Chapter 3 Correlator fit

3.0.1 different tentatives of fitting the l-l correlator

Here we try to interpolate the correlator at \(t_0=0.2 fm\), we use the following function to interpolate:

  • C_{l}^{eq}_2exp: \(N (P[0]e^{P[1](t)}+P[2]e^{P[3](t)})\)
  • C_{l}^{eq}_1exp: \(N (P[0]e^{P[1](t)})\)
  • C_{l}^{eq}_poly2: \(P[0]+P[1](t-t_0)+P[2](t-t_0)^2\)
  • C_{l}^{eq}_poly3: \(P[0]+P[1](t-t_0)+P[2](t-t_0)^2+P[3](t-t_0)^3\)

\(N\) is not a fit parameter but a normalization to ensure that the correlator at \(t_0\) is \(c(t_0)=P[0]\), for istance in C_{l}^{eq}_1exp \(N=e^{-P[1]t_0}\) The most promising one is the C_{l}^{eq}_2exp using 4 points. Below result and plot for each of the fits.

Notice we are plotting in log10 scale and the polynomial get distorted
