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

  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},
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

Spectra of glueballs and oddballs and the equation of state from holographic QCD
We study the spectra of two-gluon glueballs and three-gluon oddballs and corresponding equation of state in 5-dimensional deformed holographic QCD models in the graviton-dilaton system, where theExpand
Spectrum of trace deformed Yang-Mills theories
In this paper we study, by means of numerical simulations, the behaviour of the scalar glueball mass and the ground state of the torelon for the $SU(3)$ trace deformed Yang-Mills theory defined on $Expand


Glueball spectrum and matrix elements on anisotropic lattices
The glueball-to-vacuum matrix elements of local gluonic operators in scalar, tensor, and pseudoscalar channels are investigated numerically on several anisotropic lattices with the spatial latticeExpand
The topological susceptibility on the lattice
Abstract We study the multiplicative renormalization of the topological charge operator on the lattice with respect to the continuum. Apparent discrepancies between different methods of determinationExpand
The glueball spectrum of SU(3) gauge theory in 3 + 1 dimensions
We calculate the low-lying glueball spectrum of the SU(3) lattice gauge theory in 3+1 dimensions for the range of beta up to beta=6.50 using the standard plaquette action. We do so for states in allExpand
On the running of the bare coupling in SU(N) lattice gauge theories
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 expansionExpand
Ergodic sampling of the topological charge using the density of states
In lattice calculations, the approach to the continuum limit is hindered by the severe freezing of the topological charge, which prevents ergodic sampling in configuration space. In order toExpand
Large-N SU(N) Yang-Mills theories with milder topological freezing
We simulate 4d SU(N) pure-gauge theories at large N using a parallel tempering scheme that combines simulations with open and periodic boundary conditions, implementing the algorithm originallyExpand
Glueballs and strings in Sp(2N) Yang-Mills theories
Motivated in part by the pseudo-Nambu Goldstone Boson mechanism of electroweak symmetry breaking in Composite Higgs Models, in part by dark matter scenarios with strongly coupled origin, as well asExpand
Meson spectrum in the large N limit
We present the result of our computation of the lowest lying meson masses for SU(N) gauge theory in the large $N$ limit (with $N_f/N\longrightarrow 0$). The final values are given in units of theExpand
Asymptotic behavior of cutoff effects in Yang–Mills theory and in Wilson’s lattice QCD
Discretization effects of lattice QCD are described by Symanzik’s effective theory when the lattice spacing, a , is small. Asymptotic freedom predicts that the leading asymptotic behavior is $$\simExpand
Glueball spins in D = 3 Yang-Mills
Abstract We determine spins of more than 100 low lying glueball states in D = 2 + 1 dimensional SU (4) gluodynamics by a lattice calculation. We go up to J = 8 in the spin value. We compare theExpand
