  • Hansen, Christian; Jansson, Michael; Chernozhukov, Victor V. (Elsevier, 2009-01)
    Under minimal assumptions, finite sample confidence bands for quantile regression models can be constructed. These confidence bands are based on the “conditional pivotal property” of estimating equations that quantile ...

    We study the region of the QCD phase transition using 2+1 flavors of domain wall fermions and a 16[superscript 3]×8 lattice volume with a fifth dimension of L[subscript s]=32. The disconnected light quark chiral susceptibility, ...
  • Detmold, William; Flynn, Michael (American Physical Society, 2015-04)
    We derive the relations necessary for the extraction of matrix elements of multihadron systems from finite-volume lattice QCD calculations. We focus on systems of n ≥ 2 weakly interacting identical particles without spin. ...
