16.6.1 Introduction

- We learned in sectio n 2.3.

- This way of studying a quantum field theory is similar to studying a fourd im e n sio n a l statistical sy stem n ear a c r itical point.
- It is clear from this that correlations over all scales will have to be kept out.

- This assertio n is difficult to p rove and, indeed, is q U ite su r p r isin g. We have seen th e p ower of'renormalizatio.
- The methods of chapter 1 5 were rather formal and the reader may feel a more physical picture of what is going on.
- Wilson provided a picture of thelattice + path integral approach.
- Thanks to Wilson's work, this formalism provides access to a more intuitive way of understanding renormalization theory.
- To illuminate the formal treatment of the previous chapter, the aim of this section is to give a brief introduction to Wilson's ideas.

- The values of the field at each lattice site are the degrees of freedom involved in the 'lattice + path integral' approach to quantum field theory.
- For example, in 16.79), a quantum amplitude is formed by integrating suitable quantities over all of the degrees of freedom.
- It should be possible to look at how the short distance or high momentum degrees of freedom affect the result.

- If we can do this, the result may be compared with the theory as originally formulated to see how this 'integration over short-distance degrees of freedom' affects the physical predictions of the theory.

- Several aspects of the programme invite comment.
- It must be a step in the right direction.
- Simple examples which we hope will show the points are being considered.

- They will be included.

- I re 16.
- The primed spin variables are twice as far apart as the unprimed ones.

- The description of the system is coarse.
- 3 is related tointegrating out two short-distance degrees of freedom.

- These sums are easy to do.

- I re 16.
- The starred values are fixed.

- An sitio n to an ordered phase.

- In th e p r e sen t m o d e l.

- It's a kind of fixed point.

- To maintain the same physical distance.

- A renormalization transformation which has a fixed point at a finite (neither zero nor infinite) value of thecoupling is clearly of greater interest, since this will correspond to a critical point at a finite temperature.

- The details of the model leading to 16.113 are irrelevant to our purpose.

The flow has a striking feature that is 888-609- 888-609- 888-609- 888-609- 888-609-

- I re 16.

- The treatment of the renormalization group in particle physics may be related to this.

- In particular, figure 15.7 and the related discussion are ex actly analogous to the foregoing.

- It is no longer true in an interactin g theory that the propagato is dependent on a free, massless scalar particle.

- diagrams of renormalization flow were onedimensional because we only considered simple models with onecoupling constant.
- Hamiltonians will consist of several terms and the behavior of all their coefficients will need to be considered under a renormalization transformation.
- Wegner gave an analysis of renormalization flow in multi-dimensional space.

- The critical behavior of the system will be determined by the relatively few marginal and relevant couplings.

- The Hamiltonian has additional terms introduced following a renormalization transformation.
- The point may be illustrated by a simple mathematical analogue.

- This change is compensated for by the additional interactions.

- The interaction is not normalizable in four dimensions according to the criterion of section 11.8.

- Positive mass dimensions correspond to a'superrenormalizable' interaction.

- Wilson believes that as we renormalize, the non-renormalizable terms disappear and we are left with an effective renormalizable theory.
- The field theory is similar to universality.

- The Standard Model has a 2' sector.
- In this picture, it seems like it's unnatural to have a lot of particles with the same name.
- In section 22.10.1, we return to this plem.

- We hope th is a p ter-- bu, we h ave str a y e d c o n sid er.
- We n ow fin ally r e tu r n to lattice Q CD, w ith a b r ief su r vey o f so m e o f th e r esu lts o b tain e d numerically.

- In the quenched approximatio n (sectio n 16.4), computin g d emands are formidable.

- The method which can be used to evaluate multi-dimensional integrals is similar to the method used to evaluate quantities.

- For simplicity, we assume that the quarks are massless.

- There is a restriction against light quarks or hadrons of 300 MeV.
- In view of the left-hand inequality in (16.131), 6 GeV seems low and certainly excludes simulations with very massive quarks.

- The scale is related to the comments after the equation.

- We expect 0 from asymptotic freedom.

- L is usually zero.
- Higher-order corrections can be included.

- It is possible to convert -1 to GeV.
- The extract was -1 (GeV).

- The fig is 1 6.

- The two cases are quite diff erent.

- The lines are experimental.

- The functional form is the broken curve.

- There is clear evidence of a disagreement between the pairs of results in the overall picture.
- The 'theory' does not allow a consistent definition of the s quark mass.
- The quenched approximation is to blame for the inconsistency.

- The UKQCD Collaboration used two degenerate flavours.
- There is a 163 x 32 lattice with unquenched quarks3 on it.
- In order to set the scale, one quantity has to be fixed.

- The range is determined by c-c and b-b data.
- In this case, the data are described well by 3 comparisons and the quenched approximation shows little difference.

- It would cost an infinite amount of energy to separate a quark and an anti-quark if 0 was a signal for confinement.
- At some point, enough energy will be stored in the string to create a q-q p air from the vacuum.
