On the running of the bare coupling in SU(N) lattice gauge theories

Abstract

Interpreting the way that the SU(3) bare lattice coupling runs with the lattice spacing is complicated by the fact that there is a smooth cross-over region in which the strong coupling expansion transforms into a weak-coupling one. For N ≥ 5, however, there is a first order bulk transition that cleanly separates the strong and weak coupling regimes. We find… (More)
