A Class of Saddle-point Configurations in Three-dimensional Su(2) Lattice Gauge Theory

Abstract

We discuss a class of saddle-point conngurations in SU(2) lattice gauge theory in three Euclidean dimensions. These conngurations are smooth on the scale of the lattice and have an action density exhibiting localized peaks, as has been seen in cooled and extremized Monte Carlo generated lattices. Large Wilson loops centered on the action peaks show a unit… (More)
