Toward the QCD $β$ Function with Dynamical Wilson FermionsNov 25 1994We present data for the scaling behavior of lattice QCD with two flavors of light Wilson fermions. This is done by matching $\pi$ n and $\rho$ masses at the two lattice sizes of $16^3\times32 $ and $8^3\times16$. We find that at $\beta=6/g^2\equiv5.3$ ... More

QCD $β$ Function with Two Flavors of Dynamical Wilson FermionsFeb 07 1996May 06 1996We test the asymptotic scaling behavior of state-of-the-art simulations of QCD with two flavors of light Wilson fermions. This is done by matching $\pi$ and $\rho$ masses on lattices of size $16^3\times32$ and $8^3\times16$. We find that at $\beta=6/g^2=5.3$ ... More

The VSOP 2 mission: Imaging capabilitiesMar 18 2004Given the scientific goals of VSOP-2, including the possibility of observations of the shadows of black holes, we have investigated the fidelity of the recovered images given a typical uv-coverage. We find that we can achieve a dynamic range of better ... More
