Dimensional reduction of Lattice Gauge Theory in (2+1)D
This is my Ph.D. thesis defended earlier this year. It contains mostly information already presented in previous Bielefeld/Saclay papers on this subject, though in more detailed form. It also


High density QCD with static quarks.
In this approximation, the deconfinement transition seen at zero density becomes a smooth crossover at very small density (possibly for any nonzero density), and that at low enough temperature chiral symmetry remains broken at all densities.
Fermions obstruct dimensional reduction in hot QCD
We have studied, for the first time, screening masses obtained from glueball-like correlators in quantum chromodynamics with four light dynamical flavors of quarks in the temperature range 1.
QCD and instantons at finite temperature
The current understanding of the behavior of quantum chromodynamics at finite temperature is presented. Perturbative methods are used to explore the high-temperature dynamics. At sufficiently high

It is shown that a global SU(2) symmetry breaks if the temperature is high enough and it is argued that this new transition most likely coincides with deconfinement.
Imaginary chemical potential and finite fermion density on the lattice
Standard lattice fermion algorithms run into the well-known sign problem at real chemical potential. In this paper we investigate the possibility of using imaginary chemical potential, and argue that
Random matrix model of QCD at finite density and the nature of the quenched limit.
A random matrix model is used to study chiral symmetry breaking in QCD at finite chemical potential and it is found that quenched QCD is not a simple $n\ensuremath{\rightarrow}0$ limit of QCD with n quarks.

On the convergence of perturbative QCD at high temperature.
The free energy for QCD at high temperature {ital T} is calculated to order {ital g}{sup 5} using effective-field-theory methods to separate the contributions from the momentum scales 2{pi}{ital T}, and the perturbation series is well behaved if the running coupling constant is sufficiently small.
Spatial string tension in the deconfined phase of (3+1)-dimensional SU(2) gauge theory.
It is shown, for the first time, that the spatial string tension is scaling on the lattice and thus is nonvanishing in the continuum limit, and is temperature independent below [ital T] and rises rapidly above.
Meron-Cluster Solution of Fermion Sign Problems
We present a general strategy to solve the notorious fermion sign problem using cluster algorithms. The method applies to various systems in the Hubbard model family as well as to relativistic
