# Adjoint QCD on ℝ3 × S1 with twisted fermionic boundary conditions

@article{Misumi2014AdjointQO, title={Adjoint QCD on ℝ3 × S1 with twisted fermionic boundary conditions}, author={Tatsuhiro Misumi and Takuya Kanazawa}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2014}, volume={2014}, pages={1-43} }

A bstractWe investigate QCD with adjoint Dirac fermions on ℝ3 × S1 with generic boundary conditions for fermions along S1. By means of perturbation theory, semiclassical methods and a chiral effective model, we elucidate a rich phase structure in the space spanned by the S1 compactification scale L, twisted fermionic boundary condition ϕ and the fermion mass m. We found various phases with or without chiral and center symmetry breaking, separated by first- and second-order phase transitions…
