Monte-Carlo Renormalisation Group for Lattice QCD.
The properties of the SU(2) and SU(3) lattice gauge theories are investigated using the Real Space Monte -Carlo Renormalisation Group method. The "SQRT.(3 block transformation" is found to be very efficient in this analysis. The non-perturbative (beta)-function is calculated for the SU(2) lattice gauge theory over a large range of couplings and along both the Wilson axis and the Migdal-Kadanoff improved action line. A possible explanation of the observed non-perturbative features of the (beta)-function is given. The same data sample is used to calculate the improved action needed for better numerical simulations, and the results are compared with those obtained using the Migdal-Kadanoff approximate renormalisation and Symanzik's perturbative improvement approach. A similar but less extensive analysis is done for the SU(3) lattice gauge theory as well. The results indicate that even for the pure gauge theory, the present day Monte-Carlo calculations are far from establishing an agreement with the expected asymptotic scaling. However, an improved action approach, combined with the (beta)-function determined using the Monte-Carlo Renormalisation Group technique, should make it possible to convincingly demonstrate the scaling behaviour in near future.
