in Boltzmann\nequations
governing single-particle phase space distributions. We show\nhow bound st
ate effects can be included in perturbative\ncomputations. The latter form
alism may find applications also in\nspecific dark matter models.\n\nhttps

the quark mass and the chemical potential and focus on two main observable

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Keitaro Nagata (KEK\, Theory Center)\nRecently\, the
complex Langevin method has been applied successfully to finite density Q
CD either in the deconfinement phase or in the heavy dense limit with the
aid of a new technique called the gauge cooling. In the confinement phase
with light quarks\, however\, convergence to wrong limits occurs due to th
e singularity in the drift term caused by small eigenvalues of the Dirac o
perator including the mass term. We propose that this singular-drift probl
em should also be overcome by the gauge cooling with different criteria fo
r choosing the complexified gauge transformation. \n\nI will explain the i
dea of our method\, what criteria allows us to avoid the singular drift pr
oblem. Applying the method to chiral Random Matrix Theory\, I will show th
at the method indeed works for the chRMT\, where the gauge cooling changes
drastically the eigenvalue distribution of the Dirac operator measured du
ring the Langevin process. This change of the eigenvalue distribution is e
xplained by a generalized Banks-Casher relation. \nI will also present a
result for finite density QCD in the confinement phase. \n\n\nK. Nagata\,

talk\, we construct the framework of the QCD in rotating systems. Based on
this\, we investigate the chiral structure under the presence of magnetic
background and rotation. We suggest that the interplay between magnetic f

is a novel phenomenon analogous to the inverse magnetic catalysis.\n\nhtt

al advantages that this path may bring. First\, it allows for new types of
applications in physics and potentially improved performance of the recon

asymptotic phenomena that govern compressed sensing. By understanding the

nThe dual superconductivity is a promising mechanism for quark confinement
. We have presented a new formulation of the Yang-Mills theory on the lat
tice\, and pointed out that the $SU(3)$ Yang-Mills theory has a new way of
reformulation using new field variables (minimal option)\, in addition to
the conventional option adopted by Cho\, Faddeev and Niemi (maximal optio
n). In the preceding works\, we have accumulated the numerical evidences
that support the non-Abelian dual superconductivity using the minimal opt
ion for the SU(3) Yang-Mills theory. \n\n\n In this talk\, we focus on
the confinement/deconfinement phase transition \nfrom the viewpoint of the
dual superconductivity. The confinement/deconfinement phase transition is
conventionally detected by using center symmetry unbroken/spontaneous br
eaking. In view of the dual superconductivity\, the confinemenet/deconfi
nement phase transition must be described by the phase transition dual Mei
ssner effect at finite temperature. For this purpose\, we measure the dist
ribution of the chromoelectric flux connecting a quark and an antiquark an
d the induced magnetic-monopole current around the flux tube which is the
candidate of the order parameter for the confinement/deconfinement phase
transition. Finally\, we will discuss the relation between center symmetry
and the dual Meissner effect.\n\n\nhttps://conference.ippp.dur.ac.uk/ev

\nWe study the phase diagram of the fermionic Hubbard model on the hexagon
al lattice in the space of on-site and nearest neighbor couplings with Hyb
rid-Monte-Carlo simulations. With pure on-site repulsion this allows to de
termine the critical coupling strength for spin-density wave formation. We
compare the standard approach of introducing a small mass term\, explicit
ly breaking the sublattice symmetry\, with a purely geometric mass\, i.e.
using lattices and boundary conditions such that the Dirac points fall in
between the grid points inside the Brillouin zone without explicit sublatt
ice-symmetry breaking. For the first method we extrapolate the correspondi
ng susceptibility peaks towards zero mass and infinite volume in the usual
way\, while with the geometric mass only infinite volume extrapolation is
needed. An added bonus is that it can be used with nearest neighbor repul
sion and charge-density wave formation where the corresponding mass term w
ould introduce a sign problem. The geometric mass thus provides a promisin
g method to study the competition between these different types of order a
nd the resulting phase diagram with ab-initio simulations.\n\nhttps://conf

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Haitao Shu (CCNU)\nWe present our most updated resul
ts on the charmonium correlation and spectral functions. The correlation f
unctions are obtained using the clover improved Wilson fermions on quenche
d lattices with spatial size fixed to 192. And temporal sizes of these lat
tices are chosen to be 96\, 64\, 56\, 48 and 32 corresponding to 0.73\, 1.
1\, 1.25\, 1.5 and 2.2 Tc. We perform a detailed analysis of these charmon
ium correlators using two different stochastic approaches\, namely Stochas
tic Analytical Inference (SAI) and Stochastic Optimization Method (SOM) to
extract the spectral functions. The systematic uncertainties in spectral
functions obtained from SOM and SAI will be discussed\, and the comparison
s with those from Maximum Entropy Method (MEM) also will be presented.\n\n

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Hiromichi Nishimura (RIKEN BNL Research Center)\nWe
consider the spectrum of transfer matrix eigenvalues associated with Polya
kov loops in lattice QCD at strong coupling. The transfer matrix at finit
e density is non-Hermitian\, and its eigenvalues become complex as a manif
estation of the sign problem. We show that the global symmetries of finit
e-density QCD ensure that the complex eigenvalues are part of a complex co
njugate pair\, and they lead to sinusoidally modulated decay in Polyakov l
oop correlation functions. We argue that the results reflect oscillatory
behavior in color-charge densities reminiscent of density-density correlat
ion functions in liquids\, and it is generic in spin models for QCD at fin
ite density\, as well as phenomenological models using complex saddle poin
ts.\n\nhttps://conference.ippp.dur.ac.uk/event/530/contributions/2963/

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Bastian Brandt (University of Frankfurt)\nWe investi
gate the phase diagram of QCD at finite isospin chemical potential using 2
+1 flavours of staggered fermions with physical quark masses at different
lattice spacings and volumes. For high chemical potentials and low tempera
tures the confined phase shows a transition to the pion condensation phase
. This phase is characterised by a proliferation of low modes that slow do
wn the simulation considerably and necessitate the use of an infrared regu
lator. We discuss a novel strategy to determine the pion condensate in the
limit of vanishing regulators. To investigate the convergence properties
and the range of validity of the Taylor expansion method at a given order\
, we compare our results to the Taylor expansion for finite isospin chemic
al potential at 4 derivative order. This can serve as an important crossch
eck for the Taylor expansion method at finite baryon chemical potential\,
where direct simulations are impossible due to the sign problem.\n\nhttps:

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Akihiko Monnai (Institut de Physique Théorique\, CN
RS/CEA)\nThe properties of a QCD medium at finite density is extensively s
tudied in the recent beam energy scan program at BNL Relativistic Heavy Io
n collider. One of the main goals of the program is to understand the QCD
phase structure and to verify the existence of a critical point. A difficu
lty in such analyses is that a signal of the critical point could be therm
ally washed away if its location is far from the freeze-out\, unless its e
ffects on dynamical evolution is sizable enough to modify the freeze-out h
ypersurface.\n\nThe relativistic hydrodynamic model has been proven to be
a powerful tool for heavy-ion analyses in the past decades. In this study\
, we propose to extend the model to lower energies at finite density and e
stimate thermal photon spectra and flow harmonics. Since the medium is ele
ctromagnetically transparent\, there is an advantage that the critical poi
nt does not have to be near the freeze-out for its photonic signal to be d
etectable. We present the results from (2+1)-dimensional hydrodynamic simu
lation and discuss their phenomenological consequences.\n\nhttps://confere

n correlation functions at high temperature\, we perform simulations on an
isotropic lattices with a target anisotropic factor of a_s/a_t=6.3. The tu

relation and Wilson loop ratios. We present our preliminary results for t

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Julien Frison (KEK Theory Center)\nAt $T>T_c$\, the
topological susceptibility quickly drops down\, although the precise speed
of this fall is still subject to theoretical debates. It then becomes pra
ctically impossible for lattice QCD to handle volumes large enough to allo
w non-trivial topology and a precise sampling of the sectors involved in t
he $\\theta=0$ vacuum. We present a new method applicable to the computati
on of the decrease of the susceptibility on a wide range of situations\, i
ncluding in particular finite-temperature ensembles with $\\chi_t\\ll 1/V$
. This method distinguishes itself from most other methods by not relying
on the $\\theta=0$ vacuum\, nor any semi-classical approximation around $\
\theta=0$\, but only on topology-fixed configurations. We will provide som
e encouraging preliminary results on quenched ensembles\, and discuss the
generalisation to any simulation.\n\nhttps://conference.ippp.dur.ac.uk/eve

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Francesco Di Renzo (University of Parma and INFN)\nI
n the context of the chiral random matrix model we introduced a way to com
pute lattice quantum field theories on Lefschetz thimbles by taking into a
ccount the contributions to the functional integral which come from comple
te flow lines. The latter are the steepest ascent paths attached to critic
al points\, i.e. the basic building blocks of thimbles. While the thimble
regularization was successfull in solving the chiral random matrix model\,
the simulating algorithm we first made use of was the roughest one could
devise\, i.e. static\, crude Monte Carlo. The static\, crude Monte Carlo w
as also useful in solving QCD in 0+1 dimensions at finite chemical potenti
al\, whose results we will present in the talk. We have also come up with
a new algorithm\, which is based on a heat bath sampling of the gaussian a
pproximation of the thimble: this defines the proposals for a Metropolis-l
ike accept/reject step. We present this new algorithm\, showing its effect
iveness in the case of the chiral random matrix model and discussing appli
cations to other theories. In particular\, we are going to address the iss
ues and the formalism for thimble regularization of Yang Mills theory in 2
dimensions with complex coupling.\n\nhttps://conference.ippp.dur.ac.uk/ev
