# SU(N) gauge theories in 3+1 dimensions: glueball spectrum, string tensions and topology

@article{Athenodorou2021SUNGT, title={SU(N) gauge theories in 3+1 dimensions: glueball spectrum, string tensions and topology}, author={Andreas Athenodorou and M. Teper}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Lattice}, year={2021} }

We calculate the low-lying glueball spectra, some string tensions and some properties of topology and the running coupling for SU(N) lattice gauge theories in 3+1 dimensions, for N=2 to N=12, and for glueball states in all the representations of the cubic rotation group, as well as P and C. We extrapolate these results to the continuum limit of each theory and then to N=oo. For a number of these states we are able to identify their continuum spins with very little ambiguity. We calculate the… Expand
