On gauge fixing
Gauge fixing is a useful tool to simplify calculations. It is also valuable to combine different methods, in particular lattice and continuum methods. However, beyond perturbation theory the

Chiral and deconfinement transition from correlation functions: SU(2) vs. SU(3)
We study a gauge-invariant order parameter for deconfinement and the chiral condensate in SU(2) and SU(3) Yang–Mills theory in the vicinity of the deconfinement phase transition using the Landau
Two- and three-point functions in Landau gauge Yang-Mills-Higgs theory
A bstractYang-Mills-Higgs theory offers a rich set of physics. In particular, in some region of its parameter space it has QCD-like behavior, while in some other range it is Higgs-like. Furthermore,
Spectroscopic analysis of the phase diagram of Yang-Mills-Higgs theory
Yang-Mills-Higgs theory, being the standard-model Higgs sector for a suitable choice of gauge and custodial group, offers a rich set of physics. In particular, in some region of its parameter space

Exploratory study of three-point Green's functions in Landau-gauge Yang-Mills theory
Green’s functions are a central element in the attempt to understand non-perturbative phenomena in Yang-Mills theory. Besides the propagators, 3-point Green’s functions play a significant role, since
The Gluon propagator close to criticality
There are good reasons that the deconfinement phase transition of pure Yang-Mills theory at finite temperature should also be reflected in the behavior of gauge-fixed gluonic correlation functions.
