Thermodynamics of strongly-coupled lattice QCD in the chiral limit

In the strong coupling limit, $n$-point functions in lattice QCD with staggered fermions can be rewritten exactly as sums over constrained configurations of monomers, dimers, and baryon loops covering the spacetime lattice. Worm algorithms provide efficient global sampling methods over such ensembles, and are particularly efficient in the chiral limit. We study the thermodynamics of strongly-coupled U(3) and SU(3) lattice QCD with one massless staggered fermion using such methods, and compare the results with the relativistic pion gas down to low temperatures O(15 MeV).

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
