Quark liberation at high temperature: A Monte Carlo study of SU(2) gauge theory

- L. Mclerran, B. Svetitsky
- Physics
- 15 July 1981

Quark confinement in a finite-temperature SU(N) gauge theory is formulated as the realization of a global Z/sub N/ symmetry. Spontaneous breakdown corresponds to a transition to a nonconfining,… Expand

A Monte Carlo study of SU(2) Yang-Mills theory at finite temperature

- L. Mclerran, B. Svetitsky
- Physics
- 8 January 1981

Abstract We employ Monte Carlo methods to study SU(2) Yang-Mills theory in the absence of fermions, on a lattice, at finite temperature. We determine the temperature at which a second-order… Expand

Symmetry aspects of finite-temperature confinement transitions

- B. Svetitsky, Benjamin Svetitsky
- Physics
- 1 February 1986

Abstract Analytical and numerical work on confinement phase transitions in finite-temperature Abelian and non-Abelian gauge theories is reviewed. These transitions are order-disorder transitions and… Expand

Spectroscopy of SU(4) composite Higgs theory with two distinct fermion representations

- Venkitesh Ayyar, T. DeGrand, +5 authors B. Svetitsky
- Physics
- 2 October 2017

We have simulated the SU(4) lattice gauge theory coupled to dynamical fermions in the fundamental and two-index antisymmetric (sextet) representations simultaneously. Such theories arise naturally in… Expand

Metastable nonconfining states in SU(3) lattice gauge theory with sextet fermions

- Olga Machtey, B. Svetitsky
- Physics
- 4 November 2009

We study the SU(3) lattice gauge theory, with two flavors of sextet Wilson-clover fermions, near its finite-temperature phase transition. We find metastable states that have Wilson line expectation… Expand

Nonperturbative beta function in three-dimensional electrodynamics

- Ohad Raviv, Y. Shamir, B. Svetitsky
- Physics
- 27 May 2014

We apply the Schr\"odinger functional method to the Abelian gauge theory in three dimensions with ${N}_{f}=2$ four-component fermions. We find that the calculated beta function does not cross zero in… Expand

Quantum electrodynamics on a lattice: A Hamiltonian variational approach to the physics of the weak-coupling region

- S. Drell, H. Quinn, B. Svetitsky, M. Weinstein
- Physics
- 15 January 1979

We develop and apply a Hamiltonian variational approach to the study of quantum electrodynamics formulated on a spatial lattice in both 2 + 1 and 3 + 1 dimensions. Two lattice versions of QED are… Expand

First Order Phase Transition in the SU(3) Gauge Theory at Finite Temperature

- L. Yaffe, B. Svetitsky
- Physics
- 15 August 1982

We argue that the phase transition which separates the low-temperature confining phase from the high-temperature nonconfining phase in the SU(3) gauge theory (without quarks) is first order.

Infrared fixed point in SU(2) gauge theory with adjoint fermions

- T. DeGrand, Y. Shamir, B. Svetitsky
- Physics
- 14 February 2011

We apply Schroedinger-functional techniques to the SU(2) lattice gauge theory with N{sub f}=2 flavors of fermions in the adjoint representation. Our use of hypercubic smearing enables us to work at… Expand
