The Electroweak Phase Transition: A Non-Perturbative Analysis
We study on the lattice the 3d SU(2)+Higgs model, which is an effective theory of a large class of 4d high temperature gauge theories. Using the exact constant physics curve, continuum (V → ∞, a → 0)Expand
Generic rules for high temperature dimensional reduction and their application to the Standard Model
We formulate the rules for dimensional reduction of a generic finite temperature gauge theory to a simpler three-dimensional effective bosonic theory in terms of a matching of Green’s functions inExpand
3D physics and the electroweak phase transition: Perturbation theory
We develop a method for the construction of the effective potential at high temperatures based on the effective field theory approach and renormalization group. It allows one to sum up the leadingExpand
The Pressure of hot QCD up to g6 ln(1/g)
The free energy density, or pressure, of QCD has at high temperatures an expansion in the coupling constant g, known so far up to order g^5. We compute here the last contribution which can beExpand
Thermodynamics of AdS/QCD
We study finite temperature properties of four dimensional QCD-like gauge theories in the gauge theory/gravity duality picture. The gravity dual contains two deformed 5d AdS metrics, with and withoutExpand
On finite-temperature holographic QCD in the Veneziano limit
A bstractHolographic models in the T = 0 universality class of QCD in the limit of large number Nc of colors and Nf massless fermion flavors, but constant ratio xf = Nf/Nc, are analyzed at finiteExpand
3d SU(N) + adjoint Higgs theory and finite-temperature QCD
We study to what extent the three-dimensional SU(N) + adjoint Higgs theory can be used as an effective theory for finite temperature SU(N) gauge theory, with N = 2,3. The parameters of the 3d theoryExpand
n-particle phase space in terms of invariant momentum transfers
Abstract A new recursion relation relating the n -particle phase space integral R n to R n −1 is derived. Using this, R n is transformed into a form in which the n −1 independent invariant momentumExpand
Quantum and stringy corrections to the equation of state of holographic QCD matter and the nature of the chiral transition
We consider the finite temperature phase diagram of holographic QCD in the Veneziano limit (${N}_{c}\ensuremath{\rightarrow}\ensuremath{\infty}$, ${N}_{f}\ensuremath{\rightarrow}\ensuremath{\infty}$Expand
A holographic model for QCD in the Veneziano limit at finite temperature and density
A bstractA holographic model of QCD in the limit of large number of colors, Nc, and massless fermion flavors, Nf , but constant ratio xf = Nf/Nc is analyzed at finite temperature and chemicalExpand
