SUMMARY:Progress in thimble regularization: a new algorithm\, 0+1 QCD and

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Dr. DI RENZO\, Francesco (University of Parma and IN
FN)\nIn the context of the chiral random matrix model we introduced a way
to compute lattice quantum field theories on Lefschetz thimbles by taking
into account the contributions to the functional integral which come from
complete flow lines. The latter are the steepest ascent paths attached to
critical points\, i.e. the basic building blocks of thimbles. While the th
imble regularization was successfull in solving the chiral random matrix m
odel\, the simulating algorithm we first made use of was the roughest one
could devise\, i.e. static\, crude Monte Carlo. The static\, crude Monte C
arlo was also useful in solving QCD in 0+1 dimensions at finite chemical p
otential\, 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 gaus
sian approximation of the thimble: this defines the proposals for a Metrop
olis-like accept/reject step. We present this new algorithm\, showing its
effectiveness in the case of the chiral random matrix model and discussing
applications to other theories. In particular\, we are going to address t
he issues and the formalism for thimble regularization of Yang Mills theor
y in 2 dimensions with complex coupling.\n\nhttps://conference.ippp.dur.ac

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Dr. FRISON\, Julien (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 becom
es practically impossible for lattice QCD to handle volumes large enough t
o allow non-trivial topology and a precise sampling of the sectors involve
d in the $\\theta=0$ vacuum. We present a new method applicable to the com
putation of the decrease of the susceptibility on a wide range of situatio
ns\, including in particular finite-temperature ensembles with $\\chi_t\\l
l 1/V$. This method distinguishes itself from most other methods by not re
lying on the $\\theta=0$ vacuum\, nor any semi-classical approximation aro
und $\\theta=0$\, but only on topology-fixed configurations. We will provi
de some encouraging preliminary results on quenched ensembles\, and discus
s the generalisation to any simulation.\n\nhttps://conference.ippp.dur.ac.

\nWe present our recent results on the chiral phase transition in 2+1 flav
or QCD on lattices with temporal extent $N_{\\tau} = 6$. We have performed
lattice QCD simulations using the Highly Improved Staggered Quarks with 5
different values of pion masses\, i.e. 160\, 140\, 110\, 90\, 80 MeV in a
temperature window from 140 MeV to 170 MeV. We have analyzed the universa
l scaling behaviour of the chiral phase transition at vanishing baryon che
mical potential by looking into the temperature and quark mass dependences
of the chiral condensates of chiral susceptibilities. The window of criti
cality compared to previous studies is also discussed.\n\nhttps://conferen

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Dr. LEE\, Jong-Wan (Swansea University)\nRecently th
e two-color gauge theory with two flavors of fundamental fermions has rece
ived considerable attention in BSM model building\, as it provides a minim
al template for a composite Higgs theory that includes dark matter candida
tes. In this work\, we consider the two-color model with two flavors of Wi
lson fermions at non-zero temperature. For a more reliable investigation o
f meson correlation functions at high temperature\, we perform simulations
on anisotropic lattices with a target anisotropic factor of a_s/a_t=6.3.
The tuning of bare parameters was carried out using the pseudo-scalar disp
ersion relation and Wilson loop ratios. We present our preliminary results
for the identification of parity doubling from the temporal and spacial c
orrelation functions of vector and axial-vector mesons.\n\nhttps://confere

coupled to the auxiliary fields. We simulate this system using diagrammati

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Dr. MONNAI\, Akihiko (Institut de Physique Théoriqu
e\, CNRS/CEA)\nThe properties of a QCD medium at finite density is extensi
vely studied in the recent beam energy scan program at BNL Relativistic He
avy Ion collider. One of the main goals of the program is to understand th
e QCD phase structure and to verify the existence of a critical point. A d
ifficulty in such analyses is that a signal of the critical point could be
thermally washed away if its location is far from the freeze-out\, unless
its effects on dynamical evolution is sizable enough to modify the freeze
-out hypersurface.\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 estimate thermal photon spectra and flow harmonics. Since the medium
is electromagnetically transparent\, there is an advantage that the critic
al point does not have to be near the freeze-out for its photonic signal t
o be detectable. We present the results from (2+1)-dimensional hydrodynami
c simulation and discuss their phenomenological consequences.\n\nhttps://c

the corresponding spectral function\,\nwhich vanishes at zero frequency an
d matches to high-precision\nperturbative results at large invariant masse
s. For small invariant\nmasses the interpolation is compared with the NLO
weak-coupling\nresult\, hydrodynamics\, and a holographic model. At vanish
ing invariant\nmass we extract the photon rate which for $k \\sim 3T$ is f
ound to be\nclose to the NLO weak-coupling prediction. For $k \\sim 2T$\nu
ncertainties remain large but the photon rate is likely to fall below\nthe
NLO prediction\, in accordance with the onset of a strongly\ninteracting

sing 2+1 flavours of staggered fermions with physical quark masses at diff

emperatures the confined phase shows a transition to the pion condensation
phase. This phase is characterised by a proliferation of low modes that s
low down the simulation considerably and necessitate the use of an infrare
d regulator. We discuss a novel strategy to determine the pion condensate
in the limit of vanishing regulators. To investigate the convergence prope
rties 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
chemical potential at 4 derivative order. This can serve as an important c
rosscheck for the Taylor expansion method at finite baryon chemical potent
ial\, where direct simulations are impossible due to the sign problem.\n\n

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Dr. NISHIMURA\, Hiromichi (RIKEN BNL Research Center
)\nWe consider the spectrum of transfer matrix eigenvalues associated with
Polyakov loops in lattice QCD at strong coupling. The transfer matrix at
finite density is non-Hermitian\, and its eigenvalues become complex as a
manifestation of the sign problem. We show that the global symmetries of
finite-density QCD ensure that the complex eigenvalues are part of a comp
lex conjugate pair\, and they lead to sinusoidally modulated decay in Poly
akov loop correlation functions. We argue that the results reflect oscill
atory behavior in color-charge densities reminiscent of density-density co
rrelation functions in liquids\, and it is generic in spin models for QCD
at finite density\, as well as phenomenological models using complex saddl
e points.\n\nhttps://conference.ippp.dur.ac.uk/event/530/session/4/contrib

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Prof. VON SMEKAL\, Lorenz (Justus-Liebig University
Giessen)\nWe study the phase diagram of the fermionic Hubbard model on the
hexagonal lattice in the space of on-site and nearest neighbor couplings
with Hybrid-Monte-Carlo simulations. With pure on-site repulsion this allo
ws to determine the critical coupling strength for spin-density wave forma
tion. We compare the standard approach of introducing a small mass term\,
explicitly 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
sublattice-symmetry breaking. For the first method we extrapolate the cor
responding susceptibility peaks towards zero mass and infinite volume in t
he usual way\, while with the geometric mass only infinite volume extrapol
ation is needed. An added bonus is that it can be used with nearest neighb
or repulsion and charge-density wave formation where the corresponding mas
s term would introduce a sign problem. The geometric mass thus provides a
promising method to study the competition between these different types of
order and the resulting phase diagram with ab-initio simulations.\n\nhttp

n\nThe dual superconductivity is a promising mechanism for quark confineme
nt. We have presented a new formulation of the Yang-Mills theory on the l
attice\, 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 opt
ion). In the preceding works\, we have accumulated the numerical evidence
s that support the non-Abelian dual superconductivity using the minimal o
ption for the SU(3) Yang-Mills theory. \n\n\n In this talk\, we focus o
n the confinement/deconfinement phase transition \nfrom the viewpoint of t
he dual superconductivity. The confinement/deconfinement phase transition
is conventionally detected by using center symmetry unbroken/spontaneous
breaking. In view of the dual superconductivity\, the confinemenet/decon
finement phase transition must be described by the phase transition dual M
eissner effect at finite temperature. For this purpose\, we measure the di
stribution of the chromoelectric flux connecting a quark and an antiquark
and the induced magnetic-monopole current around the flux tube which is t
he candidate of the order parameter for the confinement/deconfinement phas
e transition. Finally\, we will discuss the relation between center symmet
ry and the dual Meissner effect.\n\n\nhttps://conference.ippp.dur.ac.uk/

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Dr. HANSEN\, Anders (DAMTP Cambridge)\nCompressed se
nsing has had a considerable impact on inverse problems and sampling theor
y over the last ten years. However\, the traditional compressed sensing se
tup and theory is usually discrete\, a fact that may seem at odds with man
y of the physical models that are over the continuum. In this talk we will
discuss how one can design compressed sensing over the continuum and how
this approach changes the theory and also the algorithmic setup. There are
several advantages that this path may bring. First\, it allows for new ty
pes of applications in physics and potentially improved performance of the
reconstruction techniques. Second\, it allows for a better understanding

elucidated. Nevertheless it is known that a rapid rotation is realized in
main objectives of QCD physics: heavy-ion collisions and neutron stars. In
this talk\, we construct the framework of the QCD in rotating systems. Ba
sed on this\, we investigate the chiral structure under the presence of ma
gnetic background and rotation. We suggest that the interplay between magn
etic field and rotation leads to the “*rotational magnetic inhibition*

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Dr. NAGATA\, Keitaro (KEK\, Theory Center)\nRecently
\, the complex Langevin method has been applied successfully to finite den
sity QCD either in the deconfinement phase or in the heavy dense limit wit
h 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 the singularity in the drift term caused by small eigenvalues of the D
irac operator including the mass term. We propose that this singular-drift
problem should also be overcome by the gauge cooling with different crite
ria for choosing the complexified gauge transformation. \n\nI will explain
the idea of our method\, what criteria allows us to avoid the singular dr
ift problem. Applying the method to chiral Random Matrix Theory\, I will s
how that the method indeed works for the chRMT\, where the gauge cooling c
hanges drastically the eigenvalue distribution of the Dirac operator measu
red during the Langevin process. This change of the eigenvalue distributio
n is explained by a generalized Banks-Casher relation. \nI will also pres
ent a result for finite density QCD in the confinement phase. \n\n\nK. Nag

a large enhancement\nin the singlet channel\, much above the perturbative
prediction. The\nadditional enhancement is suggested to originate from bo
und state\nformation and subsequent decay\, omitted in previous estimates
of\nthermal Sommerfeld factors\, which were meant for use in Boltzmann\neq

rongly that the same collective phenomena that have been attributed to hyd
rodynamic flow in collisions between heavy nuclei also manifest in qualita
tively identical ways in collisions where one or both collision partners a
re as small as a proton. How can this be??! To resolve this surprise\, I w
ill discuss the conditions under which hydrodynamic behavior can be expect
ed\, and show that modern (resummed) versions of viscous fluid dynamics th
at account more efficiently for unavoidable strong local momentum anisotro
pies in rapidly and strongly anisotropically expanding systems can quite a
ccurately describe the evolution of fireballs whose local phase-space dist
ribution is far from thermal equilibrium. I will argue that the largest st
umbling block on the way towards a quantitative dynamical understanding of
the evolution of small collision systems is not a likely breakdown of the
hydrodynamic framework\, but our insufficient knowledge of the internal s
patial structure of the proton and its quantum fluctuations from collision
event to event. Some recent suggestions for improved modelling of the ini

Our particular interest is to investigate the correspondence between the f
low time and the associated physical scale of the system. Thereto observab

investigated.\nThe method is tested on a real scalar field theory as well
as on pure SU(2) gauge theory. Effects of colored noise\non observables a

insensitive to UV fluctuations above a characteristic momentum scale.\nThe
suitability and efficiency of the method regarding the generation of smoo

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Ms. HAJIZADEH\, Ouraman (University of Graz)\nG2-QCD
\, i.e. QCD with the gauge group SU(3) replaced by the exceptional\ngroup
G(2)\, shares many features with SU(3). But it is accessible at\nfinite de
nsity on the lattice\, as it has no sign problem\, and at the\nsame time h
as a neutron.\n\nTherefore\, this theory can sustain in princple neutron s
tar. Using the\nequation of state for this theory from lattice simulations
\, we solve the\nOppenheimer-Volkoff equation and obtain the mass-radius-r
elation of such\nneutron stars.\n\nThis study shows how different phases\,
visible in the equation of state\,\ninfluence the mass-radius relation\,
and therefore gives guidance for the\ncase of full QCD and true neutron st
ars.\n\nhttps://conference.ippp.dur.ac.uk/event/530/session/1/contribution

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Dr. BRANDT\, Bastian (University of Frankfurt)\nWe s
tudy the strength of the anomalous breaking of the $U_A(1)$ symmetry in th
e chiral limit of two-flavour QCD at the transition temperature using the
difference of the pseudoscalar and scalar iso-vector screening masses. To
this end we use simulations with non-perturbatively $O(a)$-improved Wilson
fermions for three different pion masses in the range of 200-550MeV on la
ttices with a temporal extent of 16 and volumes of $32^3$ to $64^3$. We co
mpare our results to the strong breaking at zero temperature and find that
the effect of the breaking in the mass difference is reduced by at least
a factor of five. This indicates a weak $U_A(1)$ breaking at the transitio
n temperature and raises the question of its influence on the nature of th
e chiral transition. It is generally expected that a weaker breaking stren
ghtens the chiral phase transition.\n\nhttps://conference.ippp.dur.ac.uk/e

two novel effects associated to the non-zero bulk viscosity of the result
ing plasma. First\, the hydrodynamization time increases. Second\, if the
bulk viscosity is large enough then the plasma becomes well described by h
ydrodynamics before the equilibrium equation of state becomes applicable.
We discuss implications for the quark-gluon plasma created in heavy ion co

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Prof. LUCINI\, Biagio (Swansea University)\nMost of
the successes of lattice QCD are strictly connected with advances in numer
ical methods. In particular\, importance sampling Monte Carlo methods have
underpinned lattice QCD calculations since the early days of the field. H
owever\, it is well known that importance sampling methods fail in cases w
hen one has to sample over configurations whose occurrence is suppressed b
y the Monte Carlo measure. Typical examples are first order phase transiti
ons\, in which two equally probable equilibrium states are connected by co
nfigurations with probability of occurrence exponentially suppressed with
the system size\, or the sign problem\, whereby strong cancellations occur
ring for observables evaluated over highly probable configurations give a
high relative weight to less recurring states. A possible way around these
problems is a direct sampling of the density of states through a non-Mark
ovian Random Walk in configuration space\, as proposed by Wang and Landau
a few years ago. In this contribution\, I review the Logarithmic Linear Re
laxation (LLR) method\, a recently introduced algorithm in the Wang-Landau
class that allows us to determine density of states over several orders o
f magnitude with the same relative accuracy. After an introduction to the
ideas inspiring the algorithm and the presentation of some practical imple
mentations\, I discuss some applications to spin and gauge systems\, with
emphasis on the sign problem and the challenges it presents.\n\nhttps://co

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Mr. NIKOLAEV\, Aleksandr (ITEP)\nIn this talk we pre
sent our results on the low-temperature scan of the phase diagram of dense
two-color QCD with two flavors of quarks. The study is conducted using la
ttice simulation with rooted staggered quarks and real baryon chemical pot
ential. At small chemical potential we observe the hadronic phase\, where
the theory is in a confining state\, chiral symmetry is broken\, the baryo
n density is zero and there is no diquark condensate. At the critical poin
t $\\mu = m_{\\pi}/2$ we observe the expected second order transition to B
ose-Einstein condensation of scalar diquarks. In this phase the system is
still in confinement in conjunction with non-zero baryon density\, but the
chiral symmetry is restored in the chiral limit. We have also found that
in the first two phases the system is well described by chiral perturbatio
n theory. For larger values of the chemical potential the system turns int
o another phase\, where the relevant degrees of freedom are fermions resid
ing inside the Fermi sphere\, and the diquark condensation takes place on
the Fermi surface. In this phase the system is still in confinement\, chir
al symmetry is restored and the system is very similar to the quarkyonic s
tate predicted by SU($N_c$) theory at large $N_c$.\n\nhttps://conference.i

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Dr. WAGNER\, Mathias (NVIDIA)\nAnalysis tasks in Lat

have become more widely used and proven to be very efficient. They howeve

an implementation of a block solver for multiple right hand sides using t
he QUDA library for QCD on NVIDIA GPUs. By making use of the gauge field r
euse in the Dslash operator\, mixed precision approaches and block Krylov
space methods they do provide outstanding solver performance. We present r
esults on NVIDIA's most recent Pascal architecture. Furthermore we provide
an update on the QUDA library and overview of NVIDIA's Pascal architectur
