Abstract (English)

We present the results of a systematic, first-principles study of the spectrum and decay constants of mesons for different numbers of color charges N, via lattice computations. We discuss the extrapolations to the chiral, continuum and large-N limits and present a comparison of our results to some of the numerical computations and analytical predictions available in the literature.

Wir präsentieren die Ergebnisse einer systematischen, ab initio Studie des Meson-Spektrums und der -Zerfallskonstanten für unterschiedliche Zahlen von Farbladungen N unter Vervwendung von Gittersimulation. Wir diskutieren die Extrapolation zum chiralen, zum Kontinuums- und Large-N Limes und vergleichen unsere Ergebnisse mit einigen der numerischen Berechnungen und analytischen Vorhersagen der Literatur.
