# Lattice study of the conformal window in QCD-like theories.

@article{Appelquist2008LatticeSO, title={Lattice study of the conformal window in QCD-like theories.}, author={Thomas Appelquist and George Tamminga Fleming and Ethan T. Neil}, journal={Physical review letters}, year={2008}, volume={100 17}, pages={ 171607 } }

We study the extent of the conformal window for an SU(3) gauge theory with N{f} Dirac fermions in the fundamental representation. We present lattice evidence for 12<or=N{f}<or=16 that the infrared behavior is governed by a fixed point, while confinement and chiral symmetry breaking are present for N{f}<or=8.
