# Phase transitions for gauge theories on tori from the AdS/CFT correspondence

@article{Page2008PhaseTF, title={Phase transitions for gauge theories on tori from the AdS/CFT correspondence}, author={Don N Page}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2008}, volume={2008}, pages={037-037} }

The vacuum of a large-N gauge field on a p-torus has a spatial stress tensor with tension along the direction of smallest periodicity and equal pressures (but p times smaller in magnitude) along the other directions, assuming an AdS/CFT correspondence and a refined form of the Horowitz-Myers positive-energy conjecture. For infinite N, the vacuum exhibits a phase transition when the lengths of the two shortest periodicities cross. A comparison is made with the Surya-Schleich-Witt phase…
