Casimir Scaling of domain wall tensions in the deconfined phase of D = 3 + 1 SU ( N ) gauge theories

Abstract

We perform lattice calculations of the spatial ’t Hooft -string tensions, , in the deconfined phase of SU( ) gauge theories for . These equal (up to a factor of ) the surface tensions of the domain walls between the corresponding (Euclidean) deconfined phases. For our results match on to the known perturbative result, which exhibits Casimir Scaling, . At lower the coupling becomes stronger and, not surprisingly, our calculations show large deviations from the perturbative -dependence. Despite this we find that the behaviour
