Abstract

We study improved Kogut-Susskind fermion actions focusing on flavor symmetry restoration. Several variants of fat actions suitable for dynamical simulations are considered, including an action with no tree level O(a2) errors. The spectrum of all the pions is computed and used as a measure of flavor symmetry violation. Finally, the Naik term is introduced to restore rotational symmetry.
