The Eguchi-Kawai reduction relates gauge theories in different numbers of dimensions in the large N limit provided that certain conditions are met. In principle, this relation opens up the possibility of learning about the dynamics of 4D gauge theories through techniques only available in lower dimensions. Dimensional reduction can be understood as a special case of large N equivalence between theories related by an orbifold projection. In this work, we focus on the simplest case of dimensional reduction, relating a 4D gauge theory to a 3D gauge theory via an orbifold projection. A necessary condition for the large N equivalence between the 4D and 3D theories to hold is that certain discrete symmetries in the two theories must not be broken spontaneously. In pure 4D Yang-Mills theory, these symmetries break spontaneously as the size of one of the spacetime dimensions shrinks. An analysis of the effect of adjoint fermions on the relevant symmetries of the 4D theory shows that the fermions help stabilize the symmetries. We consider the same problem from the point of view of the lower dimensional 3D theory and find that, surprisingly, adjoint fermions are not generally enough to stabilize the necessary symmetries of the 3D theory. In fact, a rich phase diagram arises, with a complicated pattern of symmetry breaking. We discuss the possible causes and consequences of this finding. © 2009 SISSA.}, Doi = {10.1088/1126-6708/2009/10/070}, Key = {fds248412} } @article{fds248413, Author = {Canham, D and Hammer, HW and Springer, R}, Title = {On the scattering of D and D* mesons off the X(3872)}, Journal = {Phys Rev D}, Volume = {D80}, Pages = {014009}, Year = {2009}, Key = {fds248413} } @article{fds248392, Author = {Springer, RP}, Title = {HHChPT applied to the charmed-strange parity partners}, Journal = {Chiral Dynamics 2006 - Proceedings of the 5th International Workshop on Chiral Dynamics, Theory and Experiment, CD 2006}, Pages = {302-303}, Year = {2007}, Month = {December}, Abstract = {We apply heavy hadron chiral perturbation theory (HHChPT) to study the properties of the even- and odd-parity charmed-strange mesons.

The leading contribution to the quadrupole moment of the Δ and other members of the decuplet comes from one-loop graphs. The pionic contribution is shown to be proportional to Iz (and so will not contribute to the quadrupole moment of I=0 nuclei), while the contribution from kaons has both isovector and isoscalar components. The chiral logarithmic enhancement of both pion and kaon loops has a coefficient that vanishes in the SU(6) limit.
