Phase structure and Hosotani mechanism in gauge theories with compact dimensions revisited
A bstractWe investigate the phase structure of SU(3) gauge theory in four and five dimensions with one compact dimension by using perturbative one-loop and PNJL-model- based effective potentials,
Renormalizable extra-dimensional models
Non-Abelian gauge theories may have continuum limits in more than four dimensions, supported by non-trivial ultra-violet fixed points. Moreover, such theories can be expected to be accessible to
On the large N limit of SU(N) lattice gauge theories in five dimensions
A bstractWe develop the necessary tools for computing fluctuations around a mean-field background in the context of SU(N) lattice gauge theories in five dimensions. In particular, expressions for the
The phase diagram of Yang-Mills theory with a compact extra dimension
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
Searching for continuous phase transitions in 5D SU(2) lattice gauge theory
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


Gauge and Global Symmetries at High Temperature
It is shown how finite-temperature effects in a renormalizable quantum field theory can restore a symmetry which is broken at zero temperature. In general, for both gauge symmetries and ordinary
Phase Transition and String Formation in Six-Dimensional Gauge Theory
We consider an SU(2) gauge theory in six-dimensions. We show that there exists non-trivial structure of gauge vacua in compactified background M4 X S2. In this circumstances, there can exist a cosmic
Kaluza-Klein model on M4×S1 with SU(N) gauge fields and Nf fermions in fundamental representation is considered. It is noted that on one-loop level the lowest state of this theory corresponds to
Wilson line in finite-temperature gauge theories
The phases of SU(N) gauge theories at finite temperature can be analyzed in terms of the Wilson line L(x) = TrP exp(ig..integral../sub 0//sup ..beta../A/sub 0/(x,tau)dtau). The question of
Effective potential for the order parameter of gauge theories at finite temperature
SU(n) gauge theories at finite temperature T = ..beta../sup -1/ are analyzed in terms of the spontaneous breakdown of a Z(n) symmetry corresponding to the order parameter L(x) = (1/n)Tr P
