SU(4) deconfining transition at strong coupling: A Monte Carlo study

The effective theory describing SU(4) lattice gauge theory at finite temperature and strong coupling is investigated via Monte Carlo methods. A first-order deconfining transition is found.

Deconfining phase transition in lattice QCD.

The first results obtained from the sixteen-processor version of the parallel supercomputer being built at Columbia are presented, suggesting that lattice QCD calculations with the parameter ..beta.. at least as large as 6.07 may approximate the continuum limit.

Suppression of color screening at large N

In large-N QCD, deconfinement by color screening is suppressed. The adjoint string tension is twice the fundamental string tension. Consequences for models of confinement are discussed, and a simple

Nature of the deconfining phase transition in SU(3) lattice gauge theory.

Monte Carlo calculations on lattices with large spatial volume show that the SU(3) deconfining phase transition is more weakly first order than previously thought. We have studied the transition for

Monte Carlo study of SU(4) gauge theory at finite temperature

The pure SU(4) Yang-Mills theory is studied at finite temperature. We observe a first-order transition at 8/g/sub c//sup 2/ = 10.50 +- 0.02.
