Mr Diego Silva (The University of Iowa)


A SU(3) gauge theory with 12 flavors is a model of great interest for beyond the standard model physics. Running RHMC simulations for different masses and betas we study the Fisher zeroes in the vicinity of the endpoint of a line of first order transitions. The pinching of these zeros with respect to increasing volume provide information about a possible unconventional continuum limit. We also study the mass spectrum of a multiflavor linear sigma model with a splitting of fermion masses.
