Strong coupling constant and heavy quark masses in (2+1)-flavor QCD

Speaker : Dr. Johannes Weber (MSU)


I present three determinations of the strong coupling constant and one of the heavy quark masses in (2+1)-flavor QCD using lattice calculations with Highly Improved Staggered Quark (HISQ) action and extremely fine lattices. I discuss a determination using the moments of the pseudo-scalar quarkonium correlators at several values of the heavy valence quark mass and two complementary determinations of the strong coupling constant using the energy or singlet free energy of a static quark-antiquark pair at zero and finite temperature.
