Abstract

The s-wave kaon–antikaon ( Open image in new window ) scattering length is studied by lattice QCD using pion masses m π =330–466 MeV. Through wall sources without gauge fixing, we calculate Open image in new window four-point functions in the I=1 channel with the “Asqtad”-improved staggered fermion formulation, and observe an attractive signal, which is consistent with pioneering lattice studies on Open image in new window potential. Extrapolating the Open image in new window scattering length to the physical point, we obtain Open image in new window , where the first error is statistical and the second is systematic. These simulations are conducted with MILC gauge configurations at lattice spacing a≈0.15 fm.
