Strongly coupled gauge systems with many fermions are important in many phenomenological models. I use the 2-lattice matching Monte Carlo renormalization group method to study the fixed point structure and critical indexes of SU(3) gauge models with 8 and 12 flavors of fundamental fermions. With an improved renormalization group block transformation I am able to connect the perturbative and confining regimes of the N{sub f}=8 flavor system, thus verifying its QCD-like nature. With N{sub f}=12… Expand
Thermodynamic Lattice Study for Preconformal Dynamics in Strongly Flavored Gauge Theory
By using the lattice Monte-Carlo simulation, we investigate the finite temperature chiral phase transition in color SU(3) gauge theories with various species of fundamental fermions, and discuss theExpand
The Infrared behavior of SU(3) Nf=12 gauge theory -about the existence of conformal fixed point-
Incorporated with twisted boundary condition, Polyakov loop correlators can give a definition of the renormalized coupling. We employ this scheme for the step scaling method (with step size s = 2) inExpand

Critical couplings and string tensions via lattice matching of renormalization group decimations
Critical couplings and string tensions in SU(2) and SU(3) lattice gauge theory are calculated by two-lattice matching of RG block transformations. The transformations are of the potential moving typeExpand
