Ž . We determine all SU 2 caloron solutions with topological charge one and arbitrary Polyakov loop at spatial infinity Ž Ž .. with trace 2cos 2pv , using the Nahm duality transformation and ADHM. By explicit computations we show that the 3 1 ' moduli space is given by a product of the base manifold R =S and a Taub-NUT space with mass Ms1r 8v 1y2v , Ž . 1 1 w x for vg 0, , in units where S sRrZ. Implications for finite temperature field theory and string duality between 2 Kaluza-Klein and H… CONTINUE READING
