Abstract

We investigate a way of circumventing the sign problem in lattice QCD simulations with a theta-vacuum term, using the Polyakov-loop extended Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model. We consider the reweighting method for the QCD Lagrangian after the UA(1) transformation. In the Lagrangian, the P-odd mass term as a cause of the sign problem is minimized. In order to find a good reference system in the reweighting method, we estimate the average reweighting factor by using the two-flavor Polyakov-loop extended Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model and eventually find a good reference system.
