We compute the topological susceptibility Xt of 2+1-flavor lattice QCD with dynamical Möbius domain-wall fermions, whose residual mass is kept at 1 MeV or smaller. In our analysis, we focus on the fluctuation of the topological charge density in a “slab” sub-volume of the simulated lattice, as proposed by Bietenholz et al. The quark mass dependence of our results agrees well with the prediction of the chiral perturbation theory, from which the chiral condensate is extracted. Combining the results for the pion mass Mπ and decay constant Fπ, we obtain Xt = 0.227(02)(11)M2πF2π at the physical point, where the first error is statistical and the second is systematic.
