  • We have performed numerical simulations of SU(3) gauge theory coupled to ${N}_{f}=2$ flavors of symmetric-representation fermions. The fermions are discretized with the tadpole-improved clover action. Our simulations are done on lattices of length $L=6$, 8, and 12. In all simulation volumes we observe a crossover from a strongly coupled confined phase to a weak-coupling deconfined phase. Degeneracies in screening masses, plus the behavior of the pseudoscalar decay constant, indicate that the… CONTINUE READING
