We present a non-perturbative study of the phase diagram of SU(2) Yang-Mills theory in a five-dimensional spacetime with a compact extra dimension. The nonrenormalizable theory is regularized on an…

Abstract
We study the phase diagram of 5-dimensional SU(2) Yang-Mills theory on the lattice. We consider two extensions of the fundamental plaquette Wilson action in the search for the continuous…

Effective gauge theories on domain walls via bulk confinement

We study with lattice techniques the localisation of gauge fields on domain wall defects in 2+1 dimensions, following a scenario originally proposed by Dvali and Shifman for 3+1 dimensions, based on…

Localisation and mass generation for non-Abelian gauge fields

It has been suggested recently that in the presence of suitably “warped” extra dimensions, the low-energy limit of pure gauge field theory may contain massive elementary vector bosons localised on a…
