Taste symmetry violation at finite temperature    [PDF]

Edwin Laermann, Fabrizio Pucci
Symmetries play a distinctive role at the high temperature phase transition in QCD. Therefore the spectrum of screening masses has been investigated with emphasis on taste breaking. Although taste violation is an UV effect the relevant operators could be temperature dependent. We have studied the meson screening masses in the temperature range between 140 MeV to 550 MeV. The computation has been performed using dynamical N_f = 2+1 gauge field configurations generated with the p4 staggered action. For temperatures below the transition an agreement with the prediction of staggered chiral perturbation theory has been found and no temperature effect can be observed on the taste violation. Above the transition the taste splitting still shows an O(a^2) behavior but with a temperature dependent slope.
