Abstract

We study strong-coupling lattice QCD with staggered-Wilson fermions, with an emphasis on discrete symmetries and the possibility of their spontaneous breaking. We perform hopping parameter expansion and effective potential analyses in the strong-coupling limit. From gap equations we find the nonzero pion condensate in some range of a mass parameter, which indicates the existence of the parity-broken phase in lattice QCD with staggered-Wilson fermions. We also find massless pions and PCAC relations around the second-order phase boundary. These results suggest that we can take a chiral limit by tuning a mass parameter in lattice QCD with staggered-Wilson fermions as we would with the Wilson fermion.
