The 1-loop quantum weight of the SU(N) Kraan-van Baal-Lee-Lu caloron with nontrivial holonomy is calculated. The caloron is the most general self-dual solution with unit topological charge in the 4d Yang-Mills theory with one compactified dimension (finite temperature)

Multi-Calorons Revisited

Analytic Nahm data is re-examined for SU(2) calorons, or periodic instantons, of instanton charge 2. The Nahm equations are solved analytically in terms of Jacobi elliptic functions and the possible

Magnetically charged calorons with non-trivial holonomy

A bstractInstantons in pure Yang-Mills theories on partially periodic space ℝ3×S1$$ {\mathrm{\mathbb{R}}}^3\times {S}^1 $$ are usually called calorons. The background periodicity brings on

Statistical physics of dyons and confinement

We present a semiclassical description of the SU(N) Yang–Mills theory whose partition function at nonzero temperatures is approximated by a saddle point — an ensemble of an infinite number of

An effective thermodynamic potential from the instanton with Polyakov-loop contributions

We derive an effective thermodynamic potential (?eff) at a finite temperature (T ? 0) and zero quark-chemical potential (?R = 0), using the singular-gauge instanton solution and Matsubara formula for

Fermionic determinant for SU(N) caloron with nontrivial holonomy

In the finite-temperature Yang-Mills theory we calculate the functional determinant for fermions in the fundamental representation of the SU(N) gauge group in the background of an instanton with

SU(2) calorons and magnetic monopoles

We investigate the self-dual Yang-Mills gauge configurations on R{sup 3}{times}S{sup 1} when the gauge symmetry SU(2) is broken to U(1) by the Wilson loop. We construct the explicit field

SU(N) caloron measure and its relation to instantons

Calorons of the SU(N) gauge group with nontrivial holonomy, i.e. periodic instantons with arbitrary eigenvalues of the Polyakov line at spatial infinity, can be viewed as composed of N
