Chiral condensate from the twisted mass Dirac operator spectrum    [PDF]

Krzysztof Cichy, Elena Garcia-Ramos, Karl Jansen
We present the results of our computation of the chiral condensate with $N_f=2$ and $N_f=2+1+1$ flavours of maximally twisted mass fermions. The condensate is determined from the Dirac operator spectrum, applying the spectral projector method proposed by Giusti and Luscher. We use 3 lattice spacings and several quark masses at each lattice spacing to reliably perform the chiral and continuum extrapolations. We study the effect of the dynamical strange and charm quarks by comparing our results for $N_f=2$ and $N_f=2+1+1$ dynamical flavours.
