Theoretical Formalism and Simulation Setup

  • Kadir Utku Can
Chapter
Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)

Abstract

This chapter consists of two parts where we, first, discuss the essential theoretical formalism to investigate the observables we are interested in. Mainly, we provide the formulations to extract the mass and the electromagnetic form factors of spin-1/2 and spin-3/2 baryons. A brief account on data analysis is also given. Second part focuses on the technical, computaional aspects of the lattice method where we detail our setup. Information about the gauge configurations, parameter tunings, propagator inversions and statistical improvements are all given in this part.
