# Dynamical mass generation in Landau gauge QCD

@article{Fischer2005DynamicalMG, title={Dynamical mass generation in Landau gauge QCD}, author={Christian S. Fischer and Felipe J Llanes-Estrada and Reinhard Alkofer}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Phenomenology}, year={2005}, volume={141}, pages={128-133} }

We summarise results on the infrared behaviour of Landau gauge QCD from the Green's functions approach and lattice calculations. Approximate, nonperturbative solutions for the ghost, gluon and quark propagators as well as first results for the quark-gluon vertex from a coupled set of Dyson-Schwinger equations are compared to quenched and unquenched lattice results. Almost quantitative agreement is found for all three propagators. Similar effects of unquenching are found in both approaches. The… Expand
