We study the phase diagram as a function of the number of colors and flavors of asymptotically free nonsupersymmetric theories with matter in higher-dimensional representations of arbitrary SU(N) gauge groups. Since matter in higher-dimensional representations screens more than in the fundamental a general feature is that a lower number of flavors is needed to achieve a near-conformal theory.

Conformal or confining -- results from lattice gauge theory for higher-representation gauge theories

We have calculated the running coupling in SU(2), SU(3), and SU(4) gauge theories to see whether they have infrared fixed points. An infrared fixed point means no confinement: It means that the

Conformal windows of Sp(2N) and SO(N) gauge theories

We study the nonperturbative dynamics of nonsupersymmetric asymptotically free gauge theories with fermionic matter in distinct representations of the SO(N) and Sp(2N) gauge groups. We use different

Phase Diagram of Strongly Interacting Theories

We summarize the phase diagrams of SU, SO and Sp gauge theories as function of the number of flavors, colors, and matter representation as well as the ones of phenomenologically relevant chiral gauge

Perturbative improvement of SU(2) gauge theory with two Wilson fermions in the adjoint representation

We present a perturbative calculation of the improvement coefficients of SU(2) gauge theory with adjoint representation Wilson-clover fermions and using Schrodinger functional boundary conditions.

Infrared evolution and phase structure of a gauge theory containing different fermion representations

We study the evolution of an asymptotically free vectorial SU(N) gauge theory from the ultraviolet to the infrared and the resultant phase structure in the general case in which the theory contains

Exceptional and Spinorial Conformal Windows

We study the conformal window of gauge theories containing fermionic matter fields, where the gauge group is any of the exceptional groups with the fermions transforming according to the fundamental

Mass anomalous dimension and running of the coupling in SU(2) with six fundamental fermions

We simulate SU(2) gauge theory with six massless fundamental Dirac fermions. By using the Schrodinger Functional method we measure the running of the coupling and the fermion mass over a wide range
