We present the first calculation of the Mellin moments of the transverse quark spin densities in the nucleon using lattice QCD simulations with physical values of the pion mass and in the continuum limit. Specifically, we use three Nf=2+1+1 twisted mass fermion gauge ensembles each at different lattice spacings. The densities are extracted from the...

The ratio $R(E)$ of the cross-sections for $e^+e^-\to$ hadrons and $e^+e^-\to \mu^+\mu^-$ is a valuable energy-dependent probe of the hadronic sector of the Standard Model. Moreover, the experimental measurements of $R(E)$ are the inputs of the dispersive calculations of the leading hadronic vacuum polarization contribution to the muon $g-2$ and th...

We present new lattice results of the ETM Collaboration, obtained from extensive simulations of lattice QCD with dynamical up, down, strange and charm quarks at physical mass values, different volumes and lattice spacings, concerning the SM prediction for the so-called intermediate window (W) and short-distance (SD) contributions to the leading ord...

The generation of ensembles of gauge configurations is a considerable expense. The preservation and curation of these ensembles constitutes a valuable shared resource for the lattice field theory community. The organizers of Lattice 2022 dedicated a parallel session to the presentation of gauge ensembles and their generation, plans for ensemble pub...

Pseudoscalar-pole diagrams are an important component of estimates of the hadronic light-by-light (HLbL) contribution to the muon $g-2$. We report on our computation of the transition form factors $\mathcal{F}_{P \rightarrow \gamma^* \gamma^*}$ for the neutral pseudoscalar mesons $P=\pi^0$ and $\eta$. The calculation is performed using twisted-mass...

We present a lattice determination of the leading-order hadronic vacuum polarization (HVP) contribution to the muon anomalous magnetic moment, $a_{\mu}^{\rm HVP}$, in the so-called short and intermediate time-distance windows, $a_{\mu}^{\rm SD}$ and $a_{\mu}^{\rm W}$. We employ gauge ensembles produced by the Extended Twisted Mass Collaboration (ET...

We present a first-principles lattice QCD investigation of the $R$-ratio between the $e^+e^-$ cross-section into hadrons and that into muons. By using the method of Ref. [1], that allows to extract smeared spectral densities from Euclidean correlators, we compute the $R$-ratio convoluted with Gaussian smearing kernels of widths of about $600$ MeV a...

We present a lattice determination of the disconnected contributions to the leading-order hadronic vacuum polarization (HVP) to the muon anomalous magnetic moment in the so-called short and intermediate time-distance windows.

We present how we ported the Hybrid Monte Carlo implementation in the tmLQCD software suite to GPUs through offloading its most expensive parts to the QUDA library. We discuss our motivations and some of the technical challenges that we encountered as we added the required functionality to both tmLQCD and QUDA. We further present some performance d...

We calculate the double-virtual $\eta \rightarrow \gamma^* \gamma^*$ transition form factor $\mathcal{F}_{\eta \to \gamma^* \gamma^*}(q_1^2,q_2^2)$ from first principles using a lattice QCD simulation with $N_f=2+1+1$ quark flavors at the physical pion mass and at one lattice spacing and volume. The kinematic range covered by our calculation is com...

We present a calculation of the Mellin moments of the nucleon transverse quark spin densities extracted from the unpolarized and transversity generalized form factors. We use three $N_F=2+1+1$ ensembles of twisted mass fermions with quark masses tuned to their physical values and lattice spacings $a\sim 0.08$~fm, $a\sim 0.07$~fm and $a\sim 0.06$~fm...

We present a lattice determination of the leading-order hadronic vacuum polarization (HVP) contribution to the muon anomalous magnetic moment, $a_{\mu}^{\rm HVP}$, in the so-called short and intermediate time-distance windows, $a_{\mu}^{SD}$ and $a_{\mu}^W$, defined by the RBC/UKQCD Collaboration [1]. We employ a subset of the gauge ensembles produ...

The densities are extracted from the unpolarized and transversity generalized form factors extrapolated to the continuum limit using three $N_f=2+1+1$ twisted mass fermion gauge ensembles simulated with physical quark masses and s...

Lattice QCD simulations directly at physical masses of dynamical light, strange and charm quarks are highly desirable especially to remove systematic errors due to chiral extrapolations. However such simulations are still challenging. We discuss the adaption of efficient algorithms, like multi-grid methods or higher order integrators, within the mo...

We perform the first full decomposition of the pion momentum into its gluon and quark contributions. We employ an ensemble generated by the Extended Twisted Mass Collaboration with Nf=2+1+1 Wilson twisted mass clover fermions at maximal twist tuned to reproduce the physical pion mass. We present our results in the MS¯ scheme at 2 GeV. We find ⟨x⟩u+...

We report on our computation of the pion transition form factor ${\cal F}_{P\rightarrow \gamma^*\gamma^*}$ from twisted mass lattice QCD in order to determine the numerically dominant light pseudoscalar pole contribution in the hadronic light-by-light scattering contribution to the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon $a_\mu =(g-2)_\mu$. The pion...

We present a determination of the gradient flow scales $w_0$, $\sqrt{t_0}$ and $t_0/w_0$ in isosymmetric QCD, making use of the gauge ensembles produced by the Extended Twisted Mass Collaboration (ETMC) with $N_f=2+1+1$ flavours of Wilson-clover twisted-mass quarks including configurations close to the physical point for all dynamical flavours. The...

A vanishing Yukawa coupling of the up quark could in principle solve the strong CP problem. To render this solution consistent with current algebra results, the up quark must receive an alternative mass contribution that conserves CP symmetry. Such a contribution could be provided by QCD through non-perturbative topological effects, including insta...

We compute the nucleon axial and induced pseudoscalar form factors using three ensembles of gauge configurations, generated with dynamical light quarks with mass tuned to approximately their physical value. One of the ensembles also includes the strange and charm quarks with their mass close to physical. The latter ensemble has large statistics and...

The infamous strong CP problem in particle physics can in principle be solved by a massless up quark. In particular, it was hypothesized that topological effects could substantially contribute to the observed nonzero up-quark mass without reintroducing CP violation. Alternatively to previous work using fits to chiral perturbation theory, in this Le...

We discuss the relation of a variety of different methods to determine energy levels in lattice QCD simulations: the generalised eigenvalue, the Prony, the generalised pencil of function and the Gardner methods. All three former methods can be understood as special cases of a generalised eigenvalue problem. We show analytically that the leading cor...

We summarize our lattice QCD determinations of the pion-pion, pion-kaon and kaon-kaon s-wave scattering lengths at maximal isospin with a particular focus on the extrapolation to the physical point and the usage of next-to-leading order chiral perturbation theory to do so. We employ data at three values of the lattice spacing and pion masses rangin...

In this paper we explore the computation of topological susceptibility and η′ meson mass in Nf=2 flavor QCD using lattice techniques with a physical value of the pion mass as well as larger pion mass values. We observe that the physical point can be reached without a significant increase in the statistical noise. The mass of the η′ meson can be obt...
