The Stochastic Feynman-Hellmann Method
2019 May 29
The Feynman-Hellmann method, as implemented by Bouchard et al. [1612.06963], was recently employed successfully to determine the nucleon axial charge. A limitation of the method was the restriction to a single operator and a single momentum during the computation of each "Feynman-Hellmann" propagator. By using stochastic techniques to estimate the all-to-all propagator, we relax this constraint and demonstrate the successful implementation of this new method. We show reproduction of the axial charge on a test ensemble and non-zero momentum transfer points of the axial and vector form factors.
