A bstractA three-dimensional effective theory of Polyakov loops has recently been derived from Wilson’s Yang-Mills lattice action by means of a strong coupling expansion. It is valid in the confined phase up to the deconfinement phase transition, for which it predicts the correct order and gives quantitative estimates for the critical coupling. In this work we study its predictive power for further observables like correlation functions and the equation of state. We find that the effective… 
Numerical corrections to the strong coupling effective Polyakov-line action for finite T Yang-Mills theory
We consider a three-dimensional effective theory of Polyakov lines derived previously from lattice Yang-Mills theory and QCD by means of a resummed strong coupling expansion. The effective theory is
Heavy dense QCD and nuclear matter from an effective lattice theory

The ξ/ξ2nd ratio as a test for Effective Polyakov Loop Actions
Effective Polyakov line actions are a powerful tool to study the finite temperature behaviour of lattice gauge theories. They are much simpler to simulate than the original (3+1) dimensional LGTs and

QCD thermodynamics is crucial for the physics of the early universe, heavy ion collisions and compact stars. However, predictions by lattice simulations are very costly or, in the case of nite baryon
Approaches to the sign problem in lattice field theory
Quantum field theories (QFTs) at finite densities of matter generically involve complex actions. Standard Monte-Carlo simulations based upon importance sampling, which have been producing

This paper concludes our efforts in describing $SU(3)$-Yang-Mills theories at different couplings/temperatures in terms of effective Polyakov-loop models. The associated effective couplings are
Effective Polyakov line action from strong lattice couplings to the deconfinement transition
We calculate the effective Polyakov line action corresponding to SU(2) lattice gauge theory on a 16^3 X 4 lattice via the "relative weights" method. We consider a variety of lattice couplings,

Quark confinement in a finite-temperature SU(N) gauge theory is formulated as the realization of a global Z/sub N/ symmetry. Spontaneous breakdown corresponds to a transition to a nonconfining,
