Freezeout systematics due to the hadron spectrumAug 27 2017Nov 08 2017We investigate systematics of the freezeout surface in heavy ion collisions due to the hadron spectrum. The role of suspected resonance states that are yet to be confirmed experimentally in identifying the freezeout surface has been investigated. We have ... More

Revisiting the Hybrid Quantum Monte Carlo Method for Hubbard and Electron-Phonon ModelsAug 11 2017A unique feature of the Hybrid Quantum Monte Carlo (HQMC) method is the potential to simulate negative sign free lattice fermion models with sub-cubic scaling in system size. Here we will revisit the algorithm for various models. We will show that for ... More

Repulsive baryonic interactions and lattice QCD observables at imaginary chemical potentialAug 09 2017Oct 19 2017The first principle lattice QCD methods allow to calculate the thermodynamic observables at finite temperature and imaginary chemical potential. These can be compared to the predictions of various phenomenological models. We argue that Fourier coefficients ... More
